What, wanting to go on vacation? You are not the only one! In fact, I will not wait for them to arrive and I will continue to be faithful to my trips, since from time to time it comes in handy to visit European cities like the ones I will mention below.

All of them I consider that they should be in your ‘ triplist ‘ of this 2019 for several reasons. Ready to discover them? We started!

Vevey (Switzerland)

Few Swiss cities are as beautiful as Vevey, which despite being quite a spectacle does not enjoy the reputation of the most important in the country . It barely reaches 20,000 inhabitants and is known for being the headquarters of the multinational Nestlé. It became one of the fashionable destinations during the Belle Epoque due to the beauty of its riverside promenade, which is why actor Charlie Chaplin decided to spend the last 25 years of his life there. The old town, baptized as Vieille Ville, is one of its main attractions.

Matera (Italy)

With just over 60,000 inhabitants and labeled " City of Stones ", Matera is one of the most beautiful you’ll find in southern Italy. It is in the Basilicata region and many put it on the map when it appeared in the movie "The Passion of the Christ" starring Mel Gibson. It is a spectacular city that was named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, something that one begins to understand as soon as one gets lost in its narrow streets. Of course, you have to be prepared to be hot and to face more than a fairly steep slope.

Sitges (Spain)

I will not tire of saying that it is one of the most beautiful places that one can visit in the province of Barcelona. Sitges has a beach, atmosphere and a beautiful old town. Enjoying your walk is mandatory, as is resting on its fine sand while the sun slowly sets. It is a gay-friendly destination popular for its carnival and for the Sitges Film Festival that takes place every year (usually at the beginning of October).

Arles (France)

This list also could not miss Arles, a French city of just over 50,000 inhabitants that is fortunate to be located in the Provence region. It is perfect for history lovers, since there are many monuments that were built in different times, such as its ancient amphitheater and aqueducts, which will make you believe that it is actually in Rome.

Zadar (Croatia)

Thinking of Croatia as a vacation destination often leads us to book a room in Dubrovnik, which is really a city to take your hat off. However, you have to explore a little more to realize that it is a country full of incredible municipalities. One of them is Zadar, a cosmopolitan city that has left the war period behind to transform itself into an ideal place for a leisurely stroll. Its promenade, with the famous sea ​​organ , is highly recommended.

Minsk (Belarus)

Yes, I know that traveling to Belarus does not sound very attractive, but it must be said that the capital of the country is capable of attracting any tourist. This year, by the way, it will host the European Games from June 21 to 30, something that will undoubtedly reinforce its position as one of the European cities with the most growth potential in terms of tourism, as it will reveal some of its virtues, such as for example how clean its streets are always or how safe it is.
