Highlights & Sightseeing

Europe - Italy - Rome - St Peter's Square and Basilica

St. Peter's Square is a bustling piazza where the masses receive the Pope's weekly blessings. This ornate square frames the entrance to St. Peter's Basilica, where St. Peter was martyred and buried.

Europe - Greece - Mykonos - Windmills

An iconic feature of Mykonos, the windmills can been seen from almost every village on the island. Most of the windmill's were built in the 16th century, but a few were reconstructed in the middle of the 20th century.

Europe - Turkey - Kusadasi - Ephesus

Enter the city though the Magnesia Gate entrance and walk down a marble road to the ruins of this Roman provincial capital. The major sites are the Odeum, the Celsus Library, the Temple of Hadrian, the Fountain of Trajan and the Great Theater. The theater had seating for 25,000, and is the site where St. Paul preached to the Ephesians.

Europe - Venice - Ponte Chiodo

This unusual and small bridge that spans the Rio San Felice is one of two remaining in Venice. By far it is one of the most unique bridges in the city and one of the last of it's kind. Why is this bridge special? The tale goes that before the 17th century most of Venice's bridges most bridges did not have sides but after a night at the local watering hole Venetians used to fall into the canals. At some point in history, the city council decided all bridges must have sides so locals could make it home safely!
