Of Europe's 50-odd countries, there are surely a few that come to mind for their European appeal. Eating croissants in Paris, zipping around the streets of Rome on a Vespa or getting a bird's eye view of London from the London Eye - there are many famous settings for that Euro feeling. Once you've ticked the hotspots off your list such as London, Paris, Rome, Berlin, Athens, Barcelona and Amsterdam, all you have to decide is whether you'd rather soak up the sun in the Mediterranean, hit the ski slopes in Austria, drink your way through beer halls in Germany, explore mosques in Istanbul or enjoy the old world charm of Krakow.
While there are plenty of festivals and events all year round in Europe, October is undeniably a good month to visit Munich for Oktoberfest, the world's largest festival. Spain is the place to be in July, Pamplona to be specific, for the world-famous Running of the Bulls. Hogmanay in Edinburgh will be a New Year's Eve you won't forget, or mark March 17 in your diary for St Patricks Day in Dublin when the city throws its biggest, greenest, party of the year. There are endless possibilities for tours, festival-related or otherwise, all over Europe from the peaks of Switzerland to the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Our Europe tours offer even more options.
