Travel in Europe: the cities to visit absolutely!


The trip to Europe (or the Eurotrip, American style): a veritable rite of passage globe-trotter in the making. “Traveling in Europe” is obviously extremely vague, and for someone embarking on a first big trip or a long road trip, it can be disarming to decide between all these beautiful countries. As always, your Hostel world friends have traveled all over Europe and visited everything to help you make your choice. Here is a list of the best places to visit for those planning to travel to Europe. So welcome , viel glück and olé !


No trip to Europe is really complete without passing through the French capital. It is convenient if it is your starting point, and if you come from the famous and mythical “province”, let yourself be seduced by the city of love! Climb the stairs of Butte Montmartre, where the Basilica of the Sacred Heart is located and enjoy the best views of the entire capital. Returning through the charming streets of Montmartre, head to the Café Les Deux Moulins, which was the location of Amélie Poulain’s most famous and fabulous destination. For a totally Parisian experience you can choose a hotel in the touristic center of Paris like near Champs Elysées or overlooking the Eiffel Tower.

Parisians are known for their positive and enthusiastic side. Take advantage of this stop in their natural habitat to take the fold and sit on the terrace of a café and judge / mater / criticize passersby. We recommend the terraces of the Boulevard Saint Germain, in the very chic-intello VIe arrondissement, and its favorite spot, the Café de Flore, where French intellectuals such as Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir had their habits. (The story does not say if they also comment on people’s clothes).

If you are Rive Gauche, do not hesitate to visit the Great Mosque of Paris. Located a little away from typical tourist districts, this building, although discreet from the outside, is one of the most beautiful in the city. After your visit, relax in the courtyard of the adjacent Tea Room, where you can enjoy mint tea and traditional oriental pastries.

In the evening, have a drink at Rosa Bonheur, in the heart of the Buttes-Chaumont Park, or at the Petit Bain, on a barge, to start the evening gently, your regulatory glass of Rosé in hand. If you are subject to hay fever and you do not have the sea foot, no worries, and follow our guide to the best bars in Paris ! And once night falls, just go a little further north, to Wanderlust, a famous bar thanks to its rooftop terrace overlooking the Seine. It offers nightclub atmosphere evenings with a house / hip-hop mix of madness. If this is not your type, you can always take a look at the advice of the experts of Resident Advisor on the best clubs in Paname , it’s how you want.

Partying is good, but let’s not forget a little culture. Paris is the ideal place for a cure of museums (often free for under 26 years). In addition to top-level bosses such as the Louvre and the Musée d’Orsay, the capital is full of smaller but less crowded museums and equally exciting exhibitions. I am particularly thinking of the Musée du Luxembourg, my darling, but also the Grand Palais, temporary exhibitions always tempting, or the Center Pompidou, for lovers of contemporary art. Of course, this is only a small sample: it would take a whole article on the museums of Paris to get a better idea of the delusional choice that proposes the capital in terms of museums.
