The excitement you might be having planning your next vacation to Europe is the same excitement I have sharing all the best vacation destinations in Europe. Here they are.
1. Paris, France
France is the most visited country in the world in terms of tourism, and there are a lot of reasons why they’ve been able to retain their titles for so many years.
The Eiffel Tower is the most reviewed tourist attraction centre in France. This is closely followed by the Louvre Museum, being the world’s largest museum.
Based on customer reviews and testimonials there are other places worth a visit including; The Musée d’Orsay, Avenue des Champs-Élysées, Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris, among others.
When visiting Paris, you’re not limited to museums and mediaeval buildings, you can also buy tickets to the many fashion events and trade shows in Paris.
If planned right, any visit to Paris is an unforgettable one.
2. Polarlights, Northern Europe
The aurora is what bucket list are meant for!
If you haven’t yet caught sight of the beautiful northern lights, then it might just be the most magnificent thing you’ll ever see in your life.
I did not mention a specific country for this trip, because there are a lot of options in Europe you can choose from.
Iceland, Norway, Sweden, and Finland are the four countries in Europe blessed with the views of the Northern lights.
Based on reviews the village of Abisko in Sweden has scored some of the best reviews.
You can get adventurous with your tour to the northern part of Sweden by camping at the Abisko National Park.
3. Rome, Italy
Rome is the perfect depiction of history. History has taken many centuries to be and crafted to perfection and be celebrated in the 21st century.
It is also one of the most visited cities in Europe and the number one tourist attraction in Italy.
It is not a trip to Rome without visiting the iconic Colosseum. It is famously known for hosting gladiator tournaments dating back to 264 BC. If that is not the ancient history, I don’t know what is.
Apart from that, you can visit Saint Peter’s Square and Saint Peter’s Basilica.
The Sistine Chapel is also one of the most visited places in Rome which is part of the vast Vatican museum complex.
It is a bit out of context, but you must ensure you dine in some local traditional Italian dishes.
4. London, UK
London is by far one of the most visited cities in Europe. Many people all over the world move to London because of the UK’s stable economy.
All across the town, you find beautiful well-structured medieval buildings.
Not only is London known for the old buildings but also it stands out for its modern architecture as well.

The world’s oldest university, the University of Oxford, is also not so far from London. You may as well make a stop there and see firsthand the historic architectural designs and museums in Oxford.
