Quick look at my recent trip to Italy

Quick look at my recent trip to Italy

Visiting Italy is always fun. I had been living in Italy for many years, I visited the majority of known places, I saw many of its famous monuments but it’s never enough. You simply can’t get bored in this country. Over and over again, in familiar places you discover something fresh and fascinating. At this point what I enjoy the most is visiting with Italian friends or showing it to the foreign friends. Both ways are awesome.

And here is my surprise for you: it is possible to join me this autumn to experience a real life in Italy. Live like a local for a week in Ferrara with me! A super cool idea for this holiday plus participation in 5th edition of Street Dinner!

Ferrara

There is no holiday without a short visit in Ferrara. My favorite Italian town was visited with a friend who hasn’t been there before. And this was cool. As he is a huge fan of cinematography he discovered that famous Italian director Antonioni was buried in Ferrara and indeed, he is. We went to a cemetery and found it. My favorite part, however, was just passing the time together, talking from time to time about what we saw, and sitting in a cafe for hours. Luckily, he was a perfect company to do the best holiday like things. So I had a great time, despite the unbearable heat. I’m working on a short clip from Ferrara these weeks, and I really hope I’ll share it with you soon.

Ravenna

One of the dreams of my travel fellow was a visit in Ravenna. Sure! Why not? By the time we went to Ravenna we were three. We went to Ravenna for one day. And this was even more entertaining. Two of us visited Ravenna before but the only thing I remembered was a pain in my knee caused by a little incident with a bee (running away from a bee I run directly into a road barrier made of concrete and- not surprisingly- hurt myself). So three of us went to this small town and got marveled with everything what we saw.

The mosaics in couple of its churches are amazing. I’ll write about this in one of the next posts as this is really exceptional.

…and finally…

The Dolomites

By the time we went to the Dolomites we were four. Spending the whole week in a small village Arabba and visiting most spectacular tracks around in great weather was causing a goose-flesh every day. I’ll probably never found precise words to describe everything so I’ll focus on sharing photos taken (by the time I left the Dolomites they were about thousand!). I’ll also describe precise itineraries I made in few next posts so you could visit the same places, if you wish.

Day one is here.

Day two is here….and will be continued.

Right.

The trip ended up in the German city of Munich, where three of us visited our friend. Despite the unexpected heat we spent marvelous time on lazy chatting about the recent trip. Warm welcome made this day a lovely conclusion of the whole trip.

So what I’m going to do is to flood all my readers with stunning photos from the Dolomites. I believe it is far better than my lame attempts to describe the beauty of what I saw.

About the author

I get easily fascinated with people and places. I am passionately curious. I get often seduced with the beauty of nature. Blue sky, pure water, white snow and endless horizon seams to be enough to make me happy.

    We have a lot of things in common then! I live in your favourite italian town and love Dolomites too!
    I’m going to go there at the end of the month with my family as we do every year but can’t wait to see your pictures!
    I always go to Fassa Valley (Val di Fassa), in my opinion the best Dolomite Valley ever, have you been there?

    • That’s cool Ilaria! Yes, I visit the Dolomites regularly, both in the summer and in the winter seasons. Last time I broke my leg when skiing (have a look here to read the story: http://nullnfull.com/2013/03/20/best-place-to-ski-val-di-fassa/).

      All in all, I totally agree with you: Val di Fassa is one of the best travel destinations in Europe. Have fun with your family and bring some delicious recipes so we all could benefit!

  • Please, do post a lot of the Dolomites pics! Can’t wait to see them.
