If you think about it, history is such a big part of all of us. If it wasn’t for the past, the future could never be, right? It’s fascinating to find out about different traditions in various parts of the world, as well as how civilizations evolved over time. Here are a few of our top-pick destinations for history lovers!

Machu Picchu

Located in southern Peru, this 15th-century Inca citadel lies on top of a mountain that’s only accessible by train or by hiking the Inca Trail. Rediscovered by Hiram Bingham in 1911, Machu Picchu was built in the classical Inca style, with polished dry-stone walls, and was abandoned when the Spanish invaded the region. The location was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983, and it was named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in 2007.

Giza Pyramids

Over 3,000 years old, and still unbeknown to us as to how they were built or how the Egyptians made them so precise, the Giza Pyramids are a marvel of human engineering. The three pyramids align with the stars and the solstices and contain tons of chambers that still haven’t been (and cannot be) opened. The largest one, called the Great Pyramid, was built by the Pharaoh Khufu, in the early 26th century BC, and over a period of about 27 years.

Do I need travel insurance?

For good or for bad, unexpected events are often part of trips, especially if flying far from home to another continent! Missed flights, lost baggage, medical expenses, and other unforeseen circumstances, can all combine to create stress and financial burdens while on your trip.

However, not all unforeseen events are negative! You might end up making some good friends along the way, which might turn your plans upside down. If you like to plan ahead though, you may find yourself having to choose between losing a lot of money from bookings or losing quality time and experiences with new people. A travel insurance policy can help reduce financial losses and give you the option to change your itinerary at any moment you wish!
