To say that the Czechs like beer is an understatement. Generally cheaper than bottled water and available to buy at any time, you're going to want to mentally (and physically) prepare your liver for your Prague adventure. Not a beer fan? No worries; explore the city's medieval warrens, tuck into a tasty strudel and gaze at the gothic spires of Prague Castle.

Amsterdam and the Netherlands

Quirky and colourful, 'the Dam' has red-light districts, cannabis cafes, bikes galore and more canals than Venice. Chuck in to the mix that it's home to Heineken, more than 1,280 bridges and thousands of museums that document everything, from sex to Anne Frank; it's pretty perfect for culture (and not so cultural) vultures.

When is the best time of year to travel to Europe?

Europe's weather can vary from country to country depending on the season. Between the months of November and March, parts of north and central Europe can be very cold, whilst the Mediterranean countries remain mild.

The months around Christmas are a magical time to visit Central and Eastern Europe, with traditional Christmas markets and New Years Eve celebrations taking over.

Visit Turkey, Croatia, Greece, Italy and Spain in the spring summer months to make the most of the beautiful beaches and perfect weather... altough you're likely to find warm weather and sunshine in most parts of the continent between May and September.

Prices tend to be highest in Europe at Christmas, Easter and during the summer vacation. Travel during off peak times to save yourself money on accommodation and trips.

Do I need a visa to travel Europe?

As a U.S. resident, you'll be granted a tourist visa upon arrival in all European countries, so there is no need to apply for one in advance. In most countries, these visas can last you up to 90 days within any 180 day period, but in the United Kingdom, you can stay for up to six months.
