Inspire your wanderlust with some of the wonderful destinations below:

Sintra, Portugal

Just 16-miles from Lisbon lying in the wooded hills of the Sierra Mountain you will stumble upon fairy-tale landscape of mist-soaked forest and turreted palaces and castles. Once the home of the Portuguese royals today, this UNESCO World Heritage site, is beloved for palace visits, antique shopping and Mediterranean dining.

RockStar Recommends: Tivoli Palacio de Seteais

The stunning XVIII century palace was carefully restored with unique character, including frescoes, tapestries and antiques to make your historically-inspired trip complete. Tivoli Palacio de Seteais transports travelers to the elegance of the XVIII century.

Hvar, Croatia

The island of Hvar may be THE most beautiful place in all of Croatia. Throughout the ages, it was ruled by Romans, Greeks and Venetians, all of whom left their mark on the island’s architecture.

Hvar has the best of everything Croatia has to offer. You can participate in water sports in the crystal-clear sea water; explore the mountains; walk on the walls of the old town; enjoy quiet food and beverages at the Spanjola Fortress which is perched high on a hill overlooking the town. Or, you can party, party, party.

RockStar Recommends: Adriana Hvar Hotel

This hidden jewel is perched on Hvar’s main promenade, facing the old city center offering spectacular panoramic views of the town and the marina.

Seville, Spain

You can visit many cities in Spain - but until you visit the capital of the region of Andalucía you haven’t truly experienced the true historic flavor of Spain. Seville is the Spain you envision – with bright colors, Flamengo, bull fights and ancient architecture. When you’re here, time stops and you feel like you are in a time capsule that opens to the 19th century – with all the contemporary comforts, of course!

RockStar Recommends: Hotel Alfonso XIII

A palace - because nothing else will do for RockStar’s treasured royalty. Commissioned by the King of Spain, Hotel Alfonso XIII remains an iconic cultural landmark. This idyllic destination is centrally located in the historic quarter of Santa Cruz, next to the stunning Seville Cathedral.

Punta Ala, Tuscany

On the Tyrrhenian Sea, in the heart of Maremma in southwest Tuscany, there is a must-visit town called Punta Ala. Long knows as the “hidden” retreat, this delightful destination is of particular interest to wealthy Northerners (particularly Milanese).

Each visit to the Maremma is a new experience with new discoveries. There are long stretches of picturesque beaches of fine sand accompanied by lush pine forests, tiny coves with sweet sounding names and crystal-clear water, uncontaminated islands in an enchanted sea, villages and castles that are austere and festive at the same time.


Italian hospitality combines with crystal-clear waters, green meadows, white beaches and unparalleled views when you embark on this dream-like vacation.
