14 Feb, 2019 in Genoa

Had less than a day to roam around Genoa, so had to prioritize visits to attractions. Of all the museums available in Genoa, I decided on Galata, the maritime and history museum of the city and region with some funky addition of visiting a submarine. The main museum has great exhibitions about sea travel and sea […]

30 Dec, 2018 in Northern Italy

After my visit to Turin northern Italy, I took a short road trip up to the northern mountains, before heading down to Genoa. I have heard it’s a nice ride, but nothing prepared me for the spectacular views of that region.  Sacra di San Michele, up high, is the perfect observation point for the mountains and […]

22 Nov, 2018 in Turin

I love specialty museums, and I love the cinema, and so there is little that can excite me as coming across a cinema specialty museum, like the one I found out about when visiting Turin. It’s one of the best museums I’ve visited in recent years, and it is so well done I wish I […]

26 Aug, 2018 in Genoa, Visions

This summer I spent some time in Europe, and after a visit to France and Denmark and before a visit to Finland, I had a few days to explore new regions of Italy I haven’t explored before. I first did Turin and the nearby mountains, and then made it down to the coastline for a […]

3 Aug, 2018 in Turin, Visions

This summer I got to spend some time in Europe, and after a visit to France and Denmark and before a visit to Finland, I had a few days to explore new regions of Italy I haven’t explored before. The chosen base was Turin, up on the north west near the mountains, and so I […]

13 Jan, 2018 in Sicily

During our tour of Sicily we did a two nights stop at a lovely homestay Agriturismo Conte Ruggero in what seemed like the middle of nowhere, but a short ride from Mount Etna. We weren’t really expecting much in terms of events that evening, but we ventured into the nearby local town and were surprised […]

30 Dec, 2017 in Sicily, Visions

Earlier this year I had the chance to join my family to a holiday trip around the gorgeous Italian island of Sicily. From Taormina, with the beaches of Cefalu and Mondello, to the gorgeous Etna active volcano mountain. Along the way, we also made several stops in interesting towns, Catania, Enna, and Monreale, with historical […]

2 Oct, 2017 in Venice

To wrap up my visit to Venice to meet my family for the holidays, I’ll just give you a photowalk around the city on my last day in Venice on my own after my family left. It’s very picturesque so almost every photo you take in whatever direction is likely to look gorgeous. Canals, colors, […]

21 Sep, 2017 in Sicily

My last day in lovely Sicily included a visit to the gorgeous Mondello, very close to Palermo. Clear waters, fluffy white sand, and mountains rising in the background, as far as crowded Mediterranean sea beaches go, this is one great beach. Was a bit crowded when we were there, but still was pleasant overall, if you […]

22 Aug, 2017 in Sicily

While roaming around Sicily with my family we made a stop to the northern town of Cefalu with a gorgeous beach stretch and a charming old town. It captures the essence of the Sicilian experience, historical forts and cathedrals, old pedestrian area with narrow streets offering a variety of restaurants and shopping options, beach chill-out […]
