Affordable Trip to the Heart of Europe

Europe is one of the seven continents in the world. There are some interesting and amazing places in Europe that everyone should visit. But before flying to your dream of Europe you should have a travel plan that includes accommodation, travel expenses and food expenses. In your Europe trip you should not miss some fascinating places like London, Rome, Italy, Paris, Berlin some other places.

Affordable Trip To The Heart Of Europe

 

 

London: In the United Kingdom, London is the largest metropolitan city. Every year 14 million visitors across the world are visiting London. The city is organised well with railways and airways. This city is known for its education, media, entertainment, tourism and arts. The most visited places in London are   London eye, British museum, Towers of London, and National gallery.

Rome: It is known as eternal city of Europe. In Europe continent it is the third most visited city. This city is known for its traditions, magnificent parks, and culture. In this city there are many museums like Vatican museum, Capitoline museum and so on. The famous tourist spots in Rome are Pantheon, Capitoline hill, Colosseum, and Trevi fountain.

Switzerland: It is popularly known as paradise on earth. Even though it a small country, it attracts most of the visitors with its natural beauty, shiny glaceries, green hills, snow mountains, rich heritage and resorts. Famous tourist’s spots in Switzerland are Swiss national park, Tropical Alps, Jungfraujoch and Wengen-Murren.

Paris: This is also known as city of lights. It is also the third most visited place in Europe. The best landmarks of Paris are Eiffel tower, Notre Dame, and Latin Quarters.

These are the biggest tourist’s spots of Europe. As I said earlier in order to fly to your favourite spots you should have a plan.

  • The first thing you have to do is decide your destination. As Europe has this many visiting places search for the popular one. Search on internet for various travelling packages available. This will enable you to determine the exact package which suits both your requirements and budget.
  • Give priority to that travelling mode which is comfortable to you. If you are planning a trip for longer duration then you can take the Eurail pass. This pass will save your money.
  • As there are many important places in Europe the accommodation costs are also high. Get the help of a travelling agent to find the cheaper hotels.
  • Get the information about the weather conditions and pack those clothes which are suitable to the environment.
  • It is beneficial for you to make insurance before planning for a trip. There are different type of insurances available like travel insurance, payment protection insurance. These insurances will provide you some coverage against losses in the future.

Start to bike season featuring pictures from Lake Garda

I had a really long ski season this year and therefore I started biking rather late, but at least I started. This reminded me of a great biking trip to Europes Mountainbike hotspot Lake Garda (North Coast) in May 2009.

going up

Going up is the hard part …

going down

going down is more fun … most times …

I wish all cyclists out there a great season without injuries!

The biggest love story ever …

Julia

I read something about William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet just recently and therefore I had a look at my photo archive for pictures of Verona. I discovered this nice pictures which was taken just beneath Juliet’s balcony in her families house.

It is told that you will be fortunate if you touch the breast of Juliet´s statue, therefore people do it all day long and it gets this very polished look!

Verona is a great place – but a little bit touristy. If you have never been there, go visit it, if you have – try to see the other cities in the area (like Mantua), which are not as crowded and very nice, too!

Here you can see a picture of Mantuas main square “Piazza Sordello”

Volcano …

View from Volcano

View from Vulcano towards Lipari

This fridays picture was taken on top of Mount Vulcano on the Aeolian Islands north of Sicily. Volcano and Stromboli are perhaps the most famous one, but you should definitely visit Lipari (the island in the background), too, as the city there is a perfect example for an Italian town.

Piazza Sordello, Mantua

Piazza Sordello, MantovaMantua is a city that is often overlooked, but this town deserves a lot of credit. This picture of Piazza Sordello is one of my favorite pictures from my last trip to this exquisite northern Italian city.

Lake Garda

Lake Garda

Lake Garda - an excellent place for mountain biking!

I was in Milan, Italy for two days and although there is still snow in the area, you can feel that spring is slowly approaching.

Now I am back in cold Austria (with a lot of fresh snow) and I am thinking about spring for the first time this year. One of my favorite things to do in Summer is Mountain biking. And there is nothing better to start the biking season than some tours at Lake Garda in spring.
