Are you planning to travel to Italy in the next months? Wether it is for business or for leisure, there are few things you should know while planning your trip.
Among the most amazing buildings in Piedmont Region (north west Italy) a special place is taken by a Romanesque-Gothic abbey built more than 1000 year ago on the very top of the Pirchiriano Mount, at 962 meters above the sea level (3.156 ft) called “Sacra di San Michele” (Holy Abbey of Saint Michael).
On my last day in Venice I covered Sestiere Cannaregio and, again, Sestiere Castello. Cannaregio is probably the biggest city district in Venice, covering an area spanning from the Train Station to Rialto Bridge and beyond, on the left side of the Grand Canal.
My second "off the beaten path" tour of Venice took me to Sestriere Dorsoduro, Sestiere San Polo and Sestiere Santa Croce, the 3 city districts on the right side of the Grand Canal.
I managed to find 3 itineraries that took me out of the beaten routes or, at least, out of the most crowded areas, to find highlights, stories and attractions that made my visit more comfortable, pleasant and definitely more interesting.
I was very pleased today when I opened my browser and saw that Google decided to celebrate Artemisia Gentileschi through the daily doodle.
There will come a time when Venice will sink into the water of the Adriatic sea. Despite being a city conceived to float on the lagoon and built on wooden poles that pierce the seabed, it has always been theatened by high tides since it was established.
