This is absolutely the year to travel to Europe! There are always compelling reasons to go, and this year marks extraordinary experiences you just shouldn’t miss.
Paris is always a highlight and the Eiffel Tower’s first floor is a sparkling new treasure. Stroll the breathtaking transparent floor as you experience a high-tech exhibit and incredible views of the City of Lights.
Beyond the capital, Bordeaux is being been transformed by La Cité du Vin, a swooping architectural gem featuring a multimedia display about the region’s distinguished wine culture [coming June 2016].
England is celebrating a historic milestone this year: the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death. Not only will you always remember being a part of this experience when you attend a performance at Shakespeare’s Globe in London, but we also recommend traveling to his birthplace of Stratford-Upon-Avon for special commemorative events.
We also suggest venturing to northeastern Spain to San Sebastián. This coastal city recently added the distinction of 2016 European Capital of Culture to its already impressive résumé as a modern dining capital. Public artwork adorns the streets and you’ll witness exclusive exhibitions with works from the Louvre, Reina Sofía and the Prado.
