Tour Itinerary

Brush up on your photographic skills - you're going to need them on this jaunt through Rome, Florence, Venice, Paris, London and lesser-known Lucerne with its Lion Monument and Chapel Bridge.

Day 1 - Arrive Rome (2 Nights)
Ciao Roma! Welcome to the 'Eternal City' - once home to gods and goddesses, emperors, senators and slaves. Explore the city's bustling boulevards and labyrinthine lanes before meeting your fellow travellers and Travel Director at a Welcome Reception. This evening, we embark on an orientation drive revealing some of the city's most celebrated sights.
Accommodation: Grand Tiberio
Meals: Welcome Reception

Day 2 - Rome Sightseeing and Free Time
The Holy See takes centre stage today as we join a 'Local Specialist' for a sightseeing tour that will see us visit the 17th-century St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican City and witness Michelangelo's sorrowful Pietà, a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture. We cross the Tiber into Ancient Rome to delve into what was once the largest empire in the world and view such ancient sites as the imposing Colosseum where brave gladiators and slaves duelled to their deaths. Later, enjoy some free time to explore the picturesque piazze of Rome. Sit on the Spanish Steps and shop up a storm on Via Condotti or perhaps join an Optional Experience to see the exquisite frescoed ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 3 - Rome – Florence Sightseeing
We travel north into the vineyard-clad hills of Tuscany and along the Arno River Valley. 'Connect With Locals' in their castle during a 'Be My Guest' lunch, before continuing to Florence, the birthplace of the Renaissance. Learn about the quality and workmanship of one of this city's historic industries at a demonstration of Florentine leathercraft. Then, join a 'Local Specialist' for an enchanting encounter with one of the world's cultural centres, admiring the exquisite architecture and artistry around every turn. View the marble Duomo and Piazza della Signoria, the political hub of Florence before arriving at your hotel.

Day 4 - Florence – Venice
The romantic island city of Venice is our final destination today. We take to San Marco's waters, cruising the canals and admiring views of the imposing St. Mark's Basilica and ornate Doge's Palace. We'll 'Dive Into Culture' next and witness the centuries-old art of Venetian glassblowing before enjoying an afternoon at leisure to explore narrow calle in search of a cosy bacaro where you can enjoy delicious Venetian cuisine washed down with an Aperol Spritz or two. If you have time, venture to the enchanting canal-side setting of St. Mark's Square - the sounds of talented musicians, seagulls and lapping water provide the perfect backdrop for a memorable sunset over the Grand Canal.
Accommodation: Novotel Mestre Castellana
Meals: Breakfast

Day 5 - Venice – Lucerne
We depart Venice, travelling north into the picturesque Italian and Swiss Lake Districts via Como and Lugano. Slicing through the Alps, we arrive in Switzerland and the laid-back lakeside city of Lucerne. The city is perhaps most famous for its solid wooden Chapel Bridge and poignant Lion Monument, a memorial to Swiss Guards. Enjoy an afternoon at leisure, amble through the Old Town or consider joining an Optional Experience and ascend one of the surrounding mountain peaks for panoramic views. Tonight, we stay at one of Trafalgar's 'Stays With Stories' - the Grand Hotel Europe, promising sweeping lake vistas.

This was my second trip with Trafalgar and it was just as amazing as the first. The tour director, Stephen, did a fantastic job of creating an atmosphere of comradarie and fun.

By Minh L on Jun 10, 2019

Overall, the services were good.

By Sangeeta M on May 13, 2019

Trafalgar tours was fantastic. Really enjoyed the trip. The last day in London could have been better and included some additional things. I think it fell short. But the rest of the trip was amazing

By Luis B on Apr 22, 2019

We loved Bernie. He was so knowledgeable, fun, and helped us really navigate each city with his pointers. We did not like the London tour guided portion as we felt it was chaotic and disorganized. We ended up leaving the guided tour and doing things on our own.

By Patricia A on Oct 29, 2018

Eric went always out of his way to find the best tour for us, answer my questions, reply promptly to my calls, and always above and beyond the call of duty. Thank You.

By Diana R on Oct 29, 2018

Miguel was very consistent and professional, I would recommend him to my family and friends

By Michelle S on Oct 29, 2018

Trafalgar was the best!! Our tour guide was wonderful and very knowledgible.

By Prody V on Apr 09, 2018

This was the second time I used Trafalgar, but I enjoyed this trip better than the first one. Bernie, Tour Director, is Great. She's very funny, and very knowledgeable about the areas we are going. She and our Coach Driver, Giovanni really worked together. So well organized and everything is so well planned. Me and my husband really enjoyed our vacation.

By James S on Oct 02, 2017

Our trip with Trafalgar exceeded all of our expectations. First, Affordable Tours was outstanding in helping us plan our trip. Our travel consultant answered every question accurately and timely. She made excellent air reservations for us, and she coordinated our extra day activities. This was a wonderful experience. All hotels were exceptional and all activities and meals were outstanding. Our guide deserves great credit. He worked tirelessly to insure all passengers and baggage were loaded on the bus in an efficient manner. He kept everyone on a tight schedule, and did it compassionately with a touch of humor. I can't say enough about his excellent knowledge of the region and its history. We would love to travel with him again. The value for the price was absolutely outstanding. Thank you Trafalgar for a wonderful experience.

By Luningning A on Sep 25, 2017

Great experience of a lifetime. Our travel consultant at Affordable Tours was tremendously helpful in planning this trip for us. It was more than what I expected of our travel. We enjoyed every moment and the tour director was an amazing person.

By Cindy M on May 02, 2016

We saw a lot on our trip but it was so fast paced that we felt a little more rest time could have been included.

By Carin N on Aug 03, 2015

Our Europe tour guide was excellent! Website should be more clear, however, that all the excursions are extra. We spent an additional $2500 just on being able to attend the excursions. The London portion of the trip was disappointing. It was not guided. We were left at a hotel with our luggage to check in ourselves and other than a 2 hour tour in the morning - it was completely independent. There was one girl available to work with 30+ guests. It was chaos and a horrible way to end our trip. If I had known it was going to be like that, I would not have booked the tour with the London piece, but saved that trip for another date with a different tour operator.
