2017 Tour Details View 2016 Tour Details »

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.

One of the tour highlights is a drive 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, with astop in Rothenburg, a walled town that has retained its medieval character. Enjoy an included scenic cruise along the Rhine River, famous for its castle-crested hills, terraced vineyards, and pretty wine towns. Take a boat ride in Venice along the Giudecca Canal to St. Mark’s Square, allowing you to admire the palazzos and maze of streets. While in Venice, enjoy watching glassblowers create their works as they have done for centuries.

Spend one night in the Lucerne area, one of Switzerland’s finest cities, situated on the shores of breathtaking Lake Lucerne and nestled within the snowcapped Swiss Alps. Here, visit the Old Town, with its famous Chapel Bridge. Stop in romantic Verona, the Italian city made famous by Romeo and Juliet; enjoy an orientation drive in Brussels; and see the most famous sights in Paris—including the Arc de Triomphe and Eiffel Tower— on the guided sightseeing tour. On the way back to the UK from Paris, experience an engineering marvel by crossing the Channel Tunnel by Eurostar train to London for an additional overnight.

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!
