that people set out for themselves at the beginning of the year is to travel to
their favorite holiday destinations. Amongst the many places that people love
to visit, Europe happens to offer the most amazing cities for travelers. If you

Amsterdam is among the most beautiful cities out there in the Netherlands. It happens to have some exciting locations to visit. Amsterdam is full of charm and has a royal heritage to boast off. You can take a cruise in the famous canals of the city, explore the beautiful architecture of monuments, and even get to try the ever-delicious beers of the Netherlands.
People usually consider the Netherlands to be a perfect country to start a tour of Europe. So, if European cities are a part of your traveling plans, then we suggest that you ensure it is Amsterdam from where you begin.
2. Rome, Italy
There is a very common Roman proverb that goes— “when in Rome, do as the Romans do." Rome certainly gives all the reasons for its tourists to embrace its culture. The beautiful city in Italy is known for its heritage and people take pride in carrying their culture for years. Visiting art galleries and museums in Rome is something that every traveler must try.
Italy is one of the first countries that comes to the mind for individuals when one talks about Europe. The people are amazing, their food is delicious, and the overall experience of spending time in the city is worth every second you spend there.
3. Istanbul, Turkey
Istanbul might not be the first place that might pop up in your mind when it comes to traveling in Europe, but it is undoubtedly a place that you must consider going to. The city of Istanbul offers unique places and scenery for you to appreciate. Taking the Bosphorus Cruise to get a tour of the entire city is something that you must not miss out on. There are endless flea markets in the city that will allow you to get your hands on some fabulous artifacts there.
4. Stockholm, Sweden

Stockholm is yet another European city that deserves to be in your dream travel destination list. Amongst the different towns that we mention in this list, Stockholm is one of the richest cities out there. The city has a great history and places to visit. It is the home to UNESCO’s two world heritage sites, which are big attractions to tourists. Birka and Drottningholm Palace are the oldest tourist destinations where you must go.
If you are a history buff, then you would love to know more about the past of Stockholm by visiting the Skansen air museum. Stockholm has some of the hottest restaurants to visit in the entire country of Sweden. From the classic Den Gyldene Freden to the amazing Gondolen, there are some trendy restaurants that you may want to try.
5. Poznan, Poland

Poznan is another historical city on our list of top places to visit in Europe. One of the oldest cities in Poland, Poznan is a beautiful place to explore and learn about the country. It has some unmatchable monuments and old buildings that have very interesting stories which go along with them. The Franciscan Church and many other grand cathedrals are worth a visit in the city.
A tour in Poznan does not cost you much and it happens to be a place that one can visit any time of the year. If the purpose of your trip to Europe is to get a break from work and get away from all the city rush, then Poznan is where you should be heading to. You can get your much-needed silence here and relax easily.
6. Geneva, Switzerland

Geneva offers you endless reasons to visit. Different attractive locations, a vibrant environment, delicious food, and the unmissable shopping stores make Geneva a definite place to consider for a visit. If you are someone who loves adventures, then the watersports in Geneva are something that you must try. Scuba diving and rafting are two activities that tourists seek to do in this city.
The French culture highly influences Geneva, and as a tourist, you'll notice it too. The city is home to the UN and many other relevant international organizations in Europe. Lake Geneva and the English Garden are two highly recommended places that we suggest you visit this New Year.
7. Venice, Italy

There is no doubt about the fact that Venice is very popular among tourists from all over the world. The city is full of colors and has a vibrant culture that goes along with it. Being an Italian city, Venice has delicious food to offer that is full of flavors.
If you start your trip to Italy from Venice, then you should also consider a road trip from there to Rome where you can enjoy the scenery while driving there. Traveling by road to Venice is hassle-free. You can manage your luggage by investing in a top-quality roof rack during this road trip while exploring some of the grandest hotels available there.
Venice is well-known as the ‘city of canals,’ and you can take a tour of the whole place by going on a cruise. St. Mark's Square and the Grand Canal are some destinations in Venice that you must not miss out on.
8. London, England

London is not just one popular city in Europe, but it happens to be among the most visited cities in the world too. Millions of tourists visit London every day to explore this city of the royal family. There are so many attractions for London visitors that even after spending a week there, you might not be able to explore all of them. Despite how crowded the city is, London is still a lot calmer compared to other big metro cities in the world. Big Ben, the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and the magnificent Buckingham Palace are just a few of the many significant places to visit in the capital of England.
9. Budapest, Hungary

Budapest has everything that one can ask for from a tourist destination. Easy commuting, beautiful spaces, friendly people, and less expensive accommodations make Budapest worth recommending. This unique city of Hungary has an amazing nightlife that every party-lover would enjoy.
If you happen to begin your journey to Europe with Budapest, then we suggest that you take a bike tour of the whole city to know it closely. Sailing in the Danube river is also something that you should do when in Budapest.

Excellent post! I and my wife were discussing the countries that we can visit in Europe. Our choices were Spain, Italy and the Netherlands.

This will make sure that we experience the best of the Netherlands during our short vacation.ReplyDelete
Lovely post with engaging pictures! To be honest - your post reminded me of my last trip to Europe with my spouse and kids. It's like I am reliving the moments spent in these beautiful countries. I still recall that our Italy trip was like last-minute planning and we applied for a visa by applying for an Italy Visa from the UK. And, gladly we got in touch with one of the reliable visa companies which got all things sorted for us without causing us any hassle.ReplyDelete
Excellent post! Your suggestions about European cities and travel experiences have nudged me to apply for a visa for Poland . I would love to visit some charming cities of Poland and explore the amazing attractions that you have suggested in your blog.ReplyDelete
Anthony Constantinou | Anthony Constantinou CEO CWM FX says Yes it is necessary to have a travel insurance document and all other important documents with you. However you need to ensure to keep them safe. When we had the tour of U.S. that was arranged by my travel agent they told us to bring the entire necessary document that allows us to enter the destination country as well as for the return of home.ReplyDelete
Interesting post! I recently got my Netherlands Visa UK thanks to some timely help from a professional consultancy. On the other hand, I was also searching for a Netherlands travel guide that will throw some light on things to do and places to visit in the Netherlands. That’s how I landed on your blog. The wonder tips that you shared in the article can certainly fit my travel plans. I just need to tweak it a little bit and then I’ll be good to go. Do share such interesting travel guides about other European countries too.ReplyDelete
