...and hello Europe!
I hope to see the bear pit here along with Einstein's house and the Rosegarten. We're not spending a lot of time here, but enough time to see and explore!
There is so much I want to see here...The Duomo, The Boboli Gardens, The Ufizi...I could go on and on! My list for Florence is never ending!
From here we plan to take a day trip to Cinque Terre...several people have told me that they think this is the most beautiful place on earth. Now I get to be the judge myself!
A friend of mine who was a French major and has been to France on several occasions has told me that this is, hands down, her favorite place to visit in France. We're hoping to do some relaxing here, as I gather that it's more of a beach town/vacation area than a lot of our other stops. We're excited to enjoy the beaches here along with visits to some other nearby towns (Cannes, Monaco, St. Raphael) and the local market, Cours Saleya.
This is one part of the trip where I actually have done very little research. Good thing I have my guide books to read through on our travels before we get there! We're thinking a boat tour on the lake, but that's about it for now. Any recommendations?
So there ya have it. If you have any last minute recommendations of things to do/see/eat! while we're there, please share!
