I was given the wonderful opportunity to accompany my sister to Italy next week for two weeks! I am beyond excited. My son has been twice, but I have never been to Italy.
Rome, Florence and Venice...wish granted, thank you dear sister! Her traveling companion cancelled at the last minute and she has invited me to take her place. This is a real dream come true. I know I'll be seeing the same sites my son saw:
But tell me friends, have you been to these cities and if so, what are the highlights I should see?
I am aware of the touristy sites and art galleries, but what about markets or shopping?
