Most beautiful travel destinations
1 .London (United Kingdom)
Having passed the second place of this selective ranking does not detract from the charm of the British capital, which can boast of its many attractions: its extraordinary cultural and leisure offer, its long list of architectural wonders and its cosmopolitan character.
Although it may seem rhetorical, visitors to London can not miss visiting Westminster, Parliament, Buckingham Palace, Downing Street, Hyde Park, Trafalgar or Piccadilly or the London Eye, from where you can see fascinating views of the city. It is worth visiting museums such as British or the National Gallery which, to the surprise of many tourists, are free, or to markets such as Camden or Covent Garden.
2 .Paris (France)
Paris is fixed on the list of best destinations. And is that the French capital, that this year advances a position with respect to the list of 2016, catches the outsiders. The Eiffel Tower, which in 2019 will be 130 years since it was inaugurated, shines like never before on the sky of the city.
Next to it, Notre Dame, Arc de Triomphe, Champs Elysees, Louvre, or Montmartre have contributed to spread the fame of the French capital, which has other attractions such as the great haute couture shops, the flea market of Montreuil, the Moulin Rouge, the rue Royale, or its gastronomy.
3 .Rome (Italy)
The eternal city has advanced a position compared to last year, and in this edition occupies the fourth place of the Travelers’ Choice Destinations. The Eternal City must be visited without haste, walking quietly through its streets, to savor its thousand and one corners and discover a wonder at every step.
The Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Roman Forum and the Palatine, the Baths of Caracalla … allow you to go back in time, in a historical exercise that becomes a real pleasure. It is also necessary to get close to the most emblematic points of the Italian capital, such as the Trevi Fountain, Villa Borghese, the mythical Via Veneto or the Vatican and stop to savor its excellent gastronomy.
4 . New York (USA)
The city of skyscrapers is traditionally one of the favorite destinations for tourists from all over the world. And is that New York falls in love at any time of year, with an incomparable Manhattan, that does not leave indifferent to swim.
Central Park, Times Square, Empire State and Rockefeller, as emblems of its great buildings, the new World Trade Center; the fifth Avenue; the Statue of Liberty or its incredible bridges are a sure value of a city that in 2017 has advanced four positions in the preferences of travelers.
5 .Prague (Czech Republic)
The Czech capital has fallen three places compared to the 2016 ranking, but remains among the ten destinations preferred by travelers. And strolling through the old town of Prague, visiting the castle or the Old Town Square, the Town Hall or crossing the Charles Bridge is an experience worthy of a dream.
Beyond the city, it is worth to get to Karlovy Vary, a majestic spa town ideal for enjoying a day of relaxing hot springs.
6 .Barcelona (Spain)
Barcelona has climbed four places in the Travelers’ Choice Destinations, sticking for the first time in the world top ten, in addition to being recognized as fifth European destination and first of Spain. No doubt many of the tourists who visit the city are attracted by its modernism, with Gaudí – author of the Sagrada Família, Park Güell or La Pedrera -, Puig i Cadafalch or Domènech i Montaner, but the City offers many more surprises .
The Gothic quarter, the Rambla, the Passeig de Gràcia, the Picasso or Miró museums, its shops, its beaches, its gastronomy and its cosmopolitan atmosphere are other faces of the same city. Although the best thing to do is to get carried away to its streets and discover the corners that do not appear in the tourist guides; stop in some terrace away from the center and feel like a Barcelona more, tasting the local specialties.
