1 Venice and Lido de Jesolo - Italy

St Marc Square, Venice We have been to Venice three times now and will have to go back again. Venice stretches across 118 small islands in the marshy Venetian Lagoon along the Adriatic Sea, northeast Italy. The whole of Venice is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The saltwater lagoon stretches along the shoreline between the mouths of the Rivers Po to the south and the Piave to the north. Venice includes the whole Comune of Venezia; the historic city of Venice or Centro storico; the Mainland known as Terraferma, mostly in the large frazione of Mestre and Marghera; and other islands in the lagoon. The Lido de Jesolo is on a sans bar island in the eastern part of the island group ideal for family holidays, offering miles of good sandy beaches with sun loungers and parasols and lined by colourful hotels and campsites, many of which maintain their own stretch of sand.




2 London - England

Eros - Piccadilly Circus, London - West EndLondon boasts four World Heritage Sites: The Palace of Westminster, Westminster Abbey and St. Margaret's Church; the Tower of London; the historic settlement of Greenwich; and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. The city is a major tourist destination both for domestic and overseas visitors. We like our weekends in London but time is often lost if your planning is not too good or there are weekend works on London Underground (Tube).

3 Paris - France

Sacre Coure, Paris - FranceParis is located in the north-bending arc of the river Seine and includes two islands, the Île Saint-Louis and the larger Île de la Cité, which form the oldest part of the city. Overall, the city is relatively flat but Paris has several prominent hills, of which the highest is Montmartre, topped by the Sacre Coure which looks like the icing on the cake. So much to see, and you can't do it all in one weekend or even a week for that matter. We have been three times now and will have to go back again. Try to make three or four weekend visits, say one in each season.

4 Rhine Valley; Rüdesheim am Rhine - Germany

Rüdesheim is a town in the Rheingau-Taunus-Kreis, Hesse, Germany. It is located on the east bank of the River Rhine, at the southern entrance to the Loreley valley close to the The Loreley (Lorelei), a large rock on the eastern bank of the Rhine near St. Goarshausen, soaring about 120 meters above the Rhine Strong currents and rocks below the waterline have caused many boat accidents here. Loreley is the name of one of the beautiful 'Rhine Maidens' who lured navigators to their doom with their alluring singing, much as the ancient Greek Sirens did. In order to avoid confusion with the smaller town Rüdesheim an der Nahe, its official name is Rüdesheim am Rhine The Niederwalddenkmal in the Niederwald Landscape park, high up above town can be reached by cable car, passing over many hectares of grape vines that feed the Asbach Brandy distillery in the town. The Niederwalddenkmal is a statue of Germania overlooking the Rhine valley, which commemorates the 1871 unification of Germany under Kaiser Wilhelm I and first German Chancellor Otto von Bismarck.



5 North Antrim Coast - Northern Ireland

County Antrim is one of six counties that form Northern Ireland, situated in the north-east of the island of Ireland. The North Antrim Coast is home to the Giant's Causeway and the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. On the way to the bridge there are wonderful overlooks to take in the natural beauty of the geology, flora and fauna, which have won Carrick-a-Rede acclaim and certification as an area of special scientific interest (SSI). Half a dozen or so species of seabirds breed on the islands close to the rope bridge.




6 Edinburgh; Tour - Scotland

Edinburgh; Tour - ScotlandLocated in the south-east of Scotland, Edinburgh lies on the east coast of the Central Lothian Belt, along the Firth of Forth, near the North Sea. Owing to its rugged setting and vast collection of Medieval and Georgian architecture, including numerous stone tenements, it is often considered one of the most picturesque cities in Europe. Try to combine your visit with either the Edinburgh Arts Festival or the Edinburgh Military Tattoo.




7 Bielefeld; Teutoburger Wald - Germany

A beautiful part of Germany, the Teutoburger Wald is a northern extension of the central European uplands, extending eastward toward the Weser river, southward from the town of Osnabrück and southeastwards to Paderborn. It is divided by a broad valley, where the city of Bielefeld is located, into the two portions called Northern Teutoburg Forest and Southern Teutoburg Forest. Except for a short piece in the south of Osnabrück, which belongs to the Bundesland Lower-Saxony, the whole forest is part of North Rhine-Westphalia.




8 Kassel; Schloss Wilhelmshöhe - Germany

The Brothers Grimm lived and worked for many years in Kassel. Take a virtual tour Schloss Wilhelmshöhe is a palace near the city of Kassel in Germany. As King of Westphalia, Jérôme Bonaparte renamed it Napoleonshöhe and appointed his Head Chamberlain Heinrich von Blumenthal as its governor, with instructions to supervise extensive renovations. After the Franco-Prussian War, the Prussian King offered the defeated Emperor Napoleon III accommodation there. The buildings were substantially destroyed during the Second World War but now fully restored.

10 Dinant - Belgium

Dinant is a Walloon city and municipality located on the River Meuse in the Belgian province of Namur, Belgium. Squeezed between the River Meuse and the high rocks that overlook it, Dinant is a little town indeed. Its main features are the river, the imposing citadel high above the town and the Collegiate Church of Our Lady with its characteristic pear shaped bell tower. We have only been there once for a weekend, camping close to the town but we found the people extremely friendly, the place just left a lasting impression and we will surely return.
