As irresistible as chocolates are to kids, and as addictive as online games are to teenagers, Europe is the craze of travellers. Europe’s beguiling beaches, arresting architecture, and pulsating parties will leave you craving for more of the continent’s attractions. So before the travel itch gets too unbearable, why not go over our list of the best European places to visit? Here they are …
London. This British city’s not one of the world’s greatest for nothing.
- Highlights: The stunning London Eye, the iconic Tower Bridge, the towering Big Ben of the Palace of Westminster, and the home of the Queen, Buckingham Palace, are more than enough reasons to jet off to this British city. Images of Harry Potter are evoked by attractions such as King’s Cross, Stonehenge, and Warwick Castle. Live music in posh concert venues and small pubs is also a must.
Paris. The “City of Light” glows with its romantic atmosphere and the grandness and magic of its attractions.
- Highlights: Paris’ celebrated landmark, Eiffel Tower, stands in all majesty, overlooking the entire city. This celebrated icon has probably starred in more films than any D-list actor or actress. The Louvre inundates tourists with culture, history, and art, highlighted by the famous Mona Lisa. Popular activities include fashion-ogling at Spring Fashion Week and themed guided walking tours: Classic Walk, Da Vinci Code, World War II, and the French Revolution tours.
Venice. Another European charmer, this “sanctuary on a lagoon” combines a romantic ambience with a distinct medieval elegance.
Greece. Charmed by the gods, this European beauty offers remarkable ancient ruins and glistening beach resorts.
Rome. This “Eternal City” exudes perpetual beauty in its remarkable Roman Empire structures and rich Roman Catholic churches.
Switzerland. Europe’s winter wonderland, Switzerland is a haven of thrilling adventures and soothing public wellness baths.
Amsterdam. Netherlands’ capital may be old-fashioned, but its hip and laidback culture provides an extraordinary kind of fun.
