Marseille, France
Europe is a mecca for unlikely art ... from the repetitive arches of centuries-old buildings to the peeling yellow, pink and blue stucco of Italian seaside villages. In Marseille, I found this compilation of photos that produced a sort of art...

The Calanques de Cassis are also of Marseille, and stretch the swath of scenic coastline between the two cities. You can hike around and enjoy the French national park on foot, or tour by sea. This photo was taken on a 3-hour boat tour that...

91100 Trapani, Province of Trapani, Italy
We weren't even supposed to be in Trapani. A storm had hit the tiny Aeolian island of Lipari, and our cruise had been forced to change its course and dock, instead, in this unassuming Sicilian town. It was a Sunday, and I had wondered just how...

During our trip to Rome, we decided to check out the town of Sperlonga, located about 60 miles south of the city. Speckled with white-washed buildings reminiscent of the Greek Isles, we found an escape from the city in this charming little town....

On a recent trip to Corsica, I decided to bring my family to the Lavezzi Islands. Accessed by a one-hour ferry ride from the port of Bonifacio, the archipelago is a terrific destination for a day trip. The main island is a natural preserve covered...
