Last month we took a five day trip to Italy. It was our most ambitious travel plan yet since we were bringing along our kids and we wanted to visit three cities: Pisa, Florence, and Venice. It was a wonderful trip and we were able to see a lot of things. It started to get really cold by the end of the trip (see here!) so I wish we could do Venice over with a little bit warmer weather but other than that it was totally doable. First, we flew into Pisa and made a quick stop to see the tower before jumping on a train to Florence.

I fell in love with Florence. It is such a beautiful city and so inspiring. I would love to spend more time there. We rented an apartment through AirBnb, which was a really good experience. After a few days we took a train to Venice where we stayed at the La Piscina hotel (loved it!) Venice is so pretty it felt like we were at Disneyland. Every square inch of that place is so charming that it almost felt fake. I can’t wait to visit when it is warmer.
