Why Italian, you may ask.
Back in the dark mists of time, when I was at high school, I studied Art History. The Italian Renaissance was one of the units and my love of art and Italy - particularly Florence - was born. I would love to visit Italy and with the kids approaching the age of independence, hubby and I are starting to dream of new and exciting adventures.
In Florence we will visit the Uffizi Gallery where many famous Renaissance paintings can be found:
|Botticelli's The Birth of Venus (detail)|
|The battle of San Marino (detail) by Paolo Uccello|
One of the other must see sights in Florence is Michelangelo's magnificent statue of David.
We also want to see the Tuscan countryside. Vineyards, rolling hills, and cyprus trees interspersed with Medieval villages.
|The ancient town of Siena|
I also have a dream of spending a Christmas in Vienna - but that's another story altogether!
Where in the world would you like to visit and why?
