If you’re looking for an adventure in Europe, there’s no better place to start than a day trip to one of its historic walled towns. These cities offer something for everyone: beautiful architecture, fascinating history, good food and drink—not to mention some of them even have ghosts!
Here’s how to spend a perfect day in any old European city…
Wake Up with the Birds and Stroll Peacefully through the Peaceful Streets
Right around 7 am, you should wake up and make your way to one of the central squares. It doesn’t matter whether you’re in a town or city, there’s always at least one and it’s usually surrounded by some of the first buildings in the area.
See if a Local Market sells Fresh Fruit, Bread, and Flowers
If you’re visiting a European-walled town, take some time to explore the local market. Markets in these towns are usually small enough to be easily walked through in a few minutes but big enough to offer everything from fresh fruit and bread to flowers.
Your visit will not only allow you to get a taste of how people live in this area but also allow you to stock up on snacks for later!
Find a Nice Lunch Cafe Serving Local Food You’ve never had Before
After you’ve gotten your bearings and taken in the sights, head to a cafe. Try something new! Order something you’re unfamiliar with or haven’t had before. The best way to learn about another country’s cuisine is by tasting it.
If there is anything that you are unsure of ordering, ask your server (or, even better: someone who lives in town). They can tell you what dishes are local specialties and which establishments serve them best.
Don’t be afraid to try new things; the worst thing that could happen is that it doesn’t taste good! And remember: this isn’t just about food—it’s also an opportunity to learn about other cultures and ways of life worldwide!
Wander around the Shops to Buy Souvenirs and Gifts for Your Friends back Home
When you’re in a European walled town, there’s no better way to celebrate the beauty of your surroundings than by purchasing souvenirs and gifts for your friends back home.
While it’s true that many tourists come here specifically with this goal, you’ll still find plenty of shops selling local products—including those beautiful handmade scarves and elegant handmade earrings you’ve been eyeing all day!
Have Dinner at an Authentic Local Restaurant Serving Traditional Cuisine and Wine
After exploring the town, you’re likely to be famished. Pick a restaurant that offers traditional cuisine and wine. You may consider ordering from the menu or speaking with your server about their recommendations. Food allergies and preferences are common reasons for asking for recommendations, so your server should be able to help you find something suitable for your needs.
If you’re looking for an adventure, then a European walled town is a perfect choice. They offer something for everyone: history, culture, food and wine. Whether you’re on a weekend getaway or just taking some time off from work, these cities provide plenty of fun things to do and see.
