Our biggest sale on Europe - book by 30th June to get massive discounts on Contiki & more!

Why do travellers love Europe so much? Could it be the fact it's steeped in history, because their architecture can be quaint on one street and then magnificent on the next? Or how about the ridiculous amount of varying cuisine - from pasta in Italy, to tapas in Spain, or the fact that the European's love a good drink and know how to have a good time? Whatever it is that keeps drawing us back, it's all on offer right now - from sailing across the Mediterranean to visiting the magical city of Prague!
