Cor por ate R esponsibilit y at K uoni Travel transcends borders and brings us together, creating a melting pot of vibrant countries and cultures. Over 900 million of us travel every year, and here at Kuoni we’re committed to looking after the diverse peoples and eco-systems of our many incredible destinations. Here are some of the projects we support.

PRESERVING our destinations Choose a sustainable hotel ... In order to promote sustainability at our destinations, Kuoni is working closely with the Travelife Sustainability System. Hotels that take on environmental and social responsibility are awarded the Travelife Gold, Silver or Bronze Awards. This means that resources such as energy and water are used carefully, waste is minimised and goods are purchased from local producers. Equally important is the fair treatment of employees and an intensive dialogue with the local community. Through Travelife, we offer you the opportunity to select sustainable hotels at your chosen destination. As you leaf through this catalogue, look for the Travelife logo:

child protection Travel respectfully ... Kuoni is committed to preserving the natural environment and biodiversity of tourist destinations, such as supporting projects to protect coral reefs in Egypt and the Maldives. By acting respectfully towards the people and the nature at your destination, you too can contribute to the long term preservation of your holiday paradise. More information visit www.kuoni-group.com/ corporate+responsibility.

Don’t turn a blind eye… More than two million children and adolescents are affected by child sex tourism. Kuoni has signed the international Child Protection Code (www.thecode.org) and is committed to combating this crime. Look and see what is going on… don’t turn a blind eye. If something looks suspicious and points to child sexual exploitation, report it to the hotel management, your travel agent, your embassy, the local police or the police in your home country.

clim ate protection Compensate the emissions from your flight… Climate change is among the most urgent challenges of our time, so projects that help prevent global warming are more important than ever. The Kuoni composting project in Bali ensures greenhouse gas emissions are avoided and waste is reduced, as well as creating jobs and value compost agriculture. Even with a small fee, you too can support this innovative project and compensate the CO2 emissions of your flight. http://kuoni.myclimate.org/e

welcome to ananea – the gr een way to tr avel Book an unforgettable tour and learn how people in other countries live and work. Relax in one of our eco-friendly hotels – many are luxurious retreats that meet the highest standards of sustainable tourism – or take an active part and volunteer on a sustainable project, such a cheetah conservation in Namibia or teaching English at a local school in Thailand.

Discover Europe...

History, Culture, shopping, nightlife, great beaches, fabulous food – Barcelona has it all.

The birthplace of civilisation and democracy and the progenitor of holidays and tourism as we know it, Europe will always offer travellers the most incredible diversity of holiday experiences.

In the east (or perhaps more accurately, in ‘The East’), Turkey, with its great capital Istanbul, literally bridges continents, its magical coastline of bays and inlets hinting at a shared ancestry with the nearby Greek islands that speckle the historic waters of the Aegean and Ionian Seas, such as Santorini with its spectacular caldera, or Crete with its ancient archaeology. On the island of Cyprus you can visit the legendary birthplace of Aphrodite ‘the goddess of love’, whereas the easy charms of Malta intriguingly conflict with martial architecture crafted through centuries of invasion. In Italy, experience the sedate side of life in Sardinia, ancient tourist trails in Rome, Venice or Florence, or the sophistication of glamorous Capri, sparkling in the ominous shadows of Vesuvius. Experience golf and sophistication and discover hidden charms away from the masses on the islands of the Balearics, or on the Spanish mainland explore the quixotic avenues of ‘Las Ramblas’ in Barcelona, and the famous beachfront of Marbella. Portugal’s Algarve is too often all about the golf, and with championship courses galore it is no surprise, but a covetous coastline of idyllic coves and beaches allude to so much more. Scenic Madeira is rugged but sensuous, a lush mid-Atlantic speck and the launch-port for great empires of the past, as were the islands of the Canaries with their breathtaking geography alluding to a spectacular birth of fire and violence. Beauty and tranquillity, romance and nostalgia, cuisine and culture; each of these sun-soaked destinations delivers its own magical combination for you to discover.

Our Personal Travel Experts Suggest: looking for luxury?

for all the family

Scattered amongst Europe’s sunshine destinations are some of the world’s most exclusive resorts. These palatial hotels are destinations in themselves, often seducing travellers with spectacular beaches, indulgent spas and epicurean dining of Michelin star standard. Perhaps consider the elegance and sophistication of Reid’s Palace, an Orient Express hotel on the charming mid-Atlantic isle of Madeira, or Tenerife’s ABAMA Golf & Spa Resort, with its striking pink citadel vivid amongst luxuriant green fairways. For the ultimate luxury experience, choose Monte Carlo and the iconic Hotel de Paris which is the very epitome of European grand chic. Look for the ‘LUXURY’ label throughout this brochure.

We have specially selected some of Europe’s finest hotels for families, and throughout this brochure you will find the ‘FAMILY’ label alongside our child friendly favourites. At these superb properties, you’ll find ample activities and entertainment for children and more than enough for parents as well. Active families might like to experience the endless sport and leisure facilities of Club La Manga on Spain’s Costa Calida, or perhaps choose one of the Sani resorts in Halkidiki. There’s the fun and luxury of the InterContinental Aphrodite Hills, with its excellent clubs and swimming pools for children and fabulous golf and spa for Mums and Dads.

city & culture

relaxation & romance

Our Europe brochure is about far more than just beach holidays! Why not whiz off on an exciting city break, or perhaps combine your beach break with some culture in one of Europe’s iconic city destinations. Try Barcelona for its fabulously extravagant Gaudi architecture and buzzing city beaches, or absorb the romance of Venice, the culture of Florence and the historic sights of Rome. In Athens, dine in the lee of the Acropolis, or perhaps combine East and West in bustling Istanbul.

Want to escape the crowds, relax and recharge, or perhaps you are looking to reconnect with a loved one or searching for that special honeymoon location? Look out for our ‘HONEYMOON’ or ‘SPA’ labels for our favourite romantic hideaways and sublime spa hotels. Perhaps unwind amidst the dramatic beauty of the Greek island of Santorini at stylish Mystique, an exclusive retreat with just 22 beautiful suites and villas basking in magnificent views of the caldera. Or perhaps slumber into the cosseting embrace of the picturesque Provençal countryside at the sublime Four Seasons Resort Provence At Terre Blanche.

Barcelona Rich in history and culture; full of character and contrasts, Barcelona has cemented itself as one of Europe’s top cities and it isn’t difficult to understand why. Dramatic Gothic buildings stand alongside spectacularly surreal modern structures and its cosmopolitan atmosphere is as equally present in the heart of Las Ramblas as it is in a vibrant beachside café.

A city transformed by the regeneration centred around the 1992 Olympic Games, Barcelona is fantastically easy to explore on foot and, with a location on Spain’s north-eastern Mediterranean coast, the city is blessed with beautiful beaches less than half an hour from its centre.

cit y guide get t ing a round Spain’s second largest city isn’t difficult to navigate. Barcelona International Airport (El Prat) is only eight miles from the city centre. Once in the city, the hopon/off Bus Turistic stops at all the major attractions, and the metro is a useful and reliable alternative. Bicycles are also available for hire and walking is recommended as far as possible.

Spanish Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí’s masterpieces. Gràcia lies to the north of the centre and this is where you will find Gaudí’s famous Park Güell. Barcelona also enjoys a vibrant beach scene less than half an hour from the city centre. Soak up the sun at Platja de la Barceloneta (closest to the centre), Mar Bella (particularly good for watersports), Nova Icaria and Bogatell.

w Her e TO go

w h at TO dO

Ciutat Vella (Catalan for ‘old city’) is the centre of the city and host to many of Barcelona’s most impressive monuments. Bursting with architectural attractions, this is where you will find Gothic churches and houses, Romanesque churches, beautiful bustling squares, pretty fountains, narrow streets and fascinating museums. The famous tree-lined boulevard of La Rambla runs through Ciutat Vella. In fact, a series of streets (and therefore also known as Las Ramblas), these predominantly pedestrianised boulevards are lined with cafés, restaurants, street performers and open-air markets. Each individually themed, one rambla can be devoted solely to flower stalls; whilst another showcases the work of craftsmen.

The sightseeing here is some of the best in the world and a photographer’s dream.

Eixample (‘the extension’), built largely in the 19th Century, is Barcelona’s modernist quarter. Considered an excellent example of modern urban planning, its grid-pattern streets and squares are home to a large number of the

Stroll along bustling La Rambla. Tantalise your tastebuds at La Boqueria market, then stop at one of the cafés for people-watching with a jug of chilled sangria. Art enthusiasts are spoilt for choice, with the Museu Picasso and Fundació Joan Miró – not to mention the works of Gaudí, scattered around the city like a fantastical treasure hunt. The magical UNESCO World Heritage Site of Park Güell hosts some of his finest designs, with Hansel and Gretel-inspired gatehouses, a mosaic lizard sculpture and wonderful views of the city and beyond. A visit to Barcelona wouldn’t be complete without admiring the extraordinary architecture of Gaudí’s La Sagrada Famílía. This iconic and imposing church has evoked both delight and horror –

but always wonder – with its exquisite mosaic work, dreaming spires and stone tapestry symbolising the life of Christ. As yet unfinished, construction is expected to continue for at least another 30 years. Equally breathtaking but from an era far removed from Gaudí’s time, the Gothic Cathedral of Santa Eulàli dates back to 1298 and is the seat of the Archbishop of Barcelona. Sports fans can visit Barcelona FC’s renowned stadium, Camp Nou, and the Estadi Olimpic – host to the 1992 summer Olympics. And for relaxation, spend some time on the beach at Platja de la Barceloneta – a long sandy stretch just 20 minutes’ walk from the city centre with some of the city’s best seafood restaurants and, in summer, a lively beach bar scene.

EATING OUT Tapas is unsurprisingly popular, though it did not originate from this region. Barceloneta offers some of the best tapas in the city and is a favourite with locals. ‘Pinxto’ – the Basque version of tapas: platters of bite-sized morsels served on top of bread – is also popular. Be sure to sample authentic Catalan cuisine, largely consisting of seafood paella, soups, salads, snails and different breads. Dining options are vast and varied around La Rambla, but expect to pay higher prices than in other areas of the city. Many restaurants offer a simple and good-value menú del dia (‘menu of the day’). People here eat late and it is worth noting that many restaurants are closed from 4pm-8pm.

Athens Revered as the cradle of Western Civilisation and the birthplace of democracy, Athens is a fascinating city of contrasts with its roots firmly placed in history; yet evolving as a cosmopolitan capital for today. Named after the goddess Athena and home to classic philosophers including the likes of Socrates and Plato, this captivating city is fiercely proud of its heritage and is committed to preserving its many cultural treasures. Athens seduces visitors with its intriguing collision of ancient and modern - from the breathtaking grandeur of the Parthenon and the delightful winding alleys of the Plaka below, to the exclusive boutiques of Kolonaki and the hedonistic nightclubs of Glyfada.

cit y guide get t ing a round The city is fairly compact and it is easy to navigate the main sights by foot. Since the 2004 Olympics, the metro is efficient, easy to navigate and the quickest way to explore the city. Hop on a bus for a cheap way to get around but allow extra time during rush hour. If you opt for a taxi then make sure that the metre is running, or you may find yourself paying a lot more than expected!

w Her e TO go The ravaged beauty of the Parthenon is truly a sight to behold. This iconic temple boasts elegant columns and friezes and crowns the Acropolis which overlooks the ancient city. Over the last 2,500 years it has survived earthquakes, fires, battles and looting. The excellent Acropolis Museum at the foot of the hill houses a number of important treasures and brings the temple’s history to life.

the hourly Changing of the Guard – and see the soldiers’, or evzones’, unique uniform of kilted skirts, tasselled hats and pom-pom shoes. Formerly the King’s private garden, the National Gardens that flank the Parliament Building are a welcome escape from the city’s oppressive heat, traffic jams and crowds. Wander the narrow pathways to discover ancient remains, a small botanical museum, duck ponds and a small zoo. Rub shoulders with Athens’ elite in the upmarket district of Kolonaki and discover exclusive boutiques and fine restaurants.

w h at TO dO Discover some of Athens’ archaeological treasures with a stroll along the Grand Promenade - Europe’s longest pedestrian promenade. This classic route links a host of ancient archaeological sites, monuments and sacred temples including the Acropolis and Herodes Atticus amphitheatre.

In the shadow of the Acropolis lies the city’s oldest neighbourhood. The Plaka’s labyrinthine streets are bursting with stalls and traders hawking their wares – from souvenirs, antiques and arts and crafts to clothing, paintings and hand-painted idols.

Greece’s largest museum, the superb National Archaeological Museum, houses more than 20,000 exhibits including prehistoric antiquities, ancient sculptures and vases, bronze artefacts and a rare Egyptian collection.

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the Hellenic Parliament Building in Syntagma Square attracts crowds of tourists eager to witness the pageantry and ceremony of

Head to Kolonaki and ascend Lycabettus Hill, the city’s highest point, for panoramic views over Athens and the Acropolis, the Temple of Zeus and Kalimarmaro Stadium.

EATING OUT

Reach the summit by following zig-zagging steps to the top (challenging on a sunny day) or take the funicular that runs every half an hour from Ploutarchou Street.

Athens has a thriving café culture and vibrant restaurant scene, with countless charming tavernas. In true European style, Athenians tend to eat later in the evening and can often be found chatting over a strong coffee in the early hours. From grilled swordfish, souvlaki and calamari to tzatziki and stuffed vine leaves, Greek cuisine offers a wide selection of fresh and tasty dishes that are reasonably priced. In order to sample many of these culinary delights choose a number of small dishes or mezes that can be shared. The ubiquitous fresh salads drizzled with olive oil and warm pitta bread accompanied by tasty dips are the perfect way to whet your palate before tucking into the delicious local speciality fresh seafood. Dining alfresco with the illuminated Acropolis before you is an unforgettable experience.

Immerse yourself in ancient tradition and enjoy a concert or classical Greek tragedy under the stars at Herodes Atticus Theatre – an ancient open-air Roman theatre with superb acoustics. Gazi was formerly the site of the city’s old gasworks and is now spilling over with bars, restaurants, cafés and art exhibitions, whilst the picturesque harbour of Mikrolimano in Piraeus boasts fine fish restaurants and lively bars. For glamorous nightlife it is hard to beat Glyfada, a coastal suburb that is home to myriad millionaires and celebrities and boasts chic night clubs by the beach. Glyfada is the place to see and be seen.

Inhabited since Neolithic times, birthplace of Aphrodite and home to lively bar-filled sands and deserted expanses of beaches, the wildflower island of Cyprus is a dreamy escape of natural beauty, contemporary boltholes and the perfect smattering of Byzantine architecture.

Serene enough for the loggerhead turtles to come and lay their eggs, Pissouri will answer your holiday prayers with more than a dash of authentic Cypriot allure, a long stretch of beach plus sailing, diving and windsurfing. More frenetic Protaras is just a short drive from vibrant Ayia Napa and is home to one of the island’s best beaches in Fig Tree Bay.

Drench yourself in mythology and history, from the Hellonistic mosaics to the Tombs of the Kings, before sunbathing on sandy Municipal Beach in ancient Paphos. Then follow the heady scents, sights and sounds towards Limassol’s ‘Little Miami,’ with its lively port and wide beaches, home to Limassol Castle where Richard the Lionheart married his Princess. Head to Ladies Mile Beach for family-friendly swimming and windsurfing.

Back to an emphatically slower pace of life on the unspoilt peninsula of Akamas, drink from the legendary Fountain of Aphrodite in the hope of love, and hike, scuba dive and horse-ride. Life in Polis is beautiful and sedate, gateway to the Akamas peninsula, it is a heavenly step away from the madding crowds and is an area known for its beaches and authentic fish taverns.

Istanbul Gaze out over a skyline punctuated by towering minarets and gently curving domes, where history is apparent on every street and bustling modern life interweaves seamlessly with Byzantine, Ottoman and Roman architecture, grand mosques and tranquil tea houses. Bi-continental, Istanbul brings Europe and Asia together to create a diverse city of contrasts, offering a wealth of history and culture, nightlife, great shopping and a plethora of museums, trendy galleries and historical sites.

cit y guide get t ing a round Taxis are plentiful and a good way to get around the city but make sure you always use a yellow taxi and that the taxi meter is used. There is also a good range of bus services, a metro system and a tram. Istanbul is split in two by the Bosphorus also known as the Istanbul strait and there are many ferries and water taxis available to take you across. It is also bridged at a number of points, though a crossing charge will be added to your meter total if you are travelling by taxi.

w Her e TO go The Old City is a must for those with an interest in history. Home to a great array of historical architecture, some of its most popular attractions include the beautiful Hagia Sophia, the Sultanahmet Mosque and the Basilica Cistern. There are also some wonderful traditional restaurants, tea rooms and bazaars located in this area. New City is the modern epicentre of Istanbul. Abuzz with shops, restaurants and cafés, its vast malls and towering glass and metal structures are a far cry from the traditional styles seen throughout the Old City. This modern area also caters for those with an interest in history with some truly wonderful museums. Galata is hip and trendy and popular with the younger generation.

With lively bars, restaurants and nightclubs lining its streets, it is the place to see and be seen in Istanbul. In the evening dine in style and dance till dawn, and during the day visit some of the areas beautiful churches, museums and galleries. Princes Islands’ is an archipelago made up of a string of nine carfree islands. With a laid back atmosphere they are an ideal place for some rest and relaxation away from the bustle of the city.

w h at TO dO Istanbul is famed for its history and hosts a fair share of Byzantine, Ottoman and Roman architecture. Some of the attractions considered must-sees are the Topkapi Palace, which has a rich colourful past, the Aya Sofya also known as the Hagia Sofia or the Church of Divine Wisdom (which was the principal mosque of Istanbul for many years), the beautiful Blue Mosque and the Basilica Cistern. The Istanbul Archaeology Museums, located close to the Topkapi Palace, include the Museum of the Ancient Orient, the Archaeology Museum and the Tiled Pavilion, and is well worth a visit. Also popular is the Florence Nightingale Museum set within the Selimiye Army Barracks where she worked. The Rahmi M Koc Industrial Museum and the Museum of Turkish and Islamic Arts also offer a great deal for those with an interest in the traditions and history of Turkey.

EATING OUT

Whether it’s the traditional markets and bazaars like the vast and bustling Grand Bazaar and the Spice Bazaar where you can practice your haggling skills and find typically Turkish treasures, or the modern Kanyon, Cevahir and Profilo malls, where designer shops and high-end boutiques will give your credit cards a work out, if shopping is your passion, Istanbul can provide.

The Old City is perfect for anyone looking to experience traditional Turkish cuisine as there are many little restaurants, cafés and street vendors. Try local favourites such as patso, hamsi or kumpur. For international cuisine, New City is better suited due to its cosmopolitan nature. Perhaps dine in a restaurant overlooking the Bosphoros if you have the chance as the views are simply stunning and also try to sample the local ice-cream which, due to the inclusion of orchid root extract, is strangely chewy and unique to Turkey.

If you want to experience true Turkish pastimes, visit a hammam, or Turkish bath, where you will be steamed, soaked, splashed, scrubbed and massaged - a truly unmissable experience! A visit to a shisha café or a tranquil tea garden is also a must to really experience the heart of the city.
