More about Hungary

The landlocked country of Hungary shares its borders with Austria, Croatia, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine. The capital of Budapest is a great city to explore, with its medieval Castle Hill, Fisherman's Bastion and impressive Parliament Building. It's split by the Danube River and many European river cruises either start of end in Budapest. And if you're wondering, Hungarian goulash really is from Hungary. The tasty soup made from beef and vegetables and flavoured with paprika is known locally as Gulyásleves (gulyás is herdsman and leves is soup in Hungarian); because it originates from a dish cooked by the cattlemen of the Great Hungarian Plain.

More about Italy

What's not to love about Italy! From its ancient monuments and treasure-laden museums, to iconic cities, stunning coastal villages and magnificent mountain ranges. And of course the cuisine! You could literally eat your way from Rome to Florence and Venice. Gelato ice cream was invented in Italy and there are over 200 shapes for Italian pasta. Pizza was first created in Napoli in 1860 and yes, calzone is simply folded up pizza!
