International Travel: European Tours

By Fran Walker

If you decide to take a vacation in Europe, your biggest problem will be deciding where to go!

There is such an array of fascinating, beautiful and exciting countries to visit during your European tour, each with unique cultures, climates and languages.

So where do you start?

Choosing Your European Tour

When deciding where to take your European tour, you should ask yourself some important questions:

  • What temperature would you prefer?
  • Do you want history and culture or beaches and bars?
  • Is scenery important?
  • When do you want to visit?

The last question is very important, for while Europe does not generally experience the extremes of weather seen in parts of the U.S., you will experience very different weather in the UK, for example, in July than in January.

Popular Europe Tours

If hot weather is important to you, a southern European tour in Italy or Greece would combine beaches with classical culture and architecture.

In western Europe, the south of France is also very popular for beaches, but tour further north and the temperature drops as the culture increases.

A northern European tour to Scandinavia or Denmark would offer you unparalleled natural beauty in colder climes. An eastern European tour in Russia or Poland offers fantastic scenery, culture and history.

If you want castles, natural beauty, history and good beer, then Germany is an excellent place to visit.

For all round culture, differing landscapes and pure character, the UK is tough to beat.

As you can see, booking a European tour requires plenty of research, but the rewards are indescribable.
