1. Find beauty and literary inspiration in southern Italy
Remember the scene in Wonder Woman where Queen Hippolyta held a young Diana on a balcony to overlook a stunning blue sea? The front-seat experience is hidden here, right on the romantic grounds of Hotel Villa Cimbrone in Ravello, on the Amalfi coast. Open to public, walk through lush gardens and the breathtaking Terrazzo dell’Infinito, lined with 18th-century marble busts. BAZAAR highly recommends splurging on either the Iris (Greta Garbo) Suite or the Camelia Suite, where Vietri ceramic floors, frescoed ceilings, and Italian antiques welcome a stay at this historic building. Past visitors such as Virginia Woolf and Vita Sackville-West have sought literary inspiration here, so expect to return home brimming with great ideas.
