Hidden Europe

• The first Museum of Wind, the footsteps of James Joyce, the Pharaoh’s Villa, and Tito’s quarry of death.

• Miramare Castle, the Victory Lighthouse, segregated sea bathing, and the world’s biggest regatta.

• The ideal city guide for travellers who want to escape the crowds and go beyond the well-known paths, as well as for those inhabitants who perhaps thought they already knew their city.
