If you were to ask someone what the most romantic city in the world is, you’re probably going to get one of two answers. Most people, perhaps, will say Paris, though I’m sure many of these people haven’t actually been on a romantic holiday in Paris. Others will tell you that it’s the Italian city of Venice. (You might get someone try to claim it’s New York City. Don’t pay attention to them. Just walk away.) Venice is often spoken about in the context of the artistic masterpieces you can find there. But Venice itself is a sort of artistic masterpiece. Let me conjure up some images for you. Unique, winding alleyways. Extraordinary art museums and palaces. Calm and clean canals. There’s no doubt that Venice is a beautiful city, and a very romantic one, too. Is it better than Paris? For my money, yes. So what can you do in Venice? Here are some suggestions that will make you trip to this great city absolutely unforgettable. Go on a gondola ride What, you were …
Back in March when I was travelling to Portugal, Easyjet suggested I reschedule my flight from Milan to Lisbon as I had about an hour at the airport and they thought I wouldn’t make it even with my carry on. Just to be safe, I picked another flight that was scheduled for the next day and then ended up having a layover at Milan Malpensa. I looked at the airport hotels and via booking.com and booked 1 night at Moxy which was right outside the airport across the street. This little boutique hotel is super fun and hip. Every night they have a special thing going on at the reception bar. During the evening I was there, they had Tonight you are the Barman night, so you could make your own drinks. The very first thing you will notice as you step inside Moxy is the smell. The smell is amazing! The revolving door must have a motion sensor that mists out the scent as you step inside. If you do decide to stay up a little later to socialize in the lobby, …
Half a year has already gone by, how crazy is that? I visited some new countries and cities this year & so far my Travel Adventures have been awesome! At the moment I have no new travel plans set just yet, as I am now in a money making mode. I will definitely take one or two small trips before the end of the year, then one in January for my birthday again as well as April and then Stockholm in July 2016 for TBEX Europe. The next new cities I plan to visit are: Amsterdam, Paris, Venice, Lisbon & Stockholm. Let’s get to the list of Favorites for 2015 – Highlight the photo for further information I am not including Cyprus on the list because I am making a separate Best Of Cyprus Post.
For easier navigation, I created separate pages above for countries I’ve visited this year so far. I am still in the process of creating many posts for Spain and some on Italy and Portugal too. In Italy I visited The Vatican City and Rome. In Portugal I visited Porto, Matosinhos and Braga. In Spain I visited Barcelona, Lloret de Mar, Platja d’Aro and Empuriabrava. Bellow the photos are the links to the new pages. Just click on the titles and they will take you to each page. 🙂 In Love with Italy P is for Portugal Spring in Spain
I visited the Vatican City on my birthday, January 14th. The best part about travelling in low season is that there are no long lines to get inside and this is amazing 🙂 Here are some photos from the Vatican City and stunning St. Peter’s Basilica. Vatican City should definitely be on your list when visiting Rome.
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Early Bird.”
During my layover in Milan, I stayed at the Moxy hotel at the Milan Malpensa airport located in Terminal 2. I loved this little boutique hotel and I recommend it to anyone that is having a short layover in Milan. Soon I will be posting more photos and a short review so stay tuned for more. 🙂
I loved this area so much because everything is in one place so you can really see a lot very quickly. We used a bus to get to Piazza Venezia and started from there, walked along the Roman Forum and finally walked over to the Colosseum. You can see all these sights during one afternoon, but I suggest you spend an entire day exploring this area. Start your day with a breakfast, and then head over here with the metro or a bus and enjoy some sightseeing, take some photos, have lunch nearby and explore some more. We did not have time to explore the surrounding areas here because of our tight schedule.
If you love Italy and it’s beautiful landscape and you are a big foodie like me, then you will most likely enjoy this movie that captures some amazing beautiful landscape of this gorgeous country. The movie itself is ehh not so great in my opinion but I watched it last night for Italy and for the Italian food. If you do end up watching it, make sure you eat something before you start the movie, because it will sure make you hungry! Filming Locations: Liguria, Tuscany, Rome, Amalfi and Capri
