    Krakow: one of the most fascinating medieval cities in Europe

    The top things to see in Krakow Old Town As I have already said, Krakow is one of the most fascinating medieval cities in Europe and the fact that escaped World War II destruction surprised me a lot. In fact, there are not so many cases. First, what I like most are its soaring Gothic church spires and cobblestone streets.  Second, its Old Town heart is attested by UNESCO so there is no need to say that it’s very beautiful.  I visited this town in December, it was cold outside but there were lots of Christmas markets, perfect for tasting some local food.  Different monuments in Krakow Old Town St Mary’s Basilica…

    Romantic night sleeping in a Cave room in Matera

    Matera: a hidden treasure in Basilicata, in the south of Italy Matera enchants everyone, leaving visitors speechless. It’s one of the oldest city in the world and things didn’t change with the passing of the time: history, culture and nature meet creating charming landscapes. Due to this, Matera is a unique city and a timeless place. But the most famous things here are the Sassi and, for them, it became the first site in southern Italy declared a World Heritage Site. Furthermore, landscapes and natural areas of different flora and fauna are incomparably beautiful. Anyway, the “Sassi” or “Stones” are probably the first thing you still think about when someone talk about…

    Weekend guide to Puglia exploring Itria Valley.

    More about Itria Valley in Puglia  Between the Ionian and Adriatic coasts of Puglia rises the great limestone plateau of the Murgia (473m). At the center of the Murgia lies the idyllic and fairytale Itria Valley. The landscape here is so particular: dry-stone walls, vineyards, almond and olive groves, winding country lanes.  This is the part of Puglia most visited by foreign but also Italian tourists.  Four cities to visit in this zone of Puglia Each one has its own charm because they are all beautiful but different.

    My two days in Budapest: the combination of Buda and Pest.

    The city of Budapest I’m honest, Budapest wasn’t on my bucketlist.  I don’t know why, maybe for the coldness or maybe because Eastern European countries never  appeal me. Anyway, I had the opportunity to collaborate with Kempinsky Hotel Corvinus and I can’t refuse it but know I prefer to tell you about the city and later about the hotel. Just arrived, Budapest shows itself foggy and cold as I thought it was but when I reached out the center these negative sensation turned into positive because the fog rising from the Danubio river and the imposing and luminous palaces overlooking it make everything so charming. As soon as I left the luggages,…

    How to visit Lanzarote Island in a week: the attractions and the beaches.

    Lanzarote Island As for Lanzarote, each of the Canarian Island has its own characteristic and personal look. Lanzarote is quite arid, ruddy toned and surreal. It seems like a volcanic world that looks pretty much like it belongs on another planet. In a strange land like this it is no surprise there are different spots to see and lots of places to visit. Here you can see different examples of that. The place of the Island from where we started our journey is Puerto del Carmen, a few kms far from the airport. Lanzarote cities Puerto del Carmen is where the “tourists” can enjoy the beach and the Main Street…

    Cuba: a timeless travel in this amazing Caribbean Island.

    You probably already know that traveling to Havana is like traveling back in time: the weathered buildings, the old classic cars and the rich history standing out as top lures on your visit to Cuba. When we arrived in Cuba, we first visited the city of Havana, the capital of this Caribbean Island. Everything seems to be stopped in 1950s: the cars, the buildings, the streets and much more. One thing I have recommended myself to do is to have a ride on this particular vehicle, and I did it! Listening to the latin music they have with the wind and the sea breeze blowing in the hair have no…
