A Flying Visit To See Naples In One Day

Naples
If you are heading to the Amalfi Coast or Southern Italy you must add Naples to your itinerary. Even if you are pressed for time I found that it was easy to visit Naples in one day. I like to research a place that I am planning on visiting in some depth. Isn’t it amazing how what we read influences...

See The Best Sights In Maputo In A Day

Maputo Beach
If you are planning a trip to Mozambique you will probably fly into the capital city, Maputo. It is worth spending a day exploring the best sights in Maputo before heading further afield. Mozambique was originally a Portuguese Colony. These influences can still be seen dotted around the city, but much the city was destroyed during the civil war that...

Göreme Cappadocia Travel Guide : Discover The Magic

Turkish rugs
I made up my mind to go ballooning in Cappadocia but I had no idea of what else the region had to offer. When I searched for Göreme Cappadocia Travel Guide there was surprisingly little information available so I arrived with no preconceived ideas. Göreme was voted one of the 16 most beautiful towns in the world. It is a...

Weekend In Rome : Top 10 Attractions

Piazza Navona
Rome is a city where you are surrounded by stories of the past and I love it! The thought that I could be standing on a spot where Julius Caesar made history, for example, blows my mind. It is impossible to see all the main attractions over a weekend in Rome, but I think that you will be able...

What To Do In Český Krumlov The Fairy Tale Town

Castle Tower in Cesky Krumlov
I had read so much about Cesky Krumlov and not all of it was good. If I had based my decision on what I had read I probably wouldn't have visited. I would have missed seeing a town as pretty as any in a fairy tale. Researching what to do in Cesky Krumlov was not particularly inspiring either, but once I...

Bratislava Travel Guide : The Highlights

If you have seen either of the movies “Euro Trip” or “Hostel" you will most definitely have the wrong impression of Bratislava. I can assure you that it is totally safe and nothing at all like it is portrayed.  Bratislava is laid back and the town oozes old world charm. It really should be included in your Eastern European...

Zagreb In One Day : The Sights In A Nutshell

Zagreb
Zagreb, Croatia's capital city, is not a destination that is on a travellers “must see” list. Most people head to Croatia to spend time at the coast. It is understandable as the coastal cities are really beautiful. I discovered that the town is easy to get around and you can see the main sights of  Zagreb in one day without too...

Milan In One Day : The Ultimate Guide

Duomo Milan roof detail
Milan was not a destination that I thought of visiting. A friend of mine moved to the city a while ago so it was a great excuse to visit and catch up and I discovered just how easy it was to see Milan in one day. The first thing that surprised me about the city was that part of it...

How To Visit Venice In 3 Days Easily

Grand Canal Venice
There was so much that I wanted to do that I doubted that it would be possible to visit Venice in 3 days, but I was mistaken. We arrived in Venice late, on a foggy evening in December convinced that we would see nothing much with the fog set in. Finding our way from the vaporetto stop at St...
