The Centenary Tree Canopy Walkway is a new curved steel and timber bridge that winds and dips its way through and over the trees of the Arboretum. Inspired by a snake skeleton, and informally called ‘The Boomslang‘ (meaning tree snake), it is a low-maintenance, low-impact sculptural raised walkway.

With Easter fast approaching Italy is the perfect place to visit around this time of year to enjoy mild temperatures and fine food and wine. Tuscany is top on the list of many, being one of the country’s most beautiful and culture crammed areas with plenty to offer over the Easter period. Here are 3 reasons why:
1. Scoppio del Carro Festival
Translated to mean “explosion of the cart”, Florence’s first major festival of the year is held on Easter Sunday to celebrate the ancient crusade of 1099. During this fascinating festival, an enormous antique cart is pulled by two oxen, dressed up in garlands of flowers for the occasion, from the Porta al Prato to the Piazza del Duomo. The cart, carrying a substantial pile of fireworks is accompanied by 150 soldiers, musicians, and people in 15th century dress. During midday mass, the pile is ignited via an elaborate wiring system which sends an object representing a dove speeding down from the high altar. The “dove” sets alight the fireworks after which ensues an impressive show lasting 20 minutes. To mark the occasion the bells of Giotto’s campanile ring out throughout the whole procession. As bizarre as this Easter festivity sounds, you have to see it to believe it!
2. Top Florence Attractions
Florence, former capital of Italy, has a lot to offer all year round. Walk around the center of the city and chance upon the Galleria degli Uffizi, Palazzo Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria and breathe the ancient renaissance’s atmosphere. Moreover, if you are really interested in tasting new flavours and traditional cuisine, Florence and Tuscany have delicious recipes and wines: the countryside around Florence is plenty of “Agriturismi” and “trattorie”, where you can try typical “Bistecca alla fiorentina”, that is a porterhouse steak, or taste the most famous Italian wines such as Chianti or Brunello di Montalcino.
Florence is a great city in which to stay in an apartment, using it as your base from which to explore the city and its surrounding landmarks. Don’t miss the huge selection that Oh-Florence.com has all over the city.
3. Tuscan Treasures
But there is more to Tuscany than just Florence: you can reach other amazing cities, plenty of landmarks and monuments such as the Torre di Pisa, Siena’s Piazza del Campo and San Gimignano historical center, three sites included in the world heritage list of UNESCO.
Why not also spend a day in the bucolic hills of Tuscany where it is possible to relax, drinking Chianti in little sips while you are enjoying a breath-taking panorama or participate to the mountain- bike competition “Colline Toscane” if you are a sportsman.

Dublin is eternally cheerful. It’s a bubbly city that’s full of quirky customs, great sights, big sounds and bags of personality. It has a fascinating heritage that shines through in a myriad of different ways, from its Viking roots and medieval architecture to its brewing history, courtesy of Arthur Guinness himself – all of which is re-told through a superb collection of museums and entertaining tours.
High on the hit-list of any visitor to Dublin must be a trip to the Guinness Storehouse. Described by Lonely Planet as “the beer-lover’s Disneyland”, this is a fun-filled tour of the history behind Ireland’s famous black beverage and an educational walk-through of the full brewing process. Explore the old grain storehouse and make your way through the visitor centre’s seven storeys as it winds around an attractive central atrium. Reward yourself at the top in the aptly named Gravity Bar, where you can enjoy a pint of black gold with a stunning panoramic view of the city. Even if you’re not a fan of Guinness, the views at the top are well worth tagging along for.
Another must-do activity in Dublin is the Viking Splash Tour. The tour starts on land in an amphibious bus-cum-boat which, led by a team of eternally cheerful wise-cracking guides, makes its way around the city past such sights as St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the Dublin Docklands, and various historic sights from the Viking, Medieval and Georgian eras. Then it’s straight into the River Liffey for a tour from the water. Cheesy it most certainly is, but it’s also a lot of fun.
When it comes to nightlife, Dublin is second to none. Check out the traditional pubs in Temple Bar, and make your way around the bright lights from one cheerful venue and live music session to the next. Café en Seine comes highly recommended. It’s a bustling place with a penchant for live music, ranging from jazz to big band swing, and promises plenty of exuberance to get your night off to a great start.
For somewhere to rest your head, try the Travelodge Dublin hotel. It offers a no-frills stay that’s perfect for budget-conscious travellers – it’s based within its own grounds in leafy Castleknock so you won’t be disturbed by all-night revellers.
Whatever you do here, you’ll soon find that Dublin is one of those places that once experienced is never forgotten – so don’t expect this trip to be your last…
