    Half a day in Padova

    On my last trip through northern Italy, taking advantage the max advantange of my (rented) car, decided to choose some small towns that were along the way where I could spend a few hours and get to know its key sights. This is how I got to Padova! Just 40 km from Venice, take the Autostrade A4 just straight forward… impossible to miss! As I mentioned in a previous post (Click here), the Italian motorways are well signposted. Although it doesn’t have the splendor of cities like Venice or Florence, in my opinion (and I will never get tired of repeating it) every Italian town has its own beauty and…

The town is so cheerful and lively, bars, restaurants, shopping and stores of all kinds! The way from London is pretty simple, only 30km away, the best option is taking the train! Journey lasts around half an hour and during this time you will be able to enjoy the typical ‘postcard’ landscapes as those electric Green countryside lands, the Thames river here and there, historical towns, Little villages and even leafy forests. Important! You have to consider this: Windsor has two train stations, ‘Windsor Central’…

    Verona , beyond the romance

    Known worldwide as the city of love and romance, which gave us Shakespeare’s classic “Romeo and Juliet”, Verona is one of the most visited cities in Italy, but in my opinion it is much more than that! A place with more than 2.000 years of history where one can appreciate the integration of impressive artistic and architectural elements belonging to different periods of time: From medieval constructions to a Roman arena, Verona is a must-see city not only for its romantic content but also for the countless stories it has to tell. During its history Verona lived almost everything you imagine since its foundation in I A.C. As an important…
