Travelling with UNESCO World Heritage


UNESCO at Auschwitz-Birkenau

A great place to find out about new destinations is the UNESCO World Heritage website. They offer a wide variety of choice, from small natural sites to whole cities.

Most of the sites are located in Europe, luckily for us. Unsurprisingly, Italy holds the largest number (44), closely followed by Spain (41) and Germany, ex aequo with France (33).

Notable sites are the historic centre of Florence, the Acropolis, the Red Square and Westminster Abbey, along with many other less known places.

What’s great about this is that when you don’t have a lot of time on your hands, you can stick to the list and see major sites (both architectural and natural) of the country you’re visiting, without having to read a whole guide book.
