Food and wine 

As you may have understood if you’ve read my small guide up to here, Gorizia certainly is a big tourist attraction, and travellers usually forget it when planning a tour of Italy. It may not compare to incredible places like Venice or Florence, but I can still assure it’s very worth visiting if you’re looking for an alternative route in the North-East of the country!

Photography galleries and cultural centers

After years of closure, FORMA FOTO has finally opened again last year. It has the best photographers, who may not always be the most famous. When I visited Italy for Christmas there was an exhibition about Vivian Maier, street independent photographer, previously Berengo Gardin in Venice and Walter Bonatti, who is my favourite italian explorer and journalist.

Injured in Italy

It was Easter Sunday and we had a long walk to arrive at a traditional Italian Easter Sunday mass in the morning. Throughout this walk my ankle continued to swell and I continued to cough and sneeze, but being in such a culturally rich and vibrant new country was an experience that I didn’t want to take for granted, so I pushed through it. When my ankle started to go purple and it became painful to walk on it I decided that this wasn’t just a 24 hour situation, and that I should probably seek some medical help. After notifying one of our group leaders we decided to call a doctor, but I would not be able to see him until we arrived in Venice the next day.

Felicity Sleeman

THE FOOD:

We all know what Italy is famous for : Pizza and pasta . Italian Pizza is definitely different than Pizza Hut or Papa John’s . It’s thinner , with less cheese , and lesser ingredients. It wasn’t my favorite. But it’s cheap and available at almost every restaurant you find . So you can count on it as a snack . The pasta was pretty much the same pasta that we all have at restaurants all over the world . So no , it wasn’t the pizza or the pasta that I fell in love with . It was the seafood . In Venice , I had the best seafood stew ever. It was more than delicious. So you definitely have to try the seafood on your visit. One of the biggest problems that I faced during my trip , was the availability of normal water . I’d always go into stores and find only sparkling water . I don’t hate sparking water , but it just can’t replace the normal drinking water . So if you ever go into a store and find normal water , make sure to buy yourself at least a dozen of bottles and keep them in your hotel .

North Adriatic

Focusing on the mainland starting from the north, the Istrian peninsula is ready to take any travelers breath away with the vast cultural and natural treasure it holds. Heavily influenced by the Republic of Venice through history, cities like Pore? and Rovinj will give You the feel of a extravagant mediterranean holiday from the 50’s, and the city of Pula should not be neglected by anyone thirsting for Ancient Roman architecture, as it is the site of one of the world’s most preserved Roman amphitheaters and several other ancient monuments. Cruising around Istria is also rewarding for the genuine cuisine and authentic wines it offers, and if one is to venture inland, the cities of Pazin and Motovun will surely make it worth the trip. Before leaving one should also visit nature park U?ka, a part of the mountain range rising near the coast, and if You are longing for civilization, the nearby city of Rijeka should help soothe your metropolitan needs.

Venice mythbusters

Venice mythbusters In a recent article that I red on a venetian newspaper, there are a lot of bad reviews about Venice, most of those are exaggerated or, even worse, silly and misleading. In this short guide, I simply want to help you to understand that Venice can be a lovely place to go, avoiding tourists traps, overpriced places and waste of time.

Columbus, Paganini and piano-piano

Genoa is not used to anything behind her brilliant rivals on the sea and on land. Thus, she vehemently disputed with Venice the title of the lady of the seas, and in Florence – the title of the main money bag of Europe. And if Venice was called the Lightest (La Serenissima), and Florence – the Holy (La Santissima), then Genoa got no less lush nickname – Magnificent (La Superba). And for good reason: without her knowledge, for centuries, no one could have stuck in the good half of the Mediterranean, the wealth of local bankers and businessmen were legendary, and even the all-powerful Venetian doges flinched at the sound of her name.

Venice : A Sinking Beauty

Arriving in Venice In April, 20014 I went with a group of girls and teachers from high school for a two week classics and art history focused trip to Italy and Greece. After the 18 hour haul from Auckland airport, our first port of call after stepping of the plane onto Italian soil was the city world renowned for both its physical and historical beauty. The city of Venice attracts over 15 million visitors each year, offering endless activities, from lunch in the famous St Marc’s Square, to gondolier rides around some of the 177 canals the city is built amongst.

Bacari, the real Venice experience

Venice is the capital of Veneto, a region in north-east Italy, and it is also my hometown. I’m writing this article because I really feel there’s something people are really missing when visiting Venice. The romantic atmosphere, gondolas, expensive and fancy cafes and restaurants are all well-known images linked to the city, but believe me, Venice is much much more.

Three Days In Milan

A couple weeks ago my boyfriend and I visited one of the biggest fashion centres in Europe. I personally did not want to go to Milan for a long time, I thought it was too “mainstream”  and rather visited places like Venice (i know, this one is popular as well), Lido and other destinations which were not as popular for tourists.

Venice: A tiny glimpse of Murano and Burano Islands

I, as many other people thought that the only attraction in the Venetian lagoon was Venice the majestic city with its maze of canals and doing things like taking a trip in the iconic gondolas, visiting the breathtaking Saint Marks Basilica, standing or eating in piazza San Marco. But in fact, it isn’t.

Venice - The Floating Beauty

The only thing I knew about Venice before this trip, was that it was the scene of a literature book I read in high school called “The Merchant of Venice.” That, and it is filled with canals where I can take rides on the famous gondola boats, and of course, it’s romantic.

Venice: A solo trip

As everyone knows, Venice is a truly unique city enchanting its visitors with water streets, great history and culture. It’s also very romantic – tempting nocturnal strolls, providing amazing views at every corner and some quiet little streets to roam about. So, being there on my own, I was expecting to feel a little like a candle in the middle of somebody else’s dinner. Yet, it only made me fall more in love with the city itself. Obviously, I still plan on visiting Venice with my loved one someday, but this quick solo visit was very liberating and artistically fulfilling. In a way, this freed me up from the need of seeing all the main touristic attractions. Thereby, when I revisit, I’ll be able to simply relax and enjoy the city for its beautiful singularity.

Magical Venice

My first visit to Venice I spent my days just walking for hours on end in the sharp ice wind because naturally I found myself in this extraordinary city in winter! Each step I took, each turn of my head, each breath of air I inhaled I was met with a slash of bitter icy air but my eyes were not disheartened. Venice is not like any other city. A city built on water with no cars, countless footbridges and narrow paths making it easy but worth getting lost no matter how many times you visit. Just the name can invoke hordes of images – gondoliers in striped jerseys, The Rialto, The bridge of sighs, masked balls and crumbling palaces confronted with streets of water. Venice really is another world and there are few cities that give you a charmed, warming feeling like Venice does. Strolling the streets and palazzos, I felt fortunate to be witnessing a city quite like it.

The Hidden Charm of Italy - What to Do and See in Bologna

Rome is eternal, Venice is impressive, and Florence artistic, but currently they are all too touristic. However, there is an often neglected Italian city that is neither so famous nor so visited, but frank, charming, delicious and so worth seeing – Bologna. In Italy, it is known as La Dotta, La Grassa, La Rossa (the learned, the fat, the red) and after only a few hours spent in the administrative capital of the region Emilia Romana you will be falling in love with it and planning your next trip.
