2017 stands before us like a fresh chapter of a book and what better way to kick the year off than with an adventure? It’s time to begin planning your next trip – there’s a whole heap of wonderful destinations to explore in Europe. Some are better suited to the typical tourist whilst others are little more off the beaten track.
Paris is the dream destination for those looking for a city with personality. It has the perfect blend of history and culture paired with contemporary architecture and you’ll easily understand why it is considered one of the world’s most beautiful cities. With its apartments, playgrounds, food markets and cafés, you’ll feel right at home in the heart of it all.
Visit Lisbon for the simple charm and maritime magic of a vintage-era Southern European capital destination. Perfect for the culture seekers; this dainty sun-kissed city lives in a Latin fairy-tale of timeworn manners and traditions! Just check out the century-old wooden trams and iron funiculars that still lurch and rumble their way among the seven steep hills over which this city lies.
Italy’s fashion and design destination, Milan, has an international cosmopolitan outlook, a vibrant food and drink scene and scores of hotels to suit all budgets. The city’s excellent shopping is a huge draw for visitors– designer stores line the Quadrilatero D’Oro district, while outlets, high street shops and boutiques are found in all corners of the city.
Handed the prestigious title of Best European Destination of 2016 it is easy to see why Zadar is hailed as the ideal holiday destination. Visiting this destination is perfect for the traveller who is looking for something unique; it has a soft and cosy atmosphere that provides the perfect foundation for a serene and tranquil break. Not only can you expect to enjoy delicious Croatian cuisine and stunning walks across the docks, but as the city is known for being quiet and safe, you can take a scenic stroll at any hour without a care in the world. (or another variant of this? Everything will be okay seemed a bit flat. Or “…you can take a carefree scenic stroll through the city at any hour.”)
