Portafortuna: Special Destinations
Please click on a number on the map, or make a selection below to visit one of our favorite places.
|1) South Tyrol (Italy)|
The beautiful alpine region of northern Italy, known for its great skiing in the winter, relaxing spas, marvelous year-round hiking trails, and the magnificent Dolomite mountains.
Europeans have come to this area for centuries to enjoy its natural wonders. Americans are only now beginning to discover this European gem.
|2) Alsace (France) |
Land of castles and cathedrals, mountains and vineyards, picturesque villages, warm people, great food and a lot of history. Another destination that the clever Europeans have kept a secret from the American tourists as long as possible. We've been there several times and always have the desire to return for more.
All the best of the English countryside and small villages.
|4) Cinque Terre (Italy)|
Charming fishing villages on the Italian Riviera, with great hiking trails and incredible seafood.
This is not an undiscovered gem, of course, but we try to show some sights you might not see in the mainstream travel guides.
