Itinerary Overview

For my 15th birthday my parents planned a big trip around Europe, one of the countries we visited was Italy, definitely my favorite European country, the landscape is beautiful, persons are so kind and the vibe of each city is awesome! Our first stop was Rome, we stayed at a hotel really near from the “fontana di trevi” which is a famous fountain really beautiful, the name of the hotel was “Boutique hotel trevi” I totally recommended because of the location but also it was very welcoming, we stayed at Rome 3 days and the last day we rented a car for going to Florence, basically we just rented for moving from one city to another, we didn’t used it in the center of the cities because parking can be expensive and it’s not necessary, you can go walking to every spot! From Rome to Florence it was around 3 hours. There we stayed at “Hotel Berna” it was good but not so close to the cathedral we had to walk around 15 minutes. After Florence we went to Venice, a dream come true! The trip was around 4 hours, even though we stopped at Verona for 2 hours. Verona is a small city and it is completely worth visiting because is where Romeo and Juliet took place, you can visit Juliet´s house. Finally when we got to Venice we stayed just for one day, but we didn’t stay properly in the city, because for getting there you must take a water taxi and it can be complicated with the bags. That’s why we stayed at Mestre a little town near Venice, the hotel was called “Hotel vidale” we don’t recommended a 100% as it’s not so nice, but for one night it’s okay, probably it would be better to stay in Venice but have in mind the water taxi.
