Portofino


The birthplace of the modern resort, the French Riviera or Cote d’Azur, has long been a magnet for the Jet Set, thanks to its Mediterranean climate and beautiful coastline. The beaches of Pampelonne in Ramatuelle are enviable, and provide a hip hangout for today’s Jet Set crowd. While in St. Tropez, try a Tarte Tropezienne, a delicious pastry named by the woman who put St. Tropez on the map –Brigitte Bardot.
波托菲诺(Portofino)
位于法国的⾥里维埃拉(Riviera)和蔚蓝海岸(Cote d’Azur),是现代式度假村的发源地,它拥有地中海⽓气候和美丽 的海岸线,因此⼀一直深得Jet Set的爱戴。在拉⻢马蒂埃勒(Ramatuelle)的庞普洛纳(Pampelonne)海滩美得教⼈人妒 忌,促成了今天 Jet Set 們聚集的时髦热点。⽽而在圣托⻉贝兹(St. Tropez),可别忘了要品尝当地驰名的圣托⻉贝兹 蛋糕 (Tropezienne Tart),这个美味的甜点是由昔⽇日把圣托⻉贝兹加到地图上的碧姬·巴铎(Brigitte Bardot)命名 的。

St.Tropez

In the 60’s this tiny island south of the Italian mainland was catapulted into the limelight as a haven for jet- setting stars and celebrities. Sophia Loren, Armani and Valentino and numerous other celebrities were frequent visitors. Each summer, the paparazzi would set up their cameras outside the Quisisana hotel- palace on the trail of the Hollywood greats.
In the 70’s Jackie Kennedy became Jackie Onassis cruising the Greek seas in her husband’s 325-foot pleasure boat, ‘Christina O’. (Rumor says her sister Lee Radziwell, an American Socialite was going to leave her husband to marry Aristotle Onassis, but Jackie was quicker!)
Italian novelist Alberto Moravia invented the term Jet Set in 1965, meaning simply People who travel by jet.
圣托⻉贝兹(St. Tropez)

上世纪60年代,位于意⼤大利南部的这个⼩小岛渐露⻛风头,成为Jet Set明星和名⼈人的避⻛风港。索菲亚·罗 兰(Sophia Loren),阿玛尼(Armani),华伦天奴(Valentino)还有数之不尽的名⼈人都是这⾥里的常客。每 年夏天,狗仔队都带著照相机在Quisisana酒店 -搜寻皇宫外好莱坞巨星的踪影。 70年代,杰奎琳·肯尼迪(Jackie Kennedy)改嫁成为杰奎琳·奥纳⻄西斯(Jackie Onassis),她乘著丈夫 那325英尺⻓长的游艇- ‘Christina O’巡航希腊海域。(传闻她那位当时是美国社交名媛的妹妹李·拉⻬齐 维尔,本来就打算离开⾃自⼰己的丈夫嫁给亚⾥里⼠士多德·奥纳⻄西斯,但谁知杰奎琳⽐比她速度更快呢!) 意⼤大利⼩小说家阿尔⻉贝托·莫拉维亚在1965年创造了Jet Set这个专有名词,形容那些搭⻜飞机旅⾏行的⼈人。

 Capri - It all started here!

The idyllic fishing village of Portofino has been popular for centuries, however in the, it truly became a hot spot of celebrities and the rich and famous.

⼀一切从这⾥里开始! 波托菲诺如诗似画的⽥田园⻛风光和渔村景致确实流⾏行了好⼏几个世纪,然⽽而在50年代,这⾥里才是真正的 名流富豪时常出没的社交热点。该处的Spendido酒店经常举办宾客盛会,包括温莎公爵和其夫⼈人 (the Duke and Duchess of Windsor),伊丽莎⽩白·泰勒 (Elizabeth Taylor) 和理查德·伯顿(Richard Burton)都是该处的常客。船⼀一般都在⽇日落时份到达,从码头乘搭⼩小船舶到Spendido,在那⾥里的酒 吧,你可以找到最有利的位置俯瞰⻉贝⾥里尼(Bellini)的海港。

Mykonos

Mykonos became the new playground for the jet-set crowd, playing host to other glamorous Jet Setters like Grace Kelly and Brigitte Bardot. Thanks to its proximity to the mainland, Mykonos was one of the first Greek islands to become an international travel destination. During the late '60s and early '70s, Mykonos was famed as a haunt for the rich. The island's nightlife - then and now - was a glittering whirl of colored lights, music, and parties.
