Amalfi CoastOrdinær pris 1.199,00 kr
The Amalfi Coast is the pinnacle of the Italian dream. Tucked amongst the lemon blossoms and the bougainvillea is a line of thirteen towns that comprise the Amalfi Coast. Known for its vertical landscape, the villages are only accessible via the Strada Statale 163 — a narrow, winding, cliffside route that while unsettling to traverse, offers unparalleled views. This magical strip joins the mountains and the Mediterranean Sea below and aesthetes from around the world flock here year after year to enjoy its quaint pebbled beaches, scenic hikes, perfect climate and legendary establishments, which are not limited to storied hotels and restaurants. Landmarks from the Cathedral in Amalfi to Villa Rufolo in Ravello, all evoke the culture and the spirit of bygone centuries, and landmarks enjoyed by the likes of Jacqueline Kennedy, John Steinbeck, and Gore Vidal abound. With its signature limoncello, both grown and enjoyed locally, finest villas and breathtaking vistas, the Amalfi Coast is in a class of its own.
Tuscany MarvelOrdinær pris 1.199,00 kr
The Italian region of Tuscany is a feast for all senses. A creative incubator that has cultivated art and architecture for eras including Etruscan, Roman, Renaissance and modern times. Timeworn churches, once stops on nineteenth-century Grand Tours, stand tall in the towns’ piazzas. Rolling hills of wheat and colorful olive groves, that inspire authentic Tuscan cuisine, are dotted with villas built by the prestigious Medici family. The Tyrrhenian Sea extends off its coast, lapping the shore of Elba, the island where the emperor Napoleon was exiled. Quaint villages, historic towns and bustling cities are scattered across its landscape, which is almost as varied as the communities themselves. From annual horse races at Piazza del Campo, and the centuries-old winemaking traditions of the Chianti region to the city of Pisa, an ancient Maritime Republic known for the youthful spirit of its Scuola Normale Superiore and Leaning Tower alike, Tuscany is the place of dreams, where thousands come to relive its history and take in the beauty of a region.
In the fashion world, Ferragamo, Gucci and Pucci all have ties to Florence and its endless inspiration. However, what truly defines Tuscany is its timelessness. Masterpieces from centuries past still lure immense crowds. Brunelleschi’s dome in Florence never fails to strike onlookers with awe.

En middag i romaOrdinær pris 399,00 kr
Bli med til Roma og nyt verdenshistorien servert i en bolle med pasta. Gjennom et måltid i Roma tar Andreas Viestad oss med på en kulinarisk reise i historien. Det handler om hvordan en liten innlandsby ble verdens største imperium, om smaken av grillet kjøtt som gjorde oss til mennesker, om den milde rusen fra en halv flaske vin, den søtsure smaken av mafia og slaveri og jakten på den opprinnelige pasta carbonara. Tankevekkende og underholdende om smakene som formet historien.

MONUMENTENEOrdinær pris 499,00 kr
Glem Tour de France, glem VM. Seier i et av de fem monumentene er noe Thor Hushovd ville ha byttet alle sine meritter imot. Det er han ikke alene om. Milano-Sanremo, Ronde van Vlaanderen, Paris-Roubaix, Liège- Bastogne-Liège og Il Lombardia er rittene som utgjør sportens fem gjeveste troféer. Fra våren i Sanremo til høstavslutningen i Lombardia, de fem rittene har alltid drevet syklister gale i jakten på ære.
Mens Tour de France stadig tilpasser seg moderne tider, har monumentene beholdt sin rå natur fra sykkelsportens opprinnelse. Til denne dag har kun én nordmann oppnådd æren det betyr å stå øverst på podiet: Alexander Kristoff.
Forfatter Geir Stian Ulstein fortsetter der han slapp med de kritikerroste sykkelbøkene Drømmenes fjell og Bakker og Berg. Fra sykkelsetet opplever han de mytiske traséene i Frankrike, Belgia og Italia, der han finner utallige historier om ryttere som i jakten på ære ble sendt over brostein, gjørme og fjell. De ga alt for det ultimate hederstegnet i sykkelsporten: Seier i et monument.
