Positano, Italy

Positano is one of the Amalfi Coast’s prettiest seaside villages but according to Sara, the atmosphere was way too “hectic”.

Sara told Express.co.uk: “While undeniably beautiful with its colourful buildings and seaside views, the narrow streets were packed shoulder to shoulder with other sightseers.

“The atmosphere felt more hectic than idyllic and prices were inflated for tourists. I left feeling like I never got to experience the real Positano beyond the chaotic surface.”

Amsterdam, Netherlands

The capital of the Netherlands has struggled with overtourism in recent years and has even launched a campaign to deter stag parties from visiting.

Sara said: “The city centre was overrun with rowdy bachelor parties riding bikes through crowded streets. The museums were packed and reservations at restaurants were impossible to get.”

Paris, France

The City of Love is one of Europe’s leading destinations but it left Sara feeling less than impressed.

She explained: “The congested boulevards of Paris and the never-ending lineups at attractions like the Eiffel Tower and Louvre strained my patience. I didn’t really enjoy the atmosphere as much as I was waiting to take shots.”

Mykonos, Greece

Sara said: “When I finally went to the Greek island, I thought it would be a tranquil haven. “Even while it was breathtakingly gorgeous, I felt that partygoers and inebriated vacationers overshadowed it. The restaurants were expensive and the beaches were noisy.”

A Greek resident shared on Reddit that they would never consider visiting Mykonos as it’s far too expensive.
