That summer is ending does not mean that we have to stop thinking about dream destinations. And it is that beyond those lucky ones who still have a few days of vacation ahead of them, it may be that during the next few months you can afford the opportunity to make a little getaway to a nearby corner. For this reason, at Vuela Viajes we are not going to stop recommending places that you should visit sometime in your life.
Today, for example, we want to take a tour of some of the most beautiful towns in Europe , beyond the wonders that you cannot miss in Spain. Would you like to join us? I assure you will not regret!
Castle Combe, England
The first corner we want to talk to you about is Castle Combe, which we already talked about when we showed you the most beautiful villages in England. And it is considered one of the most beautiful towns in the whole of the United Kingdom . Its picturesque houses, its 14th century market and its medieval church stand out. And although it is characterized by its tranquility, the quiet of the place is broken when the Castle Combe Motor Racing Circuit is held.
La Roque Gageac, France
In France we find the Roque Gageac, also considered among the best villages in the whole country. As you can see in the image, it draws attention for its spectacular landscape (at the foot of a cliff on the banks of the Dordogne river), although it is also impressive to know that it is a place that has been inhabited since prehistory. In 1957 the town suffered a terrible misfortune : a gigantic block of rock fell on a group of houses, killing several people and cutting off the road for a few years. Later it was rebuilt without betraying its characteristic peculiarities.
Another town that cannot be missing from the list is Hallstatt, located between Lake Halstätter and the Salzkammergut mountains, in Austria. Considered a World Heritage Site by UNESCO , it is a place that attracts both its history and its impressive landscapes. And it is that in addition to being framed by mountains and a beautiful lake with crystal clear waters, it has archaeological salt mines located on the top of a hill.
Cinque Terre, Italy
From Italy we want to highlight the Cinque Terre ("Five Lands") area, five fishing villages located in the province of La Spezia bathed by the Ligurian Sea. We refer to Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. Recognized as World Heritage of Humanity for their landscapes and cultural values, these towns raised as defying nature have beautiful bays, beaches, cliffs, a striking culture of their own and a remarkable marine fauna.
From southern Europe we also want to highlight Mykonos, a small Greek island of extraordinary beauty thanks to its beautiful white and square houses that also attract attention for their colorful balconies, doors and windows. In addition, we must not forget that it has become the gay place par excellence in the entire Mediterranean, as well as hosting a very festive atmosphere.
We cannot forget Mortsund, a destination little known among tourists but worth visiting at least once in a lifetime. Located in Norway, this fishing village nestled in the middle of nature surprises us with its captivating mix of colors: red, gray, green, all kinds of blues …
Finally, we want to talk about Blend, a town located in the Julian Alps, Slovenia . The place highlights its castles and churches located in the forests and its impressive glacial lake.
