Rome is, hands down, my favorite city in the world. If you are an art buff, you may find yourself stumbling upon a Bernini sculpture gracing some little piazza that is not even on your map. If you are a history buff, you have ancient rome through the renaissance. If you love food, the cuisine is out of this world. ...

Gorgeous, historic city in the heart of Tuscany! This city was integral to the Renaissance, and it shouldn't come as a surprise that the art art and architecture are completely breathtaking.

Venice is one of the most unique cities in the world. Its network of waterways makes it a bit confusing to navigate and tourists can make it very crowded at times but a must visit all the same

Although some travellers who go the route of the Amalfi area just do a day trip here, we decided to sleep over to be able to go around the place longer, savor the ambiance and admire its beauty. Its truly magical and a photographers delight. I vow to go back and spend at least two nights.

Gayle and I took the train and stayed in Varenna (and nearby Perledo) to spend some time at Lake Como. We loved the promenade, the narrow steep streets, watching Ferries and the Lake, and taking romantic walks. It's a quiet town,with not much to do within its confines, but isn't that what vacation is all about?

For our guests, Lucca is tops on the list. Takes less than an hour & 1/2 by car to arrive, leave the car in one of many parking areas along the circumferential streets and walk into a city practically devoid of car traffic. Watch out for the bicyclers! Walk or bike the ramparts, adjourn for a plate of pasta in ...

Pompeii was much more amazing than I had expected. The ancient city itself is perfectly preserved, giving you a deep look back into the past - with painted murals, mosaics, perfectly preserved kitchens with pottery. They also have plaster casts of the people who were caught when the volcano exploded. You can see their actual looks of terror, mouths open, ...

This tiny medieval walled city is conveniently located near Florence but far enough off the beaten tourist path that it still feels unspoiled. The historic walls and towers are magnificent, and the food is incredible.

Didn't really see much of Sorrento, just the harbor mainly. I did however book a sailboat tour of Capri that departed from and arrived back in Sorrento. It turned out to be a fantastic day and a great decision. Four people I met in the hostel in Naples came down with me. We were greeted by the owner of the ...

Montepulciano is a beautiful medieval and Renaissance hill town in the Italian province of Siena in southern Tuscany. It is a major producer of food and drink. Renowned for its pork, cheese, "pici" pasta, lentils, and honey, it is known world-wide for its wine. Connoisseurs consider its Vino Nobile, which should not be confused with varietal wine merely made from ...

Vernazza which is the second village along the Cinque Terre (depending from which direction you count). It is considered by many to be the prettiest of the villages. This is due in part to its natural setting around the harbour (including the Church and the Doria Castle), the brightly coloured buildings and the cobblestoned main street. Gayle and I had ...

Some people describe Lecce as the "Florence of the South" - it has beautiful architecture and art, stupendous food, and while it has started to garner a bit more attention in recent years, it is still very much off the main tourist track.

Gayle and I spent 3 really nice days in the Cinque Terre area. We spent 1 day hiking on land and another on a boat among the 5villages plus Portovenere. Monterosso was our favorite village of the 5, although even in September, it's all a bit crowded at times.
