Europe has long fascinated visitors from all over the world. Its pivotal history, ground-breaking art and architecture, diverse landscapes, celebrated wine and gastronomy and distinct cultural practices make it a highly rewarding destination with a wide array of world-class attractions. Our Europe specialists can help you explore it all, from the art and architecture of the Renaissance to the rugged beauty of the Scottish Highlands and the hilltop medieval towns of Provence.
The history, architecture, art, literature and music varies enormously from place to place, but the past remains a distinctive presence at every turn. You can wander cobbled streets and alleyways unchanged for centuries, or meander through vineyards among the oldest in the world. Europe is a place to revel in history, celebrate art and culture, lose yourself in live music, walk on cliff tops and mountains and discover a vibrant mix of old and new.
