The tiny fishing village of just 500 people is one of the hottest spots on the Italian Riviera. Located a stone’s throw from Genoa, it is the luxurious answer to the rustic villages of Italy: the charming streets are full of expensive international boutiques, gourmet restaurants and some of the most sought-after verandas all over the Mediterranean. Portofino has been well on the agenda since the late 19th century when it became a favorite resort of northern European aristocrats and by the 1950s the village had filled up impressive villas, restaurants and cafes. Keep in mind that because the village receives a disproportionately large number of visitors in terms of size and capabilities, local authorities often limit access to it. That’s why you prefer to visit it in off-peak periods to enjoy it without overcrowding.

Santa Lucia, Caribbean
It has been for centuries the object of the desire for the French and the English.

Santa Lucia has something else: its mountainous hinterland is drowned in tropical forests that are a paradise for lovers of hiking in the volcanic mountains. The island is full of life. In Castro’s capital, car noise is mixed with the reggae that usually plays in the bass, while smells of barbecues loaded with seafood squeeze our nose. And of course we don’t forget the that rum cocktails.
Navy Pier, Chicago
The length of a kilometer-long pier on the shores of Lake Michigan is undoubtedly the best of the city’s sights and one of the most famous of the United States. It was built in 1916 by architect Daniel Burnham for commercial purposes but also as a recreation area for the locals who were transported there by the special tram line that operated. Today, it is a huge recreation area with amusement parks, cinemas, restaurants, cafes and fireworks shows every Wednesday and Saturday night in the summer, and the national anniversary of July 4 and New Year’s Eve.
