From #Venice ’s Marco Polo Airport, it is best to take a water taxi or the Alilaguna water bus to the city center. A water taxi will take about twenty-five minutes, while the Alilaguna takes about an hour.
#Italians really do spend time savoring their food and drink, as well as their time around the table. They often cook with fresh, simple ingredients and eat seasonally.
what remains behind ..... #pompeiiruins #pompeiitour #italy
The entire world knows that Italy takes food and cuisine very seriously. Eating according to Italian standards, not only is a way of life, it is an art.
Although synonymous with industry and FIAT cars – the ‘T’ in FIAT literally stands for #Torino – the city is in reality the picture of elegance, offering breath-taking views of the Alps and the Superga Hill.
We walked from the #Pompeiitrainstation to the ruins, and lived the ruins. Adam, of the two of us, is the #historylover but I enjoyed it as well 😀⠀ -⠀ A few hours into our self guided tour, we realized that we hadn’t researched the place we checked our bags, and we had no idea how long our payment covered them keeping our bags.⠀ -⠀ We decided to head back early, much to our disappointment, but we grabbed our gear and went looking for a place to get something to eat. 🍽 We came across @thebritishpompei ⠀ -⠀ We sat, ate and enjoyed the AC in the heat of July. I don’t remember the food or drink, but the service was kind and the AC was cool. ☀️
Driving can be terrifying, yet it does also open up a world of exploration. Not forgetting #Italy ’s world renowned coastlines and islands which of course call for boat travel.
At the foot of the Janiculum Hil and a stone’s throw from the Ponte Sisto stands Trastevere’s main art gallery, the #CorsiniGallery .
'#ParmigianadiMelanzane ’ or Eggplant Parmesan is a baked vegetarian dish. The eggplants are sliced, cooked, and layered with ‘parmigiano’ cheese, buffalo mozzarella, and a zesty garlic, onion, and tomato sauce.
Being centrally situated in Italy’s infra-structurally well developed northeast, #Bologna is a major national and international transport hub.
We all have our own version when it comes to making #Bolognese . Some of us add mushrooms or peppers; others neglect pork mince or pancetta (both essential).
#Hemingway rose to literary fame through his Italian experiences, but it was Venice that solidified Italy into Hemingway’s legacy as a writer and artistic genius.
13th century #Tuscany was the focal point for political and economic growth, and on it's way to becoming one of the most powerful places in Western Europe.
A trip to Naples would not be complete without a purchase, or at least a visit, to the legendary #MarioTalarico umbrella shop. Now in its fourth generation, Talarico has been hand crafting world famous quality umbrellas for years.
#CivitadiBagnoregio , If you want a medieval town that's a lil less touristy, boy have we got one for you. There's even a drawbridge.
While not technically a lagoon island, #Chioggia makes my list because it provides the magical experience of Venice without the drawbacks that make visiting the city with small children or large groups fairly challenging.
Last two days to participate at our last contest dedicated to Ancient Rome. Do you need inspiration? These are the photos realized by Nida Ezdi in the amazing Pompeii with its majestic ruins. Are you ready now? Share your photos with the hashtag #youritalianways by tomorrow at midnight. The photo of the winner will be published on our profile.
It is easily possible to wander through #HadriansVilla for the entire day. However, there is only one average over-priced restaurant/cafe within this archaeological site. And you can only look at ruins for so long.
The Pompeian houses display a fine example of garden frescoes. Paintings in which plants, flowers, birds and fountains blend together, decorate the walls in order to create an illusionistic background. #casadelbraccialedoro #paintings #frescoes #viridarium #domus #wonderfulcolours #houseofthegoldenbracelet #pompeiitour #onceuponatimepompeii #
#Gianicolo or the Janiculum Hill is located on the west side of the River Tiber, just above the Trastevere district. It is a great viewpoint but surprisingly it is not one of the Seven Hills of Rome.
Hand-made gnocchi of #vesuvius meet the ruby red wine Piedirosso of the #phlegreanfields and the #musica #scugnizza of #Naples in an harmonious union!

Compared to the east side of the Tiber, #Trastevere has little in the way of ancient architecture.
#Follonica ’s main beach is great for kids. Its soft sandy beach slopes into shallow waters, giving them the option to paddle.
After exploring the northern islands of St Michele, Murano, and Burano, the perfect way to wind down your day is to take our #Venice evening boat tour.
#Rome really has it all; high street,high-end street, been-there-forever boutiques, food, and antique markets... it is the capital after all!
Hitting the road with a mapped out itinerary is one of the best ways to discover and experience #Italy .
At the base of Mount. Etna, the active volcano on Sicily, Italy’s largest island, are the ‘#TermediVulcano .’ Visitors can sense the closeness of the volcano; there are small holes surrounding the pools which smoke and gurgle with volcanic activity.
Ancient Roman mosaic from Pompeii: not only beautiful works of art but also an invaluable record of such everyday items : weapons , activities, tools, flora and fauna and portraits too. #pompei #pompeii #pompeiiruins #pompeiiarchaeologicalsite #pompeiiwithlinda #pompeiitour #pompeiiguide #pompeiiguidedtours #pompeiiitaly
The ancient Romans established #Portofino as a fishing village during the glory of the Roman Empire. They named it ‘Portus Delphini,’ most likely because of the copious amount of dolphins found offshore.
