Some of the world’s most iconic sights

See some of the world’s most iconic sights for yourself. Stand before wonders, ancient and modern, to marvel at their beauty and at the vision and skill that went into their creation.

Follow the ancient footpaths to the lost city of Machu Picchu in Peru, or walk with the ghosts of emperors on the Great Wall of China. Marvel at the blushing pink sandstone tombs and temples of Petra, or catch your breath as you encounter the ancient Pyramids at Giza. Watch the sun sunrise over 900-year-old temples and hear monks chanting at Angkor Wat in Cambodia, or hold your breath as the sun sets behind the Taj Mahal. Head to Brazil and climb Corcovado to see the outstretched arms of Christ the Redeemer up close, and for the unforgettably breath-taking views of Rio. Alternatively, stay closer to home and journey to Italy and visit Rome's 2,000-year-old Colosseum or the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Whether your holiday takes you back in time, immersing yourself in the world of the ancients, or to see a more modern wonder, you're sure to find yourself awestruck by the sights themselves, by the engineering feats that went into their making, and by the stories of the priceless treasures that they sometimes once contained.
