Paris and London – Two Beautiful Cities
Can you imagine not visiting Paris and London even if you are in Europe? No.., right? Therefore, by initiating your journey in London, you may get your primary taste of the continent without worrying about any language barriers. After all, you are pretty much familiar with English, which is why you are reading this article! Here, you can simply take a tour of the city in a double-decker bus, ride the Underground, explore the great British Museum, view the Tower of London, and even ride the London Eye. Further, you can explore the city of love, Paris, by visiting Notre Dame Cathedral, Le Louvre Museum, Eiffel Tower, and even Grand Palais. This means that you can also feel love as you walk across the streets, sip coffees at cafes, and even while having breakfast in restaurants.
Oslo, Stockholm, and Copenhagen
You will definitely be delighted to visit Copenhagen, especially because of its picturesque harbour named Nyhavn. In fact, even if you are travelling with your loved ones, including children, they would love to visit one of the oldest amusement parks across the globe, Tivoli Gardens. Also, you may visit the gorgeous city, Stockholm, where you may visit the City Hall, stroll through Gamla Stan, and even go for a day cruise through the archipelago. Last, but not least for a Scandinavian explorer, you may visit Oslo in Norway and get to know about Vikings, go for a cruise Norway in a Nutshell, and even opt for a ski jump. Sounds fun, right?
Venice, Florence, and Rome: Get a taste of Italy
Oh, you would have definitely not thought about visiting Italy while planning a tour to Europe. And Venice, Florence, and Rome are some cities that occur to the mind of a person thinking about Italy. Isn’t that right?
If you are really planning to go to these places, you must spend the most of your time in Florence than the other two especially because of the number of trips you can have while being here. One day, you may explore the city and on the remaining couple of days, you may go for small excursions to Siena and Tuscany along with other small hill towns. Opting for a public bus or renting a car, it is all up to you to decide! San Gimignano in Tuscany is a must-visit for sure! Rome and Venice need not be described to you as you might already be familiar enough with the watery streets of Venice and the beautiful city of Rome. Also, just in case you are willing to spend over 10 days here in Italy, you might also consider adding Cinque Terre, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast, and the even Dolomites into the itinerary you are currently working on.
Paris, Brussels, and Amsterdam
If you are willing to spend more time staying in a city rather than spending that on travelling from one to another, adding these three beautiful cities to the itinerary will help you make the most out of your idea. Since these cities are connected with short rides through trains, you can save a lot of time in travelling. Also, if you are willing to visit the continent in the month of April, we are all recommending this itinerary highly! You can even cycle, cruise, or walk alongside the canals of Amsterdam along with viewing over Ghent in Belgium from a bird’s eye.
How to decide the right Itinerary?
Now that you are aware of the possible itineraries that you may consider while on your tour to Europe, you might have become even more confused. You don’t need to worry about that since you can follow a certain pattern for deciding the right one for your trip. All you need to consider are the travelling style and season. First of all, the season plays a crucial role in determining the right itinerary since it is with different seasons that different cities seem to be the most beautiful. With regard to style, travelling with the family, interests in history, and outdoor activities must be considered.
