Sicily is Italy in its extreme. Its mountains are more marvellous, the food more intense, its history more alive and the weather better than mainland Italy. You can have any kind of vacation you dream of: You can immerse yourself in culture and history, hike on a volcano in the morning and dive among archaeological artefacts in the evening. And if you want to treat your senses to a feast, Sicily is a festival of culinary endeavours as well.
Bask in the beauty of Barcelona, that has not only amazing Modernisme architecture but an amazing history as well.
And a city centre that reflect the decades gone by: Romans, Christians, Jews and artists have all made their mark on the capital of Catalunya.

Rome is probably the city in Europe where ancient history is the most visible. You can’t stroll through the Forum without tripping over ancient ruins or walk around the historic centre without encountering one imposing antique structure after another.
History is alive here like no other place and defines the Eternal City. And nothing shouts “Roman history” more than these iconic buildings.
One of the great things about Rome is, that not only its ancient history is everywhere you look. Its art is as well.
On the piazzas, baroque sculptures crown trickling fountains. Roaring palazzos attest to the potency of their patrons. Galleries show us ancient as well as modern art. Museums display centuries of decorative skills.
Rome is filled to the brim with all this wonderful art. Some are free for everyone to enjoy, others are secured behind ticket counters. But they’re all waiting for you to come admire them.
