“#The Most Walkable Cities: 30 Cities You Can Easily Explore On Foot”
Going on foot is one of the best ways to really immerse yourself in a destination, allowing you to interact with locals and admire architecture in a way that wheeled transport just doesn’t quite offer. There’s also the fact that you can travel entirely at your own pace, pausing whenever something takes your fancy (or tempts your tastebuds!) Pack a pair of flat and comfortable shoes and hit these cities you can easily explore on foot.
1. Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Walking is by no means the only way to see this charming European city – biking is hugely popular, and drifting along the canals to view the city from the water is also an idyllic way to explore. That said, your own two feet can get you around with no trouble – Amsterdam is compact and relatively flat, with many of the city’s most popular attractions within easy reach of one another, and the cobbled, winding distances between them enjoyable in their own right.
2. Venice, Italy
As a car-free city, it’s hard to think of anywhere more walkable than Venice. Naturally, a gondola ride will probably form at least a part of your experience of The Floating City, but when it comes to really exploring, take to the narrow streets, charming bridges and atmospheric alleys to really get a sense of place. Get lost willingly: some of the best and most unexpected gems in this magical city are hidden deep in its folds, away from the known tourist attractions.
