Czech Republic 🇨🇿 Do not miss visit museum/The Wallachian Village. My mother and her ancestors were living in traditional wooden houses like you can see in this museum. One traditional one still my family owns nearby to this museum. How it could be to try to live like my ancestors?
St Mark's Campanile (Italian: Campanile di San Marco; Venetian: Canpanièl de San Marco) is the bell tower of St Mark's Basilica in Venice, Italy, located in the Piazza San Marco. It is one of the most recognizable symbols of the city.
The tower is 98.6 metres (323 ft) tall, and stands alone in a corner of St Mark's Square, near the front of the basilica. It has a simple form, the bulk of which is a fluted brick square shaft, 12 metres (39 ft) wide on each side and 50 metres (160 ft) tall, above which is a loggia surrounding the belfry, housing five bells. The belfry is topped by a cube, alternate faces of which show the Lion of St. Mark and the female representation of Venice (la Giustizia: Justice). The tower is capped by a pyramidal spire, at the top of which sits a golden weathervane in the form of the archangel Gabriel. The campanile reached its present form in 1514. The current tower was reconstructed in its present form in 1912 after the collapse of 1902.

I literally could have heard a pin drop as I wandered through the Lérins Abbey, a 11th century Cistercianmonastery on one of the Lérins Islands on the French Riviera.
It's tucked away on the island of Saint-Honorat, which is home to a monastic community, who have made this place their sanctuary since the 5th century.
Today the monks cultivate vineyards and produce wine and liqueur for visitors to have a sip of during wine tasting sessions.
The island is only accessible by a ferry based service which is owned by the monks. It really is one of the best island-hopping experiences in Cannes.
