Holidays in Salento with children: paradise has a name and is called Vivosa Apulia Resort

We live near the sea, on Italian Adriatic coast, we lived abroad in many cities on the sea, we traveled so much… and after the long weekend spent at Vivosa Apulia Resort my question was: why didn’t we travel here before?!

Salento stole our heart, and the merit is not only a locality that represents an Italian tourist excellence: the merit is mainly of that paradise that Vivosa Apulia Resort represents and which is sublimated by location in Salento.Read More


If you are looking for an hotel in Florence, give yourself a view with Signoria Vista

When summer edition of Pitti Bimbo is approaching, we are always hesitant about finding an hotel in Florence. A very hot town in summer, crowded of tourists, with many solutions of accommodation already full just because of the fair. We often stayed in the immediate vicinity of Florence, but it was not an optimal solution neither for me, as I needed to be in the center of Florence early in the morning, neither for Sissi and dad, who wanted to visit museums.Read More


A weekend in farmhouse in Umbria: Castiglione del Lago and Principe del Trasimeno

We live near the sea, but we love going to the sea out of season when it is little crowded and not too hot. For a weekend of true relaxation, we decided to spend a weekend in Castiglione del Lago, on Lake Trasimeno, in Umbria. We wanted to relax, but also freedom: not having to respect times, especially those of breakfast served in the morning, it was one of the basic requirements of the whole family.Read More

Aquariums, sea and kids: where to see dolphins in Italy

To the Dolphin alone, beyond all other, nature has granted what the best philosophers seek: friendship for no advantage

Every child loves sea and everything related to it: sand, fishes, shells. Aquatic life has a particular fascination on our little ones (and also on adults, don’t you think?). Thinking that in the deep blue of the oceans, in the most remote abyss life exists, and that’s a life rich in species, makes us almost feel safe. Knowing that seas, oceans, abysses are full of life reassure us: it’s like when we look at the immensity of the firmament and we wonder if in the distant galaxies there is life… It’s that answer that heaven doesn’t give us.Read More

Bed and Breakfast in Rome: a luxury experience at Casa Montani

When it comes to bed and breakfast in big historical cities it is not always easy to find a comfortable and charming accommodation: often B&Bs have a family management, warm, homemade, but lacking a bit of privacy or of those special pampering that we wish when we are traveling, whether it be for holiday or business. Finding a good bed and breakfast in Rome is not easy: the offer is very wide and making mistakes is easy.Read More


Travel with Children: two days mother-and-daughter with the charme of Palazzo Montemartini

It tooks (almost) 6 years. Our first trip alone, a  mom-and-daughter trip, something intimate and special that we did to assist at a unique event not far from home: in Rome, together, just the two of us, as if it were a pajama-party a little special best-friends’ weekend.

When it comes to holidays with children many parents are a little scared: for some of them travel means relaxation and means no-children. Some time ago I told you my more than firm conviction on why travelling with children is important, why it should be done right from the start, why you should think of journey as an educational and formative moment, just like the school or other activities.Read More

Palazzo Scanderbeg: our home in the heart of Rome

Rome is the eternal city and probably no city in the world offers the same emotions: walking in the historical city centre in Rome takes you through the history and immerses you in our italian culture. With all its strengths and weaknesses: Rome reflects the Italian spirit all around.

Living relatively close to Rome, we often visit this city by our weekend for events, to depart by plane the next day, for business or just for leisure. We ever says no to Rome!Read More
