Inspiring Italy! Famous Italian food, design, Italian way of living, but also an enchanting land that no matter how many times you visit it seems to remain undiscovered and enveloped in a moat of long and chequered history that gave birth to so many beautiful towns and cities. The main tourist attractions are certainly the breathtaking cities of Rome, Venice, Milan, Florence and Napoli, however Italy also offers a plethora of less well-known places that still seem to manage to impress visitors inasmuch as on their way back home they already start planning another holyday to Italy.
Postcard perfect Portugal - Portugal is a country in southern Europe and together with Spain it divides the Iberian Peninsula. This country of a long history offers to tourists sights from the Iron age, the Roman Empire, more modern age of Portuguese expansion, colonization with discoveries and of course modern cities such as Lisbon and Porto.

It is a country of love and lovers. It is a country of aspiring artists who became known as rebels before getting their fair share of fame and glory.

Russia is the largest country in the world and at the same time one of the most stunningly beautiful ones.

One might say without fear of contradiction that Russia really ‘has it all’. It would literally take years to get to know all wonder and beauty of this stunningly beautiful country. From the imperial city of St. Petersburg, the main center Moscow and the sparkingly snowy Siberia, to restless Kamchatka, Baikal and Rostov on the Don River - wherever the tourist might like to go , they will be at a loss for words in front of the never- ending grandeur.

Remember that there is more to Greece than meets the eye -- Greece does not have merely Santorini, Mykonos, Rhodes and Crete, there are an incredible 227 inhabited islands and truth be it, some are more beautiful than others, but still we seriously doubt one can go to one of the Greek Islands and come back without wearing a smile on your face and tales to tell about the good times you had.
