Whether you’re seeking a cultural exploration or a luxurious escape, these hidden gems will satisfy your wanderlust and create lifelong memories.

Italy: Amalfi Coast

Italy beckons travellers from around the world to discover its enchanting locations. Among its many treasures, the Amalfi Coast stands as a jewel in southern Italy. This picturesque coastline stretches along the Sorrentine Peninsula, boasting dramatic cliffs, vibrant villages, and crystal-clear azure waters. There you can embark on a boat tour to the island of Capri to soak up the sun at Marina Piccola, or venture on the Sentiero Degli Dei trail for panoramic views of the coastline. 

You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to where to stay  – from the quaint town of Positano, where at the Le Sirenuse hotel you can dine at its Michelin star restaurant, to the Palazzo Avino in Ravello, a beautifully restored 12th-century palace with its own luxury spa. And why not take a piece of the Amalfi Coast home with you, where it’s renowned for its handcrafted ceramics and local liquors. 

Travel tip: If you’re looking to experience lesser crowds, we recommend planning your trip to the Amalfi Coast during the springtime, between March and May.  It’s also the perfect time to see its many wildflowers bloom! 


If you take a trip to Switzerland, you will discover a plethora of awe-striking landscapes. Within its borders lie cities that present a delightful blend of natural beauty, historical charm, and world-class experiences. Amongst its adventures includes a train ride to the “top of Europe” where you can witness the Swiss Alps in all its glory, as well as visits to  Zurich, Lucerne and Interlaken, where they await with their unique offerings. 

Complete your Swiss journey with a stay in some of the country’s finest hotels: The Beau Rivage Palace Lausanne offers a Belle Epoque ambience and stunning views of Lake Geneva and Baur Au Lac in Zurich is renowned for its historic elegance, exceptional service, and a prime location near Lake Zurich. For those seeking a luxurious mountain retreat, the Kulm Hotel in St. Moritz provides world-class amenities, breathtaking mountain views, and access to a multitude of outdoor activities. 

Travel tip: The best time to travel to Switzerland is between June and August as the temperatures will allow for swimming in their many pristine lakes. 

Czech Republic: Prague

Step into a real-life fairytale in Prague, the capital city of the Czech Republic, where old-world charm meets alluring architecture. At the heart of the city is Prague Castle, the largest ancient castle complex in the world. Rich in culture, the city has many concert halls and jazz clubs nestled along its cobbled streets, as well as many restaurants where you can indulge in delicious Czech cuisine. 

If you’re inspired to visit Prague, consider staying at the Emblem Hotel in the Old Town, which offers a rooftop terrace and personalised service, or the Aria Hotel, close to the castle and vibrant nightlife. From there you can take a stroll through its lively markets and take a piece of its culture back home with you, including handcrafted marionette dolls stemming from its long puppetry tradition. 

Travel tip: We recommend packing comfortable shoes as Prague is best explored on foot and through its efficient public transportation network. 


Discover the hidden gem of Georgia, nestled between the Caucasus Mountains and the Black Sea. This transcontinental destination offers a mix of history, culture, idyllic landscapes, and warm hospitality. Located on the banks of the Kura River is the vibrant city of Tbilisi, Georgia’s capital. Along its coasts is the city of Batumi, you can unwind on beautiful beaches, as well as experience the dazzling evening light show by the Ferris wheel. Georgia also has a long and storied tradition of winemaking, creating the perfect opportunity to taste and take home a bottle or two! 

Complete your trip with a stay at one of its hotels – we recommend the Sheraton Grand Tbilisi Metechi Palace, situated in a prime location overlooking the Mtkvari River with easy access to Tbillsi’s attractions, or the Hilton Batumi, a truly luxurious stay with stunning views of the Black Sea.
