Best Cities to Visit in EuropeIf you can embark on a journey of a lifetime to Europe, it would be worth every moment (and every penny!). Though there is a plethora of countries to visit, the truth is, you only have just a couple of days to explore every nook and cranny. So plan your itineraries and choose from among these exquisite cities in Europe that would bring you ultimate satisfaction and sense of accomplishment. Indulge and splurge in the finer things in life as you immerse yourself with the unique culture and customs as well as dialect and cuisines of each city.

If you want to be surrounded by an awe-inspiring blend of European influences and Mediterranean flair, head out to Barcelona. As a must-visit destination for adventure seekers and free-spirited backpackers, Barcelona will make you fall in love with its laid-back ambiance, vibrant surroundings, and rich cultural offerings. Life is truly sweeter to enjoy when not in a fast-paced mode. And you can experience it here in the city of contrasting wonders and charms as you tour around the magnificent Picasso Museum, the bustling ports of Costa Brava, and the majestic Sagrada Familia Church.

The amazing and complex city of Amsterdam is not your ordinary European city. As one of the hottest spots on Earth, it offers a great combination of pleasure, adventure, and luxury. Gone were the days of its low reputation due to the unscrupulous Red Light District. Though you might still find yourself a little bashful from all the exotic sceneries, your attention could easily be caught by other fascinating activities such as riding a bike to tour around each nook and cranny of the city. You do not only get to stay fit and healthy during your extravagant world tour but also get to experience the intricacies and simplicities of Amsterdam. Pass along the Heineken Brewery or ride through the canals. Stop by for a cup of coffee and a bite of eccentric-tasting sweets at coffee shops. Do not miss the Van Gogh museum and the Anne Frank house. These are just some of the must-visit spots during your travel stint in the city of bridges, canals, and bicycles.

The unreal alpine adventure heaven in the city of Bern is a sweet distraction for most travellers, and who could blame them? This 15th century UNESCO World Heritage site Old Town of Switzerland is the most underrated capital city on the continent. Yet, this gorgeous fountain-filled beauty is the epitome of classical and classy as well as modern and chic. Here you can experience intellectual bars, artsy boutiques and locavore cuisine. The Emmental Cheese Route is dream come true for cheese lovers while budget conscious music fanatics would be head over heels for the annual Buskers Street Music Festival.

Oh, who could resist the beauty and enigma of Paris? If you would have to choose the best destination for your once-in-a-lifetime travel, then it would be no doubt as the City of Light. From its cobbled sidewalks and world-class museums to the historic Notre Dame and the stunning Eiffel Tower – you would find yourself enthralled with the sights, sounds, and experiences. You don’t have to be an art connoisseur to appreciate all the splendour of things here. To save time and money, avail the prepaid entry card – Paris Museum Pass. It will give you access to more than 70 galleries, monuments, and public houses around Paris. Do not end your holiday stint here without dropping by the Château de Versailles and the Pantheon.

Rounding off your best cities to visit in Europe is the city of fog and love – London. A 3-day tour is simply not enough to quench your thirst for the dreamy places to visit here. Some of the crowd favourites here are the Buckingham Palace, which is the main residence of the Queen; the Westminster Abbey, which is the historic church where royal weddings and burials take place; and, the London Eye, which is a humongous Ferris wheel in the heart of the city. Energetic and vibrant spirits can satiate their longings for culture, history, and grandeur while in London.
