Rome is the capital and largest city of Italy and of the Lazio region. It´s the famed city of the Roman Empire, the Seven Hills, La Dolce Vita (sweet life), the Vatican City, and Three Coins in the Fountain. Rome, as a millennium-long center of power, culture and religion, having been the center of one of the globe´s greatest civilizations ever, has exerted a huge influence over the world in its 2,500 years of existence. The Historic Center of the city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With wonderful palaces, millennium-old churches and basilicas, grand romantic ruins, opulent monuments, ornate statues, and graceful fountains, Rome has an immensely rich historical heritage and cosmopolitan atmosphere, making it one of Europe´s and the world´s most visited, famous, influential, and beautiful capitals. Today, Rome has a growing nightlife scene and is also seen as a shopping heaven, being regarded as one of the fashion capitals of the world (some of Italy´s oldest jewelry and clothing establishments were founded in the city). With so many sights and things to do, Rome can truly be classified a "global city". Rome has a Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters. In the winter months, daytime temperatures are usually pleasant and range from 10-15 degrees Celsius, while nighttime temperatures tend to stay slightly above freezing. That being said, the occasional cold snap can cause temperatures to fall below freezing, and it is not unheard of for light flurries of snow to fall on occasion, though accumulation is rare, and major snowstorms are known to occur only once every 20-25 years. 1.

This new, thoroughly updated sixth edition of Bradt´s Albania remains the only standalone guide to this dynamic and rapidly modernising eastern European country, from the capital, Tirana, a lively European city, with shopping malls, cycle paths, museums, galleries and historic buildings, to remote outposts where traditional ways of life prevail. Updated by expert author Gillian Gloyer, it includes all developments since the last edition, reflecting changes such as continued investment in the road network and construction of fast highways connecting main cities, improved hotel provision and new museums dedicated to Albania´s communist history. Despite such modernisation, Albania is one of very few European countries where it is still possible to immerse yourself in traditional lifestyles and culture, and Bradt´s Albania provides details of where to experience this for yourself. In highland villages, people tend their livestock and gather their crops with little or no mechanisation; they milk their cows and goats by hand, they make their own cheese and bread, they distil home-made spirits from local fruits and berries. In addition, many villagers have opened up their traditional homes as guest-houses, offering a wonderful opportunity to experience their culture first-hand. Bradt´s Albania also includes details of watching the country´s rare wildlife, such as wildcats, lynx, wolves and bears, and of visiting its three World Heritage Sites: the archaeological site and national park of Butrint and the Ottoman cities of Berati and Gjirokastra. Iso-polyphony, the traditional music of the south-west, is also listed as part of World Heritage by UNESCO. With rigorously researched historical and archaeological background information, detailed notes on popular and less well-known hiking routes and other outdoor activities, specialist contributors on wildlife, military history and other topics, and an unparalleled wealth of practical advice for the independent traveller, Bradt´s Albania is the ideal companion for discovering this intriguing country.
Whenever you hear about St. Barts, it is usually in connection with which celebrities are partying there. It is definitely known as the island of the stars. Why is that? Well, it may be because of the island´s pristine beauty. And while it is small - only eight square miles - there are a lot of hills, inlets, coves, beaches, and tropical landscapes packed into that space. Driving around the island, wherever you go, the villages are neat, the houses are well tended, roads are good (although narrow and winding), and even the cemeteries are beautiful. Then there are the hotels and villas. The hotels have been carefully planned to be small and precious, with emphases on exquisite service and guaranteed privacy. Luxurious private villas outnumber the available hotel rooms and overlook the sparkling turquoise sea. The villas are self-contained residences with waitstaff, pools, Jacuzzis, and home theaters, ideal for hiding from crowds of admirers and paparazzi. But wait, there are also the restaurants. The French heritage shines through loud and clear, and the island´s fusion of French and Creole cuisines is offered in gorgeous settings. Even the plentiful beach restaurants turn typical barbecue and burger fare into gourmet experiences. But the choices also include American favorites. After all, this is St. Barts, and the watchword is: ´´You want it? You got it.´´ With its long history as a duty-free port, you know there are bargains to be had. Shops in Gustavia and St. Jean offer couture clothing, accessories, jewelry, and more. This is Parisian shopping in paradise. There´s no doubt that a big part of the allure of the island comes from what the island does not have: flashy casinos, high-rise hotels, and crowded beaches. The real draw of St. Barts, whether you are rich or poor, is the chance to enjoy the ambiance and character of France in a tropical setting. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Steve Ryan.
