Hidden world: Italy's secret attractions open their doors - CNN.com | East Coast Limousine Service | Scoop.it

Italy is crammed with locked away secret treasures.

As rich in history and charm as the country's more famous attractions, these places are normally off-limits to the public because they're in private hands or are too precious.

But on March 21-22 there's the chance to visit hundreds of these hidden gems as part of an annual "Spring Days" open weekend organized by Italian heritage group Fondo Ambiente Italiano.

Entrance is free and there are guided tours by experts, students and volunteers.

Here's a roundup of the most quirky, spooky and stunning places.

As Federica Trivelli enters one of her four pig sties, the animals rush about her, honking with pleasure. She says that even if someone were to blindfold her she would know which pigs in La Piccola Fattoria degli Animali or the Little Animal Farm - were talking to her. [...]

Mariano Pallottini's curator insight, November 23, 2014 12:28 PM

Pizza Hut has just started a major rebranding effort. Headlined the “Flavor of Now,” the campaign aims to give a much-needed boost to Pizza Hut’s U.S. business by wooing customers with dozens of new pizza options.  The best of the lot is probably the one set in Sorrento, where we watch as a bunch of older Italian people express shock, indignation, and just plain confusion at a variety of Pizza Hut’s new pizza offerings. “Participants were paid, but still don't like change”  [source]

Italy's Best Gelato

Italy's Best Gelato | East Coast Limousine Service | Scoop.it

Just because you’re eating gelato in Italy doesn’t automatically mean it’s authentic or even any good. Unfortunately, many gelaterias continue to pass off subpar, factory-made junk as the real deal, so we have a guide to help you with that. That said, Italy still abounds with artisans who serve up fresh, handmade, all-natural gelato daily. Below, we’ve handpicked the places where you’ll find the best gelato in Italy, from Rome to Milan to Florence (where gelato was created).

4 Hidden Italian Treats To Discover This Summer

4 Hidden Italian Treats To Discover This Summer | East Coast Limousine Service | Scoop.it

There is no such thing as Italy. Doesn’t exist. I don’t care what they say – it’s not a country. Most countries have little differences that seem big to them and small to outsiders, but saying you’re going to Italy is like saying you’re going to America. Which America? Alaska or Honolulu? I rarely plan to go, always assuming Italy will be there waiting for me in later years, but thankfully keep ending up back there through work or the generosity of friends. That has meant staying in little residential apartments in Alghero, voluptuous villas in the Tuscan hills, three-star superstars in Rome, hotels run by concierges in Florence, and everything from a caravan on the Amalfi cliffs to what might be the world’s greatest hotel by Lake Garda. In just over a year last year that meant too many aqueducts and tunnels to Bologna, Lombardy, Liguria, Florence, Venice, to Shakespeare’s Verona and Mantua, The Sopranos Naples and the leftover bits of di Lampedusa’s Sicily, and the more I saw, the less I bought it as a country.

Rome: Where to find the best summer nightlife

Rome: Where to find the best summer nightlife | East Coast Limousine Service | Scoop.it

Rome seems designed for summer. Unlike business-oriented Milan, which melts in the heat, the Eternal City comes into its own between mid-June and early September when the piazzas and vicoli (cobbled lanes) of the centre become open-air living rooms once the cool of the evening has descended, while concerts and foodie events pop up all over. August is traditionally the month when Rome empties as locals flee to the beach – but the summer movida continues, making this a good time to visit if you can take the plus-30C daytime temperatures.
