    Explore the castles of Europe

    Europe is a wonderful playground for any tourist! Famous for its beaches, lively resorts, traditional towns and excellent shopping.

    Of course there is more too Europe than just lazing in the summer's sun or skiing down the snowy slopes. Europe is steeped in fascinating history, with the stories of past told by beautiful buildings and magical castles!

    First stop on our historic tour of Europe is France. A country once torn apart by war, France now has cosmopolitan resorts and one of the most visited cities in the world, Paris. However our tour takes us to Carcassonne, a whole city that is a castle. You can pick up a car hire at Carcassonne Airport and begin your tour of this medieval city. The old part of the city is enclosed in a medieval fortress, so you could say that the entire city is a monument! You must visit the museum in which you can learn all about this historic city's past.

    Next we are over to Germany. This cultural and picturesque country has many hidden treasures just waiting to be discovered. Hire a car in Munich and travel through the fairy tale Bavarian countryside. One of the most visited places in Germany is found in Bavaria; Neuschwanstein Castle. Perched high upon a rugged hilltop this Gothic Revival palace was the inspiration of the Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty Castle. If you venture here in the colder months you may feel like you have stepped into a winter wonderland. The Alpine houses have snow topped roofs on the outside and wood fires burning on the inside. Of course you must try the local brew; it's the only way to keep warm on those winter chilly nights!

    Last stop on our quick trip around Europe is Italy, the land of fine cuisine and sharp dress style! Start your journey through the stunning landscape of Italy with a Rome car hire. You could spend more time in Rome than any other European city due its large number of fantastic tourist attractions. To name but a few, there is the Colosseum amphitheatre, the Baths of Caracalla, the Roman Forum and the Trajan's Market! However our must see is the Castel Sant'Angelo. This enormous round in shape castle is now a museum. You can wander the castle corridors admiring the amazing architecture whilst learning all about the castles former life as a mausoleum for the Roman Emperor Hadrian and then a fortress.With Europe just on our doorstep why wouldn't we go and explore the beauty and mystery it holds!
