If there’s one thing that Bergen County women love, it’s traveling luxuriously. Two women who are passionate about the art of traveling decided to make it a career as well as a lifestyle. Friends Sarah Walton and Lisa Condie made it a point to share their experiences with women everywhere and called it A Better Way to Italy. [...]
“Life is a combination of pasta and magic” Fellini once said. So, it goes for me. The Pasta gene is profoundly embedded in my soul. I learned this art before I learned how to write, watching and sharing the kitchen with women who enjoyed both the process, and the art itself. I have some childhood …

After a 45-minute drive past ugly bungalows and industrial areas, we’re ready to turn around and go home — to give up our annual family holiday. Puglia is not your traditional tourist destination, and we can see why.
But then, suddenly, we reach a spot between the foothills of the Appenines and the Adriatic. The air is filled with the scent of figs and there are monumental olive trees, more beautiful than any I’ve ever seen. Their trunks are knotted and gnarled, and they stand in the fields like giant soldiers.
Move over Rome and Venice…here’s comes Basilicata! We’ve recently watched an explosive interest in Italy’s southern region with a history of 11,000 years, and want to give you the full profile on Italy’s newest popular place to visit. Read below to begin your discovering of the enchanting Basilicata.
From Michelangelo to Giotto, the exquisite art in one of the world's most beautiful cities costs nothing – if you know where to look.
Late afternoon in Florence and suddenly the sky veers from luminous blue to blushing orange. The light on the Duomo changes in an instant. Brunelleschi's iconic dome burns a deep terracotta. The white, green and pink marble of Giotto's bell tower is incandescent. An Italian sign on the steps of the cathedral says, rather dryly, that "this is a work of art and everyone has the right to admire it". Not to stand and stare would be rude.
A time machine. Florence can feel like that at times. But sometimes, it’s a welcome feeling. A history lesson inside every doorway. Where time stands still and things are the way they were meant to be.
Massimiliano, one of the co-owners, welcomes me. A history lesson follows. Sostanza’s origin goes back to 1869; a starring role for Guido ‘Il Troiaio’ [‘a dirty man’], his unfortunate death in a post WWII bomb attack [while on his bike to get groceries]; a name change from Troia to Sostanza in 1977 [note that today most Florentines still only know Troia]. On the walls, the history is for us to see, from the family to the legendary to the regulars.
Con l’arrivo della scrittura digitale lo stile corsivo ha subito uno strano destino. Sullo schermo appare un po’ seghettato e in alcune font si piega di lato fino all’inverosimile. Per questo se ne raccomanda un uso parsimonioso.

Non è Natale senza presepe e quello vivente con centinaia di figuranti è una tradizione che prende origine dalla rappresentazione realizzata per la prima volta nel 1223 da San Francesco d’Assisi a Greccio e perpetuata per secoli in tutto lo stivale. #destinazionemarche offre la guida per rivivere la magia della "Notte Santa" nelle Marche e farsi un regalo dello spirito [...]
State entrando nella magia dei Monti Sibillini, una catena montuosa che si erge nell'Appennino umbro-marchigiano: territorio selvaggio in cui vivono animali altrettanto vivaci, come il lupo, il gatto selvatico e l’istrice in terra; il gufo reale, il falco pellegrino e l’aquila reale in cielo. Il punto più alto è il monte Vettore (2.476 metri), ma per giungervi suggeriamo di seguire i passi degli antichi viandanti, che consideravano questi monti un’epifania divina. [...]

From aphrodisiac salami to 50-year-old balsamic vinegar, exploring the Campo de Fiori market, nearby bakery and delis – what better way to spend a morning in Rome! A food tour of Rome After two days of overcast, rainy weather I woke up to a beautiful, sunny Saturday morning in Rome. I was relieved the rain had vanished as today I’d be joining Walks of Italy‘s Food Tour of Rome (a big part of which happened outside) and if it was half as good as the Wine and Food Tasting I did yesterday with Vino Roma it would be brilliant!
We were to meet at Campo de Fiori market at 10am. The instructions I had printed off from Walks of Italy’s website were spot on, as well as a map they even included a photograph of the meeting point. I arrived a little early and made use of the time to take some photographs of the market before the tour started.
Just before ten I met Simona, our guide, plus my companions for the tour, some really lovely American ladies. They were touring Europe to celebrate one of their 70th birthdays – 4 sisters, 2 daughters and a granddaughter – 7 in all! They were the perfect partners in crime for what turned out to be a memorable day, going above and beyond my expectations.
Look beyond the artistic masterpieces and discover the gastronomic delights of Florence, Tuscany’s capital, with this insider’s guide to the best places to eat, drink and shop for Italian delicacies.
You can walk everywhere in Florence, as much of the centre is closed to traffic. Taking in all the Renaissance wonders will spark your hunger, and Florence is home to some fantastic eateries. However, you can eat very well and really badly, as in any tourist mecca – avoid spots with a menu turistico or waiter out front. Italians eat Italian food, and their own region’s at that, but that is no bad thing. Tuscan cuisine is rich and flavourful with delicious specialities such as ribollita (bread and vegetable soup) and bistecca Fiorentina, a huge slab of beef on the bone that’s best shared.
