This city is packed full of sights, with thousands of years of history layered upon itself - you`ll find everything here from Roman ruins to Renaissance art. It`s also home to fantastic food, the Vatican City and sights galore!


Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights

2 nights in Assisi

A medieval hill, known for being the birthplace of Saint Francis and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, its represents `a series of masterpieces of man`s creative spirit.` Everything revolves around its most renowned citizen, St. Francis, Patron Saint of Italy: from the Basilica, which is dedicated to the Saint and contains his tomb, to the hermitage (Eremo delle Carceri), a few miles outside the town walls, where St. Francis used to retreat in prayer.

Must See`s:
Basilica of Saint Francis (UNESCO World Heritage Site from the 13th century); Church of Santa Chiara (houses the San Damiano Crucifix which spoke to Francis in 1206); San Rufino Cathedral (12th century Romanesque façade); Rocca Maggiore Castle; Roman Amphitheater from the first century surrounded by medieval houses; Piazza del Commune (with the 13th century Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo and Palazzo dei Priori and the Temple of Minerva facing the square.




2 nights in Florence

Art, culture, food and wine, Florence has it all! A city rich in beauty, it is a wondrous collection of buildings, paintings and sculptures, leading some to say by simply walking its streets Florence is an open museum to all who visit. Known as the birthplace of the Renaissance, when a period of great wealth and collection of art took place (between 14th to 17th centuries), today Florence has almost 70 museums to explore not including its many churches full of artistic treasures too. This is truly one of the world`s must see sights!

The Duomo Complex, Church of Santa Croce, The Cathedral, The Uffizi Gallery, Galleria dell`Accademia, Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Vecchio, Pitti Palace, Boboli Gardens and so much more!



2 nights in Venice

With sumptuous palaces and romantic waterways, Venice is straight out of an 18th-century Canaletto masterpiece. No matter how many times you have seen it in movies or TV commercials, the real thing is more surreal and dreamlike than you ever imagined. Its landmarks, the Basilica di San Marco and the Palazzo Ducale are exotic mélanges of Byzantine, Gothic, and Renaissance styles. It is full of secrets, ineffably romantic, and - at times - given over entirely to pleasure. You must walk everywhere in Venice and where you cannot walk, you go by water.


Recommended Stay: 2 nights
Must See`s:
People-watch at Piazza San Marco, Stroll Across the Rialto Bridge, Get Lost in the Endless Canals, Admire the Basilica Santa Maria della Salute, Visit the San Giorgio dei Greci, Walk Around the Jewish Ghetto, Learn About Venice`s Musical History, Tour Venice`s Unique Architecture at Campo Santa Maria Formosa, Celebrate One of Venice'` Many Festivals, Go Window Shopping, and so much more!

Visitors only need a few moments to walk the pedestrian-only streets in the city center to feel the old-world historic charm, coupled with the youthful energy exuding from the local university population. Beautiful and vibrant, travelers will quickly learn that Ljubljana has a lot to offer to all who visit. You can sip a cup of coffee and enjoy live music in the Metelkova mesto commune, sail lazily along the winding Ljubljanica River, browse art galleries and take in a ballet, all within walking distance from each other.


Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Ljubljana Castle, Ljubljanica River, Metelkova mesto, Cathedral of St. Nicholas, Triple Bridge, Butchers` Bridge, Cobblers` Bridge, Congress Square, Preseren Square, Slovenska cesta, Mount Saint Mary, Tivoli Park, and so much more!

Zagreb is the cultural, scientific, economic, political and administrative center of Croatia. It is known as the `City of Museums,` as there are more of them per square foot than any other city in the world. Zagreb is a vibrant, modern destination with a variety of shops, quality restaurants and sports and recreation facilities. The historical part of the city to the north is comprised of the Upper Town and Kaptol, a medieval urban complex of churches, palaces, museums, galleries and government buildings. Of particular note is the breathtaking Gothic-style Zagreb Cathedral, from which the entire city was born.

Kaptol, Upper Town, Lower Town, Zagreb Cathedral, St. Mark`s Church, Art Pavilion, Mestrovic Pavilion, Mimara Museum, Lotrscak Tower, Kamenita vrata, Ilica, King Tomislav Square, Lenuci`s Horseshoe, Ban Josip Jelacic Square, and so much more!



2 nights in Split

Split is the second-largest city in Croatia, and its history stretches back over 1,700 years. The Roman Emperor Diocletian built his lavish retirement palace here. It is the largest and best-preserved example of a Roman palace left in the world, and it is listed on the register of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Diocletian`s Palace is the gem of the Old Town, a pedestrianized zone which includes the beautiful riverwalk called Riva. It could not blend tradition and modern life more perfectly; buzzing shops, restaurants, and bars are situated alongside monuments and buildings dating from the Roman era. The dramatic backdrop of mountains bleeds into the sea, giving an atmospheric setting to this stunning city.
