Things to do in italy (11)

Puglia, the “heel” of the boot, has become increasingly popular in these last few years. And the reasons are many: its enchanting beaches, its “whiter than white” villages, its vastness, as compared to the hilly landscapes of Tuscany and Umbria, and the simplicity and openness of its people. Travellers who come to Puglia are not looking for glitz, they want to feel good and experience something they wouldn't find anywhere else. And, unlike other popular destinations like Capri, which is open only six months a year, here the villages are always alive.

Venice is a city that excites and amazes, radiates vital energy and fills you with nostalgia when you leave.

During my university years, I had the good fortune to study in Venice, get to know it, explore it and get in touch with its most genuine and authentic part.

Venice, the city on the water, is famous worldwide for its history and undisputed beauty, but especially for the Carnival, one of the most famous in the world.

Venice is much more; it is a magical city, a unique and iconic place, an open-air museum that can fascinate anyone who visits it, a city to explore but, above all, to experience.

I am in love with Tuscany: a perfect combination of landscapes, art, culture. I really am, also because "il mi nonno”, my grandfather, originally came from Serravalle, in the province of Arezzo. But there’s another reason why I love it so much: its CUISINE.

MY PRIVATE ITALY: In Rome, eat like a Roman

Written by

When you are in Italy, eat like a local.

Yes, because if you do not know Italian cuisine you might think you are eating a typical Amatriciana in Florence, or enjoying a typical Mortadella in Venice. The fact is that Italian cuisine is not a national but a regional cuisine, and each region has its own specialties: if you find the same dishes in another region, many times the "national" version is far from the original, “local” one. So, it's time to venture into a world of typical restaurants where you will not find Italians but Romans, Venetians, Florentines, Neapolitans.

There is always a chance to taste Parmigiano Reggiano when we are on a tour, in every part of the country. Yes, because Parmigiano Reggiano is somehow the “national” cheese.

To me, as well as to many Italians who love Siena and often pay a visit to the city, the Palio is a combination of colors, sounds and emotions.

The colors, from yellow ocher turf lying on the Piazza del Campo to those of the flags and the handkerchiefs of the “contradaioli”.
