More Information

DAY 1 Rome, Italy

Rome is where the heart is. Gawk at the Colosseum, get your heart pumping with a race up the Spanish Steps and throw a coin in the famous Trevi Fountain. If your energy levels keep up, window shop along Via Condotti or simply mix with the locals before you meet with the gang in the afternoon. Espresso stops: mandatory.

DAY 2 Rome to Venice

After channeling your inner romantic at Juliet’s wall of love notes in Verona, we’re off to oh-so-pretty Venice. Get ready to experience one of those ultimate bucket list destinations. Venice is as good as everyone says it is, trust us.

DAY 3 Venice

100+ slowly sinking islands won't explore themselves. Get your bearings on this morning's walking tour before an action packed day. Soak up St Mark's Square and opt in for a quintessential gondola ride on the Grand Canal (optional activity). Corny smooching not included. This afternoon, check out the Doge's Palace, cross Rialto Bridge and shop for Carnevale masks. Did we mention how beautiful it is here?

DAY 4 Venice to Swiss Alps, Switzerland

Off to the Alps, where the air is crisp, the views are storybook-worthy and fondue is totally acceptable at any time of day. Once you’ve settled in, get cosy in one of the cafés that line the main street and treat yourself to a hot chocolate and a spot of alpine-themed daydreaming.

DAY 5 Swiss Alps

Ski, sled, snow angel, or park yourself indoors to enjoy the views (from the warmth). Craving more altitude? Head to the awe-inspiring ‘Top of Europe’, aka Jungfrau, on an optional rail adventure and test your pano skills. With so much to get involved with today, the question is, where to start?

DAY 6 Swiss Alps to Luxembourg City, Luxembourg

Welcome to Luxembourg, where the country’s wealth is strong and its wine consumption is stronger. (Read: the good life). Notice the contrast between the capital city’s historic and modern-day architecture before delving into the many restaurants, museums and galleries on offer. Let’s do this.

DAY 7 Luxembourg City to Amsterdam, Netherlands

Say hello to one of Europe’s most picturesque cities, where views of canal-lined houses and bridges are everywhere you look. From the infamous Red Light District to Amsterdam’s bustling squares lined with foodie options, this city is like a real-life postcard.

DAY 8 Amsterdam

Get on your bike and ride! Do as the locals do and join the 881,000 bicycles on an optional city bike tour to soak up the wintery canal vistas before retreating with hot chocolate, poffertjes and stroopwafels. Take on one of the city's 51 museums (must-dos: Van Gogh Museum and the Anne Frank House). Still thirsty for more? Check out the Heineken Experience for an interactive visit and tasting at the brewery. Top it off with a dinner cruise on the canal.

DAY 9 Amsterdam to London, England

Today it's back on the ferry as we journey back to London. Start planning the next adventure. Facebook friends?
