The ferry ride to Capri was a long and depressing one for some of us, luckily Franco, the owner of Il Giardino dell’Arte, was waiting for us at Capri and took us to his piece of paradise on earth. We had charming rooms with our own courtyards overlooking ... Read more >

After a great night’s sleep at Portanova, we set our sights on Amalfi. With ferry timetable in hand, we said ‘ciao’ to Angelo, who god bless him, carried our luggage yet again, to the front door, and off we set. Decided against the taxi, we were experts ... Read more >

NAPLES- Quest for the Perfect Pizza

Wednesday, 30 Sep 2009 | Views [571] | Comments [1]

We were a little apprehensive about Naples, we had heard and read so many stories, and none of them shone a very positive light on the city of the perfect pizza. We really didn’t know what to expect and had stirred each other the entire way from Rome ... Read more >

With a tinge of sadness we parted our little villa in Tuscany for Roma.   To break the trip we stopped in pretty little Orvieto for lunch.   Orvieto is a pretty medieval village that sits on a volcanic tufa rock., with underground tunnels and ... Read more >

Had booked a private tour of Florence with Guiseppe Migliorini from Tuscany Tours, and had to meet him at the train station around 9:30, so needless to say it was an early start. We had set off in perfect timing but didn't get far before we had realised ... Read more >

We all slept in this morning, but Paul was determined to have his photo taken with the leaning tower, so off we set, cameras in hand. The trip over wasn't so bad, passed about 30km of these amazing tree farms just out of Pisa, which were awesome, every ... Read more >

Radda in Chianti and Siena

Monday, 21 Sep 2009 | Views [644]

Decided to have a bit of a break from driving so much today, so thought we'd check out our local. Radda is absolutely heavenly and everything you'd expect from a small village in Tuscany. Had a bit of a wander around, then found a coffee in Bar Dante, ... Read more >

Left the Lakes today, woke up to more rain, happy to leave..... ....finally saw what we have been waiting to see all week, a bus and a truck meeting head on, on that ridiculous one way road pretending to be a dual carriageway. They met on a blind corner, ... Read more >

Early start today, had to catch the ferry from Bellagio at 8:14am to Como, caught the train into Milan. Just the girls again today, things went a lot faster. Lost all sense of direction, but after some kind instructions, we got on track again. Had a quick ... Read more >

Woke to heavy rain that hit northern Italy overnight. Not one to waste time and sit around, and being the romantics that we are, we decided to take a short 2.5 hour drive over to Verona. We headed to the 'old town' and first stop was for caffeine.... Read more >
