Ancient ruins, medieval towns, sun-kissed beaches and snow-capped mountains give Europe holidays a diversity of landscape and culture that no other continent can match.
France continues to charm Brits thanks to sophisticated Paris, Provence's lazy charm and the glamorous Riviera. Over the Pyrenees, Spain holidays are about so much more than sandy beaches, with attractions including lively Barcelona and the amazing Alhambra palace.
Italy tours offer a rich blend of Roman ruins, such as the Forum and Colosseum, plus atmospheric medieval cities and rustic food. Greece, too, has a fabulous classical heritage and irresistibly slow pace of life.
Germany and Austria's forests, rivers and valleys are perfect for walking holidays and river cruises, while further east lie the charming cities of Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic and Russia.
And don't forget the UK's highlights, including thriving London, historic York, the gardens of Cornwall and the rugged mountains of the Scottish highlands.
