Weave through the charming hillside villages of the Cinque Terre, taking the stunning coastal path high above the sea. Cool off with a dip in the blue waters below and maybe make a batch of fresh pesto in a cooking class.
Stroll through ever-fashionable Milan and marvel at its magnificent Duomo. Travel by train to pristine Stresa, which boasts magnificent views of the Alps. Board a ferry and head out to explore the beautiful Borromean Islands - perhaps taking in the hanging gardens of the romantic palatial residence on the shores of serene Lake Maggiore.
Farewell Italy and travel into the resplendent alpine landscape of Switzerland. In free time, enjoy a boat tour on placid Lake Lucerne, learn the story behind the emotive Lion Monument or take a ride on the world's steepest cogwheel railway to the summit of Mt Pilatus.
Visit the spectacular Trummelbach Falls while taking in staggering mountain views. Head to the Schilthorn peak for an authentic James Bond experience or work up an appetite for traditional Swiss treats, like fondue, on an optional mountain biking adventure.
Travel by train through the Swiss capital of Bern and cross the border into Dijon, France. Embark on an odyssey of indulgence in a region renowned for boeuf bourguignon and mustard. Take a day trip to Beaune, where Burgundy's best wines are produced, and scour the countryside on two wheels.
Raise a glass in Reims, a city steeped in history and renowned for its bubbles and royal intrigues. Visit champagne caves for an insight into the drink's effervescent magic. While here, be sure to check out the elaborate Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Reims, a sacred place where French kings were once crowned.
Stroll along the Seine and be enchanted by Paris, a city that has inspired artists and lovers throughout the ages. Enjoy free time to explore and discover the myriad of tourist attractions in Paris. Peruse the art-filled corridors of the Louvre or visit Sacre Coeur in vibrant Montmartre. Indulge in more fine French cuisine before saying 'au revoir' to this romantic destination.
