When a person decides to travel someplace, they usually know exactly where they’re going to visit. And unless that person is a backpacking world traveler, they usually don’t say, “I’m going to travel the entire United States (or Asia, South America, etc).” However, when it comes to travelling to Europe, things are a little bit different. Europe is a smaller continent with a lot of access to high-speed transit. Because of this, it is not impossible for someone to say that they want to travel across Europe—actually, that is a very common feat for tourists. Many travel packages to Europe and even school field trips to Europe have a widespread itinerary of sights to see and places to travel spanning multiple countries. It is harder to do that someplace like the United Sates because of the lack of intercontinental high-speed travel. So, if you are making the decision to head out to Europe, what places should you mark on your map? Let’s find out.

Rome, Italy is one of the most well known cities in the world. It is a city of extensive history and mythological significance and is the capital of Italy itself.
