Tre Settimane

We have planning a trip to Italy for months now and it's three weeks away. The scope of the trip is to travel to Rome for four days and then to Tuscany for 12 days. The latter half of the Tuscany portion will be spent with my husband's family in an 18 person villa.

Traveling to Italy with a 3.5 year old and being 6 months pregnant will be interesting. But not impossible. My attitude is to take things in stride, take it slow and not expect to see everything. Of course the whole purpose of a vacation is to relax, so I'm looking forward to the relaxing part.

Here is the list of hotels/villas we'll be staying at:

Rome- 4 days

Hotel Capo d-Africa
via Capo d'Africa 54, 00184 Rome, Italy

The reason we chose this hotel is that it is right near the Colesuem and the blurb they had about child guests:
We pamper children providing a welcome gift
upon arrival, babysitting with 24 hour
notice, child-size bathrobes, children’s
amenities, colouring books and
crayons, bedtime milk & cookies,
assistance for family oriented activities
and much more!

Tuscany- 4 days
Hotel Tenuta di Ricavo
I 53011 Castellina in Chianti
Siena - Toscana - Italy

The reason we went with this spot was, well...the pictures were amazing. And it has two pools!

Finally we'll be at this amazing villa for 7 days.

Sole del Chianti

Via Bonazza, 8
50028 Tavarnelle Val di Pesa (Firenze) Tuscany

Just look at the picture. I think it says it all.

We are excited. I was explaining to Maddox about Gelato yesterday. I don't believe he got that it is ice cream, but he will, oh he will.

More to come!
