Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb celebrated a decade as co-hosts of NBC's Today in Italy recently.


The TV hosts are living their best lives during this anniversary tour, as reported by E News.

The photos from their Italian adventures were posted on the official social media pages of Today.

Kathie Lee and Hoda also shared some of the best pictures. The pair first visited Florence, which Hoda had never been to before.

"Couldn't ask for a better welcome from the streets of Florence!" the two ladies captioned the photo of the street art in Florence on their personal Instagram account.


Kathie Lee and Hoda also posted photos in which they both sported in white as they enjoyed the sunny spring days. One of the photos showed them walking along the river before they ride in a boat.

"On the river Arno in Florence with our crew!!!" Hoda wrote on Instagram.

They end their time in Florence drinking wine and throw in a few more rooftops hangs. Hoda posted a photo of them while looking out upon all that Italy has to offer.


"Happy 10th anniversary xx," she captioned the post.

From Florence, the gal pals went to Tuscany and also spent time with Donna Farizan, the Today's social contributor.


"I cannot believe it's been 10 (years), I honestly cannot believe it. ... Kath always said, 'Oh wait, we got the Egyptian journalist and post-menopausal has-been? How do those two things work?'" Hoda said during the fourth hour of Today, according to USA Today.

Hoda, who replaced the fired Matt Lauer as co-host of Today's first two hours in January, recalled that when she met Kathie Lee in 2008, she told her that they are "going to be lifetime friends.”

Over the course of the last decade, the TV hosts have seen each other through life's biggest events both on-air and off.
