Most Famous European Cities – Amsterdam

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.

Budapest: Budapest is one of the most famous cities in Europe principally because it’s known for being so beautiful and featuring a large World Heritage Site. It also features 80 geothermal springs and impressive architecture such as the synagogue and huge parliament building.

London: London is one of the most famous cities in Europe because of the large amount of history and sites. There’s the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, The Millennium Wheel and many other instantly recognizable sights. Further to this London has all the other things that are synonymous with England such as the red phone boxes and the guards.

Paris: Paris has a lot going for it that makes it so famous – sites such as the Champs Elysée and the Eiffel Tower for instance, as well as its renown as the most romantic city in the world.

Rome: Again it’s the historical sites and landmarks that make Rome one of the most famous cities in Europe and some examples are the Coliseum, the Roman Forum, Trevi Fountain and the many squares.

Venice: Venice is one of the most famous cities in Europe because of the many canals running throughout the city.

    I have never been to Amsterdam but I can see why it is so famous. I would love to visit there. I think that it being liberal is neat. I hope one day to travel there soon.

    Thanks for listing the most famous european cities. These may come on everyone’s list for a tour. A most famous european cities tour every traveler’s dream. But I guess a tour like this would be quite expensive. Meh, it should be worth it anyways.

    I would love to go to Athens. To me it says a lot about Civilization. And they say the climate there can not be beat. This would be my top pick out of the famous European Cities.

    I couldn’t make a list of most famous european cities. I guess for doing that you need to do research and survey a lot of tourists. Anyway, I would put Rome on top 3. Do you have a list with most beautiful cities in Europe? I bet it would be as interesting as this post.

    I guess Amsterdam is very famous thanks to their laws allowing people to do drugs. Otherwise, it would not be part of most famous european cities. But it is a nice city.

    From your list of most famous european cities, my favorite is Athens. Too bad that their economical situation is not that good at the moment.

    I wouldn’t put Athens in this list of most famous European cities. And if I had put it, I would have put it on the last place. Have you seen what happened there? I think Greek tourism will suffer because of those revolts. Athens will no longer be one of the most famous European cities.

    Paris is surely one of the most famous European cities. In my opinion it is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I like everything about this city. I would love to live there if I can. Who wouldn’t like to live in one of the most famous European cities?

    The city I like most from this list of the most famous European cities is Venice. I’ve been there twice in the last two years. I hope to go there this year too. It is so romantic. It is surely the most famous and the most beautiful from all of the most famous European cities.

    I too think Venice should be on the first place in this list of the most famous European cities. Why did you put it in the last place? In my opinion it is the best. It offers you so many opportunities. It is definitely one of the most famous European cities.

    I would really love to visit a peaceful city, not so crowded and busy and where people are kind and hospitable. Even the most famous European cities do not fulfill the things I’m looking for. All these famous European cities you wrote about are visited by millions or billions of people every year. I don’t stand that rumor and noise and crowdedness… I would like just to find a quite place/city known only by me.

  11. Oreste   July 23, 2011 2:08 am

    I don’t like any of these most famous European cities you wrote about. I too think a peaceful city would be more beautiful even if it is not so famous. Even if doesn’t offer you many possibilities, only the peacefulness it brings is enough.
    These cities, they all should be among the most famous European cities, because they indeed are famous. But I’m too looking for a quite city and that would be the most famous European city for me.

    London is indeed one of the most famous European cities. This is the place I like most. I would really love to live in a city like this. I think I would never get bored of it. It should be first among the most famous European cities.

    There are many cities which should be written in this list of the most famous European cities. For example Amsterdam or Barcelona. These are also two of the most famous European cities and you’ve not mentioned about them. They are also two of my favorite cities. I’m even thinking of moving in Barcelona.

    From this list of most famous European cities I’ve only visited Athens and London. I would really like next summer to go to Paris. It is surely one of the most famous European cities. I’ve seen it only in pictures but it looks incredible. I can’t wait next summer to come.

    One of my favorite most famous European cities from this list is Rome. There are so many interesting things to see there. I’m really passionate about roman culture. Also, visiting Rome made me gaining a lot of friends. People there are very friendly.
    Rome is the number one in my list of most famous European cities.

    I’m not living in any of these most famous European cities. Although I would really like to. I am an active person. I like the agitation and crowdedness. So living in one of the most famous European cities would be like heaven to me.
