1. Amsterdam, Netherlands The corner of Sint Olofssteeg provides a unique angle to capture the canals

Lastminute.com reviewer shares, "The food in Amsterdam is absolutely delicious, plenty of choice for everyone no matter your nationality, also plenty of places for people with dietary requirements and vegans. Did all the tourist sightseeing, it was absolutely fantastic and captured some brilliant photos. Visited some coffee shops also which was also a fun experience as part of our holiday. The weather wasn't great as it did keep raining, but that didn't spoil our trip! Take good walking shoes and people dress really casual, even on a night people just wear jeans, with and hoodies or zip-up jackets, very relaxed place Distressing tips: Visiting coffee shops and bars, we went to Easy Times and Abraxas and visited the red light district where the nightlife is busy and had a drink in a few bars. Food experience: Hard Rock Cafe in Amsterdam was delicious, I ordered a cheeseburger with loaded fries, the fries were loaded with bacon, cheese and spring onion, they were the most amazing fries I've ever tasted, I could have eaten plateful after plateful of them they were SO good. Also, recommend a place called Chipsie King for when you're peckish, order a cone of fries with the mustard mayo sauce, the sauce was delicious and nothing like I've ever tasted before, they were out of this world. Sightseeing places: Amsterdam Ice bar, Heineken experience, Amsterdam sign located near Rijksmuseum, Anne Frank House and Van Gogh museum. "

2. London, United Kingdom Kings Cross for its multicolored light tunnel

Lastminute.com reviewer shares, "The sun was totally out when I visited London. Food was awesome. I tried to visit some of the well-known restaurants. Since the weather was good a lot of people/ tourist were in the scenic spots to visit and took photos as well. It's pretty amazing, and I am loving London so much Sightseeing places: London Eye, London Tower and London Bridge, Camden town, Buckingham Palace and it was my favourite as there was a parade when I visited it. Stating my friend's experience: We love to take photos so this is the experience that we enjoyed so much with my friend that I travel with. More photos more fun? I liked: Moment are countless when you shared it with a god friend. Like travel and food"

3. Budapest, Hungary Buda castle hill offers plenty of viewpoints

Lastminute.com reviewer Wendy adds, "March is a great time of year to visit Budapest. It was neither cold nor hot and, therefore, perfect weather for exploring the city. I can recommend the food markets in the Jewish quarter, 'Karavan' in particular. We also visited a delightful cafe in the nearby town of Szentendre called 'Levendula Kezmuves Fagylaltozo'. They serve delicious homemade lemonade and lavender ice-cream. If you get the chance to visit, make sure this is on your 'to-do' list. The ruin bars are well worth a visit, even if you are not a big drinker, but the most interesting cultural and historical sites are on the Buda side of the river. We took the funicular and explored the Castle area and fisherman's bastion - go early to avoid crowds! Did you know Houdini was born in Budapest? Here you can find a small museum 'Houdini Haz' dedicated to his life with some original props. The entrance fee includes a small magic show. Budapest has some unique experiences, one of the most remarkable is the 'Invisible Exhibition' (look it up! ). It's a little far but you can get a taxi for reasonably cheap. This is a marvellous initiative and an educational experience that I will remember for the rest of my life. I definitely recommend a visit. Tours in English are at certain times to make sure to book ahead The 3D gallery is the perfect place to take lots of fun photos with your friends. You can step right into the artwork and be as creative as you like with the poses. The exhibition is well worth the small entrance fee, which includes print outs of your photos and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We visited Thermal Bath on our final morning (9 am). We went early and took our own towels. At this time the pools were very quiet and very clean. The steam room was luxurious with fresh lavender perfuming the air. The baths themselves were warm and clean."

4. Florence, Italy River Arno weaves its way through the city making way for photography opportunities

Lastminute.com reviewer says, "I went to take photos and try out my new lens and I have taken some terrific pictures. I truly recommend a night at the Italian Opera in the beautiful little church of San Monaca just on the other side of the Ponte Alla Carraia and if in Florence for more than a couple of days, a trip out to Siena. You can catch a bus from the bus terminal for 16 Euros return. It takes about an hour each way. And of course, an absolute must is ice cream from the 'Perche No! ' Ice cream parlour (the 'Why Not' that also sells vegan ice cream. Distressing tips: Taking photos. Sightseeing places: ...Down by the river Arno. Self-experience: Trying out my new camera lens. I liked: The wonderful images I was able to capture due to the impromptu rain showers."

5. Lisbon, Portugal Overload on tiled facades and cobblestone alleys at Bairro Alto

Lastminute.com reviewer shares, "November. There was a shower every day. Ships cruise on the river Tejo. Nice sightseeing bus trip (west bound, Red buses). I had the 72h ticket, 40. 00 EUR. Extremely good seafood and wine and freshly roasted coffee and bakery products. I enjoyed the hotel SPA and an excellent therapeutic massage, 1 h for 60 I took hundreds of nice photos. Very friendly people, interesting conversations, brilliant architecture and big city life."
