GET Together and GET Going! @fontSize>
There’s something special about a girls’ trip. It’s the perfect opportunity to relax, reconnect, and revel in new experiences together. With that in mind, here are our best girlfriend getaways for 2018:
You Want to: Go Wine Tasting
We Suggest: Burgundy & Provence
The south of France beckons. Answer the call and enjoy some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world. Picture purple fields of lavender and golden sunsets over vineyards that stretch as far as the eye can see. While you’re there, enjoy local wines from the regions that many consider the best in the world: Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from Burgundy, Rosé from Provence, and Syrah from the Rhône Valley.
We Also Suggest: Best of Italy
Perhaps the only country that rivals France for the title of Best Old World Wines, Italy is home to the renowned regions of Veneto (known for Prosecco), Tuscany (Chianti), Piedmont (Barolo), Lombardy (Franciacorta), and Sicily (Nero d’Avola). Taste all the best vino as you enjoy all the best of Italy, with visits to Rome, Florence, Venice, Milan, and Lake Maggiore.
You Want To: Soak in Some Sun
We Suggest: Mediterranean Fables
White sand beaches, aquamarine water, hillside villas overlooking the sea, and a Mediterranean breeze blowing through your hair, the sun-kissed Greek isles are a magical girls’ getaway destination. Explore the ancient treasures of Athens, then go island-hopping from Mykonos to Santorini to Crete and beyond.
You Want to: Explore Ancient Ruins & Jungles
We Suggest: Natural Wonders of Costa Rica
Ready for an adventure with your girls? Costa Rica is an explorer’s dream. With luscious tropical rainforests, wildlife habitats, cloud forests, crater lakes, and palm tree-lined beaches, you can go ziplining, traverse hanging bridges, hike volcanoes, and see more plant and animal species than you ever thought possible!
We Also Suggest: Peru Explorer
If seeing Machu Picchu is on your travel bucket list, then this is the girls’ trip for you. Starting your journey in Lima, Peru’s capital city gives you a firsthand understanding of contemporary Peruvian culture that will enrich your time in Cusco, once the capital of the Inca Empire. You’ll spend time in the Sacred Valley in the Andes before taking an excursion to the mystical “lost city” of Machu Picchu.
You Want to: Take a River Cruise
We Suggest: Splendors of Egypt & the Nile
What better way to experience Egypt than by cruising the Nile River? This great waterway was the lifeblood of an ancient civilization, and during your luxurious journey, you’ll see ancient Egypt brought to life. You’ll visit temples, Nubian villages, statues of pharaohs, and major Egyptian landmarks, including the Valley of the Kings, the Great Sphinx, and the Pyramids of Giza.
You Want to: Step Back in Time
We Suggest: Easy Pace Budapest, Vienna & Prague
Prepare for an immersion into food, art, music, and culture! These three capitals, lush with magnificent cathedrals, imperial palaces, and majestic castles stand at the geographical heart of mainland Europe, their history and culture intertwined by the powerful Habsburg dynasty. According to UNESCO, drinking espresso while in Vienna is an official cultural pastime! That means you’ll absolutely want to carve out time to rub elbows with the locals over a cup of hot coffee.
