CHARMING CITIES TO VISIT IN EUROPE

EUROPE01

If you have the opportunity to visit Europe, which cities would you choose to visit? As for me, I would love to revisit Dublin in Ireland, Paris in France, Barcelona in Spain and Rome in Italy. These few cities have always given me the sort of memories that I would never forget. The differences in their culture, architectural structures and cuisine have always amazed me.

EUROPE02

Dublin is the largest city and the capital of Ireland. It is an economic, administrative and cultural centre for the island of Ireland. It has the biggest libraries and literary museums in the whole of Ireland, namely the National Print Museum of Ireland and National Library of Ireland. The Irish artistic scene is also world known. Some of the famous includes the Irish Museum of Modern Art, the National Gallery, the Hugh Lane Municipal Gallery, the City Arts Centre, the Douglas Hyde Gallery, the Project Arts Centre and the Royal Hibernian Academy. You should not miss out Dublin's famous Ha'penny Bridge over the River Liffey. Dublin Hotels can be easily found everywhere within the city.

Paris, the capital city of France, is one of the world's leading business and cultural centers. On top of their uptrend and remarkable fashion designer’s products, it has the most remarkable landmarks such as the Notre Dame de Paris, Eiffel Tower, and the Napoleonic Arc de Triomphe. You should also not miss out France’s gastronomical diversity such as their bread, cake, croissant, baguette, etc which are of world class standards. As for accommodation, Paris Hotels are easily available.

Barcelona, Spain, is an important cultural and major tourist destination. It is a world heritage site by UNESCO for its rich cultural heritage as well as architectural works. One of the good places to visit would be the still unfinished church of the Sagrada Familia, one of the remarkable works of the famous architect, Antoni Gaudi. The church was constructed since 1882 and is scheduled to be fully completed by 2026. There are also many castle-like buildings with beautiful architectural designs such as the Barcelona Cathedral, Santa Maria del Mar Church, Palau Nacional, Arc de Triomf and Castell dels tres Dracs in this city. Barcelona Hotels are plentiful surrounding major business centers within the city.

Rome is the capital city of Italy and the country's largest and most populous city. One of the most famous landmarks for Rome is the Colosseum, the largest amphitheatre ever built in the Roman Empire between 70 and 80 AD. It was used for gladiatorial combat. Some of the interesting sites include the Column of Marcus Aurelius, Piazza del Campidoglio, Piazza della Repubblica, Piazza del Popolo, Ponte Sant'Angelo, Saint Peter's Square and the Quirinal Palace, house of the President of the Italian Republic. There are so many interesting sites to visit that I assure you that you would not feel bored at all. Since you cannot visit all the beautiful places in a day, why not check in any of the nice Rome Hotels and experience living like the Romans.

Depends so much on the mood of the time of travel where you would like to linger, especially in Europe where cultural diversity is so obvious within relatively short distances. I had this grandiose intention of "seeing" Europe during one of my university vacations. I never left Italy during the whole 7 weeks. Even then I didn't get any further than south than Sorrento or north than Venice.
