Where to go on your vacation in Europe

If you are thinking about a vacation or multi-city tour in Europe then you may be feeling overwhelmed by the huge number of places available to visit. Europe is full of wonderful countries, each with a unique charm and culture, and there is no shortage of attractions, including UNESCO World Heritage Sites, theme parks, ancient ruins, sandy beaches, lush green parks and historic buildings. So, with all this choice, where should you go on your vacation?!

The answer to this really depends on what you want from your vacation or tour. If you’re looking for rest and relaxation, perhaps a beach holiday in Sardinia would suit you or a yoga retreat in Greece, or maybe you’re looking to experience the diverse culture of Europe, in which case, you may be tempted by a multi-city tour of London, Rome and Paris. Here, we give you some tips on where to visit based on your interests.

For rest and relaxation

If you’re longing to spend your days relaxing on the beach or reclining by the pool in the warm sunshine, then the south of Europe is for you. For a luxurious beach holiday, you can’t beat the sandy beaches and crystal waters of Sardinia. However, if your budget is a little tighter then you may like to consider Funchal in Greece or Málaga in Spain.

If you want something spiritually rejuvenating then consider a yoga retreat on the Italian coast or a Greek island. Alternatively, you could enjoy a spa break in the English countryside and immerse yourself in nature and tranquility.

For families

Europe is an excellent choice for a special family holiday and there are a number of resorts that cater to families. For example, you could enjoy a trip to Disneyland in Paris, which has rides and activities to suit a wide range of ages – you could visit the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame Cathedral too. England also has a number of popular theme parks, including Alton Towers, Thorpe Park and LegoLand, and London is particularly enjoyable for children as they can immerse themselves in the captivating history of this famous city at The Tower of London and visit The Queen at Buckingham Palace.

If you would like more culture on your family vacation to Europe then we suggest a multi-city tour of Rome and Lake Garda in Italy. The children will love GardaLand, which is a theme park near Lake Garda, and you will love the laid-back atmosphere of the Italian lakes and the multitude of historical sights in Rome, not to mention the delicious food!

For nature lovers

Perhaps you live in the city and are looking for a vacation that returns you to nature. In that case, it is our pleasure to recommend Croatia, which is fast becoming one of Europe’s most popular holiday destinations. It is a wonderful country to visit year-round and there are tranquil islands to discover, such as the Kornati archipelago, as well as the stunning national parks – Krka and Plitvice in particular boast astonishing waterfalls.

For an active holiday

If you want to enjoy the outdoors on your family vacation then you may like to consider Ireland. We particularly recommend the Giant’s Causeway, which is a series of basalt columns from an ancient volcanic eruption - it is a wonderful place to enjoy hiking as there are many pretty walking trails. We also thoroughly recommend visiting Killarney, which is a pretty walking town with plenty of trails to enjoy. It also features Ireland's first national park, an expanse of woodland, sandstone mountains and low-lying lakes, and is the perfect place to enjoy walking, biking and, of course, the charming Irish people.

However, if you want to mix some sunshine with your active holiday then you may like to consider a multi-stop tour in Tuscany. Here you can soak up the Italian sunshine in Viareggio or Elba island and also enjoy walking or cycling in Lucca, which is a lesser-known Italian town with ancient city walls that are perfect for walking, running and biking on. It also has an annual summer festival, when famous acts perform. Past acts include the Backstreet Boys, Simply Red, Bryan Adams and Billy Idol, to name a few.

For a city break

If you prefer the hustle and bustle of city life then think about a multi-city tour in Europe. There are excellent transport links between countries, meaning that getting around couldn’t be simpler. Cities that work well together include London, Paris and Venice, and Budapest, Zagreb and Rome. However, the combinations are endless as there are many internal flights between European countries, as well as trains and coaches.
