Food Market

Food Market
There are few food markets in the city: Rynek Wielkopolski, Jeżycki, Wildecki, Plac Bernardyński and few others. A common characteristics is their names impossible to pronounce.

Writing about home city is challenging. It’s very difficult to find the right perspective.

Urbino: Palazzo Ducale

Urbino: Palazzo Ducale
This is the last post from Marche. But before we’ll say ‘good buy’ to her let me show you the real pearl of renaissance architecture: Palazzo Ducale.

Urbino: a UNESCO treasure

Urbino: a UNESCO treasure
Before I went to Marche I knew the history of Urbino and that I knew I definitely wanted to visit it.

Although Galleria Uffizi was a disappointment I was enthusiastic about my visit in Urbino. After all, not every day you visit the city pictured over five hundred years ... Read more

Urbino Gallery

Urbino Gallery
Urbino is a wonder! True: Italy is full of wonders, all sorts of them. Architecture, local celebrations, history, art … Italy has it all.

For me three best things are: its size, Palazzo Ducale and vibrant social life after sunset. It is hilly which makes the city very attractive and it also makes panorama seen ... Read more

My stay in Marche was rich in activities. My hosts made sure I won’t get bored.

It is a local initiative to combine touristic information with promotion of local products. From the outside it looks like an ordinary shop but when you ... Read more

Wine tasting: Cantina TerraCruda
I had a fabulous time at Cantina TerraCruda! Seriously! Even though I was tasting wines at 9:30 a.m. and felt dizzy after 8th glass! OK, let’s start from the beginning: I asked my hosts from Marche Holiday about a good local winery and they told me about TerraCruda in Fratterosa. And they were right about this choice, by all means! Location Fratterosa is beautiful! A very small village, in the middle of vineyards and gentle ... Read more
