As the year is now well past the halfway mark, adventurous travelers are already picking out their Christmas holiday destinations. But this can be a tricky task. With so many incredible locations to visit, settling on just one can be challenging. Do you head into the wilderness of Africa, settle for a luxury beach in the States, or maybe just do a bit of backpacking around your local tourist attractions? So many options, but such limited time.

Don’t worry! We’ve picked out a few of the best travel destinations in and around Europe for you to explore when you take your annual break.


You probably didn’t need to be told this, but Italy is hands down one of the most incredible travel destinations in the world. It has everything, from some of the finest cuisine your taste buds could ask for, to breath-taking art collections, all nestled beautifully into scenery that is as pretty as a picture. There is simply no substitute for a true Italian experience, and to say it should be top of every travelers list is no an exaggeration.

Make your booking now if you can, and be rest assured that you’ve made a wise decision. Yes, it is well worth what will likely be a pricey holiday, but the dreamy memories will no doubt stay with you for a lifetime. If you’re keen to splash out a bit, you may want to spend some time at a casino online to see if you can win big and give your budget a boost. That way, you can enjoy every delight this destination has to offer.

If Italy isn’t on your radar, making a booking for Paris is likewise a safe bet. They don’t refer to Paris as the City of Light for nothing, and there is as much to experience here as there is in any Italian city. The food is likewise outstanding, museums equally as impressive, and you couldn’t hope for more picturesque scenery.

Plus, of course, Paris also has the Eiffel Tower, and this is a landmark that everyone should see for themselves at least once in their lifetime.


Greece is another stunning destination that will capture your heart. What makes Greece stand apart from other European destinations is the palpable sense of ancient history in every bit of architecture, and every street corner. A traveler could get lost for hours exploring the streets alone, only to find themselves stumbling upon the quaintest cafe in all of Europe.

Make your booking now, and proudly cross “visit the birthplace of democracy” off your bucket list. You won’t regret it. Plus, with so many pristine beaches, you’ll come home with a tan!


Long having been lost in the shadow of Spain, Portugal is now rising as a world-class tourist attraction all of its own. Much has changed in Portugal in the last two years, from the opening of amazing museums, to the development of a thriving microbrewery scene. Plus, the Portuguese culinary situation is exploding, with a number of new world-renowned restaurants having opened in the last year. Need a little more motivation? How about the fact that, in 2016, 300 beaches were awarded Blue Flag ratings. Starting to get the picture?

It need not be said that one of the major draw cards of holidaying here is that Portugal is incredibly affordable. So, if Italy and Paris were making you a little hot under the collar in terms of cost, you’ve just found your European holiday alternative! Keep in mind, though, that the country is quickly becoming one of the travel hot-spots of the world. So if you want to be sure you’re going to get a prime spot, you’ll need to book sooner rather than later.
