Amalfi Coast, Italy

The allure of the Amalfi Coast’s natural beauty has been drawing people to the region long before it had a name.

Its dramatic charm and idyllic weather enticed ancient Roman nobles to build their villas there, a real estate trend that, overtime, never faded. Today the mountains and sea cliffs are dotted with pastel confections of holiday homes and sumptuous villas, which have elevated the coastline to one of the most fabulous and unique destinations in the world.

Its fragile cultural landscape—churches, gardens, vineyards and towns—are divided into thirteen different municipalities, and were listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites in 1997. Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello are the area’s top destinations, attracting thousands of jetsetters each year.

One of the most dramatic and beautiful parts of New Zealand; the power of Fiordland’s scenery never fails to enthrall travelers. Fiordland National Park has spectacular ice-carved fiords, lakes and valleys, rugged granite tops and pristine mountain to sea vistas.

Rising above stunning Milford Sound is Mitre Peak, rising 1692 m above sea level and adding awe to any photo, no matter what weather. The Milford Road journey will get you there. Black coral is an underwater beauty and in Fiordland can be seen at shallower depths than elsewhere due to the freshwater layer.

Fiordland National Park features three world class Great Walks tracks with stunning scenery: Kepler Track, Milford Track and Routeburn Track.
