Three Holiday Travel Ideas for Everyone
Most of us have a bug inside our heads that keeps itching for elsewhere. Whether we are 9 or 90, affects all of us. A lot of us can go anywhere we please; most places are out of bounds for many. Rough terrain, bad weather, cultural barriers, political unrest or it is simply too adult for the kids. So let us look at these three destinations that welcome all. Whether you are a solo traveler, or a family soul that just wants to take the kids out to an exciting place or maybe you are planning a trip with your best friend or looking for some holiday ideas for older people to engage your elderly parents. There is something for all.
Probably the most notable city in the world for its rich cultural past, Paris; a daughter of the river Seine offers its treasures to anyone who treads on her streets and is on almost everyone’s bucket list. You can plan your stay in the city according to the many attractions it has to offer. An entire day at some of these places like, the Musee de Louvre and the Chateau de Versailles are worth it. These locations are best kept separate for individual days as they require a lot of attention. Other places like Cimetiere du Pere-Lachaise, Luxembourg gardens and Palais Garnier can be clubbed together. Be sure to keep a day for a lovely stroll on the Parisian streets and café hopping.
This beach side location provides both stimulation and relaxation. One of its most breathtaking attractions is the Stairway to Heaven hike. Although illegal, this stairway still receives some footfall and is ideal for an adventurous date. The stairway leads to a hill top with a bunker and small satellite. It is a beautiful place to watch the sunrise. If illegal adventures is not one of your guilty pleasures then you can go a hike at the island of Chinaman’s hat which is just a short swim away (kayaks are also available). Feeling particularly lazy? Not keen on adventures? Then beach is a handsome place to just sit back and enjoy a nice cool drink.
The capital city of Tuscany, perhaps the most beautiful province of Italy is a Renaissance masterpiece and a lively city at the same time. It is the home to a number of 14th-17th century masterpieces including Botticelli’s ‘Birth of Venus’ (on display at the Uffizi), Il Duomo di Firenze, Giotto’s Campanile and of course, Michelangelo’s David. The city hasn’t changed much in its essence in the last 500 years or so and the old buildings are fabulously maintained. Be sure to have a sound plan as most of these places will have a lot of people waiting to get in, but it is worth the wait. It is a good idea to get acquainted with the grandeur of the city from the Piazzale Michelangelo which offers a panoramic view of the city and it is, well, hard to beat.
