The introduction of cheap and budget airlines has come across as a big boost and now common man too can realize their dream of visiting Europe.
There are several tourist attractions in Europe and the list is endless. Nonetheless, here is a list of ten top widely appreciated tourist destinations which has been made keeping in view the tastes of a wide spectrum of people worldwide.
The Millennium Wheel and the Tower of London, London (U.K)
London is one of the most sought after destinations in Europe. With its rich history it is surely a hot spot for one and all. The best places to visit while in London are the Millennium Wheel and the Tower of London. The millennium wheel also known as the London Eye has a striking height of 135 meters and is the most popular tourist spot. The Tower of London is actually the Royal palace of the Queen. This monument by the Thames has a lot of historical significance.
The Eiffel Tower and the Louvre Museum, Paris (France)
Paris too has plenty of tourist attractions and the beauty and significance of each surpasses the other making all of them a must visit for the tourists. But if I have to choose among the best for tourists, then it will have to be the Eiffel Tower and Louvre Museum. A landmark guarding the richness and beauty of Paris is the Eiffel Tower which is the tallest tower in France. The beautiful lighting of this Tower creates an enchanting atmosphere and mesmerizes one and all.
Art lovers should never miss the Louvre museum in Paris which is arguably one of its kinds and the best art museum in the world. There is an awesome collection of precious masterpieces of art which dates back to 19th century AD. I am sure one can never stop admiring them but just getting an opportunity to have a look is surely a lifetime experience!
The Roman Colosseum and Milan, Italy (Rome)
Rome is another country which has a rich history to captivate the world. People visiting Italy must make it a point to visit the Roman Colosseum. It is a huge and marvellous wonder with brilliant architecture in the Roman style. It was the amphitheatre with a seating capacity of 50,000 people in the ancient times! It still stands tall and firm bearing testimony to the European history through ages.
If you are a diehard fashion freak then I would suggest you make Milan your next stop in Italy. Shopping is a great fun and there are loads of options to enjoy quality entertainment mediums like theatre and cinemas. Great for foodies too!
The House of Anne Frank, Amsterdam (Netherlands)
Who doesn’t know Anne Frank! The story of this Jewish young girl and writer whose war-time diaries have revealed various facts of that time are looked upon as masterpieces of literature as well. Her house has been renovated to a museum with a bookshop and a cafe and attracts millions of tourists every year from all over the world.
Spain is another beautiful country with lovely beaches that soaks in the sun. In my view beaches are found everywhere and wouldn’t be of much significance as compared to your visit to the Alhambra Palace in Granada. This palace was the official residence of Granada’s Islamic rulers. Here, one can witness some of the supreme illustrations of Islamic art and architecture.
Tivoli Garden, Copenhagen (Denmark)
If you are planning a trip to Denmark, then I will surely recommend that you visit the Tivoli Garden in Copenhagen. With a history which dates back to 150 years this is a joy garden which has acquired world fame over the years. It is perhaps one of the oldest amusement parks in Europe and offers a host of activities making it one of the top tourist destinations Europe has to offer. There are theatres, restaurants, musical bands, lake, all in a beautifully landscaped area which illuminates in the night with a heavenly bliss.
Skiing and adventure spot, Switzerland
If you are an adventure freak and an avid admirer of natural beauty then your Switzerland must be on your travel agenda. This beautiful country has mountain ranges which are by far the best in entire Europe offering the best natural skiing tracks. The country is famous worldwide for its clean and fresh environment and with a picture perfect beauty it stands out as one of the most sought after destinations in more ways than one!
The list of fascinating tourist destinations in Europe is endless and for a tourist to choose the top destinations to suit his priority is definitely a tricky task!! Will be waiting for the views from my readers!
