So just make sure you add Europe to your destination if you think you're likely to pop to a few to extra countires to be sure you're covered.

GAZE AT GAUDI'S MASTERPIECES: If you're intrigued by the unusual, you need to visit the architectural masterpieces of Antoni Gaudí. A famous figure of world architecture and Catalan culture, Gaudi spent over 40 years designing the Temple of the Sagrada Familia. La Pedrera is one of Gaudí’s main residential buildings and one of the most imaginative houses in the history of architecture. Other famous works include Casa Batlló (Batlló house) and the Casa Milà (Milá house), and the expansive Güell Park (which today is open to the public).
TIME TRAVEL IN ATHENS: The Acropolis is one time travel experience not to miss. The views atop of this "high city" are amazing and getting up close with Parthenon (temple dedicated to the goddess Athena) is a moment you will never forget.
DRIVE THE AMALFI COAST: With narrow roads clinging to a twisting shoreline atop of dramatic mountain cliffs, driving the Amalfi Coast is not for the faint hearted. Backdropped against the sunlit emerald-blue sea sparkling below, the Amalfi Coast is arguably Italy’s most scenic stretch of coastline. Why don't you be the judge?!
SET SAIL OR ISLAND HOP THE MEDITERRANEAN: It is for good reason that Croatia, Italy, Cyprus and the Greek Islands are some of Europes most loved summer holiday destinations. Wake up to warm mediterranean sunshine surrounded with sparkling turquoise waters, authentic cuisine and then end the day with spectacular sunsets. Don't mind if I do!
HAVE SOME FESTIVAL FUN: Whether its music, sports, folk or art that you're in to, Europe has some of the most magnificent events and festivals in the world. If you time your trip right, you could set yourself up to wooed by a once in a lifetime experience. There is the fun and laughter that comes from hurling tomatos at each other at La Tomatina in Spain; the chance to sink liquid gold in dirndl for the ladies and lederhosen for the men at the insanely huge Oktoberfest in Munich; dance your way around Lake Zurich at the most colourful technoparades at the Street Parade in Zurich; if music is your dig, the Sziget festival is probably the biggest music and culture festival in Europe; marvel and be mesmorised by the masked magic of the Carnival of Venice; for garden enthusiasts there is the RHS Chelsea Flower Show; San Fermines festival is a week-long festival hosted in Pamplona, Spain which includes running of the bulls; and the Copenhagen Jazz Festival is a must on Denmark’s music calendar... just to name a few.
