Can you hear Maria Callas singing at La Scala in Milan? Maybe you heard her outstanding voice on the stereo but nothing can beat live music in Italy. This is the home of inspiring songwriters, lyric singers and folk music like the traditional Tarantella. You could also think of having a Sunday ride on a roaring red Vespa crossing the Tuscany round hills. On the other hand, if you are more the type for spiritual connections, the fluttering of the waves on the endless Italian coast and the mountain breeze are great travel companions.

Imagine waking up to the smell of freshly baked bread, blooming flowers and a cup of in-house made Moka coffee. What a sweet morning that must be! At midday, the Mediterranean rosemary plants release their perfumes in the warm air of the Southern regions while mountain fresh air makes its way in the northern nights.
