London at night

Are you making plans to take that much needed break and with no clue about the best place to go? How about taking time out to relish the beauty and sights of the Old Continent? Here are some suggestions for that perfect European getaway.

Barcelona, Spain

This city is nicely located in the proximity of the sea and promises tourists a memorable experience. You are sure to be impressed by the Sagrada Familia and the style of architecture on display. Barcelona has something for just about all classes of people — lovers, families, and other fun seekers. There are several quaint churches and cathedrals as well as beachside nightclubs. You will sure love the Catalan cooking, too. Attractions in the Catalonia city also include Gaudi’s Parc Guell (Guell Park), Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boquera, Barri Gotic, Montjuic Castle, and the tree-lined Las Ramblas.

London, England

There is so much to do and enjoy in the English capital for an average tourists. Points of interest that you may want to pay a visit to include the world renowned British Museum, Tower of London, Buckingham Palace and Tate Modern. If you have the time, you may also want to see a play at the Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre or a musical in Leicester Square. And if you happen to be a fan of fish ‘n’ chips, you can eat as much as you want, or can afford, in London. But, the major challenge most visitors will have to contend with is high prices.

Paris, France

Tours to Europe without a stop at Paris may not be considered a complete one. Several millions of people troop to the French capital city every year to enjoy its scenic ambience. There is a lot to see from the Eiffel Tower to the Musee du Louvre. There is also the historic Notre-Dame Cathedral, whose building work started in 1163. Paris is filled with several nice museums, churches, monuments, and gardens worth seeing. Without an itinerary in place, you may miss out on many wonderful attractions the city has to offer.

Athens, Greece

Fancy a visit to the land of great philosophers such as Socrates, Plato and Aristotle? Athens offers you that opportunity. The Greek capital is well known as the birthplace of democracy and cradle of Western civilization. The modern Athens, a mixture of both the old and the new, is very popular for its ancient ruins and monuments, including the Ancient Agora, the Acropolis, and the Parthenon, amongst others. You are sure to enjoy your visit to this ancient city and amazing holiday location.

Rome, Italy

Often referred to as the Eternal City, Rome boasts of many great places worth seeing, such that a few days may not be sufficient for tourists to see them all. A visit here will afford you to have a feel of the ancient city with attractions such as the Colosseum and Roman Forum. Aside the Vatican City, St. Peter’s Basilica and Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain is one of the must-sees in Rome for travellers, some of whom often toss in a coin into the fountain to test a legend.

These are just few of the many cities that can guarantee the perfect European getaway.
