Imagine traversing an ancient, storied waterway in a floating boutique hotel. Watching castles, villages, vineyards, farms and scenic landscapes drift by. Periodically, you pull into the very heart of a place to have a look around, whether on a guided walking tour, in a family-run cooking class or on a laid-back bike ride.

Listening to the music, laughter and conversation spilling out of the cafes of Montmartre. Smelling the fields of lavender, gently waving in the fields of Provence. Tasting a freshly-made croissant at a patisserie or a glass of wine at the vineyard. Seeing the beautiful colors of fruits, vegetables and flowers at a town square market. France is the place to indulge all of your senses. Marie Dubois is a travel director with Trafalgar, helping guests experience the very best of her native France, and we’re very glad to talk with her today to talk about her journeys.

The Beauty of Greece

The Beauty of Greece

2019-12-0128:09

From the time we’re children we learn the stories of the Greek gods and goddesses, we hear about Athens and Mykonos — the bleached white buildings against a sparkling blue sea. A trip to Greece means those things and so much more. Monasteries carved right out of the mountains. Kind, friendly people who love to share their culture with travelers. Food experiences from family-style seafood right on the beach to cosmopolitan restaurants in the city. Erin Nedelisky fell in love with Greece at a young age, and has made Athens her home since 1999. As a tour guide with Insight Vacations, she leads travelers on adventures from the islands to the mountains, introducing them to Greek culture all along the way.

For the traveler looking to experience world history and tradition first-hand or enjoy city nightlife, England and Scotland should be at the top of the list. During the day you can hear the sound of the wind blowing across the moor, smell the peat and the earth in a glass of whiskey, wander around medieval castles, or enjoy a traditional tea. At night, you can explore the trendy restaurants and bars of Edinburgh, one of the food capitals of Scotland, or dance all night in a London Club.

To the north, Venetian lagoons. To the south, Mt. Vesuvius rising above the turquoise bay of Naples. Medieval villas with their characteristic walled cities spread across Tuscany’s rolling hills. Deep in the heart of Italy, as you drink wine made from the locals, life moves at a different pace. One where every night, dinner is lovingly prepared with ingredients freshly picked that day. Each region of Italy has its unique charms, customs, crafts and cuisine, and Trafalgar tour director Gianmarco Nagni is passionate about immersion in the many local flavors. He was born and raised in Rome, and has come to know all of Italy – always finding fresh perspectives and spirited people sharing specialties, secrets and stories.

There are plenty of wonderful and famous places to visit in Italy — enough to fill a whole trip and then some. But what about the lesser-known Italy? The places that only a seasoned guide would know? Where the locals eat, and shop, and vacation. Sergio the gelato maker. The limoncello farm. Handmade textiles in Umbria. Salteno: the heel of the boot. We invited Insight vacations travel director and Italy expert Anna Targett to give us a glimpse at some of the lesser-known wonders of Italian travel.
Floating markets. Sacred islands. Houses rising from the water on stilts. One of the best things about cruising the Mekong is that local life happens right on the river—all around you. So whether you’re taking in the scene from the deck of your ship—or from the little wooden sampan or pedal-powered rickshaw that’s whisking you off to your day’s adventure—you feel fully immersed. Of course, in a region of jungle-shrouded temples, sparkling emerald rice paddies and layer upon layer of history, terra firma is just as absorbing, as Astrid Vedwijk can tell you. As an expert for Uniworld River Cruises, she’s been exploring Vietnam, Cambodia and the Mekong for years and she’s here to share her best stories and secrets.
