As in all other areas, there are also annual trends among dream trips. They are also linked to the current settings and preferences of the benefits. We looked at what is seen as a trend when it comes to preferred vacation destinations in Europe. Interestingly, we found that these are not unknown small towns. Quite the opposite. These are places that you may have already visited.
But the major European cities have a lot to offer. That’s why they’re worth more than one visit. You can proceed “thematically”. One time it should be more about culture, another time more about cuisine and nightlife. In addition, one always likes to visit the remote neighborhoods, which could also show interesting aspects of local life.

Fascination Europe! – Dream vacation in Porto
Do you want a dream vacation in Europe that includes the exotic, wonderful cuisine, a lot of history and culture from practically all European art projects? If so, then you have come to the right place in Porto, Portugal. You have no sea or beaches here. But Portugal is not that big and has good transport connections.
Pick a suitable location on the coast and drive there. Just be forewarned that all over the west coast the landscapes look harsh. Rather, you can enjoy sports and beautiful views here.
