What to do in Italy in 15 days
Rome, Cinque Terre, Florence, Dolomites, Venice
Trying to figure out what to do in a new country can be extremely difficult, so my first call was to Marissa Grad at Travel Happier. Marissa, helped us book our travel from Honolulu to Rome and back home from Venice and gave us an idea of the best ways to navigate throughout Italy. After figuring out how to get to Italy, we grabbed some travel guide books from Rick Steves and Lonely Planet and checked out travel blogs and found Italy vlogs on YouTube... but there's only so much you can learn from other peoples' experiences.
For me, a big part of exploration is getting lost and finding your way, so though we figured out a basic itinerary for each city, we also left a lot of time for roaming aimlessly.
Rome was the first stop on our trip, where we visited the Colosseum, the Forum, Trevi Fountain, the Vatican and all the other "Must See" stops for tourists.
Our second stop was the coastal city of Cinque Terre. There is always some debate over which coastal city to see when visiting Italy... the Amalfi Coast or Cinque Terre. For Joanne and I, it boiled down to location. Amalfi was further south, and our journey took us north, so it was a much more convenient one-day detour to squeeze in Cinque Terre on our way to Florence.
After Cinque Terre, we booked a train to Florence... home of the Renaissance. The Boboli Gardens and Uffizi Gallery were remarkable places to wander and take in the artwork I had only seen via my art history text books in college.
Taking a little break from the cities— we traveled through Bolzano where we rented a car to drive deeper into the remote and tranquil Dolomites.
After spending a few days in solitude in the Dolomites we made our way to Venice. Streets made of water, seafood everywhere you look. and the sweet and romantic sunsets Italy is famous for.
It was bittersweet leaving Italy but I’m so grateful for the time that I got to spend with my wife.
