    • The Pantheon (notice all the people).

    • Inside the Pantheon with a view of the oculus above us.

    • Trevi Fountain by day…

    • …and by night.

    • The Spanish steps, which were about a five minute walk from our hotel in Rome.

    • Looking down on the remains of the Roman Forum from Palatine Hill.

    • View of the Colosseum in the distance from Palatine Hill.

    • Inside the Roman Colosseum…

    • …and outside. Not pictured: hundreds of people also trying to take a picture.

    • The Swiss Guard at the Vatican

    • Inside St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican. Again, notice the crowds. The Vatican museums were definitely the most crowded places we visited.

    • Outside of St. Peter’s Basilica in St. Peter’s Square

    • An afternoon maritozzo (a Roman pastry) and espresso

    • Rome has four “signature” pasta dishes — cacio e pepe, carbonara, amatriciana, and alla gricia. We tried them all, and the amatriciana (pictured here) was our favorite.

    • We also tried lots of gelato, but this place in Rome was one of our favorites.

    • Piazza Navona with Bernini’s Fountain of the Four Rivers behind us.

    • The famous Duomo cathedral in the city center of Florence.

    • Giotto’s Bell Tower in Florence. We climbed the 414 steps to get to the top.

    • Mid-Giotto’s Tower climb…

    • The views from the top were worth the climb!

    • The Duomo cathedral at night.

    • Took a day trip around Tuscany, and our favorite stop was Siena. This is the Piazza del Campo, where Siena holds its famous Palio horse races.

    • Views from inside the Siena Cathedral

    • Tuscan countryside

    • We got to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa, but we mostly laughed at all the people taking photos with it.

    • The dome inside the Duomo in Florence.

    • Me awkwardly posing on the Ponte Vecchio in Florence.

    • Michelangelo’s famous “David” statue.

    • Florence at night from the Piazzale Michelangelo. We (and a few hundred of our closest friends) watched the sunset from here.

    • A viral coffee drink called an affogato — half ice cream and half espresso. There’s a reason it went viral.

    • View of the Grand Canal from a water bus in Venice.

    • The Rialto Bridge in Venice

    • And us on the Rialto Bridge

    • Walking the books at the Librairie Acqua Alta, the most famous bookstore in Venice.

    • Outside of Harry’s Bar — birthplace of the bellini and a frequent hangout of Ernest Hemingway.

    • Banksy’s work on one of the buildings in Venice — Migrant Child.

    • Views of the Grand Canal on our gondola ride in Venice.

    • More gondola ride views

    • St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice, covered in gold.

    • Sun rising over Venice on the morning we left.
