Eternal City

Aptly nicknamed the Eternal City, Rome is the birthplace of the Roman Empire, one of the world's greatest civilizations ever.
Get out of town with these interesting Rome side-trips: Tivoli (Villa Adriana & Villa d'Este). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at St. Peter's Basilica, don't miss a visit to Roman Forum, explore the world behind art at Galleria Borghese, and ponder the design of Trevi Fountain.

Province of Alicante travel guide

Beaches · Nightlife · Landmarks
One of the country’s most prosperous regions, Alicante Province is known for near-perfect climatic conditions, arguably the best in the country, and a series of sandy beaches and seaside resorts ideal for a relaxing holiday. Despite the prosperity driven by tourism, modernity runs right alongside tradition in this province, and visitors are often surprised to find hamlets completely unaffected by the 21st century hidden in the rugged mountains of the interior. A region of contrasts, the province is home to a diverse population, including a huge community of Nordic residents who have found homes away from home in the small settlements along the coast.
