LONDON (2 May 2019) — This issue, we unveil Italy’s cool, contemporary side. We dip into stylish new hotels, fashion-forward renovations and slick openings, and ogle some of the country’s cutting-edge architecture to paint a modern portrait of a classic destination.

PLUS free with the magazine is the latest 132-page National Geographic Traveller Food, which looks at the growing vegan movement across the globe, which is seeing more and more chefs put plant-based dishes at the heart of their menus. We also get a taste of kebab culture in the Indian city of Lucknow, learn more about that Provençal, ratatouille, and celebrate pie ’n’ mash, one of the defining dishes of London’s East End.

Destinations: We explore the volcanoes of Nicaragua and the borderlands of western Hungary, and spend a long weekend in the Faroe Islands. Our photo story, meanwhile, focuses on the Mekong River, the border between Laos and Thailand.
