I loved London, as there is so much to see and do! The London Eye is a must see, which was built for the millennium, other sites to see would be Westminster Abbey, with the famous Tower of Big Ben, take a cruise on the Thames River, London Bridge, Buckingham Palace to watch the changing of the guards, Jack the Ripper tour, and many more. For you shoppers, Harrods's Department Store dating back to 1849 & Oxford Street. London has great neighborhoods to stroll thru, such as Shoreditch, Soho..
There are several day trips from London to Bath, Stonehenge and if you are a Harry Potter Fan, this exhibit is a must see!
It's about an hour outside of London, and there are tours with transportation and tickets available, but you have to book early and this exhibit is very popular.

There are endless things to do in Berlin, and a city that will leave endless impressions on you. Berlin holds many stories of East, and West Berlin, and many stories of the former tragedies.
The Brandenburg Gate is a monument that has stood through the city's history since the 18th century. The Brandenburg
Gate is a symbol that separated East from West Berlin. It's the most significant landmark in the city, next to what is left of the Berlin Wall. The Holocaust Memorial is a dedicated memorial to the murdered Jews in Berlin. You can also have your picture taken at the famous "Check point Charlie". There are very few buildings left in Berlin from the war, so be sure to visit them all if you can. For you foodies, Berlin has some of the best German food and they are famous for currywurst, it's delish!! If you are looking for a day trip outside of Berlin, you can take a train or have a guide take you to Potsdam. Sites to visit would be the Sanssouci Palace, which was built for the German Kings & Queens. Also you should visit Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial. Once you are done visiting the sites, Potsdam itself is a lovely city to take some time to stroll thru, do a little shopping and have lunch.
Berlin has many, many museums to visit on museum island, Reichstag the place where Parliament sits.

Paris is a beautiful city, with so much to see and do & one of my favorite cites in Europe! The city of Paris is comprised of 19 arrondissements or neighborhoods, each unique and different. It's fun to stroll thru the different neighborhoods, stop at a French cafe & people watch. For sightseeing the most famous sites would be the Eiffel Tower, The Louvre, the Champs Elysees , Arc of Triumph & Notre Dame, however Notre Dame is currently closed due to a fire.
The Sacre Couer Basilica in Montmarte, sits at the top of Butte Montmarte, with spectacular views of all of Paris.
This also where the local artists can be found, and you may even go home with a painted portrait or a caricature of yourself.
There also many day trips that can be taken by train from Paris, such as Dijon, Normandy, Champagne region, and many more! Paris is a great food/wine destination!

Prague is the capitol of the Czech Republic and is called "Praha" in the Czech Republic. Prague is famous for their Old Town Square, Gothic Churches, and a must see is the Astronomical clock, dates from 1402 which gives an animated show hourly. Another must see is the Charles Bridge, and is lined with statues of Catholic Saints.
Prague is a great walking city.
For you shoppers, there is great shopping in/around the Old Town Square.

Greece has so much to offer, from the historic Acropolis in Athens, to the multitude of Islands.

Beautiful beaches, local wines and the freshest food, seafood just pulled out of the ocean to your plate!

The people in Greece are so welcoming, and there is no language barrier here. I loved traveling between the islands via the ferry service offered.
