Summary

Summary

First time to Europe? It's our 57th. There isn't a hostel in Hungary we haven't tested, a beer in Brussels we haven't imbibed, or a metro line in Madrid we haven't mastered. After going through the ups and downs, we know the ins and outs. Part local expert, part goofy travel companion, Let's Go Europe lays down some Continental #realtalk: the secret ways to avoid lines at the Louvre; the truly undiscovered (read: not Dubrovnik) gems of the Croatian coast; and yes, you do have spanakopita stuck in your teeth.

Excerpts

Excerpts

INTRODUCTION Conquering the great continent of Europe is no easy task. Many have tried--from Julius Caesar to Napoleon--and all have failed. That's why you've come to us. We've been criss-crossing the continent for 57 years, smelling out the sightliest sights and the homiest hostels, and now, dear reader, we will pass on all of our knowledge to you. Let's get this show on the road with the travel coverage chapters--the meat of any Let's Go book. We'll start off with Austria, where you can embark on your own Alpine adventure, a la The Sound of Music. From there, we trek on over to feast on frites in Belgium, enjoy Adriatic views in Croatia, and take in the old-world magic of the Czech Republic. Get a little closer to The Little Mermaid and its author, Hans Christian Anderson, in Denmark. Trek to France to explore fine art and finer dining, and meet Beethoven and Berliners in Germany. We cross the Channel to get our fill of Beefeaters and double-decker buses in Britain, make a pit stop at the Parthenon in Greece, and head north to Hungary's thermal baths before returning to the Emerald Isle to drink Guinness over Joyce. Get the lowdown on Italy's artistic treasures. Learn how to navigate canals in the Netherlands. Become a viking (well, at least try to) in Norway. Give props to pierogies in Poland. We'll show you where to find Portugal's finest port and take a cruise on Slovenia's Lake Bled. Then, complete your grand tour on the sun-drenched beaches of Spain and the Baltic coast of Sweden.
