Guide to Luxury Holidays in Europe

Historic city breaks, sun-splashed island getaways, and scenic cross-country rail journeys – a luxury holiday to Europe can be so many things. Journey to Greece, the birthplace of democracy, and you can unearth thousands of years of culture in a blissful setting. In the Peloponnese or the Greek Islands you'll wander winding backstreets, swim in glittering turquoise waters, and sample exquisite Mediterranean cuisine – all against the backdrop of spectacular ancient ruins. Closer to home, Portugal promises Medieval castles, unbelievable coastal scenery, and a capital city that blends scenic spectacle with lively urban buzz. Head north to Scandinavia and you can experience a different way of life. Take a river cruise through the fjords, stroll through the cobbled streets of stylish port cities, and marvel at the Northern Lights. In Italy, the sprawling inland cities are dominated by centuries of art, history and cuisine, while the coastlines promise unbelievable natural scenery and a slow pace of life. If you’re seeking beachside bliss, some of the best experiences can be had on island nations such as Cyprus, where year-round warm weather and excellent beach resorts make this historic island a dream destination.

You can visit Europe in any season. In the central cities, where history and culture abound, there’s enough to keep you busy – no matter the weather. With many southern regions staying warm year-round, you can enjoy winter getaways. Across the continent the warmest, driest weather occurs between April and September, and the summer months are the most popular time to travel. In winter and early spring, you can hit the slopes of the ski resorts or head north for a glimpse of the Northern Lights.
Before travelling to Europe you should research the passport and visa requirements for your destination at GOV.UK. During your trip, make sure you carry your passport with you and keep a photocopy of your official documents.
A luxury holiday to Europe lets you sample cuisine from around the world. In the major cities, international restaurants sit on every corner. In the coastal resorts, luxury hotels serve up delicacies inspired by local traditions and global trends. In the south, the Mediterranean diet revolves around tomatoes, olive oil, garlic and fresh seafood. In the north, you’ll sample German sausages, Belgian chocolate, and Viennese coffee. And of course, fine wines can be enjoyed everywhere. From the boulangeries of Paris to the tavernas of Greece, Europe is true foodie heaven.
