Treviso: The Garden of Venice

A couple of days discovering the Veneto region.

Treviso is an evocative and enchanting city, full of interesting places that embrace culture, history, landscape, and food and wine: this is an incredible area, rightly renamed as the Garden of Venice; for such name is probably complicit the very close ties this city had with the Serenissima. Afterall, Treviso’s history is that of a…

5-star bivouacs in Carinthia

A romantic experience under a star-lit sky

In 2018 I first told you about this incredible experience (in this article), and I wanted to relive it a few days ago. I am in Millstätter See, a few hours’ drive from Trieste. Here, in this incredible and enchanting landscape, between the mountains and a lake, you’ll find one of the “Quelle I Sorgente”…

What to do in and around Pula

Two days exploring the Istrian part of Croatia

It has been a couple of years since my last trip exploring Croatia with my friends at Croatia Full of Life. Why yes, Covid really did slow us down… but it didn’t stop us completely! This time the car stopped in Pula, just two hours from Trieste. Besides, let’s face it, without having to stop…

Discovering the Soča Valley

Go to Slovenia to immerse yourself in unspoiled nature

We are only two hours away from Trieste. After not even five minutes into the highway, leaving behind the Natisone Valleys (which I had already introduced you to last summer, more precisely here), and passing through Kobarid and the wonderful Bovec, we arrive in Soča, the place where I’ll pitch my tents for a few…

Winter experiences in Bad Kleinkirchheim.

How about skiing with Franz Klammer, thermal Spas, sledding or snowshoeing in nature?

I don’t know which of the things listed above you like to do, and I couldn’t pick one to do again, having done them all, as each one made me feel different: joy, laughter, tears of emotion, peace and absolute relaxation. It’s maybe best to start at the beginning, so, shall we? It’s early February,…

Albero Nascosto Boutique Hotel

Staying in the heart of Trieste, a stone’s throw from Piazza Unità d’Italia

My first blog article came out way back in January 2015. What did it tell you about? It was precisely about Albero Nascosto! A little place that still is one of the most charming places to stay in the city as of today. We are in a beautiful building from the eighteenth century, in the…

In Sauris among mountains, wellness and total relax

Ah, the first time! What about the second one? I don’t know what you thought, but to me this is just one of the many times I’ve come in these mountains. And when I’m talking about Sauris the only people that I can be talking about are Michele Grimaz (pictures) and Marco, who we call…

Crocevia: a contemporary Karstic inn

From Santa Croce you can enjoy a view on Trieste

Pilar Franco, born in 1987, fell in love with a wrecked house among the karstic buildings in the center of Santa Croce. With the help of her family and of her love partner Marco Tonsi, she decided to renew it and to open its doors to travelers. So, in 2021, Karstic Inn Crocevia was born. Eight…

“C” for Collio

Not just wineries: there’s also charm and good food

To those of you who don’t know this area I have say: BAD, BAD PEOPLE. It’s nonetheless true that everybody deserves a second chance, which is why you have time to catch up. How? Well, you can read all the way through this article! The Collio (“Cuei” in the local language and “Brda” in Slovenian)…
