It’s difficult to know where to start when it comes to exploring Europe. Do you head for one of the continent’s cultural capitals – London, Paris or Rome – each steeped in history and flush with museums and galleries, or do you avoid the cities altogether and seek out Europe’s stunning landscapes? Do you aim for a specific cultural experience – a naked lakeside sauna near Stockholm, perhaps, or a game of footie at Milan’s San Siro stadium – or do you just turn up without a plan and see where the continent takes you? Whatever your vibe, we guarantee you’ll find the very best things to do in Europe right here.
