Getaways: Unique, Less Touristy European Cities Make the Perfect Spring Getaway Destinations

A springtime visit to a slightly less traveled to European destination can be a travelers’ best trip strategy. The team at Viator.com—the leading resource for researching and booking nearly 6,000 trip activities and experiences at the best prices—recommends considering destinations like Amsterdam, Barcelona and Istanbul for spring getaways and Easter breaks with smaller crowds, favorable weather and unique cultural experiences around every corner.

Istanbul, Turkey

Visitors to Istanbul, Turkey’s largest city and its cultural heart, can walk through streets where crusaders once marched on their way to hunt for bargains in the famous Grand Bazaar. One of the world’s truly romantic cities and the former capital of the Roman and Ottoman Empires, Istanbul has a bustling culture, active nightlife and diverse architectural landscape.

• For a more personalized experience, the Private Tour: Istanbul in One Day Sightseeing Tour including Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace offers many of the city’s most important attractions in addition to added customization.

• Start the day with a visit to the 17th century Spice Bazaar during the Bosphorus Cruise and Istanbul’s Egyptian Bazaar experience.
