Imagine yourself walking along cities that were built two thousand years ago. Ancient ruins are seen in the distance while you are sitting at a cafe with a bottle on wine, a bowl of olives on the table, with a plate of freshly baked bread and cheeses in front of you. From the wine tasting regions of France, Spain, and Italy, to the architecture of Belgium of Germany, you can immerse yourself in the Old World.
You can stand at Stonehenge in England and wonder at the purpose of the ancient site. You can take in the view of Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower. You can take a river cruise down the Rhine, the Danube, or the locks in Amsterdam. Or take language courses on the coast of Portugal or Spain or France. The best month for weather for outdoor adventures is September, but the museums and art galleries are pleasant year round.
