Experience the grandeur of Europe.
Whether you're going to London for the first time, or expanding your European repertoire, Europe is a one-of-a-kind destination of iconic, historic, and culturally-defining sights and sounds.Discover your Europe »
Unwinding in pubs in London, discovering castles in Ireland, chasing the Northern Lights in Scandinavia, indulging in food and wine in Italy, sailing by Croatia and Greece, discovering art in Spain and France, there’s no other part of the world that plays such a fundamental role in all of our favourite things. Here are a few more reasons why we love Europe:
“Europe is my favourite continent, and London is the perfect gateway to Europe. You can wander the streets of London, taking in the art and the history and the food, and then hop on a quick flight or train to Paris, Madrid, Amsterdam, and more – and do it all over again.”Heath Colliar, Flight Centre Guilford
"I love Europe because of the food. I still dream about the cup of coffee I had one day in Sorrento…”
Aaron Levine, Flight Centre Toronto
“Paris is truly a romantic city. The evening colours look spectacular when you're biking along the Seine. After biking for a while, stop, sit on a bench, and enjoy some cheese and wine while watching little cruise boats sail by. It's easy to fall in love here.”Angel Tse, Flight Centre New Westminster
There is so much to do in Europe, but here are some of the experiences that absolutely can’t be missed for a first (or second, or third, or fourth) time in Europe.
When you go to Europe depends on what you’d like to see and how you like to travel.
Prefer long, sunny days and lots of festivals? Go in the height of summer for the most buzz – but this also means the most expensive and the busiest travel times.
A big shopping fan? Europe’s Christmas markets are incredible and it’s a very unique time to be travelling the continent, but the days will be shorter and the weather cooler.
The shoulder seasons of autumn and fall present the best of both worlds. Days tend to stay long and warm in September, without the crowds. October brings beautiful fall colour in the north, and stays pleasant in the south. Flowers reappear in April and May and smaller attractions that were closed over the winter will reopen.
But whenever you want to travel, Europe’s got a great destination and activity for you.
We have hundreds of travel experts who have hopped on the Eurail, eaten their way through Italy, discovered Christmas markets in Eastern Europe and beached in Portugal, France, Greece and more. Here are a few of their top travel tips for your vacation to Europe.
