My Italy Top Tips, Issue January 2019 - Mamma Mia Italy is here
January 28, 2019

I hope you are having a wonderful 2019 - this first month seems to have whizzed by at record speed. Probably that's just me getting older :-(

What have we go to start off the year?

Well, we've a story of walking in Capri.

Then we head to Burano, bright and early one morning, to discover the wonderful secrets and fascinating characters who make this tiny island so special.

We've a name change too and I'll explain the reasons behind it.

A Smaller & Brighter Venice

Maria and I always head out to Burano early, the earlier the better. It's then that you get to see the real Burano and meet the local characters.

Oh, the people we've met on this little island, the stories we've heard. They'll stay with us for ever.

Join us on a trip to meet a few locals and enjoy the pleasures of Burano.

A Walk in Capri

The best way to really discover the Isle of Capri is to walk.

You'll find that once you get away from the main tourists sights you're often all alone with just your thoughts, spectacular scenery and the occasional goat.

Lace up those walking shoes and let's go.


We used to have a website called Maria decided that a name change was in order.

Nobody could remember that long name and our website was no longer about Venice and the Veneto only. We now include all of Italy.

Also, our Facebook page was called ItalyMammaMia. So we changed the name. I do hope you like it :-)

P.S. If you want access to all our websites these are the ones to bookmark:

Next month we've a trip to Europe's Capital of Culture and a cure for the blues.

Andrew & Maria
