Places to Visit in Italy 2 Weeks with John VLOG 2/2

Places to Visit in Italy: 2 Weeks with John is part TWO of TourRadar’s Italian adventure, in partnership with Insight Vacations. Heading to Italy soon? Looking for some inspiration? Just really, really love pasta? Join John and TourRadar on part two of his 2-week whirlwind tour of Italy. If you watched part one of John’s adventure, and you’re still curious about what an Italian tour looks like, stick around and let us answer all your questions and more.

Movie fan? Take in the picture-perfect rolling hills and gorgeous estates of Tuscany - including the villa used in the film Under the Tuscan Sun! Get swept up in the Italian way of life, from winding country roads, to charming cafes, to grand, historic architecture. Take in iconic structures like Torre del Mangia, the tower rising from Siena’s town square, and the Florence Cathedral’s legendary red dome. You’ll find art you’ve only read about, like Michelangelo’s David, and enjoy food you’ve only dreamed of, like authentic Italian gelato.

Follow John to Cinque Terre, or “five towns,” for some of the most beautiful views in the world. Boat rides and beaches and sunshine, oh my! Of course, he doesn’t stand still for too long - not when there’s more of Italy to explore! Fans of cars and art alike will be struck speechless by the sights at the Mustang Museum, showcasing one of Italy’s most iconic exports. From there, it’s straight to Parma, for a taste of some of the best cheese Italy has to offer, and Verona, to pay a visit to the balcony made famous by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

To top it all off, a trip to Venice is a must for any tour of Italy. Enjoy the blue canals, colourful masks, and a demonstration of Venetian glass-blowing. You may never be able to see all of the amazing things Italy has to offer, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try!

Now that John’s tour is over, don’t you think it’s your turn?

Portofino, Rapallo & Santa Margherita, Italy - The Italian Riviera (Liguria)

Portofino, Rapallo & Santa Margherita - The Italian Riviera (Liguria)
#Portofino is a charming sea village on the Italian Riviera circumscribed by the green of the Natural Regional Park and Marine Reserve. This splendid sea resort with its lux, Mediterranean personality, also boasts an ancient marine culture. The area around Portofino is a protected park.
The little streets leading up from the harbour can be explored in very little time. As well as expensive boutiques, there are cheaper souvenir shops and also general stores where you could put together a picnic if you're planning on a walk. Via Roma leads upwards from the harbour, and is the busiest street, with a range of shops, the Portofino Tourist Information Office and the Post Office.
The pretty Piazzetta by the harbour is lined with cafe and restaurant tables, a lovely place to relax with a drink and watch the boats.
Wandering the waterfront and the lanes, you'll find yachting boutiques, jewellers and art galleries.......
#Rapallo was originally a traditional harbour town, and is now the largest and most important seaside resort on the Mediterranean coast in north-west Italy. It is not far from Portofino and with its range of hotels, Rapallo makes a good base for exploring the coast. Bigger and busier than its neighbours, and a little less expensive. Rapallo is convenient for travellers as it is also nearer the autostrada and has more 'stopping' train services......
#Santa Margherita Ligure is that wonderfully old-fashioned kind of Riviera resort where palm fronds wave along the esplanade and is also well placed to explore local highlights such as Portofino. The seafront is the main attraction at Santa Margherita Ligure, with its beach, lively harbour and promenade, and is very picturesque with palm trees, grand buildings and brightly coloured houses immediately behind the seafront.There are two quite extensive areas of beach in the centre of the town, hence its popularity as a base for visitors exploring the region.....

Exploring the NUDE BEACH of St. Barth's! (MJ Sailing - EP 68)

It turns out you don't need a lot of money to be able to enjoy St. Barth's. You just need a scooter to take full advantage of all its beaches.

Having spent much of our time centered in Gustavia, we wanted to see what else the tropical paradise of St. Barthelemy had to offer. And prior to this, when we asked other travelers what there was to see and do on the island, their answer was always 'So and so beach'...and of course the airport.

Heading out in the morning we had a list of beaches to tackle, although really the main goal was just to drive and stop when something looked good. And it turns out...a lot of the beaches looked pretty good!

First was Anse de Colombier, which was a great hike leading to a beach and anchorage that left us drooling...and then back on the bike to Anse de Lorient which was fairly empty and had a laid back vibe.

Anse Marechal was the next stop for us...a popular beach with the kiteboarders. From the air, it was a spectacular view. Our fourth beach for the day we knew we needed to make a visit to. Anse de Grande Saline, or the nude beach. In French islands, all the beaches are topless, but usually they have one or two nude beaches also. And well....we kind of wanted the chance to go skinny dipping without getting a fine. The water here was amazing and we could have stayed all day.

There was a late lunch at JoJo's Burger Shack before watching the planes come in to land at the airport...the 3rd most dangerous in the world. And then and visit to our last beach of the day...Govuneuers Harbour.

Saint Barthelemy, you have really stolen our hearts.

Cheers from St. Barth's!

Thank you SO MUCH to our Patrons. These amazing supporters help keep us on the boat, our camera equipment up to date, and the videos coming. Without our patrons, these videos would not be possible.
