    We queued for about 30 mins to get in. Entry is free. The inside of the basilica is beautiful and there is lots to see.

    La Sagrada Familia is a curiosity when seen from outside, which in itself makes a visit to it a must when in Barcelona. However, the real experience is to visit the inside, which is completely amazing! Gaudi definitely was a visionary, and he completely reimagined what a cathedral should look like. Gone is the dark and brooding interior typical of the Gothic cathedral, or the opulence and overindulgence of the Baroque cathedral: in La Sagrada Familia, there is light and beauty that celebrates the shapes and forms of nature, with columns and ceiling that mimic trees and branches, and natural light that pours in filtered through the stained class windows that create a truly beautiful light show. The interior lifts the spirit and this, above all, is what makes Gaudi a true genius in my view.

    Fabulous tour. Our guide was so knowledgable and her enthusiasm for the duomo and its history was evident. Worth every penny!

    The gallery itself is an okay experience, but I thought the flow and way it was set up was sort of weird and didn't make too much sense. You walk through a long hallway with statues and then go to side rooms with Renaissance paintings, so you're constantly flipping back and forth between eras. Also, the plaques next to each piece of artwork and statue don't provide any meaningful information at all so most of the time you have no historical context to help you understand what you're looking at.

    The Louvre is a much better experience and if you've been there before, you might find this gallery disappointing.

    We had a wonderful visit to the Doges Palace. The rooms are not opulent but the history is amazing.
    It was very interesting to hear how Venice was governed at this time.
    This site is well worth a visit

    A must do in Athens. A ‘combi’ ticket is good value. You may need to prebook but was quiet in the late afternoon when we visited. Signage could be improved within the site as it’s easy to miss areas.

    First time we booked this for our school trip to Italy, but surely we'll come again.
    The check-in is a bit chaotic, as nobody clearly takes charge of things. We booked a tour with an English guide, yet he was ill because of covid.
    We opted for an Italian guide instead and I translated for my students. Grazia was an absolute star, as she was very occupied with everyone's wellbeing during the tour but also explained everything we saw and did very clearly.
    The first part of the tour is underground, with some narrow hallways which the students absolutely loved. The second part is an old house with remains of an ancient theatre.
    Grazia was a perfect guide and deserves your preference whenever you can choose a guide. Grazie mille, cara!

    A very cool and informative museum. It has a huge and very comprehensive collection. The one downside is that the layout is a bit confusing to follow if you’re walking around, but even out of order the museum is great

    What a beautiful church in the hills of Bologna! I would highly recommend a visit here even if you only have a day in Bologna! I took the San Luca Express from the Piazza Maggiore in town one way, which took about 20 mins or so. The views from the church are just stunning. There’s a lovely courtyard where you can have lunch in the sunshine surrounded by sky & the beautiful rolling hills of Bologna! You can get the train back, but I decided to walk down the Portico di San Luca which connects the church to the city centre (666 arches in total). This took about an hour but definitely worth it & less strenuous than the walk up (which many locals do as part of a pilgrimage)!

    We were shown around this beautifully restored palazzo by la Contessa Federico herself. She gave a lot of her time and was very open about what it was like to live her life. Fascinating.

    It’s older than the Colisseum and much more complete. Not quite as big but it still functions fir the purpose it was built 2000 years later. Not sure why it us not really that well known. They do a season of opera here in the summer months and although opera is not my favourite thing I would imagine that it must be amazing.

    We took the bus from Sorrento train station (1.10 euro per ticket). Asked the driver to stop at Capo di Sorrento. Once there, just go down on your right. You can't access it with a puschair or if you have difficulty to walk. But in our case, we have been with our 8 and 12 years old kids and we loved it!! An hidden gem. Take your swimming costume! We walked back to Sorrento. Quite busy road but ok to do.

    Don’t miss Mt Etna, as it is spectacular, no need to go on a 4x4 tour as we went by hire car, the roads are superb far better than the town ones. They are a bit twisty, but that’s half the fun. Even in May it was quite cool at 14c near the top car park. At 2000m. About 6500ft.

    The old part of Boccadasse is very pretty and picturesque. It is also very touristy, so dont expect to be there alone. If you eat at one of the restaurants, expect higher prices than in Genoa, and dont expect too much. If you have enough time whilst in Genoa, I would include a visit to Boccadasse, but I wouldnt go out of my way to do so.

    This is really a gem! Take the opportunity to visit this place before the sunset and enjoy the view and its colours. Because the restaurant, it's possible to have lunch or aperitivo sitting in front of it. Absolutely recommended for couples, friends or families. Usually it's really windy, so just be careful in case of small children.
