20 Hidden Gems in Europe

Europe seems to be at the top of travelers’ minds lately. The pandemic may have devastated tourism on the old continent for a short while, but visitors have come rushing back, with trans-Atlantic travel at an all-time high.

I’m a firm believer that famous cities like Paris and Rome deserve the attention they get. The same goes for iconic non-city destinations like Santorini and the Swiss countryside. But if you’ve already seen all that or just want to get off the beaten path for part of your stay, there are exponentially more hidden gems in Europe to add to your itinerary.

Hidden vacation spots around the continent include picturesque villages, secluded beach spots, lesser-known regions, and even entire countries you may have never heard of. Besides being beautiful and unique, these places have the added bonuses of fewer crowds and cheaper travel costs.

I’ve discovered countless of these places during my time living in Europe, and my writer colleagues here at ViaTravelers have even more insight to add. We’ve put together a list of the best European hidden gems from our experience, and we want to share them with you. Read on for some interesting ideas for your next trip across the pond!
