Each country has a distinct identity and pride in their national heritage.

Rome has countless Renaissance palaces and churches whilst Geneva in Switzerland boasts a beautiful Gothic and Romanesque town center. Bruges, in Belgium, is virtually a living museum - it is the best preserved Medieval city in Europe.
Certain Western European cities have been synonymous with romance for centuries - the magic of a gondola ride through Venice or the view from the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris is unforgettable. Equally romantic are the wild islands off the coast of Scotland and the verdant hills of the Irish countryside.
The French, Italian, Swiss and Austrian Alps are a collection of stunning snowcapped peaks which offer excellent skiing and hiking. They provide a breathtaking backdrop for some lovely villages which often feature traditional painted houses.
An amazing variety of landscapes are contained within Western Europe - from the deserts of Spain to the ice caves of Austria. Spain, Portugal, Italy and the south of France all have a strong Mediterranean feel, with lavender fields, vineyards, olive groves and orange orchards all thriving in the warm climate.
