    Default My city on Travel Channel - Ancona, Italy

    Tonight I saw my city, Ancona, and my Region, Le Marche, with their beautiful sea!!It's very funny to hear Italian people who speak English on tv..above all people with my same inflection (In Italy there are 20 Regions, each with an own dialect and inflection, very different from the other ones). And it's funny hear the Americans speak Italian.

    A moment of homesickness

    My family is of Irish decent, and I still have lots of extended family in Ireland, and at the last family reunion I got a kick out of the Irish accents, and the different inflections. My great uncle I guess it would be was explaining to me how every county in Ireland has its own inflection and how you can easily tell a Dublineer from, for example a Southern Irish Kerry County citizen (most of my family is in Kerry County). At first i though he was joking but after some practice i did start to notice the difference.

    I can see why you're feeling homesick. Ancona is a beautiful place.



    Mamma mia!

    Looks like a nice town and it has a shade of Miami Beach qualities.

    Would like to make the Adriatic Coast one day, on both sides.

    I'm biased and more partial to Messina's Coast. It was the birth place of my father and where Scylla & Charybdis play

    Hope you make it one day.

    We didn't stay in Kerry. We started from Galway in the morning and drove through the picturesque " Ring " and settled in Tralee that night, which was boring. If I had to do it again, I would of liked to spend time in County Kerry as I hear Kilarney is Ireland's party place.

    Look at that beach! I ADORE Italy. It is my favorite country to visit. I love Venice, Verona and Rome especially.

    Thank you Gus!This video is a beautiful surprise. I never seen it. Here Ancona, as Blackford Oakes said, is almost (!!!) like Miami Beach but it is only an area of my city. Really, my favourite beach in Ancona is called Portonovo and it is at the foot of Conero Mountain. This contrast beach-mountain takes your breath away.

    I'm happy that someone visited my region. Usually, the tourist goes to the most famous cities, as Rome, Florence e Venezia (to see at least one time in own life) but any italian area is wonderful.
    I spent many summer holidays in Puglia. Puglia's people are very friendly. Moltobene, I suggest you to visit Puglia, not only Gargano in the Nord but also the southest area, called Salento. There, ancient italian traditions are still alive and it is full of fun and people, above all in August.

    In italy also the words are different from region to region. If a Puglia's guy speaks the Puglia dialect I don't understand him. But the Marche-Puglia distance is the same than Orlando-Miami.
    Maybe, this is why mine isn't an united country . The last elections are an another example

    In Italy we use the extra virgin olive oil mainly. It contains more good fatty acids than simple olive oil.
    I'm very lucky because my dad has many olive trees, so I can eat home made olive oil. Here, I bought Carapelli. It's a good and famous brand in Italy. When dad's oil ends I use this one in Italy too.

    The most popular St Joseph's Day event in this country is when the Swallows return to San Juan Capistrano. For whatever reason, they haven't been exactly returning on 19 March the last few years.

    Yes, I grew up in Rhode Island (the state where moltobene is located), and Saint Joseph’s Day was a big deal.
    Zeppoles are the featured treat.
