This is a worldwide famous vacation spot in Greece that is perfect for those people from different parts of the world who have a passion for nature and history. Athens has constantly been chosen as one of the most sought after cities to visit in Europe because of the amazing amount of landmarks it has. If you go to Athens you should go to the Acropolis and you shouldn’t miss the Parliament Building that is in Syntagma Square. If you want to learn more about the ancient societies then going to the National Archaeological Museum and the Benaki Museum is what you have to do. This will allow you to understand the Greek culture a lot better.



Another of the cities to visit in Europe is Vienna mainly because of the historical events that took place in the past in Austria and that marked the city to become what it is today. The architecture in Vienna makes you feel as if the city had been especially created to go with classical music. Even when there aren’t many landmarks like there are in other European cities, there’s a charm in the city that seems to appeal to tourists from different parts of the world to delight in the most memorable experiences.



The majority of travellers who have been to Venice claim that it is one of the most inviting cities to visit in Europe. Because Venice is an isle, it’s not surprising to see inland waterways and viaducts that cross the city. There are gondolas in all the waterways because that’s very popular for tourist who will have to walk through the city’s ancient narrow streets. You will be able to see historical buildings of all kinds and you will also have the chance to eat in the best restaurants.



When King Gustav Vasa founded the city in Finland he never thought it would be so flourishing nowadays. Some of the places you should go to are the Helsinki Card and the Museum of Contemporary Art. If you are a food lover then you can’t miss going to some of the finest cafe and dinning places in the city.



The Italian capital city is world-famous for being a centre of cultural and traditional customs. If you go to Rome there are some must-see landmarks you can’t miss, some of them are the Pantheon, the Roman Coliseum, the Vatican City and the Sistine Chapel, which will surely surprise you. If you enjoy shopping, then Rome is the city for you because there are lots of retail shops that offer tourists great discounts. This means that if you want to spend some special days with your couple and at the same time visit historical sites, Rome is only one of the cities to travel to in Europe without doubt.



It is not difficult to understand why London still is one of the most preferred cities to visit in Europe since it has everything tourists are looking for in a top holiday destination including historical sites, cultural events, lots of amusement, shopping malls, the attractive royalty and an enticing environment that no other city in Europe has. The city is full of things to entertain tourists such as going to the London Tower or the Eye of London for a more spectacular view of the city, seeing the changing of the guard at the palace where the Queen resides, going to the Tate Modern or even trying the typical British dishes. For these reasons, London is a city that attracts people from all corners the world including newly weds, adventure cyclists and travellers and families. And at night you can have a great time if you go to one of the local bars or theatres.



Most of the cities located to the East of Europe have a unique style that seems to derive from the several historical buildings and castles that look over gothic towns that can’t hide the Soviet influence they once had. If you think of all those things together in one city, then Prague is your best option because you will have the chance to feel history as you walk through the Old Town Square and get to the market to see the Astronomical Clock that seems to take you to medieval times. You can’t miss walking over the bridges and narrow streets and if you want to have a fantastic view you should make your way up to get to the Prague Castle.



When you go to Amsterdam you will surely spend most of your time having a look at the old villas where the merchants lived, the fascinating alleys in Jordan or the great Voldelpark that will give you the chance to feel as if you lived in the middle ages. Coffee shops are always crowded and most of the museums are full of art from times of prosperity and peace but people still enjoy going clubbing. Amsterdam, which is located in the Netherlands, is the perfect city to visit all year-long but if you get the chance to go there for the Queen’s Day you won’t regret it.



One of the cities to go to in Europe and that you can’t miss is Barcelona. Antonio Gaudi, one of the best architects in the world, was able to give the city some of the most iconic landmarks that make the city worldwide famous including La Sagrada Familia, a humongous cathedral that is even now in the building process but that gives the city a unique charm. If you want to have fun, Barcelona is the place for you because there are lots of restaurants and bars that offer tourists with the entertainment they need in a city where there are lots of things to do and see.



There’s no doubt why Paris is one of the most enticing cities to explore in Europe if you think about the terrible moments the city had to go through, especially during the Second World War, which gives the perfect historic yet modern atmosphere tourists are looking for. The city has several landmarks including the Eiffel Tower, The Louvre Art Museum and lots of picturesque buildings and churches that give tourists the chance to see what the city was like in past but who can also enjoy the most romantic moments of their lives.

Very good article. Paris is the best European city. I never did like Athens when I visited it.
