Lerici, porto

listening to the sound of wind whistling through the wires and masts of boats

Not only wine and not only vineyards.

In the Chianti area you can spend a disgustingly romantic weekend between vigneti and castelli

Here’s the Castello di Brolio

Castello di Spaltenna

Castello di Meleto

#358 I miss Italian hiking trails – 3

L’anello del Rinascimento (‘Ring of the Renaissance or Renaissance Ring’) 

is a hiking or biking trail, longer than 170 km, around the city of Firenze.

The path skirts fields and woods, castles, ancient churches, and monasteries

#355 I miss vigneti – 1

Italian wineyards. This time not the ones from Tuscany, but from Oltrepò Pavese (West Lombardy)

Enjoy vigneti and castles.

#351 I miss cibo da spiaggia – 2

Pranzo al sacco, literally ‘lunch in the bag’ is a must of any day-at-the-beach in Italy.

Prosciutto e melone, for many people is the real taste of summer

but also anguria

of course a good slice of focaccia,

one or more panini with prosciutto cotto

Pane al pomodoro is a big classic in Tuscany

Pesche noci

and albicocche

good for your abbronzatura as well!
