Europe is always a good idea.
However, some places might be a better idea than others next year.
We’ve put together the ultimate European bucket list . From celebrating Finland’s independence to jetting to Bordeaux on a brand new high speed train, here are 10 trips everyone should take in Europe…
It has been said that if you see just one city in Italy, perhaps even one city in all of Europe, make it Rome. With ancient treasures such as the Pantheon, Colosseum, and famed Trevi Fountain, there’s almost more to see and do here than a single trip will allow. In addition to the Roman Forum and the Vatican, you’ll also want to leave time to explore modern Rome through its outdoor markets and restaurants. The Eternal City is the ultimate European destination throughout the year, offering visitors a different experience in every season.
If you see just one city in Sweden, make it Stockholm. The cultural, political, and economic center of the country, the city is one of the most beautiful capitals in all of Europe. Stroll along the cobblestone streets and beautiful waterfront in the medieval city center, or hop a boat and explore the surrounding 14 islands that comprise the archipelago. Don’t miss the renowned Nobel Museum and fascinating Vasa Museum, which houses an intact 16th-century ship that was recovered from the ocean floor.
