Must Visit European Cities That Will Steal Your Heart

One thing you can guarantee on a trip to Europe? Charm, and plenty of it, especially if you venture a bit further outside the major cities you know and love. Our point is that there are tons of enticing destinations worth discovering.

Lavenham, England

Once a wealthy hub of the English wool trade, Lavenham continues to delight visitors with its old-world ambience. The quaint timber-framed cottages and medieval churches are enough to charm the pants off just about anyone.

Motovun, Croatia

Croatia is suddenly on everyone’s travel bucket-list. Perched on a hilltop in central Istria, this handsome village is renowned among gourmands for its truffles. You can also try virgin olive oil and vino here.

Agios Nikolaos, Crete

Dreaming of a Grecian getaway? We implore you to consider Crete, specifically Agios Nikolaos. Removed from the throngs of tourists, it possesses an almost mythical blend of scenic splendor, cultural heritage, and contemporary flair.

Monschau, Germany

Situated in the Eifel region of western Germany, Monschau retains a strong sense of medieval history. Think: cobblestone lanes and half-timbered houses. Of course, not everything is completely frozen in time. Monschau Castle, for example, now serves as a hostel and concert venue.
