Things To Do In Murano, Venice

When I found myself in Venice for two days I couldn’t help but look for things to do in Murano. After spending our first day roaming around the city, getting lost in the labyrinth of walkways, I wanted day two to be a little bit different. To be a day of venturing further afield. Which […]

Walking Around Venice

After hopping on the train from Rome, it wasn’t long before we found ourselves walking around Venice. But before we get to that part, let’s rewind a little. After spending four days in Rome taking in as many sights and flavours as we could manage, we packed up our suitcase and made our way to […]

Visiting St Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City

Visiting St Peter’s Basilica was something I almost didn’t do. After spending the morning exploring the Vatican Museums I very much had information fatigue and wasn’t sure I could take any more in. But it was our last full day in Rome which meant it was the only time S and I had left to […]

Vatican City Museums

“When in Rome.” It’s a sentence used by many. Whether as a dismissal for eating ”too much” pizza, devouring too much gelato (is there such a thing?) or when you wanna do something a little risky (or risque *wink wink*) and need an excuse for a lil’ encouragement. OR It’s a sentence that, when actually […]

St Peter’s Square, Vatican City

Featuring towering columns that surround you, almost like arms embracing you inside the world’s smallest country, is St Peter’s Square—otherwise known as Piazza San Pietro. Perhaps one of the most famous squares, St Peter’s Square has become quite the gathering spot for tourists—and with its location inside the Vatican City, just in front of St […]

Ragno D’oro

Ragna D’oro was a place that S found whilst we were in Rome.     It’s funny, when we’re in England S tends to leave the dining out options to me. I’ll usually get an “anywhere’s good”, an “I don’t mind” or a “wherever you want babe” when I ask where he’d like to go out […]

Roman Colosseum

You can’t picture Rome without the Colosseum. Tall, magnificent and steeped in history both culturally and visually. The Colosseum has been in films, music videos and fashion shows so the Colosseum, otherwise known as Colosseo, is quite the monument! It’s iconic. So it was a must that when S and I flew to Rome, that […]

Best Tiramisu in Rome

Finding the best tiramisu in Rome is a challenge I happily accepted. Even though it was a challenge that I very much gave to myself.     You see, after exploring the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, my plantar fasciitis (killer pain on the underneath of my foot) flared up, which very much put walking […]

Roman Forum and Palatine Hill

Visiting the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill was something which occurred, somewhat, by accident. There we were roaming around, as one does whilst in Rome, when we came across the stairs to the Capitoline Museums. You see, whenever we travel S and I have a tendency to want to see certain areas and attractions, but […]

Trying Cannoli In Rome

Sampling my first cannoli in Rome was a messy experience. Ok, so technically I ate cannolo because I only ate one. But before we get to that, let’s rewind a little. I remember reading a post by Adventurous Kate a few years ago. I couldn’t tell you what the post was about, only that she […]
