There are so many sights to see in Europe! Here are our 15 items to see in Europe.
1. Picnic at Versailles in France
These gardens are epic, and picnics on the lawn are free! Just stop by the supermarket and pack a lunch before you go.
2. Boat in the Blue Grotto in Italy
These underwater caves, with only a small entrance for light, make boating there a magical experience.
3. Visit a Bavarian Castle
Neuschwanstein Castle – the “Disneyland Castle” – is a sight to behold. They even offer guided tours throughout the day.
4. Then Again, Visit Any European Castle
You’ll probably stumble across many Castles on your way.
5. Ride a Bike in Amsterdam
Bikes are everywhere in Amsterdam! Travel as a local and try it out.
6. Climb the Eiffel Tower
You can’t be in the area without at least climbing to the first level of the Eiffel Tower. Take the stairs, it’s cheaper and the lines are typically shorter.
7. Ski in the Swiss Alps
There are hills and mountains, and then there are the Swiss Alps. And wouldn’t skiing there be a heck of a story?
8. Take a Cooking Lesson in France
Because who can argue with your cooking if you’ve taken a lesson in France? We’ll try your food any time!
9. Ride a Hot Air Balloon in Turkey
Several companies offer hot air balloon rides in Europe. What an unbelievable way to see the landscape than from the air.
10. Ride a Gondola in Venice
There’s no better way to see Venice than from the famous canals that run along the streets. Plus, a nice Italian man will tell you about the sights and (if you ask him nicely) maybe even sing to you.
11. Eat Macaroons in Paris
The French are famous for many things, including these delicious Macaroons. Try the ones at the famed LaDuree. You can buy a few to take home as well (if you don’t eat them all first).
12. Dance in an Irish Pub
You haven’t been to a pub until you’ve been to one in Ireland. Go and hear a small local band, and perhaps even find a local or two to spin you around the floor to the music.
13. Try Gelatto in Italy
You can’t cross Italy without picking up a gelatto on the way. Homemade, rich, creamy, and very affordable. Ahhh Italian gelatto.
14. Tea at the Jane Austen Center in England
If you love classic literature, why not try prop-ah tea at the center dedicated to the lovely Ms. Austen herself? Breathe in the culture, drink in the tea.
15. Hike the Trails at Cinque Terre
Cinque Terre (“Five Towns”) set along the side of the Italian coastline are a sight to see themselves. And for small fee, you can hike the trails that were once the only connections between the villages.
