Pictures from our Viva Italia Trip

Kevin asked me to repost these here so those of us going on the May Viva Italia trip can get excited. Like we need an excuse.

These are from Part 1 of our Adventure.....Rome:


Our Hotel in Rome


The Trevi Fountain


On our way to the Pantheon from the Trevi Fountain we walked through a small mall. This Christmas decoration seemed to catch everyone's eye.


The Pantheon


Christmas Market in Rome


Disney is everywhere!!!!


St. Peter's Square.....empty.


Inside St. Peter's


The Pieta

More pictures. Day 2 - Tuscanny (Orvieto & Florence).


The Tuscan countryside on our way out of Rome.


A random street in Orvieto. I was enchanted.....


Our 'major' purchase this trip - a vase in Orvieto. It stands about 3 feet tall and is gorgeous!!!


Piazza di Signoria - steps from our hotel in Florence.


Florence in the rain on Christmas Eve.


An almost empty Academia. You're not supposed to take pictures in here so I have no idea how this one got in with ours


A wonderful cafe we found right next to the Florence leather market. I want to live here!!! It was called Trattoria San Lorenzo.
