I love travelling and specifically, I love Europe. I love the architecture, beaches, food, and the magical feeling of being in Europe. I have visited some breathtaking cities and countries in Europe but there are still so many places that I want to see.
5 Best Places to Visit in Europe
- Algarve, Portugal
This past summer, I had the pleasure of visiting Portugal for the first time. I travelled down to the Algarve and stayed in Albufeira and Portimao. They were both beautiful places with gorgeous beaches and delicious food. Portugal is also a lot more inexpensive than other European countries so you won’t feel as bad ordering another pitcher of Sangria 😉 Speaking of sangria, my friends and I had the most delicious sangria in the Algarve. If you can, rent a car and drive through the Algarve as there is lots to see and do. I can’t wait to return!
2. Santorini, Greece
Before I visited Santorini years ago, I thought maybe it would be overrated and not as good as movies made it seem. After visiting Santorini, I can say that it’s underrated if anything. It was the most magical and beautiful place that I have ever been to.
We stayed in Firostefani Santorini which was a beautiful location and also very quiet. Make sure that you stay somewhere with a great view because there’s nothing like waking up to the views that I had in Santorini. You will feel like you are in a different world.
3. Positano, Italy
Positano is a gorgeous cliffside village on the Amalfi Coast in Italy. I visited there last summer and enjoyed the picturesque views and endearing shops. There are also tons of great restaurants with delicious pasta, pizza, and of course gelato. It is an expensive place to stay but it’s worth it to visit even just for the day. They also have an amazing nightclub called “Music on the rocks” that I went to last summer if you are looking for nightlife.
The following two places are places that I want to travel to.
4. Seville, Spain
Seville is somewhere that I really want to visit in Spain (so far I have only visited Barcelona). It is known for its flamenco dancing, castles, and gothic cathedrals. It is bright, colourful, and full of life. Parts of the show “Game of Thrones” were filmed in Seville. It truly looks breathtaking and I can’t wait to visit there one day.
5. Reykjavík, Iceland
Iceland is another top place on my travel bucket list. I hope to go there in the next year or two. I plan to rent a car and drive through Iceland, staying in different towns. There is so much to see and do in Iceland no matter the season. I want to go to Iceland to see the Northern Lights, swim in the Blue Lagoon, hike, and see the gorgeous waterfalls. I also heard that people are very nice in Iceland.
Those are 5 of the best places to visit in Europe. I hope that you enjoyed this post and let me know what your favourite places in Europe are.
