TOP 10 MOST BEAUTIFUL AND AUTHENTIC CITIES IN EUROPE TO VISIT

After visiting a large part of Europe, I present you my top 10 of the most beautiful cities that have left a memorable impression. The top is composed only of the cities I visited, I’m sure there are other beautiful cities out there that I have not yet had the chance to visit. For these I’m waiting for your suggestions in the comments section. We have included only the cities that have preserved their character and authentic beauty, not including those who have sacrificed their personality just for the sake of tourism (I can give Venice as an example of this)

10 Paris – France

I wasn’t sure if this city deserves to be included in the top because it can also easily be included in the list of the most overrated cities to visit and depending on the area you stay, it can also be included in the list of the most dangerous cities to visit. In principle, the French capital lives on the laurels of the past, but although the city of lights doesn’t shine so bright as it used to, it is still quite bright and appealing. The central area that you see as a tourist is still very beautiful and an example of urban planning to be looked up to. Also, the city offers a very large concentration of attractions that will keep you busy for at least a week, so it’s always a safe bet for a successful holiday. Protests, strikes and locals who do not speak English and who do not stand criticism towards their city or their country, all make sure you get a really authentic experience.

9 Valletta – Malta

Salerno – Italy review

A pitoresque little city in southern Italy , Salerno retains it’s medieval architecture and historic center. Squeezed between the mountains and the sea it offers great views and landscapes everywhere you look. Nice old architecture at the base and modern bridges and motorways up on the mountains. And being a true  Italian city , the atmosphere is as nice as it is annoying sometimes.

Each day from 12 to 16:00 the hole city dies , nothing moves and all the shops close they’re doors during the siesta hours , that means that in you’re few free hours to visit around everything is closed!! Another annoying fact is that there are absolutely no exchange offices around , and on top of that no shop will Continue reading “Salerno – Italy review”

La Spezia – Italy

La Spezia – a port city located in the north-west of the Italian peninsula , near Genova. It’s a double resort , in the summer tourists come to the beautifull beaches located near the city and in the winter the close distance to the Alps make it a great place to go skying. The city is sorrounded by mountains , at sea level there is a mediteranean feel and as you go up , get’s a mountain feel look. Great city worth stopping if you’re in the area.

ps: because it is Italy after all some Romanian immigrants were sure to be found , i found them in port lashing containers on the ship i was on 🙂
