If you like street art, you’ll want to discover Brighton graffiti. An easy day trip from London, Brighton has some beautiful scale murals by Aroe, Banksy, and others.
Beautiful cities, jaw-dropping beaches, and delicious food. Find out how to plan 10 days in Portugal, following a beautiful itinerary to discover the best in Portugal.
To many European travelers visiting northern Italy, Bergamo is just an airport, a gateway to other Italian cities. There are even tourists flying in and out the same day just for shopping. But there are plenty of things to do in Bergamo, a beautiful medieval town yet often underrated.
There’s so much to see and do in Bristol that one day is way too short. Like neighboring Bath, it’s worth visiting Bristol on a two or three days short break, although many people only come on a day trip from London.
Even if you have limited time, don’t give up. You can still enjoy some of the main Bristol activities.
A weekend break in Bath is a perfect choice if you want to combine history, a bit of pampering at the Spa, excellent food, and a touch of romance.
It’s often overshadowed by Kyoto, but a day trip to Nara is a must if you want to see the best of Japan. My jaw dropped as I walked from temple to temple in Nara Park.
Buddhist temples, Shinto shrines, and more than thousand deer strolling freely in the park: Nara Park took my breath away.
Founded in 710 A.D., over time Nara’s development was strongly affected by influences from China and Korea, and the city soon became the cradle of future Japanese culture and architecture.
Unlikely many cities of Japan, ravaged across the centuries by earthquakes and fires, many historical buildings in Nara survived time, wars and natural disasters. Today, they are one of the most stunning ancient architectural complexes in Asia, a site whose beauty will stick in my memory forever.
I first visited Ravenna last year on a day trip from Bologna, where I spent two weeks to discover the beauty of the Emilia-Romagna region.
I had been wishing to admire the Byzantine mosaics for a long time but never managed to go, and with a single day, there was not much time to get a more comprehensive idea of the city beyond the mind-blowing ancient sites.
Well known as one of the world’s fashion capitals and a longstanding business hub in Europe, there still are only a limited number of foreign tourists who plan to visit Milan, particularly if it’s their first trip to Italy.
The land of “La Dolce Vita” is one of the most fantasized destinations in the world, but while Rome, Florence, Venice, the Cinque Terre, and the Amalfi Coast captivate everyone’s imagination, Milan is hardly on the radar.
“How about a weekend in Venice in November?”
I immediately accepted because I love spending time with Stefano, my travel pal in the few occasions when I’m not traveling solo. The “where” was not relevant. I was happy to enjoy a couple of days with my best friend. I found out that without the crowds and shrouded in fog, Venice in November can be a wonderful romantic gateway.
