The Paseo del Arte links the three art museums that make up Madrid’s famous “golden traingle”. The golden triangle consists of consists of the Prado, Reina Sofia, and Thyssen.
While in Amsterdam, you must take a trip in a canal cruise boat. This is extremely relaxing. Or, if you need a taxi try a watertaxi. Sure, its not what you’re used to at home. On vacations you should try new things. This can be an exciting form of transportation to you, but is something that a local in Amsterdam uses as their casual transportation to and from work everyday.
What do Alentejo(Portugal), Piedmont(Italy), Norcia(Italy), Arild(Sweden), Aberdour(Scotland), Lavenham(England), and Chassignolles(France) all have in common? They all have beautiful spots to go sight-seeing, great food, and shopping, all with a cheap price tag! All of these countries have markets that open early in the morning.

To save money, have your big meal at mid day. In countries like Spain, the restaurants offer full three course meals. These meals are a set price at lunch time, which generally costs less than 10 Euros, and often comes with wine, beer, or coffee. Also, atleast once a week, most towns in Europe have a traveling market. Even if you can’t cook at your hotel, these markets include things like cured meats, olives, cheeses, roast chicken and pork, and bread, which is just enough food for a great picnic. Those are two huge ways that you can save a great deal of money on food.
