Meet Miami, the hilarious globetrotting chihuahua that's been everywhere

Miami is the hilarious Italian chihuahua that is definitely doing more travel than any of us.

Famous throughout the world, the Bridge of Sighs is photographed by tourists from everywhere. 💂👨👲🏾👧🏽👸🏿 Its name is based on a legend, which says that in Serenissima’s time the prisoners, crossing the bridge, sighing at the standpoint of seeing for the last time the outside world, because it was the connection between the halls of the courts de Duke Palace and the New Prison. 😩 Today, its symbol is over-romantic in connection with the sight of the lover’s walks in the gondola. It is perhaps the biggest attractions in Venice, and it is said that if a couple passes under the Bridge of Sighs their love will last forever. ❤️❤️❤️ #miami_traveller_dog #doglovers #Traveltips #TravelingPets #traveldiary #ilovevenice #insta_dogs #globetrotter #tinydog #animallovers #travelinspiration #ilovemydog #dogscorner #subdayfunday #TLPicks #wanderlustdog #TLdogs #adorabledog #instachihuahua #cntraveler #lovechihuahua #travelwithpets #instatravel #instago #travelingdog #funnydog #ig_venice #ilovevenice #TheWorldGuru #travelerinvenice

Based out of Rome, the little dog has been everywhere from New York to Santorini, all the while keeping things stylish by wearing wonderful little outfits from hoodies to hats.

When he’s not living la ‘dolce vita’ he’s off with his owner Marianna Chiaraluce, who works in the hospitality industry and therefore has many an occasion to bring Miami on exotic trips.

With its ornate fountains, baroque palazzi (mansions) and colourful cast of street artists, hawkers and tourists, Piazza Navona is central Rome’s elegant showcase square. ⛲️🏟 Its grand centrepiece is Bernini’s Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi (Four Rivers Fontain), an ornate, showy fountain featuring personifications of the rivers Nile, Ganges, Danube and Plate. This amazing fontain is one of the movie location Angels & Demos by Dan Brown…! I love baroque and this stunning square is a perfect example! ❤️ love from Rome #miami_traveller_dog #iloveitaly #roma #TravelingPets #weekend #ig_rome #insta_dogs #romanholiday #chihuahuafanatics #monument #travelitaly #ilovemydog #dogscorner #piazzanavona #lovedogs #wanderlustdog #TLdogs #adorabledog #instachihuahua #weeklyfluff #lovechihuahua #travelwithpets #history #ig_roma #travelingdog #funnydog #happyface #baroque #ig_italy #Grammasters3

Originally adopted from a dog-breeding kennel in order to be a competing prize dog, it turned out Miami had a health condition that wouldn’t allow him compete.

We spent two lovely days in Oia, known through the World for its quiet life and amazing sunset and is certainly the most beautiful and picturesque village of Santorini. 🌅🌞It is very traditional with narrow streets, blue domed churches and sun-bathed verandas. Its streets are plenty of typical shops, taverns, cafe with stunning sea views! Don’t miss the little port of Ammoudi which can be reached by a set of 300 steps lending down. Take a swim and don’t worry to come back up you will find lots of nice donkeys waiting for You! 🐴🐶🐾 Happy Sunday from Santorini 😎 #miami_traveller_dog #doglovers #Traveltips #TravelingPets #ig_greece #unusualplace #insta_dogs #lovesantorini #tinydog #animallovers #travelinspiration #ilovemydog #dogscorner #bestwoof #lovedogs #greekvillage #TLdogs #adorabledog #instachihuahua #weeklyfluff #lovechihuahua #ilovegreece #travelgreece #ig_greece #travelingdog #funnydog #santorini #mytravelgram #sundayfunday #amazingview

But this didn’t stop him. Miami took to travel instead and he’s now been to 15 US states as well as to dozens of international destinations.

Aside from bringing his followers on Instagram to amazing locations, Miami is also undeniably funny with his comic bug eyes and dead pan expression that’s characteristic of Chihuahuas.
