#5 – Venice, Italy
Venice is located on Italy’s North East coastline just a stone’s throw away from Bologna or more notably, Milan. Now Venice may be well known for its romantic Gondola rides through the Grand Canal and water filled laneways. But this historic, culture filled city isn’t just for young lovers. Venice has a plethora of churches, museums, theaters, laneways, coffee shops, eateries and much much more. Coming in at number five, Venice will remain in your heart for a long, long time.
#4 – Florence, Italy
Staying in Italy, why not head three hours south to the historical city of Florence. Here you will again be spoilt for choice when it comes to European and Italian culture. Florence has a tremendous amount of museums, impressive architecture, boutique hotels, and mouthwatering eateries and cuisine. Make sure you take time to check out Michelangelo’s David, climb to the top of the Duomo and admire the breathtaking view from the Ponte Vecchio. If history, culture, and architecture is your thing, Florence is a must.
#3 – London, England
Arguably one of the most famous cities in the world, let alone Europe. London has so much to offer and you will need to make sure you make time to see everything on your list. For history buffs, check out the world-class British Museum, explore the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, and London Bridge. For more spectacular views of London, you can either take a ride on the infamous London Eye or head up the Cities newest attraction The Shard for a truly breathtaking, panoramic view of the entire capital.
#2 – Rome, Italy
Heading back to Italy, Rome is another must-see capital city within Europe. The Italians are famous for pasta, pizza, and risotto but make sure you try some of Rome’s finest gelato – you’ll struggle to find anything better in the whole of Europe. Make your way through Rome’s winding alleyways and historical sites. Be sure to check out the Trevi Fountain, St. Peter’s Basilica and the world-famous (of what’s left of it) The Colosseum. Think back to when Russel Crowe was looked upon by the Roman Empire in the great gladiatorial games.
#1 – Paris, France
The capital of France is arguably one of the most romantic cities in the whole of Europe. The Eiffel tower should be on everyone’s bucket list. But make sure you plan plenty of time as the queues to start the climb towards the top can be lengthy at the best of times. If you’re afraid of heights there are plenty more attractions to visit. Notre-Dame Cathedral, The Louvre, and the Arc de Triomphe are all other must-sees when exploring Paris. Make sure you try some of the local delicacies and the wine of course!
