As the old adage goes, ‘travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer’. Long gone are the days when travelling was the privilege of a select few. Whether you are planning your first of several backpacking vacations or you are a seasoned backpacker, cheap flights to Europe will ensure a once-in–a-lifetime experience without having to spend a fortune. Here are top five destinations you’re going to love to visit:

Rome

Rome

The ‘Eternal City’ is one where every turn of a street corner surrounds you with awe-inspiring ruins that in any other city would probably sit in the inside of a museum. The sheer number of monuments can be overwhelming, and the 5 most popular attractions are a good place to start with. The Colosseum, Fontana Di Trevi, the Spanish Steps, The Vatican and the Pantheon are all within walking distance of each other, or at most a few metro stops away. Walking through the backstreets gives you a chance to interact with the locals away from the throngs of tourists in the city. The biggest draw however, is undoubtedly the aroma of freshly baked pizzas and creamy gelatos.

Amsterdam

Amsterdam

The high frequency of cheap flights to Amsterdam makes it is one of the easiest locations to access. The city is best explored by bike, to make the most of its canal side streets. Spend your day admiring the works of Van Gogh and Rembrandt, and enjoying a walk around the art-filled gardens of Rijksmuseum. From here you could set off towards Vondelpark, a favourite amongst tourists and locals alike, and enjoy a leisurely stroll in the sun. Visiting the Anne Frank Huis is a soul-stirring experience that gives you an insight into the Secret Annexe where Anne Frank wrote the diary. In the evenings, you could enjoy a drink at one of the many pubs or coffee shops that dot the scenic streets. If beer’s your thing, don’t miss out on the Heineken Experience!

Barcelona

Barcelona

Sun, Sangrias and Tapas – these words at once evoke dreamy images of white sand beaches, a bustling city and a happening nightlife. Whether you are travelling solo, with friends, or a significant other, this city has something for everyone. The most popular attraction is the awe-inspiring La Sagrada Familia, not yet completed but first conceived in 1892. Home to some of the best specimens of modern art and architecture, including works by Dali and Gaudi, the city looks like a wonderland straight out of a fairy tale. A trip to Barcelona isn’t complete without a visit to Casa Batllo, Park Guell and La Boqueria market – a veritable paradise for foodies. With daily cheap flights to Barcelona, the place is nothing short of a dream destination for backpackers.

Prague

Prague

Legend has it that Prague, or Praha as it is fondly known locally, was born out of the dream of a princess. True to folklore, it is one of the most stunning capitals in Europe. Nicknamed “the city of a hundred spires” and known for its Gothic churches and Old Town square, the city’s medieval architecture is truly breath-taking. Home to the largest ancient castle in the world, you can admire this standout feature in Prague’s skyline during a leisurely stroll along the Charles Bridge. In the summer months, you can hire a paddle boat and head out across the river to take in the views. If you’re looking to let your hair down, Prague also boasts of Karlovy Lazne, the largest club in central Europe.

Budapest

Budapest

Young backpackers in Europe cannot miss out on Budapest, the capital city of Hungary. Make a stop at this incredible city that is not yet the focus of many tourists, to get a true and unique sense of what Europe has to offer. Saunter down the lively streets, sample the outstanding local cuisine and meet friendly locals. Make sure to spend some time taking in the rich historical heritage through a visit to the Royal Palace, the Vajdahunyad Castle, and Holocaust Memorial Centre. Do catch up on some legendary Hungarian cinema with a visit to Art Mozi, the country’s most famous art house movie chain. Finally, recharge yourself with a dip in one of the many geothermal hot spring baths before continuing on your adventures.
