Edinburgh is fun, real fun. It’s a city to enjoy on foot up and down those beautiful hills that instantly put you in a good mood in spite of the usually terrible weather. The charming at day but enveloped in mystery at night cobblestone streets are full of history, there is a fantastic place to grab a drink or a bite in almost every corner and the city has a terrific cultural life. Squeezing all that Edinburgh has to offer in a couple of days could be difficult (and stressful), so take it easy, try to focus on having a good time and follow these tips to enjoy a wonderful slow-paced weekend in Edinburgh. HOW TO GET THERE The Edinburgh airport is perfectly connected to the city by bus and tram. The tram takes a little bit longer and cost a tad more but the ride is smoother. Whatever you choose you won’t need more than half an hour to be in Princess Street with the Old Town standing majestically to your right and …
Cortina d’Ampezzo is one of those postcard perfect little villages that comes in to your mind whenever you think about Christmas, Winter wonderlands or romcoms that take place in charming mountain retreats. But actually Cortina d’Ampezzo is better than all that because it’s real: the chalets, the light green pointed bell tower, the twisting mountain roads surrounded by green meadows and dense woods, those impressive, magnificent mountains that border the landscape… We live the whole year waiting for that first crisp, pine scented, invigorating deep breath that we take the moment we arrive. HOW TO GET THERE Cortina is located a two hour car ride away from Venice Airport. Remember to book your seat on the right side of the plane to see the majestic Venice from your window. If a thick matted wool like fog doesn’t interfere with your landing, that is. Once in Venice, you can take the Cortina Express or de ATVO regional buses. Both have a very convenient stop at Venice airport. You can always rent a car (the roads are …
You know that London is one of our favourite destinations and if you checked our IG feed yesterday you would have seen a little preview of today’s post. Yes, after lots of long weekends in Marylebone, a couple of wonderful stays discovering the Southbank and a love story with Carnaby Street, we’ve finally decided to publish The slow pace guide to London. Of course we are not Londoners, but just as we did with our Copenhagen guide, we wanted to share with you a few addresses that we love, hotels where we’ve stayed and other recommendations to savour, enjoy and love London. The slow pace way, of course!
Copenhagen is one of our favorite places in the world. We love everything about it: the city is not too big but offers thousands of possibilities, almost everyone is friendly (and really good-looking), the architecture and design are outstanding and there is a fantastic food scene. We’ve decided to put together our list of recommendations in case you are thinking about visiting Copenhagen. These are just some of our favorite places and things to do for a laid-back, relaxing weekend. Don’t expect a full guide of monuments, transport tips or historical facts. But! If you want to spend a few days wandering around Copenhagen, eating great food, doing some shopping and enjoying life, then this might be of your interest.
Short afternoon post to show you another highlight of our trip to Italy last month. This is a tiny village located just some kilometers away from Vicenza. We made a short stop in our way to Bassano del Grappa to have an ice espresso coffee and have a look at the its two castles, the one on the top of the hill and the one in the main square.
Bassano del Grappa is one of those little villages that steal your heart. It might not appear in most of the guides about the Veneto region but it’s one of the nicest places you could visit. It’s the perfect setting for long walks and has the most amazing sunsets. Placed under the mountains and crossed by the river Brenta, Bassano del Grappa will make you want to sell everything, buy a house by the river and forget abour the world.
Verona is a fantastic town, perfect for a weekend getaway. Although it’s one of the most famous towns in Veneto, it’s usually visited during daytrips while touring the region. Therefore, if you only have a few hours to enjoy Verona, here you have our little guide to make the most of the city in one day.
And we jump from Menorca to Corsica, a land full of character. This could be the strongest personality of the Mediterranean sea. Fierce nature, strong flavours, dramatic scenery and fascinating history make this island a real treasure.
