Traveling to a foreign country can be challenging, sometimes.
And if you are traveling overseas, visiting a place which is completely new to you, it could be even more stressful. Not to mention the fact that probably you are visiting a country you have been dreaming of for ages and maybe it is your only chance to go there and you want to do everything right, without missing anything.
There’ s a magical place in the Tuscan countryside.
Actually, there are quite a few, to be honest, since Tuscany is one of the most beautiful regions in Italy, but there is one that is just a bit more special. It is a place that has an incredible atmosphere, in a dreamy location that takes you back in time.
Traveling as a vegan can be difficult sometimes.
Vegan options are everywhere today but, depending on the place you find yourself in, the choice might be quite limited. If you are in a big city, I am sure you’ll have plenty of options, while if you are somewhere in the countryside – like where I live, for example – being vegan can sometimes mean having to eat a salad and little else.
If you are looking for a cool, off-the-beaten-track location for your holidays in Italy, Torino might be the perfect place for you.
If you have already been in Italy and want to see something different from the usual Venice-Florence-Rome itinerary or if is your first time in the country but want to add a lesser-known tourist destination to your itinerary, you won’t go wrong if you include Torino in your list of places to see.
As natives, there’s always a lot we can learn from foreigners who visit our country.
Sometimes, I come across people who seem to really, really love Italy – way more than I do, in some cases. Speaking with them is refreshing because for a moment I forget about all the problems my country has and just focus on the positive things. It is as if you are looking at your country with fresh eyes and you start seeing things you were not used to noticing anymore. And you fall in love with your country again.
Are you thinking of visiting Liguria? I bet everybody told you not to miss Cinque Terre.
Well, they are right. Cinque Terre, the five lands, is actually one of the most beautiful areas in my lovely region – and in Italy in general, actually – but it might not be the perfect location for a holiday in Liguria, if you plan on spending some time in the region.
Do you plan to travel to Italy in the future? Is it just a dream of yours?
It doesn’t matter. Instagram is a perfect tool to satisfy both needs. If you have been following me for a while now, you may already know that I am a super fan of Instagram. It is my favorite social media – I only betray it sometimes with Pinterest when I need to further fuel my addiction to lovely houses and amazing outdoors – and I spend a lot of time there.
Savona is undoubtedly one of the lesser known Italian cities.
Right in the heart of the Italian Riviera, the city is often neglected by tourists who focus their attention on the more attractive seaside locations. After all, most of the tourists come to the area for its beaches and pristine waters and do not even think that Savona might be an interesting place to visit.
You know how much I love Italian provincial towns, right?
If given the chance, I’ll never restrain myself from saying that the real beauty of Italy lies in these often ignored quiet little towns. And even if nobody asks my opinion about that, I’ll always find a way of saying so – you should know that already. But the thing is that I strongly believe that if you really want to know Italy, you should go and spend some time in a provincial town and I am sure that, if you do so, you’ll fall in love with my country once and for all.
