This weekend yet Wednesday, I wish it was already next Wednesday. The Husband and I are taking a nonstop flight from Tampa to Zurich on Edelweiss Air then taking the train in to Italy!

We’ll be gone for almost three weeks and plan on taking the train to Venice, San Gimignano, Naples, Amalfi, Rome, Florence, Portfino, and Lake Como.

One of the stops that I’m most excited about is staying at Il Guardastelle, an agriturismo in Tuscany.

Our final leg of the trip is taking the scenic Bernini Express through the Alps back to Zurich. I must admit, I’m a little nervous about being on a train up in the mountains but I’m hoping the beauty of the mountains will help me forget my fear of heights (and maybe a little Xanax).

Do you have any recommendations for my first trip to Italy? Have you taken these trains and have some advice for my trip? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. I have not been fortunate enough to take a trip to Italy. Very excited to hear how it goes for you! I would love to add your story to my blog/fb page. My dream is to travel to Tuscany and perhaps babysit a house there for a few months.

    1. Hello from Italy! We are having an absolutely amazing time and you must go to Tuscany! Stay tuned for lots of blog posts about Italy!
