AMSTERDAM: Discover the Art & Architecture of the Dutch
The Dutch are famous for their master painters (Vermeer, Van Rijn, Hals), tulips, windmills, cheese, and bicycling—though not necessarily in that order. Amsterdam, the largest city and capital of the Netherlands, is most famous for its impressive Grachtengordel, the 17th-century canals that have been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2010.
PARIS: Discover the City of Light
Paris is known as the City of Light for good reason. Initially called La Ville-Lumière due to its central role in the Age of Enlightenment, the nickname later referred to the innovative gas lamps lining the streets – Paris was the first European city to use them. While the stimulating intellectual environment remains to this day, it is still Paris’s unparalleled display of light that leaves the most lasting impression; even for those who have visited the city countless times.

While the name of the country in which it has stood has changed over the millennia, Rome—the Eternal City—has endured as a capital city by the same name for more than 2,500 years. As one of the birthplaces of modern civilization, Rome is a living, breathing museum. It is home to some of the world’s most important and inspiring historical sites and artifacts. On any given day, you can marvel at the architecture of the Colosseum and the Pantheon, toss three coins for good luck into the Trevi Fountain, walk the Spanish Steps, see famous works of art at the Galleria Borghese, and immerse yourself in relics of the Roman Catholic faith in the Vatican.
ISTANBUL: BEAUTY ON THE BOSPHORUS
Originally named Constantinople by the Romans, the city has seen three major eras. The first was as the center of the Western part of the Roman Empire.
