Travelling in Europe 2005

Funded under: FP6-CITIZENS

Abstract

Europe: a continent with thousands of years of history, a rich cultural heritage and some of the world�s most beautiful scenery. So much for the traveller to discover and explore and all this made much easier thanks to the European Union (EU).
You can cross many borders within the EU without being checked and the euro makes it easier to shop around for bargains. You have easy access to healthcare should you need it and pets need no longer be left at home. If you drive, your driving licence and motor insurance policy issued in one EU country are valid in all the others. And you can use your mobile phone everywhere.
Travelling in Europe provides practical information for tourists travelling in the EU. You will find information on documentation, money, shopping, transport, healthcare, communications, weather, public holidays and help if things go wrong.
