Get pleasantly lost in Venice, exploring the tangle of canals and alleyways that make up this beautiful city.
Cycle along one of the oldest wine routes in Italy – the South Tyrolean Wine Road – famed for its stunning scenery as much as its wine. Take in serene vistas of Italian villas and vineyards as you pedal from wine village to wine village, sampling delicious local drops as you go.

Enjoy a scenic walk along the banks of the River Danube in Budapest. Threaded with bridges and hemmed in by castles and historic city buildings, Europe’s second longest river is also one of its most beautiful.
Hike in the picturesque Tatra Mountains and traverse the steep slopes via funicular, gondola and train.
