Headed to Europe? Here are 5 smaller destinations with fewer crowds
If you’re dreaming of going abroad this summer, countries in the European Union are gradually reopening their borders to residents of select countries around the world.
From July 10, people from England, for example, will be able to go to popular destinations such as France, Spain and Italy without having to quarantine on arrival or upon returning.
Important tip: Check individual countries’ updates before booking, since travel regulations can quickly change.
Instead of Santorini, try Syros
Santorini’s famous blue-topped, whitewashed buildings that spill down the island’s hillsides towards the sea have made it a magnet for travelers for decades. For a quieter (and less expensive) slice of Greek life, the island of Syros has a mixture of beautiful beaches and small towns to visit.
