The last time we've been here was in 2001, and it was fun to experience this region all over again from a different viewpoint as parents.
The pool was very popular with my boys,
but we also did a lot of exploring.
We checked out Leonardo's house (da Vinci's, not di Caprio's):
We did some shopping:
I even splurged on a pair of handmade Italian shoes but wore only a pair of Crocs the whole vacation...
If you ever get the chance to visit this region, just do it!
