Day 1: London, England to Paris, France (or join in Paris)
Leave London for dust as we jump over the English Channel to France for a beauty smackdown. Brush up on your bonjours when you meet the rest of the group and wrap your lips around your first real French meal at our included dinner. See the City of Light at its best on a driving tour and play landmark bingo with the Eiffel Tower, the Champs Élysées and the Arc de Triomphe. Included today: -English Channel ferry tickets -Driving tour of Paris Meals: -Dinner
Day 2: Paris
A free day in Paris to get involved with pastries, paintings and the Centre Pompidou. Bike along the Seine on an optional tour or just flâner (stroll) around and drink it in. Check out L'éclair de Génie in le Marais (don't ask questions), get your obligatory Eiffel Tower #selfie then explore the world's largest grave at the Catacombs. Tonight, experience the razzle dazzle of a cabaret show or hop on a boat down the river to crank the romance dial to 11. Meals: -Breakfast Optional activities: -Traditional cabaret show in Paris -Seine River cruise -Bike tour of Paris
Day 3: Paris to Swiss Alps, Switzerland
Tear yourself away from that baguette – fondue awaits! The vistas out your window today are gorgeous. Unlike the Toblerone box, the Swiss Alps aren't all lined up perfectly, so we weave up through the breathtaking valleys and peaks to reach our destination. Grab your forks and prepare to cover everything in cheese at dinner tonight. Meals: -Breakfast -Dinner
Day 4: Swiss Alps
Wake up, eat hearty then go Stallone all over the Alps. Or just settle in with some Gluhwein. If you get a second wind, jump on the revolving gondola to the top of Mount Titlis and test your pano photo skills. Then head back down for some snow angels and hot chocolate. Meals: -Breakfast Optional activities: -Scenic excursion to Mount Titlis
Day 5: Swiss Alps to Milan, Italy via Leichtenstein
Stop in the tax haven of Liechtenstein to deposit your billions before we make our way to fashion's capital: Milan. Home to Gucci, Versace, Prada, Armani and Dolce & Gabbana, you'd think the fashion would be the best looking part of the city. Wrong. The Duomo is the fifth largest Christian church in the world. It took 600 years to build (they're still not finished), it has over 3,400 statues and is prettier than the entire Victoria's Secret fashion show lineup. See it and more on an afternoon walking tour. Included today: -Visit Liechtenstein -Walking tour of Milan Meals: -Breakfast
Day 6: Milan to Florence
If you're going to make something wrong it better be good looking. Failures don't come any more beautiful than the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Snap a pic (you know the one) then get ready to roll into the land of Tuscan cuisine and birthplace of gelato: Florence. Included today: - Visit Pisa & the Leaning Tower Meals: -Breakfast -Dinner
Day 7: Florence
Get schooled on the Medici family, stroll the Ponte Vecchio and learn about leather (new handbag, anyone?) on a morning walking tour. Use the afternoon to meet a guy named David doing his best Blue Steel in the Accademia Gallery, shop the markets and hunt down the best aperitivo spreads. Included today: -Walking tour of Florence with local guide Meals: -Breakfast
Day 8: Florence to Rome
We're Romeward bound today for a rendez-vous with ancient architecture's biggest players. Make like Caesar (the emperor, not the salad) and work up a colossus hunger as you pass by the Pantheon, throw your two cents in the Trevi Fountain and sit on the Spanish Steps. Tonight, you're in Disneyland for foodies. Have fun . Included today: -Visit the town of Orvieto -Walking tour of Rome Meals: -Breakfast
Day 9: Rome including Vatican City visit
Create the ultimate Roman Holiday in one day with a whirlwind of Vespas, espresso, two-cheek kisses and pizza the way it's supposed to taste. Pop in on the Pope on an optional tour of the Vatican City, then play I spy with two-and-a-half millennia worth of history. Shop ‘till you drop on Via Condotti, head to Capitoline Hill for awesome 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 10: Rome to Venice
Snap a selfie at Juliet’s famous balcony in Verona and join throngs of lovers leaving notes on 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 and tuck into a yummy dinner together. Included today: -Walking tour of Verona Meals: -Breakfast -Dinner
Day 11: Venice
100+ slowly sinking islands won't explore themselves. Get your bearings on this morning's walking tour before an action packed day. Soak up St Mark's Square and get ready for a quintessential gondola ride on the Grand Canal. Corny smooching not included. This afternoon, snoop the Doge's Palace, cross Rialto Bridge and shop for Carnevale masks. There’s so much going on here. Did we mention it’s beautiful? Included today: -Walking tour of Venice -Gondola ride in Venice -Vaporetto ride in Venice Meals: -Breakfast
Day 12: Venice to Austrian Alps, Austria
Mountains, skiing and beer = we're on our way to Austria. Time to get your Schwarzenegger impression perfect. Prepare for beautiful scenery playing outside the coach windows and yodel around the mountain as we make our way to the Alps. A home cooked meal will prep you for the high octane, snowy adventure ahead. Meals: -Breakfast -Dinner Optional activities: -Tobogganing in Austria
Day 13: Austrian Alps
Red Bull was born here and once you ski, snowboard and paraglide you'll see why. Multiple ski zones are in yodelling distance, you lucky thang. Don't be intimidated by some of the world's best skiers zooming past you because beginner slopes are on offer here, too. Prefer the après-ski action? You won’t be short of options that’s for sure. Meals: -Breakfast Optional activities: -Skiing in Austria -Snowboarding in Austria
Day 14: Austrian Alps
Ski. Snowboard. Sleigh ride. Repeat. Or just sit and stare at the storybook landscape like a lovesick puppy. There’s also hot chocolates and people watching in the chalets if that’s more your thing. Meals: -Breakfast Optional activities: -Skiing -Snowboarding
Day 15: Austrian Alps to Munich, Germany
Leave the Alpine temperatures behind and warm up in Munich. It's time to get to know the city. Why not slide on your Lederhosen and get amongst it at the 426-year-old Hofbräuhaus – the recipes here were passed down from Wilhelm V, the Duke of Bavaria. Prost! Included today: -Walking tour of Munich Meals: -Breakfast
Day 16: Munich
We say goodbye today in Munich after breakfast. Group hug it out then start planning your next adventure. Meals: -Breakfast
