After only 20 attempts I’ve got it: my ultimate leaning Tower of Pisa photo – well, almost. Let’s get you one too, and then climb the Leaning Tower and see what more there is to do in the city. Check the tips.
Sirmione. What was once an idyllic Italian village on Lake Garda has become a real tourist trap. The village is ruined by its own success if you ask me. However, because the castle Rocca Scaligera is an impressive sight, I think you shouldn’t skip the village. So go in town, and get out asap.
Outdoor fans have known it for a long time: the university city Trento makes the perfect home base to discover the Italian Alps, from South Tyrol to the Dolomites. Trento is hidden between majestic mountains, endless vineyards, and clear blue lakes and rivers: a gorgeous city where the word mass tourism has not (yet) made it to the dictionary.
Doornenburg, a small town in Gelderland, the Betuwe. I drive on narrow dikes, and around me, I mainly see meadows and water. But hidden in between, there’s plenty to experience: a castle, a fortress, and a Michelin-starred restaurant.
The houses of Santanyí have a golden-white glow thanks to the sandstone. When the sun hits, the town sparkles. Some palm trees are spread over the town, to get you into the Mediterranean vibe. Santantyí definitely deserves a visit during your stay in Mallorca. Take half a day and don’t forget the Mondragó National Park!
