1. Portobello Market in London, UK
You might recognize this market from the movie Notting Hill. But that isn’t the only reason Portobello Road is one of London’s best loved. It’s also the world’s largest antiques market.
From Monday to Saturday you’ll find hundreds of shops and stalls selling clothes, antiques, fresh fruit and veggies, food and much more.
2. Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol, UK
There are so many beautiful places to visit in the UK! But one that most American travelers overlook is Bristol. It’s one of the youngest cities in England – 33 years old on average.
The Clifton Suspension Bridge is a jaw-dropping architectural masterpiece. Fun fact: it was designed in the early 19th century for light horse drawn traffic but today it carries over 8000 cars, bikes and pedestrians, daily!
3. Marais District in Paris, France
The Eiffel Tower and the Nortre Dam should always be part of your itinerary in Paris. They are two excellent places to visit.
But please don’t skip a visit to the Marais District. This neighborhood will make you feel like you went back in time to Medieval Paris, with its crooked, cobbled streets, and tiny shops and boutiques. So, why not book your hotel in Marais?
4. Chateaux in Loire Valley, France
If you’ve always dreamed of living in a Castle (or simply visiting one), then Loire Valley is the place to go. It has over 300! Yes, you read that right. 300 castles (or “Chateaux”, the french word for castle).
This incredible place is a UNESCO World Heritage site aswell. You can easily to a day-trip from Paris to visit the most emblematic Chateaux.
5. Miradouro in Rua Augusta’s Arch – Lisbon, Portugal
If you read the Travel segment of your favorite newspaper (or news websites) then you have probably heard about Lisbon, Portugal before. It’s (no longer) one of Europe’s best kept secrets.
Whether you visit it in one day or one week, make sure you don’t miss the incredible view from the top of the Arch in Rua Augusta.
6. Real Alcázar – Seville, Spain
In Seville, you must visit the Real Alcázar – a palace initially built as a fort by Arab Muslim Kings in the year 931. After many updates over the centuries, the palace is now a magnificent architectural masterpiece that mixes its Arab origins and Christian influences.
It was also the filming location for the popular Tv Show, Game of Thrones.
You can easily spend a full day there.
7. Fontana di Trevi – Rome, Italy
The Trevi Fountain is one of the most popular sites in Rome. If you really want that selfie by the edge of the fountain, you will need to brave through the crowd. But you’ll have a great picture! Once you’re there, don’t forget to throw coin into the fountain (with your right hand over your right shoulder for luck).
No wonder this baroque fountain attracts so many tourists every year. The picture doesn’t do it justice. You need to see it for yourself.
8. Rialto Bridge – Venice, Italy
Another bridge in this list. The rialto Bridge is the oldest bridge that crosses the Grand Canal in Venice. It was build in the 16th century and it is probably one of the most photographed today.
