There are many great wineries in the Chianti region. We took a tour of Castello Il Palagio and loved the food and wine. We took three bottles home with us!

The castle is immense. It's a long walk to go through the center of the castle and then circle back through the park.

Bled Island is a beautiful island in the middle of the glacial Lake Bled. It is best known for housing the Church of the Assumption of Mary which has been attracting pilgrims for centuries. The church is famous for the so-called Wish bell which will make your wish come true if you rang it in honor of Virgin Mary.

Neuschwanstein castle really is something out of a fairy tale - or a Wagnerian Opera.
