Europe's climate is a contrast of warm and cold. The continent covers more than 4 million square miles so it's not surprising that some parts overlap with that of Asia.

Western Europe isn't just about cobbled streets and ancient ruins. This side of the continent has always been at the center of fashion, art, and music. The old city of Rome in Italy, for example, teems of historical landmarks such as The Forum Romanum. The remains stand between the Capitol, the Coliseum, and the Palatine.

There are as many ways of getting around Rome. You can travel by bus or a rented car, but the best way is by walking. The nice thing about taking the metro train in Rome, though, is that it has only two color-coded lines (red and blue). But before riding a bus and the train you should have a validated ticket. If you are caught without a validated ticket you get fined for 51.65 Euros.

On the other hand, tourists visit Ireland for many reasons, but the best of which is to go see Dublin. Dublin is a busy yet less polluted city compared with most other cities in the UK. In the suburbs you still get to see castles that have not changed over the centuries. English is spoken in Dublin, but there are still a big number of Gaelic speakers within and outside the city. One of the best universities in the world is found in Dublin-- Trinity College. It is a sight all to itself. Built by the British in 1592, Trinity College has educated the Irish elite such as Jonathan Swift, Thomas Moore, Oscar Wilde, Samuel Becket, among others, for centuries. There are rail lines and bus routes that link Dublin with the rest of Irish cities. The electric DART (Dublin Area Rapid Transit) connects the city to the suburbs.

Europe is diverse as it is similar. Western Europe was once bound by a common history so was all of Eastern Europe. This has never been truer than today with the existence of European Union (EU).
