Europe

Prior to the 20th century convulsions that tore it apart, Europe was long the centre of world affairs and the legacy of its glorious past can be seen in its diverse architecture, splendid art galleries and rich culinary traditions. From the minute Vatican State with an official birth rate of zero to bustling cities of millions, Europe is a continent of contrasts.

Art

The galleries of Italy, France and Spain awe visitors with collections that have few rivals anywhere else on the planet. Museums such as the Louvre in Paris, the Prado in Madrid or the Uffizi in Florence are known to almost anyone who has ever held a paintbrush in their hands. However, in a continent that breathes art, some European cities seem to have been designed by artists who adorned them with lavish frescoes and intricate fountains.

Food

Be it a coffee in Milan or a freshly cooked croissant in Paris, Europe is a paradise for foodies. You could easily base your vacation just around local culinary traditions in some countries. Former French President, Charles de Gaulle, once lamented that it was impossible to govern a country with 246 different types of cheese. Recent events suggest that the ‘Old Continent’ may still be ungovernable, but it also maintains its almost unequalled rich variety of food produce.

Lesser known but also enchanting…

An art museum in the middle of the Danish countryside or a world capital where you can visit the sewers, Europe has its fair share of travel secrets.

Get away from the queues for the headline museums and discover the lesser known places and people who give the continent a human face.
