Italy’s Best Parks

Here is our top 10 places to have a great time with your family and friends

1. Gardaland

This fun-fair is probably one of the most popular, not only in Italy, but throughout Europe. Tourists from all over the world flock here to get an adrenaline rush. The amusement park was opened about 40 years ago, and since then it has been developing day and night. Every year it brings out new rides to please both children and adults. Thrill-seekers can enjoy nature while resting under the shade of the trees. Gardaland is located in a green area near the picturesque Lake Garda.

Portofino, The Yacht Club Of The Mediterranean Sea

Vis à vis with Giovanni Copello, owner of the most exclusive yacht charter location in Italy

Tim Thomas, editor of Boat International, wrote in Forbes magazine the article, “Where Billionaires Choose To Dock: The World’s Most Expensive Arenas”. The rich? They like Portofino, which “was once a small fishing village and has only one road in and out, which incidentally is usually closed, allowing the area to remain unspoiled. Arguably one of the prettiest harbours out there, Marina di Portofino is where only the wealthiest can afford. It has only 14 berths maximizing the privacy and therefore the exclusivity of the marina. If you get a spot, expect to mingle with the likes of Steven Spielberg (owner of the yacht Seven Seas), Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and pop singer Rihanna. It is also a favorite spot for Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko, owner of the 119 metre Philippe Starck-designed superyacht A.”

Chanel Supermarket

Karl Lagerfeld, for the Chanel FW 2014-15 fashion show, has created something absolutely unique

He has trasformed the Parisian catwalk into a luxury supermarket. Models have not properly walked the runway in the more common way, but they shopped the shelves wearing truly unique accessories: decorated baskets, egg box clutches, milk carton purses, and many others with the very recognizable cross “C” logo. Never before has a box of chocolates been so valuable!

Men’s Game

Forever young, sexy and stereotype-free – that’s the way designers see the modern man. Pitti Uomo and Milan Fashion Week exhibitors want the masculine members of society to be sleek, avidly seek  vibrant accessories and wear Bermuda shorts next summer

Pitti Uomo’s new session has started with table tennis. Two giant rackets and dozens of tables have been installed in the courtyard. The ping pong balls were bouncing from one playing field to another on their own. Visitors were pretty amazed watching a virtual match. Finally their curiosity was answered by Pitti Immagine’s Deputy General Director, Agostino Poletto, who said: “Ping Pong is a constant movement, concentration, passion and sleight of hand. Fashion has the same elements that help to create new models’ style and choose fabric, color and cut.”

Marsala, An English Love

The Sicilian sweet wine has a long history. Exploited by the British, used for decades in the preparation of pastries, it is now a great sipping wine for aperitifs and after-dinner drinks

Marsala is undoubtedly one of the most famous Italian liqueur wines. Produced in Sicily, it began its legendary story in 1773. At that time the English merchant John Woodhouse landed at the port of Marsala and had the opportunity to taste the excellent local wine, which was aged in wooden barrels and took a taste similar to the “Porto”, which at this time was very famous in the United Kingdom.

Roman Holiday Guide To The Eternal City

It seems little has changed in the capital of Italy since the Roman Empire. It is still the center of the world and the cradle of Western culture. Every day thousands of tourists flock here in order to touch the history of this mysterious and magnificent city

Rome is very difficult to write and tell about. This city is boundless, so you need to be here to understand and feel it. Italy’s capital is like a layer cake. Epochs have come and gone, leaving their indelible mark on the face of Rome. Many times famous directors were trying to catch the mood of the Eternal City. “Roman Holiday” with Audrey Hepburn, “The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone” with Vivien Leigh, “La Dolce Vita” by Fellini, and finally, “To Rome with Love” by Woody Allen – those are attempts to make a truthful and succinct portrait of the capital. But there is always something elusive behind the scenes. Each time Rome has shown us its different faces, thus no matter how many times you come back here there is still something to amaze you.
