Guests were not only treated to [...]

The Best Beaches in Italy

Cala Goloritze, Sardinia Look out to sea at Cala Goloritze and you’ll be transported to the Caribbean. The beautiful bright aquamarine hue of the water and powdery white sand has to be seen to be believed. A Unesco Heritage site, there are no loungers and loud beach bars here, instead visitors come to unwind in [...]

FLORENCE

Florence, capital of Italy’s Tuscany region, and land of the Renaissance, was as beautiful as I thought it would be, and more. We spent about two days just walking around, having the most delicious (HUGE) €5 sandwiches at All'antico Vinaio and creamy rich gelato at Gelatoteca Santa Trinita.

Each night felt like sleeping in a museum and like members of a noble Florentine family surrounded by vaulted ceilings, astounding frescoes and stucco. Our stay was like none other, with impeccable service included. The [...]
