Europe has so many beautiful destinations it can be hard choosing which ones should be on the top of your list to see. Before I even landed in Florence, I had already started planning my weekend trips. Soon enough, I realized I had more places on my list than there were weekends in the semester. Now I’m realizing, it’s not the number of places that I visit, but the quality of my trips. Some weekends were effortless, and some definitely require more planning. But a few of my favorite destinations so far that wowed me are Cinque Terre, Paris, and Amsterdam.
