The question as to whether or not Americans should Travel to Europe is more than a little dented by the economic situation in Europe. With unemployment at an all-time high and many European countries struggling with bankruptcy, there are fewer tourists visiting these countries.

For the traveler looking to experience new cultures, meet new friends and explore the open road, there is no better place. Here’s some advice on how Americans can travel to Europe without getting bored.
As travelers, it’s important for us to be ready for whatever Mother Nature can throw at us. And while we are preparing for the next destination, it’s also smart for us to do a bit of travel planning in advance. In the case of traveling to Europe, that means learning about the various vaccines needed by travelers to prevent catching deadly diseases like measles, rabies, hepatitis B. In Europe, a recent outbreak of a highly contagious strain of flu caused an enormous scare among travelers.
One of the top destinations for travelers this year is Italy. With beautiful beaches, medieval villages and museums, as well as an energetic nightlife, Italy is an appealing choice for travelers interested in culture and history. Traveling to Italy requires planning ahead. For instance, greece is an extremely popular destination for travelers coming from Northern America because of its rich culture and history. But unless you already know someone already living in Greece, scheduling an early flight to northern California just to be on the safe side is wise.
Germany and Switzerland also join the top list of places to visit this summer. Germany and Switzerland offer visitors spectacular sights along the Rhine River that is just 2 hours away from the city of Munich. Travel to Germany and experience the spectacular beauty that is associated with the Ruhstallbahn, one of the largest bridges in Europe.

One of the most popular activities for travelers is cycling. Cycling is easy to do, affordable and allows you to see some of the more beautiful sites of Europe.

As discussed at the beginning of the article, there are many exciting activities for international travelers that can be done while in Europe. However, some of the more stringent measures that are put in place by the European Union, are aimed at preventing illegal activity such as drug trafficking, human smuggling and the smuggling of weapons. In order to avoid detection, the EU has put in place tougher entry requirements for non-EU citizens wishing to visit Portugal or stay in the country long enough to apply for citizenship.
