About Italy

Italy also is home to many castles… Opera has its roots in Italy and many famous operas — including “Aida” and “La Traviata,” both by Giuseppe Verdi, and “Pagliacci” by Ruggero Leoncavallo — were written in Italian and are still performed in the native language. Italy is also home to a number of world-renowned fashion houses, including Armani, Gucci, Valentino, Cavalli, Versace and Prada.

Italian cuisine has influenced food culture around the world and is viewed as a form of art by many. Wine, cheese and pasta are important part of Italian meals. For Italians, food isn’t just nourishment, it is life.”Family gatherings are frequent and often centred around food and the extended networks of families,” said Wagner. Last but not least, Italy is the country of the thousands little towns and villages, all different and to be discovered for their art, history, traditions and human heritage.

Did you know this fact?

Scotland is home to the world’s first ever documented “monster hunt”. In the year 565 AD, the Irish missionary Saint Columba reportedly encountered the Loch Ness Monster, known affectionately as “Nessie”. While the legend of Nessie continues to captivate the imaginations of people worldwide, it was in Scotland that the myth first took root, adding to the country’s rich tapestry of folklore and mystery.

About Scotland

Culturally too Scotland punches above its weight, from the poetry of Robert Burns to the modern crime fiction of Ian Rankin or even the songs of Emeli Sandé, Scotland’s cultural exports to the world are many and appreciated as much as the famous whisky, tweed and tartan. You certainly can’t beat reading Burns’ poems in the village where he was born or enjoying an Inspector Rebus novel in Rankin’s own Edinburgh pubs, or catching the latest Scottish bands at a music festival. Museums like Dundee’s Discovery Point and V&A, Glasgow’s Kelvingrove and Aberdeen’s Maritime Museum celebrate the enormous influence of Scottish engineers, inventors, artists, explorers and writers and in shaping the modern world. Discover why, as one historian put it, this is the country that invented the modern world.
Scotland, land of Celtic myth, history and breath-taking beauty, has countless treasures crammed into its relatively compact territory – from big skies to ancient architecture, from spectacular wildlife to superb seafood and to top it all incredibly friendly, hospitable and down-to-earth people.

Outside the ancient and beautiful UNESCO World heritage capital city, Edinburgh, and other urban centres like Glasgow, once home to the largest shipping industry in the world but now a lively city of art, culture, great dining and bars, the visitor is entranced by mountains glistening with the silver threads of icy rivers and waterfalls tumbling from highlands to lowlands.

Scotland has some of the last significant wilderness areas left in Western Europe. Here you can see golden eagles soar above the lochs and mountains of the northern Highlands, watch minke whales off the coast of Mull and spot otters tumbling in the kelp along the shores of the Outer Hebrides. It is also an adventure playground: you can tramp the sub-arctic tundra plateau of the Cairngorms, sea kayak among the seal-haunted mystic isles of the Outer Hebrides, mountain bike on world-class trails near Scotland’s highest mountain, trek along the valley or mountain trails and balance along tightrope narrow ridges between the peaks of the great Cuillins on Skye.

Edinburgh

The capital of Scotland which holds two UNESCO designations for its medieval Old Town and its well-planned Georgian New Town. There are so many things to do and see, like a visit to the iconic castle, the world’s largest monument to a writer, Scotland’s crown jewels, world-class art, a walk through the underground to explore the city’s medieval past, climbing an extinct volcano known as Arthur’s Seat, and many more. Don’t miss having one of the world-famous whiskys while in town.

Loch Lomond & The Trossachs

The beautiful shores of Loch Lomond have become legend in Scotland. Britain’s largest lake, just a short drive northwest of Glasgow, enchants with myths, dreamlike landscape, and fabulous hiking trails. One will find here the Loch Lomond Shores, home to a shopping mall with local crafts, restaurants, bike and boat rentals, as well as a farmers market. It is also home to the Loch Lomond SEA LIFE Aquarium.

Glasgow

Scotland’s largest city impresses with many historical sites, green parks and spaces, a large number of Charles Rennie Mackintosh buildings, amazing street art, and a thriving live music scene. Next to the famous George Square and the city chambers, the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is particularly worth seeing. Opened in 1901 already, it is the UK’s most visited museum outside of London. The slogan, “People Make Glasgow”, really does fit the place, as Glasgow was rates as the friendliest city in 2014.

Loch Ness and Caledonian Canal

Famous for its mythical monster “Nessie”, Loch Ness is part of a waterway connecting the east and west coasts of Scotland. The area with the canal and three other lochs is surrounded by the beautiful Highlands scenery, but there is nothing more scenic than Loch Ness itself, with the ancient ruins of Urquhart Castle on its hillside. One can easily drive here from Inverness.

Cairngorm National Park

Located in the Scottish Highlands, this is the UK’s largest National Park. The region got his name from the Scottish Gaelic phrase “Cairn na Gorms”, which means “blue mountains”. Rivers, deep blue mountain lakes, the Grampian Mountains, mystical moors, and dense forests have shaped this breathtaking natural backdrop. The ideal place for ramble walks or extensive hikes, watersports, snowsports, and wildlife watching.

Isle of Skye and the Inner Hebrides

The largest of Scotland’s inner islands, the Isle of Skye, is a paradise for nature lovers and ramblers. Remarkable is the diversity of the landscape, that reaches from green valleys, sandy beaches, rushing waterfalls, caves, to lonely glens. But also the other islands are in no way inferior – Iona, for example, is considered Scotland’s “Cradle of Christianity” and houses Scotland’s oldest Christian cemetery, with graves of more than 60 Scottish kings, including Macbeth.

St. Andrews Golf Club

As some may not know, the game of golf is an invention from Scotland. It is therefore not surprising that the country houses some iconic golf courses, such as the much revered Royal and Ancient Golf Club located in historic St. Andrews. This place was founded in 1750 already and still hosts regularly the famous British Open. You may be lucky and win one of the demanded tea times as some spaces are kept available by lottery two days in advance. Worth seeing are the majestic Clubhouse as well as the British Golf Museum.

Fort William & Ben Nevis

Britain’s tallest mountain, Ben Nevis, is best to explore from the picturesque town of Fort William. It is well worth taking the 2.5 hours hike to the top where one can enjoy spectacular views over the Scottish Highlands and as far as Ireland. The coastal town of Fort William is also starting point of famous The Jacobite steam train which follows the West Highland Line over the spectacular Glenfinnan Viaduct and made itself a name by the Harry Potter movies.

The Northern Highlands

You can’t visit Scotland without having been to the Highlands. A mystic landscape with a long history, at once violent and romantic. Spread over this outstanding natural beauty are tiny little villages and towns, such as the pretty coastal village of Dornoch or John o’Groats where a world-famous sign proclaims the northernmost point of Britain. One can explore this northern tip of Scotland by following the scenic route of North Coast 500 (or NC500).

Robbie Burns Heritage Trail

The country’s most famous son, the poet Robbie Burns, can be traced along the Burns Heritage Trail which crosses some of Scotland’s most beautiful parts. One can visit the Robert Burn Birthplace Museum in Alloway, where there is also the perfectly preserved thatched house in which he was born and spent much of his childhood. The tour heads south to Dumfries, home of the Robert Burns House where he spent the last four years of his life, and the St. Michael’s Churchyard with his final resting place.
