Ciao Capri! An island of beauty, glitz, delicious food, friendly locals and brilliant handmade leather sandals. With a jagged coast, famous faraglioni (sea stacks) and numerous grottos, Capri stole our hearts! Capri was part of our “last minute pivot” so we booked this portion of the trip less than 24 hours before departing the States. A little stressful, but we ended up with a great itinerary for the three days we were on the island. Enjoy our adventures around Capri!Continue reading “Capri”
My brilliant friend – Ischia! An island that has been in our “travel vault” and we haven’t had a chance to get there, but fortunately on this trip we had a change of plans that brought us to this beautiful place. We had originally planned to go to Ibiza, but with increase of Covid cases and curfews we felt like Italy was a safer destination the night before we left for our two week trip. Having done some prior research of the island, the trip was booked within hours of departure for Europe and it came together nicely! We learned more about the island while we were there and would 100% go back to explore even more. It’s a destination that is visited by Italians (hardly any Americans) and your euro goes a long way. Enjoy our two days in Ischia!Continue reading “Ischia”
For a couple years now, Puglia was on the top of our travel list. It wasn’t until this year we had a chance to go to this lovely region in southeast Italy. After months of research we decided on an itinerary and still feel like we just skimmed the surface of the region. Read more to find out about our 6 days in Puglia!
Who wants to
play see Monopoli ?? Of course you are going to want to see Monopoli and maybe in fact you will get the chance to play Monopoly in Monopoli! Unfortunately we didn’t since we were only there for one night. Upon arrival, we were dropped off right at the walls of Old Town and we were able to walk to our B&B. The town of Monopoli is a fishing town that dates back to 500 B.C. The town was explained to us as quaint..which it was, but I would have to say it felt bigger than Polignano a Mare. Still the narrow cute streets, shutters and flowers but more people filled the streets at night. Scroll down more to find out about our 36 hours in Monopoli.
The best part of Puglia is that the region is relatively small, so day trips are very easy! We hired a driver to pick us up from Polignano a Mare and take us inland to three cities. Find our more about our day trip below!

All those years k talked about how much she loved this city and T now knows why. And for our readers – here is why:
