Now you only have to choose one of the destinations below and you're ready to go!
One of the most visited cities in the world. Of course, this has everything to do with the many historical sights. After all, Rome was the capital of the Roman empire. Next to the centuries old Coloseum and beautiful churches, you can also visit the imposing Vatican city. Your holiday isn't complete when you haven't tossed a coin in the famous Trevi fountain for a bit of extra luck. It's important that you do take a break from this gorgeous city once in a while to drink a nice cappuccino at Piazza Navona for instance. Or you can go to one of the small, but many characteristic streets to order some fresh gelato. Rome is on the first place in our top 3, because of the variety that this city has to offer.
To not add cities like Paris and London for once, despite of the fact that these are beautiful cities, we get to the enchanting Ljubljana. This compact Slovenian capital is perfect for a city trip. You will get a true holiday experience. It's a creative city with relax atmosphere. A lot of students, artists and musicians walk through the small streets of the old city. You can visit the 13th century city castle that has a great view over the blue green colored river, the magnificent city and the mountain tops of the Julian Alps.
The third place goes to the breathtaking Zagreb. Perfect for a short holiday, or city trip. The capital of Croatia is at least 300 years old, but despite of this mega hip. Zagreb is devided in Gornji Grad and Donji Grab, also called the 'upper city' and 'downtown'. The cool thing about this is that the parts are connected by a bright blue tram which pivots back and forth all day long. The small but cultural city offers many great restaurants where you can eat a very low cost, but nice diner. When the stomachs are full, it's time to visit one of the many museums. The atmosphere in Zagreb is very relax. The inhabitants are super nice and the city centre has a car free zone. All resources for the perfect holiday.
So, pack your passport, your STOX Energy Socks and enjoy your city trip!
