Text of the video:

Hi everybody, we are in Bardolino on Lake Garda. This beautiful town is undoubtedly one of my favorites among those on Lake Garda.

What do I like about Bardolino? The beautiful walk along the lakeside, the center with the shops, and the wide beach.

I also love to admire the sunset: the sun that gradually hides behind the mountains, the beautiful sky colors, and the lights of Bardolino reflecting on the lake.

This is why I invite you to watch this video in its half where you see the sunset and in the final part where you see the lights of Bardolino reflected in the lake water.

The big wine barrel in front of us is the giant wine barrel with the words “I love Bardolino”. You also saw it at the beginning of the video.

Why a wine barrel?

Have you ever heard about the Bardolino wine?

Here’s why!

You can then go inside the barrel and get a unique memory picture with Lake Garda in the background.

Let’s continue our walk now!

You can come here to Bardolino for several reasons: to relax, for a good aperitif or for a walk, but Bardolino can also be your starting point to reach other beautiful places on Lake Garda by boat.

Continuing the walk in this direction you arrive at the beach.

Now let’s enjoy quietly the sunset and our evening walk.

1. The barrel symbol of Bardolino on the lakefront

The barrel is a beautiful attraction for all visitors to Bardolino. You can find it on the lakefront not far from the Bardolino Ferris wheel. You can go inside the barrel and take a nice souvenir photo.

What makes the picture in the barrel particularly beautiful is in addition to its shape and the inscription of the place, the fact that the opening is made in the shape of a heart. In this way, you can be immortalized inside the barrel in the shape of a heart with Lake Garda as a background.

Watch the following video and don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel if you haven’t already! Click here to subscribe!

For a nice photo, it’s best to have your photo taken in the morning. The big problem with where this barrel has been placed is that it has the light behind it for most of the day making it difficult to get a perfect shot.

2. Lakefront Bardolino Lake Garda

We offer you a virtual walk along the lakefront in Bardolino Gardasee in the summer. We see the lakefront and the most characteristic places of this town on Lake Garda.

As you can see, the lakeside walking way is nice thanks to the wooden planks placed along the way and the colorful flowers.

View of Bardolino Lake Garda

From the barrel of Bardolino, we followed the lakefront and now we are slightly outside the center of this locality. From here you can clearly see the profile of this city and the pleasant comings and goings of tourist boats.

The following video from the “Tripilare Moments” series shows you a beautiful view of Bardolino and its marina. We also observe the boat that sails on the lake and arrives at its destination.

Of course, a boat that comes and a boat that goes;). Here in the following video (Bardolino Gardasee 2020 Bardolino Lago di Garda boat) the departure of the boat.

Sunset

Here in Bardolino, we admire a beautiful sunset over the lake with a fountain that takes water directly from Lake Garda and adds beauty to this scenery.

We are in the spring of 2021, and here in Bardolino, we no longer see the Ferris wheel that characterized this magnificent location on Lake Garda in recent seasons. On the other hand, we have this fountain directly on the lake. Watch the following video!

3. The historic center of Bardolino

The historic center is very interesting to explore for various reasons. The center of Bardolino is full of shops, restaurants, historic buildings and also has surprisingly unique corners.

4. Bardolino beach

Bardolino is a fairly privileged location on Lake Garda as it has a beautiful beach. Furthermore, the beach is slightly moved from the center but easily reachable on foot.

In fact, we keep our direction walking along the lakefront of Bardolino and in a few minutes, we arrive at the beach.

5. Sunset in Bardolino Lake Garda

Watching the sunset in Bardolino is definitely one of the things to do before dinner. Relaxing on a bench watching the sun go down and then admiring the colors of the horizon is very beautiful.

Watch the following video with accelerated speed shooting “Sonnenuntergang Bardolino Gardasee 2020 Lago di Garda Bardolino”.

Returning to the center we also have the opportunity to admire the arrival of the boat with the background of the sky-colored by the sunset.

6. Ferris wheel

The Ferris wheel quickly became a Bardolino must. It is particularly beautiful and fascinating in the evening when it lights up with 100 colors.

How do you get 1 Disneyland Paris Fastpass? Is it free?

disneyland paris fastpass scaled

How do you get 1 Disneyland Paris Fastpass? Is it free? – Fast Passes at Disneyland Paris have long been used to allow you to skip the line for free to enter your favorite attraction. Fast Passes were essential to enhance your Disney parks experience especially when the parks were particularly busy.

If you go to Disneyland Paris now, however, you must know that they have unfortunately now been replaced by Disney Premier Access. Disney Premier Access is a non-free but paid service that allows you to skip the line at the most popular attractions in Disneyland Paris.

How Does Disney Premier Access Work?

How Does Disney Premier Access Work? Let’s see how it works in 4 steps:

  1. Open the app and log into your Disney account or create one.
  2. Associate your ticket, your package stay or your Annual Passport to your account. You should do this before your visit to the park. This way you can organize yourself better and not waste time.
  3. Once you are in the Disney parks, choose an attraction and add the people you want to do it with. You will be offered a time slot, subject to availability.
  4. After payment, go to the dedicated row of the attraction in the time slot that has been assigned to you with your QR codes (available in the “My Disney Premier Access” section of the application).

How Fastpassess worked in the past.

If you are used to use the Disneyworld FastPass you’ll notice there is a big difference with Disneyland Paris Fastpass. Anyway, they are essential to visit Disneyland Paris especially when the park is too crowded.

In Disneyworld your ticket allows you to book in advance your 3 FastPass per day using the app. Also in Disneyland Paris, your ticket includes freely the Fastpass, but you can’t book them in advance.

Furthermore, Disneyland Paris Fastpass cannot be booked on all the attractions. The list of attractions found at the park entrance indicates whether a fast pass can be booked for a specific attraction.

How do you get a Disneyland Paris Fastpass?

When you are in the park and you want a FastPass you have to go to the ride you want to do and scan your ticket to the Fastpass machine. This machine gives you back the Fastpass ticket with the assigned time. The time on the ticket has a range of half an hour.

To sum up:

  1. Go to the attraction
  2. Scan your Disneyland Paris ticket on the fastpass machine
  3. The fastpass machine prints your fastpass ticket
  4. Come back to the attraction at the assigned time

Can I choose the time of my fastpass?

No, you can’t because the machine assigns you the first time available.

disneyland paris fastpass

Can I book all Fastpass that I want?

Yes, you can but pay attention! You can book only one Fastpass at a time and before taking the next one you have to complete your reserved ride.

It is, therefore, useful to make your own considerations. If I want a Fastpass for an attraction but the first time available is 6 p.m. I should consider that I can’t take other fast passes till that time. Is it maybe better to choose another Fastpass before that one?

Are Disneyland Paris Fastpass always available?

No, because they are only available till they don’t finish the available times. That means they can finish fastly when the park is too crowded. In August many attractions had run out of fast passes already in the morning.

My advice is to take your first Fastpass as soon as you enter the park or maybe soon after your first ride.

Best restaurants in Positano Italy with a view

We have selected for you the best restaurants in Positano Italy with a view. Here is our result:

  1. Il Tridente
  2. La Sponda
  3. La Tagliata
  4. Terrazza Celè

Top 3 Best restaurants in Positano Italy with a view

Il Tridente

Il Tridente is an excellent restaurant because it has a great view it has open spaces, the bar is nice and every dish we tasted was amazing.

Top 3 Best restaurants in Positano Italy with a view
Top 3 Best restaurants in Positano Italy with a view

It is an elegant restaurant with a nice view, good food and it is not too expensive. The staff is very friendly but at the same time professional.

For the food, we all appreciated the appetizer offered by the restaurant: Fiori di Zucca in pastella. It was very delicious. We also appreciated the ravioli because they had perfect combinations of ingredients: pesto, tomato and mozzarella di bufala was a great combination.

The pasta linguine with the lobster was delicious. The linguine were amazing because the taste was excellent and also the portion was big. Also, the lobster had a good size in the pasta for the price.

We also appreciated the dessert Delizia al Limone because it was super creamy, sweet and just the right amount of lemon.

The atmosphere is perfect because you have an elegant restaurant, with a special view on Positano, a good service, the people in the restaurant are friendly. Furthermore, there is also the music that makes your experience at the Tridente restaurant more special.

La Sponda

Eating in this restaurant is a really nice experience especially if you’re not on a budget because this restaurant is very expensive. La Sponda is very elegant and the menus offer a different taste and not simple dishes.

Top 3 Best restaurants in Positano Italy with a view
Top 3 Best restaurants in Positano Italy with a view: La Sponda.

The atmosphere is the best among all the restaurants in Positano. There were the mandolins and 2 men normally play and sing typical Italian songs and other famous songs such as the Godfather. They also come next to your table and they make you feel very special. Furthermore, the view is amazing.

Watch the following video and Subscribe to our YouTube Channel if you aren’t already subscribed! Subscribe here!

It is not a good place for kids because the menu doesn’t contain typical food and the taste of these dishes may result in a little strange if you’re not used to eating it and you are used to eating simple food.

We could insert the Sponda to the very top of our list but it is very expensive and it is not for everybody.

La Tagliata

The Tagliata is very good, they give you huge portions and so you get a good value for your money. The quality of the food is good, they don’t give you fancy food but it’s homemade food, rustic.

The view of the Tagliata is excellent. If you go for the sunset you have an amazing view especially if you ask for a table close to the window in order to sit near the balcony because the view on the inside isn’t as good.

It’s a good place especially for families because it isn’t super fancy. You don’t need to dress up and it is also convenient because they bring you up with the shuttle and they bring you to the restaurant. In this way, you don’t need to worry about the drive because it’s not so easy to get here by car because in this area they are quite crazy drivers. ;).

The following video shows you the amazing view from this restaurant terrace at sunset time.

Terrazza Celè

Terrazza Celè is another good restaurant in Positano. It is located at the left of the beach if you have in front of you the beach and the sea. In this way, you can see Positano from a different point of view. Terrazza Celè is in fact at the opposite side of the restaurant Il Tridente.

Terrazza Celè is a very cute restaurant, with a relaxed atmosphere and quite elegant. You can get to this restaurant on foot and you don’t need any transportation if your hotel is close to the center of Positano.

The food is good, the portions in the dishes are just right, well presented and you can spend a really good evening at this restaurant without spending too much if we consider Positano’s prices.

Last but not least the Delizia al Limone, one of the typical desserts of this area, was very good. A good balance between the cream and the sponge cake.

Best restaurants in Positano Italy without a view

There are other very good restaurants in Positano but that they don’t have a view. Here you can find the list of the restaurants in Positano we have selected for you.

  • La Taverna del Leone
  • Il Saraceno
  • Da Vincenzo

Da Vincenzo

It’s a very good restaurant. The panzerotti they have are very good because they are crunchy. The ravioli with scamorza, pomodori and melanzane were very appraciated in our table. The shrimp tempura was very good. The tempura was light but crunchy and they give you big shrimps.

The best dessert in this restaurant we have tasted is cheesecake with berries.

This restaurant offers a very good value for the price. They have very good food, the restaurant is nice and is located in Positano. You don’t need any transportation to get here if you stay in Positano.

Da Vincenzo, you don’t have the view but you can see an amazing view soon after you are out of the restaurant.

Il Saraceno

It’s a good restaurant, especially for the pizza. The pizza is very good for a good price in Positano. It’s a place where you can go with your family and a place where you can eat good Italian pizza.

The pizza is excellent and it has a good quantity of toppings in the middle and the crost wasn’t too big. For example one of our pizzas had good tomatoes, bufala and mozzarella. The crost was also cooked perfectly.

The location isn’t special because there is no view it is an easy place for a pizza. It’s a place where you can go with your children. About the service, the waiters are sometimes pushy but also friendly.

La Taverna del Leone

It’s not in the center of Positano but you don’t have a problem getting to the restaurant because they have a shuttle service. The restaurant is along the main road and you don’t have any view.

For the amount of food and the quality, the price is reasonable. They have scallops with bacon that are very good. We also liked the cheesecake but the best dessert was the Croccante con Torroncino: very delicious!

We appreciate the service because it wasn’t super professional but they were very reasonable to adapt the tasting menu to our needs. In fact in this restaurant, you can choose a tasting menu of 5 dishes.

6 very Amazing Italian Amalfi Coast Towns

amalfi coast amalfi italy scaled

6 very amazing Italian Amalfi Coast Towns – The Amalfi Coast is famous worldwide, and that’s why we want to know more about the Amalfi Coast Towns that make this coast so special. 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.

Italian Amalfi Coast Towns

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 perfect 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 sea where you can have your coffee or drink with a beautiful view. Then from Sorrento, you can see something you can’t see from Positano or Amalfi: the volcano Vesuvius.

In the following video, you can see this beautiful view from this balcony at sunset time. Watch the video and subscribe to our YouTube Channel if you aren’t already subscribed! Subscribe here!

In the 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.

If you are In Sorrento in summer for many reasons you can go to Marina Grande for a day on the beach. As I’ve already said it’s not the best beach on the Amalfi Coast but it’s cute.

In Marina Grande, there are many restaurants. Dinner in one of those restaurants, especially those in the see it’s a beautiful experience. You can enjoy the sunset on the sea.

We can now move to the next Amalfi Coast Town: Positano. So let’s take the boat for Positano.

The following video is in Italian but you can enable the subtitles in your language.

Positano

We’re now arriving at one of the best village towns on the Amalfi Coast: Positano. Many people are enchanted by its beauty.

Italian Amalfi Coast Towns
6 very amazing Italian Amalfi Coast Towns: Positano

As you can see below, Positano is developed 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 the sea. It’s unique!

Read the following post: restaurants in Positano Italy with a view.

You’ll see many shops in the pedestrian area where you can find many clothes in a perfect Positano style.

Italian Amalfi Coast Towns

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 tourist seasons!

What can you do in Positano? Read the following post: Positano Italy: unforgettable Things to do in Positano.

Amalfi Italy

Amalfi Italy is a very characteristic Italian Amalfi Coast Town. Like Positano, Amalfi is recognizable while you’re arriving by boat thanks to its buildings among the rocks and its unique cathedral.

Watch the following video and Subscribe to our YouTube Channel if you aren’t already subscribed! Subscribe here!

Amalfi has a nice city center and it’s quite busy every month of the year. The 6 best things you can do are:

  1. to visit the square where there is a beautiful church with a long stairway
  2. relax on the beach
  3. to visit the Emerald Grotto by boat
  4. visit the other beaches in the area (for example the beach il Duoglio)
  5. visit the Amalfi Villas in Ravello. You can go to Ravello by bus.
  6. you can taste your delicious icecream or much better a lemon granita
Italian Amalfi Coast Towns lemons
Italian Amalfi Coast lemons

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

Amalfi has a nice beach, but it isn’t the only beach in the Amalfi area. There are also other beautiful hidden beaches you can easily get to by boat from Amalfi. Il Duoglio is one of these beaches. Watch the following so you can see the coast in the Amalfi area.

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

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

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

Ravello Italy

Ravello is visited especially for the 2 amazing villas that are here:

  • Villa Rufolo
  • Villa Cimbrione: In Villa Cimbrone there is the amazing terrace of infinity.

If you want to know more about this Italian Amalfi Coast town read the following post: Ravello Italy things to do.

Ravello Beach

Ravello is a town built on the side of a mountain. Consequently, you don’t have the beach in Ravello, but you have a beautiful view of the Amalfi Coast. If you want to relax on the beach, you can go to the beach or Amalfi or Castiglione Beach.

Vietri

Vietri is a town located at the end of the Amalfi Coast, near Salerno. It is a very characteristic town with a strong personality. Vietri Sul Mare is in fact the City of Ceramics. A walk through the streets of Vietri is definitely something to do on the Amalfi Coast.

When you walk around Positano you are immersed in Positanesi-style fashion, when you walk through the streets of Vietri Sul Mare instead you find yourself in a beautiful display of colors on ceramic. Ceramics are not only found in shops but Vietri is also an open-air exhibition of his art.

The ceramics cover portions of the walls, form the cornice of the staircase of the municipal villa and even the benches overlooking the sea are of many different colors.

If a lot of walking has made us hungry, we can satisfy our appetite with an excellent sandwich with the exquisite buffalo mozzarella that we find at the La Contadina shop. It is located not far from the municipal villa where we can go and enjoy it with a beautiful sea view!

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

Amalfi Coast Towns Amalfi Coast vietri
Amalfi Coast Towns: vietri

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

Behind us, we also have the Stresa pier where you can take the boat to visit the islands and other places on Lake Maggiore such as the Hermitage of Santa Caterina, Verbania, and Baveno.

In front of us, we see Isola Bella. Until 1630 Isola Bella was only a rock inhabited by fishermen. Today, it is one of the most beautiful things to visit on Lake Maggiore for the magnificent Borromeo palace and its gardens, which have been included among the most beautiful gardens in the world by sites and specialized magazines.

Just turning our gaze, we also see the mother island. Isola Madre, already owned by the Borromeo family since about 1500, is now worth a visit, especially for its garden. Today, the one on Isola Madre is a unique botanical garden for rare plant essences worldwide that finds an excellent home here on Lake Maggiore thanks to the mild and favorable temperatures. Behind the Isola Madre, along the coast, we can see Verbania and, more precisely, Pallanza and Suna’s areas.

In fact, after a stretch of sidewalk that runs along the road, you can get to another walk that runs along the lakefront and ends at the square, where it is possible to take the cable car to the Mottarone. This place is one of the most beautiful places to take a picture or take a selfie due to Isola Bella and Pescatori’s proximity.

Text of the video:

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new adventure! Today we are at Lake Maggiore. We explore the Isola Superiore or Isola Pescatori, which means Fishermen’s Island.

The Isola Pescatori can be easily reached by boat from Stresa, Verbania Pallanza and Baveno. To take the boat, you don’t need to buy the ticket in advance or make a reservation. You can also buy the ticket just before boarding.

Access to Isola Pescatori is free. You do not have to pay any entrance fee apart from a small tax from the municipality of Stresa, already included in the amount paid to take the boat.

When is the best period to visit Isola Pescatori? Naturally, the best time is during the spring and summer, but it is also good to come during the winter.

Why come to Isola Pescatori? Because it is very characteristic and beautiful to visit, especially after a good lunch in one of the good restaurants you can find here. Hours spent on this island are always unique.

After lunch, we take some pictures in one of the most instagrammable places on the island. From here you can see very well the beautiful palace of the nearby Isola Bella or Beautiful Island.

Behind Isola Bella, there is Stresa. Now we see the restaurant and hotel Verbano. Then, on the right, we have the Isola Madre with Verbania behind it.

Let’s now go to the opposite side of Pescatori Island to see Isola Madre and Verbania better. In doing so, we will see some of the very characteristic places of the island.

This side of the island with this view is also beautiful. What do you think? If you prefer this view, you can choose to have lunch in one restaurant on this side of the island.

We are walking along the tree-lined avenue that we saw from the boat! In front of us, we see Baveno!

We are now back to our starting point, but there is also a lot to explore. Let’s now pass through the main street of this narrow island and admire the views that this path also gives us.

Ok! It’s time to relax while waiting for the next boat to arrive.

Isola Bella or Beautiful Island

Isola Bella is the island of the Borromean Islands closest to Stresa. From the lakefront of Stresa, you can clearly see the gardens on various levels of Isola Bella. Taking the boat from Stresa you can reach Isola Bella in a few minutes.

When you get off on the island you can visit the area where you will find various stalls, shops, bars, and restaurants without paying any entrance fee. However, the most beautiful part is the one inside the Borromeo palace.

By paying for the entrance ticket you can visit both the villa overlooking Lake Maggiore and the gardens. If you are in Stresa it is definitely worth visiting the island and the palace.

Isola Madre

Isola Madre, already owned by the Borromeo family since about 1500, is now worth a visit, especially for its garden. Today, the one on Isola Madre is a unique botanical garden for rare plant essences worldwide that finds an excellent home here on Lake Maggiore thanks to the mild and favorable temperatures.

In the Isola Madre, you can also visit the old Villa that was the Borromean residence before the construction of the Beautiful Island Palace.

Isola Madre is also the ideal destination for those who are in Verbania Pallanza. In fact, taking the boat from the Pallanza pier you will arrive in a few minutes on this island which is part of the Borromean Islands.

In spring-summer, you can appreciate the beauty of the gardens of Isola Madre already from the boat. The vegetation that covers it is always something beautiful to admire. Access to Isola Madre is only possible with the purchase of the ticket. In fact, when you get off the boat you will immediately find the entrance gate. This is important to know before planning your visit to Isola Madre.

This is in fact a substantial difference compared to other Borromean Islands such as Isola Bella, in which there is the palace and gardens to visit with an entrance ticket but also a free area with stalls, bars, and restaurants.

3. Hermitage of Santa Caterina

A very characteristic place of Lake Maggiore is the Hermitage of Santa Caterina. This Hermitage which seems to be set in the rock is located not far from Laveno and not in Stresa. However, Stresa is an excellent and convenient starting point for taking the boat that takes you directly to the Hermitage of Santa Caterina. To visit the hermitage it is only necessary to pay the cost of the boat because the entrance is usually included in the boat ticket.

Top 10 Stresa Italy things to do Lake Maggiore: Hermitage of Santa Caterina

The hermitage is very characteristic as it is a building built on the rock in front of the lake. I recommend a visit to the Hermitage of Santa Caterina da Stresa not only because it is interesting to see but also because the boat ride to reach it is really pleasant.

4. Mottarone

There are more reasons why you should visit Mottarone: a beautiful view, good food, a lot of fun and nature. (Mottarone Stresa)

5. Pallavicino Park

The Pallavicino Park is located at the end of Stresa and it is not necessary to take a boat to reach it. The convenience of the Pallavicino Park for those traveling by car is that it has a large parking lot right in front of the entrance.

The Pallavicino park is famous for the variety of animals and plants that you find inside. Some animals are kept in cages, others in enclosures, and others are free. The great variety of animals that you can admire at Pallavicino Park make it an educational place suitable for children. However, even adults can enjoy a nice walk in the park.

Pallavicino Park is a suitable place for young and old. For adults, we have an area with a bar right in front of the beautiful gardens enriched with arches and flowers of all kinds, for the little ones we have play areas. During the high season, a train is usually set up to transport tourists from the Stresa lakefront to the park.
