Historic centre of Rome – day two

It’s so cool to wake up in the morning in the heart of Rome after a night's sleep, when the delicious breakfast, which is included in the price of the accommodation, is already waiting in the restaurant on the rooftop terrace. Amazing feeling! All you have to do is to get out of the huge bed and get dressed up, so that you can show up on the terrace. Colosseum On the first day in Rome we visited a museum,…

Weekend in Rome Another tittle of this blog might be 'Back to Rome' as we were there quite a few years ago. However, the last time we only spent part of our trip in Rome and spent some time traveling outside the city. We also visited Grotte di Frasassi and Vesuvius volcano. This time, it was a trip to spend a weekend in Rome - we wanted to walk around historic centre of the city and enjoy Roman food. We…

Rome is very busy touristic city and you may often get average quality food for high price. We were really lucky to find quite a few excellent places; this is an experience I write about here. Earlier we had a trip to Rome which included Italian cooking classes in Rome;…

Barcelona

The first thought that comes to mind when you hear the word Barcelona - it's something special! It is one of Europe's must-see cities. Like Prague, Paris, London and Rome. Straight away, I can't even say many more similar cities in terms of the added value of the trip. The list can then be continued with Venice, Florence, Vienna, Amsterdam, Budapest and so on. This is, of course, my own list and it may be different for everyone, but one…

Return from Italy to UK during COVID-19 pandemic

This blog is the second part about experiences during our trip to Italy during COVID-19 pandemic and is focusing on procedures before and after return. Traveling to the UK from a country on yellow list In June 2021 we had to go from UK to Italy; at that time Italy was on yellow travel list and only essential travel to those countries was allowed.

Travel from UK to Italy during COVID-19 pandemic

This blog is a bit different from all those I have written earlier. Traveling to the country on yellow list In June 2021 we had to go from UK to Italy; at that time Italy was on yellow travel list and only essential travel to those countries was allowed. Now, about a month later, some rules, for example, regarding self-isolation for double-jabbed travellers, have changed. However, the basics still are the same and I was thinking that this information may…

Around Tenerife

When we were planning our trip to Tenerife, we already knew that around this time there is an annual Tenerife Carnival, which is the second largest in the world after the Rio de Janeiro Carnival. After visiting Loro Park, we went to the centre of Puerto de la Cruz to see what was going on there. And it was really impressive! The city streets were full of people in carnival costumes; fun, joy and music was all around. So, we…

Sunny beaches in February It's a fantastic feeling - after the darkest winter months, in February to enjoy the sun and ocean waves! In the second half of February, we went with friends to one of the islands of the Canary Archipelago - Tenerife. Tenerife - this holiday destination is chosen by more than 5 million tourists every year, so our choice was not accidental. Although, the hot season in Tenerife does not start in February , it has its…
