The Most Beautiful Villages in Basilicata
These three gems are among a group of 200 destinations chosen by an association called I Borghi Piu Belli d’Italia. These “borghi” are selected not only for their beauty, but also because they showcase cultural and culinary traditions. One of the towns evening has a breathtaking zipline.

Rome’s New Food Market
A new foodie haven, Mercato Centrale Roma (Rome Central Market), has opened in Rome’s main train station — Termini bringing delicious food (including Roman classics) and drink to Romans and travelers.

Spend The Night on A Wild Prison Island
There’s a tiny island off the coast of Sardinia where no one has lived and there has been no construction for more than 100 years. This beautiful, wild island was once a prison island. Now the barracks have been turned into no-frills accommodations and the island is a great escape from the real world.
