Unusual Ways to Explore Europe

A bus tour is probably the most common way of exploring Europe – and any other tourist destination. Try to spice things up on your trip in Europe by doing something unusual. You may still need to get on a bus but you don’t have to be stuck in it the whole time you travel. Try these unusual ways to explore Europe.

River cruise

Now, that’s definitely something you could do off the bus. River cruising is a great way to sight-see in Europe, which is, by the way, connected through a network of rivers. There are many waterfront cities and big towns in Europe, so, river cruising certainly is a good, and maybe a tad bit unusual way to travel through the continent.



One of the advantages on having a river cruise is that you would be able to visit many countries at once in a short span of time. There are plenty of ideas for river cruises such as cruising along the Danube River, you’ll get to visit cities like Budapest, Vienna and Nuremburg in seven to eight days, and at the same time see one of the best landscape views in Europe.

River cruising is undeniably a comfortable and relaxing way to travel all over Europe. You don’t have to check in and out of hotels all the time. And you’re going to travel like you’re at home, with almost everything you need within reach.

Sightsee in a vintage car

In Paris, you can have a private tour of the city in a Citroen 2CV. Known in French as Deux Chevaux, this cute vintage car can take you anywhere in the city. It is small enough to go through traffic but big enough to take in three adult passengers. Drivers are friendly and they take you to famous spots all over Paris; they are basically the tour guides too but they approach you more personally, which makes the tour more fun and welcoming.



Visit the Catacombs of Capuchin Monks

Travelling the unusual way is not limited to transportation. Take time to tour around some unusual places in Europe – places that are not usually on the list in a conventional European holiday.

The Catacombs of the Capuchin Monks is one of these unusual places. Okay, it is not just unusual. It is quite spooky and eerie but interesting nonetheless. This historical site, which houses the remains of people that are over 500 years old, can be found in Palmera, Sicily. It is definitely not your average trip, but it is a unique way of exploring the place as these remains are part of what shapes the continent culturally and historically.
