10 Of The Best Walking Cities In The World

Wanderlust October 18, 2018 By Hugo

We can spend hours of our holidays stuck in traffic. It’s a side of travelling the tourist leaflets won't tell you about when you decide to book that romantic weekend break in Rome. Sometimes, the whole holiday can be dictated by bus times, long-haul train delays and major traffic jams- but it doesn’t have to be. 


Choose wisely and your next holiday destination could be explored almost entirely by foot! In Europe alone, there are a plethora of cities that can be seen and explored by merely putting one foot in front of the other. 

Here, we detail 10 of the world's most walkable cities.

If you're ever contemplating a trip to one of Europe's premier cities, then your first port of call should be Barcelona. It has everything. Tawny-sanded beaches. Sprawling mountains. An easy-to-navigate city center. World-class culture. Mouth drawing tapas. A dry climate all-year-round. Best of all, not only is the main airport is little more than a 15-minute drive away, the majority of the city can be explored on foot!

If you find yourself in the popular Gotic quarter, everything from the Picasso museum and La Ramblas to the sprawling Barcelonetta Beach and the bustling city centre of Placa De Catalunya can be reached without setting foot on a metro. That said, for the popular tourist destinations, such as Park Guell and La Sagrada Familia, a short metro/bus journey is required should you be staying in the centre.
