Weekend in Italy, and a souvenir from Rome

Last weekend my husband and I went to Italy. We traveled with two other couples. We spent the first day sightseeing in Rome, and three days in a small village an hour outside of Rome called Vasanello.

I kept my eyes open for miniatures, and in Rome I found this....

We saw the Trevi fountain....

had some tasty italian gelati...
stumbled upon a Valrhona shop and bought some chocolate....
and we visited the Colusseum.
In the small village of Vasanello we went for a walk, it was such a lovely and calm place.
On the wall in a restaurant I saw this "dollhouse"-picture. It was really pretty and well-made.
We also went to a vineyard for some wine-tasting and a lovely meal.
And of course I just had to try some real italian pizza! It was delicious!
Here`s the whole group at this wonderful little hidden gem of a restaurant, it was my favorite.
(me in the grey cardigan).
And this is another village where we had dinner one evening.

All in all a fantastic trip, I enjoyed every single moment! Nice people, calm surroundings and fantastic food!
