FranceIf you have an itch for travel, we can be pretty sure France is somewhere on your itinerary. The most popular tourist destination in the world, France lures visitors with its legendary landmarks, its world-class museums, its fabled food and wines, its countryside chateaux, its sparkling Cote d’Azur—do we need to go on? Get lost in the Louvre and ride down the River Seine in timeless Paris. Glimpse celebrities in Cannes and soak in the infectious energy of gloriously gritty Marseilles. Listen to the surf laze into the pebbled shores of chic Nice. Ski the Alps, surf in Biarritz, live like royalty in the Loire Valley. And eat a croissant at least once. Read more from the France Travel Guide.. (Read more)
Germany, Austria & SwitzerlandAlemania, Tyskland, Niemcy —if Germany’s many names say anything, it’s that the country is far from homogenous. While you may be thinking lederhosen and beer steins, visitors soon discover Germany to be a patchwork of distinct cultures and traditions. Nowhere is this more evident than Berlin. The reunified city houses modern shopping malls, somber Soviet towers and graffiti-covered old buildings; an exciting and ever-evolving metropolis, Berlin has everything from neoclassic museums to beat-thumping nightlife. High-powered industry and age-old folklore intermingle in Munich, where you can sip the froth of Bavarian culture during Oktoberfest. Taste dry white wines in the romantic Rhine Valley or windsurf along the sandy hills and beaches of Northern Germany. Not the Germany you were envisioning, is it?

Greece & TurkeyGreece - Until recently, tourists would dash into Athens for a quick visit to the Acropolis and the Parthenon before heading for the islands. But, with no disrespect to Pericles, Athens isn’t all about the Acropolis anymore. A major makeover prior to the 2004 Olympics added squares and pedestrian walkways, revamped hotels, even created subway stations that double as museums. Today this ancient city is a vibrant megalopolis with nonstop nightlife, creative cuisine, and sites both ancient and modern. In the thousands of sidewalk cafés, courting teenagers, young professionals, and old men shuffling their worry beads all bask in Athens’s modern-day renaissance. Read more about Greece from the editors at Travel+Leisure.
Turkey - First-time visitors to Turkey (or anywhere, for that matter) often leave home with preconceived notions about what their destination will be like. But Turkey represents many, often contradictory things: It's ancient and modern, Westernized and Oriental, religious and secular, wondrous and ordinary, familiar and exotic. But there is one undeniable common denominator, and that is that Turkey, and the Turkish people, know how to do hospitality. This from a population in which 20% of the people live below the poverty line and yet the native language has no word for "bitter." Read more from the Turkey Travel Guide. (Read more)
ItalyHistory—there, we said it. No other country in the world touts more UNESCO World Heritage sites than Italy. But while museums and the Colosseum may draw you in, it’s the infectiously dynamic Italian spirit that makes you fall in love. (Okay, the food too.) Priests, beggars, chain-smoking fashionistas and zooming Vespas swarm the gleaming black cobblestone streets of ever-epic Rome. The Renaissance lives eternal in the famed museums of Florence, while daring drivers and aperitivo-sipping, gelato-loving residents keep it current. Hauntingly beautiful (and sinking) Venice manages to capture your heart despite the elbowing throngs of tourists. The legendary Tuscan countryside, the spunk of Naples, the lore of Sicily—all of it will make you want to don some designer sunglasses and join in the fun. Read more about Italy. (Read more)
Spain & PortugalOh, Iberia. You lure the sun-starved, the siesta-craved and the bullfight-hungry. And with your history-soaked cities, fabled coastlines and salivating mix of tapas, seafood and great wine, it’s easy to see how you highjack visitors’ hearts. In Spain, you teach us how to enjoy life, from the never-ending nightlife of Madrid to the gastronomical delights of Barcelona, to the orange-scented, festival-packed streets of Seville. You culture us with art museums, educate us with Islamic monuments and Roman ruins, open our minds with surrealist architecture. Read more from the Spain Travel Guide. (Read more)
United Kingdom & IrelandCastles and cosmopolitanism—nowhere else combines the two quite like the United Kingdom. Where else do you find prehistoric sites like Stonehenge, Roman relics like Hadrian’s Wall, medieval monuments like Edinburgh Castle, and some of the world’s most modern and hip cities? Start in England, where you can experience the world in one city (and from the top of a double-decker bus) in melting-pot London. Soak in British gentility in sophisticated Bath, absorb the bookish calm of elite Oxford, or party in beachside clubs in quirky Brighton. Let in the power of Belfast’s political murals in Northern Ireland. Experience the irresistibly defiant Welsh spirit in rapidly transforming Cardiff. Be wowed by fireworks and fun during Edinburgh’s festival season. And stop by a pub along the way. Read more from the United Kingdom Travel Guide. (Read more)
Other European DestinationsThere is much more to Europe than first meets the eye (or gets notice at the first glimpse of the map). In addition to the acclaimed museums and iconic monuments scattered across the Western world’s most influential nations, Europe also boasts vibrant up-and-coming countries that lay, like hidden gems, a bit off the mainstream radar. From the unforgettable, brightly-painted cupolas of Russian churches in St. Petersburg, to the jaw-dropping beauty (and surf!) of beaches in Portugal, to the infinite intrigue of Istanbul’s exotic city streets, there are many sight, sounds, and tastes that will surely make a lasting impression on your family. And, whether you’d like to explore the magical charm of Eastern Europe, or the sun-kissed coast of Europe’s South West, we’re here to help your family find just what you’re looking for. (Read more)
