Ireland’s capital is a bubbling city known for its enviable social life and pub culture. It has a lot in store for every tourist. To truly enjoy and soak in the atmosphere, ditch trying to take in so many sites on your own and sign up for a free walking tour in the early hours of the morning.

If you’re in Italy, consider visiting Tuscany’s capital, Florence. Florence has sites and activities to keep you busy for a week but seeing as you’re pressed for time, don’t skip visiting the Renaissance masterpieces like the Fountain of Neptune or the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore.
Also, book tickets in advance to check out Michaelangelo’s David at the Accademia Gallery. The best way to experience the city is through a walking tour. For a quick meal, eat at Mercarto Centrale food market. Pick a souvenir at Mercato di San Lorenzo and take some nice snaps of the Ponte Vecchio bridge under the Secret Vasari Corridor.
