I have set myself a major task in picking the 31 things to do in Europe before you die. 31 doesn’t even allow for one item per country, but I have thought about each one and whittled them down as best I can. From incredible landscapes to culture packed cities, historical attractions to modern wonders, adventures and gentle pursuits, here are 31 things to do in Europe before you die.
1. Take a Trip on the London Eye in England
It seems only logical to choose the first of my things to do in Europe before you die from my own country. London is a fabulous place to visit and a trip on the Eye on the South Bank provides the best views of the city. On a clear day you can see for miles across the capital, taking in the River Thames, the iconic historical landmarks of Big Ben, St. Paul's, and Westminster Abbey, as well as modern features like the Gherkin, Canary Wharf and the Shard. The Shard, the UK’s tallest building, also offers fabulous 360 degree views but of course, not of itself.
