ITINERARY

Day 1: Depart Australia (I/F)

Bid au revoir to Australia today as you board your international flight bound for the glittering ‘City of Lights”, Paris.

Day 2: Arrive Paris (D)

Bonjour, welcome to Paris! Upon arrival, you will be transferred to your hotel to drop off your bags and set off on a guided sightseeing tour. Prepare to be seduced by the wrought-iron Eiffel Tower, see the stained glass windows of Notre Dame Cathedral, the iconic Arc de Triomphe and so much more.

Afterwards, enjoy dinner in the eclectic Latin Quarter, before travelling back to the hotel on Paris’ world famous metro system.

Day 3: Paris Free Day (B, D)

All of Paris lies before you today, with no shortage of things to do or see! You could spend the day perusing the labyrinthine Louvre Museum or strolling the art nouveau cafes of Le Marais. Wander down the Champ Elysees or venture deep underground into the heart of the infamous Catacombs.

Your tour leader is brimming with ideas and local knowledge, so if you’re stuck for ideas, they’ll definitely be able to help get you inspired.

Day 4: Paris – Burgundy – Beaujolais – Avignon (B, D)

Trade the metropolis of Paris for beautiful medieval streets and postcard-perfect views this morning as you stop in Burgundy for lunch on your own, then it’s off to Beaune for a tipple of wine at a local chateau.

Continuing on to Avignon, watch as magnificent ancient churches and fortified city walls unfold around on you on a guided walking tour, before dinner at a local restaurant.

Day 5: Avignon – Pont du Gard – Barcelona (B, D)

Drive through the idyllic French countryside to see the impressive three-tiered arches of the Roman Pont du Gard this morning, before traversing Spain’s wildly diverse landscapes to the picturesque seaside city of Barcelona.

Embarking on a driving tour of this fabled city before dinner, be sure to take note of all the places you want to see on your free day tomorrow!

Day 6: Barcelona Free Day (B)

The sun-drenched beaches are the ultimate backdrop for your free day today. You could drink in the deep blue Mediterranean vistas from out on the water or, closer to the city centre, the Gothic Quarter will take you back to the middle ages with soaring 14th-century cathedrals.

Why not cap off your free day with a traditional paella or tapas, chased by an exotic cocktail in the old town?

Day 7: Barcelona – Arles – French Riviera (B)

Sun-baked golden stone, Roman treasures, Van Gogh art and impressive architecture make Arles the perfect stepping stone on your way to the French Riviera today. Spend some free time exploring this living canvas before continuing your journey to the Mediterranean coastline.

Day 8: French Riviera – Monaco Sightseeing (B)

Known for its old-world opulence and stunning seaside location, the French Riviera has been a magnetic tourist destination since the 19th-century thanks to its bewitching markets, enchanting old town and treasure trove of restaurants. Soak in the splendour at your leisure this morning and this afternoon visit Monaco, stopping via a French Perfumery enroute.

Upon arrival, stroll up to the Prince’s Palace for dazzling views overlooking yachts in the harbour, before a visit to the legendary Casino de Monte-Carlo. You’ll have some free time to see if Lady Luck is on your side (entry is not included).

Day 9: French Riviera – Pisa – Florence – Tuscany (B)

Keep your camera handy today as you visit the quintessential Leaning Tower of Pisa on your way to Tuscany. After you’ve got the perfect ‘tourist shot’, continue onto Florence for a guided walking tour.

Keep your camera handy as you make stops to see the Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Vecchio, the Basilica of Santa Croce, the Florence Baptistry and a replica of Michelangelo’s statue of David. After seeing what the ‘birthplace of the Renaissance’ has to offer, continue on to Tuscany where you will spend the night.

Day 10: Tuscany – Rome (B, D)

Rome, an ancient city that has seen the rise and fall of entire empires. There is no shortage of historical real estate to feast your eyes upon today. Upon arrival in this living history book, discover Rome on foot with a guided walking tour of the Spanish Steps, Pantheon, Piazza Navona, the Roman Forum and Colosseum.

On your way to your hotel later, start planning what you’ll do tomorrow with your free day – the Vatican City is unmissable!

Day 11: Rome Free Day (B)

Rome wasn’t built in a day, but luckily you have all of today to explore to your heart’s content. You could visit the world’s smallest city, sample authentic Italian cuisine, grab some gelato or toss a coin into the waters of the famed Trevi Fountain.

Day 12: Rome – Siena – Venice (B)

Leaving Rome, explore the fortified city of Siena, a medieval open-air museum where you can marvel at vibrant squares, artisanal markets and be tempted by seductive pasticceria (pastry shops).

Later, arrive in Venice. Get acquainted with the timeless waterways with an independent tour, or join your tour leader on an optional twilight water taxi cruise of the glittering canals.

Optional Activity:

  • Twilight water taxi cruise (AUD $55 per person).

Day 13: Venice (B)

Start the day with an orientation tour to get your bearings, before splitting off to explore on your own. No visit to Venice is complete without a gondola ride, so organise your cruise with your guide before getting lost in Venice’s labyrinth bridges and cobbled alleyways.

Depending on which way you go, you may end up at the Plaza de San Marco or mosaic-clad Basilica, visit a Murano Glass Blowing Workshop or taste any number of culinary delights!

Day 14: Venice – Bellinzona – Swiss Alps (B, D)

Trade in gondolas for yodelling today as you make your way from Venice to the Swiss Alps, stopping at the foot of the mountain in Bellinzona for some free time and a bite to eat on your own.

Home to some of the most iconic and breathtaking peaks in the world, enjoy dinner upon arrival and start to plan what you’ll do on your free day tomorrow.

Day 15: Swiss Alps Free Day (B)

You won’t find fresher air or more breathtaking views than atop the summit of the Swiss Alps, so why not grab some boots and journey to Jungfraujoch’s mighty summit on an optional mountain excursion.

Optional Activity:

  • Swiss Alps summit expedition – journey to Jungfraujoch’s summit from Europe’s highest train station today. Watch as the picture-perfect countryside rolls beneath you, with quaint villages nestled in the passing valleys. At the summit of ‘Europe’, enjoy breathtaking panorama and the crisp snow air (AUD $109 per person).

Day 16: Swiss Alps – Black Forest – Rhine Valley (B, D)

Take a turn through a fairytale forest today as you leave Switzerland and drive through the Black Forest’s canopy of evergreens and lofty cliffs in Germany. Afterwards, enjoy some free time in Baden-Baden for lunch – if you get a chance, the thermal baths and casino are must-sees!

Then it’s off to Rhine Valley for a riverboat cruise past Europe’s most concentrated stretch of castles, vineyards and idyllic villages. Later, you’ll be treated to a wine tasting at a nearby vineyard.

Day 17: Rhine Valley – Amsterdam (B)

The Netherlands is your next destination. Enroute, enjoy a photo in front of an iconic windmill followed by a traditional (and delicious) cheese-making demonstration and clog-making workshop.

Upon arrival in Amsterdam, check in to your hotel and glide down the canal-woven core on a river cruise. Spend the remainder of the evening at your leisure.

Day 18: Amsterdam Free Day (B)

Discover Amsterdam freely today. You’ll have plenty of time to wander the city’s wonderful floating flower market, the Bloemenmarkt, or infamous Red Light District, take in Van Gogh’s Museum and perhaps check out Golden Age treasures in the Rijksmuseum. It’s up to you on this day of leisure!

Tired of Museums? Hire a bicycle and make like a local down the atmospheric narrow lanes, maybe with a stopover in a local coffee shop.

Day 19: Amsterdam – Depart for Australia (B)

Say goodbye to your fellow travellers this morning as your European expedition concludes after breakfast. Transfer to the airport for your international flight home.

Day 20: Arrive in Australia (I/F)

Arrive home today with plenty of spellbinding memories and mementos from your incredible adventure.
