Peru: Machu Picchu (historic site)
It is the site of the mythical Peru. I have had the chance to be in the Machu Picchu on the day of my birthday and this remains an unforgettable souvenir. This site is lost at the summit of a mountain in the middle of the jungle and I find that it is even more beautiful when there are clouds that flooding the ruins. It is difficult to imagine how the inhabitants of the time we were done to build this cited. Peru is a fantastic country for lovers of history. The Machu Picchu, classified site of the heritage of the humanity, is the main attraction of a trip but there is also all the sites of the valley of Cusco as Ollantaytambo, Sacsayhuaman, and also a few sites on along the Pacific as Pachacamac.

Ireland: The Giant’s Causeway (natural site)
Ireland is a beautiful island for its different landscapes but the Giants Causeway still remains for me the site to see. This site is a good example of the volcanic activity of the Earth and these basaltic organs that plunge into the sea are quite exceptional. It must also make the grand tour and stroll along the cliffs that dominate the site. Attention to the tide if you do not want to have the feet wet, which was my case. The site is classified with the World Heritage.
Italy: Assisi (historic site)
Assisi is a small holy city in the center of Italy which has a magnificent church painted, the Basilica of Saint Francis. This is probably one of the most beautiful examples of set of frescoes of the first Italian masters of the Renaissance with Cimabue, Lorenzetti and especially Giotto. It was just the impression that these frescoes come to be painted so that they date back to the 13th century. But for me, Assisi represents something more. In the night of 25 to 26 September 1997 a terrible earthquake shook the city and I spent precisely this night in a small hotel just in front of the basilica. The site is classified with the World Heritage.
