On June 26, 2006 I launched Eye Prefer Paris, and last Friday was the 15th anniversary. Here’s the first post I wrote.   About This blog This blog is about how a native New Yorker dreamed of moving to Paris …… and what he discovered once he got there.

Bag Boy: It’s all about the product

Before plunging into this deep dive into the Bag Boy-brand, you should consider this public service announcement (PSA). If you’re a stubborn, set-in-your-ways, “you’d never catch me dead with anything that rolls” member of the double-strapped, carry fraternity, change the channel. Move on.

Especially those of you of a certain vintage who can’t look at a modern three- or four-wheeled push cart without reviving painful memories of tryi...

Week 18: Lake Powell, Antelope Canyon and Monument Valley

I’ve been so fortunate to see places around the world of exquisite beauty. It’s hard to say what is your favorite place and why.

They call you to look in so you can create something better when...

Designer Outlets in Italy

While I revel in writing about Renaissance art, medieval villages, and Ancient Rome on this site, I know that one reason visitors come to Italofile is for information about shopping — in particular, outlet shopping.

I have listed those outlets below and added others in Lazio (i.e., outside of Rome) and elsewhere in central and southern...

72 hours in Dublin

W hat do Oscar Wilde, Colin Farrell, and Conor McGregor have in common? They’re all Dubliners, of course. And they’re only random selections from a very, very long list of famous musicians, actors, authors, and entertainers to hail from the Fair City. The Republic of Ireland’s capital and the island’s largest population center, Dublin is filled with history, hospitality, literary connections, and a welcoming vibe that makes everyone want to stay. But if you’ve only got three days, here’s how y...

Italian Espresso vs American Coffee...What not to order on your next trip to Italy

With all that bad press, it's a wonder how any of us grew up to be coffee drinkers. And while I'll take an Illy Caffè Italian cappuccino over any coffee in all 50 states (okay...well maybe excluding New Orleans), when you happen upon a good's really not so bad. But ask any Italian, and for as l...
