Five reasons Rimini is the perfect Emilia-Romagna hub

The Emilia-Romagna region in Northern Italy stretches from the tips of the Alpine mountains all the way to the micro state of San Marino. Rich in its renaissance architecture, each city has its own splendours that deserve to be discovered. Just over two years ago, I spent six says wandering such sites. In that short…

Three off beat tourist attractions in Milan

Milan, Italy’s northern metropolis, is a global powerhouse of fashion, food, desgin, architecture and finance. Every year, millions of tourists flock into the city to climb the winding steps of duomo di Milano, to take in the light pastels of Leonardo da  Vinci’s last supper and dine out in the trendy waterworks of the Navigli….

Holiday at home – tomato and garlic bruschetta

I don’t know about you, but while I’m in coronavirus lockdown I am armchair travelling like there is no tomorrow. But lapping up travel content and hypothetical trips isn’t satisfying my travel bug. So instead of wallowing, I’ve decided to channel my travel woes into the kitchen and bring the holidays to me! Whenever I…

Rome Day Three

Day Three   Day three is what I like to call ‘leftover day.’ After, doing the Colosseum and the Vatican for the first two days, day three gave me time to look at some other bits Rome had to offer. Today, from the Duke Hotel I decided to walk into the city as the national…

Rome Day Two

Day Two   It is a well known fact that City breaks are notoriously tiresome holidays, essentially because you’re packing so much culture, history, sightseeing and experiences into such a short period of time.

A few thoughts on ~ Pompeii

Ciao Ragazzi! Pompeii. Every time I hear that word, I think of a line from the BBC television series Doctor Who ‘We’re in Pompeii and it’s volcano day.’ Honestly, I hear David Tennant’s voice and everything too. But, anyway back to the place itself. Before our first trip to Amalfi  we were warned about the little…

Nightmare in Naples

Ciao Ragazzi! Normally, I have nothing but complimentary travel posts, this one is a bit different! If you have a different opinion to me then feel free to comment and persuade me otherwise! See Naples and die. A phrase stuck in many travellers’ minds, including my own. This phrase originated in the 16th century and…

Blogmas has begun…..Lecce!

Ciao Raggazzi! I realise that I am a day late starting Blogmas, but I am starting none the less. The reason I did not start yesterday was because I went to the cinema to finally see Mockingjay part II and it did not disappoint. It was action packed from the beginning to the end, but…

Capri

Ciao Ragazzi! The Amalfi coast boasts spectacular views of Mt.Vesuvius from any and every angle. And, whilst you get used to seeing this huge volcano on your doorstep day in day out, nothing at all will prepare you for Capri. Capri is probably the most well known island in the bay of Naples. And is…
