Winter has finally come thanks to Burian, this super cold wind that covered half of Italy with snow. So we have a very good reason to escape from the city looking for the sun for the weekend, don’t you think? Here you are 3 travel ideas that you can reach in just a few hours by plane!

You should be aware that, while we are freezing under the snow, in Marrakech is already spring. That’s a great reason to search for a last minute flight that can take us to this wonderful Moroccan city, a second home for French designer Yves Saint-Laurent (the long-awaited museum dedicated to his life and work opened last year). You can drink a peppermint tea on Jemaa el Fna plaza, get lost in the beautiful Jardin Majorelle, having some relaxing time in a hammam and enjoy the desert’s atmosphere. Maybe you remember that our dearest Chiara, not long ago, spent, some beautiful days in Marrakech.

It’s quite famous all around the world, but still, it’s not considered as one of the coolest places to spend the holidays. Well, we completely disagree with this opinion, but maybe we can consider it as an ad advantage for us: we won’t risk finding too many people and have a really relaxing weekend. Malta has so many breathtaking cliffs, seasides that can compete with Caribbean ones (have you ever heard about Blue Lagoon?), wonderful Gozo Island and beautiful Medina, Malta’s the ancient capital. We’re pretty sure you’ll have a wonderful weekend!

Chania has many ancient and newer monuments in the harbours like Arsenals, the Venetian shipyards, fishing boats in old harbour of Chania, the Lighthouse, the Venetian shipyards, the Center of Mediterranean architecture, the Küçük Hasan Pasha Ottoman Mosque, the famous red building that is the Nautical museum etc. About 50.000 inhabitants are in Chania, but during the summer the city is a popular tourist destination and many cruise ships also stop here. In the background are many times the "White Mountains" or in Greek 'Lefka Ori". (Photo by Nicolas Economou/NurPhoto via Getty Images)



Spring has already come to Crete: we can tell you that in the coming days we’ll be so warm! If you always thought about it as a good place for your summer holidays, you should discover how beautiful it is in March. You can have some archaeological moment (don’t miss the Minotaur’s Labyrinth inside Knossos palace), relaxing walks in Iraklion, Chania and Agios Nicholaus’ streets and unforgettable moments at the seaside, next to a deep blue sea.


Good morning Crete, nothing more rejuvenating than a beach walk 💦
