Rome

Ah! This is the crown that holds many hidden jewels! Yes, Italy has always been a cultural destination besides being a romantic one. Attend the White Night Festival; discover the might of the Roman history via the Coliseum, Pantheon, and the Palatine Hill; get soaked into the art world via the museums as well as art galleries; and be blessed in the Pope’s Vatican City featuring St. Peter’s Basilica and Sistine Chapel adorned with the great artworks of Michelangelo. Be here at least for four days.

Paris

How can I miss this city in this list of great European vacations, which is dubbed as the ‘fashion capital’ besides being recognized as among the most terrific cities on Earth? Obviously, the very first attraction that comes to our minds is the Eiffel Tower where not-so-hard ascend offers a spectacular vista of overall Paris. Next, a visit to the Louvre art museum, the largest of its kind on the planet, is a must for all visitors here. It features over 30000 art items and is scenically nestled on the banks of River Seine. Other vivid highlights include Disney Land, Opera Garnier, Arc de Triomphe, and Jardin des Tuileries.

Athens

This is among the favourite ancient destinations for the true fan of history. Allow your pictures of history books to flash in front of you in its real charm as you explore this Greek capital. Acropolis of Athens, Tower of the Winds, Arch of Hadrian, Temple of Olympian Zeus, and Prynx are the most loved tourist attractions. A week tour is just what you need to explore this Europe’s longest city.

Barcelona

This Spanish city is very alive with its myriad of shinning treasures of all kinds. This is where the traditional art and culture resides in harmony with the modern art and culture. Start your holiday here with the indulging summer music festivals, especially the ones that feature flamenco, continue with the fun by savouring the mouth-watering Catalan dishes at any of its restaurants as well as cafeterias; and then climb the ridge point of satisfaction and wonder by exploring works of Picasso in the various museums and galleries. And yes, do also include a tour of the famous La Rambla and La Barceloneta.

Berlin

This German capital is where art, architecture, ancient tradition, and cultures form a perfect atmosphere of vacationing. Besides the fantastic nightlife, Berlin has other magnetic sights and points to keep its guests busy as well as happy. Look for the fashionable malls and shops if you are a shopaholic; Zoologischer Garten that is among the most ancient and internationally acclaimed zoological gardens if you are a fan of botany; and Berlin Wall, Reichstag, and Pergamon Museum if you are a art as well as historic lover.

Reykjavik

Literally meaning ‘steamy bay’, this Iceland capital is where you can have a great winter vacation. However, also note that this is among the costliest destinations, but is worth it! The main attractions are the geothermal pools and the Ice Hotel. Other tourist highlights are Mt. Keilir, Hengill, National Museum, Austurstraeti, and Hafnarstraeti. The museum exposes the culture on this ice-filled land, while the latter two are known for souvenirs and handicrafts.

Edinburgh

This second largest city of Europe in Scotland is well known for its partying nightlife in trendy restaurants and pubs. I recommend visiting this city via a bus that will comfortably as well as affordably take you around the city. With this way of traveling, you can easily wonder at the major tourist attractions – Royal Botanical Garden, National Gallery of Scotland, Museum of Scotland, and Royal Yacht Britannia.
