Europe is one of the most popular places on earth in which to vacation, for a multitude of reasons - not least is the sheer number of world-famous attractions you can see. In fact, the list of truly amazing sights in Europe is such that Europeans travel throughout the region playing tourist in their own backyard -- it's not just foreigners standing agape in front of monuments.
