Andreani, known throughout Europe as the premier distributor of motorcycle and bicycle suspension products, announced today the opening of their first US office and distribution center, located in Hendersonville NC.

Visiting Castellamare del Golfo in Sicily

   Visiting Castellamare del Golfo in Sicily is a must for any traveler looking to experience a unique slice of Italian culture and history. The small fishing community is located on the Tyrrhenian coast, giving it spectacular views of the Mediterranean Sea.

Castellamare del Golfo has been inhabited since at least the 8th century BC, when Greeks and Phoenicians arrived to settle the land. The town was then taken over by Romans, Arabs and Normans over the centuries, resulting in a rich cultural history that visitors can explore today.

The picturesque old town is full of colorful architecture, cobbled streets and alleyways with plenty of shops, restaurants and cafes to explore. Visitors can take in breathtaking views from Castellamare Castle or visit its beautiful churches such as Church of San Vito or St Domenico's Cathedral.

The coastline around Castellamare del Golfo is also stunning and perfect for swimming, snorkeling and diving. There are plenty of beaches to choose from such as Torre Salsa Beach or Tonnara di Scopello Beach with its crystal-clear turquoise waters. It's no surprise that this area has been declared an official nature reserve due to its abundance of flora and fauna.

For those looking for an adrenaline rush there are plenty of activities available such as kayaking, windsurfing or even paragliding off Monte Inici – one of the highest points near Castellamare del Golfo with incredible views out across the Mediterranean horizon! With so much beauty and variety in one place it's easy to see why Castellamare del Golfo should be a top destination for any traveler looking for an unforgettable holiday experience!

   The Italian company’s new summer itineraries, starting in May, will feature proximity cruises with longer port stops, new excursion programs and revamped food experiences.

 Costa Smeralda and Costa Firenze will sail in the Western Mediterranean, while Costa Deliziosa and Costa Luminosa will sail in the Eastern part. 

Genoa, April 22, 2021 - Summer is approaching, and with it the desire and the possibility to finally plan moments of leisure, relaxation and vacation with blue sea and yellow sun. These are precisely the colors of Costa Cruises, which today announces its programs for the 2021 summer, with enhanced health and safety protocols and exciting new features for cruises to beautiful destinations in the Mediterranean. Featuring extended stays at ports of call and organized shore excursions exclusive to Costa guests, the Italian company's Mediterranean cruises will include two ships in the west and two in the east with sailings to Italy, France, Spain and Greece, and itineraries accessible from 13 different ports of embarkation. Each ship will also feature the Costa Safety Protocol, which includes enhanced health and safety procedures for all aspects of the cruise experience, both on board and ashore, which were implemented in the past months of cruise operations. "We have updated our program for this summer based on a scenario of port and destination re-openings that is becoming increasingly clear and that now allows us to better plan our operations and offer extraordinary cruise vacations to the many guests who look forward to relaxing and memorable holidays," said Mario Zanetti, President of Costa Cruises. "We decided to focus on destinations in the Mediterranean, close to our European guests, that can be discovered or re-discovered in a truly unique way. Now we can finally say that the Costa summer begins, and we cannot wait to welcome our loyal guests as well as newcomers – all of whom can count on us for high-quality service, dining and entertainment, wonderful destinations and an exceptional onboard experience with enhanced safety protocols." The new summer itineraries will feature extended stops in ports of call to allow guests to spend more time on shore. Costa will also introduce a renewed program of excursions that will allow guests to discover offthe-beaten-path locations that are exclusive for Costa guests. The onboard experience will be further enriched by new menu options featuring "destination dishes" linked to the locations visited by Costa ships. Costa’s two newest and most innovative ships will operate in the Western Mediterranean: Costa Smeralda, the LNG-powered flagship, and Costa Firenze, the new ship inspired by the Florentine Renaissance and delivered last December, which will experience a real debut. As already announced, the first ship to depart will be Costa Smeralda, on May 1, which will take guests to beautiful Italian locations on three- and four-day mini-cruises that will make it possible to enjoy a shorter experience or, alternatively, a week-long cruise, calling at Savona, La Spezia, Civitavecchia, Naples, Messina and Cagliari. This Italian itinerary will be extended until July 3, when the ship will return to offer week-long cruises visiting Savona, Marseille, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Palermo and Civitavecchia. Cruises in Italy will continue to be available on Costa Firenze, which will set sail on her first trip on July 4, with an all-Italian itinerary that includes Savona, Civitavecchia, Palermo, Naples, Messina and Cagliari. From September 12 until mid-October, Costa Firenze will also be offering one-week international cruises including Savona, Civitavecchia, Naples, Ibiza, Barcelona and Marseilles. On the eastern side of the Mediterranean, two other ships will sail, the twins Costa Luminosa and Costa Deliziosa.
