Our trip to Italy.

Monday, June 11, 2012

wiev from our first hotel
The countryside is really beautiful,lots of flowers for DD to take photos of, and lots of windows for me
We did tour Rome on bus and hopped on and off

.Collosseum and the Vatican a must and here are all the passed popes
whom are Resting in this place.Then we have to go and find a funktioning GPS contact, we tried 2 hertz's places both were closed down so we drove on to Florence
and there we got help,and a new plug ,woohoo that worked,
one of my fav.statues.LOL on our way we also encounered a car race to just begin (great looking cars)
and a beautiful drive

So on we go wine tastings at the countryside, some more flowers and windows at the estate
Then it is time for a road trip and a new hotel, and Sienna , view from our hotel.
and here is Sienna , very quaint pg">
Now our trip is almost over, leaving the mountains,traveling through Bolagna as the quake rumbles, our next hotel is outside Venice so we can go by train.
what do you know, another window,,,,
Here is a lovely church we visited after lunch some more sightseeing by boat and foot.
Then it was time to pack ag back home.
I got to spend a couple more days in DC and we visited the Kreeger museum and
DC Cathedral.
