Going outside your comfort zone through travel can sometimes be a very scary thing. Immersing yourself in new cultures, trying to understand a different language, and navigating unknown territories can be difficult – especially when traveling alone. However, these cities make it easy for solo travelers to visit.
Paris is not just a destination for couples. Traveling alone in Paris could be just as magical. The city streets are easily walkable and the metro system has stops at all the big attractions. The city center alone has multiple sites right next to each other (such as the Louvre, Champs-Élysées and Palais Royal), making it simple to cross items off your to do list.
Stockholm is a beautiful city with welcoming cobblestoned, pedestrian-only streets and boutique shops and restaurants. Sweden has been ranked as one of the happiest countries in the world, and that shows through Stockholm’s extremely low crime rate (which makes for a very welcoming population). There are free walking tours galore that are normally packed with solo travelers, which is a great way to make a friend along the way.
Lucerne, located on the northern tip of Lake Lucerne, is a charming city with small town feels. The main attractions, the Chapel Bridge and Water Tower, lie directly in the middle of the city, making them easy to locate. The city is easily walkable, and the railroad station is very close to Old Town.
