The Best of Split, Croatia

A city of marble along the sunny Dalmatian Coast, Split is widely-known for it’s beauty and rich history. Filled with adventure, shopping, gorgeous views and delectable cuisine, Split should be high on every travelers bucket list. Although it’s true that there’s more to see in Split in the summer months, many of the city’s best…

The best of Florence

Florence is an extraordinary city filled with culture, history, delicious cuisine and the best leather products in all of Europe…no wonder it’s one of Italy’s (and Europe’s) most-visited destinations and the hub of the Tuscan region. Although I’m a Rome-grown girl at heart, I had the opportunity to live and work in Florence for a…

A weekend in Paris

Ah, Paris.  Or, Parigi, as the Italians say.  Even the 40 degrees and rainy weather couldn’t destroy this city’s magical charm.  I visited Paris for the first time during my semester abroad, in the Spring of 2017. It was rainy and magical then too. This year, I returned to Paris as somewhat of a “goodbye…

A 3-day Krakow itinerary

Poland, specifically Krakow, has been on my bucket list forever! A few months ago, I found a cheap Ryanair flight flying Pisa to Krakow and, since I will (sadly) be leaving Europe soon, I jumped at the chance to spend a weekend in a new city. I had three full days in Krakow, so naturally…

The best Bavarian restaurants in Munich

Through my job with Bus2alps, I have been lucky enough to spend quite a bit of time in Munich during the Fruhlingsfest and Oktoberfest seasons. During that time, I’ve made it my mission to find and eat at the best and most traditional Bavarian restaurants in Munich. German food is not for everyone, it’s very…

Your Guide to Interlaken, Switzerland

Although definitely not a budget destination, Interlaken, Switzerland remains one of the most stunning places I’ve been lucky enough to visit. A tiny, Swiss town surrounded on all sides by towering mountains and sparkling blue lakes, Interlaken is Europe’s extreme sport capital and home to every outdoor activity you could possibly imagine. If you are…

How to see Barcelona in a weekend

Barcelona was the first city I ever visited in Spain and, years later, it remains my favorite. I went for the first time back in 2017 for study abroad spring break and was lucky enough to return this past Spring. March is the perfect time to visit Barcelona, there are less tourists than the summer…

A day trip to Česky Krumlov

In the hectic summer months in central Europe, sometimes the best travel destinations are the ones off the beaten path. Česky Krumlov is one of the Czech Republic’s hidden gems and, located less than three hours from Prague, is the perfect escape away from the bustling city. Although it’s a bit of a trek for…

48 Hours in Budapest

The best part of living in Italy is being able to book spontaneous European vacations without breaking the bank. A few weeks ago, I had a couple days free and decided to hop on Skyscanner.com and browse the cheap flights (a very dangerous hobby btw). As luck would have it, flights from Milan to Budapest were stupid…

Two weeks in München

Although Munich is a fantastic city to visit any time of the year, the city truly flourishes during festival season. Oktoberfest, late-September through early-October, and Fruhlingsfest, late-April through early-May, are the ideal times to visit Munich. So pack up your dirndl (or lederhosen) and get ready to Prost! However, as much fun as the festivals […]
