jane in italy

while laura was in nyc/boston, i (jane) went to italy ! i made it to venice, florence, rome, pompeii, and naples. i loved every second of it from the food to the history to the italian culture. i took lots and lots of pictures in hopes that i will never forget this awesome adventure.

venice: by far my favorite place that i went to. it was so cool to see a city where all transportation is on water and through canals. the colors were vibrant and beautiful from the water taxis to the buildings.

florence: this was where my favorite gelato place was ! we stayed right new to the beautiful santa maria cathedral with the famous dome. everywhere we went, and especially here, the people were so welcoming and friendly. florence is known for being the birthplace of many famous renaissance era figure such as michelangelo, dante, leanardo de vinci, botticelli, brunelleschi, donatello, and the medici family.

rome: wow. rome was so so cool. i didn’t realize how huge of a city it was (2.6 million). we made it to vatican city multiple times, caught up with friends who live in the area, and learned all about the ancient romans.

pompeii and naples: i didn’t spend too much time at either but thought both were gorgeous and definitely want to come back.

for one of the first times ever, i packed perfectly for the excursions and weather. i usually wore my red converse, brown leather shoes, or my tennis shoes. i was able to bring minimal tops and bottoms and mix and match them. these items plus a rain coat and light (reversible!) winter coat were all i needed.

red converse here, leather shoes from madewell last season but similar ones here, and new balance here. rain coat here and reversible jacket (in a different color) here.

every time i travel i am always amazed with how much a i learn and pick up about history, culture, and even language. i love the idea of immersing yourself into a completely different world and learning that way. i have experienced this across the globe and even in a neighboring city. i am so grateful to be able to travel and am looking forward to future adventures. ciao !
