Italy, France

Italy’s cities are like museums unto themselves.

Rome is full of remnants from the ancient empire, from the Colosseum to the Forum. The Leaning Tower of Pisa saw Galileo test his revolutionary scientific theories. Meanwhile, on the French Riviera, the culture of southern France is in the air—sense it in Nice, in Monaco and at a perfume factory in Eze.
