Every year, from 0 to 99 years old, we feverishly open the advent calendar window in search of the treat or gadget of the day.
We at Amami Viaggi wondered if, in addition to the classic one, it was not possible to create a traveler’s calendar!
So let’s start our super journey by covering the perfect destinations in the different months of the year. A long journey, full of passion, fun, intense emotions and amazing places. Places made to be remembered and to be experienced not just once.
Traveling in the Alps in winter can be and is an unforgettable experience and January is the ideal month to enjoy the snowy landscapes. You can find destinations for all your tastes and needs, such as outdoor activities, skiing at various levels of difficulty, skating or snowshoeing among more traditional mountain resorts and cities of art. Take the opportunity to disconnect from the daily routine and recharge your batteries for the new year.
Don’t forget to prepare yourself adequately to face the cold, wearing warm and waterproof clothes and bringing everything you need to fully enjoy this “excursion”.
If it’s cold in Italy, why not organize a trip to the Maldives?
Ideal destination to spend a luxury holiday in February, between the sea and the bright sun.
Located in the Indian Ocean, these tropical islands have so much to offer between white sand beaches and crystal clear water, perfect locations if you love to swim, snorkel and enjoy the sun. Furthermore, February is the perfect time to visit the Maldives: the weather is mild and the islands are not crowded with tourists. Before you go, don’t forget to pre-book an overwater resort or private island so you can make the most of your vacation.
Don’t always think of the hot sun somewhere in the world or the snow in the mountains, but think of a different, spectacular and bewitching half: go see the Aurora Borealis in Iceland and Norway.
The Aurora Borealis is a natural phenomenon which consists of an anomalous luminosity of the atmospheric regions caused by the impact of charged particles from the Sun.
In Norway and Iceland, March is the best time to see this spectacle.
The Aurora Borealis are usually visible in Norway and Iceland during the night hours, when the sky is clear and cloudless. In March, the climatic conditions are generally very favourable. The duration of the auroras varies according to the intensity of solar activity, from a few minutes to a maximum of an hour, with a play of colors between green and red. Sometimes it is also possible to see yellow, pink and purple.
The advice is to move towards rural areas, away from city lights to see everything better. In any case, the Aurora Borealis is an unpredictable phenomenon, it is always better to prepare yourself for one or more observation nights, to have more chances of seeing it.
Japan in spring is one of the perfect destinations if you love flowers and nature, but April is the ideal month. Indeed, the country is awash with cherry blossoms, known as “sakura” in Japanese.
Cherry blossoms are an iconic symbol of Japanese spring.
Another reason to visit Japan in the month of April is the mild temperature, between hot days and cool nights.
If you want to see cherry blossoms, Kyoto is the most atmospheric city where you can admire the flowers both in gardens and along the banks of the rivers, but don’t worry, cherry blossoms can be seen all over Japan.
Japan isn’t just about cherry blossoms, it’s also the perfect time to attend traditional Japanese holidays and festivals. Among the most famous is the Yokohama Drum Festival, where you can watch ancient Japanese drum performances and participate in drum workshops. In addition, you can visit Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples or explore the historic districts of Japanese cities, gardens, customs, you can discover the customs and Japan’s great respect for tourists.

Peru, in May, is a great idea for an adventure-filled holiday with hot and dry weather. May gives you the chance to explore the wonders of the country, such as the famous ruins of Machu Picchu and Lake Titicaca.
In spring you can also participate in the colorful local festivals. Don’t forget to bring sunscreen and a hat with you.

Instead, at night Sharm el Sheikh also offers a wide choice of bars and discos where you can have fun until late at night.
He returns to Italy in the summer. June is the perfect month to enjoy beautiful Italy with generally mild temperatures, sun, art and sea.
The choice is very varied, if you love the sea between the islands: Sardinia and Sicily you won’t be able to choose.
Even the sea of the Amalfi and Cilento coast makes you choose and the choice is really difficult. But Italy is not only sea and good food, it is also a lot of history and art.
The most visited cities are Rome, Florence, Venice and Naples, but the list is really long. Planning a holiday in Italy is truly the perfect gesture to pamper yourself.
Africa in July – perhaps planning a nice safari – is really the perfect solution.
Obviously it is not a journey like any other, but it is a journey of adventure, contact with nature in all its primordial essence.
It is a journey where we witness the struggle for survival, between predators and prey for the maintenance of the species or for the control of the territory. The deserts of Namibia, the rainforests of Uganda, the South African bush, the great plains of Tanzania or the Okawango delta in Botswana, these are some of the destinations you could reach for a safari in Africa.
