How to Reach Pompeii Scavi from Rome & Sorrento

Visiting Pompeii Scavi I think that Pompeii is one of those places that everyone knows about someway or another, but may not have had the opportunity to visit. We set out on our travels from the small town of Scafati just outside Pompeii where it felt like we honestly waited on a bus, any bus.. for hours. If you can hire a car I would suggest doing so.

The Best Museums to Visit in Rome

Capitoline and National Roman Museums For when the day is just too hot, especially at it’s peak between 12-2pm (I see why naps are totally vital, and acceptable by this point – can we introduce this in the UK?) it’s nice to get away from the heat and inside the cool marble walls of Rome’s many museums. We started out by just taking a wander around wherever our feet would…

Dressing for Dining Out in Rome

Dressing for Dining Out in Rome When in Rome its compulsory you find yourself the best Italian possible to enjoy a stupid amount of food and wine at. Fact. It took us a few days of being sucked into tourist traps despite how much we tried, of honestly quite average food. I felt disappointed, until then we found a small restaurant bursting at the seams with people and we knew,…
