Recently I conducted a twitter poll to see what area of the world my followers enjoyed reading about. In the poll I had given the choices of Europe, the Americas, Asia and Australia. Needless to say my follower still chose Europe!
Germany: Germany has long been the centre attraction for Europe. When traveling to Europe from the United States or Canada you will want to fly the prestigious German airline Lufthansa. I have flown Lufthansa a number of times and have never been disappointed. The majority of times I have traveled to Germany Inhave flown into Frankfurt and that’s fine but it’s not necessary. Germany has a beautiful landscape and is very populated so you can basically fly into Berlin, Munich, Nuremberg, Hannover or anywhere really. With so much to do in Germany you can go at any season and be delighted. Oktoberfest is one time I want to go but haven’t been able to yet so that’s a bucket list for me. A number of things can be done in Germany from traveling the Rien River in a bot Cruse to visiting castles from the 1800’s. Germany is rich in historic sights and is a must visit for any history buff.
France: When people mention France some might think cheese, wine and love. The countryside is really beautiful and France has plenty to offer other than Paris. When traveling to France, again, you might want to take the country airline, Air France. I have flown to Paris from Toronto using this airline and the one recommendation I can give is to take the late flight. When we traveled to Paris we flew out at dinner time and arrived in paris in the morning. So unless you can sleep in a plane I don’t recommend this because I was so burnt that it took 2-3 day s to adjust. Nonetheless what is there to do? Go and take the wine tours. I have been on tours for Dom Parignon and Moet which were amazing. I would also say go and see Versailles because that is a very beautiful place. If you love river cruising you can even go from France across Europe so that might be an amazing way to see the country. There is so much to do in France and you will enjoy every minute of it.
Italy: What country in Europe has so much culture and great food? I would have to say Italy. If you want a romantic getaway with a reasonable budget this will be the place. You can visit so many historic places sites that you will jot be disappointed. Your destinations in Italy can include Rome, Pisa, Florence and Venice. All of these cities have amazing attractions from the Leaning Tower of Pisa to the Colosseum in Rome. Italy sent a very big country geographically so you will have plenty of time to visit everything in a couple of weeks. I recommend taking in the Italian culture we have all come to love.
Sweden: How about traveling to Northern Europe? You will find Sweden is a destination you want to see. If you have never been to Sweden you will definitely want to check out Stockholm. When we traveled to Stockholm we visited a number of attractions in a day. It really all depends on how much you want to take in. The place is beautiful and you will see so much history. I learned a lot when going there and was really surprised. One thing you should keep in mind about Sweden though is that they do not use the Euro and have there own currency, The Kroner.
Switzerland: The landscape of Switzerland is really something to see. I feel you plan on mountain climbing or skiing, you may not fondness anything comparable ever. The Swiss Alps are breathtaking and a forsure bucket list destination for anyone. You will find castles and beautiful ski resorts throughout this Central European country but inparticular in Bern, you will experience the culture unlike anywhere else.
This list of Top 5 European Vacations is just the start. Traveling throughout Europe is fun and can be done easily by train if that’s something you think you would enjoy.
