    15 Contemporary Italian Writers You Should Read (who aren’t Elena Ferrante)

    Elena Ferrante’s success is more than well-deserved, but don’t forget that there are lots of other great Italian novelists out there. We’ve put together a list of our favourites here.

  • Ten Things to do In Rimini

    Rimini has such a large array of great things to do and see, that it’s hard to boil it down to a simple ‘best of’ list, but at the same time Rimini works brilliantly as a short-trip destination so we’ve put on our thinking hats, and narrowed down the choices to what we think are […]

  • Rimini’s Roman Ruins

    Rimini has some of the best preserved Roman ruins that you’ll find anywhere in Italy, with at least three major monuments that you absolutely must see. It’s no surprise, given that the city was founded by the Romans (under the name Ariminum) as they expanded their empire over the Appenines and into the Po river […]

  • Rimini, when is the best time to go?

    When is the best time to visit Rimini? That’s a good question, and not as easy to answer as it may sound. Certainly the high tourist season is July/August, and in terms of events that’s when the majority are scheduled. There are plenty of people, though, who will recommend you avoid the city in those […]

  • Bologna Nighlife

    Nightlife in Bologna

    Nightlife in Bologna is vibrant, but often underground (quite literally in the case of a number of clubs!). The best places to go are spread by word of mouth (and increasingly Social Media). Because it’s a university town, with a very young population you’re spoilt for choice – whether you want to go to a […]

  • 10 of the best hotels in Bologna City Centre

    There are loads of hotels in Bologna’s city centre – of differing quality, convenience and reputation. For years Bologna has, wrongly, been considered simply a travel hub rather than a place to visit in its own right, and because of its extensive road and railway network there are lots of top class hotels outside the […]

  • Bologna's Sala Borsa, Piazza Nettuno

    The Sala Borsa – a cultural oasis

    Bologna’s Sala Borsa, the old city stock exchange, is a must see, in part because of its art nouveau architecture, in part because of its roman ruins in the basement, and in part simply because it’s a buzzing cultural hotspot of the city, with exhibitions, the main library, coffee shop (and bathroom and baby-changing facilities) […]

  • The world’s largest rock band, play more than just Foo Fighters

    Last year the Rockin’ 1000 hit the headlines when they gathered together in a field outside Cesena in Italy, to play a huge group version of the Foo Fighters Learning to Fly. It was an impassioned gesture to get the band to come and play in this small town in the Emilia-Romagna province of Italy […]

  • The Synthetic Public Ideology of Putin’s Russia

    Situated adjacent to the Crimean Parliament building in Simferopol, the newly rebuilt Cathedral of Saint Alexander Nevsky is a magnificent structure. Gilded onion-domes, Greco-Roman columns and pediments – it looks every bit as classy as a well financed Orthodox cathedral should be. On entering, a question occurs to me, however – why are the icons […]
