With a swirl of flamenco skirts and a dollop of Polish dumplings, Europe stretches from the Atlantic to the Black Sea, the Arctic to the Mediterranean. It's one of the most diverse and enthralling parts of the planet. In one corner the continent you could be toasting your toes by a crackling fire under the ski pistes of the French Alps. In another, you might be soaking up the rays on a Greek beach. Meanwhile, the myriad histories that gather here are enough to astound. There are tales of Roman emperors, romantic-era Bavarian castles, and Napoleonic battlefields– and that's only scratching the surface. And on top of all that? Foodies should get ready to enjoy Neapolitan pizzas next to British fish and chips, paprika-infused goulash after smoked Nordic fish. Cheap flights to Europe can be your ticket to all that and more.
Rome is the Eternal City and the Roman Forum is where it all began. Head there to see the ruins of the greatest European empire ever.
Whether you're hiking the wildflower meadows above Zell am See or whizzing down the pistes of Chamonix, the Alps are a must for any adventurer.
Island hopping in Greece is a real bucket list topper. It's an odyssey that promises stunning sunsets on Santorini and party nights on Mykonos.
