I bet you can remind of something you’ve seen in a movie, read in a book, heard in a song for each of them, as it seems you know them very well.  And when you are there, you feel like you are part of that stage, of that movie set, with the cups of coffee always full, the shops open day and night, the drives in, …

But America is much more than that. Go beyond the places you have already seen in the movies and you will discover some of the most beautiful cities in the world, breathtaking landscapes, helpful and welcoming people, all sorts of oddities, sports that cannot be more extreme than that, but also tranquillity and peace.

In the United States every kind of trip is possible because you will find modern megalopolis but also deserts, mountains, grasslands and a variety of incredible climates and customs.

What to see

Here are some ideas of what you can admire in this wonderful place:

It is really impossible to give you just an idea of what you absolutely must see in USA. Here are just a few ideas:

The chaos, the shops and the museum of New York, the parks, the waves in Arizona, the waves and the beaches of California, the peace of Hawaii, the Hollywood sets, the route 66, the hangover in Las Vegas, and I could go on for pages and pages…


The landscape, the flora and the fauna of this country are just one of the reasons to visit it.

In the USA there are 60 national parks and hundreds of protected areas, in which it’s possible to admire indescribable natural spectacles in words, in which live thousands of species of animals, even of large size, such as moose, bison and bears.

Here are some not to be missed:

  • Yellowstone (Idaho, Montana e Wyoming)

Food and Wine

What you could eat and drink in this country


Probably this is the first thing that comes to mind, along with rivers of beer to complete the picture.

Yes, America is definitely the home of burgers and grilled meats, apple pies and turkey for Thanksgiving.

But there are so many dishes that we recommend you taste and you won’t regret it, from street food to traditional dishes, because America is not just junk food:

Lunch with New York hot dogs, breakfast with pancakes and American coffee and a snack with donuts, and then Lobster roll in front of Boston Harbour in the evening with a good glass of wine, and fried green tomatoes tells you something?

All that remains to do is to experience all kind of food, far and wide throughout the territory.

Wine is a continuously growing product and Californian wines are excellent.

When to go

The climate varies strongly from north to south, with the distance from the oceans and the presence or proximity of mountain ranges: the Midwest has a continental climate, the south-west desert, the Californian coast has a Mediterranean one, Alaska sub-Arctic, and so on. Southern states are also influenced by the warm tropical winds that come from the Gulf of Mexico, which results in milder winters but also greater humidity and hurricane formation. Viceversa, northern states on the Atlantic coast are beaten by the cold Labrador current.

Autumn is above all the best time to see the regions of the parks, the great lakes, when the colors of nature offer a wonderful spectacle.

If you want to enjoy skiing though, of course winter is the only possible season, while in summer enjoy the beaches of California.

Some tips

To move from one city to another you can use the bus or the train, but the most convenient and practical way to visit the USA is by car, and internal flights to move from one State to another.

Restaurants serves very cold drinks with excessive amounts of ice and the air conditioning is always set to arctic temperatures.
