Itinerary

Day 1 London, England - Tour Begins

Your tour opens in London, home to Big Ben, Parliament, Harry Potter, and the Queen. Come together with your fellow travelers and toast the start of an incredible journey during a welcome dinner in England’s sophisticated capital city.

Day 2 London

This morning, check out the quintessential sights of London. Alongside a local guide, see the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, and the Houses of Parliament. Afterward, enjoy some time at leisure to explore this iconic city on your own.

Day 3 London - Eurostar Train - Paris, France

Go behind the gothic façade of St Pancras railway station. Inside this masterpiece of Victorian engineering, board the high-speed Eurostar train. Relax in style as you’re whisked away to Paris. Arrive in the “City of Light.” Famous for its world-renowned art, food and fashion, Paris’ history will astound you, and its style will dazzle you. See its best during a panoramic city tour featuring Notre Dame Cathedral, Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Elysees, and more. Enjoy breathtaking views of Paris along with French cuisine during an unforgettable dining experience at the Eiffel Tower!

Day 4 Paris

Enjoy a full day to explore Paris independently. Perhaps you will have lunch in the Marais, wander the neighborhood around the Opera Garnier, or head north to Montmartre and watch artists at work. Or, choose to go on a locally-led tour* of the Louvre, home to more than a million precious works of art, including the Venus de Milo and Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.

Day 5 Paris - TGV Train - Lucerne, Switzerland

Embark on a rail journey from Paris to Lucerne on board the TGV, France’s high-speed train. Take in magnificent scenery as you bid au revoir to France and cross into Switzerland. Discover why Lucerne has been rated Switzerland’s most beautiful city during a leisurely walking tour. Among stunning views of the lake and the mountains, journey through city streets, covered bridges, lakeside promenades, and bustling plazas.

Day 6 Lucerne - Venice, Italy

This morning, travel south through the pastoral landscapes of Switzerland. Crossing into Italy, traverse through the heart of the Alps, taking in vistas of snow peaked mountains as far as the eye can see. Pass through the bucolic Italian Lake District, a holiday destination since Roman times.

Day 7 Venice - Florence

Cruise to the island of Murano** which is renowned for its long tradition of glass making. Embark on a leisurely walking tour of Venice with its collection of 117 tiny islands, surrounded by a latticework of 150 canals and 400 bridges. In this floating city, see the Clock Tower, St. Mark’s Basilica, and marble palaces on gondola-laden canals. This evening, stop at a vineyard in the heart of Chianti for a tour, tasting and traditional fare. Continue to Florence, where you’ll spend tonight amongst the beauty of the Tuscan region’s capital, home to masterpieces of art and iconic symbols of centuries-old history.

Day 8 Florence

Today you tour Florence, home of the Medici, Gucci, and il Duomo. Stroll the city streets for a real-life history lesson, and discover the four pillars of city life: art, architecture, food, and fashion. Visit the Piazza del Duomo and the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore. You’ll also visit the Galleria dell’Accademia, home to the greatest collection of Renaissance art – most especially Michelangelo’s David.

Day 11 Rome - Tour Ends

Your European adventure comes to a close today.

Day 9 Florence - Rome

Say addio to Florence, and head for Rome! Enjoy an afternoon at leisure upon arrival. Gaze at the Pantheon, and see the oval-shaped Piazza Navona that’s lined with restaurants and souvenir shops. Or, you may choose to join an optional tour to the Vatican, one of the most sacred places on Earth. A UNESCO World Heritage site, discover masterpieces of art and architecture that surround St. Peter’s Basilica and St. Peter’s Square, where the Pope has addressed thousands of people.

Day 10 Rome

This morning, set out for the “Eternal City,” and a walking tour of classical Rome. Bask in the cultural treasures of the city, where sites include the Piazza Venezia, the Roman Forum, the Circus Maximus, and the Arch of Constantine. Later on, walk in the steps of gladiators at the spectacular, near-mythic Colosseum. Tonight, gather with new friends and toast the end of an epic journey through Europe at a farewell dinner.

Went to Italy with Collette in May. Our guide, Daniel Boghen, was spectacular! Our driver, Antonio, was a joy! Knowledgeable, organized, responsive. Hotels were lovely, food delicious. Saw many things that I don't think I would have known about if not for the experience of the guide. It was quite busy, a lot of walking, but that allowed us to see so much! Trip went from Rome to Pompeii, sorrento, Pisa, Verona, Venice, Florence and Lucano, Switzerland...with stops along the way to a vineyard for lunch, dinner with opera singers in Rome, dinner on an island in Lake Maggiore, the catacombs in Rome, gondola ride -- with musicians in Venice...would recommend this trip! Can't wait to return!
