    Soul-searching trips - Inspiration Italy

    Whoever has seen the film 'Eat, Pray, Love' or any similar one, must have experienced the same wanderlust and the growing desire to set off on a soul-searching journey. When the wanderlust strikes, its enticing call to dive deeper into yourself and explore your thoughts, feelings and the ways you interact with the world may mean that you are only one step away from a one-off life experience. Inspired by the concept of 'Eat, Pray, Love,' and Italy to the same extent, here are our ideas on how to create your own soul-searching trip in this fabulous country! Bella Italia has once more justified its number one position in all things beautiful - countryside, art, culture, and gastronomy.

    Start your journey of spiritual renewal in Florence, the centre and cradle of the Renaissance. Florence goes far beyond an ordinary city - it is a museum and an ode to the Renaissance, a rebirth and re-establishment of anthropocentric values in Europe. Here you can rediscover your own self and be inspired by precious historic monuments of a glorious time in the past, which will help you better understand the value and achievements of humankind. The nearby town of Greve can be the next stop on your journey. Take a walking tour in the hills above Greve and enjoy the solitude broken only by an occasional ancient village or two, and quaint churches on your way. Nothing will ever seem beyond reach or gloomy under the Tuscan sun!

    Italian tricolour is indeed reflected in Italian food, its simplicity but also the richness of flavour. Artisans of minimalism, Italian chefs have gained the worldwide popularity with only three main ingredients - pasta, cheese and tomatoes. You are right - the time has come to indulge in the flavours of Italy, one of its most valuable assets. Decadent as it may be, in addition to the vast variety of its most popular dishes, traditional Italian fare is nothing short of sweet and savoury surprises. Take the time to share a meal, sit at the table with locals who will certainly make you feel very welcome, be moved by their genuine cordiality and experience the true Italian spirit. Street food is very popular and so are street food festivals called 'sagra'. One bonus tip - do not miss Sicily on your travels. You will find the gastronomic calendar of Sicily packed full of amazing food&wine events year-round.We are slowly moving to the 'love' part of our journey. Is it pure coincidence that the capital's name spelled backwards reads 'amor'? Be it as it may, the truth is that many a couple will choose Italy as their honeymoon destination, and the reasons are quite obvious. The language itself sounds like a song, the air is sweet with the citrus scent, and the ancient allure of Rome, Tuscany and coastal towns remains unfailing.

    Finish your journey in Cinque Terre, one of the most romantic places ever, where dramatically looking rocks shelve down into the sea, and are home to a multitude of quaint, colourful houses and Mediterranean herbs. The view is truly spectacular.We have to admit to it - falling in love in Italy is easy. Falling in love with Italy even easier. But don't forget the whole idea of your journey. It is reconnecting with yourself, a spiritual discovery and renewal. It is falling in love with yourself in of the most beautiful places in the world.
