welcome…

One of the things I really love about this magazine is the different voices we feature. It is always exciting to welcome new writers to the magazine and work with our regular (and some very longstanding) contributors too. It’s fascinating to see individual takes on familiar destinations and I like to think their distinct writing styles and points of views lend pace and variety to the magazine as a whole.True to form, this issue is packed with fascinating features and articles covering the Italian peninsula. You’ll love the evocative account of a visit to Genoa – our cover star this month – there is so much to see and admire, and take a boat trip out onto the Venetian lagoon to explore the forgotten islands, all with poignant tales to…

Bill Robbins, Suffern, New York, USA “This is my wife Sue along the Portico di San Luca in Bologna. Don’t drive – walk it!” Constantine Matsos, Burlington, Ontario, Canada “While in Praiano in May 2017, my wife insisted that I could use some exercise, so she challenged me to join her on a hike of the Path of the Gods trail.” Ron Lodi, Yonkers, New York, USA “Pompeii was the highlight of the tour for me. I wish I had had more time to explore. But that gives me a reason to return.” Beverley Birchley, Worth “Carnevale in Venice.

five reasons to visit milan

1 The city of Milan has lent its name to many famous dishes, perhaps the most renowned being risotto alla Milanese. The saffron-flavoured rice, which is often served with the hearty veal stew osso buco, is said to have been developed in 1574 when an apprentice who was using saffron to stain window glass for the Duomo decided to add a pinch of the spice to some rice as a joke. Everyone loved the flavouring and the dish soon became a local speciality. Now served in restaurants all over the city, our favourite place to enjoy it has to be at Antica Trattoria della Pesa on Viale Pasubio. www.anticatrattoriadellapesa.com(Images © iStock)2 Beyond osso buco and cotoletta alla Milanese, meat features on the menu in starters like nervetti and main dishes…

Taking the top slot ahead of the USA’s Catskills, northern Peru and The Red Centre in Australia, Piedmont was lauded for its arts and music scene, exquisite countryside and food and drink offerings (among its myriad other attractions). Lonely Planet claims the area “is adept at playing to its strengths but not always so good at selling its considerable charms to visitors” – though it seems likely that this international accolade means Piedmont won’t need to shout too loud about its…

In addition, museums will remain free for those under 18, while 18-25 year olds will be able to pay the new reduced rate of €2 for these attractions. The new measures are aimed at encouraging a greater hunger for culture, especially among the young.• To the trains now, where Italy’s winter timetable includes a new high-speed Freccia Rossa train service connecting Rome Fiumicino airport with Venice – saving plane passengers the need to head into the city to get a connection.
