June is an excellent time for a European – and not only! – vacation, when sceneries are green and nights are warm. Wear light and bright clothes, eat out on the terrace, hike and discover new places – in short, get more active. Here are three destinations where you can do that.
Some people think there’s nothing more to add to this ancient territory’s cave dwellings and underground cities. Well, June has something to offer, like blooming flowers and longer daylight hours, so photo-fans could enrich their collection, or boast some impressive Instagram posts. Try taking an air-balloon or horse-riding, to avoid crowds.
Switzerland is a work of art, and this lovely town is much loved by art and architecture enthusiasts, especially in June, when an international art fair takes place. After-parties continue at Basel’s countless bars by the waters of Rhine. Real gourmets should try Michelin-level French cuisine at Cheval Blanc. Steal a table with a water view on the terrace.
3. Saint Petersburg
This city is pure magic in June, when its beauties can be explored twenty-four seven. Days and nights fuse and there is something euphoric and careless about this time when the sun doesn’t set. See world-class ballet at the Mariinsky theatre, or walk as many rooms of the infinite Hermitage as you can.
