Planning a holiday to any of the hundreds of European holiday destinations around the globe is easy and fun to do. Plan on spending a couple of days in Paris, soaking up some of the city s culture and soaking up some sun in an area in France you have probably never visited? Plan on visiting one or a few of the beautiful castles in northern France or Greece that are recognized as world class attractions? If so, book your trip today to enjoy all that and more, and by all means enjoy your stay in a relaxing and memorable way.
The first thing you should know about is the basics about European destinations. They are divided into three categories: Western, Eastern and Specialty destinations. Western destinations tend to be more family oriented and are popular for tourists who like to travel to different areas of Europe and experience the local flavor and scenery. A popular example of a Western European destination is Switzerland, where you can go snowboarding, hike, boat, bike, ski or even take a dip in the warm waters of Lake Zurich! Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic, Austria and Switzerland are all Western European countries with many tourists who come here to take in the scenic beauty and landscape.
Eastern European destinations are not quite as widely advertised as Western European destinations, but they are also some of the most popular European holiday spots, and they are not so different than Western European destinations in any regard. These places are popular because of their stunning scenery, their rich history and their relaxed atmosphere. The suggested read for those in this category is “The Russian Landscape”, by Pavel Tsatsouline. It is recommended for those interested in history, travel and fine dining, because it is filled with interesting information about places in Eastern Europe that are hard to reach by car.
The next set of European holiday destinations to visit in March is Spain. Spain has a lot to offer tourists from all over the world, and the cities of Andalucia (a region of Spain), Galicia (the capital of provinces in the north of Spain), Castilla la Mancha (the Costa Blanca), and Ovilla (a bay on the northern coast) are some of its main highlights. For those interested in culture, there are museums such as the Museo Nacional Cultural della Castilla in Madrid, the Picasso Museum in Barcelona, the Musee des Beaux-Arts in Barcelona, the Prado Museum in Madrid, the Alhambra Palace, the Royal Theater in Granada, the Royal Academy of Art in Lisbon, the Congress Complex in Lisbon, the Teatro Estoril in Lisbon and the Santo Domingo Church. For great nightlife, don’t miss out on these places to visit in March: the Teatro Metropolitan in Lisbon, Estoril’s Park in Lisbon, the Estoril Secreto de Assisi in Lisbon, Estoril’s Central Park, the Olimpia Golf Course, the Estoril Theater, Pizzas Internazionale, Estoril Secreto, the Baroque Theatine in Lisbon, and the Vitacocalio in Lisbon.
Last but not least on our list of European destinations to visit in March is Italy. Italy is one of Europe’s most popular tourist destinations, due to its picturesque landscapes, rich culture, history, and art. Most tourists come to Italy in summer, when the weather is warm and the weather is pleasant, since the snow in March is very cold. There are many things that make Italy a top tourist destination, and one of them is its beautiful cities; Rome, Florence, Milan, Venice, and San Francisco, among others, are some of the best-loved ones in Italy. For those interested in culture, museums, history, or architecture, you will not find a better place to study or research on any topic than the cities of Rome, Florence, and Milan.
You will have to learn a new language if you decide to travel to France, the first country in Western Europe. French is spoken in the country, but English is widely used for business transactions. If you do decide to learn French, you will have to learn both English and French. The easiest way to learn both languages is to take a language course. If you don’t want to spend money, you can also just sign up for one of those free online courses. French and English are almost synonymous with each other, so when you say French, most people would immediately think of English.
Your travel plans should be based on how long you intend to stay. If you plan to stay for only a couple of days, you will obviously save money, but it would be a little bit harder for you to try out the local cuisine. If you are planning to go there for a weekend, you should get around half way through your trip by knowing the currency exchange rates. The exchange rate is the difference between your currency and the national currency.
For instance, if you are from the United Kingdom you would probably use the U.K pound and EUR/GBP. If you were from France, you would probably use the French Franc and EUR/USD. These two currency pairs are usually very close to one another. So when you receive your money at the bank or from your credit card company, it would be for EUR/USD and not the opposite. You need to know this before you exchange your money so that you can make the conversion.
