Everything is big in terms of grandeur and size but not in vertical: in Washington, in fact, there are no skyscrapers. Bizarre? No. It’s even better this way. For example the Washington Mall is incredibly vast and neat and amazing: start from the Lincoln Memorial (and admire all the others, such as the Korean, Viet Nam, World War II) to get to Capitol Hill and you’ll understand how huge it is
There’s no place like Venice in the world: you’ll fall in love with its canals and bridges and spectacular views. Rich in museums and historical buildings, you’ll soon find that its fame is really deserved
Paris is a marvellous city, also know as “City of Lights” and “City of Love”: indeed it is very romantic and each street has a peculiar building or monument which reminds its ancient history. Explore it quarter by quarter and let you tempt by its charm
Rent a car and drive: the most beautiful sceneries are to be found driving along Highway 1 (just everywhere, north to south), Highway 319 in Apalachicola National Forest, Interstate 10 just outside Pensacola, and Highway 98 near Fort Walton Beach
Glamour, chic, rich: this is Miami Beach! An incredible nightlife after dinner in one of its famous restaurants, days spent on its sunny lazy beaches, an extensive Art Deco District: a vibrant and multicultural centre
Few cities can show as many amazing sights and fantastic attractions as London: the Big Ben, the Tower Bridge, St Paul’s Cathedral and Trafalgar Square to name a few. London’s vibrant culture keeps evolving: new trends start here and then spread themselves beyond the Channel in continental Europe
The Roman Forum was the political, commercial and religious center of Ancient Rome: walking among arches, temples in ruins, stone paved streets towards the Coliseum is a unique experience
A city surrounded by mountains and beaches: almost incredible but this is Barcelona! A sunny climate comes with architectural wonders, a very good cuisine and its renowned Movida
This is the very heart of Florence: start here your visit, in this strangely shaped square whose renowned Palace is one of the symbols of this town; near the front door, there’s a copy of the David by Michelangelo. The Uffizi Gallery is one of the most famous museums in the world: art masterpieces from 13th to 18th century reside here
Nobody thinks about this as a very beautiful city: indeed it is! Easy to get to and to visit, Brussels is a tranquil and relaxed city. Moreover it is the administrative center of Europe. Climate is its only flaw: you can experience spring, summer and fall (even winter, sometimes) in just one day
Situated along the Pearl River, Guangzhou has a lot of up-to-date shiny glassy skyscrapers and some densely-populated districts, in which everything is to be found (technological items, dry fishes, clothes, all kinds of food, etc.). Every corner is a hidden treasure
Hundreds of boats sail each day to take tourists to the small islands of Halong Bay. And at least a one-day journey from Hanoi to get here is compelling. Fishermen’s villages on the water, big caves to explore, a tasty seafood, an amazing view: everything seems perfect for a visit
You need two days to visit the entire complex thoroughly. So start with the Petit Circuit and then proceed to the Grand Circuit and you will admire, in no hurry, this incredible place. You can rent a car (with driver: never drive by yourself in South-eastern Asia), a small bike, a bicycle or a tuk-tuk: prices change every year so it’s useless to list them. In sunny days it’s very hot: street vendors are everywhere and finding a bottle of water is never a problem.
Bangkok is the most vibrant city in South-eastern Asia, cosmopolitan and exotic, ancient and modern, frenetic and enjoyable. Chinatown and its street vendors, Dusit and the Ananda Samakhom Throne Hall, Sukhumvit with its street markets, the busy Prathumwan quarter, the floating market in Taling Chan: every place deserves a visit but absolutely do not forget the Royal Palace and the Wat Pho temple (with a giant golden Buddha)
A subtropical climate, skyscrapers everywhere, busy people, mountains of electronic gadgets, wonderful sceneries suspended from hills to the sea: this is Hong Kong!
A continent or just an island? Maybe both! Deserts, mountains, tropical rainforests, a few fertile plains: undoubtedly there are a lot of contrasts in this country, whose cities and population are concentrated along eastern and south-eastern coasts. Nonetheless its heart is what fascinates the most: red mountains and red sand are what the world knows better of Australia
Bright lights, towering skyscrapers, frantic people: welcome to the Big Apple! New York City is one of the most fascinating cities in the entire world and its museums, restaurants, night-life, architecture and trends will conquer you
Amsterdam is undoubtedly one the most charming cities in Europe: its canals, its narrow and crooked houses, its nightlife and its care to culture are unique. Due to the relatively small dimensions of the touristic part, it’s easy to explore this city by foot, trams and bicycles.
