Cheap flights to Europe

What can I do in Europe?

See the most iconic sites of Western Europe, such as the Eiffel Tower in Paris, London’s Big Ben, Rome’s Colosseum, Athens’ Acropolis, or Berlin’s Brandenberg Gate. Turn your eye to Eastern Europe, and tour the palaces of St. Petersburg, the castles of Prague, and the squares of Krakow. Sail down the Danube, and spend time in Budapest, Vienna, Belgrade, or Bratislava.

Beyond the cities, you will find the glittering coastline of the Mediterranean or the Algarve, where you can seek the sun, sand, and sea of the French and Italian Riviera, or upon the islands of Greece and Italy. With so much to see in this part of the world, read our Essential Europe itinerary for first time travellers for help on how to plan your trip.
