Today is a go, go, go, cram everything in kind of day. We are waking up in Venice and ending the day in Rome.
We got up at 4am (well i woke up at 2am and couldn’t get back to sleep) and caught a train to Verona, the home of Romeo and Juliet!
We only stayed in Verona about 3 hours, just long enough to catch the major sights. But they were pretty great. We were there right as the city was waking up!
Espresso and a pastry were a must!
We made it to Juliet’s house just as it was opening and beat the crowds, then something amazing happened, a choir was visiting….just listen.
Found a big church to explore. It was beautiful inside!
Now its back on the train to Florence!
We stayed in Florence for about 1.5 hours, no where near long enough but I’ll take it over not stopping at all. We got Gelato
and saw an incredible church
and some crazy square with insane statues
and stopped at the Hard Rock Cafe for appetizers, thankfully they had a locally sourced appetizer….and it was delicious!!
We overestimated our time a bit which left us literally running tp catch our train.
Back on the train for a quick stop in Pisa!
We were here the bare minimum, just long enough to get to the tower, see it lean, walk in the cathedral, get some dinner and its back on the train to ROME!!
I am soooo exhausted am going to sleep so good tonight hahaha. Even though I’m exhausted I am going to take some melatonin tonight to make sure I don’t have a repeat of last night.
