Activities&attractions don't miss during the travel tour to Europe
The Trevi Fountain is a fountain in the Trevi district in Rome,designed by Italian architect Nicola Salvi and completed by Pietro Bracci.Standing 26.3 metres(86 ft)high and 49.15 metres(161.3 ft)wide,it is the largest Baroque fountain in the city and one of the most famous fountains in the world.
Old Bridge is a medieval stone closed-spandrel segmental arch bridge over the Arno River,in Florence,Italy,noted for still having shops built along it,as was once common.Butchers initially occupied the shops;the present tenants are jewelers,art dealers and souvenir sellers.The Ponte Vecchio's two neighbouring bridges are the Ponte Santa Trinita and the Ponte alle Grazie.
The Leaning Tower of Pisa
The world-famous tower built during the Middle Ages is a testament to both human ingenuity and fallibility.The tower tilted because the soil on one side was softer than on the other,and it could not support the tower's weight.
Arc de Triomphe
The Arc de Triomphe is one of the most famous monuments in Paris,standing at the western end of the Champs-Élysées at the center of Place Charles de Gaulle,formerly named Place de l'Étoile—theétoile or"star"of the juncture formed by its twelve radiating avenues.The Arc de Triomphe should not be confused with a smaller arch,the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel,which stands west of the Louvre.The Arc de Triomphe honours those who fought and died for France in the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars,with the names of all French victories and generals inscribed on its inner and outer surfaces.Beneath its vault lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I.
Place de la Concorde
The largest square in Paris is the Place de la Concorde.On it sit many major Parisian tourist spots,such as Champs-Élysées,the Luxor Obelisk,the Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume and the Musée de l'Orangerie.
