Mt Baldo 10 wm

It’s hard not to fall in love with Lake Garda and all it has to offer.  And it’s easy to explore some of the key places by simply hopping on a ferry ride around the lake.

Pompeii1

So of course a highlight of any trip to Italy would have to be a visit to the ruins… some of the best preserved in the world. We did a tour as part of a ...

Italy – A Tuscan Treat

Fattoria San Donato 1

I’ve been in love with Tuscany for as long as I can remember. I’m not sure if I’d seen it in old movies I used to watch with Mum on a Sunday afternoon, but I always had visions of the Tuscan countryside, beautiful blue skies, the never-ending rows of vines and the old stone towers of medieval fortresses rising from ...

All Roads Lead to Rome

along-the-appian-way

“The road is all but gone, destroyed by time, neglect, and the incursions of modernity; to travel the Appian Way today is to be a seeker, and to walk in the footsteps of ghosts.” Robert Kaster – The Appian Way   Stand for minute, eyes closed, on the outskirts of Rome on the ancient paving stones that make up what was ...
