Europe History and culture

Europe History & Culture Holidays

Introduction

A region as rich, diverse and historic as Europe has bountiful history and culture to discover. There are heritage sites all through the region and every country has a significant site or historic place to see; Italy in fact has 44 UNESCO World Heritage Sites alone, with the canals of Venice, the Coliseum, Pompeii, St Mark's Square and the Sistine Chapel just a few of the headliners.

Whether you travel to see the Alhambra or Sagrada Familia in Spain, the Pantheon in Rome, the Acropolis in Greece, Dubrovnik's old city in Croatia, Auschwitz in Poland, Cinque Terre in Italy, the Kremlin in Russia, Mont Saint-Michel in France, the Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany or any one of dozens of other important cultural stops throughout Europe, you'll discover a wealth of rich sites to explore

The Hermitage in Russia is one of the premier galleries in the world and an essential stop for visitors to St Petersburg, whilst the Louvre in Paris could detain you for days at a time and the Uffizi in Florence or Museo del Prado in Madrid are justifiably celebrated.

These are just a handful of the options available though. You can also tailor-make your history and culture holiday in Europe by adding a city stay, activity and adventure holiday, beach holiday or excursion to your itinerary; talk to a destination specialist to see what we can do for you.
