The romantic city of Venice, built on over 100 islands, is one of Italy’s must-see locations. Unfortunately, the city is sinking, and as sea levels rise, flooding is becoming more and more commonplace. Many believe that Venice will one day be entirely underwater, so we encourage you to go visit while you still have the chance!

Cinque Terre, or five towns, is the name given to the collective group of fishing villages located along the coast of the Italian Riviera. With blue waters and colorful houses, this destination should not be missed! While staying longer is definitely an option, I only had one day to work this into my itinerary, so I did my best!
After spending a week traveling through Belgium and the Netherlands, my flight back home had a 24 hour layover in Dublin. I decided to use that time to get out and explore the best of what Dublin has to offer!
Florence, or as the locals call it, Firenze, is the capital of the Toscana region, known for its food, wine, art, architecture, and beautiful landscapes. The city can seem quite overwhelming upon researching all the ”must-see” sights and it’s nearly impossible to tackle it all in a day, a week, or even a month! In the summer of 2016, I set out to Florence, alone, for the day, as part of a bigger trip to Italy and Croatia. My home base was in Milan (mainly because the flight was so cheap).
