I’m not sure what’s more fascinating here....my tiny vintage iPhone? Or the ancient ruined Roman settlement of Herculaneum that I’m attempting to photograph with said vintage iPhone? 🤔jk!😉 We don’t hear much about Herculaneum in the states when we’re taught about Pompeii and the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD (thank you google;)), but Herculaneum was actually preserved far better than Pompeii when it was overtaken by the volcano, so even food items and surviving wooden structures were revealed when excavations began. Herculaneum was a small settlement compared to the bustling neighboring city of Pompeii, but it was a wealthier population, so the surviving artwork is just INNNSAAANE YALL! 🙌🏼 🎨 If you find yourself in this neck of the woods, definitely don’t skip visiting Herculaneum (Ercolano)🙅🏼♀️ It’s less crowded than Pompeii, so take @ricksteveseurope advice and head here early, grab lunch, then finish your day getting lost in the maze of the once busy streets of Pompeii. Pompeii is less crowded in the afternoon (and thankfully less hot later in the day during the summer months☀️🔥), so you’ll often feel like you have the place to yourself, which is pretty awesome if you ask me🤷🏼♀️ #ercolano#herculaneum#pompeii#romanruins
Ahhh, Venezia...take me back!! This is the stunning Piazza San Marco. Fun fact: Coffee culture in Italy started in Venice in the 1570's. Coffee beans from Istanbul (known as Constantinople at the time) were imported to Venice first, then the popularity spread throughout the rest of the country. And now I'm craving a proper Italian cafe latte... 😋☕🇮🇹 #therenowntraveller#ilovevenezia
This is a detail from my painting “Positano on the Amalfi Coast”.⠀
Positano is a stunning hill town overlooking the Mediterranean and one of its landmarks is this famous dome of Chiesa Santa Maria dell’Assunta. Adorned with colorful majolica tiles, it brilliantly reflects the sunshine!⠀

Pisa was one of Italy’s maritime republics - along with Genoa, Amalfi and Venice - and had a large Mediterranean merchant fleet and navy. Historical records indicate that Pisa was founded on the water, but alluvial sediments from the Arno and Serchio rivers have pushed the shore west, so that the city is now located 6 miles (9.7 kilometers) inland. Of course Pisa is most famous for the “Leaning Tower”, otherwise known as the Campanile of Pisa Cathedral. The tower was built in the 12th century and soon began to tilt, due to an unstable foundation.
Grotte di Pertosa ✨ .
(Re)discovered in 1932, the Grotte di Pertosa-Auletta date back 35 million years. Used by the Greeks and Romans as places of worship, the caves burrow for some 2500m, with long underground passages and lofty grottoes filled with marvellous rock formations and luminous crystals.
Итальянский фонтанчик ⛲️
Воду можно пить спокойно.
В Италии 🇮🇹 одна из лучших систем очистки воды.
Поэтому бутилированную воду можно не покупать. Неплохая экономия, учитывая, что в Италии все дорого :)
