I have to say I wasn’t keen on Rome the first time I went there. I felt it was dirty and rather unattractive compared to Venice or Florence. But last summer I went back and I have to say it really grew on me! After exploring the Doge’s Palace in Venice and admiring the Ponte [...]
Before I visited Venice I had no idea that the whole city is actually an archipelago of 118 small islands separated by canals and waterways. Obviously Venice itself is the most popular tourist destination to visit on the Venetian lagoon- it was once of the most powerful capitals in Medieval Europe and today it is [...]
Venice is one of the most romantic places I have ever been in the world. It might be considered bit cliché, but there’s a reason it is so popular with tourists, couples and honeymooners. Take a gondola ride along the picturesque canals, pose for a photo on one of the many bridges, sit outside a [...]
If you’re looking for fun European cruises, I’d recommend a Venice cruise as one of the best ways to spend a wonderful holiday with your family, friends or partner. There are several Mediterranean cruises that include Venice, Dubrovnik, Split and some other beautiful destinations that will take your breath away. Your job is to find [...]
The Doges Palace and St. Mark’s Basilica are two of the most famous attractions in Venice and a must-see on your visit to the city.

Venice, I’ve decided, is my favourite city in Italy (from the cities I’ve seen so far!) It’s just so different. It’s a magical, watery world where roads are replaced with canals and cars are replaced by boats. Where else in the world can you see something like Venice?! I love getting lost in the quiet [...]
Florence is a very pretty Italian city, and its certainly full of attractions. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982, Florence or Firenze has lots of beautiful Renaissance architecture, monuments, statues, art galleries and museums. Whilst it’s not my favourite city in Italy (that title has to go to Venice) it is most certainly [...]
Who is this Pommie chick?
I'm a British girl from Manchester and I have been traveling solo since 2008. After graduating from university I decided there was more to life than the hours between 9 and 5, so I packed my journalism degree into my suitcase to travel the world and work remotely. I hope to inspire you to be your own boss, live life and travel the world.
