How to spend a day in Florence

If you ever take a trip to Northern Italy and stay in one of the major cities, you may be surprised to find out how easy it is to do a little city-hopping via train. While on a recent trip to Verona, my boyfriend and I decided to take a day trip to the city […]

Where to eat in Verona

Like any Italian city, Verona is full of eateries with plentiful options available at most of them, so you’ll have a whole host of possibilities to explore. Whether you’re searching for the traditional dishes in Verona such as Gnocchi, Bigoli, Polenta or Pastissada de caval (horsemeat stew if you’re not sure of that translation), you’ll […]

Top things to do in Venice

A beautifully romantic and incredibly famous city in Northern Italy, Venice is regarded by most as a place that they ‘have’ to visit at least once in their lives. I’ve visited just once before for a short day trip, so I was very excited to return and see much more of the city. With its […]

My Italian Bucket List

Travelling To Italy Part 3: Florence

Well I didn’t know this but apparently Florence is the second most visited city in Northern Italy. I guess it probably has something to do with all the incredible artwork featured in the city and all the amazing culture that it is home to. Especially the statues in the streets and the paintwork in the […]

Travelling to Italy Part 2: the Dolomites

Here I have to admit, I’m really bad at geography. Like embarrassingly bad to the point where people end up looking at me like I’m crazy sometimes. So I’d never even heard of the Dolomites mountains before I went to Italy and was told about them by one of our guides. But the way that […]
