    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.

    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.

    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,…

    Diversity in unity in Prague quarters and districts.

    Arrival in Prague We were very excited about the idea to visit the capital of Prague in November. We were hosted at The Emblem hotel, located in the very center of the city. It offers 59 rooms, a lounge space to chill out, a restaurant, a bar and a Spa. The M Spa is located on the last floor of the building and has a rooftop terrace with a private jacuzzi. It’s the perfect spot for enjoying a view of the city, in particular during the golden hour, or escaping from the traffic of the urban center and re-equilibrate yourself.

    Autumn in a modern and multicultural Stockholm.

    Arrival As everyplace in the North Europe I would like to visit, even Stockholm I thought to visit in the summer but I have the opportunity to come in autumn. Below you will find why. By the way, during the flight my thought went to the coldness I was coming to feel as soon as I arrive in the city. But when I first arrived there, every doubts began to go far away.

    Copenaghen: the city of bikes, islands and canals.

    We all know that the marvelous city of Copenaghen is well-known for its endless bicycle lanes, its Hygge concept, its order and punctuality of the means of transport and the calmness that you feel while driving the bike. Anyway, as long as you do not live it, you will never realize it. Day One My visit begins with the invitation of VisitDenmark (The official Tourism Organization of Denmark) to appreciate this wonderful country and the city of Copenaghen, which I consider as the crossroads between continental Europe and the cold Scandinavian peninsula. Very rare but the first thing that amazes me is the proximity of the airport, which is just 10…

    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…

    A marvellous weekend in South Tyrol

    I live in Veneto so it is not difficult to reach the South Tyrol for me but if you come from far, the nearest airport is Venice. In order to reach this fantastic region you have to cross mountain passes where you can enjoy stunning scenery any time of year. With luck, I find myself going to every season to see the wonderful changes that nature offers. Coming from Cortina, just crossed the mountain pass I immediately find the quaint village of St Kassian where I will be staying for 2 nights in the beautiful structure of the Lagació Hotel. The most important things for the native people in Alta…
