    Impressive can be a subjective quality, what sort of thing impresses you? I like older buildings and other structures that may also have interesting features in their design or purpose. Of course in that respect I can’t really say that I have a favorite, either. When I think of Ireland, I remember seeing countless castles everywhere that I went. Some in disrepair, some in total ruin while others are in various states of restoration for public viewing, hotels and private residences. On another front, I am amazed at what the Romans left across much of Europe and Great Britain, either in the many structures that are still standing as well as many that have been buried and forgotten for centuries. On the way to Sorrento, I believe it was, there is a Roman stone bridge that is still in use. The catacombs in Paris were part of a Roman mining operation. Of course in later years their attraction comes from the bodies dumped down the various vent shafts whose bones were later meticulously stacked up forming human walls. Pompeii was impressive seeing as how well the buildings were preserved with paintings and mosaic tiles stil showing their former beauty. Then there’s things like the York Ministry in England that was built, perhaps unknowingly, on the foundations of an older Roman church, foundations that were insufficient for the new church which started to break apart. The building was saved by careful excavation and reinforcement in the basement while also leaving some of the original Roman stonework that is not critical on display.

    These are just a few of many examples that can be found in just about any country. So again, what impresses you?

    If you like seeing old architecture, most of Europe, especially UK, France, Germany, Italy, etc. are worth checking out.
    I also took once the palace on wheels tour in northern India. Basically a 7 day train ride which also acts as your hotel. Lot of fun and highly recommended.
