This past winter we spent some time in Tuscany during our Italy road trip. Winter was a great time to visit because it wasn't as crowded as in the summer. It could be chilly at times, but the sun still shone brightly most days. Here are three Tuscan hill towns we thought deserved a mention.
As a conclusion to our three-part Provence series, we bring you four villages in the Luberon, each with their own charm and unique histories. Since we travelled there in the winter, we had some not-so-ideal weather on some days, but we made the best of the sunny days we did have.
We recently had the pleasure of staying in the Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur region of France, and even though we saw a lot of villages during our stay, we barely scratched the surface! There are so many small towns and villages in Provence, especially in the Luberon.
Ah, Montmartre, whether you are checking it out because the guidebooks tell you to, because of the movie "Amélie", because you are into art history, or because of a certain movie starring Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor, you are in for a treat if you visit this part of the city properly.
As I mentioned in my previous article about the Scottish Highlands, yes we visited Edinburgh, but we very much appreciated the highlands more. Honesty is our most important policy at Destination: Overlooked, and we can’t pretend travelling is all sunshine and rainbows all the time. Although that would be cool.
This December we visited Lake Como, and while spring and summer are definitely more desirable seasons to go due to the weather, we still enjoyed our time and our beautiful view from our apartment balcony.
