Pack your bags for an extraordinary adventure with National Geographic to the places that have captivated our imaginations for centuries. In this visually stunning volume, the world's leading authority on cultural travel and history showcases fifty bucket-list-ready destinations on every continent, from Easter Island's haunting stone moai to Kyoto's breathtaking temples. Vintage photographs from the National Geographic archives tell the backstory of the discovery and earliest visitors to places like Machu Picchu, Pompeii, Egypt's Great Pyramids, and more, while showstopping contemporary photographs bring them to life in exquisite detail. Full-spread features on lesser known and less visited sites, such as Pompeii's better-preserved sister city Herculaneum, offer readers extraordinary opportunities to deepen their travel experience and discover places where the past can truly come to life.

With practical information and travel tips to help readers get started planning their own legendary journey, this is the perfect gift to keep--or share.

What a beautiful book. It highlights incredible points of interest to see around the world, with a bit of history thrown in. The only problem is that I feel sad that the budget doesn't allow for the amount of travel that it would take to see all these places! Very enjoyable, though, if you enjoy armchair travel.
