Avid travelers have been surveyed to determine where are the most loved cities in Europe, here are the results for when only the best will do!


Florence, Italy

Best for: Romance, Charm, Gelato

 The streets of Florence are filled with charm, great Italian eats…. and people. It’s no surprise so many visitors come to Florence each year, it is a true Tuscan gem! For the best gelato in town, locals head to Gelateria La Carraia.


Rome, Italy

Best for: History, Pizza, onlookers

Rome…..the eternal city. It’s hard to beat. Everyone and anyone who has travelled will have been to Rome at least once in their lifetime – it’s a must!

  Grand Bazaar Istanbul

Istanbul, Turkey

Best for: Culture, History, Tradition

 Istanbul was recently included as one of the most underrated cities to visit in Europe. Although it’s a little further out of the way for those doing a Eurotrip, it’s a venture worth while!


Seville, Spain

Best for: Tapas!

Seville is the unsung hero of Spain. For any traveller looking to venture beyond popular Barcelona, Sevilla is a great port of call!


Barcelona, Spain

Best for: Tapas, Nightlife

 Barcelona has quickly become a hotspot for European travellers – one bite into an item of food and you won’t question why! Be sure to drop by La Boqueria for some healthy eats.

Budapest, Hungary

Best for: Underestimated, Architecture, Affordability

    Budapest is lovely in summer.

    I would also add Amsterdam and Madrid to this list!

    I loved Budapest and this summer i’ve visited Ljubljana en Zagreb (i love Ljubljana, Zagreb isn’t my city). And about a week i’m going to visit Prague. The rest of this list is on my list

    A great list of beautiful CITIES IN EUROPE all are awesome.

    Ahh, so glad Sevilla made this list! It’s a second home, and yes, definitely a must-see for Spain!

    Your list is pretty accurate: I have been most of the cities you have listed, but I am slightly disappointed there are no Nordic cities included. I believe either Helsinki or Copenhagen should be in the list: both cities are absolutely adorable and must visit places.

    (And I am happy that Brussels was not in the list otherwise I would had questioned the legitimacy of the list… :P)

    What about Amsterdam? I have just been there and I have absolutely fallen in love with that city, as well as having had ridiculously fun time! Cannot wait for Istanbul this weekend 🙂 Everybody does seem to love the Turkish capital, and I cannot wait to go back there!

    I couldn’t agree more with Florence, it is a truly amazing city with surprises around every corner. Budapest is a place that has always interested me and I’m determined one day to go!

    July 21, 2014 at 10:44 pm

    Ahhhh, need to tick some more of these off my list asap! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Completely agree about Budapest – we went there on a whim but had an awesome time!

    July 21, 2014 at 11:05 am

    I agree 100% with Florence and Rome. I have only travelled to Italy so far but went through most of the cities (Milano, Venezia, Firenze, Roma, Bologna, Napoli) as well as a few smaller towns. Although I loved every place we visited, there was something about Florence that stood out to me – it was the perfect combination of old and new. It had history and beautiful architecture while still feeling like a modern day city. I loved the Spanish steps in Rome too! Milan was another favourite of mine – I live in Melbourne and it felt like the Italian equivalent. I’ll be back Italia! Great post Brooke xxxx
