Sightseeing involves a particular kind of itinerary for many travelers — one that’s thoroughly researched, meticulously planned, and strategically mapped in order to ensure that all time between a hastily scarfed-down breakfast and a final lobby entrance is spent exploring efficiently.

Each day’s to-do list is packed with enough must-see monuments and unique museums to leave a wanderer exhausted, dreaming of just a deep sleep.

Consider a different point of view. Sightseeing can begin from the very first moment when you open your eyes in the morning, as you wake up in a suite that has inspired art on the walls and a gorgeous view from the balcony.
