The best european destinations to visit for every traveler

We can't deny that Europe is full of destinations. Sometimes because it is so much that we don't know where to go. This post gives you some best places to visit in Europe.

Romantic: Lake Como, Italy

Lake Como

Lake Como 

Venice and Tuscany are lovely, but for a truly romantic European getaway, head to Como. Located about 40 minutes from Milan, the lake is easily accessible via rail or bus. There are five principal towns around the shores of the lake: Bellagio, Como, Menaggio, Varenna, and Lecco. If you're looking for fun and crowds, stay in Como or Menaggio; for isolation and romance, Varenna or Bellagio is the way to go.

Night Owl: Croatia

Skip out on Mykonos or Ibiza and instead party the night away in Split, Rijeka, Zadar, and (during the summer months) at Hvar and Pag Island in Croatia. The summer season brings dozens of music festivals to the area, like Hideout and Ultra Europe, while the major cities tend to take over the nightlife scene when the weather cools down.

Budget: Portugal

Just a five-hour flight from the U.S. East Coast, Portugal is one of the easiest and cheapest European destinations to reach. From the Azores to Porto's wine region, there are a variety of destinations to visit. And with both a favorable exchange rate and new flight routes—JetBlue recently partnered with TAP to offer direct Boston-to-Lisbon flights—there's never been a more affordable time to visit.

Adventurer: Fjord Norway

Norway is quickly becoming the next Iceland for adventure-seekers. Located along the West side of the country, the Fjord Norway area is a bucket-list destination for any adventurer. From glacier hikes and whitewater rafting to bird-spotting safaris and fishing trips, there's an incredible variety of activities along the fjords. Drive one of the 10 National Tourist Routes for the ultimate experience, or opt to take an activity tour through Fjord Tours.

Shopper: Antwerp, Belgium

Belgium's second city may be small, but it's also an underrated shopping mecca. Thanks to its size, you can easily walk the city (or better yet, rent a bike) and have a full-day shopping spree. The city is divided into seven districts: the South District, known for art galleries and local designers; the Fashion District, which hosts the famous MoMu (Mode Museum), international brands, and vintage shops; Wilde Zee, home to boutiques; the Historic City Center, which hosts the Grand Bazar Shopping Center; Meir, home to big chain stores and Festival Hall; the Theatre District, known for specialty stores and antiques; and Station, home to the city's China Town, and also diamond jewelry stores.

Art Aficionado: Spain

From Gaudi's famous parks and buildings sprinkled throughout Barcelona to Madrid's Golden Triangle of Art—the Prado Museum, the Reina Sofia Museum, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum—Spain is home to some of the world's most famous and sought-after art, even in comparison to France and Italy. Make sure to see Pablo Picasso's incredible Guernica at the Reina Sofia (Madrid) and Gaudi's masterpiece, the Sagrada Familia (Barcelona).

Other must-see museums in the country include the Prado Museum (Madrid), the Dali Theatre-Museum (Girona), the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum (Bilbao), IVAM Museum (Valencia), and Park Guell (Barcelona).

Foodie: Copenhagen, Denmark

Foodie-Denmark

Food in Denmark

Nordic cuisine is quietly dominating Best Restaurant in the World awards and taking over the "foodie scene" due to its farm-to-table concept—the idea of minimizing the number of steps ingredients take between the source and the consumer. Denmark itself has a total of 21 Michelin stars awarded to 18 restaurants throughout the country. Copenhagen is at the forefront of this movement with spots like world-famous noma, Amass, Geranium, Manfreds, and Radio. If fine-dining isn't what you're looking for, the coffee shops, street food, markets, and open-faced sandwiches are just as popular—and delicious.

With our guide about European destinations, hope you choose the best trips and holidays in Europe.
