With an intriguing history replete with exploration, art, invention, conquest, and cuisine, Europe has made an impact throughout the world. Similar to the people that visit, each of its over 40 countries has its unique personality with a variety of culture, history, style and landscapes. Europe is not “one size fits all”.
With such a diversity of choices, it’s difficult to decide where to spend your European vacation. Lucky for you, I’m here to share some uniquely European experiences that can be artfully tailored for five traveler types.
1. The “Been There Done That” Traveler
Puglia –Italy is still on top when it comes to visiting Europe. If you’ve already been to Rome, Tuscany, and the Amalfi Coast, come to Puglia! Italy’s “heel of the boot” is perfect for those who want an Italian holiday off the beaten path.
2. The Romantic Traveler
Greek Isles – If stunning sea views, delicious food, relaxation and fun activities are what make a vacation for you, look no further than the Greek islands. Greece checks all the boxes for a picture-perfect romantic trip – honeymoon, anniversary or babymoon!
River Cruise – River cruising is a romantic way to celebrate your love and the beautiful destinations you’ll see – and only unpack once. It’s the perfect all-inclusive European vacation.
The Dolomites – You’ll feel like you’re walking into a postcard when you visit this alpine region of Italy. The Dolomites are perfect for the active traveler who enjoys skiing, hiking, cycling, and rafting. Great for all seasons, this slice of the Alps guarantees plenty of thrills.
Iceland – Iceland is on fire – well, not literally. In the land of fire and ice, you can enjoy hot baths, scuba in the Silfra Fissure, explore ice caves, and see the Northern Lights. Adventure and adrenaline addicts – Iceland is for you!
4. The Family Traveler
Villas – A villa is a great option for families looking for an immersive experience in a destination, for extended families traveling together, and for families that really enjoy being in a “home away from home”.
Guided Tours – When you want the entire trip to be EASY, guided small group tours with Tauck deliver fantastic family vacations with some lagniappe (something extra) sprinkled in along the way. Activities cater to all members of the family (grandparents to parents to teenagers to younger kids). With relaxation, education, and entertainment on the agenda, this style of travel appeals to all ages. All you have to do is show up!
Croatia – The Dalmatian Coast is gorgeous and boasts the best fresh seafood and truffles I have eaten in Europe!
Burgundy Region – Some of the very best wines come from the Burgundy region of France. With small, discrete vineyards, the best white and red wines really show their terroir. Regional cuisine includes boeuf bourguignon, coq au vin, and escargots.
Europe’s diversity is on display in its variety of culture, history, style and landscapes. With so many options, you’re sure to one to fit your style. So, what type of traveler are you?
