LIVING ON THE EUROPE
BEST WAYS TO HANG OUT: Cliff-diving is so much more fun when you’re naked, according to Corfu’s Pink Palace (546).
SO HOT RIGHT NOW. If you can’t take the heat, then don’t tour the active volcano on the Italian island of Stromboli (745).
THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS: Get your heart rate up fleeing the angry torns during the festival of San Fermines (Running of the Bulls; p. 944) in Pamplona.
BEST PLACE TO GO TO EXTREMES. Try sky diving, paragliding, canyoning, river rafting, or bungee jumping in Interlaken, Switzerland (984).
BACKPACKERS GONE WILD
When the museums close and the sun sets over the mountains, Europe’s wildest parties are just beginning. Edinburgh (238) has the highest concentration of pubs in Europe. When you’re all crawled out, join the students of Oxford (202) for a night of punting. Or, try sipping a strawberry daiquiri in Portugal’s Lagos (835), or along Spain’s Costa del Sol, where hip clubs line the beaches of Marbella (905). Don’t miss the Balearic Islands some clubs on Ibiza (957) open at 8am. For the true Spanish experience, join la Movida in Madrid (854) or try getting into the chic clubs of Barcelona (916). Afterward, flaunt your way to the one and only French Riviera (366), then let dynamic Milan (662) introduce you to Italian style. Head to the Greek islands for the beautiful beaches of Corfu (546) and for los (550), a frat party run amok. Prague (998) and Munich (492) know that discriminating drinkers don’t need a beach to get sloshed, and Amsterdam (767) trust us, it knows everything it needs and more than you want to know.
