Save Place
00184 Rome, Metropolitan City of Rome, Italy
No matter how many postcards you've seen of Rome's iconic Colosseum, you just don't get it until you pass beneath its crumbling arches. Built by Emperor Vespasian in 72 C.E., the huge amphitheater held 50,000 spectators and marked its...
Save Place
Dumbo, Brooklyn, NY 11201, USA
Of the various abbreviations for different neighborhoods in New York, DUMBO wins the prize for cutest: It stands for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. It is a little off the beaten path, though you may find yourself here if you have...
Save Place
Rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris, France
This former royal palace is one of the largest museums in the world, and its art collection is considered one of the most comprehensive. It contains around 400,000 works, although—mercifully, perhaps—not all are on display at any one...
Save Place
Champs-Élysées, Paris, France
“People can either be over-the-top romantic about Paris, or they think life is ridiculous here,” saysDavid Lebovitz.“I try to strike a middle ground.” Lebovitz, an American, worked for 13 years in the pastry department at Chez Panisse in Berkeley,...
Save Place
The Shangri-La is one of the most prestigious properties in Toronto, and not just because of the nightly rates. What truly sets it apart from other luxury hotels is the impeccable welcome, spacious suites, and a heaven-like spa. Not to mention the...

375 Queen Elizabeth Dr, Ottawa, ON K1S 5M5, Canada
A quick Bixi bike ride from downtown (Ottawa's bike share program), 8 Locks Flat is a place where you can enjoy a beer while watching the world go by: pedestrians and cyclists on the bike path, kayaks and yachts in the canal, and motorcycles and...
Save Place
1012 Avenue du Mont-Royal E #101, Montréal, QC H2J 1X6, Canada
You know how they say that Montreal is a happy mixture of North America and Europe? Well, if there's one place in the city that's truly unique, and not influenced by any other colony, it's Plateau Mont-Royal. Located just a few minutes north of...
Save Place
Piazza di Trevi, 00187 Roma RM, Italy
Fontana di Trevi is, as it should be, one of the most visited landmarks in Rome. Seeing it is worth the blind stumble through narrow stone streets and alleyways. But do so at night (and in the rain, if possible) to be rewarded with...
Save Place
Rindermarkt 1, 80331 München, Germany
On a clear day, head to St. Peter’s in the heart of Munich’s Old Town and get ready to climb. Visitors can ascend 306 stairs to a lookout that wraps around the church’s clocktower. After braving the narrow staircase, you’re rewarded with bird’...

Carretera Chetumal Puerto Juárez Km 240, locales 1 & 2, módulo B, 77780 Q.R., Mexico
While in Tulum you must go to a cute little boutique at the Coqui Coqui Hotel...it is a great little shop filled with cute clothes and while you are shopping you feel like you are on the beach as the floor is all sand. My favorite aspect of the...
Save Place
Zürich, Switzerland
Even in the rain, Zurich's Old Town is romantic. The cobblestone walkways twist their way throughout the area, making for some particularly beautiful walking tours.
Save Place
1001 Boul St-Laurent, Montréal, QC H2Z 1J4, Canada
While the map says it's located in Montreal's Chinatown, do not let yourself be scared of labels. The area is more of a melting pot of several Asian cultures rather than the Chinese alone—luckily for us, if I do say so: the more the merrier! Pho...
Save Place
Tunnel Mountain Road, Banff, AB T0L, Canada
Camping at Tunnel Mountain Village was my first experience as an adult staying in a Parks Canada campground, and I have to say: Canada, I'm impressed. Even though it's a large campground with 618 sites, it was still a very positive camping...
Save Place
Sestiere Cannaregio, 5013, 30121 Venezia VE, Italy
Fondamenta Nuove hangs on the back of the Jewish Ghetto, serving primarily as a transportation gateway to other parts of Venice by vaporetto. In the evening, the waters slowly begin to steady. Each surface captures the twilight in anticipation of...

51st Floor, 55 Bloor St W, Toronto, ON M4W 1A5, Canada
$$$$
The CN Tower offers great views of the city, but you’re enclosed in glass and you miss seeing one of the best parts of Toronto's skyline: the tower that you’re inside of. When you go to the 51st floor at Panorama Lounge, you get to take the entire...
Save Place
Quintana Roo 109, Tulum, Q.R., Mexico
We decided to visit the Gran Cenote outside of Tulum and were expecting to swim with turtles and fish. While there were a few pet turtles and goldfish, the only real wildlife were bats that hang up in the cave openings. The Gran Cenote is more...
Save Place
Carretera Federal & Cancún - Chetumal Km 230 307, 77780 Tulum, Q.R., Mexico
While not as large as other ancient Mayan cities in the region, Tulum draws in visitors for its stunning setting of centuries-old temples perched on a cliff by the Caribbean Sea. You’ll pass a large market with souvenirs, a casual Mexican...

353 West St, New York, NY 10011, USA
Hudson River Park, running along the south west side of Manhattan is one of the best places to view a sunset in New York City. Locals may abhor that in doing so, you're looking at New Jersey but I think it's a small price to pay for a beautiful...
