Keep your eyes off the road and on the epic landscapes of the Rhine, Tuscany and the French Riviera as you journey from Amsterdam to all the main highlights of Europe. Explore Venice and Paris, encounter centuries of papal history in Rome and Avignon, and cruise down Europe's mightiest river. You won't miss a thing on this jaunt across Europe with new friends.
Day 1 - Arrive Amsterdam (1 Night)
Welcome to the Netherlands. Its historic, yet edgy capital, oozes gezelligheid with its leafy canals and gabled 17th-century façades. Enjoy an orientation before boarding an optional canal cruise in a glass-topped boat. This Optional Experience is a mesmerising way to see this old-world capital and its iconic sights.
Accommodation: Ibis Schiphol
Day 2 - Amsterdam – Rhine Cruise – Rhineland (1 Night)
Keep your cameras at the ready as you head east into the lush landscapes of Germany. You'd be forgiven for wanting to jump ship and stay forever as you cruise down the Rhine River, passing medieval villages on its shores, steep vineyards and storybook castles. The Rhine Valley has enchanted painters and writers for centuries. See it in all its glory as you board a leisurely river cruise, winding your way through romantic Rhineland landscapes.
Accommodation: Achat Plaza Karlsruhe
Day 3 - Rhineland – Lucerne Region (1 Night)
Slice through the heart of Switzerland bound for Lucerne on your very own 'Grand Tour' of Europe. Take a step back in time when you join your Travel Director for an orientation tour, exploring the Old Town, the ancient wooden Chapel Bridge and Lion Monument. The mournful, mortally wounded lion hewn from rock commemorates the sacrifice made by the Swiss Guard who died defending Louis XVI during the French Revolution. You'll have some time to explore the city your way, perhaps with some retail therapy. You could choose to ascend to the alpine heavens instead, joining an optional scenic cruise across Lake Lucerne to Stans, then travelling by railway and cable car up into the mountains for exhilarating mountain views.
Accommodation: Krone Giswil
Day 4 - Lucerne Region – Venice (2 Nights)
Touch the sky when you follow the St. Gotthard highway, winding past epic mountain scenery south to Chiasso, on the border of Italy. Cross the border and continue past Italy's enchanting Lake District and the Veneto Plains to the Queen of the Adriatic, Venice. You'll have some time to explore on your own or perhaps admire the beauty of Venice from its labyrinthine network of canals. Join an Optional Experience cruise by private water taxi along Venice's Grand Canal and board a gondola, watching life unfold along the city's narrow calle and enchanting waterways.
Day 5 - Venice Orientation and Free Time
Watch talented master craftsmen at work engaged in the same craft as their ancestors from centuries ago when you visit Giudecca Island. Witness them crafting the beautiful glass creations that are characteristic of Venice. Then cruise by private launch to St. Mark's Square. All the main attractions are within walking distance of the Piazza so you'll have easy access to view the Byzantine Basilica of St. Mark. Spend your time getting lost in the calle of Venice or consider taking an optional cruise across the lagoon to colourful Burano Island.
Day 6 - Venice – Rome (2 Nights)
The 'Eternal City' beckons as you cross the Apennines through Tuscany to Rome. There's time for a leisurely stroll to one of the city's thronging piazze to people watch or consider joining an optional sightseeing tour of Rome. Embrace life lived the Italian way - to the fullest.
Day 7 - Rome Sightseeing and Free Time
There's no better way to see Rome than to dive right in. Consider an Optional Experience that will reveal the artistry and heritage of the famous Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums. Meet your Local Specialist later for a sightseeing tour that begins in Vatican City. The dome of St. Peter's Basilica looms over the expansive St. Peter's Square - the impressive backdrop for time spent learning about the world's smallest country. See Michelangelo's mournful Pietà up close then continue to Ancient Rome, to view the mighty Colosseum, followed by some time to explore on your own. Consider joining an optional light-hearted evening meal revealing all the flavours that would make any Italian mamma proud.
Day 8 - Rome – Florence (1 Night)
Set your sights firmly on Florence, the birthplace of the Renaissance and a city that has inspired poets, authors and artists for centuries. There are few cities in the world with an artistic legacy equal to that of Florence. Now's your chance to experience it in all its glory. Head to Piazzale Michelangelo and see Florence's signature skyline, then spend your time exploring the city, from the Baptistery and Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore to Giotto's Bell Tower and Ponte Vecchio. You could choose to delve into Florence's Renaissance heritage, visiting Santa Croce church and the political centre of Florence. Spend your evening in the Tuscan hills, joining an Optional Experience dinner.
Accommodation: Wall Art
Day 9 - Florence – Pisa – Monaco – French Riviera (2 Nights)
Don't resist peer pressure and snap a few strategic photos featuring you and the extraordinary Leaning Tower of Pisa. Admire Pisa's Romanesque Square of Miracles in all its striped marble glory. Its structures are said to symbolise the three main stages of human life - the Baptistery (birth), the Cathedral (life) and the Camposanto (death). Head south to the stylish shores of Monaco. Keep your cameras at the ready as you drive along its elegant boulevards and attempt to capture the sophistication that seems to ooze from every corner. Next stop, the glamorous French Riviera.
Accommodation: Zenitude Le Cannet
Day 10 - French Riviera Free Time
What a treat! You have a full free day to do as you wish on the French Riviera. There's no shame in spending the day sprawled out on a sun lounger with a cocktail, but if you can pull yourself away from the pool, you may choose to join your fellow travellers for an optional exploration of Saint-Paul-de-Vence. Life is rather idyllic in this enchanting walled hill-town and, like some of its famous residents, you'll want to linger here a little longer. You never know who you might spot seated in those sleek Ferraris and private yachts that dot the French Riviera.
Day 11 - French Riviera – Avignon – Lyon (1 Night)
Stop in the heart of Provence and the city of Avignon. A brief brush with the Papacy in the 14th century has gifted Avignon with one of the world's most incredible religious architectural legacies. While it may no longer hold the importance that the Vatican does today, views of its Palace of the Popes and St. Bénezet Bridge are no less inspiring. Later today you'll arrive in Lyon. Get your bearings during your orientation tour.
Accommodation: Campanile Berges du Rhone
Day 12 - Lyon – Versailles – Paris (2 Nights)
Maybe, join a Local Specialist today to explore the opulent Palace of Versailles on an Optional Experience. Its splendour and beauty was created to reflect the self-proclaimed majesty of King Louis XIV, the Sun King. See the exquisite sprawling gardens, the Hall of Mirrors with its impressive chandeliers and glinting mirrors. Carry on to Paris later to enjoy the city by night.
Accommodation: Mercure Ivry Quai de Seine
Day 13 - Paris Sightseeing and Free Time
The Parisians know a thing or two about beauty, elegance and a life well lived which your full day in Paris will deliver in abundance. During a sightseeing tour with your Travel Director, you will see the Arc de Triomphe, Champs Élysées and Eiffel Tower. Then spend the rest of the day discovering the city on your terms. Don't resist the urge to tread in the footsteps of Picasso and Dali during an optional visit to Montmartre this afternoon, exploring its maze of streets and Artist's Square. There's time to shop for artwork and savour some local specialties before a real highlight this evening - an optional dinner and cabaret performance.

Hygiene and Safety Protocols for Costsaver Tours
Costsaver has introduced these enhanced hygiene protocols – for you and team members.
Costsaver asks that you please take personal responsibility for your wellbeing. This begins with packing any personal protective equipment and sanitizers you require. Please adopt physical distancing and hygiene practises throughout your pre-trip travel arrangements and follow all health instruction whether physical signage, or requests from the professional staff once you are vacationing.Expertly Trained Travel Directors
Travel Director training equips them with enhanced hygiene and physical distancing procedures. During your trip, they will operate with a duty of care and monitor the hygiene etiquette of the guests, reacting and advising as needed, to ensure high standards are maintained. Before you travel, Costsaver will also keep you well informed about new protocols required in these areas, and ask that you cooperate with and heed the advice and direction of Travel Directors while on your trip. The Travel Directors have preventative measures in place to try and ensure your well-being and in the event that any unexpected issues arise on trip, they will activate additional protocols.Stringent On-the-Road Protocols
The customized luxury coaches are sanitised before the start of your trip and have always been kept to very high standards. Following the outbreak of COVID-19, Costsaver have taken additional measures to elevate hygiene and sanitary practices in accordance with guidance from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and as required, applicable government regulations. The Driver training provides them with the latest hygiene protocols. They will clean and disinfect all surfaces including handrails, door handles, tables, seats, air-conditioning filters and overhead lockers on a daily basis. All the guests are asked to follow hygiene practices recommended by the World Health Organisation including the thorough and regular washing of hands and sanitising when required. Hand sanitiser is freely available on board for your use throughout the day. Please bring your own washable face mask and gloves with you, and additional hand sanitiser to make you feel comfortable, as these will be required to be worn in public in some countries. Should an unexpected situation arise, additional face masks, rubber gloves, antiviral sprays and wipes will be available for guest distribution on all trips.A Full Team of Support 24/7
It’s not just your Travel Director and Driver who will be taking care of you. Behind the scenes, the operations and guest support teams are in contact with them and on call 24/7, so you can rest assured that you’re in good hands.Physical Distancing
Adapting to the right size groups, based on government distancing requirements, you can rest assured that you will travel with the comfort of your own personal space. Have peace of mind that all of the experiences, hotels and restaurants you’ll enjoy on your trip have been vetted to ensure they adhere to physical distancing and hygiene guidelines.Trusted Partners, Exceptional Standards
Costsaver is very selective in who they work with and choose to only use hotels, restaurants, ground handlers and venues that take the well-being of the guests as seriously as Costsaver does and agrees to meet expected guidelines and specifications. Costsaver only works with establishments that they are confident will consistently adhere to their high standards.Always in the Know
As part of The Travel Corporation (TTC) , Costsaver is kept up to date with all government advisories and travel alerts on a daily basis and is continually in touch with all of the partners on the ground in each destination. Also, rest assured that during your trip, the teams work to ensure the supplier partners (hotels, restaurants, museums and other venues) are also applying the same standard to these new hygiene and distancing protocols, to the extent possible.

Hotels were even better than expectrd. We saw do many and wonderful attractions.
The trip itinerary was very detailed. From the booking to the end of my trip I was totally satisfied. It was my second trip, but I think I will book my future trips again. The trip director and all local guides were very knowledgeable and had great sense of humor, never boring. The optional excursions were excellent.
If people would ask me if I got my money's worth, I would reply that I got much much more than my money's worth. My trip was beyond wonderful, beyond amazing, beyond breathtaking.... Trent Plaine gave great background history of every country we visited; he took us to places morning noon and night... if there were places on the way out of a country he'd have us visit them and stop for great views. He was knowledgeable on flavors, food... the road trip was fantabulous!
The trip was well organized,the director Annarika is excellent in all aspects .our driver Marco is excellent too.They are both highly recommended in the fields they chose.In my next travel I wish I will be with them again.
Another excellent trip from start to finish. I am looking forward to my next trip already!!
We had a great experience with this company on this tour and would recommend this trip to anyone.
This was my first Costsaver tour and it was amazing. Our consultant, Maureen and tour guide Rose were top notch, extremely knowledgeable, and true professionals. I will definitely use Costsaver again!
Novotel Hotel was disappointing.
The trip to Italy was beyond my expectations! Our tour guide Amedeus was knowledgeable, kind, intuitive and made sure each one of us felt like royalty!
Our tour director Gianmarco was enthusiastic, informative and engaging. If I could pick him as my personal tour director to with me as I travel the world I would. The locations and sites were awe inspiring, but Gianmarco made this a very memorable experience. One I will cherish for a long time.
This was my 6th trip with Costsaver/Trafalgar, and I look forward to my next.
