My Top 5 Must-See Cities in Europe

Hi chums!

I've been really lucky in the fact that I've been able to travel so much throughout my life. I've written a fair few travel posts here on my blog already but today I wanted to do something a bit different a tell you about the 5 European cities which I have visited that I have loved the most.

If you haven't been to any of these places I would really recommend going and here's why...:

1. Amsterdam

I went to Amsterdam in June 2015 and instant loved this city. It's full of canals and cute Dutch houses. If you think that bikes in Amsterdam is a stereotype then you're serious mistaken! I couldn't believe how many bikes were on the road, chained to the sides of the street, and I even saw a car park just for bikes (a bike park?). This is something which makes Amsterdam really unique and if you go there I recommend grabbing a bike from a rental shop and seeing the city how the locals do!

My 3 favourite places to visit/ things to do here were: Zaanse Schans windmills, boat trip along the river, riding bikes around the park

2. Venice

I cannot describe my love for Venice. It's possible my favourite city in Europe that I've been to so far. There isn't a car in sight and the old building and streets which the canals run through are so beautiful! The one thing I would say about Venice is that if it's raining there isn't too much to do, so if you're going I would choose one of the summer months.

My 3 favourite places to visit were: Scala Contorini del Bovolo (bit tricky to find, but worth it!), Burano and la Piazza di San Marco

3. Berlin

I have been to Berlin three times now and each time has made me fall in love with this city more! I don't think it matters what time of year you go here - just pray that it doesn't rain! There is so so much to do so if you're planning on seeing everything then you won't have any time to sleep! I would recommend going to this amazing historical city for 3/4 days or longer if you have time to spare!

My 3 favourite places to visit here were: the Reichstag dome, the Berlin Wall and the Berlin cathedral

4. Salamanca

Salamanca is a seriously underrated city in Spain. It is just north-west of Madrid and is so old and beautiful. The Plaza Mayor is the most amazing place to be. I could literally spend my whole day there! Salamanca is known as a great place to go if you're learning Spanish and I can definitely agree with this. I've been there twice for a language course and have had such a great time both times!

My 3 favourite places to visit/ things to do here were: visit the Plaza Mayor, go up the cathedral and go on a pedalo on the river

5. London

I couldn't do this post without mentioning my hometown (ok, so I live 30 mins outside, but it still feels like home :) ). I think I sometimes forget about London as such an amazing city just because I live so close, but it really is one of my favourite cities! There is so much to do in this city, in all weathers (although guaranteed 99% of the time it's raining!)

My favourite things/places to visit here are: shopping in Oxford Street/Regents Street, wandering around Covent Garden and going to take photos around Notting Hill

Love as always
