While you’re in Europe, it’s a solid idea to have a game plan — especially if you’re planning on visiting the big sites you flew all that way to see. City Wonders is one of our favorite ways to see places like the Louvre, the Vatican, and other wonders of Europe — with expert guides and skip-the-line access.
If you’re in Rome, for instance, they offer well-organized day trips to places like Pompeii where you can walk the ancient streets with a guide who will likely be an archaeology professor at the local university. It’s an education and a once-in-a-lifetime experience all rolled into one.

They’ll take care of all transportation, hotels, excursions, and most meals. All you have to do is show up with an open mind and heart.
HOTEL OF THE WEEK: CONRAD DUBLIN
Sometimes a little luxury is in order. This week we’re going to Dublin for that luxury. Conrad is Hilton’s premiere brand of hotels that’ll knock your socks off with how well every detail of their experience is thought out.

It’s all about culture meets experience meets great booze.
