Paris is by far the most popular tourist destination in the world. Over 45 million tourists a year flock to this French city, famous for its food, drink and culture. Many consider Paris to be the most romantic and bohemian city in the world, with a number of art museums, fashion houses and stunning restaurants available within the city itself. Major attractions such as the Eiffel Tower bring in huge hoards of visitors every year – over twenty times the city’s population, in fact.

If you’re looking for a stunning architectural city situated right on the beach-front, look no further than Barcelona. This gorgeous Spanish city boasts a plethora of museums, churches and markets guaranteed to keep you busy all week. The city is easily reached by many different methods of transport – rail and air being most popular. If you plan on visiting in the summer, though, be wary of humidity. In peak times, any temperature higher than 23 degrees Celsius can feel very warm indeed!

Berlin is a stunning, culturally-rich city situated in eastern Germany. Since Germany was reunified after the 1989 fall of the Berlin wall, the city has grown into a cosmopolitan, cultural giant of Europe. It’s highly recommended that you visit the Brandenburg Gate, Bundestag and Berliner Dom for views of the amazing architecture that Berlin has to offer. There’s plenty to see for arty and cultural types, with lots of museums and art galleries situated across the city which is famous for its culture.

London, England, is the archetypal centre of multiculturalism for many Europeans. It is the largest city in the European Union and attracts many millions of visitors every year. Traveling into and around London is very easy with five airports serving the city and the famous underground train system making inter-district travel quick, simple and affordable. Famous sights such as Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London and Big Ben are not to be missed, but there’s so much going on in the city that you’re very unlikely to see it all.

Rome is world-famous for its colossal hold on the rest of the world during the rule of the Roman Empire. Many relics of this time still stand in the form of the Coliseum and Pantheon and the city is still the home of Roman Catholicism as the location of the Vatican City. Rome still exerts much religious and political power across the world and this is apparent in its vibrant architecture and cultural spirit which is evident in every building throughout the city.
