1 Keukenhof Garden, Lisse – Netherlands
The Keukenhof Gardens is the biggest garden on this planet and has been the world’s largest flower backyard for over fifty years.
Keukenhof is the world’s largest bulb-flower backyard and covers a massive 80 acres of land, home to roughly 7 million tulips and daffodils which might be in bloom during this special time. The concept was to present a flower exhibit where growers from all around the Netherlands and Europe could show off their hybrids – and assist the Dutch export business (the Netherlands is the world’s largest exporter of flowers). Netherlands Railways sells particular Keukenhof tickets that will take you from Leiden Central Station to Keukenhof Garden which takes round 20 minutes by way of bus. Do not miss the Tulpomania exhibition in the Juliana Pavilion.
Daffodils, crocus, and narcissi are on display when the gardens open in March, with tulips making their appearance a few weeks later. Hyacinths kick in around mid-April and stay in bloom for several weeks. The best time to come is in the last half of April, when you’re likely to catch everything blooming at once.
Keukenhof also hosts the Dutch National Bulb Market in October.

3 Cinque Terre – Italy
The Cinque Terre — as this stretch of five towns along the Italian Riviera is called — is located in northern Italy between Pisa and Genoa, and it’s the lowbrow, under-appreciated alternative to the French Riviera. There’s not a museum in sight, just sun, sea, sand (well, pebbles), wine, swimming, hiking, and pure, unadulterated Italy. Each town fills a ravine with a lazy hive of human activity — callused locals and sunburned visitors. While the Cinque Terre is now well discovered with more happier and relaxed travelers.
Aside from swimming and soaking in the atmosphere of unspoiled fishing villages, the most popular activity in the Cinque Terre is hiking from one village to the next along centuries-old goat paths. Trails plunge through vineyards and groves of olive and lemon trees and hug seaside cliffs, affording heart-stopping views of the coast and the romantic little villages looming ahead in the distance.

All visitors of Burano remain intrigued by the many colours and the coloured houses that are reflected into the green waters of channels, by the leaning bell tower, by the tranquility and the calmness with which the elderly ladies embroider original Burano lace by their tombolo (or lace pillow), while they are laughing and chatting in squares among them. It seems to be in paradise. Children who dart freely with their bicycles, balconies with multicolored flowers, fishermen who put up fresh fish from their traditional boats.
