Italy

Italy, one of the most beautiful and historical places I have visited thus far. For 10 days, I explored 8 cities within Italy. I rode through the canals of Venice and stepped outside the city with the locals of Mestre. Then, I visited Juliet’s Balcony in Verona, where the walls are plastered with love letters. Florence took my heart with it’s Duomo and it’s night life. I then hopped on a train to visit the leaning tower of Pisa in Pisa, Italy. Next,I visited a city on top of a hill called Orvieto, where you have to reach this land by a funicular. Then, I went to the ancient city of Rome, where I walked the same paths of history’s greatest emperors. Next, I was headed off to the Vatican city, the smallest country in the world, where I got to witness a body of a real pope, preserved for over a century.  FOLLOW ME AROUND ITALY

EF Ultimate Break

EF Ultimate Break

If you are curious on how a budget girl like me affords travel, check out some of my posts here. With this trip, I actually went through a company called EF Ultimate Break. It was a group of about 22 of us including an AMAZING tour director! EF Ultimate allows you to make installed payments of your trip to help with you personal budgets and it includes flights, hotels, excursions and more! Check them out! I recommend this company if it is going to be your first time flying outside the country! Don’t worry if you’re alone. You will meet so many life long friends. Within my group, only 7 people came together, that’s 15 people who came on their own!

    Was wondering if you did the excursions? If not, why? I was looking into the Cinque Terre and was wondering if it’s worth it, or if i should just take the free day to explore florence instead? I plan to go in May!

      Hi!!!!! Thank you for reaching out!!! So I didn’t do that excursion only because they didn’t offer it that time of yeae. I think from oct to jan. That excursion isn’t available. However, there were a group of 2 girls who went on their own but it took them 3 hrs and a lot of things were closed but keep in mind it’s only because I was there in off season. If that excursion is apart of your trip during the time you go DEFINITELY go lol so in may I believe it should be available. As for the Duomo I did not climb it only because I didn’t have time or wanted to make time for it. It was just a personal preference. Seeing the actual building was good to me and I still had amazing views from Florence from our hostel
