Whew! It makes me tired just thinking about how much ground we covered. I hoped to give them a glimpse of places that we love, as well as some "must see's" of Italy. Next time, which I am hoping is sooner rather than later, we can be a bit more focused in our exploration and resort back to the way we like to travel ... slowly. However, we didn't even visit Sicily or Abruzzo or Umbria or Tuscany or Puglia! Mamma Mia.
And then there is France. All of it.
They just need to move here, obviously.
PS. No gladiators (blond-headed cousins) were harmed in the Colloseum.
PPS. The camera ban has been lifted at the Accademia in Florence.
PPPS. Hire a guide at Pompeii.
