The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Explore hidden gems such as National Gallery of Victoria and Sovereign Hill. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Australian Centre for the Moving Image and Melbourne Museum. Explore Melbourne's surroundings by going to Warramunda Estate (in Coldstream), Kyneton Museum (in Kyneton) and Yileena Park (in Yarra Glen). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of St Paul's Cathedral, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, explore the activities along Lake Daylesford, and don't miss a visit to Block Arcade.

Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Villa d'Este and Centro Storico Associazione Centro Storico. Visit Villa Borghese and Basilica di San Pietro in Vincoli for their historical value. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Rome: Spoleto (Mura di Spoleto, La Rocca, &more), Chiesa di San Salvatore (in Vasanello) and Orvieto (Museo Emilio Greco, Duomo di Orvieto, &more). There's much more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Piazza Venezia, take in the spiritual surroundings of Monastero Di S.Benedetto, step into the grandiose world of Castello Caetani, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica di Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri.
