We made a selection of several must-visit locations in Europe for our readers.
Cap Ferrat in the South of France
Villas for rent in Cap Ferrat are in a very high demand for a reason. There are lots of places for wandering along the rocky coasts of the Mediterranean Sea, the tiny lanes of historic towns breathing history, and around – a blossoming sea of oleanders, bougainvilleas, Mediterranean, tart-smelling flora, and coniferous residents of the coast…
When you enter the property of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, expect to feel like a true French aristocrat who came to the Riviera to experience life!
Some grumble about the odor of muck, others about the hordes of tourists and the trash they leave behind, and yet others about the high pricing. But all of this is worth it to visit a very unique and romantic city.
Yes, it does have faults. But coming here for at least a day to ride a gondola down the canals (and if you’re lucky, listen to music performed by gondoliers), wander through the small cobblestone streets, and see the famed Piazza San Marco is still worthwhile. You won’t require any more time, so you may securely continue your travel through Italy.
Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany
If not in person, practically everyone had seen him on postcards or pictures. King Ludwig II ordered the construction of Neuschwanstein from 1869 to 1886, incurring massive sums to create a fairy-tale castle that he resided in for less than six months.
It’s strange that a spot meant for isolation became the property of hundreds of thousands of people: seven weeks after the king’s death, it was opened to tourists.
The castle features around 100 rooms painted with scenes from Wagner’s works and urban folklore. The throne chamber is notable for its abundance of ornamentation and elegance. From the observation deck, visitors can overlook the Alps, lakes, adjacent villages, and the nearby more humble Hohenschwangau castle, where Ludwig II spent his boyhood.
