Welcome to Europe, birthplace of Western civilization—the Parthenon, the Colosseum, our early thoughts and poets… now more mature through medieval castles left as symbols of old lives and wars, through sublime cathedrals, through cobbled streets where books were traded and thoughts exchanged sometimes over tea or coffee, and sometimes, unfortunately, over gunfire.
Beautiful shore-side towns both small and large dot the coasts with colored houses, a gondola floats silently with passengers along a softly lit canal at dusk, a church bell chimes eleven in a busy central square with crowds pouring into a tasteful classic metro stop below… Europe’s diverse moments and sensations are perhaps unparalleled.
And as Europe once sent its ships abroad to trade and to explore, it now awaits your own ship’s arrival. It waits to show you all that has happened here, and all that continues to happen, whether at the calm mountain shop of a Swiss chocolatier or the dazzling midnight light show of a nightclub in Moscow’s downtown.
