Ultimate Bucket list destinations in Europe


There are so many places you can travel. Each places have their own magic and uniqueness. Therefore, we realized that making one travel bucket list was not enough, so we chose to do one per continent. We have compiled the top destinations to visit in Europe. We hope to visit all these places and do the activities that each specific destination is known for. Some of them we have already visited but they were high on our list before and we would love to go back.

Feel free to comment below any other place you think is missing from this bucket list!
