Sochi ©
Called the "Summer Capital of Russia," the busy resort town of Sochi is best known as the host of the 2014 Winter Olympics.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Sochi National Park and The Singing Fountains. The adventure continues: admire the sheer force of Agura Waterfalls, walk around Olimpiyskiy Park Adler, hit the slopes at Rosa Khutor Ski Resort, and don't miss a visit to Dagomys Tea Plantation.

For maps, traveler tips, photos, and tourist information, read our Sochi journey maker site.

Verona, Italy to Sochi is an approximately 11-hour combination of train and flight. You can also fly; or drive. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Verona to Sochi due to the time zone difference. While traveling from Verona, expect little chillier days and about the same nights in Sochi, ranging from highs of 33°C to lows of 23°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Sat) to allow time to drive to Gelendzhik.
