Europe is a must for any travel bucket list, and when better to visit than during the balmier summer months. Think music festivals, street parties, island hopping, and beach sunsets with cocktail in hand... sounds good right? Get inspired by a few of our ideas below and see why we just love summer in Europe!

Love Summer in Europe

Europe really comes alive during the summer months. Capitals such as Paris welcome a hive of street life with alfresco dining becoming all the rage. Along the Mediterranean the beaches and coves are at their very best, and you'll be able to enjoy endless local summer events such as Spain's never ending calendar of fiestas. The Greek Islands, Turkey and Croatia are simply gorgeous this time of year, with sailing trips an idyllic way to spend a week or so. Plus there are loads of awesome European music festivals (think Ultra, Hideout and EXIT to name a few) where you can throw some serious shapes as world-class DJs take to the decks.
