With the tough economy and unstable exchange rates, going for a holiday in Europe does not come cheap. If you are on a tight budget, every discount or freebie is a big help to stretch you travel money. Here are some of the best things to do in Europe for free:

Watch the sunset at Pliazzale Michelangelo in Florence, Italy

The Piazzale Michelangelo is just a few minutes away from the city center of Florence. The place provides a spectacular view that can be considered as one of the best in Italy. You will also see here one of the fake David’s in Florence. It is great to see this place during the day but it is a different experience when you get there before sunset and watch the sun go down the horizon.

Listen to the choir of Westminster Abbey in London

Some people go to a restaurant because the food tastes terrific, but if you’ve been watching any of those design makeover reality shows on TV, you’ll know that it’s more than just the cuisine. You have to set up the mood too if you want your customers to keep on coming back. These restaurants take it to the extreme.

Most of them are so interesting, they’re bordering on strange. If you’re a big fan of both good architecture and good food, these restaurants are definitely a must-see.
