Maki 5* Gelateria, Fano – Best Gelato in Italy?

As promised in my last post, I said I would tell you all a bit more about THE MOST AMAZING GELATO.


Theo and I, and his family, took a day trip to a town called Fano, in Umbria. We were going to the beach! However, before leaving, we read online that it was home to a 5 star gelateria – so naturally we had to go. It was Maki Gelateria Artigianale.

From the outside I’ll admit it’s nothing special, though it is on a pretty piazza. But as soon as you go inside…it’s amazing.

Check out some Trip Adviser reviews here if you want some other opinions!

There are so many flavours – some of them REALLY unusual…Beer flavoured ice cream, anyone?

It was delicious. I had 3 scoops, all slightly unusual, yet they all seemed to go so well together. Plus the flavours were so natural – none of the artificial stuff we had tried elsewhere.

I tried beer flavour, something which I think translates to superchocolate (basically like double chocolate x triple chocolate x chocolate explosion) and the last was yoghurt.

I honestly can’t wait to return to Italy just to go back there – Bring on 2017!


Stay tuned for my next post on the wild mountain ponies!


Have you been to Italy and tried some amazing gelato? Where were you and what were the flavours?

Italy in Autumn: Should you go? Definitely.

As promised in my third to last post, here is my full album of  photos from my October/November trip to Italy. We were in Umbria, and went to quite a few different places Рmore on some of them at a later point.

The pictures below include wild mountain horses, 5 star gelato, and of the course the obligatory travel-photo-out-of-the-window-with-the-plane-wings-and-clouds!













Have you been to Italy? (in Autumn?) If so where?

Got any good photos to share?

Travel Blog: I’m going to Italy!

Want to hear all about my next trip? Well search no further…


It’s official guys, I’m going on another trip!

For the second time in just over a year Theo and I are adventuring back to Italy! We leave on the 20th and come back on the 29th (just in time for our friend’s Halloween themed engagement party!).

It’s going to be amazing, and fingers crossed…the perfect temperature for me. (As much as I love it… my Scottish blood can’t handle the heat).

To celebrate… I’ve included a photo from my last trip to show you what there is to look forward to. This is a photo I took at sunset sailing from Ancona to Durress.

Have you ever been to Italy? Do you want to go? (I bet you do!). Want to read a little more about what it’s like there? I suggest this for anyone who wants to visit Italy, and wants to find out more!

So I will be posting about this (with lots of photos of course!) probably at the start of next month.

However there is so much more to look forward to before then…

Edinburgh Oktoberfest is tomorrow, so I will definitely be posting about that ASAP (I’M SO EXCITED – can you tell??).

Have you been to Oktoberfest? If so, where? Let me know in the comments!
