Lucca Roman Wall Photo by StudentessaMatta
This city street shows signs both of Lucca’s past and present; in the curvature of the wall you can make out the original Roman architecture; the bikes leaning against the building represent the typical mode of transportation which the contemporary Lucchese use to get around their city!

A magical night on Lake Garda! With the frenetic pace of our press trip now behind us, we had the opportunity to spend the latter part of our last day in Sirmione, Lake Garda, where we strolled along the cobbled lanes, admired quaint architecture, indulged in gelato and sat on the pier to watch the sun set – all was sublime in the world!

The 1st century AD Basilica di San Vitale in Ravenna is one of the most treasured examples of early Christian and Byzantine art in Western Europe. The basilica, with its towering columns and rich, vividly-coloured mosaics, is absolutely awe-inspiring.

A favourite because it is my little village of Ponte a Serraglio, one of the hamlets that make up Bagni di Lucca; you can see our apartment with its tiny balcony overlooking the river and the bridge.

“Venice in the Fog” – An early morning stroll through Venice in mid-winter conjures up the ghosts of winters past and gives a feeling of how this beautiful city must have been hundreds of years ago.

Italy has a way of weaving itself into your soul, not just for art and history but also for the sense of being wholly unpredictable, which is exactly why I adore it, the sense that you never know what might happen next.

This church witnessed my proposal to my future wife back in 2012, and with its stunning architect and its location next to the Grand Canal, I could not think of anywhere else where I would declare my love for her.
