Tourist crowds in Europe got you down? Break out of the rut and take your next trip somewhere new with Rick's picks of under-the-radar destinations:
Dive into 20th-century history in Gdańsk, breathe in the heavenly aroma of gingerbread in the red-brick town of Toruń, and soak up the creative culinary energy of Warsaw.
Pécs (pronounced “paych”) is packed with top-notch museums, while Eger offers a tranquil main square, gorgeous Baroque architecture, and a small-town feel.
For a taste of authentic Italy off the mainland, Sicily has a few rough edges…and far fewer crowds.
Explore high-mountain pastures, sample the local budget foodie scene, and stroll the cobbled streets of cozy Ljubljana.
