Best for travel in Europe
From England and France to Italy and Germany, European countries abound with dynamic cities known for their museums, restaurants, nightlife and architecture. So it’s not surprising that it’s hard to decide which are the best places to visit in Europe.
The “Old Continent” has attracted millions of travelers and expatriates from all over the world for centuries. And with good reason: Europe has an immense historical and cultural wealth and a great diversity of landscapes that cannot be seen anywhere else. Paris, London, Rome, Madrid and many others are among the most beautiful cities in the world, and rightly so. But that’s a bit cliché, isn’t it? That’s why we decided to take into account the strengths of each destination – as well as user votes and expert opinions – to take a tour of the best vacation destinations in Europe.
If many of us go on vacation abroad, it would be a shame to miss out on the charms of France. You don’t need to travel far away to get away from it all and spend a good vacation with your family, your lover or your friends! Travelling in France can give the impression of being at the end of the world, you just need to know where to go.
The regions of France are full of natural wonders and have an exceptional historical, cultural, artistic and gastronomic heritage. Mountains, plains, creeks, forests, picturesque villages, heavenly islands… from north to south, from east to west, no two French landscapes are alike. The offers of stays are numerous and the prices are adapted to all wallets.
For a weekend in France, opt for a city break in Toulouse, Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux… to discover all the historical richness of these cities and enjoy their festivities and gastronomy. For the more adventurous, choose a vacation dedicated to hiking by going on the famous GR 20 in Corsica or the customs trail, the GR 34, on the Brittany coast. Feel like a rest? Head for the seaside for a relaxing vacation with your feet in the water in Montpellier, Biarritz, Fréjus, Sète…
The most beautiful places in Spain that you absolutely must visit and discover!
Few travelers have not visited Spain at least once. And for good reason, the country is in second place in the ranking of world tourist destinations. However, it is often the same places that we visit: the capital Madrid, the Catalan Barcelona, the Costa Brava for the summer vacations or the Andalusian Seville.
But Spain has more to offer. Rich in fascinating history, at the crossroads of the Arab-Muslim and Latin-European worlds, it allows you to travel through history from one region to another and across… the world! Many of the country’s sites and monuments are now classified as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and both the cities and the Spanish countryside are full of wonders to discover.
To help you in your Iberian adventures, we’ve prepared a list of the 20 most beautiful places to visit in Spain!
Germany is a Western European country whose landscape consists of forests, rivers, mountain ranges and beaches on the North Sea. Its history goes back more than 2,000 years. With a lively art and nightlife, Berlin, its capital city, includes the Brandenburg Gate and many sites related to World War II. Munich is known for its Oktoberfest and beer bars, including the Hofbräuhaus which dates back to the 16th century. Frankfurt, with its skyscrapers, is home to the European Central Bank.
Germany is a large country with a long and exciting history, a rich artistic and cultural past and present, and a dazzling diversity of landscapes: in the north, long beaches, dreamlike Hanseatic architecture, small and large islands, lagoons and coastal regions of the Baltic and North Seas invite to rest and entertainment. Further south, the Mecklenburg Lake District is a true paradise that is still unspoilt, ideal for hiking, biking and water sports of all kinds. Here you will happily discover vast expanses, lush forests, gentle hills, streams and rivers, as well as lakes of all sizes. Further downhill, where these hills become medium mountains (Harz, Rhön, Ore Mountains and Thuringia Forest) and then give way to the German Alps, you can enjoy trekking and winter sports while enjoying the fresh air, through landscapes dotted with peaceful villages, small and large cities, but also metropolises. And, even if you did see the one hundred sights listed here, you wouldn’t have had the chance to see all the many facets that Germany has to offer. So consider it a great introduction to the country. Gute Reise!
