8 Must-See Places in Europe

Have you ever dreamed of traveling around Europe? If you haven’t yet, it’s time to educate yourself about the 8 must-see places in Europe when you get the chance.

Greece

First on the list is Greece, known as the cradle of Western civilization as well as where democracy was born. If you’re a fan of mythology, including the Percy Jackson series, you’ll definitely learn more about the Greek gods as you tour around ancient ruins and temples. Greece is rich in historical sites, but for the more outgoing traveller, it is also home to sunny beaches, various nightlife scenes, and cultural activities.

Rome

Another European city with rich mythology is Rome, the Eternal City. Feed your mind with its rich history and feast your eyes on Rome’s wide array of architectural sites including The Pantheon, The Trevi Fountain, The Colosseum, and many more.

After Rome, you might as well continue traveling around Italy, home of famous artists and scholars including Leonardo da Vinci, Gallileo, and Machiavelli. In addition, Italy is also known for its cuisine: food that smells and tastes great! Italian food’s aroma is enough to make any traveller salivate. Couples will also have a blast here as Italy is one of the most romantic places in Europe.paris-france-night-city-cool-tight1

Speaking of romance, it is said that French is the language of love, and when in France, you better head on over to its capital, Paris. And when you’re in Paris, the first place you should definitely visit is the Eiffel Tower! Paris has great architecture and is a must-see place for art lovers as well. Other notable attractions include the Louvre Museum and the Notre Dame Cathedral.

Barcelona Spain (2)

A colourful culture awaits you in Spain: its art and literature, cinema, music and dance, cuisine, and even sports. Spain is both conservative and liberal: sacred places like churches and cathedrals are abundant, but there is also a fair share of beachside nightclubs and other places where anyone can have a good time. Barcelona, Madrid, and Seville are some of the most recommended cities in Spain.

If you don’t want to experience language barriers, you can opt to visit English-speaking countries and cities in Europe, and London is one of them. It is home to some World Heritage Sites, which must be on your to-go list: Greenwich, the Kew Gardens, and the Tower of London. London is also where you’ll find the well-known London Eye and of course, the Buckingham Palace. In addition, London is also known for its various pubs where you can help yourself to some beer and fish and chips!

If you’re up for a bit of language challenge, go for European places with much thicker English accents such as Ireland and Scotland. Both are known for their unique music and beautiful sceneries. Ireland is home to three World Heritage Sites: the Giant’s Causeway, Skellig Michael, and the BrunaBoinne. Scotland is well-known as the place that inspired the movie, “Braveheart,” and it has lush landscapes that are Instagram-worthy.

If Europe were an iceberg, these places then are just its tip as there are many other places in Europe that are equally worth checking out.
