Imagine the most fabulous photo you’ve ever seen of the Italian countryside–deep shades of green wrapping the rolling hills, bright blue sky, the palpable feeling of summer and relaxation. Then, add a series of pools to those hillsides where, from any point, you can gaze out across the land and lose yourself in the serenity. This place is real. It’s Villaggio della Salute Più.

etwa eineinhalb Stunden östlich von Bologna liegt Rimini, der berühmte Badeort an der Adria. Mit unzähligen Klischees hat diese Stadt mit ihren etwa 140.000 Einwohnern zu kämpfen. Bei Ankunft im Hotel wird schnell klar, warum sich diese Vorurteile konstant halten. Am Eingang des Hotels hat sich eine Scharr Pauschal-Touristen versammelt, die gerade vollgepackt mit Badetüchern und Schlauchboten auf dem Weg zum Strand sind. Die Strandpromenade bietet wohl das typische Bild, das man mit Rimini verbindet: Liegestühle versperren die Sicht auf das Meer, Schnell-Restaurants reihen sich aneinander und Touristen bahnen sich ihren Weg an den Strand, von Einheimischen keine Spur. Gerade russische und deutsche Touristen haben den Badeort in fester Hand und auch junge Leute lockt der Party-Urlaub zu Billigpreisen.

O Mirabilandia é uma parque de diversões grande, com muitas atrações para crianças pequenas, diversas montanhas russas radicais (Adventureland) e alguns brinquedos de água, daqueles onde você sai encharcado, ideais para dias quentes. Foi destes que a Luiza mais gostou! Na saída destes brinquedos há “secadores” gigantes, daqueles que funcionam com moeda, onde podemos nos secar um pouco. Como fazia muito calor, nem chegamos a usar!

It’s a great way to get an introduction to a new place by a foodie expert (so you will already know where to find all of those off the beaten track best places to eat recommendations). Most food tours are also given by locals who also know a lot about the area and are passionate about it.

Cuando pensamos en Italia siempre nos vienen a la cabeza ciudades como Roma, Florencia, Venecia… pero ¿Quién piensa en Bolonia? Sin duda no es el primer destino de nuestra “lista de lugares” pero desde hoy afirmo que debería estar en las listas de todo viajero dispuesto a conocer las entrañas de un país y nunca mejor dicho, las entrañas, sobre todo el estomago, y es que si disfrutas del buen comer no puedes olvidarte de este lugar del mundo. ¿Acaso no habías oído hablar de Bolonia, la gorda? dejadme decirte que de gorda no tiene nada, gorda acabas tu después de visitarla (¡y a gusto oye!)

Kiedy po raz pierwszy wysiadłam z pociągu na stacji w Ferrarze moim oczom ukazało się prawdziwe morze rowerów. Były ich setki, jak nie tysiące. Już wtedy wiedziałam, że to miasto musi być niezwykłe. Chwilę później zanurzyłam się w plątaninę średniowiecznych uliczek i byłam już tego pewna. Ta średniowieczna dzielnica nie ma sobie równych. Ferrara może nie ma wielkich i spektakularnych atrakcji, ale ma to coś, co sprawia, że czujesz się w niej znakomicie i wracasz z nieukrywaną przyjemnością.

When you hear the words “Modena, Italy” what immediately comes to mind depends on your passions. If what pops into your mind is a flashy red sports car, then you know this to be the birth place of the Ferrari. If, on the other hand you enjoy a good balsamic vinegar or dream of sitting down with a lovely bottle of wine over a platter of cured meat and cheese, then gourmet foods come to mind.

Es ist 19:30 Uhr, Mittwochabend: Die Sonne ist allmählich dabei unterzugehen und die Temperatur ist angenehm warm. Um mich herum sind einige Bars: natürlich rappelvoll. Kellner servieren leckeres Fingerfood, während eine Gruppe Studenten mit Prosecco in geeisten Gläsern anstoßen. Nur wenige Schritte weiter sitzen junge Familien, Touristen und Pärchen bereits beim Abendessen in den unzähligen Tratorrien und Pizzerien. Es gibt Lasagne, Tortellini, frische Pasta und natürlich hauchdünne, wagenradgroße Pizza. Aus der Ferne kann man das Harfenspiel eines Straßenmusikers hören, der es sich in einer Seitenstraße nahe des Piazza Maggiore bequem gemacht hat.

Gelato is synonymous with Italy. While some Italian food dishes are very regional, you’ll find gelato shops throughout all of Italy. When we had the chance while in the Emilia Romagna region in Italy to visit a real gelato university , where we would be taught at the same school that has certified many professional gelato makers, we jumped at the chance.

Bolonha é a capital da região da Emilia Romagna, na Itália. É uma cidade pequena, alegre e cultural. A arquitetura remete a Itália da nossa imaginação: ruelas estreitas, prédios baixos, restaurantes com mesas na rua, lojinhas com queijos, massas e presuntos expostos nas vitrines.

When you think of Italian wines, what do you think of? More often it is the Tuscan wines, like Sangiovese, Chianti (which is made from Sangiovese), Barolo, Montepulciano. Maybe you think of Prosecco, or God forbid Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio. But, do you ever think about Lambrusco?
