Rivers – Lakes – Waterfalls


Europe’s rivers have played a big role in providing navigable transportation of goods and services throughout the centuries. This ability to provide easy transportation for trade and military movement help shape the face of the European continent. Today one can enjoy the breathtaking scenery of these rivers with their quint villages, medieval castles and lush vineyards.

As in America lakes are a wonderful palace for water recreation and relaxing. In addition to water activity some Europe’s lakes are sights of natural beauty with some being adored by castles and villas along their shorelines. The alpine lakes of Northern Italy and Switzerland are especially a desirable place for the rich and famous to reside because of their natural beauty.
