<strong>Rome</strong>, with its more than 2000 years of history, has one of the biggest cultural heritages in the world. From the Roman Empire times through the Renaissance and Baroque to the actual age. Rome is a fascinating city.
<strong>Florence</strong> stands on the banks of the Arno River, in a hollow surrounded by the first Chianti hills to the south and the Fiesole hills to the north; these hills are green and undulating dotted with small towns and isolated home- stead's. As city of art and culture and originally a Roman center (Florentia), it began to acquire a certain importance under the Carolingians but its fortunes date from the time (1115) of its constitution as a Republic.
<p align="justify"><strong>Venice</strong> is one of Italy's top travel cities and a beautiful, romantic destination with many attractions. Its small, traffic-free streets along the winding canals make for great walking. You'll find many magnificent churches and palaces, lively squares, and interesting shops. Seafood is a big part of Venetian cuisine as are polenta and rice. Seppia, cuttlefish, is popular and risotto nero is a rice dish colored with its ink. Try zuppa di pesce fish soup here, too. Radicchio trevisano, red chicory, comes from nearby Treviso. Cicchetti, little appetizers, are found in the bars in Venice and are often eaten before lunch.</p>
<p align="justify">The <a title="Venice Paris Train" href="http://bethelcoachtours.com/venice-paris-train/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">over-night train ride</a> from <strong>Venice to Paris</strong> is also a adventure not to be missed. Traveling by train is the way many who travel Europe prefer to move about.</p>
<p align="justify">The French capital of <strong>Paris</strong> is one of the world’s truly great cities, a metropolis that lavishly satisfies the desires of tourists and business people alike and manages to retain a standard of living that makes becoming a Parisian so alluring. Despite its large size and population, almost everything worth seeing is contained within the Boulevard Périphérique (the ring road). The compact center is easily navigable on foot, with the efficient and comprehensive Métro system always on hand to ease tired limbs.</p>
<p align="justify">Vast, vibrant and truly multicultural,<strong> London</strong> is one of the world’s great cities. Located in the southeast of England, on the River Thames, it is the capital of the United Kingdom (UK) and has been the heart of its political, cultural and business life for centuries. As the population of the greater London area pushes inexorably towards the 10 million mark, the city continues to grow and thrive. London's very real multiculturalism is evident on every street (and many restaurant plates) and is a key reason why people love the city. Experience all the charms of the modern London, not least, the extraordinary breadth of London’s cultural life, with world-class art galleries and theaters, buzzing nightlife, film, music, culinary and fashion scenes - all while enjoying some of the best company on Earth and with a visit to this loving Bethel home.</p>
<p align="justify">Speaking of the <strong>London Bethel</strong>: As recently announced on JW.ORG a Big project is planned for the <a title="Britain Branch JW.org" href="http://www.jw.org/en/jehovahs-witnesses/offices/britain/#?insight[search_id]=55928d1d-ee6c-40e4-b275-abd5fc7fe681&insight[search_result_index]=49" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Britain Branch</a> in the future but in the meantime you can enjoy your Mill Hill Bethel tour of the new presses and administration facility at IBSA House. Doing so by means of video’s and a private tour. You will also have time to examine the 7-panel display on ”How the English Bible Came to Us”, a excellent informative and encouraging display.</p>
