The only way, really, to explore Bari’s Old Town is on foot. Wandering along the winding roads and down narrow alleys you’re sure to… Read More »

Coffee Adventures in Italy

I was three when I first went to Italy. Little did I know that later in life I would fall head-over-heels for the country—its language, culture, people, landscapes, history, food…everything. (So much so that I recently applied for citizenship—I’m eligible through my grandfather.) One thing I’ve learned from my many trips to the country is… Read More »

What to do in Venice

Joining our Dolomites Hiking tour? We end in Venice, but don’t spend much time there as a group. Venice is a maze of canalside promenades, narrow alleys, and ornate bridges. In the summer, when crowds are at their peak, it’s fun to escape by ducking down empty alleys. It’s an island, so you can’t get… Read More »

Italians and their Pasta

If you’ve never had pasta made from scratch, you are missing out. Fresh pasta is light, with just the right amount of “toothiness” (where the term al dente comes from), and has a savory flavor all its own—it’s not just a vehicle for sauce. Homemade pasta is imperfect and not uniform, which is part of it’s attraction. Someone… Read More »
