The capital city Amman’s cultural highlights include snaking your way around the winding paths of its old city and viewing the ancient ruins of a Roman amphitheater.

Croatia’s medieval city Dubrovnik is the reason so many people flock to this coastal country. Taking on a starring role as the ‘King’s Landing’ in hit series “Game of Thrones,” the old town is circled by ancient city walls which have defended it from attack for more than 900 years.
Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, is no longer a dreary post-Communist outpost but a colorful city full to the brim with nightlife options. It is also known for its medieval walled old city, which contains a vast royal complex and the iconic stone Maiden Tower.
Mauritius is a stunning an Indian Ocean island nation, known for its beaches, marine life and volcanic craters.
