Izmir (Ephesus), Turkey
The first of two stops in Turkey. The highlight is the ancient city of Ephesus. Anthony and Cleopatra went there on their honeymoon so it should be good.

For Rome we chose the Ultimate Rome package to make sure we saw the Colosseum as well as the Sistine Chapel. Glad we did but both visits were very brief.

We knew very little about Florence, just that it's home to the Renaissance and has lots of great art, including the statue of David..

Another place we knew very little about. Ended up being a fairly relaxed visit where we enjoyed some French culture and classic French architecture.
