It’s very hard for me to complain about any destination in Europe. Each has something to offer, whether or not it is worth devoting an entire afternoon to. I understand how difficult it can be to narrow down all of the places you want to see on your European vacation. You want to make the most out of every day and only waste time at the beach.
There are certain destinations in Europe that everyone wants to visit. Paris, Rome, Barcelona. You probably know, because you probably want to visit them as well. As wonderful as many of these destinations are, there is no doubt they will be swimming with tourists, even during the off-peak seasons. There are a few locations in Europe that weren’t necessarily on the top of my travel list, but after visiting them I can recommend to everyone. In some of these locations, I had such a magnificent time that I would return to them before seeing Paris, Rome, or Barcelona for a second time.
I know, what a cliché.
But it was a great excuse to stuff my face full of pasta, pizza, and great wine while in Italy.
I made it to Italy! This is one of the destinations I have been dreaming about visiting for years. When I started planning my three month European journey, Italy was at the top of my list. I wanted my visit to be perfect. And although we know perfection is unattainable, just having my feet on the cobblestone in this country was perfect enough. I planned to arrive in September, check. When the peak season had died down a bit, check. And the weather would be ideal as it begins to cool down, check.
