As a traveler from the United States, there’s one thing that always stands out when I'm in Europe: history.
Walk around in Paris, Rome, or Madrid, and you’re bound to see structures that were built well before the signing of the Declaration of Independence. In cities all over the continent, examples of Romanesque, Gothic, and Renaissance architecture have been beautifully preserved — and not just churches and public monuments.
Next time you hop over the Atlantic, consider a stay in one of the continent's many historic homes — from ornate castles to cozy apartments — that have been lovingly restored and maintained by their owners for future generations.
