World Heritage Journeys in the European Union
Through these journeys, you will discover the EU in a new light, and learn how these incredible World Heritage sites intertwine to tell fascinating stories of Europe's heritage and history.
There are over 350 World Heritage sites in the European Union, and we've handpicked 34 for you to explore in-depth. By working with the managers of these sites, the local communities, businesses and stakeholders, we are giving you special access to some of the hidden gems and local secrets of these amazing destinations.
But it's much more than that. Our goal is to change how people travel. Staying longer in destinations, experiencing the local culture, and gaining a deeper knowledge and appreciation of World Heritage values.
With this local knowledge, we encourage you to travel differently, and travel deeper.
Use this platform to inspire and plan your trips. Sign up and save the places and experiences you discover to your personal itinerary, and design your own unforgettable World Heritage Journey in the European Union.
