Many people who travel to Austria imagine they’ll spend their days doing 360 spins in flowery meadows, singing ‘the hills are alive with the sound of music’. But there’s more to Austria than what the movies depict. When in Austria, you’ll find the clichs.
Oh yes, the schnitzels and cakes, the lederhosen, the Mozart merchandise and coffee houses are there, but Austria also has a whole other side that’s concealed from the travel brochures. There’s the church decorated with the skulls of the dead, the museum devoted to witchcraft, the haunted lodge, the insane asylum turned into museum, the liberal Love Parade and the collective pathological penchant for taxidermy.
On a Geckos tour of Austria you’ll get to see palaces, cathedrals and cobbled streets of Vienna, but there’s also enough free time to go find the Undertaker’s Museum…because we know you want to.
If the world was a stage then Europe would make sure she was front and centre. As the backdrop to some of the world's most dramatic and spectacular sights, it is always at the top of any traveller's wishlist.
In spite of all the people who flock here each year, Turkey still has a wonderful sense of being undiscovered. It boasts a raw and magnetic beauty that will leave you breathless at every turn. Where else but Hierapolis can you bathe among Roman remains in thermal waters?
And where other than at Kekova could you swim around the ruins of an ancient sunken city? Greece has a way of getting under your skin and seducing you with its charm. A rich historical background has left its mark on the landscape, with ruins that span six thousand years.
At every turn there is something different, from the incredible scenery of Santorini and Crete to the iconic and unforgettable Acropolis.
There's something for everyone, you just have to let yourself be open to Greece and it will soon show you the way.View all Europe trips
