Summer has brought us the revival of global travel and a better new normal, thanks to the ongoing vaccination of citizens around the world. For Europeans, visiting neighboring countries was a no-brainer, especially in these 5 thriving cities that will give you more thrill during the summer season. So, check out how to best enjoy Rome, Barcelona, Stockholm, Munich, and Zurich in their hottest days!

Rome

Ancient Rome and Renaissance Europe collide in the charming Italian capital. Rome’s beautiful architecture, rich history, and impeccable culinary offers make the city a perfect summer destination. During the months of August to September, many locals flee Rome for their beach holiday, leaving the city less busy for curious tourists. Roman landmarks that you shouldn’t miss are the Colosseum, Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Trevi Fountain, and Villa Borghese. And of course, reserve a day to visit the Vatican—you don’t even have to be religious to admire the Pontiff state!

For must-try food and drinks, we recommend that you order Cacio de Pepe pasta at a local trattoria, get a slice of pizza at Bonci Pizzarium, sip on a cappuccino at any local espresso café, and cap off your night with a glass of the popular roman cocktail Negroni.

Gothic and Baroque architecture with a splash of Gaudi adorns the exciting city of Barcelona. During the summer season, expect a crowd of tourists and Spanish locals parading to be seen at La Rambla street and La Barceloneta beach. Also, enjoy free entertainment from local musicians and street performers at these two locations.

Stockholm

When it’s summer in Sweden, everything seems so vibrant—be it the people, the landscape or scenery, and all festivities that come along during this time of the year. A Stockholm local shares with us that it is the absence of cold that makes Swedes smile all summer long. To best enjoy summer in Stockholm, you must partake in what locals like to do, e.g., having afternoon drinks at rooftop bars or go boat riding from one island to another. But if you are in a touristy mood, check out Viking Ships at the Vasa Museum, stroll around Royal Palace grounds, visit Skansen farmsteads and zoo, and explore the colorful streets of Gamla Stan.

Munich

Travel to Bavaria’s capital in summer to enjoy its sunny lakeside, Alpine foothills, colorful town streets, and beautiful parks. If you want to experience summer in Munich like a local, join its residents who flock to its numerous lakeshores for picnics and tanning. Or if you’re looking for a unique summer thrill, give Elsbach river surfing a try. Other Munich landmarks you shouldn’t miss are the Marienplatz, Gartnerplatz, English Garden, Hofgarten, Munich Residenz, and the Nymphenburg Palace. For must-try food and drinks, visit the historic Victuals Market for some local delicacies, like münchner weißwurst, dampfnudel, schluxen, Bavarian cream dessert, and of course, Bavaria’s famous Marzen beer.

Summer in Zurich is packed with fun outdoor activities that you’ll forget that the city is one of the world’s most important financial centers. During this time, you’ll see Swiss citizens frolicking by the Limmat River in Zurich; some would even jump from the Draht Schmidli Stag or pedestrian bridge to take a plunge in the water. To make the most of your Zurich trip, make sure to visit Old Town, cruise on Lake Zurich, join the open-air movie nights in Zurich’s urban quarters, and go on a side trip to Ufenau Island for a wine tour. Complete your visit by trying a classic cheese fondue or raclette meal, rosti, bundnerfleisch or cured beef, and freshly baked zopf bread.
