30 things you should experience in Europe

It’s impossible to ever grow-out of Europe. You may have experienced a flurry of European capitals on a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it, blurry-eyed coach tour in your early 20’s, then perhaps ventured back a few years later for a more adventurous solo trip through The Balkans, and maybe you were invited to your old London flatties’ fancy destination wedding in the foothills of the Dolomites before eventually graduating to week-long city stays, opting for quality over quantity, in chic Airbnbs in favour of budget hostels and overnight buses.

Yet no matter what your reason to venture to Europe is these days, the one thing that keeps travellers coming back for more is the rich, local experiences on offer. Which is why we’ve come up with a pass that’s choc-full of just those. Our new Europe Multi-City Explorer Pass gives you 30 days of unlimited Urban Adventures, across 50 European cities, for one low price.
