5 AMAZING PLACES YOU MUST VISIT IN EUROPE ON YOUR SCHENGEN VISA

must visit in Europe

GUEST POST BY KRITIKA PANASE

A Schengen visa is your key to touring all through Europe. A visa like this can be compared to a golden ticket that can give the holder more freedom to travel to their favourite countries in Europe without worrying about visa complications. To those unfamiliar with the Schengen visa term, it is simply a visa that permits its holder to visit 26 different countries throughout Europe on the same visa. All 26 of these countries have signed and adhered to the Schengen Agreement of 14 June 1985 which enables them to use a single visa. However, the traveller must choose their destinations to visit in Europe before applying for a Schengen visa. If you are keen on travelling to Europe and pondering which destinations to choose, check out our top 5 selections that are a must visit in Europe.

must visit in Europe
Alps, Switzerland

SWITZERLAND

In the heart of Europe, Switzerland enchants its visitors with refreshing lakes, rolling meadows, stunning alpine terrains and snow-capped peaks. On a Swiss journey, the cozy townships and countryside, scattered throughout the foothills of the majestic mountains of Matterhorn and Jungfrau or flanked along the shorelines of clear lakes of Lucerne, Brienz and Lugano, are the best escapes from the daily grinds of life. Known for its mountain sceneries, a Swiss winter holiday in charming chalets, either trying out winter sport adventures or enjoying strolls in quaint places sampling cheese and chocolates, are on every Swiss vacationer’s wishlist. The cities are equally enchanting, yet what really makes the journey splendid is the scenic funicular trams and rail journeys that offer breathtaking views of the picturesque Swiss countryside.

Eiffel Tower, Paris

FRANCE

There is a famous French quote that goes something like this ‘Add three more letters to Paris and it is paradise’. There is no way that one can miss visiting France in Europe since Paris is an unmissable destination. That being said, France is not just about Paris. Look beyond the French capital city and you would find the wine regions of Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne, the riviera of Côte d’Azur and the alpine region of Mont Blanc with beautiful towns of Chamonix, Grenoble and Chambery. Each region offers a unique French flair and experiences fused with enriching cultures and gastronomy that would be etched in your mind for a long time.

must visit in Europe
Venice, Italy

ITALY

Known for its Mediterranean coastlines and Italian cuisine, Italy is a gem of a place to live the finest version of your life. You can look forward to experiencing the local culture and delicious cuisine made from local fresh produces, which will be a welcome detox from the worldly rushes of life. The Eternal City – Rome will leave you speechless with the works of some of the finest architects and sculptors of the Renaissance Era. The artistic inspiration of Florence will inspire you more, while the romance of Venice will capture your heart with its elegant canal-side hotels and serenading gondolas. The captivating scenery of the Amalfi coast will tempt you to cancel your return journey to your home country and stay awhile in this idyllic seaside town. The wine regions of Tuscany are also incredibly scenic and should not be missed when in Italy. 

must visit in Europe
Norway

NORWAY

Continuously ranked as one of the happiest destinations to live, Norway is an amalgam of gorgeous fjords, glaciers, and rugged mountains. It is also quite famous for its Nordic culture, folklore and highly eco-friendly lifestyle. The lower pollution rate makes it one of the popular places on the planet to clearly view the enchanting phenomenon – Northern Lights or the Aurora Borealis and also experience the Midnight Sun due to its strategic position on the planet.  Make sure to squeeze in a trip to this exotic land before you apply for a Schengen visa, as the scenery is magnificent and the experience is unforgettable.

must visit in Europe
Iceland

ICELAND

Iceland is another extraordinary destination in Europe that can be accessed via a Schengen visa. In Europe, the usually popular travel destinations tend to overshadow Iceland’s exceptional qualities. As a result of its uncanny mix of glacial mountains and lakes, hot springs, and volcanic terrain, this destination was always referred to as the land of fire and ice. Moreover, this destination boasts gorgeous beaches with black sand and pebbles. If you love a good outdoor adventure, then Iceland is your dream destination. It is also one of the best places to enjoy long self-driven tours. If you’re lucky, you will get a chance to spot a humpback, killer whale or blue whale in its gorgeous seawaters.

These are places we recommend you to visit for a beautiful experience in Europe. Don’t forget to tag us when you do!
