Rome

Tony Le on Jun 7th 2011

I saved the best for last because this city is full of amazing sites and wonderful food. Rome is another New York city in a sense because it is always on the go. If one were to travel to Rome be sure to safe and know where your belonging is at all time. Rome has many sites to see but if he or she does not plan out what he plans to see it is impossible to see all of Rome. Rome was the last city that we stayed in, I did not want to go home because it is a wonderful place to be at. The food is great and there is so many sites to see that I did not get to see.

Cinque terra

This small town has a beach with a seven mile trail. It is nice because the seven mile trail runs through the five towns and is along the beach. It is a nice place to just relax and forget about time.

This villa is owned by two brothers that works the vine yard and gives tours to keep the property. The villa has been in a movie before and it also host wedding partys.
