Your Itinerary

Day 01:London, England to Paris, France

Leave London for dust – today we’ll be jumping over the English Channel to France for a beauty smackdown. Brush up on your bonjours, then wrap your lips around your first real French meal at our included dinner. We’ll even drive you around to see the city all lit up on a driving tour. Prepare to see the Eiffel Tower, the Champs Élysées and the Arc de Triomphe looking all twinkly!

TODAY'S HIGHLIGHTS:English Channel crossing | Driving tour of Paris
MEALS: Dinner

Day 02: Paris

You’ve got a free day in Paris, so make sure you get your fill of pastries, paintings and the Pompidou Centre. Bike along the Seine on an optional tour or just stroll around and drink it in. Check out L'Éclair de Génie in le Marais (don't ask questions), get your obligatory Eiffel Tower #selfie then explore the world's largest grave at the Catacombs. Tonight, experience the razzle dazzle of an optional cabaret show or hop on an optional boat trip down the river and crank the romance dial to 11.

MEALS:Breakfast
OPTIONAL EXTRAS: Traditional cabaret show in Paris | Seine river cruise | Bike tour of Paris.

Day 03: Paris to Swiss Alps, Switzerland

The vistas out your window today will be gorgeous! Unlike the Toblerone box, the Swiss Alps aren't all lined up perfectly, so we'll weave up through the breathtaking valleys and peaks to reach our destination.

MEALS: Breakfast | Dinner

Day 04: Swiss Alps

Today, why not hop aboard the optional train excursion to Jungfrau ('The Top of Europe')? The view is so beautiful it’ll probably make you cry (seriously). Want more adventure? Up the adrenaline and opt in to skydive out of a helicopter, then head back down to earth for some snow angels and hot chocolate.

MEALS: Breakfast | Dinner
OPTIONAL EXTRAS: Scenic excursion to Jungfrau ('The Top of Europe') | Scenic helicopter ride in the Swiss Alps | Skydiving in the Swiss Alps | Tickets for the Schilthorn cable car.

Day 05: Swiss Alps to Florence, Italy

If you're going to make something wrong, it better be good looking – and failures don't come any more beautiful than the Leaning Tower of Pisa! Snap a photo (you know the one), then get ready to roll into the land of Tuscan cuisine and birthplace of gelato: Florence.

TODAY'S HIGHLIGHTS: Visit Pisa and the famous Leaning Tower.
MEALS: Breakfast | Dinner

Day 06: Florence

Wakey wakey! Florence is ready and waiting. There’s a guided walking tour of the city's greats to get stuck into this morning. Think: the Ponte Vecchio, Florence Cathedral and that famous naked guy, David.

TODAY'S HIGHLIGHTS: Local guide in Florence
MEALS: Breakfast

Day 07: Florence to Rome

First today: at stop in Orvieto. Then: ready for a rendezvous with ancient architecture's biggest players? On today’s epic walking tour, we’ll pass by the Pantheon, check out the Trevi Fountain and sit on the Spanish Steps. Oh – and did we mention the Colosseum? Tonight, you're in Disneyland for foodies. Have fun.

TODAY'S HIGHLIGHTS: Visit Orvieto | Walking tour of Rome
MEALS: Breakfast

Day 08: Rome

Awesome! You’ve got a free day in the city of Vespas, espresso, two-cheek kisses and pizza the way it's supposed to taste. Play ‘I spy’ with two-and-a-half millennia worth of history, shop ‘til you drop on Via Condotti, head to Capitoline Hill for incredible views of the Roman Forum and Colosseum or just kick back in Piazza Navona for some dolce far niente (delicious idleness).

MEALS: Breakfast
OPTIONAL EXTRAS: Guided tour of the Vatican City.

Day 09: Rome

Make it an espresso doppio this morning – you're on your own from here. Why not stay a bit longer and get to know this ancient powerhouse a little better?

MEALS: Breakfast
