Summer is just around the corner, and with that comes summer vacations! You have saved up the cash and gotten the week off of work; the only question now is where do you want to go? Give Europe a shot! One of the most popular destinations on the planet, and home to some of the world’s greatest countries, Europe is a prime spot for a vacation in 2017. There are so many destinations to choose from, so grab your passport and Euro’s (or pounds sterling) and come with us as Holidays Lounge visits the top vacation spots in Europe!
Holidays Lounge says bonjour and welcomes you to the City of Light! Home to one of the most awe-inspiring structures in the world, the Eiffel Tower, Paris has had an incredibly rich history dating back to the 3rd century BC. You will naturally want to check out the Eiffel Tower, but some other things to keep your eye on are the Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame, the Louvre (housing the Mona Lisa) and the palace of Versailles. Enjoy sightseeing around Avenue des Champs-Élysées, and if you are daring enough, venture into the catacombs, which holds the remains of over six million people from the 1700’s. Make a great itinerary, take in all of the sights, and enjoy perhaps the most wonderful city on Earth. Viva la France!
London’s calling for you to visit, as Holidays Lounge takes a look at the capital city of England. Home of football, fashion, as well as fish and chips, London is one of the most visited destinations in the world, and for good reason. Take the tube all around this great city, as you visit Buckingham Palace, Parliament, Westminster Abbey, the London Tower Bridge, and Big Ben! Make sure to check out Piccadilly Circus and thespian theater in the West End. Might be smart to bring a raincoat as well, as it gets quite rainy year round. So bring pounds sterling as currency and enjoy everything that London has to offer.
Our final stop is Rome, as Holidays Lounge visits one of the oldest and most well-known cities on Earth. Once the center of the Western world, Rome has an ancient history, going all the way back to 753 BC. Walk on the same grounds as Julius Caeser and Augustus, as you take in the beautiful Roman architecture and culture. Take a Vespa around the city, and see the Coliseum, Pantheon, Roman Forum, and Trevi fountain. Have authentic Italian food and maybe take a trip to Vatican City, and get a tour of the Vatican. The possibilities are endless, so work on your opera singing and book your trip today. Forza Roma!
There’s obviously numerous other locations in Europe that you can visit, and we wish we could include every top spot in here. So if any of these or other European locations interest you, be sure to check out Holiday Lounge for the best vacations and destinations. Happy travels!
