A recognized expert in business and finance, Dr. Antonios Antoniou has received numerous accolades throughout this career, including recognition in the Jean L. Heck and Philip L. Cooley study, “Most Prolific Authors in the Finance Literature: 1959–2008.” In his leisure time, Antonios “Tony” Antoniou enjoys travel and has visited many cities throughout Europe.

London, Paris, and Berlin are often among the cities that top the lists of travelers to Europe. While those are great destinations, there are lesser-known European cities that offer visitors wonderful visual and cultural experiences. Here are two of the most underrated cities in Europe.

Called the “Venice of the North” because of its system of canals, Bruges, Belgium, often takes a backseat to Antwerp and Brussels among visitors to the country, but Bruges is filled with stunning medieval architecture and art. Bruges is where Michelangelo’s famous sculpture, Madonna and Child, currently resides.

Dublin may get most of the attention from tourists visiting Ireland, but Cork can be just as appealing. With friendly locals and a layout that’s easily navigable, the often dubbed “real capital of Ireland” boasts a subdued vibe and is recognized for its focus on high-end cuisine.
