Leaving Venice was bitter sweet. It’s such a beautiful place with room for more exploration. But it was time to continue the adventure and head to the coast.
We boarded a fast train to Florence, transferred to a regional train, and spent another couple of hours heading to La Spezia. It may have been a 5 hour plus transit day, but I love taking the trains through Europe. As we zipped through the Tuscan countryside and sped past the mountainous Parco alpi Apuane, it dawned on me that two weeks in Italy wouldn’t be nearly enough to uncover even a fraction of its many jewels.
