Italy Travel Notes presents: by Michele De Capitani

Verona, or Veronia, was a city of the Euganei, who were obliged to cede it to the Cenomani (550 BC).

Flashbooking is a growing cheap hostel in Verona and hotels directory specializing in budget accommodation for independent travellers, students, backpackers, families and all the ones that travel on a pocket.

With the conquest of the Valley of the Po the Veronese territory became Roman (about 300 BC). Verona became a Roman colonia in 89 BC, and then a municipium in 49 BC; Verona had the franchise in 59.

Flashbooking is becoming a recognized source of information and services for who loves creating a trip by him/herself and book bed nights securely online.

Why Take an Italy Cruise ?

Italy Travel Notes presents: By John Metcalfe

History, wine, serene beauty, dramatic people and stunning views – an Italy cruise has it all! You can visit the main sites of Italy on a European cruise or a Mediterranean cruise, but to really experience Italy – to really taste it – you need to immerse yourself in everything that Italy has to offer by taking an Italy cruise.

Italy cruises depart from several ports around the country. Many depart from Civitavecchia – the gateway port to Rome. However, to get the full Italy experience it is recommended that an Italy cruise be embarked upon from the ports of Savona or Genoa on the Ligurian Peninsula and taken all the way round to Venice, or vice-versa. This way, you’ll discover that there’s a lot more to Italy than a cruise departing from Civitavecchia would be able to show you!

Great Family Holidays in Italy

Italy Travel Notes presents: Keith Barrett

One of the best things about going on holiday to Italy as a family is that this is such a child-friendly country. Italians tend to have very strong family values and love to welcome other families to their country.

If you happen to be in any Italian town, city or even a large village on a Sunday lunchtime then you are likely to see one of Italy’s most traditional sights – an Italian family sitting down to lunch in a restaurant.

Italy Travel Notes – Great Family Holidays in Italy

For Italians, this event combines two of their favourite things in the world – great food and the company of their family.
