Next stop: Cinque Terre, Italy. Cinque Terre is a gorgeous range of five seaside cities. It takes about an hour and a half to hike through all five cities, or you can take the train. Fair warning if traveling in the off season: The trails will most likely be closed. Hint: Don't skip out on Corniglia, although it's a hike up about 400 steps, the views from the city are well worth it. Also, make sure to stop in either Manarola or Vernazza for a meal. Cinque Terre is known for pesto, schiachettra and the fresh, impeccable seafood.

Florence: you'll need at least two days to enjoy the beauty of Florence. Between visiting all there is to see, and the amazing cuisine the city has to offer, there's more than enough to do. Be sure to visit Piazza Michelangelo for the best panoramic views of the city, as well as Ponte Vecchio. If the weathers nice, amble about Piazza della Signoria, or make your way to the Boboli gardens for a picnic. Hint: Visit Antico Vinaio for the best, cheap and fast sandwiches in town. You receive a fresh made foccacia sandwich with all the gourmet toppings your heart desires. Make your way farther down the street, and you'll find Gelateria Del Neri, easily the best gelato I've encountered.

Our final adventure was Roma. Now, unlike Florence, Rome is quite spread out, so the best way to see everything is to split up your time between each area of the city. Of course, Rome being a mostly tourist city has many sights to offer. You don't want to miss watching the sunset from above Piazza Popolo, at Villa Borghese, it offers amazing views of the whole city. Secret: Walk up to Piazza dei Cavalieri di Malta and look through the keyhole in the priorato's main door. You'll have a perfect view of St. Peter's Basilica.
