    22 Videos of Famous International Movies Filmed in Beautiful Italian Cities

    The weekend is here! Grab your popcorn. I’m a huge movie fan, and so do I like to travel. I’ve always wanted to do a post on movies filmed in beautiful Italian cities. Often times I binge watch when I feel stressed out and the need to detox my brain. Asides from travelling, watching a good movie – particularly a good horror movie – keeps me charged. Below are some international movies with scenes shot in Italy. Have you seen any of them?

    All You Need to Know If Travelling To or From Italy – Post COVID 19

    Unrestricted travel to and from European countries, with no quarantine requirement, will start on June 3rd. No official word yet on when restrictions will be lifted on flights to and from countries outside of Europe – but the external borders of the EU remain closed to non-essential travel until June 15 at the earliest. Don’t be too quick to rejoice as only certain people are allowed in – Italian citizens and residents, flight crew too, and citizens or residents of other European countries needing to pass through Italy to go home.

    Rome experience – Excuse Me, But I Have An Unpopular Opinion!

    “I can’t believe you’ve never been to the Capital – Rome”. That’s the reaction I get after I mention I’ve visited over twenty other Italian towns and cities except for Rome. “Rome is beautiful, you really need to see it” they would persuade. “Everywhere you turn is a piece of art, the street, every inch…” they would continue to say. “Alright, alright, I would visit Rome soon” I would answer, just to get them off my case.

    48 Hours in Florence, Tuscany’s Paradise

    Florence is known as the “cradle of the Renaissance”, la culla del Rinascimento in Italian and it is no doubt one of the most visited towns in the Tuscany region. I have seen a lot of blogs and websites add Florence to the list of places you should take a day trip to from Milan. With the fast train Freccia Rossa, it takes only about an hour and a half – so in the past, I agreed it was a great idea for a day trip from Milan. However, after I visited this beautiful city nestled in between the hills in Tuscany, I took a different stance. Florence needs more than a day…

    Remarkable Memoirs from the Sicily Street Food Festival 2017

    The Sicily Street Food Festival at Cefalu held in September.  There were a lot of traditional Sicilian snacks and food. From Panella to Arancina to contemporary snacks like burger (panino) but made in the Sicilian way – with swordfish shaped in the form of a sausage. An event that has the ambition to make public and private subjects dialogue on the themes of the enhancement of Sicilian food and the promotion of the territory. An event that has chosen to offer the stage to companies that have a preference for quality and focus on the value that tourism. The event is a homeland of the UNESCO heritage of the Mediterranean Diet that combines together taste, health, and local production. I had the…

    Mondello, the City of Crystal Blue Sea has My LEAST FAVOURITE Beach Around Palermo

    Mondello is a little posh town located in Southern Italy. The fact that this little posh town is a 10 minutes drive from the centre of the Capital City – Palermo, makes it one of the most visited destinations for tourists – and locals too. In Mondello, you would find luxurious villas and cute old houses dating back to 100 centuries or more. There is a popular notion that many rich Italians who live in Palermo simply go to Mondello during summer to relax at their villas – which is a stone throw from the sea. The town is at its peak during summer with an influx of tourists coming to vacay…

Just when I thought I will spend the summer exploring Milan and its nearby cities more, I moved to a new city at the peak of summer – July. Even though I love and miss Milan greatly, I am beginning to fall more in love with Sicily – the beaches, gelato, and food are to die for! Back to Sciacca, my first visit to Sciacca was on the 19th of August, and I have returned here again for two reasons – for love and for the silver clear beach – you can see the little white fishes…

    I Explored all the Famous Places in Turin City Under 13 hours – Day Trip

    A friend told me, you don’t have to spend a fortune to travel – you don’t have to go bankrupt. All you need to do is to search the best deals online, make a budget and stick to it! Following this advice, at the spur of the moment, I decided to take a day trip to Torino. Yes, I operate impulsively most times! Just like in the case of my trip to Paris.
