If I visit Europe only once...what do I HAVE to see?

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip to Europe next year and I'm planning on spending between 10 and 14 days. This will be my first time in Europe. I don't know where I want to go, because I want to go everywhere! I will be travelling with my girlfriend and no kids.

When we travel, we like to immerse ourselves by eating, sleeping, and commuting like the locals. We enjoy diverse cultures and love experiencing those "wow" moments that only occur when you're experiencing something for the first time. We love new ethnic foods, and open air markets. We prefer having plenty to do as it is hard for us to sit and "relax" on vacation. To provide you with more interests, we enjoy the outdoors, history, and architecture. However, if I have to pick one thing we enjoy more than others, it's EATING!

I really want to do London eventually, but I'm afraid it will not be "foreign" enough and we really want to feel that culture shock.

Pretend as If I'll only be able to visit Europe once: where would you tell me to go? What things do I NEED to see, and MOST importantly, what do I need to do? Give me your top 4 or 5 SPECIFIC ideas. Your opinion is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Ean
