italy {rome, island of elba, pisa}

now that i'm back from my vacation, i'm so excited to share with you all of the photos from my trip.  i'm going to split up the posts into three different ones, because i seriously have enough pictures that this whole thing could last a month.  

today i'm sharing with you guys the italian portion of my trip, which was the first leg of the trip.  we spent the first three days in rome, where i fell in love with the culture, the sites, and the food!  we saw the colosseum, the vatican, the trevi fountain, and the spanish steps.  we ate homemade pasta at a family run cafe, drank cappuccinos, and searched for the best gelato, which is how we stumbled upon a cute little organic gelato shop.  
after rome, we went to the island of elba, specifically portoferraio.  we walked around the little island town and picked up aqua de elba perfume, which i will be wearing this season as a reminder of my italian adventure.
we then went to pisa.  our tour of the landmark was cancelled, so we called to our adventurous side and took the train there ourselves!  pictures don't even do the tower justice.  it was so much more amazing then i could even imagine and it was one of my favorite parts of the entire trip.

next up.... the spanish leg of the trip!
