Florence, capital of Italy’s Tuscany region, is home to many masterpieces of Renaissance art and architecture. One of its most iconic sights is the Duomo, a cathedral with a terracotta-tiled dome engineered by Brunelleschi and a bell tower by Giotto. The Galleria dell’Accademia displays Michelangelo’s “David” sculpture. The Uffizi Gallery exhibits Botticelli’s “The Birth of Venus” and da Vinci’s “Annunciation.”
The Swiss city of Geneva lies at the southern tip of expansive Lac Léman (Lake Geneva). Surrounded by the Alps and Jura mountains, the city has views of dramatic Mont Blanc. Headquarters of Europe’s United Nations and the Red Cross, it’s a global hub for diplomacy and banking. French influence is widespread, from the language to gastronomy and bohemian districts like Carouge.
Nice, port and capital of the Alpes-Maritimes department on the French Riviera, sits on the pebbly shores of the Baie des Anges. Founded by the Greeks and later a retreat for 19th-century European elite, the city has also long attracted artists. Former resident Henri Matisse is honored with a career-spanning collection of paintings at Musée Matisse. Musée Marc Chagall features some of its namesake’s major religious works.

Ibiza is one of the Balearic islands, an archipelago of Spain in the Mediterranean Sea. It is well known for the lively nightlife in Ibiza Town and Sant Antoni, where major European nightclubs have summer outposts. And it is also home to quiet villages, yoga retreats and beaches, from Platja d’en Bossa, lined with hotels, bars and shops, to quieter sandy coves backed by pine-clad hills found all around the coast.
Palma is Mallorca’s vibrant capital, stylish and intimate, yet bursting with life. Half of the island’s population lives in this city, lively all year round with trendy restaurants, cafes, shops and nightlife as well as a thriving art scene. It’s often compared to Barcelona and, being within a 15-minute taxi ride from the airport, it makes for the perfect city break.
