As fascinating as these more well-known cities are, however, there are some lesser-known treasures to be found in Italy. One such gemstone is Trieste. Situated in the north-eastern most corner of Italy, Trieste is a seaport city that sits on a narrow passage of the country that borders with Slovenia.

With a light dusting of winter snow on the ground, we drove west on Interstate route 70 from Indianapolis with a destination of Bowling Green, Indiana and a taste of medieval bed and breakfast.

The Exploratorium Museum of Science, Art and Human Perception (a $300m project) is triple the size of its former location at the Palace of Fine Arts and has more outdoor space, offering breathtaking views of S.F. Bay. Guaranteed to bring out the kid in you, the hands-on interactive Exploratorium is a FUN place to explore with your family and friends when visiting San Francisco – check out our favorite things below:

Highclere Castle is open to the public for only a few days each month.
Here are three options to see Downton Abbey: Group Tour, Private Tour or Self-Guided Tour (rent a car and drive yourself):
