5 Places that will change your perspective on life

1. Monaco – An insight to the life of the rich and famous.

The proper name is The Principate of Monaco because it is actually an independent state located between France and the Mediterranean Sea and it is the second smallest country in the world, after the Vatican. Located on one of the most beautiful coasts in the world, the French Riviera, Monaco is called Europe’s Playground for the Richfor a reason. The principate is famous mainly for its touristic zone, Monte Carlo where nothing seems too expensive for its residents.

The casino of Monte Carlo is one of the most famous and beautifully built casinos in the world and you don’t see anything cheaper than a Ferrari in the car park in front of it. But Monte Carlo has something to offer for all budgets. Visit the Oceanography Institute, admire some of the most glamorous yachts you will ever see, have a relaxing day on the beach, go see the Palace of Monaco, the residence of Monaco’s royal family and visit the Exotic Garden of Monaco.

2. Sighisoara – The Birthplace of Dracula

Vlad Tepes, the Transylvanian rural of the 15th Century, is the real life person who inspired the Dracula myth. He was born in a famous region of Romania: Transylvania and more precisely in the city of Sighisoara. The city still has a strong medieval feel and every year at the end of July the city hosts the Sighisoara Medieval Arts and Crafts Festival.

If you are around, make sure you visit The Clock TowerThe History Museum where you can also see the torture room, The Monastery Church, climb the Covered Staircase which is a touristic attraction itself and which will take you to The Church on the Hill with many frescoes, and the School on the Hill and visit The Weapons Museum, where you can see a collection of medieval weapons. Eat in a unique place: at Casa Vlad Dracul (Dracula House) where Vlad the Impaler (Dracula) lived between  1431 and 1435.

If you want to eat breakfast out, I really recommend you go to Casa Cositorarului for its charm, good food and affordable prices and for dinner I had a really good experience at Hotel Bulevard, again for the good food and vintage style.

5. Florence – The gate to the Italian Renaissance

The famous Tuscan city is the Birthplace of  the Renaissance which means “rebirth” and which characterizes the period of time between the 14th and 17th centuries. The Renaissance can be seen as a cultural bridge between the Middle Ages and Modern Europe, as it is characterized by a flourish in all arts and sciences.

These aspects are noticeable in Florence’s most famous landmarks: Florence cathedral,  Uffizi Gallery, Palazzo Vecchio, Ponte Vecchio, Basilica of Santa Croce, Plazza della Signoria Piazza Michelangelo, Galleria dell’Accademia, Palazzo Pitti, Basilica of Santa Maria Novella and in the other amazing attractions it hosts.
