The Eternal City is just that. It has endured thousands of years, and still today is abuzz with always-tan Romans zipping around on scooters and beautiful people enjoying la Dolce Vita. Pick a few of the must-see sights in the center but then retreat into more local neighborhoods like Trastevere, Pigneto,Foot Joy Contour Casual shoes Tan Medium (Pick Size) 54258VASQUE MERCURY LADIES TRAIL RUNNING SHOESMonti, and Testaccio. And avoid eating at restaurants near the touristy sights, they will always be overpriced and underwhelming.

At the far end of the African continent, Capetown is not the place easiest to reach. Often coupled with a stop in Johannesburg and Kruger Park (safari) this city is actually a destination in and of itself, so plan accordingly. It’s buzzing with trendy restaurants, sophisticated hotels both grande dame and boutique, and the surrounding nature is astonishing. The nearby wine country warrants exploration whether you're a wino or not, with gorgeous scenery and first-class resorts and lodges. If you’re into adventures, aside from hiking the cliffs near the southernmost edge of the world, you can cage dive with great white sharks near Seal Island or Gansbaai.

This Mexican city is a beautiful escape. Its well-preserved colonial town has earned the status of Unesco World Heritage Site. Baroque and Neo-Classical buildings in fifty shades of marigold and terracotta stand strong against the pops of color found in blue skies, fuchsia bouganvilla vines, green cacti, and geometric azulejo tiles.
