With Europe’s travel restrictions being lifted, here are some European destinations to take a trip to this summer!
1. Mallorca, Spain
One of the main reasons to visit the island of Mallorca is for its incredible beaches and coves lapped by turquoise waters. While it’s best known for this, the island is also home to a beautiful coastline, limestone mountains, Spanish architecture, wineries and fresh produce farms, and more. It’s been called the “crown jewel” of Spain’s Balearic Islands by many. The Mediterranean cuisine on Mallorca is known to be delicious, however, the island is specifically famed for its Ensaimada pastries with different fillings.
2. Madeira, Portugal
Known as the “island of eternal spring,” you will love everything about this little Portuguese island. Whether it be the warm sunny weather, beautiful landscapes, or amazing cuisine, Madeira has something for everyone to enjoy. Locals of the island are often seen spending their time fishing, diving, sunbathing, and more. The specialty of Madeira and the reason many tourists travel from far away to the island is Madeira wine. The unique taste comes from repeatedly heating the wine, resulting in a sweet flavor.
3. Dubrovnik, Croatia
Explore the beauty of Dubrovnik, one of the most picturesque cities on the southern coast of Croatia. While the city has amazing beaches, cuisine, and more, it is probably best known for its unique walled Old Town, which juts out into the waters of the Adriatic Sea. The stone buildings with red rooftops is certainly a beautiful sight to see both from afar and while walking through the architecture. While it’s been a popular tourist destination for quite some time, Dubrovnik became the most visited city in the country after it was seen as the backdrop for King’s Landing in the popular series Game of Thrones.
Haven’t seen this one on the map? Well, it’s hard to spot for many tourists, since it’s virtually disguised by its bordering countries (Switzerland and Austria). Home to about 38,000 people, it’s one of the smallest countries in Europe. However, don’t let its size deter you from visiting. A total hidden gem, the country is filled with incredible landscapes, rich culture and history, and wine. Lichtenstein is straight out of a fantasy book with its magnificent beauty.
5. San Marino
San Marino, a small city-state surrounded by Italy, has impressive architecture and world-class gastronomy that will certainly make you want to stay forever. It’s known for its fairytale-like castles, picturesque medieval streets, amazing Italian food, and more. The country is actually the fourth smallest country in Europe, coming in just smaller than Liechtenstein, with a population of about 33,000 people.
