A trip to Europe is going to blow your mind whichever way you take it, because it is a place of so many amazing cultures, history and sights to behold. If you are unsure about how to tackle the trip and what to incorporate into the experience perhaps you could go at it from a unique perspective and see how things look from that angle. Here are 3 unique ways to experience Europe.
Tour of the Street Art
With the rise in popularity and notoriety of street artists such as Bansky, street art has become more mainstream and is enjoyed by more and more people across the world, from different walks of life. Works on canvas by some street artists such as Banksy are sold for more than $40,000, demonstrating that the lines between fine art and popular art have certainly merged.
In many parts of Europe Street art has become much more than just a mode of artistic expression, it has become a form of social and political expression, and with the rise of new media, contributes to social development and change. Making the Europe experience one where you seek out the street art will be a feast for the eyes as you have the opportunity to see some of the world’s most amazing pop culture artists at their best, in the streets of some of the most beautiful cities of the world.
On a Cruise
One of the best things about ‘doing’ Europe on a Cruise is that you will see its breathtaking coastlines in ways that you may never have seen, in the regular way. Depending on which cruise you choose for your European vacation you will be able to several countries, all from the luxury of your own private viewing deck upon a luxury cruise liner.
Cruise liners make pit stops along the coast lines, so you will have the chance to go onto some of these European lands, meet local people from the different cultures and see how they live. They also have boats that go up the various rivers of the area so have a good look around so you find one that suits you. The benefit of seeing Europe in this way is that it is all included in the one holiday package, so you don’t need to spend lots of time organising everything yourself!

Make it a Roadtrip
A European road trip is a great way to really get the most out of your European holiday, especially if you have a lot of time on your hands and are travelling with another person or a group. Whether you decide to hire, or buy a car for the journey, you will have the whole of Europe at your fingertips, with the opportunity to choose whichever way you go, and make the journey personalised to your own desires.
A road trip also allows you to meet the locals and be a part of the day to day aspects of the place you are travelling which you may not manage to do if you are with a tour.
