Before travelling to Favignana, most of our friends advised us to be careful about choosing where to eat in Favignana since we could easily bump into tourists traps. In fact, while walking down the streets, we noticed that there were quite a few touristic spots.
My husband, who is very picky about eating out, always does research by consulting Italian Restaurant Guides beforehand. He relies specially on Guida del Gambero Rosso , Osterie d’Italia di Slow Food , and Ristoranti d’Italia dell’Espresso. To complete his homework, he further reads reviews on Tripadvisor.
Being a small island, Favignana is very easy to get around by scooter or bike. In fact, most people you come across in the island either are riding scooters or bikes. Another option is renting a boat, but we refrained from doing so because we were only staying for three days. Had we had a week in Favignana, we would have definitely rented a boat. The best way to discover Italian seacoast is by boat. Being able to take a bath while admiring the Mediterranean coast from the sea is an experience worthwhile trying.
“When I am an old man and live by the sea, will all your thoughts fly to me? When I’m far away from the places we’ve known, will all your love bring me home?”
That was the chorus of the song “Fly to me” by my favorite British band – Keane (Fly to me – Keane). That haunting, beautifully written song I was listening upon my arrival by ferry to Favignana was just perfect to describe my feelings throughout my journey in this wonderful island.
I love Rome’s geographic position: right in the center of the Italian Peninsula. Drive 170 miles south and you arrive on the Amalfi Coast. Drive 100 miles north and you are in Maremma, a wonderful area in the southernmost part of Tuscany.
Trevignano is a beautiful village surrounding Bracciano Lake. It is located approximately 35 kilometers North of Rome.
Trevignano is one of the three villages surrounding Bracciano Lake (the other two are Bracciano and Anguillara).
One of the things I love from Trevignano is the walking trail along the peaceful banks of the lake, where you walk by the nature and small cafés.
