Europe is regarded as the world's favourite tourist destination. The development of Europe leaves most other continents far behind. Be it her cities with world class infrastructure, a rich heritage including splendid monuments of renaissance period, the beauty of her landscape, unique culture or the pleasant climate, tourists from every part of the globe visit Europe in large numbers to have a glimpse of the myriad of tourist attractions. In fact, every country of Europe is regarded as a paradise for tourists. What gives tourism in Europe a great boost is the absence of visa restrictions within most part of the continent after the coming of European Union. Europe has also taken care of the fact that its countryside is not blighted and beaches do not get polluted due to the continuous inflow of tourists. The state-of -the-art tourism infrastructure of the continent ensures a comfortable and memorable stay for tourists.
