Our Fabulous Italian Vacation

Last week we had a whirlwind week, traveling to Italy for a terrific vacation! And the best part about it was Rocco got to come along with us!

Rocco was a champ (except for a few minor tantrums on the plane) during the long trip across the pond and once he got to Italy he fit in fabulously with the other Italian dogs.

We spent most of the trip at Lake Como where there was plenty of opportunity to hike, swim and take long walks through the little towns.

We stayed in the little town of Menaggio, where there was a lovely lakefront patch. Rocco enjoyed the duck watching and even swam in after them further down the path!

We took in some amazing views from high above Lake Como.

The last two nights we spent in Milan where we got in some urban hiking!

We'll post more details about our adventures in upcoming weeks. I still need to sort through all the photos!

  1. Such pretty pictures! Rocco looks like he fits right into Italian life. Especially in the Milan picture--he looks ready to go from hiking to runway in no time ;) Can't wait to hear more about the trip!

  2. That looks like a wonderful vacation! I love the first picture, your hair is blowing in the wind! :)

  3. Glad you had a great trip. Wish we could fly in the cabin. If we could Mom would visit her friends in Germany.

  4. What an amazing trip! The pictures are beautiful! I'm glad Rocco got to go and enjoy it too :)

  5. Looks like a lovely time was had!

  6. OMG so jealous. That looks absolutely beautiful and you two fit right in. I love Italy and will spend some time there again next September in Tuscany and Orvietto. Unfortunately not sure Kilo will make the trip but maybe now I have seen these pics.

  7. Rocco, you're such a lucky jet setter!!! I would love to travel on the plane with my pups, but they'd have to be in the cargo area, and I'm going to avoid that at all cost. Unless hubby gets orders for somewhere we'll have to travel by plane, the pups won't earn their wings.
    I can imagine how much fun you must have had!!!!

  8. I am so envious! That looks like a gorgeous trip!

  9. It looks like you had a wonderful vacation...what a beautiful place!

  10. Oh my goodness, that looks so wonderful! I want to go!

  11. It looks like you had a totally fabulous vacation Rocco. I am still bummed that all my dog pals got to go on vacation with their moms except me! Love Dolly
