1. Santuario Madonna della Corona.
Built right into a vertical cliff face on Italy’s Mount Baldo,
the Santuario Madonna della Corona (Sanctuary of the Lady of the Crown)
looks as though it is nearly suspended in mid-air.
The church does not actually hang on the sheer face but instead
sits on a thin rock shelf that can only be reached by a thin path.
Originally the secluded shelf was home to a hermitage where holy
men could come for silent reflection, completely removed from the
rest of the world. The actual church was built in 1530 and the site
became a chapel for anyone wanting to pay pilgrimage and
contemplate the nature of God in peace.
The main chapel saw a number of changes over the ensuing
centuries growing larger
and at one point having a larger church built over the existing one.
Thanks to its relative inaccessibility the church was never totally destroyed or desecrated
and managed to survive into the 20th century, crumbling a bit but intact.
In the 1970s an Italian architect tore down much of the aging structure and built it back up,
taking care to retain as many important artistic flourishes as possible.
Today the once treacherous mountain path to the
chapel has been modernized and the remarkable
church is still a popular pilgrimage site for visitors
coming to see the Scala Santa, a replica of the stairs
to Pilate’s palace that Jesus ascended before he was
condemned to be crucified.
Oh and also to see a church cling to a cliff like it is in hiding.
2. Positano, Amalfi Coast.
Once a vital part of a mighty sea power,
Positano is today a sophisticated resort on the central Amalfi Coast.
Moorish-style architecture rises up steep slopes that gaze out on the Sirenuse Islands.
Smart boutiques, selling fashions for visitors to display on Grand Beach, abound in the village.
And it’s a great base for exploring the area you can easily travel by boat to Capri,
Ischia and the Grotta dello Smeraldo cave.
3. Thaiti Cala Coticcio Caprera.
Tahiti is in Sardinia!
This is the name given to one of the most popular symbols of the Maddalena Archipelago,
on the northwestern extremity of Sardinia:
fine sand and a turquoise sea with surrounding rose-coloured cliffs and Mediterranean scrub
It is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful little coves in
the Maddalena National Park. The beach of Cala Coticcio
is located on the northeastern part of the island
of Caprera, the second largest island of the archipelago,
in front of the Scoglio Murru. It has fine, almost dazzling
white sand and the colours of the crystal clear sea are
framed by rose-coloured rock and the shrubs of the
The beach is a real natural pool, also known as ‘Tahiti’.
It is environmentally protected and can be reached via sea,
in boats with organized trips around the archipelago and also via land,
along a partially unpaved trekking trail through the rocks.
This is a tiring walk, requiring gym shoes and a good supply of water,
but at the end of the last, rather steep part of it,
you will be rewarded by the sight of the iridescent reflections of the sea.
You will be able to admire the stunning seascape,
with its bright colours and background of impressive rocks,
and enjoy relaxing in the peace and quiet it offers you.
Then you can delve deep into the nature reserve:
an authentic aquarium with numerous species of fish and starfish.
It is ideal for snorkelling enthusiasts.
along the coast of Caprera. Not far away, you can visit
Cala Portese (or Cala dei Due Mari), another source
of pride for the island, and the splendid Spiaggia del
Relitto(Beach of the Shipwreck), featuring fine white
sand and the skeleton of an ancient ship on the shore.
To the west, don’t miss out on the blue waters of Cala Napoletana,
the wild nature of Cala Garibaldi and the stretch of light sand in Cala Serena.
After diving into this haven, still in Caprera,
a visit to the place in which the Hero of Two Worlds resided during the last 26 years of his life
is a must: the Compendio diGiuseppe Garibaldi with its Casa Bianca
(White House) is one of the most frequently visited museums in Italy.
4. Hotel Ristorante Grotta Palazzese
professing you can romantically dine in a candlelit cave
overlooking the Adriatic Sea. The allure of that photo, a
restaurant set in an unexpected location – who wouldn’t
want to go there? I certainly did. It’s the Grotta
Palazzese Summer Restaurant and it’s located in a hotel by
the same name in Polignano a Mare in the Puglia region of

5. Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol
The Trentino-Alto Adige, or South Tyrol, region is Italy’s northernmost region.
It’s mountainous and has lots of rivers and lakes to explore.
Medieval towns and castles dot the region and it’s a great place to go
for Christmas markets because of the Austrian influence.
The A22 Autostrada (the line shown on the map) runs through the center of the region
from the Brenner pass in the north and continues south to Verona and beyond.
A major rail line also runs near the autostrada.
To the north of Trentino-Alto Adige is Austria.
A small section of Switzerland abuts the region’s northwest corner.
To the east is the Veneto region, and to the west is Lombardy and the Lakes region.
Provinces of the Trentino Alto Adige Region
The Trentino-Alto Adige region is broken into two provinces.
The southern province of Trentino is mostly Italian speaking,
while in the northern province of the Alto Adige, called Sudtirol
or the South Tyrol, the inhabitants speak mostly German and towns have both an Italian
and a German name.
The South Tyrol was part of Austria-Hungary before being annexed by Italy in 1919.
Both provinces are bordered by mountains and have good opportunities for skiing
and winter sports as well as mountain hiking from late spring through early fall.
Capri, an island in Italy’s Bay of Naples, is famed for its rugged landscape,
upscale hotels and shopping, from designer fashions to limoncello and handmade leather sandals.
One of its best-known natural sites is the Blue Grotto,
a dark cavern where the sea glows electric blue,
the result of sunlight passing through an underwater cave.
Capri is beautiful – seriously beautiful.
There’s barely a grubby building or untended garden
to blemish the splendour.
Steep cliffs rise majestically from an impossibly blue
sea; elegant villas drip with wisteria and bougainvillea;
even the trees seem to be carefully manicured.
Long a preserve of celebrities and the super-rich, this small,
precipitous island off the west end of the Sorrento
Peninsula has a tangible deluxe feel. Your credit card can
get a lot of exercise in its expensive restaurants and
museum-quality jewellery shops – a cappuccino alone can
cost €7. But, regardless of this, Capri is worth visiting,
whatever your budget. Glide silently up craggy Monte
Solaro on a chairlift. Relive erstwhile poetic glories in Villa
Lysis. Find a quiet space in the sinuous lanes of Anacapri.
In the process, you’ll enjoy some sublime moments.
The spectacular sunsets along our exquisite coastline are known and adored worldwide,

8. Lago di Molveno
Molveno is the ideal place for nature lovers and those
interested in culture and history. The crystal-clear waters of
Lake Molveno reflect the peaks of the surrounding Brenta
Dolomites and cultural treasures, such as the local water mill
(still working!) or the 13th century San Vigilio church,
are waiting to be discovered.
Summer turns Molveno into a great place for swimming,
windsurfing, canyoning, sailing or fishing – not to forget the
lovely rowboat trips across the lake.
At the lakeside there is a fantastic campsite and Molveno also offers
a multifunctional centre with volley and basket fields,
In winter it offers numerous opportunities to sports
enthusiasts and nature lovers alike.
