Europe has many beautiful countries. All of which offer tourists a unique and memorable experience. Want to visit Europe but can't decide where on the continent you should travel to next? Here are 5 popular European tourist destinations.
With so many recognisable landmarks, it’s not a surprise that Paris is the 3rd most visited city in the world. There’s the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and the Arc de Triomphe, to name a few.
But this European country has a lot more to offer, there’s lots of history to learn from. Don’t miss the stunning Palace of Versailles or the enchanting Loire Valley Châteaux.
If it’s glorious beaches and heat you want, the French Riviera is for you. The beautiful coast of southeastern France is reported to have 300 days of sunshine per year.
One of the most popular tourist spots in Spain for UK family holidays is the Costa Blanca. The “White Coast” is home to the fun filled Benidorm and beautiful Alicante. Of course Barcelona is also a city not to be missed! It has many charming sights, such as the Sagrada Familia. Read more about this wonderful landmark here.
But if mainland Spain doesn’t seem for you, try the Canary Islands. With lovely weather all year round, these stunning islands get over 9 million visitors a year.
The volcanoes that formed the islands are still a massive part of the culture. Why not visit one of the National Parks where the volcanoes lay? There's incredible views that you won't see anywhere else. On top of that, you'll discover the history of these fascinating isles.
Florence, Naples and the capital city of Rome are full of culture. Make time to take in all the incredible art and history. The Duomo and Trevi Fountain are just 2 of the many world famous attractions Italy has to offer!
The North of Italy is home to 3 beautiful lakes: Lake Como, Lake Garda and Lake Maggiore. For mesmerising landscape views, this is the place to go.
Wherever you visit in Germany, there’s so much interesting culture to see.
Of course, Oktoberfest is what Munich is most famous for. But Germany's third largest city also has incredible architecture. Many buildings were rebuilt after World War 2, leaving the city looking as it did in the late 1800s. While still in Munich, don’t forget to tick the unique English Garden off your list!
When in the capital, The Berlin Wall is a must. Only a small section is in memorial, but it gives an insight into what life was like. Over a million people from all over the world visited the city to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the fall of the wall.
Crete is the largest of the Greek islands and has a range of great things to offer. From the incredible White Mountains to lovely, long beaches, even historic sights. This isle is perfect for whatever type of holiday you're looking for.
To discover the past of Greece even more, visit the island of Rhodes. It is home to ancient ruins and a well preserved medieval city. The Palace of the Grand Master of the Knights holds a lot of interesting history.
