As we make our way around the beautiful country of Italy, we venture north to Venice in the Veneto region. Venice is considered a city of the sea not just on the sea, and April 25th is St. Mark’s Day, which is the anniversary of the founding of Venice.
The ancient Romans sure knew how to build their empire and city, and we are so lucky to be still able to explore their history since many of the structures they built are still in the beautiful city of Rome. As we continue on the journey as we all do our part to stay at home, I wanted to share with you many of the virtual tours you can take in the capital of Italy, Rome.
For anyone who has been to Florence, Italy, you know what a beautiful city it is to explore. Whether your interests are in art and history, food and wine, or shopping, there is so much to see. We all miss traveling and for now the best place to be is in the safety of our homes, but there will come a time in the near future when the city of Florence will be open again for us to explore. Here is a little travel inspiration for you to explore Florence in the comfort of your home.
In its current state, the world we live in can feel like a scary place. Every ounce of normalcy in our day-to-day lives has been uprooted, and many of us fear to leave our own homes for essential items, let alone for travel. And while the days of social distancing and extended school closures may not be over yet, there will come a time when things will go back to normal.
There will be many things that we’ll get back in our lives, and the ability to move around freely and begin traveling again is certainly one of them. Travel can be a great way to reconnect and bring families back together after weeks of panic, uncertainty and separation.
Since we are all in a time where we are staying at home and sheltering in place, does it seem an odd time to be discussing travel? I understand why travel is not top of mind for you or anyone else right now. But with the time lots of us have on our hands, I want to spend a few minutes explaining why travel is pretty high on the list of things we might contemplate for a few moments.
Firstly, some of our best memories are of travel. The vacations we took as children with our parents, the trips we have experienced with our own families and friends.
Extraordinary trips for exceptional travelers, where the details make all the difference
