Itinerary

Bienvenue a Paris! For those who have the flexibility to arrive a few days early, this city will not disappoint! Perhaps scale the Eiffel Tower, traipse through the hallways of the Louvre, wander along the Champs Elysees or park up at a streetside cafe and observe the passing parade of Parisians.
Sit back and relax as the French countryside rolls by on a train ride to Dijon. Marvel at the Romanesque architecture, quaint narrow streets and endless green fields that make this region of France such a joy to explore. Savour a meal of local specialties in Beaune and indulge in a spot of wine tasting at one of Burgundy's internationally acclaimed vineyards.
Travel by train to the picturesque Provencal town of Avignon, home to French-born popes for more than a century. Be spellbound by the Palais de Papes, the world's largest Gothic palace and see the remnants of the 12th-century Pont St-Benezet. While here, perhaps venture out to stroll among the spirits at ancient Les Alyscamps graveyard, the final resting place of some 80 generations past.
Explore the stylish Cote d'Azur from a base in the seaside city of Nice. Live it up with Europe's high rollers on a day trip to Monaco, perhaps stopping by the famous Monte Carlo Casino. In free time, join a perfume tour in Grasse, hit the beach in Cannes or explore the medieval cliff-top village of Eze.
Admire sheer mountains floating high above and a sparkling sea below while following this spectacular coastal path between five pastel-coloured villages. Walk through lush olive groves and vineyards, then perhaps take a dip in the Mediterranean and dine on fresh seafood by the waterfront.
Pay a visit to Pisa's leaning tower before perusing the fountains, statues and buildings of Florence - Italy's outdoor museum. Take in many splendid highlights of this city, including the Piazzale Michelangelo, the Ponte Vecchio and the iconic statue of David in the Galleria dell'Accademia. Sample more delightful local drops on an excursion to the Chianti region.
Travel to Rome by train and see how Italy’s 'Eternal City' is hectic, bold and timeless all at once. Uncover some cultural icons on a walking tour. Before the tour ends, perhaps delve into the heart of Catholicism with a visit to the Vatican City and St Peter’s Basilica, gaze at the mesmerising artwork of the Sistine Chapel and walk straight into the pages of history at the Colosseum.
