Sixt Europe Travel Guide – Dublin
We now head to the capital of Ireland, a nation that is synonymous with drinking, more specifically Guinness and whiskey. However, there is much more to this jolly city than drinking alone, so here are Sixt’s recommendations for your stay in Dublin, and these ones you will actually remember!
Having said that, a visit to Temple bar, an area notorious for its excessive drinking, is mandatory during your stay in Dublin. Even just for the atheistic appeal, it one of the only areas in the city that managed to preserve its medieval street pattern with narrow cobbles streets filled with art galleries, cafes and bars underpinned by eco-friendly schemes. The areas boasts the only art house cinema in Dublin as well as the Gallery of Photography and Projects Art Center. For a slightly more traditional cosmopolitan experience, head to Grafton street, which is the principle area of the south side of the city. There you will find a plethora of shops and restaurants as well as the Statue of Molly Malone, the protagonist in the song “In Dublin’s Fair City” (where the girls are all pretty) which some consider to be the unofficial anthem for Dublin.

Sixt Europe Travel Guide – Dubrovnik
This Croatian city located on the coast of the Adriatic Sea is one the most popular tourist destinations in the Mediterranean and is one of the smallest cities on our list with a population of just over 42,000. However, don’t let size fool you as there is a great deal to see and do in this Port city.
The attraction leading the way in this stunning the city is a walk around the city walls, which were initially put in place in the 13th century and where strengthened in the 15th to ward off the threat of the invading Turks. A leisurely walk around 2km parameters is a great way to turn back the clock and reflect, it is also the best way to see everything the city has to offer in terms of stunning sea views. I would advise that you walk either early in the morning or early evening as in the peak of the day time it can get unbearably busy. While you are around the area you will notice people jumping into the sea off the walls, or those less adrenaline conscious can slide in from the surrounding rocks, this is best way to finish off walking the walls with a refreshing dip into the Mediterranean Sea.
Now you can travel from South Florida to Atlanta for only one dollar!
