Italy

For centuries <b>Italy</b> has drawn foreign visitors - mostly for its architectural, artistic, and scenic splendors. Italy can truly be all things to all people. From the passion and excitement of noisy urban crowds to the quiet, rural idyll where the traditional life can be experienced. Italy's great cities are replete with rich attractions and culture alongside some of the most pristine beaches and spectacular mountains in the world.
Greece

<b>Greece</b> is THE land of ancient sites and architectural treasures: the Acropolis in Athens, the amphitheater of Epidaurus, the reconstructed palace at Knossos, the belly button of the cosmos at Delphi, fallen columns galore on the sacred island of Delos, and frescoed Minoan palaces on Crete. But don't expect a visit there to be a sober study of the ancient world, the Greek propensity for partying dates back to Dionysus. Then there are 1400 islands to explore. Greece is much more than what you were taught at school or the predictable summer image of glorious sunsets and sandy beaches.
Egypt

<b>Egypt</b> is a fascinating country filled with famed ancient monuments such as the Pyramids and the Sphinx with a history dating back thousands of years. Witness some of the magnificent wildlife living along the Nile including rare birds such as spot squacco herons, hoopoes, and the mighty crocodiles. In the arid desert see Shiatta Gazelles and flamingos, and the vibrant coral reefs of Marsa Alam where mantas and dolphins swim.
