VIENNA, AUSTRIA.

Vienna Austria, top destinations in Europe

 

Luxury comes first

 

Luxurious accommodation in Vienna almost invariably means living at the heart of the city. You’ll find exclusive hotels especially along the Ring, which, after all, is where most of the elegant former palaces are. The first district is home to a wealth of five-star accommodations including the Imperial, Grand Hotel, Bristol, Sacher, Palais Coburg Residenz and Marriott Vienna. At the end of 2010 the Luxushotel Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom opened in a spectacular high-rise designed by star French architect Jean Nouvel on the banks of the Danube Canal.

DUBROVNIK, CROATIA.

Dubrovnik Croatia, top destinations in Europe

 

Dubrovnik in one day

 

Make sure to begin your brief visit to Dubrovnik with a promenade in Stradun or Placa, the main street, while getting the first impressions of one of the Mediterraneans most beautiful cities. The astonishing city of stone is surrounded with 1,940 m long stone walls. A tour of the worlds second most frequented open-air museum will definitely take your breath away.

 

The fantastic views will inspire you to take some photographs, and the sights that you will capture will continue to amaze you over and over again.

PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC.

Prague Czech Republic, top destinations in Europe

 

Prague built on seven hills

 

Since the Middle Ages Prague has been famous as one of the most beautiful cities of the world and has been attributed adjectives such as “golden“, “hundred-spired“, “the crown of the world“.

 

The unique character of the city is also partly a consequence of its natural environment: Prague, similar to Rome built on seven hills, was built on nine hills along the Vltava river, which flows through the city for a distance of 31 km and forms a perfect unit with the city.

BRUSSELS, BELGIUM.

Brussels, Belgium, top destinations, Flower carpet, Tapis de Fleur, Europe

An amazing event in Brussels, one of your 10 best places to visit in Europe!

A dash of humour and a pinch of self-mockery


There's just something about Belgium. Maybe it's the friendly & welcoming people who with three official languages still find it easy to converse in English, the 4th unofficial language. Or perhaps it's the incredible cuisine found in the vast array of restaurants where each meal seems better than the last. 

 

Brussels is multicultural, plurilingual, its population is cosmopolitan and the unexpected awaits you at every turn. No matter what time of year you visit, there's always something happening : creativity here is contagious, good food is easy to find and the mood is festive. Add a dash of humour and a pinch of self-mockery and you have the recipe for the city's legendary conviviality.

BERLIN, GERMANY.

Berlin Germany, top destinations in europe

 

There's always something going on in Berlin


Visitors to Berlin don't tend to spend much time in their hotel rooms. Not with more than 9,000 restaurants and snack bars, more than 100 theatres with performances almost every day, and three opera houses to choose from.

 

The German capital also has more than 175 museums, countless cabaret and variety theatres, and more than 100 concert venues – in Berlin there is certainly no excuse for not going out.

BUDAPEST, HUNGARY.

Budapest Hungary, Budapest photo, Budapest, Budapest European Best Destination 2012, Best destinations Europe, Europe travel, Meilleures destinations en Europe, top destinations, travellers' choice

 

Cruise on the river

 

The Danube, which divides Budapest into two parts, is perfect for tourists to become acquainted with the most important sights slightly away from the hustle of the city centre, but still literally in the middle of the city. Of course you cannot see everything from a boat, but that is not the purpose of the cruise. You can select from a wide range of daytime cruises, night cruises or boat excursions of various durations and on boats with different sizes.

LISBON, PORTUGAL.

Lisbon Portugal, Lisbon photo, Lisbon pictures, Lisbon European Best Destination 2012, Best destinations Europe, Europe travel, Meilleures destinations en Europe, top destinations, travellers' choice

 

Smells good, smells of Lisboa


The good weather and long days are an irresistible invitation to discover and experience the city with a relaxed and leisurely walk of its seven hills, taking breaks at the various sightseeing spots along the way. The viewpoints of Graça, Senhora do Monte, Santa Luzia, São Jorge Castle or São Pedro de Alcantara are just some of the scenic spots of Lisboa, where you can admire the most beautiful panoramic views of the Portuguese capital, also known as "Cidade da Luz Branca" (City of White Light).

FLORENCE, ITALY.

Florence Italy, top destinations in Europe

Florence: art city or art work?

 

The historic centre of Florence contains such a wealth of masterpieces that it is difficult to separate the city from its art works. In 1982 it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, the motivation being that it encapsulates the whole history of the city, from the ‘Roman quadrilateral’ in the Piazza della Repubblica area to the narrow streets of the medieval city, the splendours of the 16th-century Pitti Palace and the changes wrought at the time when Florence was capital of Italy

The official Facebook page for Florence


 

 

 

EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND.

Edinburgh Scotland, top destinations in Europe

Edinburgh's views

 

Edinburgh is surrounded by hills which are perfect for a stroll and give a great outlook. Climb Arthur’s Seat, an iconic extinct volcano in Holyrood Park, or try the easy and short route up Calton Hill, just off Princes Street. This is the site of what should have been Scotland's National Monument but the city ran out of money so the columns are all that was completed. Nelson’s Monument, in the shape of a telescope, is well worth the climb to the top. A ball at the top of its mast drops simultaneously with the firing of the One o'clock Gun from Edinburgh Castle.

    Thanks for having voted in my town. PORTO, besides all good things already described,has a great history ( the reason why we called " Invicta " and a mix of aristocracy with common people. We are very friendly, sincere, hard-working, loyal, and also good artisans. Our people is really very open, social and genuine.
    I shall say, please come and and confirm by yourself.

    Is this a Portuguese site or is just Portugal one of the very best destinations?
    In 2010, Lisbon was also considered the best destination in Europe, meaning 2 portuguese cities in 3 years? Where is Paris and other capitals?
    Due to this I'm going to visit both cities just to confirm it...

    Lisboa is the capital but PORTO is the soul of Portugal. In the city that gave its name to Portugal (and to the Port wine), you can enjoy wonderful food, taste the excelent portuguese table wines, walk along old and very typical places, be surprised by beautiful sightseeings, find simple and very friendly people, visit many historical buildings and museums,...!
    Just go! You'll love it!

    BRUSSELS, BELGIUM in a high position? WHY? I don't drink beer any more but I did when I went, and apart from the Grande Place, there's very little of interest, hardly anything compared to the other cities on the list, PLUS many other parts of Belgium are far nicer to visit, if one can get ones head out of ones rear end and simply take an hour's train somewhere else - complicated, huh?
    I think cities are overrated, but if you're going to choose one, choose one with a majority of nice architecture, good street culture and good weather. Portugal probably works in this regard, even if the beer isn't up to Belgian standards by a long way (same goes for Spain and Italy, shit beer but good wine and everything else, mostly!)

    O problema de não sermos considerados melhores mais vezes quanto a mim e já tendo viajado por várias capitais europeias, é simplesmente o facto de não preservarmos os nossos centros históricos, vão a Paris, a Madrid, a Londres, a Amesterdão etc e vão ver que é raro verem uma casa abandonada e com mau aspecto!
    Temos uma das melhores gastronomias do Mundo e um dos melhores, senão o melhor, clima da Europa e uma história com mais de 869 anos, sendo a 2ª nação mais velha da Europa, portanto uma série de trunfos que nem nos damos conta do quão importantes são e o problema é que não nos sabemos valer deles... arranjem o património e vamos ser um dos melhores destino turísticos da Europa!
    Por mais que o Porto e Lisboa ganhem prémios de melhore destinos... a verdade é que os turistas vão invariavelmente mais a Espanha, Inglaterra, França e Itália... e nós que temos preços tão baixos e uma hospitalidade tão boa em comparação com esses países estamos a uma grande distância deles da tabela, isto tem que mudar! Apostem no turismo, é a herança que os nossos antepassados nos deixaram!

    but... Much more responsability to all of us!!!
    All together, let's make the city much more clean!!!
    For example:
    Gardens without garbage...
    Gardens without shit...
    Gardens only with trees, grass, flowers and many, many children!!!

    number *85 must be English, Edinburgh is a great city!, Enjoyed it much more than London!. loads to do, could spend weeks seeping in the city!, I was almost put of Edinburgh by London people telling me its not good! haha glad I did not listen.

    Its a shame no Scandinavian cities.. by far the cleanest..

    I wish Bosnia made the list for once. So much negativity from the war back in 95 is taking the attention of the beautiful places the country has to offer. I personally loved it there and i think it should be given a chance.

    I see in your post, Porto is #1. Are you sure that this is best city for travel? Or maybe this mean cheap travel? I'm better going to Paris or London...

    Porto, Lisboa, Leiria, Sintra, Braga, Guimarães....there are lots of Portuguese cities that are are really worth a visit...all Portugal for that matter is a top spot touristic country!! We have more palaces, museums, castles, monasteries, churches than France, Italy, Spain, Germany by comparising with the area of those countries, plus we have awesome weather and wonderful beaches. I bet Portugal will be one of the top 5 countries to visit in Europe in a couple of years.
