Roccaraso is a small town located in Abruzzo and is one of the most beautiful holiday resorts that arise in this Italian region. If you love skiing and nature, you must also visit Roccaraso in winter.



The well-known capital of Lombardy deserves to be visited at any time of the year, but in winter it takes on particular colors and shades that make it unique. The Christmas period in Milan is one of the most magical, but in general winter is the ideal time to visit this city because it is less crowded with tourists.



Rovereto is the second largest city by population in the Province of Trento in Trentino Alto Adige. Unlike Trento, however, this small town has a more refined beauty and offers naturalistic views and cultural environments that make it a destination to visit absolutely in the winter period.

Livigno is a Lombard municipality known for being an Italian duty-free zone. It is not a very easy town to reach especially in winter, but it is a place to visit not only for the low prices, but also for the beauty of the landscape and the ski slopes.


The city of Romeo and Juliet in winter is filled with scents and colors that make it a true jewel of the Veneto. Visiting Verona in winter can be an idea to avoid the crowds of tourists at other times of the year.



This beautiful Tuscan city is rich in art and culture but in winter it becomes a special place, especially during Christmas. Visit Arezzo in the winter and discover the events that take place here and all it has to offer.



Rome is a city that can be visited all year round, but everyone is used to visiting it in spring and summer. Our suggestion is: why not visit it in winter and enjoy a more temperate climate and shades of this city that cannot be seen at other times of the year? Do it, we suggest it and ... not just at Christmas!



Naples is also a city known to all, but even in this case we tend to visit it in summer or spring. And try the winter to see how this city transforms? Believe what we are telling you: the colors (especially under Christmas), the scents and the atmosphere of the Naples winter are a magical experience to savor.
