An Italian “Bucket List”: #48

I’m often asked what I think are the “must-dos” for lovers of Italy, so I’ll be counting down 50 items on an Italian “Bucket List” – please tell me what’s on yours!

48. Swim in Porto Venere.

Unknown-5A stunning coastal town in Liguria, Porto Venere is aptly named after Venus, the goddess of love. I went for a dip there a decade ago, and can still picture the impossibly gorgeous surroundings reflected onto the crystalline waters. Pack your swim gear – and be sure to check out Byron’s Grotto, named after the famous English Romantic poet who used to meditate there.
