The island of Bermuda is the one I really felt in love with. Here the time stops and the theme is a palm paradise that never ends.
The first place I discovered is the historic Royal Naval Dockyard in the West End of the island. This was a former Royal Navy stronghold and is now a place for beautiful shops, a craft market, a national museum, some really yummy restaurants.
Dockyard is also the team base for the 35th America’s Cup presented by Louis Vuitton of which I had the fortune to see part of the races, as being there just in the period of the America’s Cup.
The national Museum of Bermuda
Here you can get to know the island’s legendary history at the National Museum of Bermuda. Here I could see which cannons, shipwreck artefacts, small watercraft and artwork that are kept in the buildings of the former Keep Fort.
One of the most beautiful details is the dramatic mural depicting four centuries of Bermuda history, painted by a local artist Graham Foster.
When you checked all the surroudings of the museum, you can stop by the dolphins where you can watch them swim and see their show.
Delicious Food Places
After al of the wandering around and discovering all the secret places of this amazing place, a good meal is what makes the perfect cherry on the top of a bermudian day. In Dockyard there are three places that I can advise you to go. The one I love the most is Bone Fish, where my favourite meal was the tuna tartare that was the best I ever had. The other two are Caffe Amici, where is perfect to take an aperitivo ( the Rum Swizzle ) and some finger food to start your evening, as it is also an italian restaurant and the third is the Frog and Onion, where you can order more traditional english-oriented dishes and a good beer.
