About Us

About Trip Historic

Trip Historic is a community-based historic destinations directory run by history enthusiasts who are passionate about the web. The site grew from a desire to make historic sites more accessible to those planning a trip. We have designed Trip Historic to give a smooth and simple user experience that will allow people to find historic sites near their chosen holiday destination, or to assist them with planning a bespoke tour based around the particular period of history they love.

The Big, The Small, and Everything In-Between

Everyone knows that if you go to Rome you can visit The Colosseum, it’s hard to miss. But how many know that Ostia Antica, just a short journey from Rome by train, contains the stunning ruins of the Eternal City’s ancient port? Or that Hadrian’s Villa is just outside town? Here at Trip Historic we’re trying to restore the balance by showing users the most well-known historic sites alongside the incredible historic locations that have found themselves falling by the wayside. We want to show our users everything we can and let them decide which sites are worth a visit and which can wait for another day.

Mapping History

By providing an easy to access map-based directory of historic sites and destinations, we hope to make it simple, easy and quick to locate historic sites around the world and plan a trip to see them. We aim to eliminate the need to jump from one website to another in order to discover historic sites and find out whether they are near to a particular town, city or holiday resort.

All the Key Information on a Single Website

Trip Historic aims to provide users with all the key information they need in one place. Therefore we not only provide a map-location and summary of each site, but also the relevant contact details, directions and entry information. Trip Historic gives people everything they need to plan their visits to historic sites under one roof, eliminating the need to visit twenty different websites in order to actively plan a trip.
