Europe is filled with fantastic sites and fascinating culture and history. Sometimes it can seem almost as though there is too much to visit to ever really feel like you can tick ‘Europe’ off of your list. However that said, there are some places in the continent that are more famous than others and that are particularly high on most people’s ‘must see’ lists. This is particularly true of many of the cities, and it’s no surprise that Europe is so popular for city breaks. Here we will list some of the most famous European cities for you to consider visiting.
Amsterdam: Amsterdam is one of the most famous European cities for several reasons. It is first and foremost a very modern city, but at the same time it’s famous for being very liberal which makes it a great destination for stag and hen parties.
Athens: Athens is another of the most famous European cities and partly because of its expansive history – a hub of early civilization and progress. It also has a great climate which makes it great for holiday makers.
Berlin: Berlin is a very modern city that is kept highly clean and is particularly famous for its cobbled streets, war memorials and of course the chocolate. Like Paris and London it’s also one of the most famous cities in Europe due to the role of Germany on the world stage.
