One of the most beautiful cities in the world, according to popular opinion, is the capital of Tuscany, an Italian area. I have to admit that after going a few times over the years, I completely concur. There is so much Renaissance past still being lived today in Florence. You can excuse yourself if you accidentally cause yourself whiplash while trying to take it all in by looking in all directions.

Make sure to give yourself enough time to leave the major tourist route after seeing the Cathedral and the Ponte Vecchio. A completely different world is waiting for you as soon as you pass one of the numerous bridges. You can find public parks, libraries, and smaller art venues outside of the city center. It is one of the Most Beautiful Cities In Europe…

A feast for the senses awaits those who travel to Germany for the first time. Munich, however, is the most stunning metropolis in Germany, and it should be on your travel itinerary.

This is consistently one of our top choices for the most stunning towns in Europe. It is one of the Most Beautiful Cities In Europe…

You might mistakenly believe you were in a real-life storybook in Bruges because it is such a stunning city.

One of the most dynamic towns in Europe, Barcelona, quickly won my heart.

Barcelona’s countless architectural wonders are unsurpassed in terms of beauty; the city is a blank postcard ready to happen. It is one of the Most Beautiful Cities In Europe…

Mykonos, Greece


Mykonos is one of those cities I knew I’d fall head over heels in love with but for one reason or another, it took me some time before I finally visited Greece. This party center is as fun as it is beautiful – but for the best of Mykonos, be sure to explore in the early hours of the morning before the crowds take to the streets. It is one of the Most Beautiful Cities In Europe…

 Alesund, Norway


When you hear people talk of the prettiest city in Norway you never really hear them say Alesund. I’m changing that. Having had Bergen on my bucket list for quite some time, I was surprised to see the incredible Art Nouveau architecture of Alesund. And quite frankly, I was stunned that I had not stumbled upon it sooner. Having rebuilt after a fire in 1904, the city has managed to retain its authenticity and charm with ease. and beautifull womens live in there. It is one of the Most Beautiful Cities In Europe…

Ghent, Belgium

Ghent will steal your heart in an instant. This university city is an interesting one: old in looks but young at heart, with a thriving student population that makes this a really fun city to visit.

Rome, Italy

I will always cherish my first trip to Rome. At the age of 17, I was with my father, and that city may be the one that I recall in the most detail. We were both in awe of the past when we first traveled to Europe, and now that we have returned, it almost seems like a dream. There is only one thing I would do differently after spending a week seeing the sites and indulging in carb-induced comes, and that is to wear better walking shoes. It is one of the Most Beautiful Cities In Europe…

Warsaw, Poland

Despite being the capital, Warsaw is not the first city many travelers think of when visiting Poland. I too had fallen into this trap and considered Krakow the only city I desperately wanted to visit on my first time in the country some ten years ago. As it turns out, Warsaw is just as (if not more) beautiful to explore and has a wonderful old town that comes to life over the Christmas period. It is one of the Most Beautiful Cities In Europe…

Reykjavik, Iceland


Reykjavik was considerably smaller than I anticipated, but it was also more stunning than I could have envisioned. Particularly the locals are very welcoming and proud of their country; they are curious to know where you are from and what led you to Iceland. The best way to get around is to walk the streets; just remember to let yourself get lost because that’s when the magic occurs! It is one of the Most Beautiful Cities In Europe.

When I arrived in Antwerp I wasn’t sure what to expect because quite frankly, I hadn’t heard a thing about it.
