A Woman's Europe is a collection of inspiring and entertaining true stories by women about their travels throughout the Continent. Europe also has an irresistibly romantic appeal. It's a place of old-world elegance, with centuries of history, rich art and architecture. It is this romantic ideal that pulls more travellers to Europe than Asia or elsewhere, and that appeals to women in particular. These stories highlight women discovering peculiarly European pleasures - the romantic realities of a gondolier's life on a ride through the Venice canals; meeting a comforting Swiss matron when a village visit becomes lonely and confusing; the meaning behind rituals like picking olives or learning flamenco; and more.
