Sunshades are up and sangria is in hand, it’s summer in Europe

Little rainfall and a daily average of 10 hours of sunshine mean there’s plenty of time to lounge on the beach, endeavour through a cultural epicentre and eat a locally made meal while watching the sunset over the horizon. Lively cities in Portugal, Poland and France celebrate their people, music and more with a display of lively festivities and events in June. You’ll find yourself amid a hum of traveller activity in cities like Venice and popular islands like Santorini as peak season brings in plenty of enthusiasm for exploration.

A tour in Europe can vary depending on the countries you want to visit, the style of tour, and how long you want to go for but you can expect to pay anywhere between USD$1,000 to USD$5,000, with most tours around USD$2,500. 

Whether or not you need a visa to travel to European countries largely depends on the nationality on your passport and whether the country you're travelling to is part of the Schengen Agreement. This agreement sees 26 European countries offer visa-free travel to nationals from 60 other countries including Australia, the United States, Canada, Japan, and the United Kingdom. 

To determine whether the country you're travelling to requires a visa, head to the Schengen Visa's information website.
