Planning your 2023 trip to Europe

If you are planning a vacation this year, traveling to Europe should be top of your list. The continent is full of diverse cultures, countries and history and you can revisit year after year and see new sights each time. Here are some key things to consider if you are planning to visit the incredible continent in 2023.

Where should I go in Europe?

It can be hard to know where to go in Europe if you are visiting for the first time. While it is the second smallest continent, it is the third most populated so there are so many things to do and places to explore!

For many first-time travelers, London, Paris, Rome Barcelona and Amsterdam tend to be top of the list. However, it is totally up to you. Here is some inspiration for locations depending on what you are looking for from your trip:

  • History – Barcelona, Berlin, Athens
  • Culture – Florence, Basel, Warsaw
  • Food – Palermo, Girona, Venice, Copenaghen

What should I do in Europe?

If you are heading to Europe, you will be spoilt for choice with what to do while you are there. As such, booking Europe tours are a brilliant way to experience the best of what your country of choice has to offer. From cultural tours journeying through thousands of years of Greece’s history to walking through Burgundy’s vineyards and cycling across Croatia’s spectacular coastline – you are sure to find something that will pique your interest.

How long should I spend in Europe?

With so many places to visit, a vacation to Europe can take as long as you want it to. Generally, people tend to spend at least two weeks in Europe when they are trying to see a range of must-see spots, as there is so much to learn and experience in each place.

Some guidelines for how many places you can visit depending on the length are your trip are:

  • 7 days – 2 cities
  • 10 days – 3 cities
  • 14 days – 4 cities

You will have a much better time if you don’t try to visit a new city every day so it is key to plan your itinerary so that you don’t miss

How should I travel across Europe?

While flying between cities may seem like a more efficient option, that is generally not the case. When it comes to traveling by plane, there is a much longer check-in process (most airports recommend checking in two hours before your flight) and you will also need to go through customs once you reach your destination.

On the other hand, train travel may take longer in the journey time but you won’t need to arrive until just before your train leaves. Train stations are also located in city centres making them much easier to get to whereas the city’s airport will be on the outskirts.

Luckily, Europe has brilliant rail links and you can even get an Interrail pass which means you can visit 33 countries by train with one pass.
