Rabat, Morocco's capital since 1912 and a city of more than 1.5 million residents, is not as compelling to travelers as other imperial cities, but it's a relaxing change of pace from much of Morocco—the touts are not as aggressive as in other places. We recommend seeing it as a day trip or a stopove...

Rotorua, New Zealand, 145 mi/235 km southeast of Auckland in the center of the North Island, sits on top of the most active geothermal region in the country, which explains why the town reeks of sulfur.

Rotterdam, a large and modern port city 45 mi/70 km southwest of Amsterdam, rose from the ashes of World War II. In 1940, the Nazis threatened to flatten the city unless it surrendered.
