Rather than our fixed holiday destinations, we bring you some exciting new places to visit. If you are tired of visiting same places over and over again, we give you a quick guide for places to see in Europe. Look past the prototype of London, Rome, Paris and you'll find how beautiful and diverse Europe is! 



1. Isle of Skye, Scotland:
Skye is simply stunning and is one of the few places in the United Kingdom that has been left untouched by us humans. It is the largest and northernmost of the major islands in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. With its significant rocks, Skye is straight out of the pages of a fantasy novel. 


2. Bibury, England:
On the banks of river Coln, Bibury is a small village in England.  It is a major destination for tourists visiting the traditional rural villages, tea houses and many historic buildings of the Cotswold District. The nineteenth-century artist and craftsman William Morris called Bibury "the most beautiful village in England" when he visited it. The village is known for its honey-colored seventeenth century stone cottages with steeply pitched roofs, which once housed weavers who supplied cloth for fulling at nearby Arlington Mill. It’s the perfect destination for everyone who’d like to have some rest and relaxation, being surrounded by amazing scenery.


3. Alberobello, Italy: 
Apart from Rome and Venice, Italy has a huge collection in its bag to attract the tourists. And Alberobello is surely one of them. Alberobello is a small town and comune of the Metropolitan City of Bari, Apulia, southern Italy. It has 10 735 inhabitants and is famous for its unique Trullo buildings. The Trulli of Alberobello has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1996. They are made from limestone rock derived from the plateau of Apulia’s Murge zone.


4. Meteora, Greece: 
The word meteora means  "middle of the sky", "suspended in the air" or "in the heavens above" — etymologically related to meteorology. Well, it has its name for a reason. The six architectural marvels are perched high on top of natural sandstone rock pillars. And yes, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


5. Lofoten, Norway:
Lofoten is known for a distinctive scenery with dramatic mountains and peaks, open sea and sheltered bays, beaches, and untouched lands. Though lying within the Arctic Circle, the archipelago experiences one of the world's largest elevated temperature anomalies relative to its high latitude. Lofoten is considered part of the Western Gneiss Region of Norway. With its vibrant sea life, Lofoten is everything you can dream of.


6. Kizhi, Russia: 
The word enchanting really is dreadfully overused, but this Russian beauty begs exception. Kizhi is by far the most visited of Lake Onega’s 1600-plus islands, thanks to its Transfiguration Church which is tremendous. Open-air museum Kizhi is one of the first in Russia, which started functioning on the island in 1951 and currently contains about 87 wooden constructions. The most famous of them is the Kizhi Pogost, which contains two churches and a bell tower surrounded by a fence. The pogost was included in the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1990.


7. Sintra, Portugal: 
Okay, I admit, Sintra is not a very unheard place. Sintra is known for its many 19th-century Romantic architectural monuments, which has resulted in its classification as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Although its heritage in buildings and nature is the most visible face of the historic individuality of Sintra, a whole literary heritage has made the area a legendary reference in Portuguese culture. It has become a major tourist centre, visited by many day-trippers who travel from the capital Lisbon.
