Perhaps the warmth of welcome and vibrant colours of the Mediterranean, where the boundless charms, Renaissance glories and unforgettable food of Italy, the contrasts of islands like Cyprus, Malta, Sardinia, Corsica and Sicily, and the newly rediscovered delights of Croatia, Montenegro and the Balkans provide endless fascination. Perhaps the Iberian flavours of Portugal and Spain, the alpine wonders of Switzerland and Austria, or Central and Eastern Europe’s Baroque treasures and preserved cities like Prague and Budapest, Vienna and Bratislava. Perhaps Europe’s northern fringes, where summer’s light banishes winter’s chill and the wonders of the Norwegian fjords, volcanic Iceland, Scandinavian or Baltic cities are revealed in all their glory. Or perhaps closer to home, where the rugged beauty and Celtic lore of Scotland and Ireland, and the Gallic charms of France are a relative few steps away. Wherever you choose to holiday in Europe, expect to be surprised, delighted and exhilarated, as you lift the veil on our neighbours’ wonders.
