Must-sees in Europe

*
  • Berlin
  • Rich in culture and history, Berlin overflows with great architecture, a supercool art scene and acres of history. Boasting all that, it's also still one of the cheapest capitals in Europe!
*
  • Paris
  • The city of love, lights and the most scrumptious croissants, Paris is one of the most famous cities in the world. Whether you soar the skies at the top of the Eiffel Tower, or roam the galleries at the Louvre Museum, there is something for everyone to explore and enjoy.
*
  • Santorini
  • The sparkling waters of the Aegean Sea welcome everyone to one of the most exquisite Greek islands. Magnificent views of traditional white-washed, blue-domed buildings, jagged cliff edges and vineyards make Santorini a Mediterranean must.
