1 Venice and Lido de Jesolo - Italy
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
London 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
Paris 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
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
9 Lego Land and Tour - Denmark
Billund, the original Legoland park, opened in 1968 in Billund, Denmark. It has
many visitors and is next to the original Lego factory.
The Dragon is their oldest coaster, and miniland is a symbolic representation
of the country.

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.

spellings, but where this happens there is either no definitive spelling translation
of these words or the place is known by different names by different peoples.
