With 50 countries across the regions of Europe, opportunities to explore feel almost endless.

For history buffs, there are battlegrounds, monuments, and museums. For cultural explorers, there are castles, markets, and immersive experiences. For foodies, there are Michelin-starred restaurants, cooking classes, and food markets. For outdoor and nature enthusiasts, there are mountains, parks, and fjords to explore.

Europe has it all. And we love it all.

From the food markets of Provence to the wineries of Tuscany, Europe is delicious. From Ireland’s green rolling hills to the pristine beaches of Albania, it is beautiful. From the couture capital of Paris to the hot springs of Budapest, Europe is a cultural playground.
