Looking for a little European vacation inspiration? You've come to the right place. 

I've lived in Europe for well over a decade. During that time, I've had the chance to visit every country in the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA), United Kingdom (UK) and Switzerland. 

Needless to say, I have opinions on the best destinations in Europe to satisfy every interest. 

I know that planning a trip to Europe, whether it's your first or 21st, can be overwhelming. There are just so many places and factors to consider. 

What criteria should you use to pick a European vacation destination? 

With all this in mind, I created the Sidewalk Safari European Destination Picker.

Answer a series of yes/no questions (between 2 and 13) to arrive at the perfect European holiday destination that matches your interests. 

Some of the questions are what you'd expect while others may surprise you. Regardless, I'm confident that this European holiday "choose-your-own-adventure" experience will help take the guesswork out of the itinerary planning process for a trip to Europe.

European Destination Picker Shortcuts

While the link above is the only way to get the full range of choices, I know there are times when you already have a more specific Eurotrip in mind. 

Maybe you are planning a European road trip? Perhaps you are looking for a weekend city break in one of Europe's culturally diverse capitals? 

You might also be planning a trip for a certain time of year (e.g., a European summer holiday or winter break).

If this describes your situation, check out the prompts below to take a shortcut into the destination picker and find your ideal country in Europe to visit faster.
