Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

Forget the flat line flight - the journey from London to Athens needs to be absorbed on land, lapping up the scenery of French vineyards, Swiss Alps, Italian countryside and the energy of the cities in between. Cycle through the charming streets of Munich, see St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican City, & ramp things up with paragliding in Austria if you're feeling game.

Day 1 - Arrive London
Check in to your hotel after 2:00pm and head out into the humming capital of Britain for a sneak peek at what'''s to come. At 4:00pm meet up with your Trip Manager and get to know your fellow travellers.

Day 2 - London to Paris
Welcome to the first day of the best time of your life - we're calling it early! After a few pleasantries in London we'll get the show on the road with Paris in our sights.A few hours in and your jaws are on the floor already. These chalk cliffs that edge the English coastline are known as the White Cliffs of Dover, the first of many natural beauties we'll see on your trip.After we ferry across the English Channel for France we'll arrive in Calais, where we will take in the history of World War I while driving past ancient battlefields in the Valley of the Somme.Kicking off night one, we arrive in none other than the lust-worthy Paris! It's straight down to business with tickets to the observation deck on the Eiffel Tower.

Day 3 - Paris
Fragonard Perfumery now there's a place to check out, and stock up on perfume, obviously. Especially given the greatly discounted prices and authenticity of buying in France. Later you can drool over haute couture you can't afford, admire the Notre Dame Cathedral whilst juggling coffee and cr''pes, & get artsy at the many museums of the Louvre. Just don't wear yourself out, you will probably want to get involved with dinner and the Nouvelle Eve cabaret show.

Day 4 - Paris to Lucerne
Already enjoying the vibes of Europe just 3 days in, we take things up a notch this morning and head to the Swiss Alps.Just when you think France is the most scenic place on Earth, we make a border cross and start traipsing through the lands of Switzerland; comparing the two would be completely inequitable. Let the wonderland of Lucerne truly uncover itself with a cruise over its perfectly glassy lake.

Day 5 - Lucerne to Munich via Liechtenstein
When a cable ride to the summit of a beautiful Swiss mountain starts your day, you know it'''s going to be a good one. After our morning vistas we shall take to the coach for a bit of country hopping. 3 countries in one day - squeal!!!Although just a tiny dot on the map, Liechtenstein is an economically and geographically incredible place, known for its stunning mountain castles. We'll enjoy lunch in its capital, Vaduz, before continuing our journey to Austria.A city famous the world over for its annual beer festival is a city we need to know about. And luckily enough, the Bavarian culture of the beer fest is a year round attraction. After exploring the Old Town and seeing the Glockenspiel & Marienplatz, throw your feet up in a traditional beer hall, downing roasted pork knuckle & a stein of one of Germany'''s 5000 brews.

Day 6 - Munich to Austrian Tyrol via Innsbruck
Before we make a mad dash to lands so sweet they made The Sound of Music we'll take a guided cycle around the streets of Munich, drinking in any last bits of fabulousness that our beer hall antics distracted us from yesterday.After crossing through the Bavarian Alps, its time to head to this famous Olympic town and your jaw will drop at the sight of the famous ski jump, and you'll have a chance to soak up the medieval old town atmosphere for the afternoon, don't forget to try a piece of delicious Austrian strudel and some local schnaps!2-nights at an insanely cute Austrian Gasthof (guest house) are coming right up. Tyrol will prove a haven for both adrenalin junkies and those in need of a bit of RNR in order to stay on form for all the globe trotting we've got coming up.

Day 7 - Austrian Tyrol
Wake up, peel open your curtains, and take in the magnificence of your view...and your life in general. If you're feeling lively you can jump onto a bike tour through green mountains and waterfalls. If you're feeling really lively you can go tandem paragliding. Not so lively? Stroll around and take in the incredible setting; drink endless hot chocolate, go up a mountain in a gondola, carry on sighing with happiness.

Day 8 - Austrian Tyrol to Venice
Good morning, roamers. We could let you sleep all day, but there's some whitewater rafting that needs to be tended to, as well as a floating city in Italy that has our names written all over it. Shall we?You'll think you've seen enough beauty for one day after taking in the Bavarian Alps & Brenner Pass en route to Italy. Relax in Venice tonight knowing we have all day tomorrow to admire canals & explore pretty streets. Just another day in the traveller's life.

Day 9 - Venice
Wake-up sleeping beauties! Venice is yours for the entirety of this glorious Italian day. We'll be jumping aboard our own private boat and hitting the canals en route to the historical heart of the city. A guided walking tour and a gondola ride are up for grabs, or you can always choose to get lost on your own and see where the maze takes you.

Day 10 - Venice to Florence via Pisa
Venice we love you, but we need to see a bit more of this boot to satisfy our hungry wanderlust ways.As if we were going to leg it from Venice to Florence without a sneaky side trip to the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Depriving you of the chance to perfect the holding-up-the-tower shot would be down right criminal.For those of you not familiar with the whole Florence deal, we have two words for you: it's heaven. Potter along the River Arno, be totally Tuscan with a drop of Chianti wine, and take in the beauty of the city and its protruding Duomo Cathedral.

Day 11 - Florence
Today is a perfect balance of guided wisdom and free time to roam. We'll uncover the beautiful art of traditional leather & explore streets bursting with heritage. Take to the local markets, down some gelato & make yourself known for the evening of optional festivities.

Day 12 - Florence to Rome
Farewell Florence - today we have the epicenter of Italy on our horizons. Pizza and piazzas ''' we can't wait.After our drift through the rustic Tuscan hillsides of cypress trees and glowing fields, we'll be back city side in the Italian capital of Rome. The Trevi Fountain, Pantheon & Piazza Navona are just some of the icons we'll be casting our eyes upon before the sun sets.

Day 13 - Rome with Vatican City
Rome wasn't built in a day - so get up and get going early to make the most of this ancient city.When in Rome...take an optional guided tour of the Vatican Museums, including the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter'''s Basilica. Religious or not, the Vatican's Italian Renaissance church will send shivers down your spine. This is also the day to learn a thing or two about the Colosseum & do a bit of your own exploring.Then hit the streets for your own discoveries. Snap pink azaleas by the Colosseum, throw coins in fountains and sip espresso in a pretty street watching Italian life float by.

Day 14 - Rome to Overnight Adriatic Ferry via Pompeii and Bari
The majestic site of Mt. Vesuvius will interlude our trip from Rome to Bari, our ferry port for today's border leap into Greece.Once a totally vibing hang-out of the Romans, Pompeii is now an archaeological site showing remains of what was destroyed by a mountain eruption in the year...wait for it...79AD. The saying "step back in time" is about to take on a whole new meaning.Let your feet walk their last few steps on Italian soil before we hit the seas for an overnight ferry ride en route to Greece.

Day 15 - Overnight Adriatic Ferry to Corfu
The best version of island time? Greek island time. And you'll settle straight into it on the dream scene of Corfu. A heritage listed old town, water sports aplenty & the option to hit the seas again on a cruise - this is a what your first day in Greece will look like.

Day 16 - Corfu
Another day, another chance to get salty & eat a smorgasbord of feta, olives and grapevines stuffed with delectable rice. Our time in Corfu is a great way for everyone to try a bit of Greek dancing - why not give it a go at our Ionian Dinner?

Day 17 - Corfu to Athens via Corinth Canal
Before we lose all sense of reality and morph into sea-soaked island dwellers, we're making tracks to Athens for a dose of city meets history.The awe of Greece's mainland will begin shortly after our arrival as we catch a glimpse of Corinth Canal. This man-made passageway squeezes boats through it's path, sandwiched by two steep cliffs and sitting over gloriously blue ocean.A collage of ancient wonders and modern magnificence, the allure of Athens is hard to dismiss. Choose to sample more traditional Greek food with an optional dinner and then make the most of the final night with your new friends in this ancient city.

Day 18 - Depart Athens
Hugs, tears, and a final batch of reminiscing; it's astounding how close a group can get in just two short weeks, but not before our Local Guide will escort us through the history of the city visiting the Parthenon and the Acropolis, as well as the first modern Olympic Stadium, host of the 1896 Games.

Please Note: This tour is only applicable for 18 to 35 year olds.
