From San Gimignano to the Vatican City

My feet officially hate me...
Yeah.. Ouch is right. But with all the walking we've been doing around Italy, we've also got to see some amazing views that are worth a few swollen ankles and blistering heels.
Here are a few videos from some of our favourite Italian sites...
San Gimignano: The Farm
Remember how I told you we could see San Gimignano's main city off in the distance during lunch? Look for a small bunch of tall buildings. There are currently 14 of these towers still erected... Think it's a lot? You should have been there when there were 72 of them. The point of all these towers? To allow the snobs to showcase how rich they really were. Silly, right? But it made for an awesome view.
Cinque Terre: The Hike
This was the view after climbing 460 steps uphill. Little did we know, that was the pre-lunch warm up. We then climbed all the way up the mountains you see here...
Vatican City: Saint Peter's Cathedral
If you're thinking of Death Cab's hit, you've got my taste in music Despite those lyrics, the inside was just as beautiful as the view from the very top.
More to come soon! We've got The Coliseum on today's to-do list!
