European Getaway

Glide through Venetian canals, whizz down the Swiss Alps, peek over the other side of the Berlin Wall and practice your Jungfrau mountain yodel so that France can hear you. Have your own Under The Tuscan Sun moment as you feast, take in the soaring pencil pines and attempt to be a very chic Italian (BYO wide brimmed hat and black sunnies). At night douse yourself in glitter in Monaco and always bet on black. All topped off with as much pizza, gelato, strudel, beer, chocolate, herring and macarons as your poor stomach can handle.

Product itinerary

DAY 1 LONDON TO PARIS, FRANCE (OR JOIN IN PARIS). Pinch yourself and Instagram your first selfie. We’ll show you the bright lights of Paris before an #epic picnic by the Eiffel Tower. (D) 

DAY 2 PARIS. Time for the Louvre and Sacré Coeur, the trendy bars in the Latin Quarter or a bike tour around town. Then: an optional cruise or cabaret show. (B) 

DAY 3 PARIS TO SWISS ALPS, SWITZERLAND. No rest for the wicked as we head across the Swiss border to the Alps, where Blofeld chased 007 down the ski slopes. Trade in Parisian streets for snowy peaks. Urban charm ain't got nothing on Swiss scenery. Upon arrival, chow down on local cuisine and hit the bar for a nightcap. (B,L,D) 

DAY 4 SWISS ALPS. Scenic hikes and jaw-dropping views are on today's agenda. Go for a mountain walk or hop on board the Jungfraubahn railway for an optional visit to the Jungfrau Mountain summit. Fairytale villages en route, plus sky-diving out of a helicopter (if heights don't scare you). (B,L)

DAY 5 SWISS ALPS TO FRENCH RIVIERA, FRANCE. Trade in your gruezi for bonjour as we follow in Napoleon's footsteps downwards to the glamorous French Riviera. Try your hand at celeb spotting as you explore the world's most lavish waterfront property. (B) 

DAY 6 FRENCH RIVIERA INCLUDING MONACO VISIT. Bring your paparazzi posse to the beach or just chill out under the Mediterranean sun. More glitz tonight as we hit Monaco and the Monte Carlo casinos. (B) 

DAY 7 FRENCH RIVIERA TO FLORENCE, ITALY. It's on to the renaissance romance of Florence. Take THAT shot at the Leaning Tower of Pisa before trucking on to the Tuscan hills outside Florence to eat, sleep, repeat in the foodie capital of the world. (B,D) 

DAY 8 FLORENCE. Culinary art meets renaissance art in a city that’s half artisan food market and half outdoor museum. Say ciao to the world’s most famous nude statue (Michelangelo’s David) then eat, eat, eat. (B) 

DAY 9 FLORENCE TO ROME. Step back to 753 BC in one of the world's oldest open-air museums on an in-depth walking tour and give that bucket list a workout. Make like Caesar 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. (B,D) 

DAY 10 ROME INCLUDING VATICAN CITY VISIT. We’re off to the Vatican City – home of the Pope, the Catholic Church and the best views of Rome. Check out the Sistine Chapel or head straight out to explore the piazzas. (B) 

DAY 11 ROME TO VENICE. To Verona for a bit of Romeo and Juliet at the world’s most famous balcony. Then on to Venice. (B,D) 

DAY 12 VENICE. Gondolas, canals and 118 bridges. You know what to do. (B,D) 

DAY 13 VENICE TO AUSTRIAN ALPS, AUSTRIA. Grab your #gopro, it’s action time! (B,L,D)

DAY 14 AUSTRIAN ALPS TO PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC. A sobering visit to the former concentration camp Mauthausen. Then: on to Prague we go! (B,L,D) 

DAY 15 PRAGUE. Hit up Prague Castle, the Charles Bridge and the Old Town Square or go golem chasing in the Jewish quarter. Prague is yours today. (B) 

DAY 16 PRAGUE TO BERLIN, GERMANY. We hit up the 800-year-old city Dresden before heading to funky and modern Berlin for a driving tour. (B,D) 

DAY 17 BERLIN. See Checkpoint Charlie, the Reichstag building and the Holocaust Memorial with a local guide or set your own agenda – we’ve cleared your schedule today. (B) 

DAY 18 BERLIN TO AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS. Home to cheese, clogs and tulips. Also home to the tallest people in the world, 15 Nobel prize winners and an undying love for herring. (B) 

DAY 19 AMSTERDAM. Explore the city by bike and check out the first Red Light District to turn into a tourist attraction. (B,D) 

DAY 20 AMSTERDAM TO LONDON, ENGLAND. Love and leave Amsterdam this morning as we ferry back to London. (B)
