I live in Sanremo ,Italy. I would like to exchange suggestions and advices on countries and places to visit, nice walks in citycenter or in the wood, small but amazing cities, tipical restaurants or bars, and whatever you may think is a must to do in that place.
I didn't go yet to US, Far East or Africa. But I will. I wandered for some time in France, UK, Switzerland, Austria, South Germany.
I really appreciated also Budapest, Hungary; Wien, Austria; Prague, Czech Republic; Istanbul, Turkey. It's so easy and enjoyable to walk all the day long along the old streets, find by accident a weird shop, meet interesting people and talk about something, sharing a beer.
Since I live in a city on the seaside, I especially appreciate cities with a river flowing in the middle, with ancient river-banks, evocative woodmade bridges, romantic small squares where to find a good bistrot for a coffee or a tee.
Maybe the best place ever for that is Venice, Italy, but we have to move on and discover the rest of the world, isn't it?
I really get mad finding out new tipical dishes, especially concerning meat. I'm not the predictable italian tourist, trying for a while local food and immediately shifting to the nearest italian restaurant. I can have an italian meal at home. Since I travelled to another country, I guess I am supposed to live for a while according to the locals' way of life.

The city is enjoyable in every time of the day. The traffic is moderate, the metro is not crowdy. People is friendly and easy. It is the right place for a cultural holiday, a wellness trip, a club addict trip. Or all of them in the same time, if you dare.
St Jean Cap Ferrat, France
It's a marvellous place not far away from Sanremo, something like a 40 minutes drive. In my opinion, this is one of the best seaview ever. When you follow the moyenne corniche (french name), a panorama route up oin the hill between Montecarlo and Nice, you will meet astounding views, evocative woods and breathtaking villas, enjoyable small beaches surrounded by pinetrees. A perfect atmosphere leading you to rent a flat and move there permanently.
The picture down here is the japanese corner in the garden surrounding Villa Ephrussi-Rotschild, maybe the best place to visit in South France, together to St. Paul de Vence and Eze Village nearby.
That's the garden surrounding our house. We are quite proud of it, since a lot of gardening work all year long is needed to maintain it like that. But I guess it worths the effort, isn't it?
Who has ever seen this view before? It is portrayed in a 1884 oil painting by Claude Monet. The village is Dolceacqua, the right place for mushrooms dishes, Rossese red wine and hot spot for the natural trekking addict. I love this place. It is romantic together with your girlfriend, or fun wandering for old wine canteens with you friends.
Old Bussana, Italy
Magic atmosphere in this village of rebel artists; some open air restaurants and a lot of lanes and alleys to explore, art shops and astonishing views on the valley, the Mediterranean sea and the high mountains behind Sanremo.
Madonna di Campiglio, Italy
Yes, I know, this is not the ultimate place to go for a cultural or "bigcitylife" holiday. But it's a good mixture of exciting snowy slopes and cool disco clubs at night. And all this without moving your car.
