If it’s gastronomy you’re drooling over, opt for one of our gourmet breaks or wine holidays: we love Australasia, South Africa and South America for wine tasting holidays and vineyard tours.

Art lovers will be mesmerised by the galleries peppered throughout Europe, from the Renaissance collections in Florence to exciting modern art in Istanbul. Otherwise treat your senses to the vibrant chaos and colours of the souks in Oman and Morocco, or immerse yourself in the spirituality of Sri Lanka, with its many temples and festivals for which it is so famous.
