If you're looking to explore the most iconic parts of Europe - this is it. 

From watching the Eiffel Tower sparkle at night to cruising around the canals of Amsterdam... this is the European adventure you've been waiting for. Grab a macaron or croissant while walking down the Avenue des Champs-Élysées to the Arc de Triomphe, explore the Market Square of Bruges, Belgium lined with fairytale buildings (picture real-life gingerbread houses), and finally see why Amsterdam is famous for having more bikes than people, floating houses, and waffles served 24/7. The architecture is out of a storybook, the food is out of this world, the history is fascinating, and the possible adventures are endless.
