In the current situation, we can’t travel around Italy. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t read about it. I’ve just finished reading Eating Up Italy by Matthew Fort. It has certainly given us more ideas of where to visit once everything back to as normal …
Genova (also known as Genoa) is a beautiful seaside city in Liguria on the northwest coast of Italy. Foodies will automatically think of pesto. However, Genova has so much more to offer people visiting for a day or two.
The city of Reggio (also called Reggio di Calabria or Reggio Calabria) is the main city of the province of the same name. It is also the closest main city to us, 30 minutes by train or car. This is the third post of the lesser known places to visit after our post on Perugia, and last week’s post on Turin.

We’re taking a break for Christmas, but before we disappear until 2020, we wanted to say Buon Natale e un Felice Anno Nuovo – Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year in Italian! We’d also like to thank everyone who visited our little corner of …
