Rather than traversing mountains, rivers, and valleys to get to your sweetheart, we heartily recommend making that journey together -- because it's really hard to top a romantic getaway snuggled up in a cozy mountain cabin or ski chalet.
I can guarantee you that not once in the seven years since I have had small children in Rome have I ever been charged for the kids' milk. They brush it off with genuine kindness, almost as if they were offended by your offer to pay.
A few weeks ago, I headed up to Alba in search of the tartufo bianco, that coveted white truffle so hidden in the hard dirt of the Langhe region that finding even a small one is like striking gold, the edible kind.

Throughout the years I tried to learn as much as I could about the marine ecosystem. I felt I needed to do my part to keep the Adriatic and the life that dwells within it safe, for the sake of humanity.
If Venice is a dream state, then a new book about the city built on a lagoon is its vivid interpretation.
On Halloween night, the European Commission -- Europe's "executive" -- changed. At the helm of foreign policy, Lady PESC -- as Catherine Ashton was known -- gave way to Mrs PESC, as Federica Mogherini prefers to be called. Two different women leaders, two leadership styles in foreign policy.

The socialites warmly welcomed the war hero; in turn, he found solace in a milieu antithetical to the hell of war.
After months of waiting, we just received the results of the assessment of the health of Eurozone banks by their new supervisory authority: the European Central Bank. They were predictable, but the exercise has limitations.

During our visit to Bologna in the Emilia Romagna region of Italy, we looked out our window and discovered we were almost sitting on top of MortadellaBo, a one-of-a-kind, four-day festival celebrating mortadella.
The Val Gardena in northeastern Italy is a sight to behold, no matter how you look at it -- or from what height. When people talk about beautiful landscapes, they generally mean one of two different, in fact totally opposite things.
