Greece- Athens and beyond
Greece is beautiful, with the turquoise blue sea, sand, and idyllic structures of white and blue. It is a perfect holiday destination as one can combine a lot of sight-seeing and typical tourist activities whilst enjoying a little solitude and downtime at one of the more remote islands. To note, though, some remote islands in Greece may not have ATMs, so it would be best you withdraw your Euros, in the main city using your prepaid travel card, to avoid any hassle or inconvenience.
The Vatican City is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cities in the world; renowned for its treasures and masterpieces of Roman art and architecture. The well-known tourist attractions of Rome include the Colosseum, Vatican, Pantheon, Maxxi Museum and Piazza Navona.
