Learn About Europe’s Best Cities

By Mark Walters

So you are planning a trip to Europe? There are certain cities that are “must sees.” They are the location of world famous sites and landmarks, and offer a special insight into Europe’s myriad of cultures.

First, London. The diversity of London is amazing. In fact, there are more languages spoken in London than in any other city in the world. This creates a vivid mlange of cultures. With its theaters, museums, galleries, famous buildings and other landmarks, including Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, London is a center of world culture. If you love to shop you will not want to pass up London. It is sometimes considered to be the best place to shop in Europe to buy designer clothing as well as all sorts of other interesting finds.

The beautiful Spanish city of Barcelona sits on the Mediterranean coast. As a consequence of it being the capital of the Catalan region of Spain, it has its own proud and unique history and culture, which sets it apart from the majority of Spain. Historically and and architecturally there is a lot of interest, from Roman ruins to spectacular churches. There are countless art galleries and museums to walk around and also a selection of beautiful, relaxing beaches. For sports fans, there is the opportunity to watch a game of football at the Camp Nou, which is home to what is widely agreed to be the best football team on the planet.

You must see Venice! This city is actually a group of islands in a lagoon in the Adriatic Sea that are linked together by a system of canals. At one time, Venice was one of the most powerful of European cities. It was a merchant shipping center as well as a bastion of naval power. Venice is the home of incredible architecture. It was also the birthplace of much important Renaissance art and you can still see these important pieces in Venice. Venice can be navigated by foot but, better yet, find some time to travel the “streets” of Venice by Gondala. You will not regret it.

Everyone must see Paris at least once in their life. It is known as one of the most romantic cities in the world. It is also a large city that pulses with life. Many world famous architectural sites are found in Paris, including The Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame and The Eiffel Tower. The River Seine runs through Paris, giving it much of its character. Look carefully and you will find small squares and secret gardens at the heart of Paris. The Louvre is the most well known museum of art in Paris but there are many others to visit as well. And who does not know that Paris is a center for food and shopping?
