Euro Quiz # 110 - Potpourri

Jump to last reply

1- The XXXXXX is the name both of a shallow river in northeastern Italy just south of Ravenna, and the name historically given to a river that was famously crossed by Julius Caesar in 49 BC. While it is not a proven fact, historians generally agree that the two rivers are indeed one and the same; this was not always the case.
The modern-day river runs for about 80 kilometers, from the Apennine Mountains to the Adriatic Sea through the southern Emilia-Romagna region, between the towns of Rimini and Cesena.

What is the name of the river famous in Roman lore? and where generally is it?

2- One of Amsterdam's popular sights is the XXXXXXXXXX church - a church hidden away on the uppermost floor of a building at times when whatever typ eof Christianity was worshipped here was frowned upon by authorities thus they had to hide - name the church?

3- The main street of East Berlin is XXXXXXXX, named for a certain type of tree that lines it - name the street and the tree type lining it?

4- London's XXXXXXXXXX was an entertainment complex near Piccadilly Circus that was originally built in 1896 as a restaurant, and closed in 1965. In 1984 the complex reopened as an exhibition and entertainment space, which operated until 2014. As of 2014, it is under redevelopment to become a hotel. What is the name of this now shuttered entertainment complex - often maligned as being total kitsch?

5- Where in the U.K. can you ride double-decker trams along a seafront?

6- Tivoli, about an hour by train or bus east of Rome is famous for having two stellar sights - one right in town is the XXXXXXXXXX and one a few miles out of town is XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.

7- This French regional city is known for its Owl Trail - a marked trail winding thru this town more known for its mustard than wine though in the Burgundy wine area?

8- Scotland has two awesomely scenic railways - what are they called and where do they go?

9- This famous Piazza is a belvedere that overlooks Florence from the other side of the Arno River - what is its name?

10 - London has 8 Royal Parks - how many can you name?

Cheers!
