One of the best parts of taking a walking tour…
In large European cities is the fact that so much of their historical architecture and culture still exists. Unlike some American cities, several European states prefer to hold onto their history, which gives tourists a unique opportunity to explore cities and spaces as they existed centuries ago. Here are a few places to explore up-close and personal.
There are a number of structured walking tours available to travelers, depending on what you would like to see in the City of Lights. Some of the more popular tours include a Paris Food Tour, the Paris Night Tour and Notre Dame and the Heart of Paris Tour. Each of these walking tours focuses on a different aspect of the city and culture, offering a unique view and experience. The tours vary in time, averaging 1.5 hours, and are designed to give tourists the optimal cultural experience of the city.
From the domed protestant church Berliner Dom to the Brandenburg Gate, there is an array of architecture to experience in Berlin. Because of its unique role in world history, Berlin has a variety of historically based tours available. Guided walking tours range from Jewish Heritage Tours to spots that were significant in the final days of the World War II. In addition, there are several free architectural and cultural tours that allow you to walk in the footsteps of some of the most significant locations of world history. Most of the tours run 3-4 hours in duration and include numerous destinations.
There are so many different walking tours available in Rome that you may need to narrow down the scope of that which you wish to explore prior to heading out. Rome by Night, Rome by Day, Ancient Rome, Christian Rome, Pagan Rome, The Fountains of Rome, Vatican museums, Rome of the Popes–the list goes on. One interesting aspect when touring Rome is that so much of the modern city was built up around the ruins. It is somewhat surreal that you can grab a cup of gelato at a local Gelateria and sit at the steps of the Coliseum to eat it.
Put on your favorite walking shoes and grab a bottle of water to keep yourself hydrated while you head out to explore all that Europe has to offer.
