When searching for a place to study Italian at, I discovered the picturesque Ligurian town Sestri Levante. The town is overshadowed by known nearby sites such as the Cinque Terre or Portofino but is in no way inferior to them. Especially its colorful old town located on a peninsula, with the Bay of Silence on one side and the Fairy Tale Bay on the other side, make this place so particular.
t’s half time on our road trip which brings us to one of the most magnificent towns of the Tuscany: Siena. The town is most famous for its medieval and renaissance architecture as well as interesting museums.

Our plan was to visit the two charming towns Montefiascone and Bolsensa at the lake Bolsena, a lake of volcanic origin. By accident, we stepped into one of the most important holy festivities the “Corpus Domini” also called “Infiorata”. In both towns the locals decorated their streets with long flower carpets in which later a religious procession took place. It was absolutely fascinating with how much passionate work the inhabitants are preparing and celebrating this christian solemnity.
The first sight we visit on our road trip is Tarquinia, a town of great importance and history regarding the civilization of Italy. Our next trip brings us to the mystical park of the monsters in Bomarzo, where a huge garden with grotesque but fascinating statues is awaiting us.
