National Geographic Traveller (UK) - April 2016 cover
  • Cover Story: In this month’s cover story we reveal Italy’s hidden cultural treasures. From a secret, art-laden corridor in the Uffizi Gallery to the necropolis under St Peter’s Basilica, these are the places that may have escaped your attention.
  • Destinations: We also meet the curious creatures of Costa Rica on a road and river tour; head to Royal Belum State Park in Malaysia’s far north; reveal the sobering tale of Krakow’s Jewish community; and explore the colourful carnivals and quaint dockyards in Antigua and Barbuda.
