1. Enjoying ‘La Dolce Vita’ in Italy. When it comes to romance, no place can come close to the allure of Italy. You’ve got the history of Rome, the art of Venice, the modern vibe of Milan, the dreamy Mediterranean coastline, the wines of Tuscany, the pizza of Pisa, and more.
Since the mid-summer weather can be scorching, try to plan your trip at the very beginning or end of summer, so you can stroll the parks and promenades without your third serving of gelato melting faster than you can enjoy it.
2. Road trip from Charleston to Savannah. Although the southern summer is very hot, there are plenty of sweet tea and lemonade to cool off the heat. Start your journey in the port city of Charleston, South Carolina,
where you can stroll through the picturesque cobblestone streets, ride a carriage, stroll the boardwalk, take pictures in front of Rainbow Street, and eat very, very well.
3. Colombia continues to climb the list of must-visit countries for curious travelers, and for good reason: Medellín offers immersion into art and culture, while Cartagena pairs history with seaside allure.
Summer in Medellín – often referred to as the “City of Eternal Spring” – means gin cocktails on outdoor patios, hiking on nearby mountains, pretty blooms from the surrounding rain forest, and a great calf workout (the town is built on hills).
