Top European Destinations For All Budgets

Europe boasts some truly amazing cities, so if you plan to take a European holiday you are really spoilt for choice.

Here’s a collection of the most popular European destinations amongst tourists.

Glasgow, Scotland

Glasgow has recently been nominated for Best European Destination 2014. Unsurprisingly, as Glasgow has much to offer, especially during 2014. The Commonwealth Games comes to the city, as does the MTV European Music Awards, all this on top of the cities successful International Comedy Festival and Film Festival.

The city also offers an array of museums and art galleries, mixed in with science, including the Kelvingrove and Glasgow Science Centre.

If you plan to fly from England to Scotland, don’t forget that you’ll need to have your passport with you. If your passport has expired, get in touch with the UK Passport office.

Milan, Italy

You may have thought Rome would surpass Milan as the place to visit in Italy. Well, Milan is having a revival of sorts. It’s Italy’s most modern city and is one of the world’s big fashion capitals.

Milan has more to offer than just shopping and fashion. If you do plan to take a trip to Milan, you may want to consider visiting the Milan Cathedral, Sforza Castle, Pinacoteca di Brera and the Royal Palace of Milan.  Visiting Milan will not leave you disappointed.

Barcelona, Spain

The busy seaport of Barcelona is one of Spain’s main attractions. It’s not only steeped in history, it’s set in some beautiful surroundings. The city is a mix of bars and clubs, restaurants, and cathedrals.

Some of Barcelona’s main attractions are the Gothic Quarter, Camp Nou, Casa Milà, Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art, National Museum of Catalan Visual Art and its very own Arc de Triomf. Also, if you have the time, try and visit the Barcelona Zoo and the Barcelona Aquarium.

Stockholm, Sweden

You may be fooled in thinking that Stockholm is a sleepy fishing town in Sweden, where not much really happens. You could not be more mistaken.

Sure, it is cold, but Stockholm provides you with the perfect mix of technology, music, culture and fashion. Stockholm itself is beautiful, set within an amazing Scandinavian landscape. The quality of life here is outstanding, but you wouldn’t expect anything less from one of the richest cities in the world.

If you decide to visit Stockholm, it is highly recommended you spend some time within Stockholm Palace, the Vasa Museum, the Nordic Museum and, for fans of ABBA, the ABBA Museum.

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Best known for its tolerance towards certain ‘activities’, Amsterdam offers much more than Cafes and Red Light Areas.

The Dutch capital is truly stunning, and you will slowly be absorbed into the city’s culture, and way of life. Why not travel via Bike, just like the locals, to take in the sights, and to feel a part of this vibrant European destination.

There is plenty to do in Amsterdam, why not go to Anne Frank’s House, the Van Gogh Museum, take a stroll in the Vondelpark or visit the Royal Palace? Just make sure you have enough time to see exactly what you want.
