Europe/UK Tourist Places

Vatican City:

The Vatican City is a tiny fragment when compared with the extensive Papal States of central Italy, which were conquered by the forces of Italian unification in the mid-19th century. The popes then became "prisoners in the Vatican", unwilling to leave the confines of the Apostolic Palace until 1929, when Italy's Fascist government negotiated the Lateran Treaty that created the current mini-state.

The current pope is Francis, the first Latin American to be elected to the post. He succeeded Pope Benedict XVI, who reigned from 2005 until 2013, when he announced his resignation on grounds of old age. Pope Benedict had continued the conservative clerical policies of his predecessor, John Paul II. Pope John Paul's 26-year reign saw tremendous upheaval in Eastern Europe, including his homeland Poland. He preached dialogue and reconciliation between former political opponents and religions. During a visit to Israel - the first by a Pope - John Paul expressed sorrow for the history of anti-Semitism in the Catholic Church. He also sought to heal rifts with other Christian churches. Some of these moves were successful, others less so.

 

Italy

Italy is unique: Medieval and Renaissance art, sunlight on honey-coloured stone, irresistible food, classical ruins and exclusive boutiques. Our Italy tours encompass it all. Take an escorted tour to Italy’s great cities: Rome, with its iconic Coliseum and St Peter’s Basilica; Florence with its sublime galleries, and magical Venice, the city on water.

Our escorted tours of Italy also include the magnificent Italian Lakes - Garda, Como and Maggiore - with their dramatic scenery, picturesque towns and old-world charm. You can also explore the beautiful hilltop towns of Tuscany with our tours of Italy, and the jewels of the spectacular Amalfi coast: Sorrento, Positano and Capri.

Italy conjures up sunny beaches, picturesque lakes, ancient history and Renaissance art: it is a country of extremes that has so much to offer holidaymakers with the most diverse interests. Whether you want to toss a coin into Rome's Trevi fountain or relax on the picturesque Amalfi coast, Italy is bound to delight you. From the Colosseum in Rome to the Leaning Tower of Pisa or the remains of the Roman city of Pompeii, Italy is a haven for those who love history. Venice stages its spectacular carnival in February, and this romantic city now has a new bridge over the Grand Canal. Aficionados of Renaissance art will not want to miss a visit to the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. Are you more the outdoor type? If so, you can ski in the Alps or go hiking in the Dolomites.

  

France

The sheer physical diversity of France would be hard to exhaust in a lifetime of visits. Places to visit in France range from the fretted coasts of Brittany and the limestone hills of Provence to the canyons of the Pyrenees and the half-moon bays of Corsica, and from the lushly wooded valleys of the Dordogne and the gentle meadows of the Loire valley to the glaciated peaks of the Alps. Each region looks and feels different, has its own style of architecture, its own characteristic food and often its own dialect. Though the French word pays is the term for a whole country, people frequently refer to their own region as mon pays – my country – and this strong sense of regional identity has persisted despite centuries of centralizing governments, from Louis XIV to de Gaulle.

Industrialization came relatively late to France, and for all the millions of French people that live in cities, the idea persists that theirs is a rural country. The importance of the land reverberates throughout French culture, manifesting itself in areas as diverse as regional pride in local cuisine and the state’s fierce defence of Europe’s agricultural subsidies. Perhaps the most striking feature of the French countryside is the sense of space. There are huge tracts of woodland and undeveloped land without a house in sight, and, away from the main urban centres, hundreds of towns and villages have changed only slowly and organically over the years, their old houses and streets intact, as much a part of the natural landscape as the rivers, hills and fields.

Despite this image of pastoral tranquillity, France’s history is notable for its extraordinary vigour. For more than a thousand years the country has been in the vanguard of European development, and the accumulation of wealth and experience is evident everywhere in the astonishing variety of places to visit, from the Dordogne’s prehistoric cave paintings and the Roman monuments of the south, to the Gothic cathedrals of the north, the châteaux of the Loire, and the cutting-edge architecture of the grands projets in Paris. This legacy of history and culture – le patrimoine – is so widely dispersed across the land that even the briefest of stays will leave you with a powerful sense of France’s past.
