A long weekend in Italy: the top things to do in Bologna When planning a trip to Italy, the destinations that come to mind are usually Rome, Florence and Venice. Not that I’m blaming anyone, they are all one-of-a-kind cities and must-visits. But it’s my job to illuminate you on another fantastic Italian city that seems to be completely under the radar: Bologna. Known as La Dotta (“the learned one” for its world-renowned university), La Grassa (“the fat one” for its delicious cuisine) and La Rossa (“the red one” for its red rooftops and leftist political views), Bologna is definitely a destinat ..read more

The most beautiful beaches in the Amalfi Coast The Amalfi Coast has lots of beaches and hidden coves, it’s just a matter of discovering them. Since most beaches are enclosed by rocky cliffs, lots of them have sunlight for limited hours.  This area is mostly characterised by pebbly beaches and steep crystalline waters. Getting to most of these beaches will require walking up and down a lot of stairs, but when you get to the beach and dive into the waters, the effort will have been worth it! For families that have small children, no worries, there are also some beaches that can be easily ac ..read more

Visiting the Pope’s summer residence: the Pontifical Villas and Gardens We Romans are very lucky to have so many beautiful places in such close proximity.

Visiting Palazzo Colonna: the Baroque jewel in the heart of Rome Having a place almost to myself? In Rome? As much as you may think it’s impossible, it’s actually very much possible. Many travelers come to Rome to end up cramming the most famous monuments into their trip, often leaving out stunning gems that are absolutely worth a visit. Among these are the aristocratic palazzos of Rome, owned by ancient noble families that have opened them to the public on select days of the week. One of my favorite ones is the regal Palazzo Colonna, on Via della Pilotta, where the Colonna family still reside ..read more
