The Splendors of Italy – Part I

My family and I recently completed a trip to Italy with the Cosmos tour company which took us on a journey stretching from Rome to Venice, with many fascinating stops in between, including places like Florence, Pisa, Siena and several others, before completing the return trip to Rome where we tacked on an extra day beyond the scheduled tour.┬áIn total, we were gone for 11 days, with two of those days being very long travel days between Texas and Italy. The name of the tour was “The Splendors of Italy,” which seemed appropriate enough, so I’ve borrowed the title to use for this blog post.
