Cultural friendship trip to the Lithuanian capital Vilnius
In the capital of Lithuania Vilnius you get plenty of culture and history, and the city is ideal for a trip with friends. Vilnius offers charming medieval atmosphere, lots of beautiful churches and modern architecture. The city mixes new with old in an interesting way.
The Lithuanian capital is also a shopping mecca with many opportunities to make some good, cheap purchases. In particular, the large Kalvarijų turgus market is worth mentioning in this context.
Here you can buy everything from real fur and furniture, to fruit and vegetables and Lithuanian specialties.
You can live very well for little money in Vilnius, and if you and your friends want to live like royalty, we recommend booking a few nights at the Kempinski Hotel Cathedral Square.
The hotel's fantastic location in the heart of the old town, and world-class service, create the perfect setting for an unforgettable trip. If you want to spend more money on experiences, food and shopping and save a little on overnight stays, you should stay at Hotel PACAI instead.
Cozy gourmet holiday in beautiful Montepulciano in Italy
Montepulciano is an obvious visit for your next friend trip, if you are looking for delicious food and wine.
In the heart of Tuscany lies idyllic Montepulciano, which guarantees a wonderful gourmet holiday. Montepulciano is a paradise for food and wine lovers. Among other things, the city is known for producing a wide range of specialties - including cheese, sausage, pasta and honey - and not least wine.
At the foot of the charming and well-preserved medieval town, the vineyards lie in rows. The region's Vino Nobile, is actually considered by many to be one of Italian best wines.
If you are into unconditional luxury, you must stay at Il Tosco, which is located in the historic center of the city. The hotel has previously functioned as a noble residence and is built in a beautiful, classic style.
A cheaper alternative is the Hotel Panoramic, located a little outside the center of Montepulciano. On the other hand, it has perhaps the area's best view of the city. Gourmet and wine tours in the region can be arranged from both hotels.
