I decided to take Northern Italy Including Cinque Terre with Trafalgar tour with my daughter because I have always wanted to visit northern Italy. I chose to travel with Trafalgar because I have traveled with them before and they offer an absolutely exceptional value for the price of their tours, and this trip was no different. My daughter and I could not have asked for a better place to begin our trip than the beautiful city of Milan.
Italians have certainly mastered the art of living- family values, spectacular food and a good dose of summer sun. When vacationing in Italy, travelers expect to be surrounded by historical cities, picturesque mountains and endless attractions and Italy does not disappoint. There are 20 different regions in Italy, and each specializes in something different to see and experience. If you’ve never been to Italy or you’re planning on exploring a new region, here are a few things you can expect on an Italy vacation.
My journey began as I met my daughter in London and flew into Milan for 2 nights before the tour started. We flew into the small airport in Milan, Linate, and took a short, relatively inexpensive taxi ride to our hotel, the Chateau Monfort – 5 star hotel, centrally located in Milan and within easy walking distance from the Duomo, Milan’s grand Cathedral.
