  • Rome: Arrive in Rome, one of the world’s most historic cities. Marvel at the classical antiquities, medieval buildings, Renaissance palaces and Baroque churches. Toss a coin in the Trevi Fountain and see the Pantheon before crossing the border to the Vatican! 
  • Vatican City: Avoids the crowds with your VIP entry. Get special access to the Bramante Staircase – normally off limits to the public, admire Michelangelo’s art inside the Sistine Chapel before visiting St. Peter’s Basilica and then on to Florence!  
  • Florence: Travel with your Local Expert, admire the Duomo and take a stroll around the famous Piazza Della Signoria.
  • Cinque Terre: Onwards to the famous Italian Riviera and the stunning Cinque Terre – a UNESCO World Heritage site. Approach one of the fishing villages by boat and explore the medieval quarter or beach. Take a photo or two in this stunning part of the world before taking the train to your resort in Rapallo.
  • Lucerne’s Lakes: Cross the Alps to Lucerne. Embark on a scenic journey to the stunning summit of Mount Stanserhorn, where you’ll meet a Swiss Ranger. The rest of the day is all for you, go shop for fine watches or sit down and enjoy some delectable chocolates.  
  • Paris: It’s time to take on the City of Lights! See the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and the facades of the Louvre. Walk the Place de la Concorde and drive along the Champs Elysees to the Arc de Triomphe, and if you’re not too tired, use your free time to see one of the world-famous cabaret shows! Meet an avid foodie and explore neighbourhoods where Parisians go about their daily lives. Indulge in local delicacies in a patisserie, boulangerie, fromagerie and chocolatier and if you can still move why not use your free time to venture the Bohemian quarter?
