In theory, the Italian city of Lucca (in Tuscany) is small enough for a day trip. However, in reality, a day is much too short. Because yes, in a day I get a reasonable idea of the city, but I now I want to come back one more time to really get to know this orange and red-colored town. So, if you only have a few hours too, these are Lucca’s highlights.
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.
It is almost a shame to only stay in the city during a visit to Trento. Almost, because it is a fantastic city to explore. If you do want to discover the area, try one of these 5 day trips.
A yoga retreat requires at least a weekend, right? Wrong! You can go on a retreat for half a day on Ibiza. During the high season, the Dutch Lauri regularly organizes short yoga retreats with her company, One Day Retreat.
