Europe Spring Trip 2011

I can't wait till spring comes! There will be another adventure coming-in at this time of the year. In fact, I already booked my spring trip last week. I am quite excited about it. Don't you know that booking for last minute hotels and flights can sometimes be of great advantage? You can really get affordable ones when you are lucky enough, like I did.

Here are some places that are included in our itinerary;

Monte Carlo, Monaco

Monaco is microstate located in South Western Europe on the northern central coast of the Mediterranean Sea. By size, it is the second smallest country in the world. It is also the world's second smallest monarchy, rulled by Prince Albert II. Monte Carlo on the other hand is one of Monaco's administrative seat. It is widely known for its casino.

Cinque Terre

It is a rugged portion of coast on the Italian Riviera. The trip itinerary also mentioned that we will be visiting the so-called "The Five Lands" of Cinque Terre named Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. All of these including the coastline and surrounding hillsides are all part of the Cinque Terre National Park and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

I can't wait to see the beautiful landscape of Cinque Terre.

San Remo

It is a very popular tourist destination in Italian Riviera. Numerous tourist attractions are open all year-round because of its special weather condition being located near Mediterranean Sea. Many boutiques and local shops are in the town centre and well-equipped sports facilities are also found in this city.

Sad to say, we cannot visit its market held on Tuesday and Saturday mornings in Piazza Eroi Sanremesi. Our visit here will be on April Monday.

Nice and Cannes

These two famous places located in French Riviera region are also included in the itinerary. Cannes is very famous for hosting the Cannes Film Festival annually.

The area of today’s Nice is believed to be among the oldest human settlements in Europe. It was given a nickname, Nice la Belle which means Nice the Beautiful. I believed Nizza or Nice is truly worthy to see.

I will for sure share images once we are done visiting these wonderful places in Europe.
