Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
Once the meeting wraps and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwatering Italian meal in these three cities.
When in Milan if you find yourself in or near Milan for busi- ness, don’t journey home as soon as business is over. Why not visit the Leonardo da Vinci Home or view the world-famous “The Last Supper”? Or perhaps you’d prefer to play a round of golf on Lake Como before enjoying an opera performance at La Scala. The options are endless in Milan once the work day is over.
When in Turin when you finish your business in or near Turin, don’t rush back to the airport. You’re in Turin, so why not visit the Egyptian Museum or the Moving Image Museum? Or, be different and spend a day sipping Italy’s best wines at Le Langhe, truffle hunting in Alba or hitting the slopes and skiing the Alps. Whatever your pleasure, indulge it in Torino.
When in Genoa stay awhile. Even though business is done, there’s more to see in Genoa. Kick back for a few more days; after all, why not visit Italy’s largest aquarium, or delve deeper into the heart and history of the city with a visit to the ancient and spectacular city center. You can wrap up your stay in Italy with a visit to Santa Margherita or Portofino. With the important meetings out of the way, Genoa is your oyster.

Even older titles, considered classics, can cost more than someone bargained. Many turned to reading books online or downloading audio files because it’s a cheaper alternative to physical books. However, what about the population of readers who love to read from paperbacks and hardcovers? Thankfully, there are companies like Thriftbooks that make it possible to afford books.
The Colchagua Wine Country in Chile is one of the most romantic destinations in the country. Here are some of the best things to do for lovers celebrating an anniversary or special getaway:
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
