Our Wonderful Experiences During The 15 Days In Europe
Ranging from some impeccable experiences to some of the best places to visit in Europe for 15 days, this vacation was a lot more than we had anticipated. Take a look at these few of many amazing experiences that we encountered on our escape to the land of romance.
1. Rhine Falls: Witnessed Europe’s Biggest Waterfall
Located in between the cantons of Zurich and Schaffhausen, Rhine Falls is the biggest waterfall in the whole of Europe and to stand high above these waterfalls is an unmatchable experience. Angry water hitting the mighty rocks, sounds of the falls gushing, and the picturesque views of this magical waterfall were enough to make us contemplate how beautiful life truly is. Moreover, the path to these falls was nothing less than enchanting. The stunning vineyards silently rolling by and the quaint farming villages reeking of the charm made us wish to stay in the moment for as long as we can.
2. Sorrento: Embraced The Charm
Sorrento, the tiny, little town of Italy gave us an opportunity to witness something that literally rose our hair on our arms. The land of lemons, mighty cliffs, and the gorgeous architecture of this destination made us so thankful that we had Sorrento in our Europe itinerary for 15 days from India. The gateway to the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento is paradisiacal that oozes of beauty and mystical vibes. Tourism being the main source of income for this village in Italy, Sorrento is also home to some of the most enchanting and lavish hotels and resorts that would make one be at their utmost comfort at all the time.
3. Zermatt: Soaked In The Beauty Of Mountain Village
Sitting in the land of the best chocolate makers, Zermatt is a small mountain village of Switzerland that is surrounded by some of the most magnificent and eye-catching snow-clad mountains, making it look like a winter fairyland with lush green lands in summers! Lounging in the heart of Switzerland, Zermatt blankets some views that one has never witnessed and can never put in words. Playing around in the snow was definitely one of our favorite experiences to be a part of during our 15 days in Europe.
Here is a list of Europe travel tips that one should certainly keep in mind when planning any sort of vacation to the continent. It helped us, it might help you too!

Our Experience With TravelTriangle
Our experience with TravelTriangle was superb and we highly recommend it. Although I subscribed to Travel Triangle by confidence, it turned out to be the best decision ever taken. We were always a bit skeptical to deal with local agents and were unsure about trusting an unknown agent but it was one of the best experiences of our lives once we got over our doubts. The agent was extremely convincing and our whole trip was butter-smooth and went in a hassle-free manner. I would definitely choose TravelTriangle for our next escapade as well!
