Day 3 is all about Firenze. Firenze is the place I see myself living of the 5 spots I visited in Italy. I don't know if you have ever visited Lisboa but Firenze was like downtown Lisboa for me, not because of the architecture, I assure you it's nothing alike. But it's the feeling I got from it, always moving and incredibly beautiful. You have everything you need, and I don't know about you, but I love that feeling.

Of course the first stop is the Cathedral, you can see it right away, it's unique so take a moment and just really look at it, take your time.
My biggest regret was not going up the Campanile, I am pretty sure this is going to eat me up for the rest of my life, I heard it's insane but I couldn't pay 15€ but if you can, please go!!!!

I don't have any advice of places to eat because in Florence I just stopped at the first thing I saw because I was starving, I don't even remember the name of the place. But of course I remember the spot where I ate my ice cream next... Vecchio, it's a franchise, a very good one, just go. 

Ponte Vecchio is very very very crowded, go there because it is a landmark and all that but if you enjoy your space, choose the bridge next to it, Ponte Santa Trinita, you can see Ponte Vecchio from there and the view is the same.

Make sure you go to Piazzale Michelangelo, look over the city! Stroll the streets of Florence, you will probably find some singers along the way, enjoy the show.

Welcome to part 2, it is time for Venezia. I should start by saying this was my favorite place to visit and you will probably notice by the way I will write this post. 

Imagine all the fairytales you have ever read, imagine a place on earth where all those stories could become true, well you have Venice right there for you. It is a fairytale city, it is magical, it is beautiful, I don't understand how this city even exists and I love it.

I started this day in Piazzale Roma and I'm guessing most of you will start as well, because it is the terminal of buses so if you are not staying in the city centre, you will most likely take a bus to this stop.

My plan for Venice was just getting lost, I knew that I wanted to see Piazza San Marco and every landmark was there or very close to it so I knew I'd have time to wander around. 
Important information for getting lost in Venice: keep in mind there are four bridges and if you intend to walk you should be aware of their locations. If you are using Google Maps turn on the "avoid ferries" option, otherwise you will be sent to a ferry stop.

Well, by the time I found one of the bridges it was time to have lunch, I knew I wanted Dal Moro's Fresh Past To Go, it is an amazing option for about 6-8€. Don't get scared if you see a big line waiting, they are extremely fast at doing their jobs and very friendly. Also be aware of similar places, they adopted the same scheme because it works really well for the original restaurant. When you have your pasta I advice you to sit near a canal and just enjoy the gondolas passing by, you will have fun, I promise. 
I should tell you that I eat really healthy, so of course, after lunch I had to eat an ice cream, because ITALY, people. I couldn't help myself. With that being said, I went to Suso. Long story short: big line, fast as usual, very worthy.

After that we just walked and window shopped (2nd favorite thing to do, 1st is eating ice cream in Italy), took in the amazing views and buildings, stopped by Ponte dei Sospiri, back to Piazza di San Marco and sat by the river. This is the thing about Venice, if you don't want to enter any museums you can just explore and get lost, I recommend it.

For dinner we went to a pizza place called Pizza al Volo where a slice of pizza is 2€ and a large pizza is around 10-12€. In its left side is a very cute café where we just drank some cappuccinos and enjoyed Venice.

Here is the first part of my Italy journey, sadly it did not start well, we lost a bus, we lost the train and last but not least our reservation in the hotel had been cancelled and that's why my pictures are all at night. I can't even describe my feelings at that moment, I got really sad. But fear not, things got better, we ended up staying in a hotel that was 20 minutes from the bus station where we had to be at 6:15am.
Problems aside, if you can walk to places, you definitely should, Milan is perfect for that. The most important landmarks and spots to see are walkable.

For the first night, we went to Chinatown to have dinner, we found Otto in Zomato. I have to be honest, I chose it because I can't resist a vertical garden or anything that looks like it, for a matter of fact. The place is opened until 2am, which is also a plus. You have different kinds of toast to choose, the two we ordered were very good and the service is extremely fast.

After that, we walked (of course) to the galleries and it is so beautiful, I did some window shopping and it is the perfect place for that, Milan is all about fashion and these galleries are full of high-fashion brands so enjoy your time.

I wasn't aware of this but you can see Piazza del Duomo from the galleries, it's just side by side with the cathedral and the Royal Palace. After that just take a walk into Piazza dei Mercanti and maybe stop for an ice cream or just continue your window shopping session.

I hope you liked the first chapter, I know it wasn't much but as you can see, we had some difficulties. The next ones will be better. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Hello everyone, I hope everything is amazing with you. Today and this next week I am going to give you some tips to get the most of Italy for an amazing price. 

On October 3rd, I went from Lisbon to Milan to start my 9 day trip to Italy. It was all made by bus, more specifically Flixbus, which is an amazing company with routes to pretty much all parts of Europe you can imagine and very cheap.

TIPS:

  • Start in Milan because it is in the north of Italy and you can work your way down;
  • Travel by bus or train. The bus system is incredible in Italy, they are always on time and it is extremely efficient. Do buy the tickets previously because you can't buy them on the bus, a few exceptions may apply, usually when it's a transfer between the city centre and the airport;
  • If you don't intend to visit museums, one day is usually enough in the major cities, except Rome. Rome has amazing things in every corner; This way you can visit a lot in a few days, of course it depends on the kind of trip you plan to do;
  • If you do intend to visit museums and you are under 25, you will have discounts in most of them;
  • If you are looking for a relaxed vacation, the Amalfi Coast is the place to go, 5 days is perfect.

This post is just an introduction, I am going to go into specifics in different posts, click down below to the city of your choice:

  • Milano (available 16/10);
  • Venezia (available 17/10);
  • Firenze (available 18/10);
  • Roma (available 19/10);
  • Costiera Amalfitana (available 20/10).
I hope you enjoy the tips and have fun in your trip.

Dress: Stradivarius  Sweater: Mango  Coat: H&M  Backpack: Zara  Shoes: Converse









I love monochromatic looks, I do it all the time with black, in the summer with white so naturally I had to do it with grey. I love this dress because of its details, it's what makes it special. That backpack is just amazing as well.
Hope you like it.

Adoro conjuntos monocromáticos, faço-o imensas vezes com preto. No verão faço com branco portanto era uma questão de tempo fazê-lo com cinzento. 
Adoro este vestido por causa dos detalhes, acho que é o que o faz super giro. A mala é a minha outra paixão.
Espero que tenham gostado.
