These are the photos from our trip to Cinque Terre in Italy! Each of these 5 UNESCO World Heritage sites is so unique and so beautiful that I genuinely struggled to cram all the photos taken into one blog post (even for a photo heavy blog post, it would have been way too many photos) … Continue Reading

I’d been to Pisa before and so in a lot of ways, I wasn’t expecting to see anything new yet this trip to Pisa both surprised and impressed me!I managed to cram in more sights this time and see aspects I’d missed out on the first time around and gain a fresh perspective on Pisa! … Continue Reading

Cinque Terre is one of those icon places in Italy that had been on my travel list for many many years (thank you, Pinterest). I probably recognised the pictures of the gorgeous Italian towns before I actually even knew their names. Determined to visit, we hurriedly booked flights over to Pisa and drove over to … Continue Reading

And boy, did it rain in Palermo! Our trip to Palermo was one all four of us were looking forward to for ages.

Venice is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and easily the most romantic cities in Italy.
