On Santorini in Greece, The Huffington Post notes: “If you’re backpacking through cities, you’ll eventually need a place to slow down, relax and admire some gorgeous scenery. The island of Santorini is that place. From soaring cliffs to the Aegean Sea’s sapphire water, there’s no shortage of beautiful landscapes. From Fira, head to Ancient Thira or hop over to Oia and take in one of their famed sunsets. You can also sample delicious Greek cuisine and sunbathe on the island’s black sand beaches.”
Other cities included on the list are Berlin (Germany), Riga (Latvia), Stockholm (Sweden), Copenhagen (Denmark), Budapest (Hungary), Oslo (Norway), Český Krumlov (Czech Republic), Barcelona (Spain), Kraków (Poland), Lisbon (Portugal), Dublin (Ireland), Lviv (Ukraine), Glasgow (United Kingdom), Florence (Italy), Rotterdam (Netherlands), Brussels (Belgium), Reykjavik (Iceland), Helsinki (Finland) and Dubrovnik (Croatia).
According to The Huffington Post, the great thing about the selected cities is that they “are even worth visiting if you’re not exactly in your 20s anymore.”
