Machu Picchu in Aguas Calientes in Peru
The Machu Picchu (meaning “Old Mountain” in Quechua), declared Cultural Heritage of Humanity is the first tourist attraction of Peru. The ancient city created by the Incas in the fifteenth century, it is perched at 2430m above sea level on a rocky surface between the Machu Picchu and Huayna Picchu mountains. Forgotten for centuries, it was rediscovered by the American Hiram Bingham in 1911 (one of the luxury trains linking Cuzco-Aguas Calientes bears his name).
Machu Picchu can be reached by several hiking trails from one to several days, by bus from Agua Calientes, or by train from Cuzco (3 hours). We will make you discover Peru by the end of the year!

It would be a great #familyadventure!
Chichen Itza on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico
Chichen Itza is an ancient Mayan city located on the Yucatan Peninsula in southeastern Mexico. It was one of the main religious centers of Yucatán. Today it is one of the most visited archaeological sites in the region.
We really loved our stay in this part of Mexico, apart from this site there are many things to visit such as the city of Tulum with its ruins and turquoise beaches, Cancun of course, the ruta puuc, the Uxmal site that looks like Chichen Itza with less people, Playa del Carmen and many more! It will take us several weeks of travel down to discover more!
The Colosseum in Rome in Italy
The Colosseum, originally amphitheater Flavian ( Colosseo in Italian), is a uge amphitheater located in the center of the city of Rome. The largest ever built in the Roman Empire. It is one of the greatest works of Roman architecture, the symbol of Italy. Also worthy of a trip to Italy: the Trevi Fountain, the city of Cinque Terre, the Apulia region, the city of Florence, the Cathedral of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary of Milan, the tower of Pisa….
This country is really filled with beautiful places, already more than 15 years that I went there to visit Rome, Florence, Venice, and Milan. I love Italian cuisine so while waiting to go in the country of pasta and pizza, here are my good addresses of an Italian restaurant:
So which of these places did you visit?
