Most instagrammable European destinations for summer

 

If you like sunshine and summertime when you’re on holidays, then July to August is the best time to plan your trip to Europe. And while you’re scaling the Eiffel Tower or channeling your inner Gladiator while you roam the grounds of The Colosseum, you’re probably going to want to capture the memory with a photo. So just where are the best locations in Europe to bring your Instagram account to life?

From iconic landmarks to some hidden gems, here are 10 of our top picks for Europe’s most instagrammable destinations:

 

 

1. The Eiffel Tower

Arguably one of the most famous (and romantic) destinations in Europe, The Eiffel Tower sure pulls its weight when it comes to Instagram photos. On the Go Tours lists this famous location as the most instagrammed site in the world with the hashtag #EiffelTower being used 3,411,588 times.

2. Moscow, European Russia

Home to the final of the 2018 World Cup, Moscow has a lot to deliver when it comes to picturesque locations. The colour and architecture are stuff instagram dreams are made of. Just think Saint Basil’s Cathedral. Instagram gold right there.

3. Tromsø, Norway

Tromsø is in Northern Norway, and from there you might be lucky enough to see the Northern Lights light up the night sky. The Northern Lights are the result of charged particles from The Sun entering and colliding with Earth’s atmosphere. With that brief science lesson out of the way, let’s take a look at the natural beauty that could be a part of your instagram feed.

4. Copenhagen, Denmark

The home of our very own Princess Mary, Copenhagen started life as a fishing village and dates back to the 10th century, so there’s over one thousand years of history waiting there for you. What more could you ask for when showing your best life on Insta?

5. The Isle of Skye, Scotland

Located in the highlands of Scotland and steeped in history, The Isle of Skye is an historically significant part of Scotland. One of the most famous periods was the Jacobite Rebellion - if you’re a fan of the TV show Outlander, you’ll know all about the kilts and clan wars of Scotland. These days it's a much safer tourist destination where you’ll be treated with rolling hills and medieval castles. So get your phone ready to snap some unforgettable photos in this part of the world.
