Casa Angelina with the views of the Gulf of Salerno among the Top 10 luxury rooms with a view

Casa Angelina with the views of the Gulf of Salerno among the Top 10 luxury rooms with a view | Italia Mia | Scoop.it

There’s nothing better than rolling over and waking up to a stunning view of our beautiful world. 

Casa Angelina and its unparalleled views of the Gulf of Salerno is without doubt one of the best kept secrets of Italy’s Amalfi Coast. Perched on the cliff face of the town of Praiano, the chic white décor of Casa Angelina acts as an intensifier for the azure ocean and contrasts the striking cliffs behind giving a remarkable crisp view through all its windows and doors.  Perfect cliff-facing positioning guarantees a serene suntrap for the ultimate way to relax in the sea breeze. Art aficionados will love the Murano glass decorations and bold contemporary art juxtaposing the interiors.  You’ll quite literally be living la dolce vita in the Amalfi.

The romance of one and the magical mystery of the other are guaranteed to make for an enchanting week away. [...]

Italian Food Forever » Castelluccio And The Piano Grande 2014

Italian Food Forever » Castelluccio And The Piano Grande 2014 | Italia Mia | Scoop.it

Every year we try and head over to Castelluccio where the famous lentils of Umbria are grown. One of the most famous centerpieces of the area is the Piano Grande, a huge 16 square kilometer plain surrounded by the barren Sibillini mountain range that once was a glacier lake. This entire area falls in the Parco Nazionale dei Monti Sibillini, one of the most recently established Italian national parks, which is divided between Le Marche and Umbria. The Piano Grande attracts tourists from across the globe every spring and summer when the plains are covered in a breathtaking abundance of wildflowers called the fioritura. This area is also responsible for growing Umbria’s famous lentils, Lenticchie di Castelluccio, which are named for the small village that overlooks the plains. [...]

The itinerary starts from Venice Square, (Piazza Venezia) that you can easily reach by bus from Termini Train Station.

At the beginning of the street, on the left, there's the Mercato Traiano, designed by Apollodorus of Damascus in 107 BC. The building is split into multiple floors and was originally intended for commercial and public functions. Walking down the main street you’ll arrive in front of the Roman Forum, the old Republican square considered a symbolic place by Roman emperors. After the ancient forum go straight to the Roman Colosseum, the most recognizable monument of Rome, also known as the Anfiteatro Flavio. We suggest you to enter inside to admire the magnificence of the place and imagine what it looked like when the gladiators were struggle in. From the Colosseum you can also see the Palatine Hill, an archeological area that contains the old Emperor's residences, arches and temples. Take Via Celio Vibenna and continue along Via di San Gregorio. Continuing down the street for about 800 meters you get to Circus Maximus, the oldest Roman stadium, a place where ancient competitions and sports events were held. Making the rounds of the stadium arriving at the south end, you'll find the Temple of Ercules and the Arch of Janus both magnificent examples of classical Roman architecture. Continuing up Via del Teatro Marcello on your left you'll see the Theater of Marcellus which was the largest theater in ancient Rome.
