Where to stay in Amalfi Coast

Where to stay in Amalfi Coast 1

Where to stay in Amalfi Coast? That’s a good question! Especially because each city of the Amalfi Coast has its own characteristics. All the Amalfi Coast is beautiful but there are a few factors we should consider before making our choise.

The first factor we can consider is the season. The touristic season finishes at the first weekend of November. The result is that after this weekend many hotels and restaurants are closed. Instead most of the shops are opened till the end of the year. The result is that the worst period of the year to go to the Amalfi Coast is between January and March, before the beginning of the new season.

Some Amalfi Coast Towns are more influenced by the tourist season than others. That’s why our choice of where to stay in Amalfi Coast is different in summer and winter.

Let’s now consider our best choice where to stay in Amalfi Coast in summer.

Where to stay in Amalfi Coast in Summer

The best choice in summer is Positano. It has a very beutiful beach and than you can do many things here. It’s full of hotels restaurant and shops. You can easily get to Capri by boat in about half a hour. From Positano you can easily visit the other Amalfi Coast Towns.

Where to stay in Amalfi Coast in Winter

The best choice in winter is Sorrento. This one of the biggest Amalfi Coast Towns and is the one less affected by the tourist seasons. Also in winter you have more chance to find the restaurants, hotel and other attractions opened.

Where to stay in Amalfi Coast without a car

Where to stay in Amalfi Coast without a car? The Amalfi Coast Towns are well connected by public transportations. In this way it isn’t a big problem to get from one city to another by car. Anyway the trasportation times are longer by bus than by car. So it’s much better to stay in one of the city in the middle of the Amalfi Coast. In this way you can it will not take to long visit the Amalfi Coast towns to the left and to the right.

In the Amalfi Coast there are very beautiful hotels far from the city centers. If you don’t have the car is better to stay in an Amalfi Coast town, in the center. In this way you can go to the restaurants, shops on foot and easily find everything you need.

Mountains or sea?

In the Amalfi Coast there are towns located on the see but other on the mountains. Despite the view from the mountains is beautiful it is not confortable chose towns like Ravello that are not directly on the sea.

Every time you would wanted to go somewhere, you have to come down from the mountain to get to the Amalfi Coast main road to than get to your destination.

Much better to stay in Positano where you have everything you need and if you want to go to Ravello or on the mountain for a path you can go… otherwise you can relax on the beach 😉 …

Why is the Leaning Tower of Pisa leaning? Was the Leaning Tower of Pisa a mistake?

Why is the leaning tower of pisa leaning

Why is the leaning tower of Pisa leaning? – Pisa is a nice city but what makes it unique in the world is its leaning tower. Pisa in fact is very famous for its square and especially for its leaning tower. Everybody visiting Pisa wants to take the picture in front of this special tower and pretend to sustain it with his hand.

The Leaning tower of Pisa is really unique! Do you want to know more about this tower? Why is the leaning tower of Pisa leaning? Is it a problem? What keeps the leaning tower of Pisa from falling?

The leaning tower of Pisa

The leaning tower is composed of a cylindrical stone body surrounded by open galleries with arcades and pillars resting on a bottom shaft, with the bell on top.

Was the leaning tower of Pisa a mistake?

When the leaning tower of Pisa was built, in 1173 nobody made any mistake. Why is the leaning tower of Pisa leaning? However after a while the tower had caught the attention of several artists for its inclination.

Why is the leaning tower of Pisa leaning?

It was discovered that the ground beneath the tower was essentially made of sand and shortly after the inauguration it started to tilt.

This caused an inclination of the tower which is currently inclined by 3.9 degrees.

Why is the leaning tower of pisa leaning was the leaning tower of pisa a mistake

What keeps the leaning tower of Pisa from falling?

The leaning tower of Pisa has not fallen till now thanks to the big work of specialized workers who acted specificallly to prevent its falling.

The current building is the result of time-consuming reconstruction work, mostly to reduce the risk that the tower might collapse as a consequence of its remarkable inclination.

I remember that in the corse of past years the tower was closed to the public for many years. For example it was closed the January 7th 1990 and it opened again 12 years later. Other times I’ve visited the tower while the workers were working upon it.

Why is the Pisa tower so famous?

Apart from its extremely famous inclination that really seems to defy the laws of statics, the Tower of the Cathedral is a very unusual building and one of a kind.

This is true for the high historical and artistic value of its forms and because of its peculiar location, within that vast and equally unique area that is the Piazza dei Miracoli.

Where is it?

The building is located in Piazza dei Miracoli but far from the Cathedral, between the apsidal area and the south-eastern section of the transept of the Cathedral.

This is an unusual location although this is not the only case as it can be found in other complexes in town and in other Italian buildings. However usually a tower was erected near the facade or along one side of the church.

Inside the Leaning Tower

This stone area accommodates a winding staircase with 293 steps leading up to the open galleries, to the bell on top and to the lower mezzanine floors. The inner shaft is closed by a vault with a central hole to let light in.

The lower floor, the six open galleries and the bell divide the tower into eight segments that are called orders.

The lower floor is enriched by a round of blind arcades placed on half columns. Under the arcade there is a diamond-shaped compass inlaid with polychrome marble with a raised rosette in the middle.

The solid wall is interrupted by the openings of some narrow single-lancet windows. Westwards it’s also interrupeted by the only entrance door: a rectangular area framed by a lintel.

Above the lintel there is a crescent-shaped arch with an inlaid archivolt. It rests on two capitals as a continuation of the jambs forming a shrine containing the bust of a 14th-century Virgin with Child.

On the sides of the door there are some friezes decorated with animals and monstrous figures. There are also the unusual figures of some ships frame the commemorative epigraph of the foundation of the building.

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.

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.

food to eat in italy cappuccino

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.

food to eat in italy

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!

best-day-trips-from-milan

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.

food to eat in italy

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.

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.

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.

1 day in Florence

1 day in Florence: morning

Use the morning to walk in the city. You can start by Piazza del Duomo where there is the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore. From there you can go in the Piazza della Signoria.

In this square you’ll see also the David of Michelangelo but pay attention! This is only a copy. The original statue is placed in the Accademia Gallery. The Statue was removed from the square in 1872 to preserve it. If you spend only 1 day in Florence you don’t have enough time to see the original statue. Anyway be aware that this Statue is important not only because is masterpeace work of art but also for its meaning.

The David is a young man who has to fight against a giant. The David was made in fact a few years after the new republic was instituded. This young republic had to fight against giants as it could be the papacy of that time.

Another curiosity is that the David had originally to be placed on the Duomo as one of its decorative statue and not in the square.

After having enjoyed this amazing square we can continue our itinerary of 1 day in Florence.

Go through the streets and find out all the shops where you can buy very cute leather bags and clothes.

The particularity of this bridge is that there are many shops on it. Here there are goldsmiths, silverware and jewelers.

Afternoon

After having visited the city you can continue your day in Florence visiting his main important museum: The Uffizi Gallery. The Uffizi Gallery is big and you have to plan well your time in it.

That’s why I’ve planned it for the aftenoon and not for the morning: the risk is to dedicate too much time to the museum and then, at the end, you don’t have time for all the other monuments you should visit.

In this museum you’ll see artworks of many famous painters and paintings of extraordinay value. So plan well your time and concentrate your attention to what you are more interested in.

At the end of your tour you’ll probably arrive where there is the coffee shop that has a beautiful terrace. The picture below shows what you can see from that terrace.
