You don’t need to escape to far-flung corners to find idyllic beaches, hiking trails winding through knockout mountain scenery, or UNESCO-listed world heritage archaeological sites. All this is so tantalisingly close to home if you just hop over into Europe. This is a continent that’ll never let you down: you can perch on white-sand beaches, clink Aperol Spritz under the shadow of grand dame sights, hide away in enchanting forests beneath the midnight sun, and meet artists-of-the-moment in city pop-up galleries. From the Corsican coast, to the Spanish islands, the Scottish moors to Berlin’s infectious creative energy, Europe holidays will sweep you off your feet.
