Europe is AMAZING. Fact. We could wax lyrical all day long about the beautiful beaches, great ski resorts, rich heritage, cultural diversity, buzzing cities etc etc. but as it is conveniently close to the UK we highly recommend you put one (or several) of its countries to the test.

Dave, Olga, Claudia and Flora are here to help give you the inside track.

Original Highlight

FOOD! We might be accused sometimes of taking for granted the HUGE variety of fine food on our doorsteps in Europe. Where else, however, can you find the home of such iconic dishes and ingredients within such a short distance. We're thinking Pain au Chocolat, Calamari, Greek Salad, Tortilla, Paella, Moules Frites, Schnitzel, Tiramisu, Pizza, Gravadlax, Tarte Tatin, Dolmades, Parmesan...we could go on.

A note on price

A no-expense-spared, tailor made Italian holiday exploring the country's artistic and cultural centres over a week – think Venice, Verona, Florence, Siena and Rome - staying in some of the world’s finest hotels can cost around £8,000 per person. However, a weekend city break can be done for £400 per person including flights. Learn more about our pricing
