Read my highlights of the best European destinations for various types of travelers and interests, including the best budget places.

Some of many destinations I visited and liked but haven't covered in my blog yet

I just finished the 5-month non-stop adventure exploring various European cities and destinations. I had an incredible time seeing beautiful  old buildings and pretty urban scenes.

I want to share my findings and videos of my urban walks with you. Writing thoughtful blogs takes quite a long time, so I have decided to briefly mention some of the places I have seen and explored.

So, here, I want to highlight a few of the many places I have visited recently, but haven't covered on my blog posts yet (I will soon!). 

I will talk about Barcelona, Paris, Rome and Budapest here, and the highlights of my trips. 

Rome, Italy

Rome is one of my favorite cities. It is just so huge and so old with so much history, and its architecture shows that.

Rome is fantastic city for urban walks. Everything is just so uniquely looking!

It is the place where you can find some of the most remarkable monuments of ancient Rome. You can find the Colosseum, the Pantheon (my favorite!), the Roman Forum and the Trevi Fountain there.

Here is my reel of the Colosseum I made after visiting it. I still haven't covered Rome in my blog, but you can watch my short video of it here.

Another place I liked a lot was the Borghese gallery. I took a million pictures and I will post them soon.

Rome is also the center of Christianity, with many churches, basilicas and chapels that display different styles and periods.

Some of the most important ones are the St. Peter's Basilica and the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican. There are also Santa Maria Maggiore (my favorite!) and the San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane.

I love Rome and I visit it as often as I can. One of the tricks I do is to buy my plane ticket to Rome, as it's one of the cheapest places to fly from the US (especially from the West Coast).

Later, I buy another ticket to my destination on a budget airline or on train or bus.

Barcelona, Spain

I had a lovely time in Barcelona.

Barcelona is multifaced. You will find tradition and innovation in its architecture and layout. And also you will find lovely streets to walk on, great boulevards to ride a bike on just walk. You will also enjoy many cute cafes.

Barcelona is the home of Antoni GaudĂ­, the architect who created some of the most original and colorful buildings in the world, such as the Sagrada Familia, the Park GĂŒell, the Casa BatllĂł and the Casa MilĂ .

Barcelona also has a modern side, with sleek and futuristic buildings like the Torre Agbar, the W Barcelona and the Museu Blau.

While Barcelona's architecture is not my favorite, being more modern than I like, I still always have a great time there, and I will cover it in my more detailed post soon.

It has older districts as well, including its famous Gothic Quarter, where you can find medieval churches, palaces and squares. I just like walking there, it's a great place for urban walks!

Paris, France

Paris is another city that I visited and loved, but haven't covered yet in my blog. It's a city of romance and elegance, and its architecture reflects that. It has its share of iconic landmarks, such as the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Notre Dame Cathedral and the Louvre Museum.

It also has a share of less known streets that were great for my urban walks.

It is also a city of art and culture, with many museums, galleries and theaters housed in beautiful buildings. Some of the most impressive examples of these buildings are the Musée d'Orsay, the Centre Pompidou, the Opéra Garnier and the Grand Palais.

Paris also has a contemporary edge, with innovative projects like the La DĂ©fense, the Fondation Louis Vuitton and the Philharmonie de Paris.

One of these days I'll cover Paris in more details.

Budapest, Hungry

I visited Budapest last month and I loved it a lot! I haven't prepared a blog post about yet, so I'm just mentioning the most important facts about it.

Budapest, the capital of Hungary, is famous for its beautiful buildings, interesting history, and lively culture. Divided by the Danube River, Budapest has hilly Buda on the west side and flat Pest on the east.

The city's architecture mixes styles like Gothic, Baroque, Art Nouveau, and modern.

Key buildings in Budapest include the Hungarian Parliament Building, Buda Castle, St. Stephen's Basilica, and the Fisherman's Bastion.

I also visited the Széchenyi Chain Bridge, Great Market Hall, Széchenyi Thermal Bath, and Margaret Island, among other points of interest.

I had lovely urban walks in Budapest, strolling along the Danube Promenade to see interesting places, or to just walk around aimlessly, soaking the vibes.

I loved exploring the historic Castle District in Buda, walking down AndrĂĄssy Avenue.

I also really enjoyed the Jewish Quarter in Pest and its dive bars: the were lovely ad much better than I expected them to be.

I will cover this beautiful city and my one-month long stay there with many awesome walks soon! Come back when they're ready.
