Hotel Gellert (1918) has one of the most popular baths of Budapest and is certainly the most beautiful. The medical spring here was already famous in the 13th century and the spa still does an excellent job today. Especially when having a hangover.

Although as little as 2.5% of Italy’s GDP comes from its agriculture sector, it sure makes a nice picture.

A picturesque little beach at Portoferraio on the island Elba. The restaurant on this gorgeous location is called Le Viste which has -most importantly- ice cold beer. You need it once you get there.

Just a sunset on the beach of Punta Ala where an umbrella and two beds for a day cost a mere €35 (or €80 depending on the hotel).

In 1814 after 10 years of reign Napoleon Bonaparte was banned to this villa on the island Elba for the coast of Italy. He escaped within a year to once again become the Emperor of France, although not for a long time. In June 1815 he lost the decisive battle at Waterloo and was banned to Sint-Helena where he eventually died.
