Travel Agenda: Capella Ixtapa; Amanresorts' Villa Milocer; Circumnavigando Festival
Saturday 13 December 2008
The Capella Ixtapa opens, between Mexico's Sierra Madre mountains and the Pacific Ocean. Its 59 luxurious guestrooms and suites spill down a cliff-side overlooking the coastline of the state of Guerrero (capellaixtapa.com).
The opening of Amanresorts' Villa Milocer in Montenegro materialises on Monday. The former royal residence completes the first stage of the restoration of Sveti Stefan (amanresorts.com). Over in the Caribbean, the route lost between Gatwick and Grenada with XL's demise is set to be launched again on Wednesday by Monarch's charter division; flights will alsocontinue on to Tobago (monarchholidays.co.uk).

Genoa might seem a fitting location for the Circumnavigando Festival. But rather than a celebration of its continent-exploring progeny, this festival showcases circus and street theatre, from 18-26 December (circumnavigando.com). Also defying the wintry weather is Turin, where the streets will be illuminated by an open-air exhibition of light installations until 11 January (comune.torino.it).
