Europe contains more countries than Asia, a continent five times its size. This is both a testament to Europe's extraordinary cultural diversity…and to the inhabitants' unerring ability to have a punch up and then redraw the boundaries every few years.
Europe is a continent with an extraordinarily rich heritage in what is a relatively small area. That the region in question also incorporates towering mountain ranges, beautiful beaches and pretty much everything in between makes it all the more travel-worthy. Culture vultures and adrenaline junkies alike will find plenty to keep them interested on a luxury holiday to Europe, and there's not an overnight flight in sight.
The Original Travel team have lived, worked and travelled in the vast majority of European nations, and we have spent the last few years sampling the Continent's finest hotels, landscapes, cities and restaurants so we can point you in the right direction when you're there.
