When you visit Bardonecchia (pronounced bar-doh-neck-eeya), you’ll be a stone’s throw away from France. The difference between Bardonecchia and Susa lies in the fact that Bardonecchia is in the mountains, and not a valley.

Activities in Rome With Kids
** This post contains affiliate links. All opinions are our own. You should plan to visit Rome with kids. For years, we have listed Rome as one of our favorite cities in the world, and we were excited to finally experience it with our kids. Rome may be the most important city in the history of the world. After accounting for the history of religion, art, politics, architecture, and its impact on our world today, it has to be considered. Here’s one fun fact our family learned during our week in Rome: it was the first city to reach a population of 1 million people. Then, a staggering 1,943 years later, a second city (London) passed the milestone. This is just one example of the fascinating history that we learned from Tiffany, our LivTours guide.

My Exploitative and Awkward Couchsurfing Stories
Most people genuinely enjoy helping travelers see the world, but there are many that will take advantage of your situation as a Couchsurfer. The notes of these two experiences with Couchsurfing weren’t exactly the same as the first in Rome, which I wrote about here:
Turin, Italy's Most Renown Museums
Turin is Home to the Second-largest Egyptian Museum in the World. Since Turin is Italy’s most regal city, you’ll find there are plenty of enchanting, well-preserved museums scattered around town. Not only will you find museums featuring historic cultural gems, you’ll also find modern gyms dedicated to art, sports (especially soccer — if you’re a Juventus fan, you’ve got to visit Turin!) and cinema.
Underrated Italian Museums to Visit
If Italian history excites you, you’ve come to the right place. While there are plenty of historical sites in other more heavily-trafficked cities like Rome and Florence, Turin sets itself apart in its diversity of museum types and expansive collections (the Egyptian Museum, for example, takes three days to see it all according to the Torinesi).

Turin: Italy's Underappreciated City You've Got to Visit
Is Turin, Italy Worth Visiting? Disclaimer: This story includes affiliate links. If you purchase my book through the links, I make a few extra cents). When planning an Italian getaway, many first think of Rome, Venice, and Florence. And naturally so. These destinations are classics!

Visiting Venice, Italy in Memory of Our Son
“Travel has a way of stretching the mind.” ~ Ralph Crawshaw. Our first international trip was to Italy. It was part of my grieving process. Ever since my forever 20-year-old angel was a child and first saw Venice in a book, he became fascinated with “the streets of water,” as he called them. About three months before my son died, we watched a documentary about Venice. He was in awe of Venice and said it was magical, “you’ll see Mom, one of these days I’m going to visit Venice.” Unfortunately, that day never came. During my grieving process, I opted to do for my son what he wanted to do but didn’t get to. One of those things was traveling to Venice.
Turin, the Italian Town that Captivated Our Hearts
Turin or Torino in Italian is a city in northern Italy and one of the loveliest towns we have visited. It is the capital city of Piedmont with a population of 2.278 million, according to the 2021 census. Housing Anywhere proclaimed Turin as the third best city in Italy and quite popular amongst ex-pats because of its low-cost living. It is also one of the largest cities in Italy. We had never heard of Turin before. Therefore, when we built our itinerary through various countries in Europe, we thought it would be a great place for a pit stop. It is not a common town to visit, but it has its charm and interesting spots such as the spire of the Mole Antonelliana, piazza’s, churches, café, opera houses, art galleries, palaces, theaters, and baroque architecture that line Turin’s streets.
Positano, Italy Travel Vlog
Last year, Nate and I went to the Amalfi coast on our honeymoon in italy, and during our time there, we took a day trip to Positano, probably the most iconic/well known town on the Amalfi Coast.

If you dream of visiting Positano Italy or the Amalfi Coast in general, and are on a budget, please make sure you check out my other videos from this trip as my husband and I had an incredible time without breaking the bank.
