Most people dream of a trip to Europe, but if you’re planning a trip you may begin to get a little overwhelmed. After all, it’s a massive continent with so much to see and do. Personally, I like to go to places that are a little less visited than the average European city, so you may want to book a Europe tour that mixes some classic and off-the-beaten-path destinations.
Here are some of my favourite cities to visit in Europe:
One thing I’ve noticed about Prague? I’ve never heard anyone say anything bad about it. Of course, that doesn’t mean the city is perfect, but anytime I mention I’ve been to Prague or someone tells me they’ve visited I only hear about how great the city is. And I wholeheartedly agree. Prague is beautiful, with incredible architecture, great food, and tons of fun things to do. I visited just in time for the Christmas market, and it remains one of my all-time favourite experiences in Europe.
Just six hours from Prague, Budapest is another city that continues to grow in popularity each year. The city has recently seen a deluge of tourists, especially groups of Brits coming for Stag nights. The beer is cheap, and the nightlife is incredible, with the ruin bars open until the early hours of the morning every night of the week.
Don’t miss the House of Terror. This will give you a great insight into just what Hungarians have been through and help you understand a little about why Eastern Europeans have a reputation for being cold. I also love the hop-on-hop-off bus tour as it’s a great way to see the city. You’ll get to see historical Buda in the east and chilled, vibrant Pest in the west.
I loved every part of Poland, and Krakow is also a must-visit. But for me, I was most surprised by how modern Warsaw was. The city was turned to rubble in WWII and it’s incredible how the Polish people have rebuilt and are stronger than ever. The food was excellent, the public transport is great, and if you’re planning a trip to Europe, the entire country is a must-visit.
I could seriously see myself living in Edinburgh one day. The Scotts are some of the friendliest people I’ve ever met, and I go crazy for the delicious scones in this city. Edinburgh is seriously beautiful, the nightlife is crazy, and it’s where J K Rowling wrote Harry Potter (don’t miss the free Harry Potter walking tour- especially if you have kids).
If you want to see a bunch of different cities in a short amount of time, it’s a good idea to book a tour. That way, all the hard work is done for you and you can simply relax and enjoy each city.
