Bergamo offers plenty of art, history, culture and food. It's characterised by its medieval upper town ( Città Alta) surrounded by venetian walls recently declared UNESCO heritage. From Città Alta you can please an amazing and breath-taking view on the lower town (Città Bassa), a fully modern city.


Little known city with an interesting and varied historic heritage which is the core of a prosperous industrial powerhouse. Walking through the old town you will be drawn to the gems hidden among its narrow streets, the castle, the Roman forum, lots of charming squares and its lively arts scene and nightlife.


Known as the city of love thanks to Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, Verona attracts tourists from all over the world. Mainly known for its grand Roman arena, ( Arena di Verona) one of the greatest opera venues, Verona has much to offer: Medieval castles, gothic tombs, lovely taverns and Piazza delle Erbe, the heart of the city where you will find exquisite souvenirs and local products.


The medieval historic centre of Sirmione is situated at the end of a peninsula in the heart of Lake Garda.
It is a mecca for tourists for the thermal water, its huge Roman villa, the colourful flowers, the castle which is the only one in the world to possess its own port,and the cheerful people enjoying ice-cream, walking through the streets: it is like waking up inside a postcard.


A few kilometres (of hairpin bends) away from Brescia you will end up in a completely different world. Following quiet trails through meadows and woods you'll have the chance to admire breathtaking natural sceneries, jump into freezing mountain lakes, visit organic farms, cuddle the lovely animals that live up there and... you never know, every turn of the path might hide a big surprise!
