DAY 1 LONDON, ENGLAND TO AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS (OR JOIN IN AMSTERDAM).
Kick off your Eurotrip with a canal dinner cruise to meet the wolfpack.
DAY 2 AMSTERDAM.
Your day, your way. Visit the Anne Frank House, pose in front of the ‘i amsterdam’ sign or do as the locals do on an optional bike tour. (B,D)
DAY 3 AMSTERDAM TO RHINE VALLEY, GERMANY.
Medieval castles, vineyards and the mighty Rhine River are all up next today. Raise a glass of wine to another day on your travels. (B,D)
DAY 4 RHINE VALLEY TO MUNICH.
This is the home of Oktoberfest and BMW so you know what to do. If you can’t afford a beamer, grab a stein. Why not seal the deal with a traditional pork knuckle at one of Munich’s famous beer halls? Make like a local. Prost! (B)
DAY 5 MUNICH TO VENICE, ITALY.
You know it as the floating city, but this place is actually sinking (slowly). Get lost in a maze of bridges, canals and gelato. We’ll hook you up with a gondola. Then go local with prosecco and peach puree, the Bellini was born here. (B)
DAY 6 VENICE TO ROME.
Down that espresso. Today we make a solid dent in your bucket list. Think Spanish Steps, Pantheon, the Roman Forum and Colosseum. Tonight’s carbs are guilt-free. (B)
DAY 7 ROME INCLUDING VATICAN CITY VISIT.
You won’t be fighting lions today, but that’s okay. Pay a visit to the Pope and check out the 360-degree views from the Basilica. Don’t miss the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel. With us, you skip the lines. (Vatican City entry optional). (B)
DAY 8 ROME TO FLORENCE.
Florence is a hat trick of great shopping, renaissance art and steak Florentine. Shop, eat, shop, eat, explore then eat again. (B,D)
DAY 9 FLORENCE TO LUCERNE, SWITZERLAND.
Prepare for more #epicviews as we head to the lakeside town Lucerne. Check out the famous Lion Monument, Chapel Bridge, Glacier Gardens and Hofkirche on a guided tour. (B)
DAY 10 LUCERNE TO PARIS, FRANCE.
There are only two places in the world where happiness is guaranteed: at home and in Paris. Ease yourself in with our city driving tour ticking off your whole Pinterest collection of OMG must-go-there spots. (B)
DAY 11 PARIS.
A day to channel your inner Parisian. Hang out with local creatives along the river and check out the Notre Dame. Finish off with a gourmet picnic under the Eiffel Tower and maybe check out a cabaret show in the Latin Quarter. (B,D)

Pack some macarons for the trip back home, or just, you know, keep travelling forever. (B)
