June 1: Milan, Italy – Perio Rotto Youth Hostel
June 2-5: Venice – A Venice Fish Hostel
(The hostel is right across the street from the World Heritage Olympic Theatre!)
June 7-10: Florence – Tourist House, Santa Croce & Ostello Villa Camerata
June 11: Pisa – Hostel Pisa
June 12-13: Vernazza, Cinque Terre – Gianni Franzi
Rick Steve’s suggested a “splurge” on lodging in Vernazza in his guidebook. (RickSteves.com) I’m so glad I took him up on his suggestion. This place looks absolutely tantalizing and a great place to serve as home base while hiking the Cinque Terre coastline trails!)
Well, that covers Italy, my friends. Oh, my goodness – I can hardly wait to actually visit these beautiful places!
Next, we’ll venture back into France (near the first timeshare I will be staying at the beginning of the trip) and will be working my way back to Paris to complete the full circuit. From Paris, I will catch an airplane to Scotland and continue my adventure but will have to say Au Revoir to my travelling companions, Jack & Debbie.
I don’t know about you, but looking at all these places and seeing this food is making me very hungry! I am going to take a break from my posting and fix myself something Italian for lunch! Arrivederci!
