1. London

We have been seeing London in most of the movies, read in novels and sang ‘London Bridge is falling down!‘ poems while we were kids and we had always dreamt of visiting this beautiful city. Aside from the awe-inspiring architecture of Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, and the Tower Bridge, London oozes with culture and character. People generally speak English and you probably would get through it. The Tube, Uber, and classic black cabs make transportation within the city easy, and there is a direct shuttle train to Heathrow Airport from King’s Cross station! Speaking of trains, you can hop on a train at King’s Cross and be in Paris or Edinburgh in just a few hours! For many Americans, London is the gateway to international travel. It’s their favorite city. London is iconic, beautiful, and filled to the brim with things to see and do.

Are you looking to immerse yourself in Italian culture, admire famous works of art, and eat way too much pasta? Then, Florence is waiting for you. The city is small and manageable. You can use the red roof of the stunning Duomo as your guiding north star, and use the mobile map app on your phone as a backup. The city itself is very walkable, so you won’t have to worry about navigating public transportation. Florence is a popular choice for American college students studying abroad and most of them speak English here. Florence has a modern train station located in the city center.

Edinburgh is just a 7-hour flight from the northeast US. You can explore the Edinburgh Castle, hike through postcard-worthy greenery on Arthur’s Seat, and listen to live folk music as you sip some local whisky.

Scotland is known as one of the safest countries in the world, and Edinburgh’s Waverly train station offers a convenient link to London, Glasgow, or the countryside. With the city split into an “Old Town” and “New Town,” you’ll have the choice of chain restaurants and designer stores or local pubs and tiny wool shops. The blend of old and new will provide you with modern comforts while feeling like you’re walking through the set of a Harry Potter movie.
