A continent bursting at it borders with artistic and architectural treasures, cultural wonders, stunning landscapes, fascinating cities and glorious beaches, Europe really does have it all. If it’s beaches and pampering you’re after head to the islands of Greece, Croatia or Italy. Looking for something a little more rugged and heartening? Give Scotland, Sweden or Switzerland a go. And if it’s culture and shopping you have in mind, you can hardly go wrong with the cities of Paris, London, Rome or Madrid.
Even if you think you’ve done all there is to do, and seen all there is to see on this incredible continent, chances are there’s more to explore. Spain’s bounty extends beyond Barcelona for example, with the Alhambra in Granada or the coastal town of Cadiz or head to ancient Athens where the old and the new meet on its cobbled streets and famous ruins.
