Verona is just 45 minutes from our front door, so with a free afternoon we decided to go explore and start putting our To-Do list together. With so much history in Italy, I feel like we need to visit every city a few times to be able to see everything, so sometimes it's nice to go check it out and explore and make a list (Can you tell I'm Type A?) of what to see and do and then get to researching. ...

Although the weather looked look it might rain, we braved the clouds and headed to Asiago to explore. Asiago is the largest plateau of Italy and absolutely beautiful.

We stumbled upon Cittadella two weekends ago while trying to get to Bassano del Grappa and looked around for a little bit - but didn't get to explore as much as we wanted to - so today was the perfect opportunity to make it a day trip! We took the bus from just outside of base to the train station downtown ( €2 each person) and then bought tickets for the train ride to Cittadella (€17 roundtrip ... Read the Post

fullsizeoutput_44f8

Last weekend we decided to get out of our hotel room and to test out the public transportation to explore Bassano del Grappa - a nearby town that features the 'famous' bridge of the Alpini. Getting there was a bit of a trick, but ended up being completely worth it for the amazing day trip! We packed our backpacks, charged the camera and got Presleys umbrella stroller ready to explore. Because we ... Read the Post
