our trip to italy, june 2016

We landed in Milan and took the train to Venice. The days we were there the weather was warm and humid and the city beautiful.

We started our first day by taking the vaporetto (ferry) down the grand canal.

We got off at St. Marks Square and were surprised to find the square flooded. So we rolled up our clothes and took off our shoes.

The next day for lunch we went to a great cafeteria for lunch.

Then we walked around and visited the Peggy Guggenheim Museum (a must if you’re into modern art).160617_per_0009_venice160617_per_0025_venice160617_per_0014_venice

We headed back to St. Marks Square and went up into the tower to get some great views.

We started dinner early with cichetti (small individual appetizers) and wine.

Then for dinner I had branzino and Al had pizza, of course (If he has the choice, it’s always pizza).

We rented a car and drove south to Montepulciano in Tuscany and stayed at this lovely family-run hotel.

The super sweet owner Roberto wanted photos with both of us!

The town was perched atop a hill with winding steep streets and endless beautiful building facades.

The next day there was more exploring and wine tasting!

The wineries were so incredible. They’re all centuries old and are built into the hills, so that the barrel rooms are deep underground with nice constant cool temperatures. The wine of Montepulciano is vino nobile.

This room was for aging pecorino.

The next day we drove through a few other small towns.
