Portugal is a country with strong traditions and with proud and nostalgic people, able to fascinate famous writers and directors such as Lord Byron, Wim Wenders and Antonio Tabucchi as well as a growing number of tourists.
Portugal is one of the most fascinating and cheapest European countries to visit. It has a rich maritime past, beautiful seaside resorts, melancholy towns and a landscape characterized by olive groves, vineyards and wheat fields.
Romantic cities like Lisbon, Porto and Coimbra enchant visitors with their beauty and their timeless atmosphere, while the poignant notes of fado, the traditional Portuguese music, are indelibly imprinted in the memory of every listener. The sea is the main protagonist of every holiday in Portugal, with seaside tourism concentrated in the Algarve, but do not disdain other areas such as the coast between Cascais and Estoril or the Costa Verde.
With its burden of art and exuberant vitality, London is certainly the symbol of Great Britain; the charm of this mythical country certainly does not end with the capital.
However, England also offers other destinations of interest, such as the charming city of Brighton, on the south coast, famous for its beaches and entertainment; Dover, in the county of Kent; where to admire the well-known white cliffs, the famous and mysterious archaeological site of Stonhenge; Bath's spas and postcard Georgian architecture, and vibrant modern cities like Manchester and Birmigham. Without forgetting top-notch university centers such as Oxford and Cambridge.
Moving further north, we find Wales, one of the main industrial poles of the country but also a lively region characterized by wild nature.
Climbing a little further, we reach the rugged coasts and the mountainous landscape of Scotland, an ideal destination for summer trekking as well as to admire the beauty of Edinburgh and its fervent cultural life.
The Czech Republic is not just Prague; a special visit also deserves the splendid landscapes of Moravia, and its capital Brno, renowned city of art.
Since the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, tourists have begun to invade this welcoming country. First-time travelers complain that they no longer have Prague for themselves, but the Czech Republic still offers its beauties to anyone who seeks them. If Prague is exciting, almost every location outside of this wonderful city is little visited by tourists and almost untouched. All that remains is to travel, armed with a critical sense and curiosity.
Romania is a fascinating country, full of medieval cities with castles, fortresses, churches and monasteries, and beautiful cities hidden in the hills.
A country waiting to be discovered, among lush valleys, mountains full of castles, and historical regions such as Transylvania. Those who decides to travel to this land, still practically unknown to mass tourism, will find a truly interesting country, unique from different points of view and with a series of truly unique places. From the vibrant capital Bucharest, which is becoming more westernized every day, to the splendid Brasov and Sighisoara, steeped in memories of a medieval past made up of castles (not to be missed that of Dracula, but also those of Peles or Corvino), customs and traditions.
Russia is a country so vast that it has an extraordinary variety of landscapes and climates within it.
From the coasts overlooking the Arctic Ocean, to the Ural Mountains, which traditionally divides European Russia from the Asian one, passing through the boundless plains of the interior and the archipelagos of the islands of the Arctic Ocean and the Pacific, the Russian Federation is a world of its own. Russian cities are unique and have an enchanted charm, like the majestic capital Moscow, with its monuments and wide avenues dominated by the golden domes of churches, or St. Petersburg, the most European city in the country, built on water, and crossed by the sinuous Neva, specially designed to be elegant and tidy.
A country that is striking for its contradictions, but also for its great vitality.
Spain is more than just bullfights, flamenco and crowded beaches. It is a very different place inside, with landscapes and cultures so different that they seem different countries.
From the almost "Irish" north - thanks to the green hills, imposing mountain scenery and endless cliffs - to the more Mediterranean south, where a taste of Morocco hovers in the landscapes, art and architecture. Gradually passing by the fjords and rolling hills of Galicia, the spectacular mountain ranges of Asturias, the Basque Country and the endless vineyards of the ancient kingdom of Navarre. Not forgetting, of course, the renewed Madrid and the nightlife of Barcelona. Spain is also the country of the Alhambra and the white villages of Andalusia, the Almeria desert and the endless expanses of orange and lemon plantations around Valencia. If you add to this the Balearic Islands (with the hectic life of Ibiza and the natural paradises of Formentera) and the wild and volcanic Canaries, it is easy to understand how it is enough to move a little, to find a different Spain every time.
Unspoiled nature, cities and small towns overflowing with culture make Switzerland an ideal destination for your holidays.
Sunny cities with a Mediterranean climate meet high and snow-capped Alpine peaks, green and lush forests are the backdrop to international financial centers: this is Switzerland. Few other countries in the world manage to combine so many characteristics in such a small territory. In fact, Switzerland is home to internationally famous locations, such as St. Moritz and Davos where many celebrities and royal family characters go on vacation, and at the same time small towns with an intimate and familiar atmosphere. This destination is able to accommodate the needs of different visitors thanks to the excellent ski facilities, the itineraries for trekking and mountain biking but also to the numerous resorts that offer boutiques for shopping and spas with healing mineral springs.
