Europe may be the world’s second smallest continent, but when it comes to cultural diversity, epic history, dazzling, natural beauty, and culinary overload, Europe is a big and bold contender for the epicurious, and adventurous traveler alike.
A place where mythical gods once walked the land, and ancient empires rose, conquered vastly, and ruled for centuries, Europe’s heritage alone offers a wealth of attractions. The winding canals of Venice, the birth of democracy in Athens, the Renaissance art in Florence, the majesty of Barcelona’s La Sagrada Familia, the enviable splendor of Paris, and the cultural melting pot of London, draw interest far from its shores.
Blessed with a temperate climate, Europe manages a diverse landscape of Alpine ruggedness, glimmering coastline, picturesque rivers and canals, sprawling cities, and hallowed soil that produces world-famous wines to please even the most critical connoisseur. Europe has imprinted its culture across the face of the continent, and today’s travelers are fortunate to revel in the footsteps of its countless delights.
