One continent that features highly on almost everyone’s list is Europe. The reason for that is that there are so many countries to visit and so much of the world’s history set across these 50 countries. Here we are going to take a look at some the most popular and easy to navigate places to visit in Europe, but that doesn’t mean you should discount the likes of Stockholm in Sweden and Prague in the Czech Republic. So here are some suggestions for your trip to Europe.
First of all, we are going to start with one of the places in Europe with the richest of histories and one of the heaviest influences on the rest of the world, Italy. And when you discuss Italy, it is impossible to not start with the food. You have, no doubt, had pizza and pasta by now in your life, but you haven’t had it the way Italians do it at home. The pride and passion they put into their food is second to none, so make sure you are ready to get stuck into the local cuisine as soon as you arrive
One of the big questions when visiting Italy is where to go? Well, that choice really depends on what you are looking for. Two of the most popular tourist attractions in Europe, not just Italy, are Rome and Venice. Both are steeped in history and cultural significance, with the former being 100 small islands connected by canals and bridges. Rome is the capital of Italy and prides itself on taking you on a journey through the Roman era right up to the modern day with the Colosseum and Forum just two of the monuments still standing.
Meanwhile, for those of you looking for a taste of the ocean life then you might want to hire a driver from WhereToRome and get yourself cruising along the Amalfi coast.
Much like Italy, Spain has a lot to offer tourists outside of its main attractions. There is a gluttony of cities and towns to visit that you could just keep coming back for more. This time we are going to focus on the mainland, but don’t forget the Canary Islands off the coast of Africa. The likes of Tenerife, Gran Canaria, and Lanzarote have lots to offer. The same applies to a lot of mainland Spain, from the countries capital Madrid to the capital of one its regions, Sevilla in Andalucia.
But for now, we are going to look at Barcelona. There is a reason that this part of Catalunya is so popular all year-round, and it isn’t just the weather. The merger of city life with the beach is one that tourists and locals love equally. There are few places in the world where you can be in the hub of the action of a major city only to be feeling the sand in your toes within a few minutes. Barcelona is famous for many things from its football team to La Rambla, but one major recommendation is to get up into the Gaudi Park. Not only will you see some of the wonderful works of this great Spanish artist, but you will also be offered views of Barcelona as a whole that just can’t be beaten.
