Roma… Ti Amo!

I just can’t get enough of Rome.

Every time I visit, I fall in love with the place a little more. It’s just, right, as a city for me. It vibrates like a city should, it is stunningly beautiful to look at from almost any angle, and goddam I’ve never eaten so amazingly well in any other city including New York, Paris or London, and many other well-renowned foody cities. Rome is just a fantastic place, to be.

So anyhoo here’s a few shoddy snaps from what is easily becoming my favourite city-break and holiday destination, Rome.

PS – Excuse the black splodges on the photos. Think my phone must’ve acquired some sand back at Macarelleta Beach, Menorca earlier this year in May.

Photos From Verona & Venice May 2012

Been so busy with web design projects recently that I’ve had little to even think about posting here, but I thought I’d at least throw up some Hipstamatic snaps from my recent holiday in the beautiful city of Verona. Also spent a day visiting Venice too, which was stunning but a little too busy with tourists to enjoy properly.

If anyone is thinking of taking a trip to Verona, I’d highly recommend you stay at either the spectacular Il Sogno di Giulietta hotel or with the lovely Elisabetta at the fantastic Corte delle Pigne which is easily the best B&B I’ve ever stayed at. If you’re eating out in Verona, you will unlikely to be disappointed wherever you go, but be sure to check out the Michelin rated Osteria La Fontanina, the chic Osteria Sottoriva on the medieval arcade that runs just by the bank of the Adige, and the sublime Hostaria La Vecchia Fontanina. Oh, and the fabulous Trattoria Al Pompiere is also definitely worth a special mention here too.

Ciao!

PS – This Guardian Travel article has some great tips on where to stay and eat in Verona.

Photos of Rome & Ravello 2011

Been so busy with work the past six months that I didn’t have time to get these holiday snaps onto this ‘blog’. Mostly pictures from around Rome and the amazing Vatican Museum, plus a few from places along the Amalfi Coast such as Ravello, Maiori and Sorrento.

Photos from Ravello, Rome & Pompeii

I’m experimenting with albums/galleries with this selection of Hipstamatic enhanced iPhone photographs taken during my holiday to Italy last September.

I was holidaying in Ravello, an amazingly beautiful hilltop town on the Amalfi coast, but also spent a couple of days in Rome and visited Pompeii and some other towns along the Amalfi coast.

If you ever get the chance to visit Ravello, be sure to check out Villa Cimbrone, the Palazzo Sasso, and Villa Maria.
