I’ve been on a travel kick lately, and it is a lot of fun to start thinking about what to do in various trips around the world. My latest exploration online has led me to Europe, and I thought I’d share with you some things I’ve come up with to do in Europe, and hopefully someone with more experience can share with me your insights and let me know what I should really do.
I should add that I haven’t factored in the budget yet (in fact, that’s not even been considered)…these are just fun, exciting places that I’d like to see!
Traveling to Italy and Rome seems like a lot of fun. I enjoy history, and I think I’d love to go see the Roman Forum, the Colosseum, and the various art galleries, fountains, and other historical sites across the city. I’d also love to go see the Vatican as well.
Beyond the sights, it doesn’t hurt that I love Italian food, and I’d enjoy pretty much every meal and snack in the city. I also think it would be fun to take some day trips to the country and see some other sights as well.
Paris has the same appeal to me as Rome, with lots of sights to see – the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, and more. There seems like so many interesting sights to see, I could spend days wandering around. Plus, I think the food would be so much fun to eat everyday as well.
A perk about Paris (and Italy to some extent), is that it seems easy to access the rest of Europe from. I’ve read that you can take trains everywhere across mainland Europe, which makes getting around easy and enjoyable. It would be nice to be in Paris because it seems like a hub to get just about anywhere else in Europe.
Finally, I think I’d really enjoy seeing Greece. Although the riots on the television lately have got me a little worried about going in the near-future, I think going to Greece in general could be very enjoyable and exciting. First, I think I’d really enjoy the history and the food. I think there are a lot of fun sights to see across mainland Greece.
But, if I went to Greece, I think I’d spend a lot of time in ferry ports because I’d want to hop to the various Greek isles and lay out on the beaches. I’ve seen so many movies showcasing the islands like Santorini, and it just looks so beautiful and tranquil. I’d love to leave the hustle and bustle of mainland Europe and enjoy some time in the sun on the beach. Plus, it looks so beautiful, with the white walls and blue roofs, I think it would be a very unique experience, but really relaxing at the same time.
What are your thoughts on going on a European vacation? Have you done it before? Any places that I must go see?
