There are plenty of places throughout Europe that are ideal for tourists and this article will list five of Europe’s most popular tourist destinations.
Paris is definitely one of Europe’s (and Geo and Atlas’s too) tourist hotspots. For the Eiffel Tower alone, it attracts millions of visitors who want a glimpse of the 324-meter famous tower. Paris is basked in French history, being the capital of the country and the location for lots of iconic monuments and museums, it has so much for you to explore.
Enjoy some famous French cuisine including croissants, pain au chocolates and Escargots (snails, a particular favourite of Geo’s) and of course visit the famous magical Disneyland Paris theme park and resort – our furry friends got to visit lots of other animals including a mouse named Micky, a duck named Donald and best friend of Atlas’s – a dopey dog named Goofy!
Flying over the continent to Barcelona; a city in Spain that is rich in culture and history. Enjoy Spanish tapas and sangria on the famous Las Ramblas where you will find plenty of shops, restaurants and bars filled with tourists from around the world.
More into history and of course, geography? Then take a city tour and see the famous cathedral or Camp Nou, home to FC Barcelona.
Back home in the UK, no visit here is complete without heading to the capital. From drinking tea to visiting the Queen at Buckingham Palace, there is so much to see and do in London.
Immersed in everything British; it is a great family-friendly city with lots of museums, theatre shows and British food to try. You will be have to ensure you plan ahead to get the most of your trip to London town.
Little ones will love going on the London Eye, which provides spectacular views of the River Thames and the surrounding London area; it’s a great way for everyone to see what London has to offer from 135 meters high. A trip to London would not be complete without some traditional fish and chips, a popular British dish that is one of the trademark foods of the Great Britain.
A hop, skip and a jump away (or a quick game of fetch for Atlas) and we’re over to the capital of Italy; Rome. Rome is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe, and there’s no surprise why. Basked in culture and heritage, Rome has lots on offer for tourists to see and do.
From the Colosseum to Trevi Fountain, there is plenty to tick off your bucket list. Famous for its pizza (nothing at all like what we call “pizza” here in the UK), coffee and gelato, Italy is a great place to indulge in mouth-watering, tasty food.
A fun activity to do whilst visiting Rome is a walking tour that shows you the sights of this beautiful city, many of the tours have gelato tasting or pizza making as part of the package, creating a fun activity for your children to take part in. What could be better than learning to make pizza in Italy!?
Hop on a ferry from Italy to Greece where Ancient temples can be found throughout this beautiful city. The Temple of Olympian Zeus in Athens is one of the most famous temples in the world. It is the largest temple in Greece, at 17 meters high and attracts tourists from around the world who want to learn more about Greek heritage.
The food is a must try when you’re in the capital - Greek salads full of olives, feta cheese and fresh tomatoes which are perfect in the summer as well Moussaka, a popular lamb dish similar to lasagne.
