9 Ways to Explore Europe on Foot

In case you need yet another reason to traverse the Atlantic Ocean, the Times has published several articles on the pleasures of walking through Europe.

Europe's historic landscapes provide many Americans their first opportunity to explore a city entirely on foot. A series of articles published recently in The New York Times provides intrepid pedestrians with countless ways to shake a leg, including: features on the pedestrian pleasures of AmsterdamParis, and Cannes; a family walk along the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela; walks off the beaten trail; and readers' stories of their favorite walks in Europe.

In an article, and accompanying slideshow, the paper's writers also share 9 ways to sample the continent's treasures on foot, including: a stroll through Berlin's canals, a walk across London's Millennium Bridge, and an excursion through the Promenade Plantée in Paris, the inspiration for New York City’s High Line.
