In the very near future, I will be visiting Europe with EF College Break — specifically London, Paris and Rome.
I’m way too excited about this upcoming trip to think about anything else right now, especially since I received my flight and hotel information today.
I want to ask if any of you readers out there know of any places I should visit in those cities, especially anything that has a historical link to Nola. I am definitely going to all the obvious attractions: the Louvre, Eiffel Tower, London Eye, Coloseo, etc. EF gave me a few unique suggestions which I will list below by city, let me know if they left anything awesome out!
First off, I have been to Rome and seen almost every normal attraction there — I lived there for two months. EF suggested Campo de’Fiori which I will definitely be hitting for the fruit market and clubbing, shopping on Via Del Corso, and other shopping areas which unfortunately I don’t have the money for. I already bought tickets to the Galleria Borghese because it’s my favorite. Know of anything local or off the beaten path?
I’ve never been to Paris or London and I hope to visit places in Paris that will teach me more about the history of Louisiana’s parent: France. EF suggests these attractions: Moulin Rouge (definitely going! any help on how to get tickets?), Champs-Elysees and the Arc de Triomphe. I feel like there are a lot of little places I have heard about that I now can’t think of — please help with places to go!
I’m not sure if London ever had much of a connection with Nola, but I did find out that the Saints have played in the U.K. and that Nola jazz musicians traveled to London for a concert last year. Tell me if you know of any other connections. EF suggested: Harrods and Soho. I am also taking an excursion to Stonehenge and Bath.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
