Nicknamed the land of the gods, Greece offers splendid archaeological sites … Rich and complete circuit for a first approach
Send everything waltz and come to Vienna! The capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire sets the pace for an entire country. Baroque at will, a bit outdated, downright theatrical … Vienna cultivates its rich past and even combines it with the present. Concentrated inside the Ring, a vast circular boulevard built on the site of the old ramparts, the heart of the old town is dominated by the Hofburg, the winter residence of Franz Joseph and his royal wife Sissi.
The one that was simply called laVille, is today discovered between ancient vestiges and architecture of the XXI century. Few are the cities where each pickaxe can still reveal archaeological treasures. Rome is one of them. Built below, above and next to its ancient remains, it has a breathtaking heritage.
Cradle of the movida, born at the end of the Seventies, the city has the hot blood. Very regularly, she indulges in the rhythm of night parties, Flamenco and bullfights. The arenas built on the Plaza de Toros are also a great gathering place for Madrilenians. Finally, Madrid is also home to Paseo del Arte, three of Spain’s most important museums: the Prado, the Thyssen-Bornemisza, and the Queen Sofia Modern Art Museum, where Picasso’s famous Guernica is on display.
Lisbon is the capital of Portugal, with a coastal location and hills. From the imposing Castle of St. George (Castelo de São Jorge), the view embraces the pastel-hued buildings of the old town, the Tagus estuary and the April 25 suspension bridge. Nearby, the National Museum of Azulejo traces 5 centuries of decorative ceramics. Let yourself be charmed by Lisbon.
