She delivers various sweets and candy to good children on Epiphany Eve. But if you were bad – watch out… you may wake up to a lump of coal. Sound familiar? I can assure you she does not say, “Ho, ho, ho” or has any association with reindeer – just an ordinary broom.

It is decorated with sculptures by JB Boudard […] The post Ducale Palace and Park, Parma appeared first on Our Italian Journey ..read more

It can be an adventure. It has great coffee, amazing sandwiches, snacks, candy, and souvenirs.

The Beach Town of Rimini Rimini is a small coastal town on the Adriatic coast, in Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region. It’s known for its beachside nightclubs, fantastic seafood, and very shallow waters. The waves just simply roll gently to shore. We even found a cute swing in the water! This town must be swamped in the summer. When we visited later in the year, it was pretty much deserted. For over 150 years, Rimini has been […] The post Rimini, Italy: Beautiful Beachtown appeared first on Our Italian Journey ..read more
