Why Choose Europe?
Europe might be the world’s second smallest continent, but with 44 countries packed into an area around the size of Australia, no other boasts such dazzling diversity. It's infinitely travelable too; you can breakfast on waffles in Belgium, lunch in Luxembourg, and be in Spain in time for sunset.
You can’t fail to be impressed by the scope of Europe’s historic sites, and its cultural and artistic flair. From the Colosseum, and the Acropolis, to Stonehenge and the Palace of Versailles, the last 4,000 years of human history are writ large here. Walk in the footsteps of the gods in the ancient ruins of the Parthenon, explore the hallowed halls of the Vatican, and glide past the 14th Century marble palazzi on Venice’s canals, all in the same trip.
Europe’s no slouch when it comes to natural beauty either. From the jewel-like beauty of Croatia’s Plitvice Lakes and Tuscany’s rolling hills to the dramatic heights of the Norwegian fjords, and Iceland’s otherworldly Northern Lights, Mother Nature has excelled herself here.
With some of the most varied and beautiful coastlines in the world, Europe was made for beach holidays. Explore the crystal coves and turquoise waters of the Greek islands on an island-hopping adventure, spend the summer on Croatia’s sparkling Adriatic Coast, head to Santorini for black sands and superb sunsets, or hit the Balearics for a classic beach holiday with a side of hedonism.
And as for the food…from arancini in Sicily, and chichetti in Venice to steak frites in Paris, and souvlaki in Athens, Europe’s culinary traditions are as delicious as they are diverse. Who needs diets anyway?
