Ah, Europe. What is it about sun-soaked vineyards, snowy mountain peaks, cobbled lanes and the smell of fresh-baked croissants that draws 460 million people each year? Perhaps it's that feeling of walking back in time, a baguette under one arm. Sailing along the Cote d’Azur, with the waves of the Med lapping against the hull, or browsing Venetian market stalls, you can’t help but get swept up in the sheer romance of the place. This is the land of Coco Chanel and Bridget Bardot, of Da Vinci, Pavarotti and Puccini. There’s subversive street art for the hip, farm-fresh food for the hungry and a cathedral full of culture for those plagued by incurable wanderlust.

New trips in Europe

You can never reach the bottom of Europe. Every year it throws up new surprises. In 2015 we’ll nibble cannoli on the shores of Taormina, watch the aurora light up Iceland’s night sky, chill out in a Romanian ice hotel and wander through the emerald pools of Plitvice. The worst part of new trips in Europe? Picking your favourite.
