I'm home, and wonderfully jet lagged. Italy was... absolutely amazing. I did not want to leave. Rome was astoundingly historic; standing on some of those spots and knowing the history that took place there was something I just can't describe. I wish I'd had more time to explore Rome.

That said, as much as I enjoyed Rome, I really, really fell in love with Cortona. Founded by Etruscans in the 8th century BC, it certainly has the age that Rome has, but it's a small, peaceful, sleepy hilltop village. While what's in the storefronts may have changed, the layout and look of the city has hardly changed since the Renaissance (or so I'm led to believe, having not been there). Great little shops, some amazing restaurants, and cappuccino I will miss. I drank an ocean of cappuccino, by the way. If there are massive cappuccino shortages in the next few weeks, you know who to blame.

A few pictures are behind the cut; I'm putting together a Flickr site with a lot more, and I'll post the link to that when it's done.

A few pictures... )
