Home to some of the world’s most iconic cities, Europe is renowned for its art, culture and history. From the ancient monuments of Rome to the edgy cool of Berlin, the sheer diversity on offer across the continent is the main attraction. Different languages, architectural styles and historical remains create such a wealth of choice in a relatively small space. All of which means you can stroll the boulevards of Paris, eat tapas in Madrid and visit the Communist relics in the former Eastern Bloc countries all in the same week.
Paris - The city of romance, Paris is one of the most visited destinations in the world and for good reason. Drink in the views from the top of the Eiffel Tower, sip wine on the Champs Elysees or see some of the world’s greatest masterpieces up close in the Louvre with a hotel in Paris.
Rome - The city is like a living museum, home to some of the most incredible architectural and historical treasures. Book a hotel in Rome and imagine great gladiatorial competitions in the Colosseum, wish for good luck at the Trevi Fountain or even pay the Pope a visit in Vatican City.
Berlin - For a city once almost destroyed, then divided by ideologies, Berlin has shown remarkable signs of recovery. So much so that it’s now considered one of the coolest places on the planet. From your hotel in Berlin you can visit the galleries and bars of Kreuzberg, hang out with hipsters in Nuekölln or take in the historic sites of downtown Mitte.
Iberian Peninsula - Home to both Spain and Portugal, this vast body of land hangs from the bottom edge of Europe. Renowned for its incredible food, laid back attitudes and beautiful sunshine, explore cities like Porto, Seville and Lisbon or simply book a hotel by the beach.
Visit some of the world’s best museums, including the Louvre, Florence’s stunning Uffizi Gallery or Madrid’s majestic del Prado. Go boutique shopping in fashion capitals Milan and Paris or visit some of the continent's most recognisable attractions, including the Leaning Tower of Pizza, Buckingham Palace and Barcelona’s vast Sagrada Familia. Then there’s the whole of the ‘New Europe’ to the east, including thriving Poland, the charming Czech Republic and historic Hungary.
Sample French fine dining, Belgian beer and Italian rustic cooking on a gastronomic tour. Visit the continent’s many wine regions in Spain, France, Italy and more. Take a trip behind the Iron Curtain to the former Communist countries of Estonia and Latvia or head north to modern and progressive Scandinavia. With such a diverse network of cultures and countries to explore, Europe lays it all out in front of you. And with good road, rail and flight options, seeing as much as you can is a real possibility on any trip.
