Save Place
Lugano, Switzerland
Lugano, Switzerland is arguably one of the most beautiful places in the world. With the Mediterranean climate of the Ticino region and the Swiss-Italian culture, Lugano is not your average stadt der Schweiz. Palm trees sway and colorful flowers...

Almost a strone's throw from the island's capital of Orta San Giulio, lies Isola San Giulio; the monastery of San Giulio encompasses almost the entire island.

Save Place
Venice, Metropolitan City of Venice, Italy
Near the base of the landmark Rialto Bridge, the historic Rialto Market is well worth a wander. Seek it out in the early morning when it provides an authentic local experience (and awesome social-media ops), with fishmongers hawking their fresh...
Save Place
Calle Lion, 3383, 30121 Venezia VE, Italy
We spent the day walking around Venice and getting lost in its wonderful maze of streets. The end of the day found us facing this large church as the cat-in-the-cradle moon hung low in the sky. Randy went onto the bridge for a better view and...

Ponte degli Scalzi, 30100 Venezia VE, Italy
stunning walk along the bridges of Venice very late at night.
Save Place
ABC, Fondamenta Toletta, 1169, 30123 Venezia VE, Italy
Osteria Enoteca ai Artisti in Venice served the best pasta I have ever tasted. Once wasn't enough—I had to go back to this place again during my stay in Venice. The osteria boasts a great view, great atmosphere, great people, and most importantly,...
Save Place
Venice, Metropolitan City of Venice, Italy
I had been skeptical of the Venetian gondola ride, thinking it too touristy and overpriced. Last summer, however, I discovered what is so special about this Venetian tradition. A gondola ride provides a unique view of Venice from the quiet...

Southern Europe
Umbria's main cheeses are: Pecorino (young), pecorino (aged a bit), and pecorino (well aged). It can grow a tad tiresome. So I was thrilled to discover this goat cheese farm outside of Orvieto. In our visit, my children helped herd the goats,...

Between the medieval hilltown of Spello and the tiny village of Collepino is a path along an ancient Roman aqueduct. Park in a lot at the top of Spello, then follow signs to the aqueduct (fill up waterbottles at the cistern, you'll need that...

Spello dates back to ancient Roman times, when it was called "Hispellum" and was a favorite retirement village for wealthy Romans. There are pieces of that history apparent now, from arches to foundations to plaques. Walk slowly through the...

06039 Trevi, Province of Perugia, Italy
If you find yourself in Umbria during the month of October, find a way to Trevi for their Sedano Nero (black celery) festival. Different events occur on different weekends, but the sale of celery is marvelous. Sedano Nero is listed on Slow Food's...
Save Place
The Milan Cathedral, or Duomo, occupies a site that’s been holy since the time of the Romans, but it wasn’t until the early 19th century when the finishing touches were finally placed on this massive building. The Duomo is the fifth largest...

Via Maddalena, 1, 06038 Spello PG, Italy
As if the picturesque Umbrian hill-top town of Spello wasn't perfect enough, it's also home to the fantastic Vinosofia wine bar and shop. This beautifully designed space is as warm and welcoming as it's owner, American expat, Brenda. Vinosofia...

Via Angelo Mariani, 2, 48121 Ravenna RA, Italy
I'd heard that there was a production being done of "Sleeping Beauty" at the Teatro Alighieri (a classic baroque creampuff of a building!). So I managed to snag one of the last tickets for Sunday's performance and I'm really glad I did. It was an...
