Having trouble planning your European trip? Don’t worry, we know there are too many incredible cities to visit, so we’ve put this bucket-list European itinerary together to help you navigate your options.
Brace yourself. This is one serious trip, but it’s absolutely worth it. We recommend you tackle it with us, so you don’t miss out on any of these amazing experiences.
Here it goes:
London (4 days)
Load up on history, tweed, and tea. Make a pilgrimage to the final resting places of all your favorite Englishmen at Westminster Abbey.
Amsterdam (3 days)
Amsterdam has it all: imperial history, artistic pedigree, great music. Plus, if you go in the spring, you may get to see some beautiful tulips!
Brussels (2 days)
Go beyond the waffles, the chocolate, and the beer to find…a peeing statue. Well, that’s something.
Paris (4 days)
The quintessential European city will have you singing La vie en Rose in no time. This is a must on any European trip.
Barcelona (3 days)
Stroll through the medieval streets of Barri Gòtic, which means Gothic Quarter in Catalan, in search of damsels to rescue and dragons to slay.
Lisbon (2 days)
Sip vinho do porto while gazing at the sunset over the Rio Tejo.
Madrid (2 days)
Eat dinner at midnight, go out until dawn, and explore the city between siestas.
Rome (4 days)
Get the best of the old (the Colosseum owes a lot to facelifts) and the new (bars in the Centro Storico and clubs in Testaccio) in the Eternal City.
Florence (3 days)
Throw yourself into the Renaissance, which seems to live on in every Florentine building.
Venice (2 days)
Taking a gondola ride is the perfect way to explore the beautiful nooks and crannies of this lagoon island.
Prague (3 days)
During the day, the Charles Bridge is overrun with tourists and vendors, but there’s nothing quite so magical at night.
Munich (2 days)
Oktoberfest will leave you wishing for some January- through Decemberfests.
Berlin (3 days)
Look out for horn-rimmed glasses and cardigans among Friedrichshain’s nightclubs, which are housed in former DDR buildings.
Copenhagen (2 days)
The Scandinavian north welcomes you with castles, gardens, and endless pub-crawl opportunities.
Istanbul (3 days)
Experience the city that has been fought over for millennia. Europe-d out? Asia is a cheap ferry ride away.
