I love exploring European cities on a weekend getaway.
There are so many opportunities for weekend getaways in Europe, even from where I live on the west coast of the United States.
I’ve included some of my best one day itineraries below to give you an idea of how I spend my time when exploring a new city in one or two days.

Not sure where you want to travel to?
Sometimes it’s hard to decide on a destination when there are so many places you want to go. I often select a destination based solely on the time of year and affordability.
I personally prefer to travel in the shoulder season to avoid both high prices and crowds. Many times, I’ll also book trips based on airfare deals I’ve found. So my best advice for selecting your next travel destination, be flexible and keep an open mind.
