Narrow your Europe vacation
Many Eastern European countries formerly under communist rule are undergoing a revitalizing transformation. They are growing by leaps and bounds and thriving under democracy and free-market economies. During a resort vacation in Poland or the Czech Republic, feel the vibrancy and the excitement in their modern cities that co-exists amid ancient architecture and historical landmarks.
Kick back and enjoy the scene on beaches along the Cote d'Azur; tour museums, churches and art galleries every day in Paris and its environs; or visit ancient castles, cathedrals, churches and archaeological ruins throughout the country. Then there's the shopping! From designer boutiques to souvenir stands, you'll surely find plenty of options for choosing something special to bring back home to friends and family.
With literally thousands of world-class attractions and events in Great Britain and Ireland, there are endless things to during a resort stay here. You can soak up heritage at a historic castle, soak in mineral waters that have been in use for centuries, watch an exciting football (soccer) match, take in world-class theater productions, play golf on championship courses among craggy cliffs and scenic countryside, or shop until you drop at major London department stores or pedestrian-friendly shopping centers.
From its traditional blue-and-white architecture to its ancient ruins, rocky mountains to golden beaches, modern cities to secluded islands - Greece is a feast for the senses. And that's not even mentioning the amazing Greek food! Sample savory spanakopita, moussaka and stuffed grape leaves during your resort stay in Greece, and if you are one to take in all of the exciting nightlife, hit the bars and clubs in Athens and on the islands to try the licorice-flavored national drink, ouzo.
Tour ancient ruins and some of the world's most beautiful cathedrals; climb to the top of the world-renowned Leaning Tower of Pisa; drive through beautiful Tuscany, filled with rolling hills and beautiful vineyards; sun yourself on the tropical Mediterranean coast. And then there's the absolutely delicious cuisine! From pizza to pasta, and polenta to prosciutto, indulge in all of your authentic Italian favorites on a resort vacation in Italy.
Because of its location in Northern Europe, Scandinavia in general enjoys long summer days - perfect for enjoying the many outdoor festivals or for exploring the wonderful landscapes. But, at the same time, winter can be long, with little daylight in some parts during the heart of the cold-weather months. That doesn't mean you couldn't - or shouldn't - plan a winter visit to these countries, however. Restaurants and nightclubs show their spirit during the winter months, throwing fun parties and bringing the warmth indoors. The magnificent Northern Lights are also more visible during the winter months.
But Spain and Portugal have plenty more to offer than its temperate Mediterranean climate and oceanfront resorts. Consider the phenomenal art museums in Barcelona and Madrid, ancient mosques, palaces and castles in Cordoba and Granada, and the tropical islands rich in nightlife off of both countries' coasts. Delicious cuisine you may sample on the Iberian Peninsula includes paella, chorizo, tortillas (egg omelets), a variety of olives, shellfish and seafood, plus sangria and port wine.
But naturally all the urban centers and smaller cities in Germany, Switzerland, Belgium and the Netherlands, offer many opportunities for sightseeing: world-renowned museums, ancient castles, sprawling gardens and historic landmarks. With top-notch performance venues, you can take in the opera, ballet or symphony. Plus, all of AffordableTours.com's resort locations make great home bases for exploring outside the city limits, with day trips into the countryside for scenic attractions or enjoying outdoor pursuits.
