Day 1: London, England to Paris, France

All good things start with Paris. Meet the crew and grab some supplies before we hit the road early in the morning and jump across the English Channel. The home of Coco Chanel, the Pompidou Centre and the Mona Lisa, Paris more than deserves its reputation as the European capital for all things culture, fashion and food-related. What better way to start the trip than with a driving tour and delicious picnic next to the Eiffel Tower?



Day 2: Paris

This morning: free time en Français. From the Louvre and the Musée d'Orsay to the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysées, you'll be sure to make a solid dent in your bucket list. Later on, it's up to you: stretch those legs on an optional bike tour of Paris or simply roam the streets on your own. End your day with an optional Seine River cruise or a #throwback cabaret show.



Day 3: Paris to Swiss Alps, Switzerland

Trade in Parisian streets for snowy peaks. Home to the ‘Top of Europe’, 72 waterfalls and one of the largest nature conservations in Switzerland, Lauterbrunnen is where we'll be spending the night. Upon arrival, we’ll get stuck into an included dinner before heading to the bar for a nightcap. Cheers!



Day 4: Swiss Alps

Scenic hikes and jaw-dropping views are high on today's agenda. Go low key with a mountain walk or hop on board the Jungfraubahn railway for an optional visit to the Jungfrau Mountain summit. Expect plenty of fairytale villages en route! Another feast awaits your return, regardless of how you make your way back down.



Day 5: Swiss Alps to French Riviera, France

Trade in your gruezi for bonjour as we head to the glamorous French Riviera. Feel free to indulge in a bit of celeb spotting as you explore the world's most lavish waterfront property!



Day 6: French Riviera

This morning, you do you! Laze on the beach, or go wild in the designer boutiques in Nice's Old Town. Later: roll with the jet set on a guided tour and see how the 1% live (hint: it involves Ferraris and bathing in caviar). Feeling lucky? Hit the tables at the Monte Carlo Casino and make it rain (or not). Also today: a visit to a traditional French perfumery.



Day 7: French Riviera to Florence, Italy

Take THAT shot at the Leaning Tower of Pisa before we truck on to the Tuscan hills. Hello, Florence! Ready to eat, sleep, repeat in the foodie capital of the world?



Day 8: Florence to Rome

Time to give that bucket list a workout – we’re off to Rome! Did someone say walking tour? We’ll pass by the Pantheon, throw our two cents in the Trevi Fountain, sit on the Spanish Steps and check out the mighty Colosseum before the day is done. Tonight, you're in Disneyland for foodies. Have fun!



Day 9: Rome

Create the ultimate Roman Holiday in one day with a whirlwind of Vespas, espresso, two-cheek kisses and pizza the way it's supposed to taste. Count your blessings on an optional tour of Vatican City, then play ‘I-spy’ with two-and-a-half millennia worth of history. Want more? You could always shop till you drop on Via Condotti, head to Capitoline Hill for awesome views of the Roman Forum and Colosseum or just kick back in Piazza Navona for some dolce far niente (delicious idleness).



Day 10: Rome to Sailing in Greece

Play connect the dots with the stars or let the swell rock you to sleep as we ferry our way from bella Italia to Greece. Restaurants, bars, and cosy cabin rooms will keep you comfortable.



Day 11: Sailing in Greece

After a short drive along the Greek coastline, it’s on to our flotilla of yachts for three days of sun, sand and sailing on the Ionian Sea. By night, flaunt those European tan lines as we drop anchor and hop between authentic Greek tavernas for a hat-trick of feasting, table dancing and ouzo. You know the saying ‘too much of a good thing’? Neither do we.



Day 12: Sailing in Greece

A free day to sail, swim, eat, sleep, repeat. Kick back and spend the day your way.



Day 13: Sailing in Greece

More turquoise water, more swimming, more diving off boats, more epic Instagram shots... You could probably get used to this!



Day 14: Sailing in Greece to Tirana, Albania

What happens when you paint a former communist capital in vivid colours? According to Tirana's artist-turned-mayor-turned-TED speaker Edi Rama, people start paying taxes and crime rates plummet. True story. We’ll kick things off with a driving tour and a group dinner before we let you loose into the night.



Day 15: Tirana to Dubrovnik, Croatia

Press your nose to the window and soak up all the stunning views that race past the coach window as we make our way to the most famous walled city in Europe (stopping at Budva on the way). Later, we’ll take a wander around Dubrovnik's tiny cobblestoned streets and explore a few hidden cafés and shops before grabbing dinner and checking out the nightlife.



Day 16: Dubrovnik

Yay! A free day in Dubrovnik! Spend some time checking out the residential homes further up in the Old Town for some awesome views, then enjoy a cold beer on the wall as the sun sets over the Adriatic. Alternatively, take to the water for a spot of optional sea kayaking around the city walls. There’s also a Game of Thrones tour to get stuck into if that’s your jam.



Day 17: Dubrovnik to Zadar

Today we’ll listen to the ocean play an instrument in Zadar. Yep, you read that right! The Sea Organ is a quirky art installation nested within the city’s eclectic mix of Roman ruins and public art. More cool facts await you on an orientation tour with your brainy Trip Leader.



Day 18: Zadar to Venice, Italy

First up: an optional round of stalagmite spotting at the beautiful (not to mention huge) Postojna Cave. This all-natural maze of tunnels and caverns was hollowed out by the Pivka River around two MILLION years ago. True story! Then: time to say ciao to Venice. After checking into our accommodation, we’ll come face to face with an irresistible Italian (meal).



Day 19: Venice

You know it as The Floating City, but this place is actually sinking (slowly). Today we’ll check out a who's who of Venice's usual suspects on a guided walking tour (ticking off the likes of St Mark's Square and Accademia Bridge) before rounding things off with a vaporetto ride along the Grand Canal. Need suggestions for this afternoon? Insider tip: spend some time seeking out the epic Libreria Acqua Alta bookshop (or just go on a mission to find the perfect gelato).



Day 20: Venice

Share those incredible stories one last time over breakfast, then we’re outta here. See you on the flipside!
