I see London I see France - Europe's Hot Spots at a Glance

Art. History. Culture. Cuisine. With all that it has to offer, Europe is definitely one of the most fascinating places one must visit in a lifetime. However, with so many attractions, planning a vacation to Europe can become overwhelming and you may feel as though you don't know where to begin. That is why we have narrowed down a list of the main attractions you can put on top of your must-see-in-Europe list.
Constructed nearly 5,000 years ago, this engineering feat has sparked numerous theories sepculating its construction, creators and meaning. This mysterious site was added to UNESCO's list of World Heritage sites in 1986 and continues to amaze hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. While its original purpose remains uncertain, there is no doubt that Stonehenge should be on the top of your list.

Orginally established as a spa resort by the Romans in AD 43, the city of Bath is a breathtakingly beautiful town adorned with elegant townhouses and a number of architectural wonders. Pictured above is one of the world's finest and best-preserved Roman Spas. Experience the stunning complex of bathhouses situated atop natural springs on our Great Britain Vacation! (Tour Code: RUK)

With scenery that rivals Tuscany's sweeping hills and the French Alps, it's easy to see why 19th century writers called the Lake District their poetic muse. Witness the breathtaking panoramas of jagged mountains, wooded valleys and some of England's largest and most spectacular lakes as we stroll the area on day 6 of our Great Britain Vacation.

Serving as the Royal Family's London residence since 1837, the Buckingham Palace is a sight to be seen. The extravagant Palace serves as an ideal backdrop for any picture and is just one of the many places we will visit on day 3 of our Great Britain Vacation.

Described by Ernest Hemingway as a "moveable feast", this romantic city leaves an indelible mark on the soul of each visitor. Embark on a scenic drive on day 5 of our Europe Delight package in which you will have the opportunity to witness the Eiffel Tower, Opera House, Place de La concord, Champs Elysee and Arc de Triomphe.

Already experienced the gondola ride at the Venetian, Las Vegas? Well, we assure you that although they did do a remarkable job of replicating the scenery, nothing compares to a gondola ride along the Grand Canal. Offering unforgettable views of the parades of palazzos, which date from the 12th-18th century, the experience will be a ride of a lifetime.  Visit this incredible city on our Italy tour.

Venture to the world famous Louvre Museum, home to a staggering collection of art, including the Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo on our Europe vacation.

An architectural project gone awry, the Leaning Tower of Pisa is one of the most remarkable pieces of work and Italy's most famous landmark. Both our Europe Delight and Italy Essence packages will escort you to the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

The "Eternal City" of Rome has been known for centuries as the capital of the world, housing an evolving blend of timeless monuments, ruins and ancient culture. No trip to Rome would be complete without a visit to the Colosseum, the iconic symbol of the city.

And last but not least, toss a coin into the legendary Trevi Fountain to ensure your return to this magical city.
