Italy- Rome, Pisa, Padua, and Venice
In Italy, the beautiful country in Southern Europe, you can discover the greatest number of Unesco World Heritage Sites, embrace the ancient art and monument and the cuisine that’s adorned by the entire world. Italy is an enriched destination with a beautiful coast, alpine lakes, mountains and such picturesque countryside, pizza, pasta, and gelato aside. Its capital city, Rome, overflows with culture and fashion. The Colosseum, Pantheon, Trevi fountain- Rome has all the big-ticket attractions. Pisa is another enriching city in Tuscany that beckons the photo-enthusiasts for the cliched yet a must-take picture, holding up the Leaning Tower of Pisa. When in Europe, Venice is a must touch down for a reason. With the Grand Canals and astonishing Venetian architecture that’s built on a lagoon, the city remains the same as it was six hundred years ago except for the tourist aplenty today. Venice, comprising of many Island districts harbours a spine-tingling history of centuries.
Did you know that apart from different police uniforms, there is no obvious distinction between Rome and the Vatican? This pocket-sized country is like stepping into a Michelangelo’s painting. You will fall head over heels for the Vatican. The Vatican museums, The Sistine Chapel and St.Peter’s Basilica are the main places of interest.

The thick curtain of forests, stunning landscapes, vintage windmill-studded villages scenes, Instagramable river valleys, and vineyards and charming canals put together, Germany is a treasure trove of nature.
Switzerland - Zurich, Lucerne
Switzerland is a beauty. No wonder it tops so many travellers’ bucket lists. For some of us it was Heidi (cartoon), for some it was Bollywood movies and for the rest it was the Swiss Tourism unveiling interesting facets of the country with their ad campaigns, providing the wanderlust to witness Swiss Alps. It is one thing to know about something like this, but entirely another to witness it. Switzerland is worth every penny you spend on it.
Austria - Innsbruck, Wattens
