Top 5 Travel

When I travel I love meeting locals, discovering regional food and wine and getting off the beaten path! My favourite destinations, hotels, restaurants and travel experiences – in Australia and abroad – are in these Top 5 travel lists.

Venice Rooftops
Italian Hotels - Londra Palace - view


I adore Italy! Venice, Amalfi, Rome and Florence of course, but also lesser-known Emilia-Romagna, Basilicata and the backroads of Lombardy and Sardinia. Let me take you there!

Switzerland - Bernese Alps


I’m blessed to have seen Switzerland through the eyes of my Swiss husband, his family and friends. I love its hearty food, crisp white wines, rich history and breathtaking scenery.

Paris city guide - Covered Passages - Food-Wine-Travel with Roberta Muir


Of course I love Paris, its wine bars, bistros, museums and markets, but I also love exploring the regions from Germanic Alsace, to remote Brittany and the unique Basque country.

Ireland Cliff Coast - Loop Head


Wildly beautiful scenery; superb local produce; great beer, music and pubs; and some of the most hospitable people you’d hope to meet … what’s not to love about Ireland?

Scottish Highlands - North Coast 500


From the windswept Scottish Highlands, to south-west England’s rolling farmland and Wales’ impossibly green valleys, this tiny island offers so much great food, drinks and times.

Sydney City Guide


As much as I love travelling abroad, I adore coming home. Some of the best food, wine and travel experiences I’ve had are right here in our own backyard.

Cape Town - Bo Kaap

Other Destinations

While I’m always drawn back to Europe and love exploring Australia, I’ve also had some wonderful travel experiences in less visited destinations.

Florence - Four Seasons

Where to Stay

Whether it’s a grand Medici palazzo in Florence or a ger on the steppes of Mongolia, the right accommodation creates a sense of place and a truly memorable experience.

Italian Food Markets - Quadrilatero Bologna

Where to Eat

From Michelin stars to humble diners, I love a new food experience. I ask the locals where to eat, visit food markets, producers and peek behind the scenes wherever I am.

Best French Markets - Marché Aux Puces De Saint-Ouen, Paris

Where to Shop

I love shopping when I travel and am usually drawn to markets and food stores, though not always. I love the quirky and unique and am always on the lookout for the perfect souvenir.
