We have been to Naples a few times and we’ve always loved this city. Its got great places to stay, great food and drink, great trips out of the city and a history that is captivating and keeps you wanting more.
We love Italy, I need to say that again We really love Italy! We try to get back here at least once a year exploring a different region each time although we do seem to end up in Naples quite a lot. No surprise, as this is one of our favourite cities. There’s so much history hidden beneath and built into the streets and the food, we can’t forget the amazing foodie treats.
Rome also seems to be a city we can’t resist and another must see destination. With it’s world famous sites and a really distinct food culture its a city you cant miss. Speaking of food, no trip to Italy can be called complete without a trip to Bologna. So many of Italy’s most famous food exports come from this small town and the surrounding area.
Another must visit area of Italy we cover in our post is Venice and it’s surrounding islands and resorts some of which in our opinion are a better visit than the main city itself, although having said that you really can’t miss it out as it has some amazing places to see. Our guide to the beautiful islands of the Venetian lagoon is a good place to start.
You can’t really say you’ve done Italy without visiting the north of the country Riva Del Garda is a good place to start with plenty to do in and around the town Including some great hikes and walks with a little introduction to Via Ferrata for us which we really enjoyed.
Other places we have explored include a wonderful few days exploring Calabria and again a fabulous few days exploring the five villages better know as the Cinque Terre. If you looking for our Sicily posts please follow the link.
We had a list of things we wanted to do and try in Bologna and 99% of them were food related. Bologna is a foodies paradise. Some of the most recognisable Italian food items come from this region and we planned to taste them all.
Palermo is on the North Western tip of Sicily nestled in the Bay of Palermo in the Tyrrhenian Sea and is the capital of the island of Sicily.
If you are looking for a traditional Italian holiday hotel then look no further than Villagio Albergo da Ciccio sul Mare It really is a true Italian experience.
We had planned this weekend in Rome to attend the Six Nations Rugby tournament between Italy and Scotland and of course being in Rome and having a full weekend to play with we planned so much more.
In this post we travel eastwards to the fantastic region that has Venice at its heart and we’ll be offering bite sized travel guides on how to get to Venice and the surrounding islands of Murano, Burano, Torcello, an agritourismo visit and one of the best campsites in the area.
Vico Equense is part of the greater Bay of Naples metropolitan area and is a tourist destination. Located on a high cliff, it is down the coast from the city of Naples and the views over to Vesuvius across the Bay of Naples were beautiful.
Ragusa is one of the most picturesque towns in Sicily. the view from the upper town over Ragusa Ibla on its own separate hill top is quite breathtaking.
