Food and shops

Our friend Tara and her colleagues have a Christmas Shopping List for you. You can find them in Viareggio: 

Hello, friends and customers.

This year we have such a wonderful and festive selection of holiday items!  You can view the entire range on our website.  

We have added more advent calendars so there is something for everyone.

There is a calendar from Quality Street and another with Cadbury Heroes.  

Have a look at the ones from the English Tea Shop, where each day of December brings you a different organic tea. 


Happy holidays!

La Spezia International Jazz Festival

From 8th-25th July there will be a series of incredibly talented musicians who are coming to perform in and around La Spezia. The venues are photogenic in themselves but the music will ricochet around your brain even if you know nothing about the genre. Please send us any reviews of the concerts you see. 

For names and dates here's the link to their very impressive website

here's a link that explains it all in Italian
