Unwind this summer in Europe
The heart of the Roman Empire and home of the Renaissance, this European country’ cultural heritage is colossal. It is in Italy you can stand by the Michelangelo’s David and witness Sistine Chapel frescoes, Botticelli’s Birth of Venus and Primavera and da Vinci’s “The Last Supper”. In fact, Italy has more Unesco World Heritage cultural sites than any other country on Earth.
Stroll the footsteps of ancient Romans in Pompeii, explore Ravenna’s glittering Byzantine treasures or get inspired with history of Rome. Italy is an amalgam of attractions for any taste.
In Italy, art and life interact so effortlessly. One can enjoy a delicious dinner while surrounded by architecture, monuments and history itself.
From famous pastas and pizzas to more exquisite meat and seafood delicacies, every bite in Italian diners can feel like a revelation. While Italy’s culinary soul might prefer simplicity, it’s equally ingenious and sophisticated. Expect some of the world’s top fine-dining destinations, from San Pellegrino ‘World’s Best 50’ hot spots, to Michelin-starred must-visits. So whether you are going on a degustation journey in Modena, truffle hunting in Piedmont, or winetasting in the Valpolicella wine region, prepare to loosen your belt.
Italy’s gifts extend beyond its art galleries, fashion and fine dining. The country is one of nature’s masterpieces, with extraordinary natural diversity matched by few. From the north’s icy Alps and glacial lakes to the south’s fiery craters and turquoise grottoes, this is a place for doing as well as seeing.

Ancient sun-bleached ruins, the deep blue Aegean coastline and a culture that goes for thousands of years back in history – welcome to Greece.
Greece is a cradle of Western culture. Exploring ancient sights, a traveler will indulge in the world of endless discovery. Step into the ring where Olympians first competed. Climb steps hewn out of stone to Meteora’s monasteries, perched atop towering rocks. Contemplate the oracle’s insights from the magnificence of Delphi, take in a starlit drama at an ancient outdoor theatre and be stunned by massive marble sculptures dredged up from the Aegean.
Whether you’re a discoverer or beach lover, Greece has it all. Days melt from one to the next under wide open skies and a sea speckled with islands fringed with the white-sand, pine-tree shade beaches of your dreams. Wander along cobbled Byzantine footpaths, hike up volcanoes, watch for dolphins and sea turtles, and cycle through lush forests. Meander through olive groves, idyllic villages and petrified forests. Thrill seekers will discover world-class kitesurfing, wreck diving, and rock-climbing locations with dizzying views. Or simply hop on a boat and set sail into the glittering blue beyond.
A great culture comes with great cuisine. The core ingredients of Greek cooking are often found in the chef’s garden. Feta and olive oil are universal across the country, but unique regional produce and cooking styles make travelling here a culinary adventure. Taste herbs and mountain greens you’ve never heard of, mussels steamed in ouzo, bread baked with olives, and fish straight from the sea. A traditional-cooking renaissance has chefs lifting time-honored recipes to new gourmet heights.
Greece has endless cultural pursuits for every type of traveler. ASM will bring you to Greece on board of its exclusive Learjet 60XR and take care of every detail of your journey.
This landlocked country in the heart of the Balkans is still off the tourist trail. While the feisty Serbian spirit is embodied in Belgrade’s world-class nightlife, it offers a crucible of cultures and unsullied outdoors ripe for exploration.
The art nouveau town of Subotica revels in its Austro-Hungarian heritage, bohemian Niš echoes to the clip-clop of Roma horse carts, and minaret-studded Novi Pazar nudges the most sacred of Serbian Orthodox monasteries. Established wine regions and thermal spas cradled in rolling hills date back to Roman times. On the slopes of Kopaonik, Zlatibor and Stara Planina, ancient traditions coexist with après-ski bling, while super-scenic Tara and Đerdap National Parks brim with hiking, biking, rafting and kayaking opportunities.
Towering over the river on a 40m-high volcanic slab, this mighty citadel, considered Europe’s second-biggest fortress (and one of its best preserved), is aptly nicknamed ‘Gibraltar on the Danube’. Constructed using slave labour between 1692 and 1780, its dungeons have held notable prisoners in the past.
The remote Negotin region hides one of the country’s more dramatic natural phenomena. Three gigantic stone arches – known as Small Gate (Mala kapija), Big Gate (Velika kapija) and Dry Gate (Suva kapija) – were moulded by erosion in the Vratna River canyon; the last one is the most impressive but also the least accessible and recommended for more experienced hikers. Signposted trails (1km to Small and Big Gates, 5km to Dry Gate) lead uphill through the forest from Vratna Monastery.
The ‘White City’ gives a warm welcome to its guests and is one of Europe’s trendiest cities. Impressive in size coffee houses, a lively pedestrian boulevard skirted by historical buildings all the way to the ancient Belgrade Fortress. The riverside Savamala quarter has gone from ruin to resurrection, and is the city’s creative headquarters. Closer to the Belgrade’s city center there are museums guarding the cultural, religious and military heritage of the country.

Malta comprises of a splendid multiplicity in its small archipelago. You’ll find ancient temples, fossil-studded cliffs, hidden coves, thrilling scuba diving, history of remarkable intensity and plenty of 21st-century sophistication.
Malta and Gozo’s astounding prehistoric sites were erected by sophisticated temple builders, who also left miniature figurines and massive sculptures, which have survived millennia and are housed in Malta’s museums. Gigantic temples and towers from many different eras stand proud all across Malta, continuing their endless watch over the sea. Underground, the extraordinary site lies for the curious to witness: Hal Saflieni Hypogeum, a 5000-year-old necropolis carved from the living rock.
The capital, Valletta, built by the Knights of St John, is a harmonious grid of fortress-like hilltop town. Start your visit to Valletta with a masterpiece of Baroque art: St. John’s Co-Cathedral. Then, visit the majestic Grand Master’s Palace – the second major tourist attraction of Valletta. Republic and Merchant streets are the best places to find souvenir shops with magnets, postcards. The Casa Rocca Piccola is the only palace in Valletta that is still inhabited. Since the XVI century, 9 generations of Marquis de Piro have been living here. Even Malta’s fishing boats resonate with the past, their prows painted with eyes, just like the boats of their Phoenician predecessors.
Snorkellers and divers have much to explore underwater as well, a world of caves, crags and wrecks. Above the water, walking tracks negotiate view-filled pathways linking isolated coves and surprising historical structures. Even for the short-term visitor to Malta, a simple ferry journey across Grand Harbour in Valletta is a magical experience.
Malta is a home to a beguiling mix of cultures that has stewed together over generations. The archipelagos’ geographical location in the centre of the Mediterranean made it an alluring and much-fought-over prize, and the islands are full of majestic above- and below-ground defences.
In Malta you will span the millennia with an astonishing array of things to discover. You will indulge in the warm traditional Maltese hospitality that mixes Sicilian and Middle Eastern flavours.
