Tour Itinerary

This tour is bursting at the seams with historical cities and spectacular scenery. Spend one night in London, Lucerne, Bergamo, and Venice, and two nights each in Paris and Rome.

Questions & Answers

Question: What time of day do the excursions usually start and end?

Typically both included and optional excursions begin in the morning and continue to the afternoon. Dinner, night-time city orientation drives, and show/entertainment excursions are usually the only activities that happen at night.

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.

Tour guide Pia from Globus was great

My husband and I were extremely happy with our Globus tour! It exceeded our expectations! We look forward to booking another trip with Globus in the future!!

From the beginning I had a contact with Mrs Hue a very helpful person very grateful to her and her professionalism keep up good work, hope to see you soon!!!

It Was a very good experience, i have learned a lot from the trip. Although it Was very fast paced we were able to see the overview of most countries we have Been to. The tour director And driver are all amazing. The dynamics of the whole group Was awesome. We all earned new friends.

Breakfast was not up to previous trips check in late at end of day was not convenient meal in Rome wad not very good my mistake Rome at end was tiring should have been first

I am very happy to have chosen affordable tours and the tours offered are to suit everyone's taste and many to choose from.

Great trip fast-paced very informative already looking into my next tour.

The itinerary was excellent as were the local guides and especially the tour director. Overall, the hotel accommodations did not meet my expectations. The Hilton in London was dirty and they were reluctant to change my room. The last hotel in Rome, Villa Pamphili, had a dank odor. The shower stalls in both Bergamo and Rome had mildew growing in the grout lines. The Lucerne hotel was splendid. With the exception of the last night of the tour, the food choices, and especially the quality, were poor.

Our tour director was amazing!! She went above and beyond all of our expectations!

It was good but it was too much information . I think that it would be better if you offer this package without Florence and Milan and stay two days in Lucerne and London.
