…to the first issue of 2019 crammed with travel inspiration and expert advice from our favourite European destination! I’ve recently returned from Florence, and it was uplifting to be in the city again. Delving deeper into history at the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo (their guided tours are a must), we gained yet another new perspective with a tuktuk trip in the panoramic hills that surround the city. Following this uplifting theme of fresh horizons and infinite possibilities, our writers have travelled around Italy this month to bring you inspiration for your next adventures in il bel paese. Lake Garda is our starting point, an ever-popular destination where quieter corners still remain – if you know where to go. We also head to the hills in Tuscany’s Casentino Forest (whose trees, I’ve…

five reasons to visit puglia

Top 5 supplied by Puglia Holiday Rentals 1 Puglia is one of the largest wine producing regions in Italy but it is only in recent years that it has produced its own wines – previously the bulk was sent to wineries further north for blending. The last Sunday in May sees Cantine Aperte, where cantine (wine cellars) open to the public for tours and tastings. Wineries all over Puglia, and Italy, take part in this event so you will certainly find something to your liking. Wines worth trying are: Primitivo, Negroamaro, Susumaniello, Aglianico, Nero di Troia, and Salice Salentino. 2 Festivities are very much part of the Puglian culture and throughout the year there is always something going on – food, wine, patron saints, dance and historical events are all celebrated. 3…

Fresh finds at Pompeii Historians have been fairly certain about the date of Pompeii’s destruction for some time. However, a recently discovered inscription has cast doubt on this certainty. First-hand accounts and archaeological finds have previously pointed to the date of Vesuvius’s eruption as the 24th of August 79 AD, but archaeologists have now discovered an inscription on a house that refers to “the 16th day before the calends of November”, meaning the 17th of October. This would put the date of the city’s destruction at some time in the second half of October. Other evidence – such as autumn fruits on branches found among the ruins – also suggests that Pompeii met its end at a later date. There have been further significant discoveries during the recent Regio V excavation,…

Our Facebook followers are a well-travelled bunch, so when we asked for their Rome travel tips we weren’t disappointed… • Go inside the Altare della Patria (Vittorio Emanuele II Monument). So many people take a photo from the street but don’t go into the building. It is so beautiful. Ryrie Wild • Currently in Roma now. A reminder it is a big city so plan your days well. My fave museo is Palazzo Altemps close to Piazza Navona. A real gem and never busy. And hit the side streets for restaurants. Julie Adams • Visit the Centrale Montemartini museum, which has Roman statues displayed alongside the original machinery in this former power station! It’s amazing and very much undervisited, so you can get great photos without crowds of people. Rachel Helen Markwick • Villa d’Este in Tivoli…
