It might be something small, like amazing food or interesting local custom. It doesn't matter what it is in your case, as long as it makes your trip special. Here are the 3 places which I found unforgettable.
There is a saying “what happens in Barcelona, stays in Barcelona”. With its numerous restaurants and night clubs, it is true - the city never sleeps. However, there is so much more to this. Gaudi buildings, lots of artists and well-dressed people, laughter and Catalan language make the city truly magical. It is even more magical if you allow yourself to get lost in the labyrinth of little old streets. Once I was wandering around, when I looked down and saw an entrance of a dwarf height. It looked like the doors to somebody’s basement, but since they were open, I didn’t resist the temptation and went inside. The walls of the basement were made of old yellow bricks. It looked elegant, but also very spiritual. I thought it was a museum, as there were many vases and archaeological objects exposed. But then a handsome tall man explained to me the story of the building. It turned out to be a 500-years old Jewish synagogue! A sacred, hidden place in the middle of loud, busy town, isn’t it magical?
One of the most beautiful places on Sicily. No wonder why this inspirational spot became a popular destination among artists and writers, including Truman Capote. Since the sixties the Taormina Film Festival had been taking place, what made the place even more glamorous. It hosted movie legends like Audrey Hepburn, Marlena Dietrich, Elizabeth Taylor and modern celebrities like Tom Cruise and Antonio Banderas. When you walk down the main street in the old part of town, you will immediately understand why it was Taormina they chose to create the festival. Tempting, posh shops with fashionable clothes, outdoor vibrant ristorantes and breathtaking views over the island – what more can you ask for? Well, beautiful food! Try the Sicilian ice cream in Taormina served in a sweet bun or Sicilian cannoli (little tubes of fried pastry filled with fresh ricotta), and you will never want to leave!
