The endless variety of Europe means it's hard to think of a single thing that links all 50 countries together. The staggering architecture? It's certainly beautiful, from Moorish to Baroque to Renaissance… The food? Fantastically diverse, with piquant herbs and spices, the freshest produce and innovative, scene-stealing restaurants in every city. What about the scenery? The landscapes vary from mountains (the Alps) to moonscapes (Cappadocia), and in some instances you can go from skiing to the beach in a single afternoon. As a continent, Europe's many regions are often characterised by its national staples;tapas from Spain, pizza from Italy, bratwurst from Germany or souvlaki from Greece. But were you aware that you can also find some of the world's greatest sushi in Russia, the finest Indian food in England and the Netherlands, or authentic Middle Eastern falafel in Sweden? Europe doesn't discriminate when it comes to a tasty morsel.

But its single greatest draw is surely its scenic sights;an almost unimaginable wealth of attractions, from the birthplace of democracy in anarchic Athens to the romantic domes and spires of Florence's unmistakable skyline. Canals are no more beautiful than under the dreamy light that seeps through Venice's watery streets, beaches no more scenic than in the Greek Islands or Croatia, while multi-layered, multi-cultural influences have shaped ancient cities like Rome, Barcelona and Paris into pulsating, brilliant hotbeds of innovation and activity. So where to begin? Like all great adventures it's best to start slow, but once you've dipped beneath Europe's frankly stunning surface, you'll be hooked for life.

Europe with A&K
With A&K Luxury European Holidays, we know the best places to stay, the liveliest bars and the most romantic retreats in the myriad of short-break destinations, enabling you to experience the most iconic cities and towns in Europe at their zenith. Our people on the ground will ensure you get a table at the most fashionable restaurant, entry to the latest exhibition or tickets to the hottest play. To help you fully appreciate a city's true verve, they will introduce you to best local markets, the coolest cafes, the artisan areas and the more quirky aspects of your city of choice. They will guide you around world-famous sights, offering a fresh perspective or insight that few mainstream visitors will be exposed to.

Just a short hop and you could be enjoying avant-garde Barcelona, the fabulous treasures of St Petersburg or fashionable Monaco. Europe still holds us in its sway, oozing culture, sophistication and metropolitan jewels. The Eastern Mediterranean encompassing Greece, Cyprus & Turkey is a fascinating arena of antiquity where the enduring imprint of ancient empires - Greek and Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman - is still evident. Europe and Asia rub shoulders beside the waters of the Bosphorus in glamorous Istanbul.

Take to the water and enjoy a river or canal cruise the most scenic way to see Europe at its best. Why not choose the heart of Europe along the Danube and join an A&K crafted group trip with our signature touches of private and exclusive visits. If you are looking for a beach break close to home then the golden sands of the Italian Islands, Portugal's Algarve coast as well as Greece with its islands and Cyprus the last our post before you hit the Middle East.

Guest Testimonial

I am very hard to please and as mentioned previously, we have been on many holidays in South East Asia. I think that what makes the A & K holiday better than those was that every day was superb. Things just seemed to get better and better. It would be very hard for me to suggest how this holiday could have been made any better.
