The immortal beauty of Italy


«Il Belpaese / ch'Appennin parte, e 'l mar circonda et l'Alpe ». In this way the Italian peninsula was described already in the fourteenth century, through the immortal verses of Francesco Petrarca. And it is, in fact, a beautiful country: it has always been recognized as the most cultural, artistic and naturalistic of  the world, with a diverse ecosystem and spectacular scenery, charming medieval villages and ancient cities. Italian Traditions this week wanted to take you through a fascinating journey to the most beautiful corners of this wonderful land, fabulous destinations that embody all the beauty of  the famous peninsula.

In Cervinia we discovered the imposing Cervino, a mountaineering paradise born more than two hundred years in Breuil which until then was just a huge pasture inaccessible. Today it is considered one of the most spectacular corners of the Alps and has one of the largest ski resorts in the continent.

Even the Three peaks of Lavaredo are a unique natural treasure in the Alps and across Italy: these three giant stone fingers are mixed with clouds in the spectacular sunsets of Trentino and, for centuries, its walls are the fate of  best climbers. On our trip, we finally arrived at the spectacular beach of Tuerredda, one of the most beautiful of the southern coast of Sardinia and we also got down to the romantic Faraglioni of Capri, true international icons of Made in Italy. After we  found relaxing wellness in the crystalline waters of San Vito Lo Capo and even we discover the dark legends about the mysterious Alchemy gate in the center of Rome.

Unique places like its unique beauty that can be explored by staying in the best facilities in the Italian territory, such as the Geovillage Olbia, an elegant equipped center  with a Beauty & Spa, as well as the most varied sports facilities, all within a few kilometers of the best beaches on the Costa Smeralda. Also we visited the old Masseria Torre Maizza, a wide scattered farm between olive groves and sunny Gargano, where you can taste all the flavors of this wonderful land of ancient traditions. Located in the feuds of Marsala countryside there is Baglio Oneto Resort and Wines Hotel, a charming eighteenth century house known for its wines, restored and converted into a fantastic 4 star hotel with 49 elegant rooms with attention to detail.
