Florence is the capital of the Italian Tuscany region. If you are an admirer of vintage art and architecture then you are certainly at the right place. Florence is rich with artistic tourist attractions including Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral “Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Flower” with panoramic scenery dating back to the 15th century with sophisticated exterior decorations that represent one of the earliest events of the Italian renaissance. The Galleria dell’Accademia “ Gallery of the Academy” displays ancient sculpture works by the infamous Michelangelo and other Florentine paintings from the 15th and 16th centuries. Boboli Gardens is the right place to head if you are looking for an open-air view and a relaxing outdoor walk. The gardens have been repeatedly stretched and expanded to entail larger green areas, Italianesque statues, and multiple fountains.
2. Dublin, Ireland
Dublin is the Irish capital city revealing itself at the east coast of Ireland bordered by the River Liffey on one side and the Wicklow mountains on the other. Make sure, if you ever make it to Dublin, not to miss out on paying a visit to the Wicklow Mountain Park. Kilmainham Gaol Museum is one of the most reviewed and visited destinations in Dublin. It symbolizes the Irish rebel movements where national rebellions from the Irish Civil war were detained and sometimes executed at this 18th-century prison.
3. Paris, France
Imagine spending a day at the “City of Lights” strolling along the Champs-Elysées, the Seine and admiring French icons like the Eiffel tower before savoring a mouth-watering chocolate croissant in a sidewalk café. Tapping off the evening at the Moulin Rouge for a breath-taking musical show is just the perfect holiday for desperate romantics.
At Nessebar or “Sunny Beach”, you can book the sight-seeing trip from Nessebar port to Saint Anastasia Island Catamaran Cruise. You can also visit Old Nessebar or the Plovdiv old town for an authentic feel of the Bulgarian habitation. Plovdiv is settled at the shore of the Marista river, at sight from there you can gaze at the all-green Sredna, Chirpan heights, and Rhodope mountains. With its almost tropical humid climate, Blugaria makes a perfect summer holiday destination.
5. Prague, Czech Republic
The Czech capital famous for its Bohemian crystal vases and glass work antiques. Make sure to visit the Old town square for a view of the medieval heart of the city bustling with tourists on its cobblestone sidewalks. The best way to cruise through Prague’s touristic sights is to go on a Vltava Jazz river cruise to enjoy the city while listening to heart-warming jazz.
6. Santorini, Greece
With an intriguing mix of Mediterranean and European tastes, Santorini makes a tourist destination for both budget-friendly trips as well as luxurious trips. You can kick-off the day by cruising the Volcanic Islands of Santorini for a peaceful morning before heading to its most well-known landmarks like the Ancient Thera and the cultural village. Make sure to plan a hike along the Trail Fira, Oia just in time to watch the sunset at this most magnificent spot in Greece.
Another breathtaking destination for tourists who would love to catch a feel of both the Mediterranean and European cultures. Towards the South, have a peak into The Mezquita of Cordoba “Mosque of Crodoba” for fascinating Arabic calligraphic art and architecture dating back to the Islamic Era of Spain. Al-Hambra castle was built in the early 14th century and overlooks the city of Granada, another major city of the Islamic area with heavy olive trees. Towards the North, we move on to the Europan face of Spain in Barcelona and Madrid and for crazy footballers, you are not to miss not on visiting Stadio Santiago Bernabeu in Madrid and capturing a photo with their almost real displays of Cristiano Ronaldo and other team players.
