Sevilla Spain

The best city in the world to travel in 2018 is Seville, which, according to Lonely Planet, has been transformed in the last 10 years, going from being a city congested by traffic to a city full of bicycles and trams. Next year it will host the 31st edition of the 2018 European Film Awards and will celebrate the 400th anniversary of the birth of Bartolomé Esteban Murillo.

Detroit, United States

The second position in the ranking is occupied by Detroit, where young creatives have transformed numerous abandoned premises into galleries, bike shops and distilleries. This American city has just opened a hockey and basketball stadium and the QLine streetcar, and will soon open three new parks.

Canberra, Australia

Closing the top 3 we find Canberra, the capital of Australia, a city that hides numerous national treasures despite its small size. Lonely Planet also highlights its exciting new boutique- style neighborhoods and the centennial celebration of the World War II Armistice at the Australian War Memorial.

Hamburg, germany

We return to Europe to discuss Hamburg, which is home to the brand new Elbe Philharmonic, whose base reflects the brick aesthetic of the historic harbor area. In addition, this German city hides many surprises, such as a lively nightlife.

Kaohsiung, Taiwan

In fifth position we find Kaohsiung, the third city in size and importance of the ROC. A massive 100,000-square-meter auditorium and art center stands on its waterfront, serving as a showcase to the world of experimental architecture in Taiwan.

Antwerp, Belgium

The next city on the list is Antwerp, the unofficial capital of Flanders, which is packed with historical riches as well as home to top-of-the-line art and design. Next year it will host the Antwerp Baroque 2018 event, which will include street art, parades, concerts, multimedia shows and workshops.

Matera, Italy

We continue in the old continent to talk about Matera, a city in Italy that surprises for its honey-colored houses perched on a ravine and for housing monasteries more than 9,000 years old. The city will serve as the European Capital of Culture in 2019.

San Juan Puerto Rico

San Juan
In eighth position we find San Juan, the capital of Puerto Rico, a place where the new and the old converge. You will love Old San Juan, a walled enclave, although its murals, museums and galleries should also be highlighted.

Guanajuato, Mexico

Guanajuato occupies the ninth position in the ranking. It is a small city in the central highlands of Mexico, offering an impressive urban landscape of beautiful squares, colorful houses and ornate churches.

Oslo, Norway

Finally, we must talk about Oslo, the capital of Norway, which next year will celebrate the golden anniversary of the kings of Norway. Thus, in 2018 there will be numerous civil, culinary and cultural events. In addition, the iconic Oslo Opera House will turn 10 years old.
