Destinations Europe

The ‘Must See’ Photo Destinations Of Europe

European Photo Destinations

Sometimes living in Europe we don’t fully appreciate the variety of countries and cultures on our doorstep. Within a few of hours, we can drive through two or three different countries. Each with their unique landscape, customs and of course, eccentricities.

As well as the food, drink and landscapes it’s the eccentricities we love about driving through Europe. Whether it’s the mayonnaise on the chips in Amsterdam or some bizarre French toilet arrangement, it all adds ‘something‘ to our love of European travel.

During our travels we have collected quite a few photo albums (remember those) and now a large amount of ‘cloud space’ filled with pictures of our trips. These range from the iconic city scenes and famous tourist attractions to the quiet backstreets and places we’ve stumbled upon.

Here, in no particular order are some of our European ‘snaps‘ collected over the last couple of years that remind us of our captivating continent.

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Although we said the list was in no particular order, Amsterdam is one of favourite cities. It is quick to get to and has so much more to offer apart from the stereotypical tulips, red lights and clogs.

Amsterdam Canals

The gabled houses and pretty canals of De Wallen

Although De Wallen is the home of the red light district it is also home to some of the prettiest canals and classic Amsterdam leaning buildings.

Rhodes, Greece

Rhodes is so much more than a cheap beach holiday. Step back to the 15th Century and walk down the gothic Street of the Knights in the old walled town of Rhodes.

Berlin, Germany

A fascinating city with a notorious past. Modern Berlin is now a vibrant, inspiring destination. Try a Currywurst, a sausage covered with ketchup and sprinkled with curry powder – yes that is correct, ketchup and curry powder.

The Brandenburg Gate

Paris, France

One of the most recognisable and photographed cities in Europe. The Eiffel Tower and Sacré-Cœur are unmissable and both offer great views over Paris.

Rome, Italy

Rome, the Eternal City, beautiful and romantic. Unfortunately when you do visit the iconic sites such as the Trevi Fountain or Colosseum it seems as if the rest of the world has had the same idea. So get up early to avoid the crowds and soak up the atmosphere when the streets are quiet.

Palma, Mallorca

Don’t just land at Palma and head straight for the beach resorts. Palma is a stylish ‘must visit’ European city dominated by the gothic cathedral La Seu.

Prague, Czech Republic

The gothic splendour of Prague is especially picturesque at Christmas.

This is only a snapshot of what Europe has to offer. As we visit each new country and revisit others we find there is always so much more to discover.
