What should I buy in Tuscany? What should I bring back home? What should I try during the stay? After a recent, intense discussion on Facebook, I realized that the answers to these questions are not obvious at all, especially for those who first time travel to the land of wine and cypress before departure. Here’s a Tuscan shopping and culinary guidebook. Read, note and pack your suitcases!

Spring in Tuscany – Chianti, San Gimignano, Val’ d’Orcia and Maremma perfect places for May trip.

Tuscany is a extraordinary land stunning richness of art and landscape. Especially beautiful is in the middle of April, when fresh, juicy green cover hills, vines covers with young leaves, red poppies overlay roadside ditches contrasting with the dark green rows of cypress trees, fragrant roses in full bloom, just bathed in a fleeting rain, climb on the old walls soaking up every ray of spring sunshine. Just pull off from still not crowded main roads, follow on gravel, winding roads to get lost among the hills and to admire the wonderful views discovering little known places. Chianti, San Gimignano, Val d’Orcia, Maremma. Isn’t it tempting way to spend a long weekend in Italy? If you wonder that does Tuscany is a good idea for a picnic, this post is for you.

There were two towns Castelmezzano and Piterapertosa spaced from each other little more than a kilometer and separated by a deep ravine of Dolomiti Lucane.

Today, everyone can fly, and experience incredible mixture of fear, excitement and delight of the landscape beauty. See one of the greatest experiences in the history of our Italian trip – Volo dell’Angelo, located in Basilicata, which is one and a half kilometer rope stretched 400 meters above the precipice and being traveled at a speed of 120 km/h.

When the dream come true – my meeting with Il Volo in Warsaw

Each of us has a dream. Those big and small, the real ones, but also those divorced from reality. When most of the last year, I fought for a return to health when I twice was lying in the hospital, and then long weeks I haven’t left my house, I dreamed that one day shake hands and say „thank you” to three young Italians, whose extraordinary talent and beauty music helped me through difficult times. That dream, however, belonged to the category of detached from reality, because I shared it with at least several million people around the world. Until now. I’ll tell you today about my meeting with Il Volo in Warsaw and about how it is when reality exceeds dreams.

Sicily. Levanzo – 25 minutes to another world

I had a beautiful dream today. On a small island I was walking around the little town, the snow-white houses decorated with intense blue shutters emerged straight from the sea and the turquoise waves rocked on their crests colorful boats. Local fishermen, who returned from the morning catch, mending their nets in the harbor, and from the nearby bar was spreading of the aroma of freshly brewed coffee and warm cornetti. My dream, the memory of reality, another world in which I found myself in 25 minutes for less than 9 euros, boarded on a hydrofoil in Trapani. Come and see Levanzo.

Sicily, Wanda and Grzanka, the story without a happy ending

When five years ago, Wanda began a new life in Sicily, she adopted a five-month bitch form a dog shelter in Golenow near Szczecin, and to provide her a beautiful life in the south of Italy, alongside loving family. Life, however, sometimes is perverse, so rolled the fate of the two girls – Wanda returned to Poland, but Grzanka beloveddog stayed in Sicily, under the care of a man who didn’t want her. At any time, the Grzanka may go back to the dog shelter or simply Sicilian street. Wanda asked me to help, and I ask you. Let’s help that little gem to return to the Poland. You do not need the money, because Wanda cover all costs, only the people who love animals and traveling through Italy by car or bus. Because air travel is not an option, low cost airlines don’t carry animals, and in regular lines, weighing aprox. 15 kg dog would go in the luggage compartment, and that’s a very big stress for a pet. Read it, share it, let’s combined our forces to bring back home Grzanka. Because home is wherever your family is.

Sicily. Trapani seeing by heart

Some say third time lucky. Same was with me and Trapani. First time I visited the city in June 2012, and after two hours, a cursory sightseeing with relief I left blistering Centro Storico escaping to a pleasantly cold Erice. The second time, in September 2014 was much shorter and basically limited only to visit the fish market and to buy mussels and quickly run to the apartment with a kitchen in Custonaci to cook. Just when I visited the city for the third time and spent four full days there, deliberately, traversing the same streets, Trapani stole my heart. In this post I’ll show you Trapani seen not only with the eyes, but also – and perhaps most of all – heart, my heart.

Scala – the oldest town on the Amalfi Coast

Almost vertically above Amalfi and not far from Ravello, on the other side of the Dragon Valley, off the beaten track, surrounded by chestnut forests and terraces sloping down towards the sea lemon groves, lies the oldest town of the Amalfi Coast. Scala, which does not reach the mass tourism, offers peace and quiet to explore the numerous monuments in a natural setting, stunning views and long and fascinating history dating back to its beginnings in the fourth century AD. It’s the perfect place to escape from the crowds and bustle of the full season in Amalfi towns situated by the sea.
