Explore European cities: Dublin, Lyon, and Seville
There is no question that Europe is rich in culture, history and fun. Get out of your comfort zone and venture beyond your community. Why not head to one of these amazing cities?
Everything you can experience in Dublin represents the best of what can be explored in Ireland. From enjoying the beautiful view at Balcarrick Beach, to grabbing a pint at one of the many pubs in Temple Bar, many wishes can be granted in this fair city. On a rainy day, venture through the National Museum of Natural History or discover a lost Irish relative in the National Library. Looking for something out of the ordinary? Try the indoor Ski Centre or enjoy one of Europe’s largest indoor water parks, the National Aquatic Centre. End the day by dancing a jig at the Merry Ploughboy.
Tracing back more than 2,000 years throughout the city, it is easy to capture the history Lyon has woven into present day. Rich and true to its Roman roots, many sites are still used for events today. See performances at the ancient Théâtres Romains de Fourvière and under the glass dome of Opéra de Lyon. Walk the Slopes of Croix-Rousse, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Explore the Traboules secret passageways, or savor a meal in a city that boasts famous chef Paul Bocuse. In Lyon, every palate and budget can be accommodated.
Once a flourishing port for trade to the Americas, Seville stands as a unique city, rich in Moorish culture. Nestled along the Guadalquivir River, the streets are still lively. Many blended traditions are evident between the Royal Alcázar Palace and the General Archive of the Indies, both UNESCO World Heritage destinations. Take a stroll through the Santa Cruz neighborhood to see the Gothic Seville Cathedral and the Casa de Pilatos. Find gifts in Triana, and after shopping rejuvenate with tapas and Manzanilla sherry in La Macarena. You’ll find whatever flavor of Spain you crave in Seville.
