Best Things to Do in Europe
Adventures and excursions abound in Europe
Wondering what to do in Europe on a holiday? From winter sports in the Alps to water sports in Sardinia, there’s no shortage of things to do in Europe. While global cities stand out for their distinct blend of old history and new vibes, European countryside is always ripe for exploration and offer more that travelers expect. Cities in Western Europe have a remarkable roster of iconic landmarks, art galleries, and historical neighborhoods to wander in for weeks, if not months. Taking gondola rides, visiting happening pubs, catching an opera performance, or a romantic dinner by the Danube or Seine River are the top things to do in Europe at night.
Let's face it. One lifetime may not be enough to cover all the best things to do in Europe. The city of Glasgow has a vibrant arts scene while Edinburgh has its own distinct attraction – besides having beautiful architecture – in the form of an extinct volcano. Amsterdam gets all the tourist crowd it’s hyped for and rightly deserves. However, Rotterdam is another place that is often overlooked despite having a buzzing nightlife and museums. Brussels has a deep-rooted coffeehouse culture that remains a crowd puller. Travelers can chase down the Northern Lights and indulge in outdoor adventures around Reykjavik which has a legendary nightlife. So, of all the adventurous things to do in Europe, visiting these places is a must.
Spend some time in Portugal to learn why Lord Byron raved about it. In the city of Porto in Portugal, travelers can take in the beautiful views of the Rio Douro and soak in in the vibes of the UNESCO-listed Ribeira District. Lisbon is more upbeat than any other city in Portugal and offers some unusual things to do in Europe. Travelers can lose themselves in charismatic pavement designs, bask in the sun at Ribeira das Naus, catch a bullfight in Campo Pequeno, and stroll through Jardim Botanico da Ajuda in Lisbon. There are plenty of amazing things to do in Europe whether you're on a honeymoon in winter or a family holiday in summer.
When in Rome, do what the Romans did: enjoy la dolce vita. Go on historic tours through Roman Forum, launch Sunday morning shopping spree at the Porta Portese flea market, and toss a coin in the Trevi Fountain. Ancient ruins in Rome are among the top things to see in Europe. Taking vineyards tours in Tuscany, shopping in Milan, gondola rides in Venice, dine on Venetian cuisine, and boat tours along the Amalfi Coast are the best things to do in Italy.
While visiting France, learn the French way of life, or as they call it: Douceur de Vivre and indulge in some fun things to do in Europe. For those looking for popular things to do in Paris can scale and admire views from the Eiffel Tower, pay homage to departed celebrities at Père-Lachaise cemetery, take a picture with the Arc de Triomphe, and plan a day trip to Versailles. It is never a bad idea to culminate a night-out in Madrid or Barcelona with one too many glasses of Sangria and melodies of Spanish guitar.
If you happen to stop by Germany, make sure to attend Oktoberfest which is one of the best things to do in Europe in October. Consider London your oyster as it offers an opportunity to experience the best activities in Europe. Enjoy Thames River cruise to sail past famous attractions, go smell the roses at Hyde Park, explore Trafalgar Square, and take a ride on London Eye. Shopping at Naschmarkt market, tram tours on Ringstrasse and boat rides in Danube River are popular things to do in Vienna – the City of Music.
Skiing in Switzerland, wine tasting in France, attending La Tomatina festival in Spain, boarding a river cruise on the Danube, surfing in Portugal, and sunbathing along the Mediterranean coast are among other popular things to do in Europe.

Ipsita's 10 days trip to EuropeWell, the trip was well planned by the travel agent. However, we feel few things could have been better. To be very specific, hotel in Sevilla was not in the city centre which made difficult for us to look for our food. Secondly in Lisbon, the hop on hop off city tour could have been researched a bit more so as to understand how many routes they have for city tour and update the same to us before buying vouchers so that we could have selected of our choice. We were not happy with the route selected for city tour. The most cheapest option available for city tour was just handed over without any research and reconciliation from us. Thirdly in Ibiza, the driver who picked us from our hotel to drop us to the Ibiza airport to catch our next flight left us at 5’o clock in the morning outside the main airport gate since Ibiza airport closes at night 12:30 and opens in the morning 6’o clock. This is something which should have been taken care utmost. You just cannot leave your customer in the middle of nowhere at early winter morning winter when it is pitch dark. This also shows lack of research and communication to the local driver agency in Ibiza. Rest all was great.
Ravi's 5 days trip to EuropeFEEDBACK Team, to start with thank you note, Really appreciate your efforts in updating us on daily basis.. Thank you so much for support... Honestly speaking, many a times i felt that we have not been guided properly as multiple things which could be betterly suggested and managed: 1. Our travel to Paris ( you should have suggested us early morning train so that we have one complete day...We wasted 6 hours in bus journey which could have been managed in 2 hours on train n less efforts 2. We wasted lot of money on travel, you should have suggested us in advance that in order to cover our itenary, we need to regularly travel by transport so instead of taking ticket everytime, pass for 1 day could be purchased. We wasted incremental 5k on multiple travel 3. Cab arrangement from the place where we had a complete luggage i.e. whenever we traveled to another country we had to travel with whole luggage from bus stop to hotel n vice versa, you could have suggested n it should have been booked in advance like you did in case of airport duty.
Sangra M's 7 days trip to EuropeI would seriously like to say a big thank you to the team Travalot who made my Turkey trip a truly memorable one. It was my honeymoon trip and my first International trip. The arrangements done by them were on point and on time be it cab bookings, flight bookings or daily tour services. They had arranged everything perfectly that it did not felt at any given point of time that i would be left helpless in an unknown country. Moreover they were always connected with us day in and day out whenever needed. They answered and arranged for simplest of my questions or queries. They are truly a professional team at work. Kudos to team Travalot. Thanks to Saksham and Ranjit who co-ordinated and made my trip an unforgettable experience. Would definitely recommend them.
Prajit's 9 days trip to EuropeI should firstly thank Mr.Yesshu from Hub holidays team who followed up with me on regular basis and assured that our trip is more memorable and pleasant.I will surely refer travel traingle and also Hub holidays team with my friends. Venice and Florence were just wow!
Tanveer's 7 days trip to EuropeEUROPE - Prague, Vienna, Brussels & Paris. I am really happy about the overall experience from this Trip. Uday from Hub Holiday was very polite, supportive and available throughout our Travel when I needed inputs and guidance on the way forward. Though one of my Day trips to Bratislava got cancelled and the reason was not enough people for the Journey; However, the agent confirmed they shall refund the amount and Uday has confirmed he shall make sure to have the amount credited back. Overall I would call it a great Trip and Thanks to Uday for arranging this for me. Thank you
Swati's 8 days trip to EuropeAshish and Sebin helped a lot while booking the hotels, flights and the packages. They tried to accommodate my requests within the budget I had decided meanwhile trying to put as much fun activities.
Ravi's 17 days trip to EuropeWe took a trip to Europe from shell & Pearl . we took a kind of customized package for our trip. 10 days(central Europe) with group and 6 days(Croatia) only for both of us. Flight books and getting visa is made very easy by the agent Pooja. she coordinated very well with us. I would like to rate the group trip 1/5 (first 10 days) and customized only for us 5/5 (remaining 6 days). there are close to 40-45 members in the group which made our life very difficult. Also request the planners to coordinate trips based on age groups because only 5-6 young people(aged 20-35) and the remaining members(around 40) are aged 55 plus . There is lot of moving pace difference and we could not cover much. All the 10 days we are travelling in the coach and most of the time pass by travelling in coach. They have taken good hotels no doubt in it but they were in the outskirts and not in the city and driver works only 12 hrs a day . So morning you start at 9am you reach the site seeing places around 1pm or 2 pm and by 6 pm you need to start back. So, 6-7 hrs in a day are gone just in coach by travelling . And the site seeing places are shown in a hurry and that too from the outside by the tour guide. At times we left the group and went on our own to explore the places at our own expenses. My suggestion is take hotels in the city and not in the outskirts. Indian food is provided for dinner which was good. Quality of hotels is good but they are far from the city. And also we need to wait very long in the queues. For Eiffel tower entry we waited for 3 ours in the sun which is pathetic instead they should have provided skip line tickets by charging few more euros. No Museums were covered we did not go inside a museum because there is no time and we shown just from outside. 2nd part----- Next 6days in croatia were awesome since we had no non sense groups with us. we covered split,hvar and dubrovnik. We went at our own pace and explored the places and we we given cab and guide only for both of us and we explored the cities very well.
Vnsrahsin's 10 days trip to EuropeWe had a good trip for Budapest, Vienna & Prague 9N/10 days in early Nov 2019. Initial booking & follow up was good. Budapest was a great experience, In Vienna they have provided coupons for Schbenbrunn palace visit & consort + Imperial tour, which wasted almost Euro 32 which should have been utilized some were else. Vienna is a big city 2 day hop on off should be suggested by them. There are many grounds in which Duniya Safari team need to put efforts other then just got booking closed. They need to provide alternate & optional trips in the booking which provide options to customers to pick & choose as per their interest. Being more iterative with the customers would help.
Anil Kumar Bist
Anil's 10 days trip to EuropeWe have planned a family trip to Europe. We got an offer from Hubholiday.com through Travel Triangle. Mr Rohit of hubholiday suggested an appropriate itinerary to suit our time and budget. We spent 3 night each at Amsterdam, Paris and Switzerland (2 at Lucerne and 1 at Zurich). The itinerary was optimum and comfortable. The hotel stay was awesome. Location was very near to Metro/ public transport at Amsterdam, Lucerne and Zurich and at a reasonable distance at Paris. We have enjoyed the stay and Breakfast at the hotels. Sightseeing at Amsterdam and Paris was provided through the pre booked tickets, which was quite satisfactory. At Switzerland every part was covered through the Swiss pass. Drop and Pick-up to/from airport was timely in comfortable and spacious cars/Vans. Plenty space for the luggage. Selections of the international flights and internal travel arrangements were trouble free and seamless. Timings and selection of flight/train was very satisfactory. And finally Mr Rohit, the tour master, was very active and very keen to listen from us throughout the preparation and tour duration. He was always available and open to short out the issues, if any. Overall the experience was nice and vacations were memorable. A K Bist Mumbai.
Aaloka's 7 days trip to EuropeBooked my trip through Travel Traingle and they suggested a bouquet of agents I could book through. So I had some travel companies get in touch. Helped me compare itineraries and costs. I finalized on Duniya Safari. My experience was awesome. They were professional and added a personal touch too. The vouchers and bookings were send. Any queries I had were answered. Had an awesome trip. Paris- Brussels- Amsterdam. Hotels were located centrally. A day prior the itinerary for the next day was send by them to help us plan accordingly. Special thanks to Arindham and Anasua from Duniya Safari. Whenever we encountered any glitch out there, the guys at Duniya Safari were accessible and constantly in touched.
