And We're Off!

Tomorrow we're leaving for our big trip and we're so, so excited. Normally I hate this time of year with all the sorting and packing and storing and cleaning but this year it felt fun because we're going on a big adventure. We're taking four weeks (!!) and we're heading SOUTH. Here's our route:

Tomorrow morning we'll be taking the bus from Cortina to Venice where we'll hop on a train and make our way over to Cinque Terre. We're staying in Corniglia which is the middle of the five towns and is perched up on a cliff.

From there we'll head to Rome for three nights. We're going to do a food tour and a day trip to Orvieto.

Then we're going to the eastern side of Italy, to Bari for a few nights. While in Bari, we'll do more day trips, including Alberobello, the caves, and Matera.

Then back to the the west side, to a tiny town called Massa Lubrense where we'll stay for five nights. From there, we'll visit Pompeii and explore tiny towns like Positano and Ravello on the Amalfi Coast.

And THEN, we're taking the (overnight!) ferry to Sicily, where we'll stay for a week before flying back to Venice at the end of the month.
