Overview

If you want to see Western Europe’s main highlights but don’t have a lot of time, this European tour is the vacation for you!

After spending some time in London, you will travel to Brussels on the Eurostar train, the easiest way to connect the two European cities. You will then carry on by tour coach along Germany’s Romantic Road, a trade route during the Middle Ages and now known for its charming villages, cobblestone streets, walled cities, half-timbered houses, and scenic countryside. You’ll visit one of these medieval towns, Rothenburg, a walled town that has retained its fascinating character. Relax and take in the wonderful views of castle-crested hills, terraced vineyards, and pretty wine towns on the included scenic cruise along the Rhine River. . Take a boat ride in Venice along the Giudecca Canal to St. Mark’s Square, allowing you to admire some of the the palazzos and maze of streets. While in Venice, take the opportunity to watch glassblowers create their works as they have done for centuries.

Some other must-sees on this iconic Europe tour are romantic Verona, the Italian city made famous by Romeo and Juliet; your stay in the Lucerne area, one of Switzerland’s finest cities, situated on the shores of breathtaking Lake Lucerne and nestled within the snow-capped Swiss Alps. And, last but not least, Paris, capital of France and one of the most celebrated cities on the old Continent. Here, your tour guide will show you some of the most famous sights in Paris—including the Arc de Triomphe and Eiffel Tower— on the city sightseeing tour. Travel back to London on the high-speed Eurostar train and spend an additional night in London. This will allow you to maybe go out and catch up on anything you missed out at the beginning of your vacation.

In a short period of time, this affordable European tour offers it all—historic sights, big cities, quaint towns, and scenic beauty. It’s a marvelous vacation!
