Amazing places to see in Europe
Europe is home to some of the world’s most stunning landscapes, beautiful architecture, long, sandy beaches, majestic mountain ranges and vibrant cities. Some of the most amazing places to see in Europe include:
Enjoy a sunset gondola ride around the city built on water and take in the sights and sounds which make Venice such a romantic place to propose. Celebrated for its art and culture, Venice is without doubt one of the world’s most beautiful cities. St Mark’s Basilica, the Grand Canal and the Piazza San Marco are all worth seeing. After soaking up the sunset why not enjoy a meal in one of the waterside restaurants then stroll along the narrow streets to the Accademia Bridge which straddles the Grand Canal. Venice is also a perfect place to pop the question.
Seville´s breath-taking cathedral is the largest gothic cathedral in the world and it illustrates an incredible example of Sevillian architecture. Built in the early 16th Century and registered as a World Heritage Site in 1987 by UNESCO, it is hard to imagine how the cathedral was finished without modern machinery. Climb up the Giralda Bell Tower for stunning views over the city. Seville gives visitors a taste of the ´real Spain´ and although the city is only a 2 hour drive from the Costa del Sol, it seems a world away from the busy beaches and the hustle and bustle of the coastal resorts. Summer temperatures in Seville can be extremely high, reaching 44ºC. If you like it a bit cooler, the best place to visit is spring, when the annual Feria de Abril takes place. This event encompasses noise, colour and music with dance processions through the streets, flamenco music on every corner and a vast night time fairground.
