SMALL JEWELS OF EUROPE

Hvar , Croatia

TABLE OF CONTENTS

SMALL GEMS YIELD BIG SURPRISES IN EUROPE Good things come in small packages, and Europe has innumerable small towns, hidden corners, and unexpected vistas that require a little footwork on your part to find. One way you can plan your trip is to find the source of things you love – for instance, the birthplace and story of a favorite Christmas carol, or a city that has a long history with gemstones. Follow lesser known Roman roads or search out the homes of your ancestors’ ancestors. The beauty of Europe’s small gems is multifaceted, as is appropriate for gems! Visual beauty is understood, intellectual wonder and awe are pretty much guaranteed; delicious times at the table and haunting memories of local music and singing are all part of your take-home, but the most priceless experiences you can have in Europe’s hidden gems? Meeting the people who live in them, using smart phones and Wi-Fi like the rest of us, yet carrying on traditions and safeguarding the wondrous cultural heritage of Europe.
