1 Arrive Rome (2 Nights)
Ciao Roma! Welcome to the Eternal City - once home to gods and goddesses, emperors, senators and slaves. Explore the city's bustling boulevards and labyrinthine lanes before meeting your fellow travellers and Travel Director at a Welcome Reception. This evening we embark on an orientation drive revealing some of the city's most celebrated sights. (WR) Stay: Grand Tiberio
2 Rome Sightseeing And Free Time
The Holy See takes centre stage today as we join a Local Specialist for a sightseeing tour that will see us visit the 17th-century St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican City and witness Michelangelo's sorrowful Pietà, a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture. We cross the Tiber into Ancient Rome to delve into what was once the largest empire in the world and view such ancient sites as the imposing Colosseum where brave gladiators and slaves duelled to their deaths. Later, enjoy some free time to explore the picturesque piazze of Rome. Sit on the Spanish Steps and shop up a storm on Via Condotti or perhaps join an Optional Experience to see the exquisite frescoed ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. (BB)
3 Rome - Florence Sightseeing
We travel north into the vineyard-clad hills of Tuscany and along the Arno River Valley. 'Connect With Locals' in their castle during a Be My Guest lunch, before continuing to Florence, the birthplace of the Renaissance. Learn about the quality and workmanship of one of this city's historic industries at a demonstration of Florentine leathercraft. Then, join a Local Specialist for an enchanting encounter with one of the world's cultural centres, admiring the exquisite architecture and artistry around every turn. View the marble Duomo and Piazza della Signoria, the political hub of Florence before arriving at your hotel. (BB/L) Stay: Grand Mediterraneo
4 Florence - Venice
The romantic island city of Venice is our final destination today. We take to San Marco's waters, cruising the canals and admiring views of the imposing St. Mark's Basilica and ornate Doge's Palace. We'll 'Dive Into Culture' next and witness the centuries-old art of Venetian glassblowing before enjoying an afternoon at leisure to explore narrow calle in search of a cosy bacaro where you can enjoy delicious Venetian cuisine washed down with a Campari Spritz or two. If you have time, venture to the enchanting canal-side setting of St. Mark's Square - the sounds of talented musicians, seagulls and lapping water provide the perfect backdrop for a memorable sunset over the Grand Canal. (BB) Stay: Novotel Mestre Castellana
5 Venice - Lucerne
We depart Venice, travelling north into the picturesque Italian and Swiss Lake Districts via Como and Lugano. Slicing through the Alps, we arrive in Switzerland and the laidback lakeside city of Lucerne. The city is perhaps most famous for its solid wooden Chapel Bridge and poignant Lion Monument, a memorial to Swiss Guards. Enjoy an afternoon at leisure, amble through the Old Town or consider joining an Optional Experience and ascend one of the surrounding mountain peaks for panoramic views. Tonight, we stay at one of Trafalgar's 'Stays With Stories' - the Grand Hotel Europe promising sweeping lake vistas. (BB) Stay: Grand Europe
6 Lucerne - Paris (2 Nights)
From Lucerne, we head into France and through the rolling vineyard-clad hills of Burgundy, one of the country's largest wine-producing areas. Arriving in Paris, we enjoy a free evening. Wander up grand boulevards and along the scenic Seine, grab a bite to eat and sip wine at a cosy bistro or consider attending one of the city's famous colourful cabaret shows. (BB) Stay: Renaissance La Defense
7 Paris Sightseeing And Free Time
Join a Local Specialist today and see the Arc de Triomphe and Place de la Concorde. Visit the world-famous Notre Dame Cathedral and enjoy a stroll through the Latin Quarter. This evening, join your Travel Director and fellow travellers at a memorable Farewell Dinner. (BB/FD)
8 Paris - London
Our last day together sees us cross the tragic Somme battlefields en route to Calais from where we set sail across the English Channel to Dover and travel through Kent to London. (BB)
