Europe is the most visited continent on the planet and for good reason. From world-renowned cities to medieval castles and hill-top villages, Europe is steeped in history and multi-layered cultures. The landscapes can be breath taking, from snow-covered mountains to lush river valleys, vine-covered hills and rugged coastlines. In fact in 2019 six of the top ten most-visited countries in the world were in Europe – including the top two – France and Spain.
Europe offers amazing experiences for every traveller and every interest. There are the big- ticket items like the Eiffel Tower or Rome’s Colosseum as well as hidden by-ways to explore, exotic palaces and gardens to lose yourself in, and fjords and rivers to cruise. History is everywhere, and spans millennia from the Roman Empire and the Vikings to the French Revolution and the World Wars. There are world class restaurants and local markets to discover, as well as sensational walking, cycling and cruising. You can journey by super-fast train, romantic luxury train, or slowly by barge through picturesque regions like Provence and the Loire Valley.
