I believe that many do love the Opera as much as I do and that however many foreigners do only know the most important theatres of Italy such as La Scala in Milan (which is actually the one and only Holy Temple of the Opera), however, there are several Opera Houses in the Country that do organise exceptional seasons and should not be forgotten.
In the past weeks I have explored quite a lot of my surroundings including places I do not visit very often or where I had never been before despite their proximity.
In 2018 I decided to spend my Christmas Holidays in India. Having just a couple of weeks at my disposal I had to decide which area of the Country I could visit. I choose Rajastan, the north west region, but obviously as my entry gate was Delhi which is not far from Agra, I also included the Incredible Taj Mahal in my visit.
I am spending my weekends roaming around on the Alps, the hillside of Langhe, Monferrato and Roearo, the Lake district and many other places I have always underestimated or neglected.
I believe I need a Local Guide for several reasons, even if I am a big independent traveller.
The Abbey of Vezzolano. A magnificent Romanesque architecture is one of the most beautiful places in Piedmont
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).
