  1. Corsica Island, France

Despite being very famous for the Eiffel tower and the urban cities, France has so much more to offer to its visitors. The island of Corsica is the fourth largest island of the Mediterranean and is an amalgamation of French sophistication and Italian nonchalance. The island is full of golden sand, beautiful views, and enchanting coastal villages and towns, making it an ideal place for your summer holidays with friends and loved ones.

  1. Azores, Portugal

To witness the geological drama during your vacation, there is no better place other than the Azores, which does it better. The place is filled with densely forested islands surrounded by cliffs that look like they are rising out of nothing. The island is filled with volcanic craters, sulphuric hot springs, and countless whale species. Sao Miguel is an ideal place to stay while visiting the Azores to enjoy the boutique hotels, tasty food, and relaxing among the incredible natural landscapes.

  1. Timișoara, Romania

Romania is regarded as Little Vienna because of its circular city centre and great Habsburg Secessionist buildings. Timișoara is a student town and is not the usual tourist spot for a lot of visitors as it does not have the posh European vibe to it, but this is what makes this place so unique and worth the visit. Timișoara hosts a number of festivals all year long, from music to films. It also has beautiful art galleries and an opera house, tickets to which are equivalent to the cost of an IPA in London.

  1. Lisbon, Portugal

Constantly ranked as one of the most popular cities in the world, Lisbon never gets old. Every year, millions of tourists make their way to this lovely city, and there is no wonder why. Lisbon has it all, from museums to history to plenty of restaurants offering delicious food, such as Portuguese beef, to some of the best bars in the country. Some of the must-see attractions in Lisbon include the Alfama District, the city of Sintra, the National Tile Museum, St George’s Castle, and the Monastery of Jerónimos.

  1. Slovenia

Slovenia is located right in the middle of Italy and Croatia. Both of the countries are filled with tourists all around the year, but this place, gladly, is not overrun by visitors. We all are familiar with Switzerland’s beauty, but Slovenia is literally a heaven on earth with its glacier-fed lakes, turquoise rivers, and snowy peaks. Lake Bled is one of the most peaceful spots here. The best thing about Slovenia, apart from the beautiful landscape, is that the place is blissfully unbusy most of the time, so it is an ideal getaway for people who love serenity.

  1. Dubrovnik, Croatia

Dubrovnik must be visited by all the Game of Thrones fans at least once in their life. The place has strange magic to it with its limestone citadel on the Adriatic and its harbor towns of the Dubrovnik Riviera. In the north, it features Ottoman stone bridges, and fairy-lit millhouse restaurants. Kravice Waterfalls are also located in Dubrovnik, surrounded by swimmable turquoise lagoons.

  1. Skåne, Sweden

Skåne is a county in Sweden and lacks the coverage it deserves because of the buzz surrounding Malmö and Copenhagen. The place is worth exploring because of its charming lakes, coastal towns, and wineries. The city is often referred to as Sweden’s larder. In the south of the city, you will come across beautiful beach towns with cozy beach huts. Skåne provides its tourists with a sense of provenance.

  1. Crete, Greece

Crete is a lesser-known Greek Land that is sure to leave your soul filled with so much nature and history. History lovers will find themselves in heaven since Crete’s history dates back to the Minoan civilization. Tourists can start their journey from the Palace of Knossos, where the Minotaur was born. Also, take a trip to Mount Ida – according to mythology, this is the place where Zeus was raised. Make sure to visit Zeus birthplace, the cave of Dikteon Andron.

  1. Hallstatt, Austria

If you are visiting Europe in the winter season, don’t miss the fairytale village of Hallstatt. Surrounded by snow-covered peaks located on the edge of a stunning lake, Hallstatt lives up to its reputation as one of the most breathtaking villages in the world. Although the village is not too big, there are plenty of things to keep you occupied here. Walk to the Skywalk, where you’ll witness the incredible views of the lake and village, surrounded by mountains. Altaussee Salt Mine is another great place to learn about the town’s history.
