If you have never been to Europe and want to start your journey, what cities would you want to visit first? Which cities will be your top priority? With so many top quality travel destinations in Europe, it is surely a universal dilemma. Of course, the decision will depend on a lot of factors such as the duration and budget of your trip. If you want to visit at least three cities in Europe, we would recommend travelling to the following three: London, Paris and Rome.
Multicultural, noisy and vibrant, London is one of the biggest cities on earth. It is a center for global fashion, culture, trade and finances, politics and many more. London, standing on the river Thames, is approximately 2000 years old and is a dominant representative of the European culture. With limitless number of top quality tourist attractions, London is surely one of the most visited cities on Earth if not the most visited one. Not visiting London at least once in a lifetime will make you a below average kind of traveler. The history of London; its famous sights such as the Big Ben, the London Eye, Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, the British Museum; London Skyscrapers; and the London Nightlife make it so popular among tourist from around the world. And it’s always a good idea to start your trip with London.
“Paris is always a good idea”- Audrey Hepburn couldn’t say it more perfectly than this. Paris offers so much for its visitors that it should take at least a month to have all the major Paris experiences. Paris is commonly known as “City of Lights”, “City of Love” and the “Capital of Fashion”. French History; its Culture: Theater, Film and Music; famous landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, museums such as the Louvre museum and the museum Musee d’Orsay, churches and cathedrals such as Notre Dame de Paris and Sacre-Coeur make it a place everyone cherish to be at least one in a lifetime. A Europe trip not including Paris will always be incomplete.
You can’t say Rome is a step behind London and/or Paris. In fact, for many, Rome is the most favorite place to be in Europe. Rome is filled with architectural, historic, and cultural heritages. Fascinating monuments, thousand year old churches and basilicas, charming palaces, peaceful fountains and baroque statues, Rome has it all. The Colosseum of Rome, St. Peter’s Basilica, the Vatican Museums, Pantheon, the Roman Forum, and Piazza Navona, Trevi Fountain, and Spanish Steps are some of the most visited tourist attractions in Rome. To describe the beauty of Rome, a scholar said “For someone who has never seen Rome, it is hard to believe how beautiful life can be”.
You can keep arguing which city among these three is the best. But it’s never possible to come to a conclusive decision. Explore the best of Europe, have fun and see the true color of life.
