Need to escape!?

Weekend coming and with the cold that is starting here is nothing better than to "escape" to a tranquil place and beautiful!
They are small towns or villages on top of mountains and hills, but all united by one common denominator, the traces of the past and good food ...

Palazzo ducale di urbino



a city rich in monuments, streets and squares of incomparable beauty.
Here you can also see the intense and enigmatic work of Raphael, "La muta". But to visit the home of the artist, you have to go to the street that bears his name.

After the art and culture is a time of good food of typical dishes from the restaurant Valdinoci (via Mount Avorio 43 tel. 0722345180) prepared with products of the farm owners.
Where to stay:
Agriturismo B & B Ca 'Giovanni Country Resort (via san lorenzo in solfinelli, 5 tel.072234543,  the couple with breakfast € 80,00)

fortezza de Sarzanello

It seems of city of Athens miniature!
Between Tuscany  and Liguria is manifested in the number of antique shops, craft shops and restaurants surrounded by medieval walls Genoese.

But Sarzana is discovered wandering unhurriedly among the noble buildings, churches and squares.
Deserves a romantic stroll to the fortezza Sarzanello, 2 km from the center. And in return, is a pleasure to stop for coffee and a slice of pie in the historic Gemma (Via Mazzini 21), a bakery in a building of 1500.
Where to stay:
L'hotel santa caterina (via della cisa 3 rd, tel. 0187622015,, couples with breakfast € 120,00)


One of the most beautiful historic sites of the Emilia. On a hill full of fossil shells, which protect the river Arda. Churches, palaces and fortifications denounce the great past of the village, built around an ancient Roman fort which protected the road Fidenza.

But it is forbidden to leave without tasting the food Piacenza, the Trattoria dell'Angiolina (via Canale, 18 tel. 0523806162) is the perfect place to prove crostinis hot with porcini mushrooms and a nice cake dessert of Angiolina, with chocolate and almonds, simply delicious!
Where to stay:
Illica House (via Caolzio Sforza, 47 tel. 3664069000,, couples, breakfast € 130.00)

Need more reasons to escape??
