Modern means of transportation let you to travel between different European regions or countries in the shortest time possible: domestic airlines and low-cost companies offer a variety of connections at highly competitive prices.
Railways are another fast, ecological option when travelling between European countries: the TGV in France, the ICE en Germany, the AVE in Spain, the Eurostar between Belgium and France to the United Kingdom with the famous tunnel underneath the English Channel, as well as the Thalys train, which operates in France, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands.
Six major European railway companies (from Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands) set up a partnership in 2006, known as Rail Team. The objective of this alliance is to become an alternative to airline alliances for passenger transportation.
In addition, Europe is devoting considerable time and resources to ecology: railway transportation has increased everywhere, as seen above, but other operations have also been launched in several countries. For instance, if you would like to visit cities while riding a bicycle, you may well be able to: more and more major cities are renting bicycles for hours or days, sometimes even on a “help-yourself” basis. Modernised tramways are also becoming increasingly popular in places that had stopped using them in the 60s/70s, so the appearance of these cities is being nicely modified.
When visiting Europe today, thanks to New Technologies, you can rely on several mobile solutions, such as GPS devices, and smart phones. A large number of tourist areas are equipped with multilingual audio-guides, so you can enjoy your visits to historical or cultural sites without missing a detail.
European hotels, found traditional by some and modern by others, are following the same trend: today, many of them offer an internet connection in every room or wifi access in the whole hotel. In many major cities, wifi access is provided in the city-centre itself, near their most visited districts.
