Traveling in Europe provides this incomparable experience of being able to wander between centuries, cultures, and a variety of landscapes from a handful of locations that can be rallied in just a couple of hours by train or by car.
It is truly in the heart of its cities that you’ll find the epitome of European culture. Topping the list, the romantic cities of Paris and Rome welcome lovers from around the world, Barcelona and Berlin tireless party-goers, and London and Amsterdam’s travelers craving artistic eclecticism.
However, if you’re planning a trip to Europe in 2020, there are maybe a few other things you might wish to do besides visiting monuments, touring museums, partying, and savoring the local food. For instance, how about visiting some of the best flea markets in the world? France, the UK, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, and Spain are among the most antiques-aware and best flea market-friendly locations in the world.
The ideal playground for city-breakers, the Old Continent offers a network of very well connected cosmopolitan and culturally rich cities. Its railway network (Thalys, Eurostar, TGV, DB) is one of the most modern and best connected in the world; you can for instance start your trip to London by visiting the Portobello Road flea market and Brick Lane flea market (DAY 1), grab the Eurostar to Paris and visit Les Puces de Clignancourt and the Vanves flea market (DAY 2), and then take the TGV to Lille (DAY 3), Brussels (DAY 3) and then reach Amsterdam (DAY 4).
But enough of logistics for now.
