  • Destinations in EuropeMore>>

  • Amsterdam


    Whether you go for canals or coffeehouses, the Flower Market or the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam will captivate you.
  • Athens


    Athens is basking in the afterglow of the 2004 Olympic Games that brought new roads, new museums, and a new self-confidence to the country as the Olympics went off without a hitch.
  • Barcelona


    A Gothic and Modernist marvel on the Mediterranean Sea, Barcelona is quirky, cosmopolitan and effortlessly cool.
  • Berlin


    It's history may be dark, but with its field of new skyscrapers, hip clubs, and fashion boutiques, postmillennium Berlin has recast itself as the Continent's capital of cool.
  • Budapest


    Budapest now boasts fourteen budget airlines flying from destinations throughout Europe. With this, the hotel and tourism industries have blossomed.
  • Cannes


    Cannes's glitzy image is embodied by its Film Festival, but a tamer city charms all year round.
  • Copenhagen


    Like Mighty Mouse, Denmark may be small but it packs a powerful punch. Its capital, Copenhagen, seems to be the seat of everything Danish - artistic, financial, and political.
  • Dublin


    Behind all those sturdy, grey columns is the real, modern, Euro-Dublin - an affluent place filled with trendy coffee shops, five-star restaurants, and expensive designer boutiques.
  • Edinburgh


    Earthy yet stylish, and casually cosmopolitan, Edinburgh is as proud of its medieval cobbled alleyways as its famous edgy Fringe Festival.
  • Florence


    Botticelli, Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci all left their mark on Florence, the cradle of the Renaissance and Tuscany's alfresco museum.
  • Frankfurt


    Cosmopolitan and bustling, Goethe's hometown flanking the River Main is the undisputed financial powerhouse of Germany.
  • Geneva


    Geneva is an international city, belonging to the world with its 250 international organizations based here, such as the European headquarters for the UN.
  • Helsinki


    Helsinki is one of the most vibrant and prosperous cities in the world, with one of the highest standards of living and the world's highest literacy rate.
  • Istanbul


    More than Ottoman minarets and beguiling bazaars, Turkey's cultural capital is also fashionable and progressive.

  • Lisbon


    Bathed in pure Atlantic light, crowned by the storybook St. George's Castle and straddling seven hills, Lisbon is one of Europe's most visually striking capitals.
  • London


    London never seems to get tired. It's perhaps the greatest paradox of a city with a history spanning two millennia that it stays forever young and energetic.
  • Madrid


    The old and the new contrast vividly in Madrid, where narrow cobbled lanes and 17th-century chapels border modern boulevards and gleaming skyscrapers.
  • Milan


    An intoxicating mix of the latest fashion trends and world-class art and culture, Milan appeals to fashionistas, art lovers, socialites and opera buffs alike.
  • Oslo


    Fueled by oil money from the "black gold" of the North Sea, Oslo today is permeated with a Nordic joie de vivre in contrast to its staid, dull reputation of yesteryear.
  • Paris


    Paris is unique in that it is a major global city that it manages to synthesize the rhythms of village life with those of a cosmopolitan world capital.
  • Prague


    Conflicts past and present give Prague an eclectic energy. The atmosphere continually reminds us that monarchs and dictators have tried to possess it for 1,000 years.
  • Rome


    It's impossible to see all of the temples and monuments of Rome, so begin with the Pantheon, the Colosseum and St. Peter's Basilica and see how far you get.
  • Venice


    Venice is one of the most spectacular cities ever conceived, but if you want to see it, you'd better hurry: the Adriatic Sea could devastate it within this century!
  • Vienna


    Vienna is a city of music, cafes, waltzes, parks, pastries, and wine, a true cosmopolitan center, where different nationalities have fused their cultural identities to produce the Viennese.
  • Zurich


    Among the most beautiful cities in all of Europe, Zurich is both large enough to offer all amenities to its visitors and small enough for you to discover on your own.
