Hidden spots in and around Bari

Hidden spots in and around Bari

The first thing I bumped into after arriving in the old city of Bari was the famous area with ladies making orecchiette pasta (the traditional pasta shape in this region; each Italian region has its specific pasta shape) right on the street. It was fascinating and beautiful. I […]

White towns that steal your heart: Ostuni

White towns that steal your heart: Ostuni

Here’s the thing: you can easily win my heart with a full plate of delicious food. And Ostuni did just that! Add the amazing white streets as the cherry on top and you have the perfect recipe of getting me hooked and in love forever. So […]

Trulli-Lulli in Alberobello

Trulli-Lulli in Alberobello

The road from Polignano to Alberobello winds through endless olive groves with red soil. The half an hour journey by car is amazing in itself – but drive safely! The road is not very circulated, which translates into the occasional loco speeding mindlessly and cutting the curb. […]

La dolce vita in Polignano

La dolce vita in Polignano

Back in September I had the chance to turn my work into something really fun, which includes traveling in amazing places and shooting with friends. My dear Mishuella & her husband put their trust in me to shoot their after wedding photos and for this we travelled […]

Camping in Europe for beginners: how to

Camping in Europe for beginners: how to

The story. How it all began. I’ve always had this bohemian dream of spending my summer in a tent on a beach. Despite all the people telling me how more of a nightmare than a dream it is, I didn’t care. The simple thought of […]

Vicenza. Waiting for Rotonda’s gates to open

Vicenza. Waiting for Rotonda’s gates to open

I insisted stopping for just a tiny little bit in Vicenza to visit Palladio’s Rotonda. Villa Rotonda (or Villa Capra) is a perfectly symmetrical Renaissance villa from the 16th century and it’s probably Palladio’s most famous architectural work (even though he didn’t live to see it […]

Best way to experience Cinque Terre: from the sea

Best way to experience Cinque Terre: from the sea

The Five Lands. Where should I begin? We dedicated one whole day to these colorful amazing villages tucked between steep hills and abruptly ending in the sea. Also, we booked in advance a boat trip with Daniele, which turned out to be probably the best three […]

Levanto: the starting point to visit Cinque Terre

Levanto: the starting point to visit Cinque Terre

We found a single spot available in a camping, but we had to place our tent about 5 minutes walking away from the parking area. I was tired, hungry, dirty and the thought of having to leave the car with all my stuff far away […]

Breathtaking sunset over Cinque Terre

Breathtaking sunset over Cinque Terre

We arrived in La Spezia late in the afternoon and had to arrive in Levanto as early as possible in the evening to find camping, and still we didn’t want to leave this town without taking the winding road up the hills, a couple of hours […]

Rushing around the leaning tower of Pisa

Rushing around the leaning tower of Pisa

I’m going to be honest with you: the famous leaning tower of Pisa was quite a disappointment. We spent a very short time in this city, only a couple of hours, and half of it was wasted while giving turns around the old center in the […]

Away from San Gimigniano and into Chianni

Away from San Gimigniano and into Chianni

After all the rain and storms, we finally woke up to a sunny morning, dived in a refreshing pool (best camping ever!), had coffee and proceeded on our way. The scenery transformed amazingly: the green orchards burdened with heavy grapes were glowing beautifully in the […]

The alluring Tuscany and the fascinating Siena

The alluring Tuscany and the fascinating Siena

From Firenze we took the curvy road to Siena along the tiny local villages and their endless vineyards, covering hills as far as the eyes could see.  It was cloudy, splashing raindrops now and then, yet we couldn’t stop making pit stops every 2-3 minutes, just […]
