Europe’s landscape is ever-evolving, so you can return once a year and always discover new aspects of its history and culture. From the unspoilt landscape of Iceland down to the Bosphorus Bridge linking Turkey to Asia, you could spend a lifetime exploring the wonders of Europe. The only thing harder than whittling them down to a list of the best? Picking exactly which of these top European destinations to visit first.
1. Northern Portugal, for exceptional wining and dining
No Euro bucket list is complete without an Atlantic coast destination, so why not explore northern Portugal? White-sand beaches and turquoise water rival that of the seas to the south, granting you beachside bliss and amazing sunsets. Speaking of reds, whites and hues, it only takes one taste of the wine in this country to uncork a whole new meaning of the word “sublime”. See, feel and taste it all as you explore Porto, Lisbon, vineyards and shorelines during this nine-day TRIPS by Culture Trip Portugal adventure.

2. Sicily, for volcano viewing

Leave the mainstream cities for another journey and move Sicily to the top of your Italy bucket list. Few European destinations will take you this deep into the Med, so pack the sunscreen and a stylish swimsuit. The Sicilian sun will shower you endlessly; thank goodness there’s no shortage of gelato or limoncello. You can even turn up the heat with a 4×4 jaunt across the volcanic slopes of Mount Etna during this ten-day TRIPS by Culture Trip excursion around Sicily.

4. Turkey, to get lost in bazaars and caves

If you want to travel to Europe and Asia on one trip, look no further than Istanbul. Sitting at a continental crossroads, it offers a unique and enthralling lens on cultural diversity. Enter the vibrant, labyrinthine Grand Bazaar and you may never be seen again. Assuming you do find the exit though, you should also explore centuries of tradition in Ankara, wander through the caves of Cappadocia, and relax on the Turkish Riviera. Take time to define your own Turkish delight during this twelve-day TRIPS by Culture Trip tour of Turkey from Istanbul to Antalya.

Beaches, volcanoes and hot springs dot the terrain, inspiring you to wear your soles out seeing it all. Escape to Iceland’s frozen wilderness with this scenic TRIPS by Culture Trip five-day tour.
