Tips for Most Beautiful Places In Europe To Visit In Summer – Visit Most Romantic Places in Europe

  • All the places are very well connected with trains or roads. Trains in Europe are very well maintained, well connected and run on time. Advanced train tickets or train passes can be purchased before travel dates.
  • Europe experiences peak tourist season in summer, so many hotels and tours can be very expensive. So it is better to book your stays and tours well in advance.
  • Days are very long with a great number of sunshine hours, so you can enjoy your day to the fullest.
  • Due to global warming and environmental change, from the last couple of years, Europe is now experiencing lots of heatwaves or becomes very hot in summer. So be prepared for it. Carry enough sunscreen, umbrellas, hats and goggles. Try to avoid traveling in peak afternoon timings.
  • Though Europe is hilly and due to its location, it can experience cold weather in summer too. So better to carry a light sweater or hoodie during summer too as evenings can be slightly colder.
  • There can be language problems in non-English speaking countries and therefore Google translator will be very helpful to you.
  • Mostly Europe has vibrant city centers and all tourist attractions lie there only, so select your stay nearby or in the city center to enjoy to the fullest.
  • Many cities have well developed & well maintained public transport except some Greek islands and therefore for internal commuting, you can use them to save money and also a great chance to mingle with locals.
  • Every city has some cultural music or dance in Europe which can be well enjoyed or witnessed by booking some special shows with dinner. Experience some local culture by booking some authentic dance or music from that region.

  1. Europe has so many places which are simply stunning and this is just scratching it. I have been to most of the places on this list (I really want to get to Georgia) but I have been to Venice twice and I just think its out of place on this list. Maybe because its over tourist, cruise ships going in and too expensive which overlooks the man-made wonders here. I love anywhere which is mountains and has Alpine villages. As a hiker, I always go for the outdoors first than the cities.

    1. I too love mountains and therefore prefer Alps. But for Venice, next time you visit during shoulder season as sometimes it has peak tourist season. May be you can like at that timings. When I went to Venice, there was nobody and only local people, so enjoyed a lot.

  2. This is such a list of gems and some of the most incredible places on earth, in my mind. There are several that remain very high on my bucket list…Strasbourg, France; Seville, Spain; Lake Como, Italy; Mykonos, Greece. It’s so hard to choose favorites! I especially appreciate your insights and recommendations for tours and where to stay, too. I have bookmarked this post and no doubt will refer to it again many times. Thank you!

    1. While I have been to some if these places in your list what us if great interest to me is all the information on and the other posts too on Mykonos and Santorini which we would be visiting in the summer. Saw your post just at the right time and would help a lot for my planning.

    2. Europe is a dream deatidestin all year round. But summertime makes it all so dreamy. I absolutely love Greece. Was glad to see you included Santorini and Mykonos in the list. The Salzburg and Interlaken are another favourite.

  3. What a great selection of places to visit in the summer. Many of these we have visited. But many we would definitely return to. Mykonos, Santorini and the Greek Islands are definitely on my list for summer travel. The only downside is the crowds. I do like the idea of Switzerland and Austria in the summer. They may be a bit cooler. And maybe a stop a Lake Como on the way. I think we would want to visit many of the places in early season (May) or late (September) to avoid some crowds. Good tips to wrap up.

    1. Thanks for liking this post, and yes to avoid crowds in Europe, you should visit in late April, early May and late September.

  4. Wow! That’s a long list of extremely beautiful places of Europe. I have not been to many of the places that you have listed, especially Mykonos. I find it to be the most beautiful and cost-effective place compared to other places and I always find the white buildings to be so photographic. I have been to few places in Spain that you have listed and I am already in love with them. In the following years, I will try to visit the rest of your listed places.

  5. Great list of countries! My favorite is Lake Como in Italy. Unforgettable experience exploring the lake and enjoying small towns. Santorini in Greece is very nice if it wasn’t so overcrowded in peak season.

    1. I too agree with you Maria, but if you plan Santorini in April then it is not over crowded. I did that time and it was very less crowded and affordable too.

  6. This is timely as we’re planning to visit Europe this summer for our second honeymoon. I just wish all these Ncov issues will be over so, that there would be no more worries whenever we travel.

    These places are really beautiful. We’re planning to go to Prague and will check out the hotels you mentioned.

  7. WOW. Serious wanderlust from this post! I think Seville is the most astounding place I’ve ever been to in my life. It’s totally what one pictures when they think of classic Spain. I’ve having a really difficult time deciding which place to visit in Europe with my husband this summer, but this has given me so many great ideas. I love the idea of visiting the Bavarian Alps and Munich. It wouldn’t have been something I thought of on my own as “romantic” but now it’s on the list. Thanks so much!

  8. Georgia is so green I had no idea! I would love to see the medieval architecture of Strasbourg, France as well. I have been to Santorini and it is lovely so I will have to put Mykonos on my list too. So many new places to visit on my next trip to Europe!

  9. All these destinations sounds wonderful. I’ve never been to Europe but hopefully, I’ll have the chance to visit there someday. Lake Como, Mykonos, Santorini and Sevile are the places that I would want to visit if I get the opportunity to travel to Europe

  10. These are some great places to visit in Europe especially for the ones that have bitten by the love bug. All of them are just so pretty. I have visited some of these places. Lake Como is one of my favorites. And of course, Paris is such an eternal city. Really looking forward to doing some Spanish villa stays.

  11. As a European, I’m happy to report that I’ve visited many of these places, and some in summer. I haven’t yet however been to Strasbourg or Lyiv. I really like the sound of visiting the Carpathian Mountains, and exploring the city centre. It’s going to the top of my European summer list!

  12. I have been dreaming of Greeces cliff side Villages for so long, especially Mykonos blue and white. I really need to book it. I was so close to Strasbourg once and did not stop, huge travel regret. I need a redo to wander the old town. I fell in love with Salzburg, it was great to see it on your list!

  13. Great list!! I am really impressed by the list of yours. Although I wouldn’t want to travel to touristy places like paris and Greece anymore but they do have their own charms and people who haven’t visited them should visit them once in their life. I would surely love to add some of the recommendations you have mentioned.

    1. If you read full post, I have added some unique places like Lviv or Kazbegi for people like you those who don’t want touristy places. So this list is full of unique and popular places too.

  14. Such an impressive post about Europe in the summer! I’ve visited Paris, Malaga, Seville and Prague on this list, and loved the experience. I’ve been dreaming of visiting Greece, especially Mykonos and Santorini. These cities are so charming and summer is a great time to travel to.

  15. Living in London and having travelled a fair bit in Europe I could agree more that Europe is absolutely stunning in summer and the best time to visit. There are so many cities that absolute transform depending on the month you visit it but the summer brings out the best. Mykonos to start with is one of my favourite. you wouldn’t want to visit it in the winter for sure. Paris again has its winter charm but summer is the best time when you can walk around enjoy the architecture and sun. Thanks for sharing some of the best cities for summer visit in Europe.

  16. What a lovely list. I can add so many other places to your list though for Summer 🙂 Never thought Ukraine and Romania to be summer destinations. Mykonos & Santorini are so high on our list. We are planning to visit Greece this summer.

  17. I have been to most places that you have listed on your list of the most beautiful places in Europe and I think that you have compiled a great list. I also appreciate you highlighting great hotels for every price range and tours that are great. Thanks for all the great options and for the lovely photos.

  18. What a great resource Yukti, thanks for the comprehensive list. So many beautiful places to add to my Europe list. I love that you give options for different budgets, very helpful!

  19. My family and I love traveling to Europe during the warm summer months! This is such a great comprehensive list of places to visit. My favorite is Greece – the beaches are incredible!

  20. I’d like to visit every one of these places this summer please. I had my honeymoon in Paris and I agree it’s definitely a romantic destination! I was not at all familiar with Kazbegi before reading this and it looks like a beautiful place!

  21. Great post for someone who is planning to visit Europe for the first or second time. Very informative too. However, I would stay clear of these places in summers because thanks to their uber popularity they get super crowded in summer and you don’t get to enjoy them as you did say 10-15 years back. But visiting them in offseason is a great idea. Less tourists and cheaper.

    1. I too agree with you Archana, but if you select some offbeat or non touristic places that too in summer then you will get both advantages – seeing Europe in summer and also at good rates.

  22. Europe has so many fairytale towns and cities that I absolutely love visiting in the summer. Prague & Santorini would be my top picks from this list but then there are some places which I haven’t been to such as Lake Como and Strasbourg in France which look so magical too, I’d love to visit someday. Need to make it to Lviv also some day. There’s so much left to see, I realise, after reading your post!

  23. Wow! So many places to visit. I’ve been to Europe a few times, but never to these cities. Now I have some places to add to my list. Greece and Prague are already on the list, but these places are so beautiful. The tile work is Seville is amazing! Georgia sounds amazing.

  24. I have been to most of the places you mentioned. I have been to Venice three times, and I love it so much. I walked in the labyrinths of wall and canals, passed many bridges, and got lost. I agree with you that this city is one of the romantic places to visit. I’ve never been to Kazbegi nor anywhere in Georgia. It has beautiful natures from your pictures. I’ll put Georgia on my top list of places to visit. Thank you for sharing this list.

  25. Wow!! And now I wanna just pack up and explore Europe for the rest of the year!! So many amazing places, it’s hard to even choose a favorite, though I think I would start in Prague.

  26. I would be happy visiting any of these places. Aside from France, Greece, Italy, and Spain are my top 3. Your photos are also beautiful!

  27. There are so many beautiful places to visit in Europe. I have been to a few on your list, but have many more to visit. I agree that Salzburg was one of the most beautiful cities in Europe I have visited. I’m glad you included Kazbegi, a lesser known city in Georgia. It looks like it would be a great place to do some outdoor activities and enjoy the scenery.

  28. Europe surely has some of the most beautiful and romantic places in the globe. I am yet to visit that part of the world, but whenever I do so, I wish to visit at least some of these places on your list. I love the mountains, so perhaps I will definitely choose Bavarian Alps. Kazbegi also looks beautiful. Thanks for sharing these beautiful places and also information about these places.

  29. I so wish I had this list with me when i was planning my Euro Trip in the summers from UK last year. Have been to some of the places that you have included in the list, but need to tick off the rest. I personally would love to head to Georgia first. Its so green, rustic and not over-touristy, unlike popular cities like Paris, Venice, Prague etc. Really enjoyed going through this list Yukti.

    1. I am sure that you would love Georgia if you love wild and rustic nature with friendly locals. Thanks for finding this post enjoyable.

    1. Amazing list of romantic places to visit in Europe in summer. I’ve only been to Venice and Prague so far, I think Salzburg and Mykonos are next on my list!

  30. This post makes me want to start planning our next European vacation sooner rather than later. Have visited several of the places you’ve listed and I’d love to return there for exploring them some more. We weren’t able to visit Lake Como or Strasbourg and so those are definitely high on my bucket list. Seeing the Kelipé Flamenco Show while visiting Malaga sounds like the perfect cultural experience.

  31. When you think of the most romantic places in Europe to visit you always think of Paris, but some of the other places I want to visit have to be Santorini and Mykonos, as both those islands look stunning. Georgia is a country I really want to see if I can visit this year and maybe seville which has been on my list for a while. Such beautiful places I want to go and share with my other half.

  32. I like your list. It is ideal for a romantic weekend trip. My favorite cities from your list are Seville, Malaga, Kazbegi, and Lake Como. On my bucket list still are Santorini and Mykonos. I haven’t been to Switzerland yet, and it seems worth visit. I will gladly follow your tips about what to do there.

  33. So many wonderful places top choose from. I’ve heard great things about Mykonos but mainly that it’s a party place and is getting expensive. Lake Como is a beautiful and calm destination, I can recommend this. I’d love to visit Salzburg for the culture and history. I went to Venice as a kid, it would be fab to see it now to appreciate the architecture.

    1. For Mykonos, you can visit in shoulder season then it is very great and also you can enjoy natural beauty with less crowd and more affordable rates too.

  34. Great list! I definitely consider Greece to be on top for having so many romantic places. I just want to travel there over and over again. Paris is also beautiful. I have been wanting to visit Lviv ever since my husband was there on a work trip last year. He really loved it. Nice to see that it made on your list too.

  35. What a thoughtful and wonderful round-up of places to visit in Europe! I am yet to explore the continent in full, so this post definitely serves as a ready reckoner for me. Love that blue tiled steps photograph and I remember reading your post on Interlaken.Hope to visit all sometime soon in the future!
