Lonely Planet’s team of Europe experts have trodden the back streets, climbed to every viewpoint, visited every attraction and sampled many a continental dining spot, all in the name of research (well, someone has to do it!). The result is their annual ‘Best in Europe’ list of the top 10 destinations they think you should see now, before the crowds find out.
