HOLIDAYS IN EUROPE

Nowhere else in the world do you find so much diversity in such a small area. A short trip from the UK and you can be in one of 44 different countries - some modern and familiar, some unusual and exotic - comprising many different landscapes, climates, languages, cultures, traditions and cuisines. For destinations that combine ease of travel with great weather, food and activities, we recommend Croatia, Italy, Cyprus, Greece, Portugal & Madeira, Spain & her islands and Turkey.

GET IN TOUCH

With so much on offer just over the channel it’s tempting to hold a pin above a map of Europe, close your eyes and pick at random. To get the most from your holiday, however, it’s much better to first think about the type of trip you want to do. For example, if it’s history and culture you want then you can’t go wrong with Italy or Greece; if you’re mad for water sports, Croatia is a fantastic choice with a coast that’s just made for sailing and sea kayaking.

And of course you need not limit yourself to summer - winter opens up a world of accessible ski holidays in the renowned Alpine resorts as well as lesser-known locations in both Western and Eastern European countries. You may even yearn for a fairytale Christmas escape, in which case the frost-tipped forests, frozen lakes and seasonal associations of Lapland will be for you.

Each country within the continent is easily reached by air, road and rail and your journey can easily become an integral part of your experience. Rail travel in Europe is highly enjoyable - try the scenic Glacier Express in Switzerland or take the famous Orient Express to Venice. There are also a great range of river and sea cruises taking in classic European scenery and attractions, and driving is easy and pleasurable in most countries.

Whatever you decide, the best course of action is to define what you want from your Europe holiday and pop into Flitch Travel for a chat - we have a wealth of experience and will tailor your holiday package to meet your exact needs.

ITALY HOLIDAYS

With so much on offer, choose an Italian multi-centre holiday. Spend a few days exploring the hidden secrets of Florence; rent a car and head to the Tuscany Coast where rolling hills meet the Mediterranean Sea; journey by train from the vibrant city of Rome to the beautiful coastal vistas and tantalising cuisine afforded in Sorrento. There is a huge variety of experiences beckoning including cooking classes, opera, historical landmarks and so much more!

GREECE HOLIDAYS

Home of Zeus, Aphrodite, Athena, Poseidon and many other mythological characters, Greece is a truly magnificent holiday destination. Holidays to Greece are the perfect way to see fantastic ancient architecture, taste sumptuous Mediterranean cuisine and experience vibrant, colourful culture. Must do: go remote and visit one of the Aegean islands. Flitch Travel are proud to offer a unique collection of hotels within this cluster of gems complete with a choice of car or boat hire!

PORTUGAL HOLIDAYS

Vineyard-filled rolling hills, dramatic cliffs, sandy beaches, year-round sunshine and stunning hotels - it’s no wonder Portugal is such a popular luxury holiday destination.

The island of Madeira is famous for its wine, hiking trails and beautiful scenery. Must do: hire a car to get off the beaten track and discover your own coves, beaches and restaurants. In Madeira, take a cable car up to the top of the mountain then ride back down in a toboggan - not for the faint hearted!
