Once place that's always been on my 'to-visit' list is Italy (especially after reading Eat, Pray, Love and craving the most insane amount of pizza)! Well, the BF and I have decided as a little treat we're going to whisk ourselves off to just there - but where abouts to go? Have you ever been to Italy? Anywhere in particular you'd recommend? We were thinking Florence and after doing some reasearch it bloomin well looks beautiful!
Whilst searching around, we did actually come across a great deal for a 7day cruise - yup, you read that right, a cruise! No, we haven't lost our minds, and we're not old before our time (well maybe we are but that's another matter) but the cruise would take us to Rome, Naples and Florence.

Please send me any links, suggestions, advice if you've ever been to Italy and in particular Florence (unless there's another place in Italy you think is a must over there).
I love planning for holidays and will definitely be starting up a little pinterest board for my little jolly. I actually think planning for the holiday is just as good as going on one. I was recently asked to take part in a 'holidays habits poll'* that moneysupermarket.com were doing to find out the habits of the nation when it comes to holidays - from preparation to what we like to get up to whilst away. The results have been quite interesting to read to be honest although I'm not sure I agree with the overwhelming choice of beach holidays - not my ideal of the perfect holidays, I love being up and about doing something/seeing things!
