We woke up the next day to morning sun rays shining into the room. That was what I really loved about staying in Due Gemelli – there’s a balcony for every room, facing the azure waters of the Liguria Coastline. The plan was to spend a day hiking Cinque Terre so we got dressed in our most comfortable hiking attire and packed our bags. We couldn’t manage to book 2 straight nights at any accommodation in Riomaggiore, so we have had to move to a different hotel.

What was supposed to be a 3 hours journey took us 5 hours on this particular day. When we finally arrived in Santa Maria Novella train station, we were extremely tired and hungry. Upon exiting the train, we felt no comfort in being surrounded by a lot of other tourists and locals. I had a quick look at the instructions from our AirBNB host on how to get to the apartment that we’ve booked, and found out that we have had to take… View Post

1 Day Self Guided Scenic Rome Free Walking Tour

Our first day in Rome didn’t turn out well as I fell terribly ill with a pounding migraine and continuous vomiting. Needless to say, we spent most of the first day just resting at the apartment we booked on AirBnB and getting over our jet lag. Thankfully, on the second day…… View Post
