There are so many treasures and new experiences waiting for you on a European holiday or tour. So when you come on a trip with Riviera Travel we’ll make sure you see not just the famous sights and unmissable places, but some of the unexpected and undiscovered corners that far fewer people know about. Whether you’re looking for cultural gems, breathtaking landscapes, bustling cities or some rural tranquillity, you can find it all just a short step from home – right here on your doorstep in the fascinating, endlessly different continent of Europe. There are European tours to suit the time you want to spend away – from a short three day break to a full two week holiday.
Is there anything to compare with the unmistakable atmosphere of the Mediterranean? In Spain and Italy you can still feel all around you the influence and historical footprint of so many former civilisations as you take in the ancient temples, amphitheatres, monasteries, villas and beautifully preserved old towns. And you may never want to leave behind the wonderful climate, the relaxed lifestyle and the classic cuisine.
Beyond Germany and the charms of the Moselle and Rhine Valleys, with their imposing castles, picture postcard villages and majestic river bends, lies a very different side of Europe. Come with us further east, to experience for yourself the huge change that followed the fall of the Berlin Wall. To Dresden, Krakow, Prague or Moscow perhaps – where timeless and traditional cultural pasts sit side by side with modern, optimistic new societies.
Where else could your European tour take you? France is only a short hop away by Eurostar. And beyond the endless delights of Paris there are so many other surprises to discover and enjoy – from the wild Camargue to the hauntingly beautiful Dordogne and the stunning châteaux of the Loire Valley.
Yet Europe has even more to tempt you with; the crisp, clean air of the lakes and mountains of Austria … the real Portugal of medieval towns, coastal forests, wild seascapes and fragrant forests … the extraordinary blend of ancient, Christian and Ottoman worlds in Turkey … the legendary Greece of Homer and Olympia … or the ancient temples of Malta that pre-date the pyramids by a thousand years. So Europe is waiting - your Riviera Travel European holiday is one step away!
