From the Michelangelo’s transcendent ceiling in the Sistine Chapel to the deep and distant waters of Lake Baikal, Europe is a treasure box that combines cultural and natural beauty with ease. You can explore the backstreets of Rome on a Vespa, kayak on the sparkling waters of Lake Como, or revel in a ballet performance in Moscow’s stately Bolshoi Theatre.
You can also explore thousands of years of history, including some of the world’s best-preserved ancient Greek temples in Sicily, cutting-edge fashion in Milan, imperial palaces in St Petersburg and medieval churches in the European countryside. Our Europe specialists can help you explore it all, from the art and architecture of the Renaissance in its homeland of Italy to the relics of the tsarist era.
