Cefalù, clear water and priceless artistic heritage

Discover its hidden treasures, full of a mix of myth and history, such as the Cathedral, the Monastery and the Palazzo Vescovile, which are included on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Along with the one-week stay, the other prize is an Italian language course for two people at the Cefalù Solemar Academy. The travel to Cefalù is not included in the prize.

The prize

As previously announced, the prize of this amazing contest is a one-week-stay in Cefalù with an Italian language course for two people at the Solemar Academy. Valerio, the school manager, tells us «We have lots of different Italian language courses for all levels: intensive, extensive, private, group or Skype lessons. We have set the maximum number of participants for each group to 9 people, in order to assure our students faster learning. We also offer free time activities, as we organize guided tours, day trips, wine tasting experiences, boat trips etc..» The winner can choose, in agreement with the school, the period of the stay (until September 2021) and the level of the Italian language course. The overnight accommodation is in a double room in a shared apartment run by the Solar Academy.

Berlin Ice Cream Week: how does it work?

We have asked 25 ice-cream makers to think about a special and imaginative flavour just for the event and to create it with their high-quality ingredients only. And there’s even more! The special flavour will cost just 1€ per scoop for the whole event week. Taking part in the event will be as easy as eating an ice-cream cone: you just have to go to the ice-cream shops (here the full list) and ask for the Berlin Ice-Cream Week special flavour. And for those who don’t have an Instagram account, there is also an offline contest! Pick the event flyer in one of the participating ice cream shops and during the event ask for the sticker every time you visit a different ice cream place. If you collect at least 5 stickers, send us a picture of your map at: You can win a 50€ voucher for an ice cream shop of your choice among the event participants!

Happy ice cream tour everyone!
