If you're traveling to Europe, like me you may wish to try and pack in as many destinations into one trip as possible. Luckily Europe is the best place to be able to actually make this happen. With a great transportation network of local and multi country trains, planes and car rentals planning a multi city European vacation is easier than ever.
Keep in mind If you are organizing your own tour around Europe, you can make it as budget conscious or luxurious as you want. For trips that conform to the former, remember that there are plenty of youth hostels that offer dorm rooms for a small price, as well as single rooms for slightly higher as well. Europe has accommodations for every budget and most cities have plenty of cheap and moderately inexpensive hotels that offer more privacy than a hostel, or you can also rent an AirBNB. Traveling by rail one can easily travel from city to city quickly all throughout Europe. Something you can further investigate here.
If you're looking for a high end hotel and don't want to organize your trip yourself there are some great new sites out there that will do the leg work for you. In fact, all you need to do is check out companies like the one you will find on this website and give them a rundown of your requirements, then they will do the rest all the way down to even booking your restaurant meal in the evening! Now you can't get any more convenient than that can you?
Florence is one of my favorite cities in Italy. It is an outstanding walking city filled with beautiful piazzas, churches, sculptures and food & wine. Here are some of the places you shouldn't miss.
Many of us have dreamt of visiting Venice. The ever sinking city that started as a stronghold for those running from war. A place that un-expectantly turned into a city of romance, art, culture and music.
Truman Capote Once said “Venice is like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs in one go.”
Boy was he right; Venice can be a disorienting and intriguing labyrinth of streets, and people. An exhilarating, culture rich place that has captivated people around the world with its picture perfect canals and waterside palazzi’s. With virtually no cars on the island, getting around is done by foot or boat, a world far different than most we are used to.
Nowadays more than 18 million tourists a year visit Venice. They outnumber locals by 2 to 1 on any given day. That hasn’t taken away from the infinite charm and awe that this city has, but it has made it more expensive. As a backpacker you may be thinking that coming to Venice is out of the question. So here are some tips and tricks to enjoying this mesmerizing city on a small budget.
