  • How to See Dubrovnik in a Week

    Dubrovnik was the first stop in our 10-day Croatian vacay and it was everything I had hoped for and more! With an abundance of fresh seafood, local wine, quaint shops, welcoming locals and Game of Thrones filming locations, the Dalmatian Coast was more extraordinary than I had ever imagined.

Although the city is pretty small at only a little over 40,000 people, there is no shortage of things to see and do…

  • A Guide to the Best Sights in Rome

    Rome has been my favorite city in the world from the second I stepped off my Alitalia flight for my study abroad semester back in 2017. Since then, I have lived in Florence for 18 months and traveled to 21 European countries…and Rome still remains my favorite. Although when I first arrived I was technically there to “study,” I had only class twice a week. This gave me plenty of free time to explore the city! Over those four months, my friends and I compiled a long list of our favorite restaurants, bars, museums, attractions and adventures in Rome.
