The Ultimate ‘5 Bests’ in Europe…

EuropeAlthough I have traveled through 15 countries in Europe, I’m no expert on Europe. As fortunate as I was to be able to see 15 countries throughout Europe and Eastern Europe this summer, I only had 30 days so my time was limited. I find it fun to summarize my experiences into lists of the “best”. Are you a nerd like me and enjoy writing lists? Whether it’s lists of things-to do-or lists of things I liked, I love writing lists! Based on my experiences here is a rough guide to the 5 “best” in Europe…

Do you agree with some of the places I mentioned? Do you disagree for any reason? Can you think of any other lists of bests that should be added? I don’t think you can go wrong in any place in Europe. I’d love for your to share your list of “bests” with Turquoise Compass in the comments section below or on social media: Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and/or Instagram. I’ll be sure to share/respond/re-tweet your comments! Let’s have a conversation about what’s great about Europe! What are some of your ‘bests’ in Europe?

  1. I’d include London, England in there more, for best destination, history, (and one of my favorite cities). I would not include it for food. 🙂 I’d also add Lucerne, Switzerland for one of my favorite cities for destination, walks, and views. Oh, and Florence, Italy is one of my favorites for history and uniqueness and art.

    • Ah, how could I forget London for its history! Eeeks! There were just so many places to choose from. Florence is fabulous too and the food, art, and history is out of this world! I didn’t get to Lucerne, Switzerland . Do you have any posts on your blog on that location? Thanks for your comments.

    • Awww thanks so much Erika! You are too ‘kind’. I couldn’t help the play on words there with your last name, hehe. I’m glad you found the post useful! Feel free to share, share, share! I was hoping to showcase Europe for every type of traveler (based on my experiences of course), while proving a link with more info if needed. I can only comment on what I have noticed/experienced. What was your favorite “5 best” section in the post?

      • It was definitely: “The 5 Best (& My Favorite) Countries in Europe” Because it is what I love too, and you mentioned Switerland… 😉
        Don’t worry about the play on words with my name. I do it myself! I am very happy for that name. I do these plays myself since the meaning in English is payless! I have a section in my German Website which says “Daily KIND Words”.

      • Very hard to pick only five : ) Depends on what one looks for. Countries could be Italy, Malta, Portugal, Greece and Finland (my home). Cities could be Ronda, Sintra, Syracuse, Milan and Espoo (my home) 🙂

      • Anytime, you are most welcome 🙂 Malta is such a beautiful and warm island. Around the year.
        Portugal I’d visit before or after summer – otherwise very hot.
        Finland is great in the summer (15-30C) and autumn too. Winter can be too cold for some people (-5 – -30)

        Thank you for the replies – I really appreciate them 🙂
        And love your blog!
