About us

Hi!

Do you want to know a bit more about your new Italian on-line friends? Then, here we are Ruggiero, Alessandra, Federico & Giacomo: 


An Italian family who has been traveling a lot around Italy and all over the world!

Tips 4 Italian Trips is an everending story about our beautiful country and is dedicated to whomever wants to discover Italy with kids. Marvelous landscapes, art, food, nature and wonderful people. We will tell you all about it! We will show you where we have been, what activities we have done, which facilties are best equipped for families.

The blog was launched thanks to the effort of two others Italians moms, travelers and friends – Valentina Cappio and Monica Facchini  – who then left the team in order to achieve other personal goals and we decided to continue this journey discovering Italy.
This is my ID:

Name: Alessandra Granata
Age: 38 years old, enthusiastic as a teenage girl
Children: 2
Passions: Nature above all!! Mountains, desert and sea. The scent of fresh snow, crackling under snowshoes and poles. All activities played in the natural elements: bike, motorbike and running, swimming and hiking as relax for the body. Doing Reiki with a lightened candle to restore the soul. Music, from Vivaldi to Coldplay. But on top of these…laughing, singing and dancing just the 3 of us, simply at home or all over the world.
Favourite colour: the blue “Azzurri” of the Italian national team, I used to wear
Favourite places: The countryside of Crema, where our Family “was born” and belongs to. Schiling and Fiemme Valley up in the Dolomites, exploring the magic of a white silence. The amazing “Cinque Terre” sea, where the quite hills face the enchanted sea. The Australian outback, a place where souls have no borders. And in our future? Alaska and North Cape are on our bucket list.
Travelling style: Hiking shoes, paths map and a small tent. We love being in the unspoilt nature and what rhymes with adventure. Off the beaten tracks, there you can mostly find us. B&B and unusual accommodation and the more away from crowded routes they are, the best. Actually, travelling by motorbike is the only passion we missed, since our lovely son joined the team…but we dream of travelling around Europe as Federico turns 18 and he would be able to drive a bike himself!
When I grow up, I will: launch my own activity in tourism
Favourite quote: if you don’t prove yourself because afraid of failing, you’ll  fail.
