Classical Europe - Honeymoon Tour

Classical Europe

Description

With over 3000 years of history and culture to discover it’s no wonder that Italy is the most popular country in Europe for Americans to visit. From the Colosseum to the city’s world-famous aqueducts, Rome is filled with Imperial architecture, while Florence hosts many of the Renaissance’s artistic masterpieces including Michelangelo’s statue of David. For those looking for a taste of Italy, Sicily’s seafood, Naples’ pizza, and Bologna’s pasta cannot be missed.
Europe’s almost unmanageable wealth of attractions is its biggest single draw: the birthplace of democracy in Athens, the Renaissance art of Florence, the graceful canals of Venice, the Napoleonic splendour of Paris, and the multilayered historical and cultural canvas of London. Less obvious but no less impressive attractions include Moorish palaces in Andalucía, the fascinating East-meets-West brew of Istanbul in Turkey, the majesty of meticulously restored imperial palaces in Russia’s former capital St Petersburg and the ongoing project of Gaudí’s La Sagrada Família in Barcelona.
