 Normally in these small towns, part of the Borghi d'Italia list, you can breathe the real Taste of Italy, that is the atmosphere that maybe in the largest cities you are not able to perceive anymore: they are places where the clocks seem to be stopped and it's nice an escape there.

Of course, as usual, this is not a chart, but a list. You will find some places that are for sure great and I selected randomly these towns, since there are other best small towns in Italy that you could visit. These are only some of my favourites. Ready to go?

Trip reports: Ita-Slovenian Road Trip

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

600 km, 5 cities, 3 Unesco sites and 1 natural park visited in just 3 days are the main figures of the Ita-Slovenian Road Trip. It has for sure one of the more eclectic road trips I've ever made: I combined cities with natural attractions and archaeological sites with fortresses. All the places are quite close so you can reach them in less than one hour of travel.

The citadel of Palmanova, Italy

Tuesday, July 8, 2014

After the exploration of the Skocjan caves in Slovenia, I came back to my Italy and the next stop would have been Palmanova, known because of its fortifications and its concentric citadel or fortress plan. Before visiting Palmanova, I decided to come back to Trieste, the city where I studied during the old good university times.

Exploring the Skocjan caves, Slovenia

After the 36 hours in Ljubljana, I decided to visit the Skocjan caves, not far from the Italian and Slovenian border. Are you afraid of the dark? You don't mind to go underground? If not, this is a place that I definitely recommend you to visit.
