A 12 day trip to Italy and Slovenia in October, 2017. My husband, Harsh, and I spent the first half of the trip with friends, covering Tuscany and Cinque Terre, while the second half of the trip saw just the two of us exploring the Dolomites, a bit of Slovenia, and the cities of Venice and Rome.
The trip began with us landing at FCO where we met our friends (two couples), and we straightaway headed to Tuscany in our rental car. We'd booked a beautiful property overlooking the rolling Tuscan hills for the night. The homestay came under Italy's Agri Tourism program, and was a delight. We had endless glasses of Tuscan wine and bantered late into the night.
