Avgår vid 5:00 PM
Med 28 århundraden av berömd historia är Rom fortfarande på första plats när det gäller oöverträffat äventyr. Staden som utlöste världens största rike är lika levande i våra dagar med ett virrvarr av gamla ruiner, världsberömd konst och livfull gatukultur. Här kan du leva la dolce vita, återkalla antika Roms storhetstid och snurra pastan runt gaffeln i en trattoria. Kör förbi månghundraåriga basilikor i en trehjulig Ape Calessino, eller beundra målningar av de italienska mästarna i Villa Borghese. Oavsett om det är Vatikanens andliga lockelse, charmen utmed Trasteveres bakgator, eller Colosseums kamptraditioner, så består den eviga staden med sina oändliga äventyr.

Messina is Sicily's panoramic gateway — located on the northeastern corner of the island, the city just kisses the boot of mainland Italy's southern tip. Get lost among the patchwork of churches and antique palaces. The Messina Cathedral is in the heart of the city, and its famous bell tower houses the largest mechanical clock in the world — every day at noon, the statues move to Schubert's "Ave Maria." In front of this church, you'll find the Fontana di Orione, a 16th-century fountain that's a work of art in itself, with sculptures of figures from ancient mythology. Cruise to Sicily and take a leisurely walk to the Sacrario di Cristo Re, a hilltop church with panoramic views of the town and the surrounding mountains.

Perched above the Adriatic Sea, Corfu, Greece is the second largest Ionian island, and its size is rivaled by its tremendous history and dynamic cultural identity.

See an Alternate Version of Venice

Ever wondered what Venice would look like without canals (and hordes of tourists)? Many structures in Koper, including the 15th-century Praetorian Palace and Da Ponte Fountain, were built during the time when the Republic of Venice controlled the city, so the resemblance can be uncanny. Other historical Koper architecture worth seeing includes the Cathedral of St. Mary's Assumption and Tito Square, which is a popular meeting point for locals.

Koper may offer fewer beaches than other cities you've visited, with just two — Mestna Plaza in the city center and Plaza Zusterna about a mile to the west — near town. But both are perfect if you're seeking a day of sun and surf. Plant yourself under one of the colorful umbrellas (and between locals) for a fun afternoon and take a dip in the crystal-clear water.
