New Year's Eve is coming and if travelers ever find themselves in Europe during the Holidays, then there's no question they've landed in the right continent.

It's all about the fireworks, the endless stream of party people and of course, the best countdown experiences in town. Go beyond New York City and discover how these European cities celebrate and welcome 2014.

1. Istanbul, Turkey

It may not be the first thing that comes into mind when NYE talks surface but Istanbul offers its unique and festive way of celebrating this time of the year.

Start the night off with a traditional Turkish dinner called meze somewhere more quiet, like in the area of Bebek then join the NYE crowd booming the pedestrian streets of Taksim. If tourists opt for a slight different but surreal experience of watching the fireworks go off on midnight, booking a 12:00MN cruise along Bosphorus river is the best bet.

2. London, Great Britain

It's no surprise that London can get wet and cold during the holidays but it never stopped both locals and tourists to party the night away on New Year's Eve while in the city.

The town boasts of exciting themed parties like a medieval banquet in St. Katherine's Dock or a winter wonderland in Hyde Park. As the fireworks go off and the people roar throughout the night in the banks of Thames, the Big Ben chimes are also heard all throughout the city.

3. Paris, France

NYE in Paris goes beyond lovely and romantic. In fact, it's the time of the year where both locals and tourists come together to watch the Eiffel Tower glow and sparkle as they party along Champs Elysee. The Parisian streets are literally packed with an almost perfect view of Montmartre.

In the areas of Piagelle, those who opt to hang out with fewer crowds but with an equally festive and grand time will find this place most delightful.

There's no doubt Europe packs a lot of surprises any time of the year, especially when it's about to welcome another year.
