After the two years that have passed, we want a vacation illico. Not just any vacation: We’re ready to up the luxury factor and splurge when we return to overseas travel. Think super premium resorts, one-of-a-kind activities (Vespa rides in Italy, anyone?), and once-in-a-lifetime experiences we’ll remember long after the plane lands on our soil. Find inspiration in luxury travel moments on our to-do list.
If a country is the perfect panacea against the urge to travel, it is Italy. With its spectacular old towns, scenic coastline and carb-heavy cuisine, it’s the epitome of indulgence.
If you are going to visit an Italian city this year, make it Cefalù. Dubbed Italy’s prettiest seaside resort, the northern Sicilian town is known for its striking coastline and is best explored via Vespa. Drive along the coast at your own pace for a timeless Italian experience.
To the Australian eye, there is nothing more enchanting than snowfall. For a charming winter experience, French-speaking Quebec City offers snowy landscapes and cobbled streets (plus, it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site).
Home to exotic gardens, palaces and traditional souks (markets), the medieval city of Marrakech is a sensory delight. It’s even better seen from above, as the city is surrounded by North African countryside and desert. Treat yourself to a hot air balloon experience to truly appreciate the versatility and splendor of Morocco.
