NEW Shows Travel Porta Nigra, Germany: the best preserved gate from the ancient world Friday, May 13th How about exploring this UNESCO World Heritage Site with Juliane in Trier, Germany? When the Romans laid the foundation stone for the Porta Nigra in AD 170, they would never have imagined how successful it would be. After all, the city gate was just one of four in Trier at the time. Today, some 1850 years later, the ‘Black Gate’ is the best preserved Roman city gate north of the Alps, and the number one attraction when it comes to Roman structures in modern-day Germany. So come see it!
Spinning Kafka’s Head, Suicide in Progress, Church in a Wall Friday, May 13thOne of the unique things about Prague is that the art around the city is quite unusual and unique and this piece on Franz Kafka is no different.

Twice an hour the head of Franz stops for 15 minutes at the perfect spot before it starts going again for another 15 minutes. You won't have to wait long to see this piece of art in action! Come explore it and more!

Discover the artist who made Rome beautiful! When we walk around Rome, there is one artist who continuously reminds us of his presence. His name is Gian Lorenzo Bernini.

There is so much that he left for us to enjoy!
Bernini is everywhere you turn in Rome. And no two of his artworks are the same.
