Where I always return

The reason of my last trip in Rome was an opera production. Sofia Coppola directed “La Traviata” for the recently renovated Teatro dell’Opera di Roma, while all costumes where signed by Valentino. Once again we stayed at Hotel Quirinale (impossible to forget its garden from my last trip there), which is so conveniently located next to the Opera house. Had the best carbonara at Roscioli. Did some serious shopping. Ate tons of ice cream. Walked around for hours. Enjoyed an aperitivo at Hotel de Russie. Always a pleasure to be a tourist in Rome.

summer extension

It has been nothing of an autumn since the 1st of September so, a few days ago, I took the opportunity to pamper myself with something like a holidays extension at Costa Navarino. Relaxation overload in a magnificent location on the west coast of Peloponese, that was quite a surprise for me, since I didn’t know the resort’s highlight: an immense beach with thin, blonde sand and crystal clear water. Could I possibly ask for more? I did actually. I made a good use of the Anazoe Spa, I ate gigantic breakfasts, Ι picked lavender for my winter closets and slept for ours on white crisp sheets, feeling as we speak, more than ready to confront the weather change.
