A dream travel book was published by Taschen and quoting from Taschen books website:
“To travel through Italy is as close as one gets to being in paradise. For centuries, writers, artists, architects and merchants have been drawn here, inspired by the beauty of Venice, Florence, Naples and Rome. Countless books, paintings, poems and sculptures are evidence of its undying appeal, and over the past 60 years, the country has become one of the world's top travel and holiday destinations. The loveliness of Italy—its architecture, landscapes, culture and food (some of the world’s finest!) — if not eternal, is certainly enduring, and the easy-going and relaxed Italian lifestyle, il dolce far niente, is still unrivaled.”
The latest of the series Great Escapes, an interesting mix of travel guide and interior design, talks about Italy and it is full of travel inspiration.
In this book you can find amazing destinations from Lake Como in the North to Amalfi coast and the Aeolian Islands in the South.
The book is full of stunning images of resorts and legendary hotels full of atmosphere where movies were shot, famous love stories took place, weddings are celebrated.
If only the walls could talk…
©2011 Brillante Interiors writes about new trends, timeless decor, iconic pieces, design ideas, or at times just musing about "a certain Italian way of doing things".
