Day 3: Paris to Swiss Alps, Switzerland

Then we're Romeward bound 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: -Walking tour of Florence with local guide -Walking tour of Rome Meals: -Breakfast
Day 7: Rome including Vatican City visit

Day 8: 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).
