Especially with the Vatican, Rome is like it's own country so we have given it it's own page. We spent 4 days in Rome, barely enough. There is much to see from the Colosseum to Vatican city, We stayed at a nice little place just 5 minutes from the Colosseum and walked evreywhere although there is a subway entrance right at the Colosseum.


In 2008 we had the opportunity to drive accross portugal. We began on the Algarve coast than drove up to Sintra. While there we visited Lisbon, Mafra and Obidos as well as Sintra itself. From there we drove to Bucaco Palace with stops at the Monastarios of Batalha and Alcobaca. After spending the night in the Buccac0 Palace made stops in the Tomar; head of the Knights Templar in Portugal, Estremoz, Elvas, Evora and the hill top castle of Marvo.


In 2008 we drove through spain. Spain has fantastic castles and exquisite Cathedrals. We stayed in a number of Paradors, historic buildings turned into hotels by the government. The biggest challenge in Spain is deciding what to see as it would take months to see it all.


In 2010 we traveled through Italy beginning in Milan. We drove to Lake Como staying in Belagio. From there we went to Lake Garda, Verona, Ferrara, Ravenna, San Marino, Urbino, Spoleto, Assis, Orvieto, Sienna, Florence, and Pisa. Italy is rich in fantastic medival architecture, castles and elegant Duomos.


In 2010 we drove from Zurich to Montreau on Lake Geneva a very beautiful spot. We toured the very interesting Castle Chillon just out of town. We than drove back across Switzerland a very scenic drive on our way to Zermatt and to a view of the Matterhorn.


In Southern France we drove from Avignon the ancient city of Popes from when the pope resided in France. We than travelled to Nimes with it's well preserved roman ruins and finally to Carcassone the largest fortifird city in Europe.
