Venice - If it's your first time in Italy, you can't miss a visit to one of the most extraordinary cities in the world. Founded in 421, totally built on water and entirely pedestrian, is a unique combination of stunning architecture, precious works of art (the Gallerie dell'Accademia are one of the most important art museums in Europe) and an incredible and fragile ecosystem, the Venetian lagoon, host of native species of flora and fauna. Venice is a town which requires you to slow your pace, adapt to its unique daily routine and take the time to admire its immediate and hidden wonders. That is why we suggest accommodations in Venice that favor a longer stay.

Siusi allo Sciliar, Dolomites - This little gem in the Alps is the perfect combination of beautiful Alpine landscape, fun outdoor activities in all seasons of the year and delicious local gastronomy. Perfect for a family trip, it's easily reachable from the town of Bolzano by public coach route. The stunning sight of Schlern mountain and its forests will greet you every day and a cable car will take you to Seiseralm, the widest plateau in Europe, site of beautiful hiking trips for all levels.
