I Suoni Delle Dolomiti

During the first week-end of August, I had the fantastic opportunity to visit my boyfriend in Italy and travel up to the dark green mountains known as the Dolomites. It was such a beautifully serene area, famous for its apple orchards which aligned the mountain sides. We found a little spot to camp for the…

I visited Siena at the end of March when the sun was shining high, which was great because there are plenty of gelaterias to choose from before deciding to go and sit in the huge piazza that faces the tower (costs 7€ to walk up). Italian’s were sat all around basking in the sun and…

CINQUE TERRE

This week-end I got the wonderful opportunity to go to Cinque Terre in Liguria. It was a mind-blowing experience as the views you get to see are unbelievably beautiful. I started off in the village of Monterosso, which is the furthest north of the five villages. I chose to walk from village to village, which…

I spent my Easter week-end in sunny Florence, staying in an apartment south of the river in the less touristic area. It’s a moderate sized city pouring in wealth, visible from the rows of boutiques to the squares decorated with stunning marble sculptured statues. It was a breath-taking visit filled with a sense of privilege…

Last week-end I went to Rome for a day and a half to see the Six Nations Rugby match so I did not have a lot of time to see Rome. However, I got the chance to visit the Galleria Borghese, situated in the Villa Borghese north of the city. This museum holds some of…

Eating out in B O L O G N A

Here is my final post on the best places to go to in Bologna. Here’s a few restaurants that offer different types of dishes within a reasonable price range, either regional or from other parts of Italy. These restaurants are all really lively as you would expect in an Italian restaurant and welcoming to foodies…

Bars in B O L O G N A

Bologna has a lively nightlife with some great bars that are definitely worth visiting. There is a range of bars to choose from that will tickle everyone’s fancy. The price list of alcoholic beverages doesn’t tend to vary in Bologna, so you should be expecting to pay 4-5€ for a beer, 5-7€ for wine and…

Coffee in B O L O G N A

I lived in Bologna for five months and only posted about it once, shamefully! But now I have time and a big enough knowledge of where to go to so my following posts will be on which cafes, restaurants and clubs to go to whilst visiting Bologna. It has such a great amount of choice…

French Christmas Market in B O L O G N A

When I found out that there was a French Market on in Bologna, I was jumping with glee inside because I really have missed French food a lot lately! I was in my element, as you can imagine. I’ve been dreaming about baguettes and pate for the last few weeks now so I could not…

EuroChocolate P E R U G I A

I went to the beautiful city of Perugia last week-end for the Eurochocolate Festival, and stumbled across this cheeky chocolate!

Down the Streets of B O L O G N A

Here are a few photos of Bologna in the Autumn sunshine! Via Marchesana is known for its fresh produce; fish, fruit & veg and a vast selection of meat. There are also lots of nice cafes dotted around this area. Piazza dell’8 Agosto is the square where you can find the market on Friday and…

V E N I C E in black&white

My second post on Venice; I returned sooner than expected. How glad I was to visit this mesmerising city again! A couple of friends and I were fortunate enough to be shown round by a dear friend of mine, so I got to see quiet magical squares, that not many tourists frequent. After a long…

I went to San Remo for a beach escape this Summer, and I have only just found the time to write about it! It’s a charming town with some quiet relaxing private beaches ( around 5€ pp) and a handful of seafood restaurants; I was in my element. On top of that, the prices are…

B O L O G N A

I thought I’d share a few pictures of the beautiful architecture that makes Bologna so special and stunning! This is one of the many posts to come on this amazing city that is full of so much life and vibrance, as I will be living here for another four months. Enjoy!  

V E R O N A

I’m living in Bologna at the moment so I thought I’d pop over to Verona to take a gander and see what this little city has to offer. It is a really quaint Italian city that reminds me of San Remo (with a river instead of a beach). I went there without knowing anything about…

V E R B A N I A

Just over the border from Switzerland lies this little charming town on Lake Maggiore called Verbania. It is a really sweet place with gelaterie (ice-cream shops) that sell beautifully flower-shaped ice-creams in a variety of flavours and a couple of lakeside beaches.

Nightlife in the Navigli district-MILAN

ENG- Navigli is the district known for its relaxed and young hangouts in Milan, consisting of an excellent choice of different restaurants and bars serving deliciously exotic cocktails and platefuls of yummy Italian food! The restaurants in this district serve Happy Hour around 18.00 until 23.00, which means you get an unlimited amount of food…
