London and France are always good, Spain is ever-popular, but Italian tastes can vary.

Emirates has revealed the top 10 most popular European destinations among its Australian travellers, from both the East Coast and West Coast of Australia.

This comes following news that Emirates is running another one of its ever-popular Europe sales, with economy class returns including prices from $1,369 (Dublin), $1,379 (Rome) and $1,399 (London).


The luxury airline runs services to 39 European cities, but the top ten remained fairly consistent for travellers all around Australia, with only a few differences.

Australians from both sides of the country love London and Madrid, but East Coast travellers favour Paris, while the West Coast prefers Rome. Meanwhile, West Coast travellers go to to Manchester, while the East Coast flies to Milan instead.

However, Athens, Amsterdam and Dublin are naturally popular with everyone.

The only German city to make the list was Frankfurt, most likely because it's Germany's main travel hub, as well as a superbly central entry point for the rest of the continent, while Spain dominates the top 10 with both Madrid and Barcelona being top destinations for Australians on both coasts.
