Best European Cities to Visit this Summer


Sometimes it’s not easy to get away for a long beach getaway. But with so many diverse cities just on our doorstep, it’s not all doom and gloom. We’ve put together a list of the best city breaks for your convenience, so you can start planning on your summer itinerary. 

The Culture Seeker

Rome, Italy

Rome certainly wasn’t built in a day which is perfectly evident in this culture-filled capital. Once you’ve tasted a slice of their pizza, don’t expect to ever be satisfied with your London pizzas again. Do take comfortable shoes though as there’s a lot of walking involved if you want to take in all of the sites during your stay.

The 5* Traveller

Santorini, Greece

Technically not a city but this stunning island needed some mentioning. Sun, sea, delicious food and beautiful hotels, this is certainly one for those looking for a more luxurious experience. Perhaps more appropriate for a couple’s retreat rather than a gentleman’s getaway.

The Thrifty Gentleman

Budapest, Hungary

An extremely vibrant city filled with quirky bars and old buildings. Cheap as chips also - you can live like a king even with tight purse strings. If you enjoy escape rooms, this is your ideal destination as they were one of the first to introduce the concept.

The Socialite

Copenhagen, Denmark

Filled with beautiful people, stunning buildings and exclusive venues. This city boasts the perfect balance between traditionalism and modernity. Known for its cleanliness and green-living, less than half the population own cars, so embrace the culture and cycle around the city using one of their communal bikes. This city is filled with socialites and a cliquey crowd, so sometimes it’s a case of who you know, not what you know.

The Wine Connoisseurs

Bordeaux, France

Located in the centre of France’s biggest wine regions, it’s no surprise that this city features under the name that it does. Surrounded by vineyards and hosting numerous wine festivals, this city is the place for the wine connoisseurs of the world.

The Budding Architect

Vienna, Austria

Incredible architecture and a rich heritage, there’s things to do in abundance here. The Natural History Museum is must, in addition to the Palace and Library. Prices are similar to that in London, but it’s certainly one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.
