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.

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.

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...
