Historic cities throughout the region feature diverse, cosmopolitan offerings. London presents a combination of traditional and modern attractions for visitors. Catch a show in the West End or tour Shakespeare's Globe Theater. Visits to Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace and Trafalgar Square are also a must.

The epic past of Rome is revealed through architectural testaments such as the Roman Forum, Pantheon and Palatine Hill. Relive the glories of the gladiators at the Colosseum and Circus Maximus, then take in Vatican City -- home to St. Peter's Basilica and the Sistine chapel.

No stop in Paris would be complete without a tour of some of its famous sights, like the Arc de Triomphe, which honors those who fought for France, and the beautiful Alexandre III bridge. Drive along the Champs-Élysées, admire Notre Dame Cathedral, take in the impressive Place de la Concorde and go shopping at the famous Galleries Lafayette. And finally, ascend to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower for the best view of Paris.

The majestic natural beauty and deep history of the British Isles is legendary. In southern England, Stonehenge is an ancient stone structure reputed to be at least 4,000 years old. It rests at the center of numerous Neolithic and Bronze Ages monuments in England, including hundreds of burial mounds. The Ring of Kerry, with its views of mountains and sea around the Iveragh Peninsula, is a magical Celtic trail that offers some of the most striking scenery in Ireland. There are also numerous picturesque towns and attractions to visit, including Muckross House, the Gap of Dunloe, Ross Castle, Lough Leane and the Ladies View.

A river cruise is one of the most breathtaking ways to take in the sights of Europe, offering travelers a relaxing, intimate way to experience countries and cultures. On a Danube sailing, you'll discover Europe's vineyard-lined valleys and beautifully preserved medieval towns in countries such as Germany, Austria, Hungary and Romania. Rhine River cruises are perhaps the most popular. Some sail strictly on the Rhine, while others are combined with other waterways, which allow you to experience some of Europe's most interesting ports, like Passau, Vienna, Budapest and Amsterdam.

A visit to France might include a stop in the magnificent vineyards of the Burgundy region. Beaujolais is the wine of the region, and wine connoisseurs will know that the grapes must be hand-picked. Beaune, the unofficial capital of the Côte d'Or area, produces some of Burgundy's finest vintages. Mâcon on the Saône River plays an important role in the wine trade as well. Visit the important wine trading port of Chalon-sur-Saône, where the 17th century Church of St. Pierre and the crypt of St. Benigne are not to be missed.

Europe and the British Isles are teeming with historic sites and majestic landscapes. And Europe tours will help you see them all.
