|How cool is this place?!?!|
|In St. Peter's Square outside of the Vatican|
|Hanging out on the Spanish Steps|
|The infamous Trevi Fountain. And yes we each threw a penny in|
|Mom, Dad, JR and I in Campo de Fiori grabbing a beer before our evening walk through the city|
|The views in Spello were incredible. This is on top of the hill where we stayed.|
|JR and I at dinner on the last night. The food was DELICIOUS!|
|Here we are in Perugia enjoying the view from the top of the hill. You could see close to 6 cities from there.|
|Bob, JR and dad at the cooking class the four of us took. Maybe the best thing we did while in Italy!|
|The view of the country-side just outside of our apartment in Umbria. Beautiful!!!|
After Rome we took a train 2 hours outside of the city into Umbria to a city called Spello. It was simply beautiful there. The town in literally nestled into the side of a hill. All of the streets are cobblestone, the buildings are all made out of the old limestone that you saw in the Ancient city, and the nonnas (Italian for grandma) were adorable. There was only one bakery there and it closed at 12:30. We were told to go early because there are times where he runs out of bread by 10/10:30 and closes up shop. So all of our pastries and bread each morning were fresh. We enjoyed the quiet and quaint village after coming from the busy metropolitan area. The time seemed to fly by while we were in Spello but we enjoyed every bit of it.
It's nice to be home now and sleep in my own bed, but the vacation was wonderful and refreshing. I hope you enjoy the pictures! I may post more later.....
..til next time
