Europe Travel Ideas for a Memorable Vacation

March 01, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 230

Globe trotters from across the world prefer visiting multiple places within a short time; that way they get to see and learn more within budget and a short span of time. Ideally, they prefer to see and experience places that are well-known across the world. However, in a hurry to visit these places, often they miss out on the off-beat destinations that could be of great interest and beauty. Therefore, one of the best Europe travel ideas could be day trips in Europe. Currently, vacation rental deals in Europe majorly focus on these trips, given their popularity among frequent travellers. Some of the most popular day trip destinations include:

Jungfraujoch from Zurich: Ethereal would be an understatement for this destination, as the train journey through the Alpine beauty could unravel the marvel that nature has in store for us. Once you reach the destination, there is not dearth of things that could be done. While snow sports like skiing, ice man making and snow throwing are the most commonplace options, you could visit the Ice palace or the Sphinx Observation Terrace facing Europe's longest glacier-the Aletsch.

Naples and Pompeii from Rome: A historical tour, no doubt, but something that could take you on a roller coaster ride to the ancient city of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the cities that were shattered by the flare-up of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. This entire day trip takes you on a journey along the Highway of the Sun, ruins of the Abbey of Monte Cassino, which were destroyed during World War II, not to forget the beautiful medieval villages that dot the route.

Some of the other best places to see in this day trip include the Royal Palace, San Carlo Opera House, Basilica of San Francesco di Paola, Gallery of Umberto, and the Castel Nuovo. The valley of Mount Vesuvius, however, is the centre of attraction as you get a guided tour to the buried villages of Ercolano or Herculaneum, Torre del Greco and Torre Annunziata and experience the last moments of the people before the villages were completely buried by ash. The daily life and the utensils, clothes used by the locals is clearly visible in the carefully preserved objects here.

Versailles from Paris: A trip to the castles and palaces of Versailles brings you the unforgettable joy of experiencing the royalty of the city. The Palace of Versailles has lots to share with you, right from Louis XIV's suit of rooms, the Grand Hall of Mirrors and the residing apartments of Dauphin and Dauphine. Some of the other points of attraction include the Queen's Bedroom, the Gallery of Battles, the palace gardens and the Queen's Hamlet. The Grand Trianon, a mini palace recluse where the king liked to spend his time outside Versailles.
