Everyone loves a winter getaway. Usually somewhere cold – but where should you go? Try Prague.
If you’re already dreaming of summer but want something a little special to do this year then look no further. Italy is filled with some of the most unique and romantic places in the world…
Italy is famous for a lot of things. You’ve got leather from Florence, glass from Venice, then there’s lace and silk, pizza and pasta, art and the opera, and so much more. But what they’re famous for most is wine. And everybody loves wine.
It’s the lost city (no, not Atlantis, the other one), the city buried under a thick layer of volcanic ash that lay there for almost 1700 years without being discovered. Welcome to Pompeii. In 79 AD the neighboring volcano, Mount Vesuvius, erupted killing over two thousand people and burying the city 16 feet deep in a layer of ash.
Sat on the edge of the canal are several couples eating ice cream and swinging their legs over the edge of the boardwalk. Dotted around are also several groups sipping wine and chattering noisily. It seems like nothing out of the ordinary doesn’t it?
Architecture. If there was one word to sum up what the capital city of Italy does best it would be architecture. Everywhere you look tall buildings loom over you, some with white marble columns, others with statues of marble or bronze.
