So, doing an Eurotrip? then here are the best places in Europe to visit this summer. Have fun!
I know it sounds weird but Iceland is actually a very interesting country, with one of the most impressive landscapes in the world. It is the place where white glaciers and black sands, blue hot springs, rugged lava fields, and green valleys all meet. Here nature is ferocious: rom the still-warm lava from the 1973 Vestmannaeyjar (Westman Islands) and the 2000 Mt. Hekla volcanic eruptions to the chilling splendor of the Vatnajökull Glacier. Visit Iceland!
Yes, another ‘cold country’ and why not? Stockholm is a fascinating place where local craft, modern design and ancient architecture get together in a bustling metropolis. During summer people buzz around the street and spend time in what some say is Stockholm’s best attraction: its mixed, modern, self-assured, beautiful population.
Scotish landscapes will take your breath away. “Edinburgh is a gloriously dignified city; Glasgow, a Victorian powerhouse. An excursion to St. Andrews is a pilgrimage for golf aficionados and numerous castles polka-dot the northeast. Its local products, customs, music, and traditional dress—from tartans and bagpipes to tweeds—travel all over the globe, but there’s nothing like experiencing them firsthand.” – Fodors
Austria has been described as ‘a blast from the past’. Indeed it is a place where elegance from another times is still present: from the arquitecture to the couples lingering in coffee shops. Don’t forget to have an Apfelstrudel!
Switzerland is a paradox: rustic friendliness against high-tech urban efficiency, the harmony of the mountains (and Heidi!) against the digital screens tick off beef futures in Zurich. A heaven when it comes to private banking, Switzerland is famous for serious shopping, major music festivals, fabulous art collections, palace hotels, state-of-the-art spas, and some of the finest gastronomy in the world.
The legacy of past generations cohexists with modernity in Turkey, where upscale eateries and swanky nightclubs are squeezed between Byzantine and Ottoman structures. The Aegean and Mediterranean coasts mix ancient Roman ruins with stunning beaches and resorts. Still, the real cultural lessons come from the Turkish people, always welcoming and eager to share their homeland’s fascinating past and present.
Spain conjures images of flamenco dancers, café-lined plazas, white hillside villages, and soaring cathedrals. Beyond these traditional associations, this modern country offers top-notch art museums, inventive cuisine, and exciting nightlife. From the Pyrenees to the coast, its landscapes and varied cultures are worth exploring.
I couldn’t talk about travelling in Europe without mentioning Italy, a country people can’t get enough of. They come for awe-inspiring art and architecture that influenced Western civilization, and stunning historical ruins—as well as for some of the world’s best food and wine. Don’t miss out on Lake Como, the mediterranean costs and the amazing castles and palaces and, of couse the art hubs: Rome, Milan and Florence.
