2 Weeks in Italy – Costs, Itinerary and Getting Around

In the summer of 2016 I spent around three weeks in Italy. Combining my experience of that trip with other times I’ve visited Italy and considering the amount of time and money people will have to take a trip, I’ve cut my itinerary down to two weeks. In this post I’ll outline costs of food, … More 2 Weeks in Italy – Costs, Itinerary and Getting Around

Alfieri9 (Florence, Italy)

Relais Vatican Suites (Rome, Italy)

Last week during our visit to Rome, I was fortunate enough to collaborate with the team at Relais Vatican Suites to review their property. Given the name, this apart-hotel is located just a few minutes from the Vatican Museums, making it one of the best locations in the whole of Rome to stay in for tourists. … More Relais Vatican Suites (Rome, Italy)

Dersett (Milan, Italy)

Halfway through my degree in art history, I finally got to visit the place I have dreamed of visiting since my first set of Renaissance lectures. We timed our visit to Florence so that my 21st birthday fell during our stay there, thanks to my very accommodating and very lax other half. We stayed for … More Florence, Italy 

Leone Rosso (Sorrento, Italy)

We stumbled upon Leone Rosso by walking to the town centre of Sorrento from the train station. The restaurant is just a couple of hundred yards from the station exit, and its moderate distance from the waterfront and main street means it has a far more affordable price bracket than some of the other restaurants in … More Leone Rosso (Sorrento, Italy)

Ca’ del Cinema B&B (Venice, Italy)

For photographs and a breakdown of our trip to Venice click here. Cost We booked this hotel through Booking.com where it has a 9.4/10 rating. For two nights in a Standard Double room it cost us £173, which was pretty typical of hotels around the late July period in which we visited.
