This summer, Anna and I traveled to Europe for our epic vacation. Anna and I have traveled in Western Europe quite a bit but had not yet explored the Adriatic or Mediterranean. We have friends in Tuscany but had never been to Rome in any meaningful way, so Anna found a spectacular Celebrity Cruise Line cruise departing from Venice for 14 days through the Adriatic to both Split and Dubrovnik, then to Istanbul, Ephesus, and the Greek Islands. We like to cruise to get a feel for new geography more than anything.
Before hopping on the cruise, we organized a very nice hotel in Rome near the Vatican and spent 4 days scouring the historical sites and ate more pizza and prosciutto than you can imagine. Then we took the train to Tuscany and spent 2 nights with our good friends, the Bergman’s. After visiting with them, we took the train from Pisa to Venice and jumped aboard the amazing Celebrity Constellation for this 14-day extravaganza.
So, we start off our epic vacation in Rome, Italy!
