What Not to Miss: 7 Must-See European Destinations for Your Trip

words Al Woods

There are many beautiful places to visit in Europe, from the rural areas of France and Italy to the islands off the coasts of Greece and Spain. It might be difficult to decide where to go in Europe since many different countries and regions offer breathtaking scenery and famous landmarks. That’s why we compiled a list of the top European tourist destinations. Start your trip planning for Europe with this handy checklist.

European Destination Trip

Rome, Italy

If you can only visit one Italian city or perhaps just one in Europe, make it Rome. There’s almost too much to see and do here for a single trip, what with all the historic monuments like the Pantheon, Colosseum, and world-famous Trevi Fountain. You should also visit the outdoor markets and restaurants of contemporary Rome during your trip to the Eternal City, in addition to the Roman Forum and the Vatican. Every season brings something new to the Eternal City, making it the best place to visit in Europe. Rome is, without question, a top European tourist destination.

London, UK

Fish and chips at a neighborhood pub, a visit to the world-renowned British Museum, the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, and a tour of the palace are all the must of any visit to London. Both history buffs and foodies should not miss the Tower of London and Borough Market. With so much to see and do in London, it is recommended to have a look at different London tours and book sightseeing in advance. Hotel costs in London might be prohibitive for those on a shoestring. You may save money by making reservations in advance.

Thessaloniki, Greece

Thessaloniki is often referred to as Greece’s “second city,” and it is well worth the hour-long flight from Athens to get there. This northern port has a lot to offer history buffs, yet it also seems quite contemporary. Thanks to its many rulers, the area is littered with Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman remains; after seeing them, go to Valaoritou Street for chic cocktail lounges and lively nightlife. Since the city’s core was rebuilt following the Great Fire of 1917, the 20th-century buildings here will have a very different mood from the rest of Greece. The city’s beaches are also more manageable for residents than those on the islands, so it’s a favorite destination. The White Tower, the Roman Forum, and the narrow lanes of Ano Poli should not be missed.

Prague, Czech Republic

Prague is a magical city that will make you feel like you’ve entered a fairytale. Explore Prague Castle and walk over the picturesque Charles Bridge, and don’t miss Old Town Square with its Gothic architecture and lively atmosphere. Petrn Hill, the Wallenstein Garden, and Letná Parks are just a few of the beautiful parks in this Czech city. Travelers looking to save money in Europe will find that Prague is a good starting point due to its low prices across the board (including food and drink, lodging, and transportation).

Côte d’Azur, France

Côte d’Azur, or The French Riviera, is a famous and glamorous region of France in the country’s southeast, renowned for its beautiful beaches, five-star hotels, and high standard of living. This area of the Mediterranean has stunning scenery, a thriving cultural scene, and the undeniable allure of the Mediterranean. Almost 700 kilometers of it may be found along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, beginning at the Italian border and ending in the city of Saint-Tropez. Nice, Cannes, Saint-Tropez, and Monaco are among its most renowned cities and coastal resorts. Opportunities for trekking, water activities, and discovering local fauna may also be found in the Esterel streams, on the Lérins islands, and in the Mercantour national park.

European Destinations Trip

Warsaw, Poland

Warsaw is a city with something to offer everyone: it is beautiful, pleasant, green, open-minded, and great for a family vacation, a cultural vacation, a shopping adventure, or a romantic stay. Visit at any time of year to take advantage of the city’s packed event schedule, and don’t miss out on a chance to stroll around its lovely parks or relax on its city beaches. There are a plethora of exciting things to do in Warsaw, from trying the regional cuisine to flying in a hot air balloon or zipping through the trees in one of the city’s many parks.


Iceland, often known as the Land of Fire and Ice, is a geological marvel with natural beauty that is difficult to fathom until you’ve experienced it for yourself. Reykjavik, one of the safest towns in the world, is famous for its vibrant nightlife and music scene, as well as its geothermal hot springs, known as “The Blue Lagoon.” Get out of the city and you can view hundreds of waterfalls and volcanoes, two of Europe’s most impressive natural features. Despite its position as the northernmost capital in the globe, Reykjavik has mild winters, mild summers, and mild autumns, making it a wonderful vacation spot throughout the year. Visitors hoping to view the Northern Lights should schedule their trip during the winter months.

The history, culture, and architecture of Europe’s cities make them some of the top tourist destinations in the world. There is something for everyone in a European city, from historic sites to quaint streets to quaint cafés. Choose from one of these cities if you’re searching for a vacation destination, and start packing your things!
