ITALY

W here To Go

W hat To See & Do

Rolling hills and wine for days? Tuscany is the place for you!
I stayed at the most gorgeous villa in Tuscany .. I had the most amazing opportunity when I was living in London to travel with the family I Nannied for. They paid for my trip to Italy to watch the children while they were on holiday. Sort of a win win I would say.  
We rented a car and drove to Pisa for the day which was just over an hour inland towards the west coast. A few months later I was on a contiki trip through Europe and ended up back at Pisa a second time. 
The family I worked for let me have a day off from watching the children during our time in Tuscany so I flew to Rome for the day. They say you can't see it all in one day, but you kind of actually can! But luckily I ended up in Rome a second time once again during my contiki trip.
​Florence ​ and Venice were two other stops we made during our tour in Italy. 
It's such a beautiful country so I wouldn't be able to recommend one place over the other!


When I was in Tuscany I stayed at an incredible Villa in the middle of the rolling hills. Besides eating grapes, visiting wineries and soaking in the pool all day, I didn't really see much more of it! But there was a lovely Medieval Village called Montaione and the roman city of Volterra near by which were beautiful for a day trip!
The learning Tower of Pisa was surprisingly alot smaller than I was expecting it to be, for whatever reason. But the history behind it and the buildings surrounding it is very interesting and defintelty worth checking out and taking an iconic photo of trying to hold it up!
Rome is sooooo stunning. Some of my favourite buildings to visit in Rome are 
- Roman Forum
- Trevi Fountain
- Spanish Steps
- St Peter's Basilica
Florence's infamous night club, Space Club is great for a night out. Learn more about the beautiful city by touring Florence Cathedral and the Gallery dell'Accademia​.
Go for a Canal River Cruise in a gondala in Venice! Visit other sites the island has to offer such as St Marks Basilica, Piazza San Marco and San Marco Campanile.

Entrance Visa

The first time I visited Italy was in August 2015. Tuscany and Pisa was extremley hot and there were tons of mosquitos so defintetly pack some bug spray for the rolling hills.
I spent one day in Rome and it was the hottest day of my life!
When I visited Italy the second time in the month of January, Rome, Pisa and Florence were chilly and rained quite a bit.
Italy is a pretty big country so the weather varies throughout the year depending on where you are going considering you can go skiing in the alps or sun bathing at some of the nude beaches!
