Day 1: London, England to Paris, France
Meet with the crew in London, aka one of the best cities in the world and home to the start of your Topdeck adventure. But don't get too comfy - we've got a show to get on the road. First stop: Paris. Prepare yourself for the ultimate driving tour and gourmet picnic under the Eiffel Tower and see why Paris has more than deserved its reputation as the European capital for all things culture, fashion and food. Get. Excited. Included today: -Driving tour of Paris & gourmet picnic by the Eiffel Tower Meals: -Dinner
Day 2: Paris
Ooh la la! With Parisian charm crammed into every nook and cranny, make sure you hit all of the iconic haunts. This morning: free time en Francais. From the Louvre and Musée d'Orsay to the l'Arc de Triomphe and Champs Elysées, you'll be sure to make a solid dent in your bucket list. Later, hop on an optional bike tour of Paris or roam the streets on your own. End your day with an optional Seine river cruise or a #throwback bohemian cabaret show. Meals: -Breakfast Optional activities: -Traditional cabaret show in Paris -Scenic river cruise on the Seine -Bike tour of Paris
Day 3: Paris to Swiss Alps, Switzerland
Trade in Parisian streets for snowy peaks. Little known but big on character, the villages up high will charm the pants off you with its jaw-dropping scenery and delightful village feels. Famous for its proximity to the hulking Mount Titlis, expect magazine-worthy photo ops and an included dinner to satisfy your mountainous appetite. Meals: -Breakfast -Dinner
Day 4: Swiss Alps
Rise and shine, you've got some serious exploring to do. Take in the mountain air by foot or bike. If you get a second wind, jump on the revolving gondola to the top of Mt Titlis and test your pano photo skills. Then head back down for some snow angels and search for the world's best hot chocolate. #hardlife. Meals: -Breakfast Optional Activities: -Scenic excursion to Mt. Titlis
Day 5: Swiss Alps to Florence, Italy
Yodel your way down the mountains, grab THAT shot at the Leaning Tower of Pisa then point your chariot to the land of the long boot. Make your food baby sing as we roll into the land of hearty Tuscan cuisine and birthplace of gelato: Florence. Then the evening is yours to stroll along the real-life watercolour of the Arno River. Included today: -Visit Pisa & the famous Leaning Tower Meals: -Breakfast
Day 6: Florence
Florence has more stories than Bilbo Baggins, more culture than a Shoreditch hipster and it gave the world gelato. Get schooled on the Medici family, stroll the Ponte Vecchio (the only bridge not bombed in WWII) and get an in-depth tour of the city with a local guide. Use the afternoon to search for a guy named David doing his best Blue Steel in the Accademia Gallery. Included today: -Walking tour of Florence with local guide Meals: -Breakfast -Dinner
Day 7: Florence to Rome
Southward and downward with a pit stop at the hilltop town of Orvieto to see the grand cathedral and dig into a wild boar panini. Then step back to 753 BC in one of the world's oldest open-air museums on an in-depth walking tour and give that bucket list a workout. Make like Caesar and work up a colossus hunger as you pass by the Pantheon, throw your two cents in the Trevi Fountain, sit on the Spanish Steps and visit the Colosseum. Tonight, the city is yours to feast on pizza and gelato until you drop. Included today: -Visit Orvieto -Walking tour of Rome Meals: -Breakfast
Day 8: Rome including Vatican City visit
Rome is the city of Renaissance, La Dolce Vita, pizza and colourful hand gestures. Tick off another country off the 'places to visits before I die' list with a stop at the Vatican City to see how Michelangelo messed around and created the High Renaissance, then play eye spy with two-and-a-half millennia worth of history. Shop 'til you drop on Via Condotti, head to Capitoline Hill for sick views of the Roman Forum and Colosseum or just kick back in Piazza Navona for some dolce far niente (delicious idleness). Meals: -Breakfast Optional activities: -Guided tour of Vatican City
Day 16: Berlin to Amsterdam, Netherlands
Cheese lovers, rejoice. Your next stop is a local Dutch farm to see how cheddar (and clogs) gets made. Next: Amsterdam = mayo-dipped fries and red lights. Get your bearings on a walking tour of the vibrant capital and see the Dam Square, Royal Palace and National Monument. Then: explore all that this notoriously liberal city has to offer. Included today: -Dutch cheese & clogs demonstration -Walking tour of Amsterdam Meals: -Breakfast
Day 15: Berlin
Shake off last night with a wander around the German capital. Optional: Third Reich walking tour and local insight into what the city was like under Nazi rule during World War II.

Day 14: Prague to Berlin, Germany
Get acquainted with 800 year-old Dresden - a city virtually destroyed in WWII and then rebuilt - and ogle the Frauenkirche before making your beard all the more ironic in Berlin. Prep yourself for currywurst, absinthe and more hipsters per capita than anywhere else. We'll drive you around to see the Berlin Wall, Checkpoint Charlie, the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag building before feasting on a hearty German meal. Included today: -Walking tour of the restored city of Dresden -Driving tour of Berlin Meals: -Breakfast -Dinner
Day 13: Prague
Your day, your way. Channel your inner bohemian and seek out the John Lennon memorial wall, then soak up some more Czech history at the National or Communist Museum or get a taste of the quirky local culture at a marionette puppet opera (you gotta see it to believe it). Snap a selfie at Prague's own Eiffel Tower, visit a miniatures museum, eat roast pork from one of the street vendors lining Old Town Square and drink beer. Good beer. Meals: -Breakfast Optional Activities: -Local beer tasting in Prague
Day 9: Rome to Venice
Hark! Maketh haste to whence the lady Juliet was wod in Verona. Snap a selfie at her balcony and join throngs of lovers leaving notes in the wall (or avoid the crowds and just marvel at the ancient arena). Say ciao to Venice from across the lagoon as we check into our hotel, have an Eat Pray Love-worthy relationship with an irresistible Italian (meal) and get pumped for living out your own version of The Italian Job tomorrow. Included today: -Walking tour of Verona Meals: -Breakfast -Dinner
Day 11: Venice to Austrian Alps, Austria
Prepare your retinas for the scenery playing outside the coach windows and yodel around the mountain as we make our way to the Alps.

Meals: -Breakfast -Dinner Optional Activities: -Canyoning -Tandem paragliding in the Austrian Alps -Skydiving in the Austrian Alps -Bike tour in the Austrian Alps
Day 10: Venice
100+ slowly sinking islands won't explore themselves. Get your bearings on this morning's walking tour, then get hopelessly lost. Your GPS won't save you here. Corny smooching not included.

Guinness World Record-setting (and Disney-inspiring) castle spires are Prague's way of welcoming weary travellers. Fuel up on trdelník (pastry deliciousness) before a walking tour amongst the spires and cobblestone streets. Suss out the castle deemed worthy by Guinness World Records as being the largest ancient castle in the world, cross medieval Charles Bridge and watch 'Death' toll the hour on an astronomical clock that's over 600 years old.
