An island escape meets ancient history at Verdura Resort in Sicily. Spend time relaxing at the resort, indulging in the spa, playing golf or one of the many other activities offered. When you’re ready to see more of the island, you can explore ancient ruins and take in gorgeous vistas.

Hotel de Russie, Rome

Rome has so much to do, see, and experience, and the Hotel de Russie is your perfect base camp. From the ancient Roman Forum to St. Peter’s Basilica, travelers of all ages will appreciate experiencing some of the world’s most famous historical sights in person. After a day of exploring, savor some peace and quiet in the hotel’s “Secret Garden” tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The Charles Hotel, Munich

Whether you’re visiting Munich for the history, museums, culture, or the beer (or all of the above!), stay at The Charles Hotel. Steps away from the famous museum quarter, it’s easy to experience a bit of history and culture before relaxing in a traditional beer garden with locals. While you’re there, don’t miss the spa — it has the longest luxury indoor pool in Munich!

Hotel Astoria, St. Petersburg

If you feel like you’re in a James Bond movie when you stay at the  Hotel Astoria in St. Petersburg, you’re not far off — GoldenEye featured the hotel! Beyond it’s silver screen fame, this hotel has a rich history. It was designed by renowned architect Fyodor Lidbal and built in 1912 and has been a landmark hotel ever since. It served as a hospital during World War II, and presently is an award-winning hotel.

The Balmoral, Edinburgh

Not only will you enjoy The Balmoral, but your children will too! Upon check-in little ones get a “passport” with instructions on how to collect stamps. Their passport journey takes them to the concierge, spa, restaurant, and other spots in the hotel where they get a stamp and a prize. They receive their final stamp at check-out plus get a precious backpack to hold all the prizes! And older children and teens will love staying where J.K. Rowling completed the final book in the Harry Potter series.

Brown’s Hotel, London

A classic London hotel (and by classic we mean the first hotel in London!) with a contemporary vibe, Brown’s Hotel is in the heart of Mayfair close to the best of London. And being around for 180+ years comes with some bragging rights: Winston Churchill enjoyed relaxing by the fire, Rudyard Kipling wrote The Jungle Book, and guests — you! — can visit the Crown Jewels during their weekly cleaning!

Hotel Amigo, Brussels

The epitome of Belgian luxury, Hotel Amigo brings the past and present together seamlessly. The guest rooms and suites in this 500 year old building (the lobby has cobblestones dating from 620!) were just redesigned and exude contemporary elegance and charm. The hotel is located around the corner from one of the most beautiful squares in the world, the Grand Place. And for antique lovers, it is walking distance from the antiques district of Le Sablon.

Hotel Savoy, Florence

It’s hard to beat Hotel Savoy’s location on the Piazza della Repubblica in Florence — it is walking distance to the Uffizi Gallery, the Duomo, and the Ponte Vecchio. And of course when you go to Italy, you go ready to indulge…you can taste the best of Tuscan cuisine and savor the finest local wines at the hotel’s restaurant Irene after a day of exploring.
