Eyewitnesses about the city of Naples

A year ago, I was unexpectedly offered three days to go to Naples. Of course, it is impossible to get to know this city in such a short line, unless you get a general impression of it. But this is enough for the first time. I hope that somehow I get there again. The journey began as usual with an airplane. But the sky that day was special. My friends and I could not tear myself away from the windows, now and then clicked the shutters of our cameras to capture amazing clouds that we thought were amazing. Naples met us with rain. It was the second half of October, at this time in the south of Italy it was still quite warm.

But we were not lucky, even the Neapolitans themselves did not remember such a cold in October. But then we saw a unique phenomenon – snow on Mount Vesuvius. Continue reading

The second life of Castello di Velona in Montalcino

After two years of reconstruction, the unique Castello di Velona – Tuscan Resort and Spa hotel opens. It’s probably hard to find the best way to “experience” Tuscany: a luxurious spa hotel located in an 11th-century castle in the Orcha Valley, near Siena and very close to Montalcino, a village known around the world for the legendary Brunello di Montalcino wine produced here. Castello di Velona is a real medieval fortress of the 11th century.

To this day, a watch tower of the 12th century was preserved, a witness to the clashes between the Florentine and Siena republics. The main building was built during the Late Renaissance, when the castle was rebuilt into a residence villa. At the same time, the castle was imprinted on the fresco maps of Ignazio Danti in the Vatican – documents evidencing this are stored in the local library. Buildings deep in the castle appeared later, forming a patio-scene. Continue reading
