Many of us get restless when summer comes around. With the temperatures warming and the days getting longer, you might already be feeling the itch to jet set across the world. Luckily, it’s a great season to take a trip to many of the world’s greatest destinations for travel. The options are limitless, but we’ve got tips on some of the best spots for summertime travel. Here are just 5 of the best summertime destinations for your upcoming travel plans.


The picturesque city of Florence is a great place to visit in the summer. Freckled with outdoor cafes among the Renaissance architecture, it’s no wonder Florence is so full of art and history. This is a great summertime destination for travelers looking to soak up the sun, enjoy some excellent cuisine, and enjoy breathtaking views. Be sure to make bookings for Florence well in advance–the charm of the city in the summertime is well known to world travelers.


Summer is a beautiful time of year in Paris, France. With temperatures in the high 70s, you couldn’t ask for better sightseeing weather for some of the most famous landmarks in the world. While it is a popular tourist destination prone to crowds in the summer, seasoned travelers know to book visits to famous destinations like The Louvre in the early morning, leaving the afternoon open to picnics on the Luxembourg Gardens or even the lawns surrounding the Eiffel Tower.


This northern UK destination has a very short season for warm temperatures, so summer is a great time to visit. Here you’ll find outstanding landscapes, perfect for travel photography, along with some great performances at the world-renowned arts festival called Fringe Festival.


Dublin is a great travel destination for anyone looking for rich history during the daytime with plenty of lively nightlife to enjoy. Between landmarks like St. Patrick’s Cathedral and a plethora of classic Irish pubs, you’ll always be able to find something to do in this gorgeous city. Enjoy the breezy, mild temperatures of Ireland’s capital!

Machu Picchu

Summer in the Northern Hemisphere means winter below the equator. This makes the Peruvian climate more temperate in summer months. This weather, with very rare rainfall, is perfect for hikers looking to enjoy the picturesque Andes Mountains and the stunning world heritage site of Machu Picchu. Admission is limited to many of these sites in order to protect the archaeological sites and structures, so visits must be planned well in advance.
