Hi!

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


We are a family, living in Milan, who shares a passion for outdoor and adventure travel. Me (Alessandra) and Ruggiero are very nearly 40-year old but enthusiastic as teenage guys. We love being in the unspoilt nature and what rhymes with adventure. Off the beaten tracks, there you can mostly find us.

I started blogging in 2012 and never stopped. I Viaggi dei Rospi (The Toads’ Trips) is our first website, entirely dedicated to outdoor travel.

Tips 4 Italian Trips is a never-ending story about our beautiful country and is dedicated to whoever wants to discover Italy with kids. Marvellous landscapes, art, food, nature and lovely people. We will tell you all about it! We will show you where we have been, what activities we have done, which facilities are best equipped for families.

Don’t have kids?  Don’t worry, in the section dedicated to Mum and Dad there are many posts to help you plan and experience travel as well.

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

Are you ready to explore Italy with your family?
Then, jump on board and let’s travel together!
