4 Top places to visit in Europe


Even if you are building your dream home, you still deserve your dream holiday.  Here are 4 of our favorite places:


Whether driving along the wild Atlantic Road or enjoying the quite countryside of Cork, whether checking out the cute town of Adare or the bustling city of Dublin, there's so much to see in this little Island. For some great ideas on where to visit in Ireland.


Live like James Bond and check this city for the rich and famous. Million dollar yachts and cars to drool over are just part of the decor here. For some great ideas on what to do in a day in Monaco.


If you love small, picturesque towns, then you will enjoy visiting historic Colmar. The town also has some wonderful museums such as the the home of Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi (sculptor of the Statue of Liberty) and a Toy museum. For some great ideas on what to see and do in Colmar.


Pompeii is a vast archaeological site in southern Italy’s Campania region, near the coast of the Bay of Naples. Once a thriving and sophisticated Roman city, Pompeii was buried under meters of ash and pumice after the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. The preserved site features excavated ruins of streets and houses that visitors can freely explore. For a humorous take on seeing Pompeii with kids, go here.
