Places in Italy


  1. Ferry Ischia

    It’s a good thing that Ischia promises lux hotels with steaming natural hot baths, soothing massages, and meal plans that will leave you lulled into a state of relaxation fit for an Emperor’s consort. Because getting there can present quite a challenge.

  2. Porto Ischia

    I'll forgive you if you have never heard of the island of Ischia before. A relaxing island of volcanic origin where you can find more than 100 thermal springs that have countless healing powers that made it a popular wellness destination. In addition to wellness tourism, people

  3. The Castello Argonese

    People often ask: should I skip Crotone? In fact, I'd suggest adding Crotone to your itinerary; it's an undiscovered gem with a charm that's not immediately apparent. It's true that Crotone may not be as well known as other destinations, but that's precisely its

  4. Is Halloween a old Roman tradition

    As the end of October approaches, the kids start thinking about their Halloween costumes, and plastic orange pumpkins start appearing in stores, it's time to begin planning for the holiday season and winter activities that involve pumpkins.

  5. Travelling through Cinque Terres winecountry

    The Cinque Terre – or Five Lands – is home to one of Italy's most famous National Parks. It's one of the crown jewels of the Mediterranean, and anyone who hasn't been there should definitely plan a trip through the famed five fishing villages that make up the area. We

  6. Cinque Terre, with the villages of Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore, has become one of the busiest tourist attractions in recent years and is in great danger of

  7. Santuario di Santa Maria dell'Isola di Tropea

    As we enter Tropea, the thought crosses my mind that you better not drop anything out of your window because retrieving it would be quite a task. The Lungomare, the boulevard, gracefully wraps around the rock upon which the old town perches. The houses seem like a straight extension upwards.

  8. Colosseum tickets available

    The Colosseum in Rome is taking new measures to curb ticket resale by brokers. From October 18th, 2023, the Colosseum Archaeological Park, which includes the Roman Forum, the Palatine Hill and the Domus Aurea, in addition to

  9. Feline Dentistry Conference in Rome is just one of the events in a packed conference season

    You guessed it, or maybe not. Italy has one of the most packed conference agendas of any city in the world in any one month, say January you'll find conferences on Feline Dentistry to Drug Tourism, and you were wondering why the hotels were full, right? Of course, not all of

  10. Florence

    The historic center of Florence is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and at the same time a kind of open-air museum. Strict measures have been taken to protect the many monuments and works of art. But the center is small enough to be perfect to walk around while you visit. (Due

  11. Rome with kids

    Travel to Rome with kids takes some planning. Depending on their ages, it's best to alternate a museum or cathedral with the zoo, lots of gelato, a street art tour or an amusement park.

  12. Borgosantandrea Bar

    There are still quite a few tourists on the Amalfi coast from Sorrento to Salernoin the fall, but certainly not the crowds of July and August. This is the time when the exclusive international audience mingles with the locals of the famous

  13. Historic stockfish store in Genoa

    I'm not aware of any other European country that makes such an effort to preserve the historical character of stores, hotels and some cafés. It must have been painful at times not to keep up with the times, but tradition usually triumphs over profit, or so it appears.

  14. The Matterhorn

    Visitors to Italy in winter may be treated to far fewer crowds in museums, but with ski resorts more crowded instead –- especially during February's "white week" or settimana bianca, when schoolkids get a mid-winter break to hit

  15. Portus, ancient port near Fiumicino

    Lots of people with early morning flights choose to spend a night nearer the airport. Lots more maybe have flight delays or pick up a car and maybe need a break from a long flight - with exhausted kids in the back seat. So what to do? Here's your guide to some fantastic

  16. Cipriani-Venice

    Italy, the land of pasta, fashion, stunning coastlines, and of course... celebrities! It's long been a hotspot for the rich and famous, but let's be honest, not every celeb is blessed with good taste. Let's take a glimpse into the glittering lives of these A-listers on Italian soil.

  17. Genoa Porto Antico

    In August 2018, we released our travel guide for Genoa for the first time. This year, we've launched a new edition (2023) of this free guide, packed with fresh features and current tips, including a new interactive map. Besides advice on attractions, restaurants, hotels, and

  18. The portal of the Basilica di Santa Croce in Lecce

    Lecce is located in the province of Salento, which as you may, belongs to the region of Puglia. But the inhabitants prefer to call themselves 'salentini' instead of 'pugliesi'. Probably because Lecce, while the capital of Salento, and actually the entire surrounding area, can be considered

  19. Basilica San Marco Venice, enchantingly beautiful and timelessly romantic. A city that seems to float on water is ironically also a city that struggles with that same water. The phenomenon of "acqua alta," or high water, has been part of its story for centuries. But what does it really mean for the city and its...
  20. No sun Amalfi

    When you think of Amalfi, you might picture sun-drenched beaches and clear blue skies. But don't let a little rain dampen your spirits when you visit this picturesque Italian coast. Experiencing the Amalfi Coast in the rain can be a unique and enchanting adventure that you'll remember forever.
