A European vacation is always an adventure. There’s so much to see in Europe that many people visit over and over again and barely scratch the surface of what it has to offer. If you’re weighing destinations with your travel agent, Europe should be on your list for the following reasons:
Safe, Easy Travel
Navigating Europe is extremely safe and easy. Affordable, reliable public transportation abounds in Europe. Many tiny European villages have more available public transportation options than some major American cities. It’s simple to hop on a bus or train and zip from one destination to the next. Thanks to European Union (EU) border rules, it’s easy to travel between European countries. When going between any of the 27 EU countries and their cooperating partners, you can cross borders without going through immigration and customs at each stop.
In the past, traveling through Europe meant exchanging currency and trying to learn a new way of gauging prices in each country. Now, 23 countries in Europe use the Euro as their currency. That means you can exchange your money once and travel into new places all over Europe with the same currency. There are some important exceptions, however; the United Kingdom, Czech Republic, Switzerland, and Sweden are among the countries that have kept their own currency, so you will need to make exchanges in each of these locations.
There is truly something for every traveler in Europe. If you love sophisticated, urban settings with great shopping and restaurants, mark London, Paris, Milan, and Berlin on your map. If exploring history is your thing, take a cruise down the Danube past striking castles or tour the ancient ruins in Greece. Enjoy beach life along the Mediterranean coast, camp in the Scottish Highlands, or ski in the Swiss Alps. Europe offers a never-ending array of adventures.
