Wishing to warm-up our bones in this cold winter we chose to have a quick tour of Marrakech, the fascinating Morocco's town, a unique place with its suq and warm colors...I hope to have catched its soul. We had a tour of the town and an excursion in Ourika valley, near the Atlas mountains. (38 photos)

A cuban tale by Giorgio Mercuri (giorgimer) Gold Star Critiquer/Silver Workshop Editor/Gold Note Writer [C: 3430 W: 12 N: 2250] (35017) :: 2009-03-13 - 2009-03-23 :: 2533 Views

Cuba: an incredible place, where time seems to be stopped since half a century and light and colors are stunning. It's lovable to discover its people, its towns, its sea. Our trip started in The Havana, the beautiful colonial capital, UNESCO world heritage. Then we moved to Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Sancti Spiritus, Santa Clara and the Vinales Valley. We spent last days in the island of Cayo Levisa. (62 photos)

A long weekend in Valencia gave us the opportunity to enjoy first of all its nice climate, even in winter. Then we loved to walk in its beautiful streets and monument. We finally remained speechless in front of the wonderful futuristic architecture created in the city of Arts and Science, most of which were designed by Santiago Calatrava, one of our favorites modern architects.

Sicilian days by Giorgio Mercuri (giorgimer) Gold Star Critiquer/Silver Workshop Editor/Gold Note Writer [C: 3430 W: 12 N: 2250] (35017) :: 2007-08-31 - 2007-09-14 :: 2536 Views

A magical island of sun and history.
This was my impression visiting the incredible Sicily.
We made a two weeks tour, we arrived in Palermo by plane and then rented a car. After spending two days in Palermo we started our tour to the west and made the tour of the entire coastline (including some stops in the internal area), arriving in Palermo airport after 2.260 Kms.
I have no words to explain how much I loved everything, but I can give you and idea by telling you that I took more than 1.350 pictures... (98 photos)

Where italian south begins there's a little colored pearl. Termoli has a very interesting historical downtown. I spent a sunny day there, I wanna share with you all my emotions. (10 photos)

In the north of Lombardia region, in a part of Valtellina area included in Val Masino there's a little treasure to discover. A valley with impressive rocks called "the little Yosemite" for it's similarities with the well known US park. There are very nice rural homes and an incredibly clear river. The basic trek is very easy and we moved there from Milan and stayed just one day. (7 photos)
