Mario and Luigi Take Lorenzo de Medici!

Ciao from Mario and Luigi! We just got back from the beautiful land of Italy! It is good to be flying through the skies of our homeland again, but we really miss the views from the top in Florence!

Here we are looking out over Florence!
 We had a very full month filled with lots of traveling. Our humans weren’t always thrilled about the plane rides, but we enjoyed being above the clouds (though we wish we could’ve flown ourselves!) Our first weekend there we took a bus ride through the Chianti region of Tuscany. We tried around twenty different types of wine and got to see how it was made. The next day we learned how to use the train system and took a day trip to Pisa. You could feel the lean in the tower as soon as you stepped in, and it took Elizabeth and Lacey awhile to adjust as they climbed all of those stairs! 

Chianti from Tuscany!

  Our next weekend we went to Fiesole, Cinque Terre, and Venice.
