Home to unrivalled diversity, Latin America is a melting pot of cultures The countries that make up Latin America are as distinct from one another as the region is from other parts of the world. So, what unites them? In addition to geographical proximity and the Spanish language (with the exception of Portuguese in Brazil and French in Haiti), perhaps it’s the culture, the climate, the more relaxed outlook on life than European counterparts. There are a number of familiarities that unite them but, at the same time, many aspects that make them unique thanks to their historical context.…

Verona Arena is famous worldwide for being one of the best preserved amphitheatres in the world even with its 2000 year history Once upon a time, this Roman amphitheatre would accommodate 30,000 spectators at a time.

The original use was as a stage for gladiatorial battles—warriors…

Until 2009, the name Prosecco was also tied to the type of white grape used to produce wine, before this grape was given a…
