    What's the most underrated destination in your opinion?

    Naples is, of course! As far as Italian cities go, Naples is not typically a tourist’s first choice. When visitors do make their way south to the Campania region, there is so much here that is vying for their attention: Sorrento and the famed Amalfi Coast; Capri, Ischia and Procida; Vesuvius and the Pompeii sites. Yet as chaotic and confounding as it may be, Naples has a charm that is uniquely it’s own and it has so much to offer the intrepid traveler. Naples is one destination that shouldn’t be overlooked!

    What's your favorite mode of transportation? Why?

    I’d rather walk than drive or take a train than a plane. I also like traveling by boat, be it a ferry, cruise or otherwise! All quasi-slow modes of travel, they lift me up instead of beating me down and yes, they give me time to stop and smell the roses and chat to the locals too!!!

    Do you prefer traveling alone or with a companion? Why?

    My husband is my traveling companion and there’s no one else I’d rather travel with! It’s always nice to have another person to share the experience with, however, three or more is a crowd. We much prefer exploring on our own to traveling in big groups.

    Traveling is not about what you see, it’s about what you experience.
