As the season begins to warm, thoughts turn to holidays, travel and the must-see places in Europe. While nearly everyone has a personal list of places they wish to see, some stand out as exceptional places of interest. Some are landmarks, others historically significant, and a few seem endangered by human progress and climate change. When travelling away from the UK this spring, summer, and fall, the following are some of the must-see places in Europe you should consider visiting.
Paris is a must-see place that in turn is full of must-see places in Europe. The Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, and the Arc de Triomphe are staples of French tourism. They will fill any itinerary with rewarding hours. There is far more to see though. Art and culture still exist on the streets and in cafes and there is a vibrant nightlife. Day or night, in reverent cathedrals or street scenes, one never forgets it is Paris. UK travellers will save substantial amounts on exchange fees by converting to Euros before departure or carrying a currency card in Euros.
This is a city of magnificent art, architecture and deep historical significance, and once the centre of the western world. This ancient and ultra-modern city captures the eyes and the imagination. Modern fashion, architecture and technology stand amidst ruins of the Coliseum, and the traces of the early Christian Church. With art and architecture from many ages, Rome should be on any list of must-see places in Europe.
Waging an eternal battle with rising sea levels, Venice is still a gem in the glorious cities of Europe. The mix of quiet canals and stone structures still fascinates visitors. The mix of old and new will capture the romantic in everyone. travellers to Italy will encounter high exchange fees everywhere. UK travellers will save substantial amounts by purchasing Euros before departure.
Many destinations in Spain are quite beautiful, rich in art, and literary significance. Barcelona has one other intriguing feature and is among the must-see places in Europe. The mix of architecture is remarkable, from ancient times to Moorish influences, to modern times with Gaudi. Exchange rates and fees in Barcelona are not extremely high, and there are many outlets. One can avoid inconvenient stops by buying a currency card or converting to Euros before arriving in Spain.
Castle district, ancient castles and natural health spas make a quite unusual mix. Budapest is a rich cultural centre of an area not well known in much of Europe. This gem of a city will keep visitors fascinated with the preserved structures that have changed little in more than 700 years. Hungary uses its own currency and conversion of Pound Sterling to Forint (Ft, HUF) is widely available. One can control costs more easily by exchanging Pounds or buying a currency card in advance of travel.
The heart of this sprawling metropolis is in Europe, and it has become one of the top tourist destinations in Europe. It, like Paris, Rome, and Athens, has ancient roots and rich historical references. Visit the bazaars and historic Mosques; one can relish the legends of the Bosporus the historic crossroads of Europe and Asia. Businesses accept the Euro in Istanbul along with the Turkish Lira.
