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! Visit England, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, and France with overnights in London, Brussels, the Frankfurt area, the Innsbruck area, the Venice area, the Lucerne area, Dijon, and Paris.
After spending some time in London, you’ll 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 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; Lucerne, 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.
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!
