Travelling opens up the world to us, and there are countless experiences for us to enjoy, all suited to different people and their interests. There’s plenty of stunning natural sights for nature lovers and rural explorers, and for the more metropolitan among us there are plenty of sprawling cities that offer plenty of thrills for the lovers of urban sprawl out there.
So, what are the best places to visit for the ultimate city trip? Let’s take a look at some of the best cities to visit for a holiday.
The capital of England has a huge amount to offer and is home to some of the most iconic sights in Britain. London has so many things to do and see that you could spend a week there and only begin to scratch the surface. There are scores of museums and art galleries, including the hugely popular National History Museum.
For fans of the royal family, you must make some time to visit Buckingham palace. Along with other attractions like the Globe Theatre, the London Eye and the Houses of Parliament, London is the place to be.
The city of romance is known for its stunning architecture, culture and rich history. It’s also known as the home of Euro Disney!
Paris is ideal for those looking to get some excellent shopping in and experience the wonders of art and culture, and there are some hugely famous attractions to be enjoyed, from the incredible Arc de Triomphe to the haunting beauty of Notre Dame Cathedral, which inspired Victor Hugo’s novel Notre Dame de Paris.
This could be Rotterdam, or anywhere…the city tends to forget forgotten about in the face of the more obviously glamorous cities, but don’t turn it down just yet. Rotterdam is packed with great attractions, and is ideal for museum lovers. Rotterdam has a variety of museums that explore the city’s history in many ways.
The city that never sleeps is perfect for people that thrive on the hustle and bustle. New York offers top notch shopping, dining and entertainment. Take in the Statue of Liberty, visit famous department stores and see if you can take in a show on Broadway. Don’t forget the food, too: a trip to New York is nothing without having lunch in a deli at least once!
The capital of the Netherland’s is famous for all the right (and arguably wrong) reasons, but this laid back city is a must-see for plenty of reasons. There’s the Vondelpark, the royal palace and plenty of museums and galleries as well as simple options for accommodation. It’s also home to the Heineken experience for beer fans! Amsterdam is an incredibly popular tourist choice, and it’s not hard to see why given the liberal atmosphere.
Amsterdam is a great place for people looking for a relaxed and enjoyable experience.
All of these cities have a lot to offer its visitors, and any one of these would make an excellent holiday location.
