I thought I should probably tell you all about my last trip to Bari, Italy. I always get carried away with stuff and forget to actually do a blog post on my trips. I think it’s quite nice to hear opinions from people who travel and maybe discover new places.
Now I may tend to do the article from a very personal point of view, so don’t be scared lol.
As you all probably know, I went there for my 27th birthday. I didn’t want to stay in a hotel, first off because they were so expensive and I didn’t see the reason why we should spend a lot of money over there because, let’s face it, it’s not an exotic island or something. For me, all the cites in Europe are nice, but a bit too pricey for what they have to offer, especially hors season.
I was very happy to find a really nice place via Airbnb, def nicer than one of the hotels I was looking at.
The ceiling art was amazing and I’m so happy to have discovered such a fab setting, so close to the city centre and of course, close to the beach. You can always check Valeria’s listing here.
Even though it was November, we were in luck to catch 19C in temperature. Really nice weather compared to what was going on in Brussels.
We visited the city centre with all its beautiful landmarks and just went by foot into the small streets around that give you the impression to be in an old Italian movie.
I would suggest just walking around and discover rather than going where Google points you to. You cannot get lost.
Coming from Belgium, I strolled in stores like Stradivarius and of course, my fave, Sephora. We don’t have it here in Belgium, so I took advantage of some free hours to have a look at what Bari has to offer. The streets are nice and clean and you have tons of cafes around where you can stop and envoy a hot chocolate ( sorry, I don’t drink coffee 😀 )
Another fashionable find was the Tata shoe store. Really nice stuff for you fashionistas out there!
I also enjoyed a half an hour just laying in the beautiful sun ( ok, not from this pic obviously), in a park nearby. I didn’t visit all of Bari, but I really am at the age where I want to really enjoy my vacation rather than do 1000 activities and come back home more tired than I left.
Italy remains one of my fave countries and I hope to visit it again.
Hy guys! So I’m back home after a wonderful weekend in Italy! This time I went to explore new landscapes and see Italy’s view of the Mediterranean sea, and of course do a little shopping as well – we all know Italian shoes are just to die for! The first day I got there (Friday), I went to visit the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa in Piazza Dei Miracoli!
After my visit to Pisa, I continued to search for my hotel in Livorno! I stayed in a nice hotel, in the centre of the city … Livorno is a quiet town and really clean! It holds very nice tourist attractions like the monument Quattro Mori.
The second day I went to the beach. A really beautiful beach, Spiaggia Bianca, that has this really particular water...
I never saw a beach that has such lovely colours!
I just love taking pictures..especially when I find so eye-catching landscapes! Italy is so great and I’m looking forward to exploring more of it .. Love the pizza too 🙂 !
So, in the outfit department, this is what I pulled out for my visit for the Leaning Tower of Pisa
