Rome


 

Rome is known as the 'Eternal City', the centre of Western Civilization and one of the most widely visited cities in the world.  It is a city of contrasts, both ancient and modern. Romantic and harsh. It is a place of beautiful warm light and many dark corners. 
 
The layers of history in Rome are second to none in the world and to appreciate Rome, in all its glory, it is useful and helpful to have some understanding of what happened here over the centuries.  Whether you do tours with us or another company, it is most helpful to read - do guided tours - watch films.  
 
This city is one of the most important cultural, artistic and intellectual centres in Europe.  It is also home to Vatican City, the centre of the Catholic Church.
 
The history of Rome and Vatican City draw over 58 million visitors each year, almost as many people who live in Italy.  
 
 

 

Lecce


 

Alberobello


 

 

Puglia: land of sun and sea, of endless countryside scattered with centuries-old olive trees, of baroque cities and white-washed towns, of ancient popular traditions and the mystic Taranta.
 
From the rocky, forest-covered Gargano to the Tremiti islands and further South still, to Gallipoli and Santa Maria di Leuca, the Puglian coastline is one incredibly long and spectacularly beautiful beach. Inland, surrounded by vineyards and centuries-old olive groves, visitors finds both large and small towns, rich in historical interest, culture and folklore. In addition to the inhabitants strong sense of humour, brilliantly expressed in local traditions such as the carnival of Putignano, Puglia is famous for its stunning baroque and Romanesque cathedrals, its beehive shaped Trulli and imposing fortified farmhouses or, Masseria. A food-lover’s paradise, this part of Southern Italy is also known for its excellent cuisine.

Capri


 

Emperors and sovereigns, sheiks and noblewomen, novelists and divas, painters and poets. All seduced by this magical island, by its infinite beauty and by its fascinating history.

Rising up out of the sea just off the far end of the Sorrentine peninsula, the island of Capri has long been the Bay of Naples' most desirable, and glamorous destination. Preferred playground of the rich and famous since Roman times, Augustus found Capri's enchanting landscape the perfect antidote to the stresses of office; Tiberius even moved the imperial capital here, and transformed the island in magnificent theatre for his infamous "royal" revelries. In the early 1900's the island's name became synonymous with the moneyed and artistic elite who began to arrive on Capri’s shores. This was the time when, on the coast of Anacapri, the Grotta Azzurra was "discovered", adding yet another attraction to the island's long list of stunningly beautiful sites.

 
The Grand Hotel Vesuvio, built and furnished in a modern style, is located in a charming position, overlooking the enchanting Bay of Naples and right opposite Vesuvius. The hotel offers large swimming pools with separate section for children, beautiful gardens with extensive lemon and orange groves, wide lounges and a beautiful restaurant and bar with gorgeous terraces overlooking the Mediterranean sea.
 
Overlooking the panorama that has inspired visitors for centuries is Rome's most prestigious address – the Rome Cavalieri Hotel. Though only minutes from the city's great monuments, the Rome Cavalieri has the tranquility of an oasis. Enclosed in fifteen acres of lush Mediterranean parklands, this luxury Hotel is a calm retreat in the heart of the Eternal City, an elegant refuge where time slows and hearts quicken.
