In this issue:

Barbara in Piazza San Marco

In Destinations: Venice is never Off-Season! I have been to Venice in the spring… in the summer… and in the fall, and on each occasion found the crowds to be crushing. Access to the famous sites, even maneuvering through the narrow alleyways required waiting in long lines.  By Barbara Angelakis    Read More...

Doga Indoor Pool Small

In the Spa section: This is a destination that had me exclaiming "Why didn't anyone ever tell me about this before."  Chances are you've never heard of Pamukkale's travertine slopes that tend to overwhelm first-time visitors. Today, Pamukkale is a destination for modern tourists. By Sharon King Hoge     Read More...

Centurion Palace SINA Hotel Group

Also in Hotels & Resorts: The Centurion Palace is located on the Grand Canal between the Basilica Santa Maria della Salute and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection; just a short gondola ride across the canal from Piazza San Marco. The building was known as Palazzo Genovese before its conversion to a hotel. By Barbara Angelakis                        Read More...

 

Sicily Black Grapes on Vine Small

In the Oeno File: I get to taste a lot of wine! Many of the wines I taste are good, a few are outstanding, and there are a few stinkers in there as well. During the year, I sample at least 700 to 900 bottles; numerous samples from some of the best vintners in the world, plus lots of others. By Manos Angelakis  Read More...

Corinthia Budapest Facade Small

In Hotels & Resorts: Loved the feature film, “The Grand Budapest Hotel” ?  I just “lived it.”  The Corinthia, formerly known as the Royal is indeed grand and was the model for the hotel in the film.  But it is smack in the middle of the city, not in the countryside, as depicted.

Montecucco il Boschetto 2011 Reserva Small

Additionally in the Oeno File: Sangiovese is the red grape variety mostly planted in the Maremma and it thrives here as well as some international varieties. Montecucco DOC(G) which is physically situated between Brunello and Morellino, covers the slopes of the Amiata Mountains with the vineyards of 7 communities.
