When you visit Tonnara di Scolpello you will most probably think it’s the most beautiful place you’ve ever seen — this Sicilian fishermen’s village is a true italian wonder, a natural museum overlooking crystalline water. •Stay (rent) what used to be the fisherman’s cottages and truly enjoy the epitome of a #roomwithaview ( SLEEP WITH YOUR WINDOWS OPEN.. There is nothing better than falling asleep and waking up to #mediterraneansea breeze) 🌊 • 🚗 Visit the close by (5-10 minute drive) Zingaro nature reserve 📷 @olivecooke (1,6) @niki_csanyi (2,3,5 ) @dianaelle82 @sophiakicko . . . . . #itaysegreta #secretitaly #tonnaradiscopello #travelerinsicily #sicilianholiday #sicilianlifestyle #dreamingofitaly #italiansummer #summerinitaly #travelerinsicily #riservadellozingaro #summerinitaly #sicilylove #tonnara #italianholiday #sicilytravel #sicilytourism #exploresicily #travelsicily #italylikealocal #igsicilia #traveltosicily at Tonnara di Scopello

We’re still floating around on #booknerd clouds after meeting the lovely @jorringer (she hugged me!!! 😭) at @skylightbooks. It was so inspiring to hear her convo with Sarah Manguso about Varian Fry and his uncommon heroism during WWII, the challenges of writing based on a historical figure, the moral quandaries we face in war and writing, and how one dogged person can make an enormous difference. And of course, no #bookstore visit is complete without more books: @daniwriter’s “Inheritance” which we’ve been obsessing over and a Italian travel book by novelist Rachel Cusk. A magical evening! 📚💗 #bookreading #skylightbooks #julieorringer #theflightportfolio #sarahmanguso #writerssupportingwriters #wwii #varianfry #bookhaul #danishapiro #rachelcusk #justonemorebook #shopsmall #dreamingofitaly #traveladdict at Skylight Books

The Emblem of ‘La Dolce Vita’ and the quintessential place of film director Fellini's imagination — the Luxury Grand Hotel Rimini, on Italy’s Adriatic coast, is a very special place where to stop by for a night when heading to Bologna or Florence. #italysegreta #italylikealocal 📷 @styleheroine @e.mmmm.e @nastyasasina_ @valentinamarzullo @ninasuess . . . . . . . #italiangetaway #travelerinitaly #lacostaadriatica #dreamingofitaly #rimini #federicofellini #adriatiaccoast #grandhotelrimini #emiliaromagna #italiandream #italianholiday #italytravel #italyroadtrip #italiasegreta #italiansea #italianvacation #riminitoday #italylove #summerinitaly #italiansummer #roomwithaview at Grand Hotel Rimini

I went to Puglia by myself a few years ago — a wondrous, exciting, lonely trip. Because I was alone, I could move fast and dart around to anything I pleased. I went to Polignano, Lecce, Alberobello, Locorotondo, Ostuni, Otranto, and Matera (which isn’t in Puglia, but in Basilicata) all in about 10 days. I rode on tiny, rickety trains whose schedules were mere suggestions. I had some of the best food I’ve eaten not just in Italy, but in the world — orecchiette with raw sauce, the fava bean puree with chicory that’s traditional to the region, pasta with tiny clams and woody mushrooms, incredible primitivos and verdecas. I stayed in a guestroom in a townhouse that had a leafy, vine-hung garden; the owner left a basket of still-warm-from-the-oven pastries and breads at my door every morning. I sat in cafes on narrow stone streets projecting life stories onto all the other people in the cafe, the people who passed. I don’t much like to travel alone these days and I wonder if I will have another trip like that one. But I cannot look back on Puglia with anything but awe and fondness and longing. #italy #puglia #travel #instatravel #travelgram #traveltheworld #travelwriter #mediterranean #locorotondo #dreamingofitaly #vivaitalia #italia #apuglia at Puglia, Italy

Been a bit quiet last few days because I had a bit of a shock as my crown came out on Monday. I could see the tooth below was completely decayed & would probably need to come out. I also need a filling to the tooth next door. Dentist will put a tooth implant in. I am literally petrified of the dentist and always have been to the point where I feel I need sedation but I could see he wasn't keen. Question is, do I have everything done in one go or over 3 stages? I'm keen to get it over and done with in one go, the gum heals & implant is completed 4 months later at a cost of £2,200!!😢 So instead, I'm consoling myself thinking ahead to a big anniversary in 2 years, May 2021 where we are planning a week trip to the Amalfi coast to Sorrento, Positano & Capri. Its been 17 years since we last visited Positano & I can't wait to plan this trip to the beautiful Italian Amalfi Coast......my tooth will certainly be ok by then!! Do you hate the dentist as much as me? . . . . . #londonmeetingparis #italy #italytravel #italytrip #italy_hidden_gems #cntraveller #darlingescapes #amalficoast #amalfi #positano #capri #sorrento #amalficoast_italy #visititaly #italygram #hatethedentist #toothproblems #traveller #traveltheworld #passionpassport #cucinaitaliana #italianescape #positanocoast #sorrentocoast #capriitaly #dreamingofitaly #foodandtravelblogger #thisisitaly #topitalianphoto #italy_traveller at Amalfi, Italy

Who’s heard of Orbetello? Probably not many of you, but this small town on the Tuscan seaside (close to @hotelilpellicano) is a great seaside destination for those who want to escape the crowds and enjoy long stretches of beaches, scenic hikes, day trips and simple fresh caught seafood. One more reason to go, the beautiful three room luxury b&b that opened last summer in the 500-year old Palazzo Raveggi, @casa.iris is a true gem! . When in Orbetello with your aperitivo ask for the “Anguilla sfumata” (smoked eel dressed in salt and vinegar) 🐠 🍸 . Close- by Beaches 🏖 Giannella Feniglia .

I’m pretending I’m here....at a little bistro overlooking the Mediterranean....while checking items off my to do list! No matter how organized I still always feel overwhelmed the couple of weeks before a big trip! Everything is good....all things are handled...it’s just the last minute tasks we need to complete. The kids are still in school and that’s actually a good thing since it occupies them instead of us having to making sure they entertain themselves at the house while we are wrapping up all the to dos. They still participate. They don’t get off without contributing to the vacation prep but overall it lies largely on my husband and I and so I am glad they are in school until the day before we leave! What tips can you share for taking care of the last minute tasks necessary before vacation? . . . . . #thewanderlustblogger #capri #bistrotable #italycoast #dreamingofitaly #travelbloggersofinstagram #vacationprep at Capri, Italy

My life has begun to take on some pretty ludicrous and topsy-turvy plot lines that could give a Woody Allen movie a run for its money. I throw up my hands in defeat, universe! The rest of the #weekend I will leave the dramatic and romantic antics to the actors while I stay hermit-like in my apartment binge-watching movies, tearing through a mound of books, eating cookies and shaking off what the world is currently throwing at me. I really wish the world would throw me less absurdity and more weekends under one of these vibrant umbrellas in #amalfi. #travel #amalficoast #italy #dreamingofitaly #wanderer #travelwriter #lifeabroad #europe #beach #dreaming #sunnyvibes #travelphotography #wanderlust #traveler #booksaremyboyfriend #sun #ohlife #lifeisstrange

Happy Friday y’all. Treat yourself to something you love this evening. You’ve worked hard all week. Take a breathe, a moment. That’s what I’m doing. . . One of our most fav Friday evening meals is a charcuterie board with a nice bottle of wine. Tonight I also made Thai inspired meatballs with a soya dipping sauce.
