100 Things to do during the Euros

Sitting outside a bar on the edge of a city's main square is one way to spend time between games. But if you'd like a few other ideas, I've compiled below a list of 100.

They range from brewery tours to stadium tours, from computer games to concentration camps, architecture to art, diving to golf and Audi to Porsche. They're mainly in or near host cities, but a few are for day trips or places you might visit en route between games.

I hope you find a few things here that you'd like to do. If you have any other ideas that you'd like to share, please send me an e-mail.
