        thanks for sharing those photos! Capri looks gorgeous! All of it looks amazing! is it possible to travel all over italy in 2 weeks? I want to go to SEE italy but i also want to spend some time on the beaches.
        that is amazing that you lived there, did you study abroad?

          yes i studied abroad there. its possible to travel for 2 weeks, but i wouldnt say all over. i recommend 3 days per city at least, or else you will be so burned out. i spent 4 days in capri, and honestly i wish i would have spent 5. it was so beautiful, i wouldve liked to explore the island a bit more and rent scooters but there wasnt enough time. i went to venice twice because a 3 day weekend was not long enough for me. venice is one of my favorite cities in the world because of the history and culture so i wanted to spend more time there. i spent a total of 6 days in venice, and i still feel theres more i couldve seen - i didnt even go to murano or burano, which i regret. honestly, if you are going to spend all that money to go to italy, 2 weeks is barely enough, and you should focus on 2-3 cities and thats it. any more than that and you are going to miss out on a lot.

          it definitely is rainy and cold in october and november. not the best time to visit italy. depending where you are, the amount of rain can be more or less.
