Best restaurants in Europe. A look inside
Europe's best destination restaurants. Tasty travel.
Travelers often want to embrace the immense and for a short trip to see as many beauty and sights as possible
Verona and Venice. A convenient and fast train runs from Verona to Venice, so in just an hour or so you will find yourself in the city of canals and the palazzo. This is convenient if the trip is short, and the soul requires more beauty and atmosphere. A couple of days in Verona is enough for walking along the streets and an excursion to the castle of Castelvecchio. Be sure to go to the famous Amphitheater, built in the 1st century AD: during the day you can get there with a guided tour, and in summer evenings there are often concerts and operas.
Look into the courtyard of Juliet's house to take a picture on the background of the balcony, touch the statue and, if you want, leave a note in the wall. And a hundred meters from this house stands Romeo's house, which, unlike the fictitious house of Juliet, actually belonged to the real Montecca family - the prototype of Shakespearean heroes. In Venice, a couple of days may not be enough, because it is so nice to walk along the narrow streets and bridges through the canals. There is also something to see here: from the well-known St. Mark's Cathedral and the Doge's Palace to more modest basilicas and churches. In general, the whole city is a huge museum, so take a gondola and go on a canal tour. But two days may not be enough to visit the famous areas of Murano and Burano, leave them for the next trip.
Helsinki and Stockholm. It is not difficult to see two Scandinavian capitals in one trip - and, by the way, a trip to Stockholm through Helsinki will be cheaper. There are ferries between Finland and Sweden, which serve several companies. For example, you can sit in Helsinki at 17:30 and at ten in the morning the next day to be in Stockholm. Two days is enough to visit the Finnish capital. It is good and easy to walk in the center - streets in any case will lead you to the embankment and to the Cathedral - and make a list of attractions in advance.
Include the Campi Silence Chapel, Temppeliaukio Rock Church, Sibelius Monument and Esplanade Park. And if you want to see the city from a height, walk to the Finnair SkyWheel ferris wheel on the waterfront. Stockholm in two days will surely have time to charm you. Start your tour from the city center, where all the main attractions are located: the Royal Palace, the Reichstag building, St. Nicholas Church and the German Church, the narrowest lane in the city and the smallest monument. And the second day you can devote walks along the streets and the promenade, look at the island of Djurgarden with amusement parks and interesting museums.
After a year of hard work, every person needs rest
Ah, Italy! If you think that everything here is limited to pizza, pasta and gelato, you are very mistaken! Traditional and at the same time simple and healthy dishes - this is about Tuscan cuisine. To appreciate it, be sure to have a Florentine style steak dinner. Pesto reigns in Liguria - a bright green sauce made from basil, hard cheese and local olive oil. Come here for variety: in a region where there is both sea and mountains, on the table there is a place for everything - from fish to vegetables and pasta. If you want to try the very Italian cuisine - pizza and spaghetti - go to Naples. Here you need to try Margarita, mozzarella from buffalo milk, eat a real Caprese on Capri and drink Limoncello in Sorrento. In Sicily you will try not quite typical Italian cuisine: there are dishes that you will not find in other regions. And also here is the most delicious Italian gelato.
Amsterdam and Brussels. Traveling to Amsterdam is wonderful in that you can take a train from this city to many beautiful places around. We chose the capital of Belgium as a couple: Brussels, many tourists underestimate, believing that there is nothing to do for more than a couple of days in this city. So that you will have the opportunity to confirm or refute this opinion. Moreover, the road from Holland to Belgium will take less than two hours. How to spend two days in Amsterdam? Depends on your interests. The city is suitable for both young people, who can go all out (here with reservations, of course), as well as history and art lovers.
You can combine one with the other: on the first day, walk along the streets along the canals, ride a rented bike, sit in coffee shops, and in the evening stare at the windows of the Red Light District. In the morning, look at the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum, visit the house of Anne Frank and the Rembrandt Museum. Brussels is a more strict and orderly city. You should start the inspection from the historical center, where the Market Square, the Cathedral of St. Michael and the Sacre Coeur Basilica are located. While walking through the streets, do not accidentally pass by the famous Manneken Pis: the sculptural symbol of Brussels is very small, and many tourists find it not the first time. For more modern impressions go to the Atomium - a monument, which is an enlarged iron molecule. In the upper ball is an observation deck with excellent views of the city, and at the foot - Mini-Europe Park with miniatures of the most beautiful sights of the European Union.
Prague and Dresden. If you rent a car in Prague, the choice of neighboring cities for exploring is simply huge - you can also go around the Czech Republic (go to Karlovy Vary and Brno, see the castles), and get to Austria and Germany. We chose a small German Dresden in a couple of the Czech capital, which will take a couple of days to inspect. But two days to Prague may not be enough - this atmospheric medieval city with unusual architecture would be desirable to consider and discover again and again. Be sure to walk around the castle complex of Prague Castle and go to St. Vitus Cathedral - it's good to return here in the evening, when the cathedral is highlighted and looks like a carved lantern.
Inspect the city from a height - to do this, go up to the observation deck of the Petrin Tower. Walk along the narrow streets with colorful houses and cross the river along the famous Charles Bridge to get to Old Town Square with amazing astronomical clocks. Less than two hours by car - and now you find yourself in an amazing city, burned to the ground at the end of World War II, but so alive today. This is not the most popular tourist destination, but the more valuable are the few days spent here.
Start exploring the city from the old center, Altstadt with the Frauenkirche church, which resisted the bombing, but then collapsed anyway and stood in ruins for 40 years as a warning to posterity. Today it has been restored, and from the observation deck offers a great view of the city. Look at the Academy of Arts, Semper's Opera, Zwinger Palace Complex. If you want to get involved in art, go to the Dresden Art Gallery, where you can see the paintings of Vermeer and Rembrandt. And of course, take a longer walk along the promenade and the streets - in Dresden you can find stunning buildings and even entire neighborhoods (for example, bright independent Neustadt).
