The Dolomites Mountains, my holiday ✨

Hi everyone! I'm on holiday in the mountains✨ I'm having fun going for walks, taking photos, exploring the valley. The Dolomites mountains in Northern Italy are amazing and so are the landscapes you can see by reaching high altitudes. What I've enjoyed the most so far have been the waterfalls and the lovely brooks. Here are some pictures I took a couple of days ago!!
Anddd I really hope I'll see a shooting star 🌠 tonight!

Beautiful Italy – Part 3

LAST PART AND LAST ITALIAN TOWNS. 

This series of posts about Italian beauties is about to end 😦 This will be my last blog post about two small villages called Antagnod (day 1) and Champoluc (day 2) in the mountains in Northern Italy, situated in Aosta valley. The stunning landscape is composed of snow-capped glaciers and ancient homes in stone and wood. It was sunny, but very chilly and sometimes windy therefore I wore warm clothes for our walks in the woods. We walked beautiful paths covered in permanent snow and I stopped for lots of times to take pictures of flowers and the mountain range that surrounded us. We were at 1,900 meters of altitude and the view was gorgeous! We had lunch at a typical and cosy restaurant heated by a stove; the windows were so cute and they overlooked the valley. I had some polenta with cheese and butter paired with veal nuggets in tomato sauce: they were so good! I loved walking in the woods: they were so quiet and mysterious and there were lovely wooden bridges that made the place more enchanted. Plus, we saw several bushes and kinds of plants like the rhododendron, the larch and the spruce. At Champoluc we went for a walk through a park where some lovely wooden statues representing squirrels, fawns and fairies were put along the path. I sunbathed sat on a bench and then I stayed at a workout park where you could try some equipment to take some exercise. In the evenings we basically ate local food, so several kinds of cold cuts and cheese.

Here are some photos! I hope you liked reading this!

Beautiful Italy – part 2

Hey readers! This time one of the largest cities in Italy which I’ve been to is.. Bologna! It might be difficult to pronounce in English, but it must be famous for spaghetti alla bolognese! The city is also characterised by its lengthy porticoes and a way rather long street called Independence Street where you can find most of the shops. I visited the most important square that is “Piazza Maggiore” and the “Basilica of St. Petronio”, a lovely church with a panoramic terrace. We had lunch at an indoors market: it was very crowded! I had a roll in with ham, cheese and grilled courgettes. In the afternoon I did some shopping for clothes and then we went to some local food markets. In the evening we had dinner at “32 tavern” where I had some  Risotto with sausage, pieces of Grana Padano cheese and Lambrusco wine: it was so good! And as for dessert I ordered a berries cheesecake: this was fantastic as well! Luckily it didn’t rain, so we managed to have a nice walk around the centre of the city. Undoubtedly it’s a very important cultural and artistic centre and what I enjoyed the most were the medieval towers and the antique buildings. And then the food, that is good, very good!! 😉CITY

RISOCHEESECAKE

Beautiful Italy – part 1

It’s nice to realize how pleasant is visiting, discovering and admiring my country. I’m Italian and I have a lot of chances to go sightseeing around Italy. I’m going to write three blogposts about 3 Italian cities that I visited at Easter and today’s destination is..Milan!

I love going there more times a year, I usually go shopping and sightseeing at Christmas, Easter and on Summer holidays. This time I visited it with my friends and we had so much fun together. The journey took us about 45 minutes and we caught a train and the tube to reach it..it’s pretty near our city. We obviously stopped by Duomo Cathedral, Milan’s symbol and we took a lot of pictures. Even though we’ve seen it a bunch of times, we don’t get bored of it! Recently some cute palms have been put in front of the cathedral and it’s fun to think of visiting a seaside town. Most famous shops are along Corso Vittorio Emanuele, so we always walk down it several times. It’s often very crowded and there are buskers and mini shows. There you can visit the Rinascente: a huge store where you can find anything. After several escalators, on the top floor there is a restaurant and a cool view. Also at Galleria Vittorio Emanuele there are some shops, but big brands ones. The galleria is one of the world’s oldest shopping malls and has a lovely iron-and glass-roof. The largest park in the central area of Milan is Sempione park and it’s very lovely especially to picnic. Then it’s worth visiting Porta nuova business district that includes modern high rise buildings, a large park and an ice skating rink in winter!

In the afternoon we went to Arnold Coffee that it’s very similar to Starbucks and we had iced coffee with whip cream and a raspberry cheese cake. They were so good! Mine was with cinnamon and it was fantastic! It’s definitely my favorite cafe.

I hope you liked reading this blog post!
