1 The Italian Riviera ...

The Italian Riviera ... Wow, this is such a beautiful place. The Cinque Terre is a gorgeous national park, which connects five quaint villages. Walking routes connect the villages and follow the coastline and offer hikes through gorgeous hills. The villages remain unaffected by tourism, but still boast of amazing Italian restaurants and hotels. They are also within easy reach of Pisa, Tuscany and Genoa. I cannot wait to visit here. Italians are so friendly, and the scenery looks divine! Here are some other places to visit in Italy.

2 Tuscany ...

Tuscany ... Another Italian region, Tuscany is simply stunning. The architecture is divine, and the culture is intense. From the historical center of Florence to the Cathedral of Pisa, it's a once in a lifetime experience. Make sure you check out the nature reserves, and enjoy a few bottles of the very famous wine!

3 Lauterbrunnen ...

Lauterbrunnen ... Since a school trip here, I've always wanted to revisit this stunning city in Switzerland. The city always seems to me like it's trapped in time, with it's untouched fountains and springs everywhere, and a huge number of waterfalls and valleys. The area is very popular for skiing, and is surrounded by more small villages. I'd love to revisit here, as it's not only of the most amazing places to visit in Europe but in the entire world!

4 The Greek Islands ...

The Greek Islands ... There are plenty of places to visit in Greece. White homes and blue domed churches, cliffs, beaches and the Aegean sea make this a stunning and very popular place to visit. However, there is more to do here then just sunbathe, and I cannot wait to go back and check out the caves and culture that make the Greek Islands one of the best places in Europe.

5 Hallstatt ...

Hallstatt ... This is a very quaint town, literally just across a lake from an Austrian train station. The world's oldest salt mine is here, and there are plenty of spots to fish and rent boats to drift up the river. Situated between Vienna and Salzburg, here is the perfect place for recuperation before checking out the big cities.

6 Rome ...

Rome ... Every list of European holidays includes Rome, simply because it is one of the most amazing European capitals. From the history to the culture, Rome has a certain magic to it that everybody should see at least once. I hope to go this Summer, and if you do too, make sure you check out the Colosseum and the Arch of Constantine.

7 Venice ...

Venice ... I am a big Italy lover, and Venice is another city that is not to be missed. It has its own share of history, art, and gorgeous buildings, but the allure comes from the the pedestrian only streets and Gondola filled rivers. It's just so kooky, and I cannot wait to visit here again.

8 London ...

London ... I've visited London several times, and I never run out of things to do. It's one of my favorite places to visit in the UK and definitely one of the most amazing places to visit in Europe. The city perfectly captures the essence of British life, and there are plenty of cafes and restaurants to enjoy. There is also the Natural History Museum, the tube and, of course, red phone boxes!

9 Paris ...

Paris ... One of the most visited places in Europe, Paris obviously has a lot to offer. From the fashion to the food, there is also the Eiffel Tower and the Notre Dame. I love the atmosphere here. I spent my first week here checking out the history and revelling in the old style buildings, so make sure that you too visit this amazing gorgeous city! Here's a list of other places to visit in France.

10 Athens ...

Athens ... The capital city of Greece, Athens is filled with scents and sights that you are sure not to forget easily. Just make sure you devote enough time as there's plenty to see, plenty to do, plenty to eat and then some more. It's the perfect place to mix exploring and sunbathing! I cannot wait to visit.

11 Amsterdam ...

Amsterdam ... Despite its reputation, Amsterdam is actually a beautiful city. With it's free running canals, Van Gogh Museum and an explorable Royal Palace, there is enough to keep you busy for weeks, and the city is bursting with life. I can't wait to revisit!

12 Madrid ...

Madrid ... With its lovely temperatures and gorgeous restaurants, Madrid is positively one of the most amazing places to visit in Europe. Spend the day checking out modern art museums, and the nights enjoying tapas and the nightlife. This is a city for everybody, and it's simply unbeatable in terms of simplicity and uniqueness.

13 Barcelona ...

Barcelona ... A beautiful costal town, this is a perfect mix of cities and beaches, meaning you can spend your time mixing fun with relaxation. The Mountain fanfare is unmissable, especially if you have children, and I love the Catalan restaurants. Also make sure you don't miss the Sagrada Famalia, which is the jewel of Barcelona’s crown.

14 Berlin ...

Berlin ... This city is going through a big change, which makes it a fascinating time to visit. I plan to visit Potsdam, just outside Berlin, to see the picturesque houses and gardens, and then visit both the East and the West of Berlin while they still have their separate identities. Also make sure you visit the Einstein Cafe, which is a marvelous teashop set in an old manor house.

15 Cornwall ...

Cornwall ... An odd place to feature, but nestled in England's lazy leg, Cornwall is definitely worth a visit. I love wandering around the fishing villages and peaceful beaches, and the Eden project is well worth the time. There is also the house of King Arthur, who is a big legend. There are magnificent teashops, fish restaurants, and of course, it's the home of the Cornish Pasty!

16 Copenhagen ...

Copenhagen ... This is a gorgeous Scandanvian city, and I cannot wait to visit. With sights such as Hamlet's castle, Tivoli gardens, and the Little Mermaid statue, and plenty of museums and art galleries too, the city just captures simplicity. To top it all off, deposit a coin and borrow a bike to sightsee on, and you even get your coin back when you return! Now tell me that doesn't make it one of the most amazing places to visit in Europe.

17 Florence ...

Florence ... The mighty Medici family kept this city magnificent, and it now hosts several huge art galleries. However, the main attraction must be the Pont D’Vecchio bridge, with its beautiful architecture and thriving jewelry market. I plan to visit here very, very soon.

So that's my list of the Most Amazing Places to Visit in Europe, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I will! Have you got a favourite city, or a story about any of the above?
