Surrounded by smooth, verdant hills, Brisighella is a delightful medieval village, considered one of the most beautiful towns in Italy. The castle, the clock tower, and the Monticino sanctuary towering at the top of the steep spurs are bewitching. And the colorful houses of the center are charming. No matter if it’s a tiny town because …
The famous Gothic cathedral painted by Monet and the medieval quarter with its beautiful half-timbered houses. Rouen stole my heart!
Easy to reach from all the main European cities, Munich is perfect for a short break or a stopover along your journey, but what to see in Munich if you only have 2 days?
Of course, the longer you stay the more you can discover, but chances are that most visitors will spend between 1 and 3 days in the capital city of Bavaria, either during a weekend or as a leg of a longer journey across Germany.
Forget the Cinque Terre and go hiking Portofino!
All right, this might be a bit of an overstatement – after all, the Cinque Terre are one of the most popular destinations in Italy for international travelers – but believe me, the area of Portofino Natural Park is beautiful.
Provided that you go off-season. But this is true almost everywhere in Italy if you want to beat the crowds.
Why did it take me so long to go and visit Northern Ireland?
I kept repeating the question to myself during my [way too short] road trip along the Causeway Coastal Route. I wrote two long articles on this exceptional drive and the many wonderful spots that made me stop more times than I could ever have imagined. Now, I rely on the power of images more than on words, and I’m pretty sure that they will feed your wanderlust and inspire you to visit Northern Ireland.
If you’re an independent traveler, you’ll love a road trip in Northern Ireland! People are very friendly and the scenery is simply stunning!
Think Monza F1 Grand Prix is only for people passionate about car races and speed? Think again! A weekend in Monza during the race can be a lot of fun.
Only about 20 km from Milan, Monza is worth spending some time, if only to visit Villa Reale and its park, and have a walk in the small but pretty historical center. I’ll write about that soon. For now, let’s focus on an event which was much more exciting than I expected.
Although often overlooked, Milan is well worth spending a few days. However, if you only have time for one thing, a must do in Milan is without doubt walking on the Duomo rooftop and visit the Cathedral, which is the most famous landmark of the city.
I hadn’t planned hiking the West Highland Way, probably the most popular long-distance trail in Scotland. It just happened. And it was an amazing experience.
I knew I would go to Scotland in September to attend a conference (the STSInverness Summit) and from the beginning, I decided that it was the perfect excuse to stay a few more days. I had been to Scotland before, but only visited Edinburgh and Glasgow, both beautiful cities, and I was keen to see the wild landscapes I had admired so many times in pictures and books.
