Trip Reviews by Host Ciao

This is a multi-part trip report of my two months in Italy. This first report is on Venice. Look for the links at the end of the report to see my adventures in other cities. I am in Venice. The...
Ciao, If you seem to be getting a hint of garlic with this, you probably are not wrong. It was supper! I found a trattoria near the central market and near where I had eaten before and read a menu...
Bologna to me means mortadella, my favorite cold cut. At home I figure it can only be a special treat; here, which is its home, I’ll indulge all I want. Mortadella sandwich last night and this...
Train ride from Bologna was fine except over an hour late getting to Naples. Actually half an hour late or more getting to Bologna--nasty weather in the north and train was from Turin. My favorite...
I am in Rome, arrived yesterday but spent an hour on computer deleting four days' worth of stuff because the computer at the hotel in Naples was broken. Yesterday in Rome I rested--really! Today I...
Indeed Buon Natale to all! And even though it’s almost 60 here it must be Christmas. I saw Santa out jogging about 9 am. He had evidently already run off most of the cookies from around the...
Buon Anno Nuovo! Its New Year Eve here and I'm spending it in the usual way--staying home! Rome is very crowded almost more crowded than at Christmas. The hotel is full and I’m not the first one...
Eating Outside: In Bologna I was at an outdoor seating area eating lunch (more on outdoor seating in a bit) and next to me was a couple with, I think a miniature dachshund (spelling?). The dog was...
Return to Rome Reflections Part 3 & 4 Rome Wrap-up After my last report on December 24, I spent part of the afternoon in the hotel reading and finally went out around 5 p.m. to wander around and...
Return to Rome Reflections Week 1 and 2 Part 3 It snowed in Rome today! And as I had decided to do, I headed to the Pantheon to see it come into the building. Unfortunately it melted by the time...
Part 1 Sunday arrived around 11 and checked in. Out to walk, the sky was blue. By Pantheon it was raining, no umbrella! Luckily not too hard. In Pantheon I would have like heavier rain to see it...
When I read about people canceling trips to New York, all I could think of is that if I did not already have plans for a long, longed-for trip to Rome, I would be planning a return trip to NYC,...
Previous: A "Revolutionary" Journey Part III (New York City) I never would have believed that the streets of New York City could be so empty! I had an 8 a.m. train and wanted to arrive at Penn...
Previous: A "Revolutionary" Journey Part II (Washington D.C. & Philadelphia) On Saturday November 27, I took a taxi to the 30th Street Station in Philadelphia to catch my train to New York City....
Previous: A "Revolutionary" Journey (Williamsburg & Washington D.C.) Revolutionary Journey Part II My Sunday in Washington was busy with lots I wanted to cover. I had made a 9 a.m. reservation...
While I must admit my first plan had nothing to do with the Revolutionary War or most of the big changes or new ideas I came up with or found, I think that this title might just fit. My first thought...
Sicily--Two Weeks, Two Tours The island is beautiful. I enjoyed wandering in Palermo for two days. The on and off bus tour was very tiring, but did see a lot and hear a lot of interesting info....
