ITALY U.S.A Dream Vacation To Italia
By:Christian Pumpelly My journey to Italy is sure to be fun
but like any journey YOU have to PLAN it Would you plan your trip in the blistering cold tundra of northern Canada? :( That is why I am going to Italy in the Spring :) The weather will be beautiful with the flowers all perked up I will be flying on a Boeing
747 airplane(they have panels for movies on the back the seats) June 7, 2013 at 6:05 AM is my flight time and it will cost me $1750 for a round trip(without buying anything there And here is my map, starting from
Denver, Colorado Denver, Colorado
to... My hotel is the
Benito Elcavienti located
in Florence It is the best hotel around

4 hours and it will cost me $85.50 Then in that same day I will go for a drive all the way to the Forum and this will cost me $60 On the second day I will go to the Spanish steps and go on a tremendous tour through Rome The streets there are very narrow and made of cobblestone Day 2 Then I will grab a cup of coffee
and visit a wonderful fountain where I can see the beautiful sculpturres All of this plus the taxi will cost about $50 Day 3 Today I will travel for 45 minutes to Vatican City I will visit the museum outside
and go inside the cathedral The cathedral is still in use by
monks an bishops and of course the Pope This will be a wonderful
experience The inside is even more magnificent than the outside Day 4 After a 2 hour train ride going 210 mph I will arrive in Florence This is where Italy's farming is We will stay in one of
