Florence is the home of my favorite thing in the world — gelato 😉 The art and architecture aren’t bad either.
Siena — the heart of Tuscany. We were lucky to be there for Palio di Siena, a famous horse race and festival, that had the tiny streets packed with people in festive costumes. One of the highlights was exploring parts of the cathedral that are not usually open to visitors.
Rome still ranks among my favorite cities, even though I’ve been here a dozen times. Some of my favorite art is in Rome, including several Bernini sculptures. Seeing the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel at night was a great experience. The crowds were far smaller than I have seen during the day.
Possibly the most picturesque spot on Earth. The train ride to Wengen is unbelievably beautiful.
This is the first time I have been to Neuschwanstein on a nice day. What an incredible view from Mary’s Bridge!
There is nothing quite like listening to a Mozart concert in a fortress above the city where the great composer was born. Our hotel dates for 1342!
Vienna couldn’t be more well suited to us — art, music, history. We happened to be in Vienna during the Pride festival and got to join in the festivities.
