Joshua Lundberg was recently invited to participate in a program that allowed him to spend the summer working in Europe. During this time, Joshua Lundberg was able to work with impoverished youth throughout the area in order to provide training and help these young people work towards getting out of poverty.
Although Joshua Lundberg primarily spent his time in Europe performing charity work, he also took some time to explore some of the great cities of Europe. For those who are planning a trip to Europe, Joshua Lundberg recommends including the following destinations on your itinerary.
No tour of Europe can be complete without a stop in Paris. Joshua Lundberg only paid a brief visit to the beautiful city, but he was fascinated by the stunning architecture, unique culture, and rich history of the place. When you visit Paris, Joshua Lundberg recommends taking time to simply wander down the streets. Clearly, it’s important to visit the major museums, such as the Louvre and the Musée D’Orsay. However, a stroll through the Marais or the Latin Quarter can lead you to one-of-a-kind shops and charming cafés that allow you to gain a better glimpse into the lives of real Parisians.
As you explore Italy, take a few days to enjoy the art and beauty of Florence. Joshua Lundberg enjoyed touring the Duomo and climbing the bell tower to gain a stunning view of the surrounding countryside. Joshua Lundberg highly recommends visiting the Uffizi to marvel at some of Europe’s greatest artwork.
4. The Swiss Alps
There are a wide variety of options for exploring the Swiss Alps. In order to enjoy some small town charm, Joshua Lundberg recommends staying in Murren in order to have easy access to the Schilthorn as well as the Jungfraujoch. Both of these high points provide incredible views of the surrounding mountains. In addition, Joshua Lundberg found that Murren was a good home base for those who are interested in hiking in the area.
Barcelona offers European tourists a completely different experience of a European city. Joshua Lundberg was interested to see the Sagrada Familia, Barcelona’s famous and incomplete cathedral. Although it is still under construction, Joshua Lundberg recommends taking a tour of the cathedral in order to get a glimpse of the process of creating a masterpiece. The architect, Antonio Gaudi, also designed several other remarkable buildings in the city. Joshua Lundberg suggests taking a tour of at least one of these houses.
