We’re not really sure how our trip to Italy was already two months ago (what?!), but to say we miss our time there would be an understatement. At least we left with hundreds of photos, a ton of memories, and some new good friends.  We only had a few days in Italy, but we think it was our favorite place we visited.  There’s no denying France and Spain were incredibly beautiful and captivating, but there was something about Italy that completely made our hearts melt.

Actually getting to Portofino could be considered a bit tricky, but thankfully the Princess Cruises team had everything mapped out for us, which made it super simple and stress free. Our ship docked in Genoa, and then we took a bus to Santa Margherita, where we boarded a motorboat to beautiful Portofino.  The short boat ride there was a treat in itself and once we arrived we instantly felt as though we had stepped onto a movie set. The buildings were incredibly colorful nestled right on the crystal clear water, with yachts and sailboats coming in and out of port. We spent the day roaming around the cobblestone streets with Olivia and Blake, who were really just the sweetest people ever!! This has to be one of our favorite things about traveling — meeting new, kind, and inspiring people. (Thanks for the group shot, by the way! 😉 ) We can’t wait to visit Texas one of these days and spend some time with them! We filled our bellies with an insane amount of pizza and gelato at Da I Gemelli, watching the boats go by, and sharing stories about our families back home.  It’s was a cute little restaurant conveniently located right where the boats docked.  We couldn’t help but feel like we were living in a postcard.

  1. Wow! Your travel photos make me want to drop everything and go to Italy! I just got back from a bunch of short summer trips, but I still have the travel bug. 🙂
