Tuscany

Home to Chianti wine, the Medicis and the Strozzis, Michael Angelo's David, Elba Island where Napoleon was exiled, and the legendary cities of Florence and Pisa, Tuscany is the fertile crescent of Italy where art, history and the pleasures of life shine on. Evergreen landscapes and breathtaking sights serves as cradle to the Italian culture and civilization to thrive, and it remains today as one of the most appreciated Italian regions - one where the visitor might need to pinch on their arm to know they are not dreaming.

Fuerteventura

The second largest of the Canary Islands attract huge numbers of sun-worshippers and water sport practitioners in search of one thing: the most pristine beaches in the archipelago. You can't blame them. The golden sand, cool water and gentle sea breeze of Fuerteventura are head and shoulders above those of its neighbours. But the island has so much more to offer, from barren dessert scenery and fascinating volcanoes to colourful and characterful towns and pleasant harbour promenades, all of which visitors would be foolish to miss out on.

Both cities provide gateways to North America’s most visited national park, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Copenhagen

Copenhagen is a compact big city packed with historic buildings lining its narrow cobbled streets. Here you will find a great mix of world-class gastronomy, beautiful architecture, award-winning design, clean harbour baths, the unique, free town of Christiania, and the seat of the world’s oldest monarchy. It has been named one of the best cities to live in several times, and it was the first city in the world to be named the ‘Bike City’ by the International Cycling Union – a title to which the several hundred bike lanes bear witness.

Barcelona

Fanciful architecture and hip restaurants have come together with the sunny Spanish climate and beaches. This has transformed Barcelona in just a few decades from a rough port city to one of Europe’s—if not the world’s—premier destinations. Stroll along La Rambla, admire the Casa Calvet’s façade or the Casa Mila designed by Gaudi, visit the Market of la Boqueria or shop at El Corte Inglés, and sample some of the many bars, cafés and late night haunts while you’re at it.

Dresden

Dresden was known as both the 'Florence of the North' and the 'Venice of the River Elbe' before World War II destroyed most of this once magnificent Baroque city. But Dresden has managed to restore much of its former glory. The views from the banks of the Elbe and plentiful architectural delights, such as the rebuilt Frauenkirche or the famous Semper Opera, provide glimpses of what today’s vibrant Dresden once looked like. With 63 percent of its area devoted to woods and green spaces, Dresden is also one of the greenest cities in Europe.

The place is buzzing with people from all corners of the world. The city has excellent restaurants, exclusive shops, beautiful parks, a vibrant cultural life and interesting museums. A practical aspect is that Geneva is geographically quite small. You can wander around the town in an hour, and it is easy to go on quick one-day excursions to the idyllic surroundings.
Mojácar, Spain

Historical centre

The houses in Mojácar appear tocling to the mountainside creating a great visual impact: the white of the houses, the brown of earth and the blue of the sea and the sky. The roofs are flat or terrace, giving the impression of cubic houses, impenetrable, where from outside tourists cannot see its labyrinthine and steep streets. In the past, people used adobe and stone, forming vaulted ceilings but today, white is the main colour of Mojácar´s architecture. Mojácar village consists of grouped houses, graduated and adapted to the topography and traditional architecture of the land
