No I am not talking about World Cup Football, I am talking about my next trip to Italy. In 2014 I am entitled to my next Sabbatical from work. I will have been with the company for 15 years. Where am I going? Italy of course. Yes I know 2014 is a couple of years away, but a girl has to dream. It is going to be a special vacation as my daughter and her boyfriend are accompanying us. We will be celebrating her 30th birthday.
I already have my itinerary planned.
Fly into Rome of course. Where to stay? Marriott Hotel Grand Flora, that bit is easy!
We stayed in this beautiful hotel whilst in Rome in 2010. It was enchanting and the staff were both friendly and entertaining. I won’t even look anywhere else.
After four days in Rome where next? Lake Garda! In 1993 we had a family Vacation in Lido De Jesolo. We took a trip from there to Lake Garda and my husband continues to talk about it, so we will spend four days in Rome before renting a car and driving to Lake Garda for a few days. From there we can visit Verona, Milan, Venice, Murano and Burano. Lovely!

Following Lake Garda, a drive south to Tuscany. I like the look of the hotel below.
From here we can explore the Tuscan countryside before returning to Roma for the last couple of nights.
Sounds like a dream right? It is a dream that is going to come true, I will make sure of it.
I may have to wait until the FIFA World Cup is over as it is being held in Brazil in 2014 and will be much easier to watch from my home in Colorado, but once it’s done…..Italy here we come.
