Euro Trip – European School Cultural & Ski Trip
There’s no better time than euro trip time, especially if all your school friends are going to be there too! The snow-covered Alps, the Eiffel Tower, the Coliseum, pasta, pizza, crepes, schnitzel and the list, goes on and on, so are you excited yet?! Europe has so much to offer regarding history, culture and the most important, lots and lots of snow. There are hundreds of resorts dotted all over Europe, and some of them only a few kilometres apart.
The European hot sports for skiing are Italy, Germany, Austria and France. These countries are the likely choices for a school ski and cultural trip. In these countries the mountains are high, the snow is fresh, and the runs go on and on. So here are the top resorts, hot tips, must-see sights and items that you must pack. Ready, set, ski!

There are a few hot tips that we have for your euro trip, so here goes. Of course, you have to have a margarita pizza, a pasta Napolitano and a gelato in Italy. The best Italian souvenir you can get is a carnival mask or a picture of the leaning tower of Pisa. In Germany, you have to have a Goulash with some sauerkraut and the perfect souvenir to take away is a beer glass. In Austria, you have to try the Vienna Schnitzel and take away a cuckoo clock. And in France, you have to have some crepes and take home a little Eifel Tower.
There are so many things to see and do in Europe. In Italy, you must see the Colosseum, Venice, the Fountain de Trevi, the leaning tower of Pisa and the pantheon. In Germany take photos in front of the Berlin wall, at Neuschwanstein Castle and old town Rothenburg. In Austria stroll around the Belvedere Palace, Hochosterwitz Castle and Mirabell Palace. In France venture to the Eifel Tower, the Arc De Triumph and walk down the Champs-Elysees.
