Sicilian villa embraces history, hominess

I slept in one of Don Arcangelo all'Olmo's bedrooms, floating as if in a dream between Mount Etna and the Ionian Sea. Don Arcangelo all' Olmo, or L'Olmo, as he is affectionately referred to, is actually a villa located near the town of Taormina on Sicily's east coast. It's been in the same family for generations (since the 1700s). The current owners opened their home to paying guests, when L'Olmo joined an exclusive club in The Thinking Traveller's collection of 200 villas in Sicily, Puglia, and the Ionian and Sporades islands.

Translating Disney magic in China

Even before Walt Disney Co. opened Euro Disneyland outside Paris in 1992, French intellectuals called the park a "cultural Chernobyl," workers protested the Disney dress code and neighbors complained that the park's train whistles provoked their dogs to bark and geese to honk.

Rome makes history shine for visitors

Buongiorno, my hundreds of fellow tourists crowding the Trevi Fountain on this bright spring day. Doesn't it look magnificent? Isn't it grand? Aren't you happy to be the first high-season tourists to see the place again without scaffolding? The baroque fountain was recently closed for 17 months while it was cleaned, scrubbed, repaired and restored to the glory intended by sculptor Salvi when he began carving it in 1762.
