Pompeii Bodies pictures – How are the bodies in Pompeii preserved? We can now see the body shapes thanks to the Fiorelli Method. Fiorelli method consists in pouring liquid plaster in the cavity left by the bodies in the solidified ash layer that has preserved its shape intact.

Are there still bodies in Pompeii?

The bodies we can see now in Pompeii are only the shape of the bodies, and not the bodies themselves. Anyway those bodies help us to understand what really happend in the last moments of their life. As a result it’s impossible not to be touched by the terrible tragedy those people experienced.

You can see the bodies in the Garden of Fugitives which is one of the most visited and emotional areas of the entire archeological park. It’s located in the south-eastern area of Pompeii, near Porta Nocera. You can find other bodies in the Forum Granary.

Food to eat in Italy: What should I eat in Italy?

food to eat in italy

Eating in italian is mangiare and it’s an important part of the Italian life. There are many different types of food to eat in Italy and food can make your trip to Italy more special. You can taste different food and if you travel from north to south you can see how food becomes more abundant and more seasoned.

Anyway the main rules for the food to Eat in Italy are always almost the same. Let’s start to consider the food you can eat in Italy in the morning.

The most important letters of the alphabet for italian food are only 2: C and P.

C as Coffee and Cappuccino

P as Pasta and Pizza

Food to eat in Italy in the Morning: Breakfast

The breakfast is small and sweet. In the hotels you often find the international breakfast with ham, eggs, sausages and much more but if you want a true italian breakfast, forget about all of these things.

The real protagonists of the italian breakfast are Coffee, Cappuccino and Brioche. Let’s spend a few words for each one of them.

Coffee. When in Italy we speak about coffee we mean espresso. When the italians order an espresso they simply ask for a coffee. If you enter in a cafe and you order an espresso it means you are not an italian.

After you order a coffee they may ask you a lot of questions because there are many options. If you don’t know what to answer simply say: normale. In this way you’ll get simply a normal italian coffee.

Cappuccino. Cappuccino is milk with a little bit of coffee. The cappuccino is for the breakfast anyway you can order it in any part of day. Cappuccino has a little foam made by milk on the top. This is what makes cappuccino so delicious and different from milk and coffee. You can also add cocoa in order to make it more tasty. Cappucino can be also lactose free.

Brioche is the solid part of the breakfast. The brioche is a Croissant that can be empty, with cocoa cream, with marmellade or cream.

In the hotel you can also find cakes, bread, marmalade and much more.

Lunch and Dinner

The main meals are lunch and dinner. In the restaurants you find the menu divided in 4 main parts:

Antipasti which are the starters that include smoked fish, the salami and the cheese.

Primi piatti where you find all the pasta they have,

Secondi piatti where you find meat and fish

and last but not least i dolci or desserts.

During important occasions or when celebrating events Italians have a complete meal with antipasto, primo, secondo and dolce. Anyway they normally order only pasta and meat or fish, alternatively antipasto (Starters) and Pasta.

So because you are in Italy you should taste all kinds of pasta. Pasta can be fresh and egg based such as tagliatelle, lasagne, tortellini and ravioli. Other kinds of pasta such as spaghetti, maccheroni, penne and rigatoni are dried instead.

Taste pasta with different sauces made with meat, fish, mushrooms or vegetables. In Emila Romagna taste the ragù alla bolognese. Did you know the word Ragù? In Italy we ask for pasta al ragù and not pasta bolognese. Then in Italy don’t ask for pasta with meatballs: it isn’t an italian food!

Cheese makes pasta with meat, mushrooms and vegetables more delicious. So at the restaurant the waiter brings you grated cheese that can be grana padano, parmigiano reggiano or pecorino. But don’t ask cheese when you have pasta with a fish sauce: it’s not used and the waiter has all the good reasons to look at you badly.

Food to eat in Italy? Pizza

When you go in a Pizzeria and they bring you a menu you may be confused by all kind of pizzas there are. Anyway you can normally also ask for a pizza with your favourite ingredients. During your trip in Italy take the occasion to taste more kinds of pizzas: the pizza is so delicious!

Food to eat in Italy

Aperitivo or Apettizer

A big trend in the last few years is the Apettizer. In many bars it starts about at 6 p.m. and it may finish at 9 p.m. You order something to drink and they bring you also something to eat.

Throughout the years the apettizer includes more food and in many bars it is called apericena. You can eat a lot and avoid dinner.

This is a good occasion to taste wine, relax and taste other delicious food.

5 Amalfi Coast Towns: Sorrento, Positano & other amazing cities

5 Amalfi Coast Towns: Sorrento, Positano & other amazing cities 23

Amalfi Coast Towns – The Amalfi Coast is famous worldwidely, anyway we want to know more about the Amalfi Coast Towns. We want to understand their main characteristics and their main attractions.

Let’s see the main cities of the Amalfi Coast, their characteristics and when you can go.

Towns in Amalfi Coast

Amalfi Italy

Amalfi has a nice city center and it’s quite busy in every month of the year. The 2 best things you can do are:

  • to visit the square where there is a beautiful church with a long stairway
  • to visit the Emerald Grotto by boat

The Amalfi Cathedral is the symbol of the city. It’s in Piazza del Duomo and it’s built with medieval Roman Catholic style.

In Amalfi you can take the boat and visit the Emerald Grotto. You can arrive to the Emerald Grotto also without the boat tour, anyway it’s a good way to admire the beautiful Amalfi Coast from the see.

The Emerald Grotto is not very big in size but the spectacle you’ll see it’s very marvelous. The water into the grotto takes an intense green hue.

It’s a good choice to stay in Amalfi in the touristic season although it’s quite good also in low season.

Positano

Positano is one of the best village town in Amalfi Coast. Many people are enchanted by its beauty.

Amalfi Coast Towns: Positano

As you can see below Positano is devoloped on different levels and starting from the top going down to the pedestrian center you have to follow a road on the coast. On this road you can find many restaurants with a wide view of the coast and of the see. It’s unique!

In the pedestrian area you’ll see many shops where you can find many clothes in a perfect Positan’s style.

At the end of everything you find something very precious in this area: the beach! This makes Positano the town to choose for those that love beaches.

As a result maybe Positano is the best town to stay in especially in the summertime but not in the low season. Positano is the town most affected by the touristic seasons!

Vietri

Amalfi Coast Towns: vietri

When you think about Vietri you think to its colorful potteries. You can’t go home without something. Here you can buy very nice gifts for your family and friends.

I prefer to visit Vietri rather than to stay there. Anyway Vietri like Amalfi isn’t strongly affected by seasonability.

Sorrento

Sorrento has a big city center with many shops of any kind. It’s more like a city than a town and despite it’s a very good place for shopping and where to spend the evening, this can make you lose the Amalfi Coast atmosphere.

Anyway it has a very nice balcony on the see where you can have your coffee or drink with a beautiful view.

Amalfi Coast sorrento

In summertime I would prefer to stay in a more Amalfitan style town than in Sorrento. In low season however it’s the best place to be in.

Walt Disney Studios Paris

Walt Disney Studios Park Paris. How is Walt Disney Studios in Disneyland Paris?

The entrance is very nice because it makes you feel to be in a Michey Mouse Hollywood. You can also take a picture with your favourite character.

To enter in the main area you pass through a covered area where there are shops and restaurants. It’s colorful and there are many nice details to look at.

Walt Disney Studios Paris: The park

When you enter in the park you find Walt Disney with Michey Mouse who give you the welcome.

How is Walt Disney Studios in Disneyland Paris

At a first look the park is nice but soon after you can understand that Walt Disney Studios is opened but a part of it is being refurnished. That could be a problem because the park isn’t very big and furthermore some attractions are closed for the new project.

I’m sure in the future the park will be much better than before but in the meantime the park doesn’t have enough attractions. In addition to this it hasn’t a final show.

Anyway don’t worry because it still has some good attractions and you’ll enjoy spending your time in this park.

There are also a few nice areas to see such as Toy Story Land that is very colorful.

The Best Attractions

I want to start to speak of the best attractions by “Ratatouille: The Adventure”. This is very nice and you’ll have a lot of fun doing it. You’ll live the Ratatouille adventure by the point of view of one of the little mouses. It’s a new 4D experience!

Walt Disney Studios Paris: How is the park? Magical or Mediocre? 52

You should’t have problems of long lines because Ratatouille has also the single rider option and this makes your entrance faster.

Crush’s Coaster is also nice but it’s often crowded and you can’t use fastpasses to have access to this attraction.

Walt Disney Studios Paris: How is the park? Magical or Mediocre? 53

Then there is an attraction you can also find in Disney’s Hollywood Studios Orlando: the Hollywood Tower.

The shows

In Walt Disney Studios Paris there are 2 theaters where they do some good shows. The shows change according to the season and to the theme festival of the period. Some shows are really worthy to be seen.

Paris Gardens

Relaxing and very romantic are also the Paris gardens. I think it’s very romantic to sit around a fountain and admire the city. Otherwise you can observe the city by the ferris wheel.

The couples in love can’t miss a walk by the Seine, as Woody Allen teach, and even better, a cruise on the boat. The cruise on the river allow you to admire the most celebrated Parisian monuments while you have dinner! Beautiful monuments and good food in a romantic atmosfere.
