What is spring time best known for? Floral abundance; and that is exactly what the city of Amsterdam is famous for. In the abode of tulips, bicycle rides within Amsterdam and in the countryside are an exhilarating experience. The Keukenhof Gardens, carpeted with the much celebrated flower of the region, its seven million flowers, is a riot of colors. These gardens are located a few miles out of Amsterdam, in Lisse, and they are open from mid-March till mid-May for visitors each year.

Centrally located in Italy, Tuscany is a must visit if you are in the country. With its unspoilt picture perfect locations, wavy, gently rolling sun-kissed hills, rich food, wine and culture, this feels like a place where time takes its own time to pass. Matera is another place in Italy that is worth a visit. Enveloped in the raw beauty of white stone settlements, its mystical history lies in the prehistoric cave dwellings, baroque palazzo and the rock churches.

5. Seville and Caceres, Spain

Made famous by its bullfighting, Seville makes up for the quintessential spring holiday in Europe. Seville has the oldest (still in use) royal palace in Europe and the world’s largest gothic cathedral. A walk around this historical city in the daytime is enthralling, and its nightlife is something that will not disappoint. Caceres is blissfully untouched and its wilderness and medieval feel is something that you should go for. On full bloom in springs, it has been given the World Heritage Status, and rightly so.
