When traveling, we try to visit new places and experience special sensations, collecting unforgettable memories. But cultural visits are not enough to experience a holiday intensely; it’s equally important to indulge in some fun. There are those who treat themselves with an afternoon of unbridled shopping, those who spend the evening going from one club to another in the night, and those who look for concerts, shows, and specific recreational activities.
All the most beautiful cities offer numerous entertainment opportunities but only some manage to stand out for the quality of the services offered to tourists and visitors. London is the capital of music, Amsterdam the capital of transgression, and Las Vegas the capital of gambling; each of these metropolises stands out for its charm and the type of entertainment offered. But, what are the European and World Capitals of entertainment?
Let’s check out the 10 most entertaining cities in the world!
10. Rome, Italy
Rome has managed to beat the competition of Milan and is actually the only Italian city on this list. It was awarded for the prestigious boutiques in the center, the wealth of events and shows, but most of all for its luxurious, elegant, and exclusive parties, which recall the atmosphere of the movie “The Great Beauty”. Rome is not really an economic city, but for those with good financial resources, it is certainly one of the most entertaining.
9. Tokyo, Japan
The 9th position may come as a surprise to many, but most young boys won’t be surprised at all. Tokyo is a modern city with great charm, a paradise for any fan of manga and videogames. The Tokyo Dome area is ideal for high-tech shopping, but the city also offers special solutions for tourists looking for beautiful girls: the famous Roppongi district is full of fantastic clubs and nightclubs.
8. Barcelona, Spain
In Barcelona, you spend the night indulging in the “ir de copas” (eng. “go for drinks”) or wandering from one bar to another in the city. Of course, the entertainment offer is quite vast and unusually heterogeneous. There are not only the discos and pubs scattered around the Las Ramblas district but also casinos and clubs where you can attend interesting live concerts.
7. New York, USA
New York is also called “the city that never sleeps”. There are over 100 clubs scattered throughout the New York neighborhoods, from lounge bars to “Sex and the city”, to the classic taverns to “How I met your mother”.
There is no shortage of luxury alternatives; the Big Apple is also home to Broadway, the portion of the homonymous street where about 500 theaters are located, including the Metropolitan Opera and Lincoln Center.
6. Ibiza, Spain
The main town of the homonymous island is one of the main reference points for youth tourism and its nightlife attracts thousands of visitors every year. The city enjoys incredible world-famous nightclubs, including Pacha.
It would have undoubtedly deserved a higher position if most of the events weren’t concentrated during the summer season.
5. London, UK
In the top five, we find London, the European capital of music. The English city is in fact one of the richest places in musical events and clubs, both, for the underground scene and the mainstream. It is a classy destination that offers numerous clubs with elegant atmospheres, many of which are concentrated in Leicester Square. It’s also a perfect city for shopping.
4. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Fantastic beaches and nightclubs make Rio de Janeiro one of the most entertaining cities. Copacabana beach is definitely one of the most popular places for young people as well as the main recreational point. But Rio shows its best during the celebrations of the famous Carnival with absolutely crazy, at the same time, damn fun parades and parties.
3. Amsterdam, Netherlands
The coffee shops and Red Light districts brought Amsterdam the bronze medal. The city is now synonymous with transgression, however, Amsterdam guarantees many other levels of entertainment to its tourists. There aren’t only clubs and bars, but also cultural and musical events.
2. Berlin, Germany
In the 2nd position, we find Berlin, the capital of Germany. It is one of the most complete and varied cities in terms of activities offered to tourists. Shops, discos, and clubs, but also concerts, events, and shows… there’s something for everyone! Moreover, Berlin is one of the top destinations for pay sex tourism… what else to say… there’s truly everything you can wish for.
1. Las Vegas, USA
Las Vegas, the city of sin! It couldn’t have been otherwise: the city of sin is also the most entertaining in the world. And then “Viva Las Vegas!” as the title of the historic film, in which “The King” Elvis Presley stars, says. Since then, “The Pelvis” has almost become a symbol of the craziest and most entertaining city in the United States of America. Casinos, strip clubs, shopping, and theatrical and musical performances are the main attractions of the real “Sin City”.
