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 ticket -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
Hop on board the optional excursion to Jungfrau ('The Top of Europe'), which takes you to the highest train station in Europe. The view is so beautiful it'll probably make you cry. Seriously. Want more adventure? Up the adrenaline by skydiving out of a helicopter, then head back down to earth for some snow angels and hot chocolate. Meals: -Breakfast Optional activities: -Scenic excursion to Jungfrau ('The Top of Europe') -Scenic helicopter ride in the Swiss Alps -Skydiving in the Swiss Alps -Schilthorn cable car ride
Day 5: Swiss Alps to Florence, Italy
Yodel your way down the mountains and into the land of hearty Tuscan cuisine and the birthplace of gelato: Florence. Then, the evening is yours to stroll along the real-life watercolour of the Arno River, wishing you were a painter. Enjoy! Meals: -Breakfast -Dinner
Day 6: 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. Meals: -Breakfast Included today: -Walking tour of Florence with local guide
Day 7: Florence to Rome
We're Romeward bound today for a rendezvous 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 8: 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 'til 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 9: 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 10: 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 opt in for a quintessential gondola ride on the Grand Canal (optional activity). 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 -Vaporetto ride in Venice Meals: -Breakfast Optional activities: -Gondola ride in Venice
