Fully vaccinated Americans will be able to vacation in the European Union this summer. Ask us if we are excited? Well, let us tell you this: “Excited” is an understatement. In celebration, we share some of our favorite cities below.
Which one of these destinations will you be headed to first? Slide through our favorites below. ⬇️
We love La Muralla Roja — a postmodern apartment complex designed by Spanish Architect, Ricardo Bofill. Pro tip: The all-pink and all-blue façades on property make for the perfect Instagram picture.
Known for its Catalan flair and Antoni Gaudi-blueprinted architecture, this Mediterranean city is as charming as they come.
Located in Southern Italy, Matera is an inimitable destination. Make sure to check out the Sassi area, which hosts a complex of cave dwellings carved into the mountainside.
This goes without saying, but the Amalfi Coast, its curvaceous cliffs, and hillside villages replete with vibrant Italian culture are Europe musts.
Unarguably one of the most beautiful cities in the world, café culture, the Eiffel Tower, and Luxembourg Gardens are calling our names. We can hear it (in a charming French accent, of course).
Santorini and Mykonos are the Greek Islands on most radars. That said, Paros needs to be on there too; among many other reasons, its stunning beaches, pearl-white villages, and cobblestone streets are just a few.
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
The Dutch city’s extensive canal system — an attribute which has earned it the nickname of “Venice of the North” — along with its gabled building façades, parks (our favorite is Vondelpark), Anne Frank House and Van Gogh Museums, are just a few of its many delights.
In addition to stunning Scandinavian design, musts include a visit to the 13th-century Storkyrkan Cathedral, Kungliga Slottet Royal Palace and the Nobel Museum, which is all about the Nobel Prize.
A colorful port city on the Baltic Sea, this destination is teeming with picturesque cathedrals, hip cafés, and historical sites like Royal Way, a famous promenade rue for Polish Kings.
