Actress Jessica Alba is so taken by her Italian vacation she's gone bonkers with Instagram and Twitter, posting 19 photos of her jaunt to the boot-shaped country to date.

The pics include photos of the 31-year-old's mom, Catherine, and two daughters, Honor, 4, and Haven, 11 months.

The pics include Alba taking a break from parenthood to chill seaside with her mother, the kids munching on lobster salad and the starlet enjoying a cup of morning tea.
