Europe stretches from Asia to the Atlantic, and from Africa to the Arctic. European countries welcome more than 480 million international visitors per year, more than half of the global market, and 7 of the 10 most visited countries in the world are European nations.
It's easy to see why – modern amenities and cities mean that we can have the same comforts in Europe as what we have here in the US. In addition, the history that dates back thousands of years, castles, cuisines, cultures, ruins, castles, art, stunning scenery, and so much more. One of the best things about visiting Europe travel is modern and easy when visiting multiple countries. Although it is the world's smallest continent in land surface area, there are profound differences between the cultures and ways of life in its countries.
Must-visits include France, Italy, Germany, Spain, and the United Kingdom. Don't let your sense of adventure fail you by missing out on Iceland or Scandinavia. For clear blue waters and island hopping, be sure to visit Greece or Croatia. For a more exotic European adventure, be sure to tour the Balkans.

Destinations in Europe:

France is the world’s most popular tourist destination known for its gastronomy, history, culture and fashion. Some of its tourist attractions include Paris, the French Riviera, the Atlantic beaches, the Alps, castles of the Loire Valley, Brittany, Normandy, and the rural landscape of Provence. Monaco is a beautiful, ultra-wealthy principality overlooking the Mediterranean.

Italy (Italy, Malta, San Marino, Vatican City). Rome, Florence, Venice and Pisa are on many travelers’ itineraries, but these are just a few of Italy’s destinations. Italy has more history and culture packed into it than many other countries combined.

Britain and Ireland (Guernsey, Ireland, Isle of Man, Jersey, United Kingdom). Britain is a diverse patchwork of native and immigrant cultures, possessing a fascinating history and dynamic modern culture, both of which remain hugely influential in the wider world. Ireland has rolling landscapes and characteristic customs, traditions and folklore.

Central Europe (Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Liechtenstein, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland). Central Europe is the region where Germanic culture meets Slavic culture. It is home to innumerable historic towns, fairy-tale castles, beer, forests, unspoiled farmland, and plenty of mountain ranges, including the mighty Alps and Carpathians.

Iberia (Andorra, Gibraltar, Portugal, Spain). The Iberian countries are great destinations for their rich and unique cultures, lively cities, beautiful countryside and friendly inhabitants.

Greece, Cyprus and Turkey. Counting the most amount of sun-hours in Europe, the Eastern Mediterranean is a haven for beach-goers, party-people and cultural enthusiasts alike.

Caucasus (Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan). A region presenting a remarkable mix of landscapes, ranging from high mountain peaks and wine-growing valleys to lush Black Sea resorts. Like the Balkans, Caucasus is at the intersection of Christian and Islamic cultures and is among the more “exotic” areas of the continent

Nordic countries (Denmark, Faroe Islands, Norway, Finland, Iceland, Sweden). Spectacular scenery of mountains, lakes, glaciers, geysers, waterfalls and volcanoes. Finland is culturally distinct as it has a language unlike the Scandinavian languages.

Benelux (Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands). The Netherlands is known for its clogs, cheese, tulips and windmills, and for its liberal attitudes and painters. Belgium is a multilingual country with beautiful historic cities, bordering Luxembourg at the rolling hills of the Ardennes.

Balkans (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, Kosovo and Serbia). Balkans have a rich, though often turbulent, history with wonderful nature, charming multicultural towns, impressive monasteries and citadels dotting the hillsides, and mountains with beautiful forests, pleasant lakes, and stunning beaches.

Baltic states (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania). Three fascinating states that have glorious beaches along an extensive coastline, medieval old towns, and beautiful natural scenery. Estonia has linguistic and cultural ties with Finland.

Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus. Russia is a country of vast, empty expanses that spans all the way east to the Pacific Ocean. Ukraine is a diverse country that has a lot to offer, from the beach resorts of the Black Sea to the beautiful cities Odessa, Lviv and Kiev. North of Ukraine lies Belarus, a country unlike anywhere else in Europe.
