10 FANTASTIC DESTINATIONS
TO VISIT IN AUTUMN AND WINTER
With the arrival of winter, we begin searching for new holiday destinations to experience the colours and cold of the new season or, alternatively, for warm places to relive the summer just passed. In both cases, these destinations become even more appealing if we find out that they also offer history, culture, art, delicious local dishes, traditions, nature and trips to the surrounding areas.
Now that the pandemic seems less of a worry, we can once again dream about travelling with a more positive mindset, safely and beyond our borders.
But where can we go?
Avion Tourism Magazine is proposing 10 destinations to explore, which can be reached with a short flight from Milan Bergamo Airport, a modern, comfortable and safe airport that welcomes passengers, accompanying them to exciting destinations at a time we optimistically would like to think of as being post-pandemic.
