6 luxury hotels to experience the charm of great literature

From the hotel where Oscar Wilde resided to where J. K. Rowling ended the Harry Potter saga. Here are the tips of Secret Escapes for a trip worthy of a novel

There are hotels that are sure to let the true literary fans pass.
Because their rooms seem to get out of the precious pages of the great classics, or because they hosted the most illustrious writers of all time just as they were

clinging to the writing of their masterpieces. And today, such events as Book Time in Milan and the Salone del Libro of Turin celebrate the link between books and

lifestyle, Secret Escapes – the online travel club specializing in flash sales for luxury hotels – gives us a list of 6 facilities Twin-wire with international

literature, accompanying us on a fantasy journey around Europe worthy of a novel. Let’s start, then, from Chapter I.

The Hotel Paris, Paris

This luxurious hotel in rue des Beaux-Arts, near the Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Pré, was the last mansion of a certain Oscar Wilde.

And today he continues to pay tribute

to the great British writer with a room, number 13, designed by designer Jacques Garcia, with precious fabrics.

Wonderland house, Brighton
Are you also looking for the White River? This southern England hotel is entirely dedicated to Alice in the Land of Wonders and to the fantasy of Lewis Carroll.

At tea time you can sit at the table of Lepre Marzolina and Cappellaio Matto to celebrate your good-non-birthday, or you will have the opportunity to fall asleep in the

rooms dedicated to the Queen of Hearts.

Grand Hotel and Milan, Milan

Opened in 1863, this wonderful hotel in the heart of the Lombardy capital has hosted in its rooms the greatest protagonists of Italian and international culture.

The greatest writers, of course, but also Giuseppe Verdi, Maria Callas, Caruso, Luchino Visconti and Giorgio Strehler. Literature, music, cinema and theater, in short.

But also art: here was Tamara de Lempicka, who on the Grand Hotel’s letterhead wrote his letters to dear friend Gabriele D’Annunzio.

Linthwaite House Hotel, Bowness-on-Windermere

A unique access door to discover the beauty of the English Lake District and its very close connection with the poetry of the early nineteenth century.

From here, you can immerse yourself in the luxuriant nature that inspired William Wordsworth’s writings and even visit the houses where he stayed: like Dove Cottage,

now home to the Wordsworth Trust, which hosts meetings, insights and events each month in honor of the great poet.

The Balmoral Hotel, Edinburgh

A magical hotel. And not just for the beauty of its rooms. In Room 552, writer J. K. Rowling wrote the final word on the original manuscript of Harry Potter and the

Deathly Hallows, the concluding chapter of his fortunate literary saga. The hotel mascot, in turn, is just an owl. A pure coincidence?

Brown’s Hotel, London

The five-star London jewel of Rocco Forte Hotels hosted Rudyard Kipling during the writing of his most famous novel, The Jungle Book.

And so the hotel’s presidential suite was dedicated to the British Nobel Prize, with a letter written by the author himself during one of his many stays at Brown’s.

Cherry on the cake? Those traveling with children will then receive a copy of the story of Mowgli, Balù & co.

What to make of beautiful Amsterdam, (not the usual coffee shops and red light district)

Not only smoke, women and wild life. Amsterdam is a city to discover. Even day

Say and think Amsterdam Café, alcohol and girls in the window. It was wrong. It is one of the most beautiful capitals of Europe, perhaps the only one that balances perfectly the tourist side and its dark side.

A weekend just and advances to appreciate the culture of Amsterdam and its traditions, you do not live in fact only coffee shops and Red Light. Here are 5 things to do in the city of bikes, canals and tulips.

5.Passeggiata to Vonderpark
It is the largest park in the city, the perfect place to escape from the chaos of public transport and the tourists. Actually this is a very crowded place, from every where sprouting aspiring cyclists and people who are jogging, but it is so immense that almost no one pays any attention. It is not a tourist destination so you can enjoy closely the uses and customs of the locals, and especially after a long walk through ancient weeping willows, you can also admire a large expanse of blue poppies.

4.Crociera romantic between the channels of the city
To appreciate in its entirety Amsterdam, the city of a thousand quaint houses, the ideal is to take a cruise through the channels. This way you can admire comfortable seated on a small boat, all the tightest corners and secrets, all the oddities of a capital that over time consolidated its cosmopolitan metropolis status.

3. A dip in the art thanks to Van Gogh Museum
Art lovers then find bread for their teeth. The Van Gogh Museum, a short walk from Place Dom, is the nerve center of the Flemish culture. Structured on three levels, the museum offers a path of paintings, drawings and artist’s most celebrated stories of our time. Arm yourself with comfortable shoes and a lot of patience for the long queues.

2. Hap-Hmm, and the typical Dutch cuisine
Amsterdam is also famous for its cuisine and own the Hap-Hmm is the place. It is a very small restaurant, located outside the tourist center, known mostly by the British, opens only once a day for 4 hours, and even here the wait varies from half an hour to an hour. But the game is worth the candle. The restaurant has reasonable prices to suit all types of pockets, but the dishes never seen flavors awaken early now. Recommended meat stew: a culinary orgasm!

1. Rent a bike and then run like the wind
To dispose of the meat stew, or just to experience the thrill of running far and wide among the channels, with a few Euros per day, there is the possibility of renting a bike. You should know that Amsterdam has every street or cross a bike path, and in this way you can ride in complete freedom. You should only be careful to pedestrians, perhaps, they have not yet realized the existence of a path dedicated to the media on two wheels.

And if you want to find out even more the city, you can eat mussels sipping gin and tonic in Westerpark, take the ferry and take a walk to the north, between absurd loft on the canals, areas still under construction and rooms that seem to come from a post-apocalyptic movies like De Ceuvel, a cross between Mad Max and eco friendly. Or, more simply, a berti zatte beer a bit ‘wherever it happens.

From Sri Lanka to Japan, from Iceland to Cuba: the top 20 trips in 2016

Here you are the most sought after destinations and trends for the coming year

Highly popular destinations and more. Sri Lanka, Japan, from Iceland to Cuba: here are the most clicked and trendy destinations for next year according to Skyscanner. The study analyzes the places that had the largest increase in searches over the past three years. So in addition to the classic Ibiza, Tenerife, Athens and Mykonos, there are also Reykjavik, Eindhoven, Luqa and Zante. Do not you ever considered and now you’re sick of always going in the usual places for your vacation? Be inspired on a trip that will give you moments to remember.

And if you want a more in-depth guide, “World” Lonely Planet, will not disappoint. Each page a trip, with almost a thousand pages full of pictures, tips, practical information and insights: is the bible of the traveler. But we see in detail all goals of 2016.

Zakynthos, Greece. It is not difficult to imagine why this is one of the most popular: intense water destinations, which turn from emerald to turquoise bays and stunning coves, pristine cliffs, lush nature and sunsets that words can not describe.

Zakynthos is wild nature, but also history, culture, archeology. Every corner is to explore: better if you rent a car.

Corfu, Greece. Staying in Greece, Corfu is hugely popular especially in the last year. Here, you’ll find plenty to do and see and you will not have time to bore you with all sorts of activities, sports or cultural that they are. And then Greece, you know, does not disappoint even at the table: the Mediterranean cuisine for every palate and restaurants on the sea you can enjoy fresh fish freshly caught or a mild moussaka, souvlaki and saganaki and the inevitable tzatziki sauce.

Male, Maldives. It is one of the most incredible cities in the world. Among the smallest ever, the city is spread over an atoll of the Maldives only 2 square kilometers and tells an idea different from the one you normally have of this tropical paradise. Streets and alleys intersect drawing a thousand plots, houses and skyscrapers very close to each other characterize the landscape along with the chaotic bazaars. All around, the crazy sea and the other islands where nature reigns supreme and where you can head in search of a beach, because there are none in Malé.

Manila, Philippines. Old and new blend seamlessly into this multi-faceted city, capital of the Philippines. The Manila Cathedral and the church of San Agustin, in a beautiful Baroque, are Unesco World Heritage and are located inside the walled city, not to be missed. Among the ‘must see’, the Rizal Park and Fort Santiago.

Mykonos, Greece. Another Greek meta appreciated, especially by young people who like to have fun in discos and clubs. The windmills of this fantastic island of the Cyclades, a pulsing nightlife which knows no clock or calendar, its colors and its unspoiled nature, which is why the research of flights to the island are constantly growing.

Tokyo, Japan. You want to feel at the center of the world? Do you want to experience the feeling of being a little ant in the ordered chaos of a brisk and colorful metropolis? You’re in the right place. In Tokyo, the Japanese capital, you can only exercise the use of the five senses: enchanted temples and museums alongside blinding neon signs, quirky neighborhoods full of oddities, neighborhoods entirely dedicated to shopping, sumptuous Imperial Palaces and great sushi.

Menorca, Spain. Let’s move to Spain and let’s jump in Menorca, beautiful Balearic island that finally starts to show in spite of the two most famous sisters, Majorca and Ibiza. Perhaps this is why the interest in this dream paradise has increased exponentially in the past three years. Or maybe it will be for the sea that is second to none, and for being an open-air museum, which preserves its uniqueness in spite of the growing mass tourism. A place that deserves attention.

Havana, Cuba. Since it was declared the official embargo against Cuba by the United States, but already since he’s just started talking and to have a feeling that would happen, Havana showed a peak of more intense interest, although this is a destination that has always been required. Before the island becomes or will be, in some way, external influences, you have to start and take that authentic love of life that characterizes it, sly and clever; its dancing atmosphere; its stunning beaches and cigars and rum and so on and so forth. Some departures are not to be postponed.

Santorini, Greece. Immersed in the deep blue of a deep and fascinating Aegean Sea, in contrast to the dark volcanic rock of the island and with its white houses, gleaming in the sun, Santorini is a rare pearl of beauty that is gaining in prestige. The sunsets in Oia are a necessary step, but not neglecting Thira and Caldera views that you will enjoy from there not forget for the rest of your life. With its arches, porches, Catholic and Orthodox churches, staircases, squares and views breathtaking.

Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Let’s move on the beautiful island Hispaniola, divided between the state of Haiti and the Dominican Republic. We remain in this last area because the capital Santo Domingo is a colonial city that maintains the charm of yesteryear. Increasingly sought after by anyone who follows the sun and warm all year round, with a tropical climate and a rich natural heritage, it is made not only of incredible beaches and lush vegetation, but also a highly respected wildlife.

Colombo, Sri Lanka. In Colombo, Sri Lanka, focus all cultures of the country and the city is an explosion of colors and voices, including markets and skyscrapers, which will captivate you. And, once left behind the Civil War, Colombo is showing many signs of progress. Starting with the improvements in the links. The Fort area brings together the major sites of historical interest, while at Pettah you can not miss the bazaars, boisterous and full of great deals on your souvenirs.

Luqa, Malta. Returning to Europe, and we make a stop in Malta. crossroads of various civilizations, all traceable in the beautiful city architecture, the Maltese archipelago consists of three islands, one more beautiful and knows how to surprise everyone with its beauty and excellent cuisine, which has taken the best from all influences of the Mediterranean.

Tenerife, Spain. The Canaries remain a dream for many: Tenerife is cliccatissima, with its sub-tropical vegetation which alternates with desert and lunar landscapes, spectacular beaches and a carnival that rivals that of Rio. It ‘a place where they find themselves or to disappear completely. Then if you decide at the last move you, let us know.

Ibiza, Spain. It is an evergreen, Ibiza, with its authentic beauty and its nightlife which knows no limits. But the island is also popular with those who want to enjoy the sun of the day and the natural and cultural beauty of the island: the Isla Bianca was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO for the Punic necropolis, Phoenician remains of Sa Caleta , the natural reserve of Ses Salines, the fortified city of Dalt Vila.

Athens, Greece. A beautiful city that was the cradle of one of the greatest civilizations and continues to be the focus of the most recent news: Athens is a beating heart, in full political ferment, artistic and cultural.

Seville, Spain. The key words here are fiesta, tapas and flamenco. But the atmosphere is something that is hard to describe: Seville is one of those places you should experience, including a walk in the romantic area of ​​the Guadalquivir and a stop in the taverns. An ideal destination in every season of the year, Andalusia, in the list of the obligatory fan of the Iron Throne, is an area to mark the agenda.

Reykjavik, Iceland. Trend, trendy, young, explosive. Reykjavik is a city that in 2016 goes absolutely view, for its cosmopolitan spirit and its events.

Buenos Aires, Argentina. A city that knows how to get into the heart and stay there for long. For the warmth of its inhabitants, which they draw spontaneous smiles are loved and not alone. Definitely one of the favorite destinations among the countries of South America.

Eindhoven, Netherlands. Here we are in one of the town enjoying at the moment of maximum enthusiasm: Eindhoven is full of interesting places to visit, museums that tell ancient traditions, local to spend pleasant evenings and full of remarkable buildings from an architectural point of view. A city that, despite the cumbersome shadow of Amsterdam, has been able to make the most of its strengths (and air links) and has made tourism a resource.

Warsaw, Poland. Poland is undoubtedly a country that has learned to better manage his territory and Warsaw is right among the trendiest cities in the world. architectural development, the historical center of considerable interest, so much so that UNESCO Heritage, galleries and art centers, increasingly chic night life and different neighborhoods with different souls but all captivating.
