Tulips Season in Holland

If you plan to travel to Amsterdam this year, May is the perfect month of the year because you can enjoy outstanding views and landscapes, which are not possible to see in the rest of the year. Book a cheap flight and go to Amsterdam. Although the tulip time in Holland starts in March with crocuses, the peak of this flowers festival is in the early days of May. Flights to Amsterdam make your journey a paradisiac memory – special tours from Amsterdam are organized daily for tourists, who want to stroll along the tulips park near Holland’s capital, between the towns of Haarlem in the province of Noord-Holland (North Holland) and Sassenheim, just north of Leiden. Even if you don’t have the chance to enjoy tulip time, this does not mean that you missed this great chance. All spring and summer season, flowers are in bloom. I recommend it’s better to spend at least three hours in the Keukenhof Gardens and about two hours for a bike ride.
This year, the tulip festival in Holland begins on the 5th of May and ends on the 12th day. This scent-full event welcomes its visitors with live performances. The tickets can be bought also online, and the entrance fee is € 14,50 per person for adults and 65+. If you want to come by car, then the fee for the car alone is € 6,00. An important souvenir is the Park Guide, in exchange for which you have to pay only € 4.00, but you will find out valuable infos about the park and the annual events.

No matter where you travel from, book an international flight and take advantage of some very good ticket offers and fly to Lisbon. Here, you will be completely amazed by everything! From weather, to people, cuisine and … some wow facts, such as Vasco da Gama – the longest bridge in Europe. The famous bridge is built using cables technology, linking Lisbon from the rest of the continent. It is 17,8 km long, transverses the River Tagus in Portugal, being the second crossing built across the river.

The bridge was built rather quickly, from 1995 until 1998 when it opened it gates. The central span of 420m and side spans of 203m, together with the 150 m height, make Vasco da Gama bridge in Portugal an amazing sightseeing, drawing millions of tourists every year. The consequences of building this bridge were positive for the local transportation system which became lighter and lighter. As supposed, Vasco da Gama bridge cost as much as it worths today – about €897m ($1,285m) and was financed by the private sector, where the EU contributed €319m. So you have nothing left then taking the next flight and go to Lisbon and enjoy the marvellous sightseeing from the longest bridge in Europe.
