European Vacation

Have you ever dreamed of taking a European vacation? Maybe you've been once or twice before but you are dying to go back. Or you're ready to explore an entirely new city. Where would you go? What would you do? At More Than Paper, we've been doing some research (and planning of our own upcoming vacation!) and developed a European Destination Quick Guide.  Through hours of research, we've narrowed it down to 5 cities that are top on our list. See if you agree or if they entice you at all! 

1. Amsterdam - Toss aside any prejudice you may have about this city for its Red Light District or laws on marijuana. Amsterdam is home to incredible museums --  from The Van Gough, Rijksmusuem (home to more than 8,000 works including Rembrandt and Ver Meer) and the Stedelijk Museum. Tour the Anne Frank House, the beautiful windmills of the countryside, or the expansive canals. Experience a true Heineken and learn about the brewery by taking the informative tour (a popular destination spot for non-drinkers, too!) 

2. Prague - An entirely different vacation experience, immerse yourself in incredible culture unlike others before. Spend time touring the Prague Castle, Old Town Square, Old Town Hall and Astronomical Clock. Explore traditional pub food and drinks. 

3. Barcelona - See incredible architecture at the Gaudi and the quintessential Gothic Cathedral. Explore art at the Picasso museum and works of Miro. Indulge in tapas, seafood and red wine.  A late night party city, consider hitting the town for a late dinner and drinks into in the evening at one of the fabulous night clubs - many known for indie rockers and live music. 

4. Paris - See the Eiffel Tour, tour the Louvre, Musee D'Orsay, Pompidou (modern art museum), Musee de l'Orangerie (filled with works of Monet's Water Lilies!), the Arc de Triomphe, shopping on the Champs Elysse... we could go on.  There's nothing quite like french food either. 

5. Florence - Speaking of food....the only place topping France in food is Italy.You must visit the Duomo, Michelangelo museum, Accademia Gallery, Uffizi museum, and Palazzo Vecchio. There are dozens of eateries not to be missed, you might find yourself eating much of the time you are there! 

So which one sparks your travel interest? Where will you go first?
