Been there to the Meteora Monasteries in 2007 and it was quite the experience! The views are splendid!
Meteora Monastery, Greece The sandstone peaks were first inhabited by Byzantine hermits in the 11th century, who clambered up the rocks to be alone with God. The present monasteries were built in the 14th and 15th centuries during a time of instability and revival of the hermit ideal; the first was Great Meteoron (c.1340) and there were 24 monasteries by 1500. They flourished until the 17th century but only six survive today; four of these still host monastic communities.

Pompeii, Italy - Also on my bucket list, I want to see the city and the plaster casts!
the ruins of Pompeii, Naples, Italy
The ancient ruins of Pompeii in Italy where Mt. Vesuvius erupted and destroyed the city back in 79 A.D. I first became fascinated by this place after watching Pink Floyd's "live at Pompeii" video performance. I am amazed by the fact that to this day you can see some molds of it's citizens at their time of death. #Travel #Rome #Italy #Pompeii
Bucket list!!! Explore the ruins of Pompeii, Italy and Mt. Vesuvius.
Pompeii, Italy. The excavated ruins are unbelievable. The stone body "casts" of those who died will break your heart and fascinate you all at the same time. It's a great place to visit.
POMPEII, ITALY ~ The city of Pompeii is a partially buried Roman town-city near modern Naples in the Italian region of Campania, in the territory of the comune of Pompei. Along with Herculaneum, Pompeii was destroyed and completely buried during a long catastrophic eruption of the volcano Mount Vesuvius spanning two days in the year AD 79. The eruption buried Pompeii under 4 to 6 m (13 to 20 ft) of ash and pumice, and it was lost for nearly 1700 years before its accidental rediscovery in 1749...

Piazza Navona -- With its ornate fountains, baroque palazzi and pavement cafés, Piazza Navona is central Rome’s showcase square. Today interest centres on Bernini’s extravagant Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi (Fountain of the Four Rivers). It depicts the Rivers Nile, Ganges, Danube and Plata, representing the then-known four continents of the world. The 19th-century Fontana del Nettuno at the northern end of the piazza depicts Neptune fighting with a sea monster, surrounded by sea nymphs.

Neuschwanstein Castle - Bavaria, Germany! Went here in July...By far the most beautiful place I have ever been! It was AMAZINGGGg!
Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany. The castle is one of the most visited places in Europe. The castle was built by King Ludwig II. He was a shy king. He built this castle to withdraw from public life. Now the palace is visited by more than one million people every year. It has appeared in numerous movies and it was the inspiration for the Sleeping Beauty Castle of Disneyland. Amazing! #Travel #PackYourBags #AmazingPlaces #Germany #Castle #NeuschwansteinCastle
Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany- the inspiration for Walt Disney's castle at Disneyland. Well worth the hike and scary bridge to get an overhead look of it
