Then there's plenty of time to lust over haute couture you can't afford, admire the Notre Dame Cathedral whilst juggling coffee and crêpes, & get artsy at the many museums of the Louvre.

We'll sail over the Tyrrhenian Sea taking in the glorious waters and majestic beauty of coastal Italy. Once on Isle of Capri, you can roam the hillside town of Anacapri, sip too many cups of coffee, and marvel at how the cliffs meet the sea."So so so so in love with Sorrento" are about the only words you'll muster up today as you sit seaside in the #InstaFamous town of beauty. Back on the mainland we will toast our time in Italy and begin discussing our fanciful ideas about what Greece has in store.

  15. Day 15
    Overnight Adriatic Ferry to Athens via Corinth Canal
    Bounce out of your ocean bed- we're pulling up in Greece!The awe of Greece's mainland will begin shortly after our arrival as we catch a glimpse of Corinth Canal. This manmade passageway squeezes boats through its 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 traditional Greek food with an optional dinner and then make the most of the night with your friends in this ancient city.Accommodation: President Hotel (or similar)
    Meals:   Breakfast
  16. Day 16
    Athens to Mykonos
    Yes, yes, you're hearing the call of cocktails on Mykonos Island. But let's get acquainted with Athens for a day before we set sail. This city is a time capsule of life on earth. We'll see the first modern Olympic Stadium & take a guided tour of Athens & the Acropolis. Then we head to the seaside. Eeep!!!Jetsetters and backpackers alike are drawn to this pristine, has-it-all island. Enjoy the breathtaking views of our Aegean cruise before we dock in Mykonos where we will be kicking it for 4 whole nights.Accommodation: Paradise Beach Resort (or similar)
    Meals:   Breakfast   Dinner
  17. Day 17
    Mykonos

    Meals:   Breakfast   Dinner
  18. Day 18
    Mykonos
    Remember when you first looked at our itinerary and wondered if 4-nights in Mykonos would be too much? LOL! What a joke those feels are now. We all wish our stay in Mykonos would last for 3 months. Do any sightseeing you've forgotten to do (because, beach hangs) or give yourself a day to relax if you've been giving it a nudge since we first arrived. Tomorrow we have another Greek port of paradise to fall in love with.Accommodation: Paradise Beach Resort (or similar)
    Meals:   Breakfast
  19. Day 19
    Mykonos
    Sleeping all day because you danced all night is not an option. Well, technically it is. But wasting a day of glorious sunshine on the island of Mykonos won't be the best decision you've ever made. Saganaki pan fried cheese and a dip in the ocean should bring you back to life. Perhaps even get traditional with a glass of ouzo?Accommodation: Paradise Beach Resort (or similar)
    Meals:   Breakfast
  20. Day 20
    Mykonos to Preveza
    Back out on the Aegean a sea breeze will wipe stupidly happy looks on our faces. That's correct, it's possible to be happy when leaving Mykonos. But only when you have another 2-weeks of exploring Euope sitting ahead of you.Back on the mainland we find ourselves taking a journey across the Peloponnese in search of the friendly fishing village of Preveza. Here we will relish in our final Greek evening before we take to the Adriatic coastline for more mind-blowing European beauties.Accommodation: Maragarona Hotel (or similar)
    Meals:   Breakfast   Dinner
  21. Day 21
    Preveza to Tirana
    Pack your bags and grab your last Greek breakfast feast. This morning we're hitting a very pretty road and heading to Albania!After a weave along the dramatic Adriatic Coast we find Albania’s colourful capital. Congratulations, wander folk! You are ticking off Tirana at precisely the right time. Rapidly changing and slowly being recognised for its unique blend - a Communist, Italian and Ottoman heritage with a foot stepped firmly in the modern world. And not yet overrun by tourists, you can explore with a bit of space at your side.Accommodation: AS Tirana Hotel (or similar)
    Meals:   Breakfast
  22. Day 22
    Tirana to Dubrovnik via Budva
    Obscure off the beaten track capitals one day, trusted favourite cities the next. Such is the beauty of a see it all trip! Goodbye Tirana, we have Dubrovnik on top of the deck.We're making a stop in this coastal heaven before Dubrovnik. A 2,500 year old town famous for its beautiful beaches and its cobbled stone roads. A coffee maybe before we make our way to Dubrovnik?...we make our way to Croatia.The spectacular seaside fortress town of Dubrovnik, also known as the “Pearl of the Adriatic”, is yours to explore for the evening - not forgetting it has an enviable party scene.Accommodation: Hotel Adria (or similar)
    Meals:   Breakfast
  23. Day 23
    Dubrovnik
    The city of Dubrovnik is so much more than just a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a Game of Thrones location - not that either of those claims to fame are even mildly mediocre. After you've been guided around the city with intricate detail you'll be armed with the knowledge to pick out a waterside rock bar where you can swim and indulge 'til your heart's content. If that's not enough, a boat cruise and some island hoping can be dished up for your afternoon pleasure.Accommodation: Hotel Adria (or similar)
    Meals:   Breakfast
  24. Day 24
    Dubrovnik to Zadar
    Saying goodbye to Dubrovnik isn't too tough this morning given we're heading to Zadar and taking the scenic route past crystal clear waters and the scattering of green islands that make up the Dalmatian Coast. Many whimsical thoughts coming right up.With quick cruise through Bosnia & Herzegonvina, it's on to the next stop.We can't tease you the whole way to Zadar - a stunning stop off in Split is 100% necessary. Wander through the domain of Diocletian’s Palace in the city centre, gob-smacked by the sheer talent of those way back when Romans. 220 buildings and a huge cathedral will be enough to make your head spin.Medieval churches and marble streets mark our evening in Zadar. Take a dip by the steps of the manmade masterpiece of Sea Organ, or head out to enjoy the buzzing nightlife of this student town bursting with bars and cafés.Accommodation: Porto Hotel (or similar)
    Meals:   Breakfast
  25. Day 25
    Zadar to Vienna
    Today Croatia becomes but a beautiful memory as we leave Zadar and head towards Austria. The journey will be prettied by Paklenica National Park and the stunning countryside of Slovenia.Austria, we have arrived! Strudel town, we are ready! Though given tomorrow's day is jam-packed with everything that's so wonderful about Vienna ,you may wish to lay low tonight and save yourself for what sits ahead.Accommodation: Ibis Wien Mariahilf Hotel (or similar)
    Meals:   Breakfast
  26. Day 26
    Vienna
    A whole day lies ahead to uncover the ethereal Austrian capital. Our Trip Manager will uncover the historical heritage of Schönbrunn Palace, the State Opera House and the gothic St. Stephen’s Cathedral.

A Mozart and Strauss concert will prove the perfect introduction for those feeling cultured and curious.Accommodation: Ibis Wien Mariahilf Hotel (or similar)
    Meals:   Breakfast
  27. Day 27
    Vienna to Munich via Mauthausen
    Vielen dank, Vienna! We are officially in love with everything you are. We'd stay for another strudel but we've heard about the beer culture in Munich and we're a little bit intrigued...Before we arrive in mighty Munich, we make a sobering stop at Mauthausen Concentration Camp memorial to remember Germany's turbulent past.Even when Oktoberfest isn't in full swing, Munich is a treasure trove of Bavarian cultural experiences. 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.Accommodation: NH Munich Ost (or similar)
    Meals:   Breakfast
  28. Day 28
    Munich to Lucerne via Lichtenstein
    Although we're checking out of Munich today, this is not the last Germany has seen of us. We will reunite with this fine country after a gratifying stint in the mountains of Switzerland.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 Switzerland.Swans float under wooden bridges, snowcapped mountains stand regally behind us, & chocolate tastes like heaven on earth. You're in the Swiss Alps & you cannot wipe the smile off your face. Eeek!!! Don't forget to take your squeals to the next level with an excursion to the heights of Mt. Pilatus.Accommodation: Ibis Budget Hotel Luzern City (or similar)
    Meals:   Breakfast
  29. Day 29
    Lucerne
    There's no reason why today can't be wasted strolling these beautiful streets or sitting in a coffee shop pondering mountain life. And consuming chocolate - that's perfectly acceptable too. However! Those wanting to spice up their day can take an optional river cruise, sign up for a Stadtkeller lunch and admire the Lion Monument and Wooden Chapel Bridge. Spoilt for choice much?Accommodation: Ibis Budget Hotel Luzern City (or similar)
    Meals:   Breakfast
  30. Day 30
    Lucerne to Rhine Valley
    Out with the altitude, in with the brand new country.

Health and Safety Protocols for Contiki Tours

Contiki has introduced these enhanced hygiene protocols – for you and team members.

You can travel with Contiki and be assured that their team has put numerous new measures in place to elevate their hygiene standards and protocols. The well-being of guests and team has always been, and always will be, their primary concern.

In this new, fast changing Covid-19 era, Contiki is doing all they can to adapt to new requirements and expectations. Here are some important new steps and procedures that they have implemented to enhance hygiene protocols, to comply with physical distancing requirements by relevant government authorities and to give you the peace of mind when you are traveling during these new times.

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, Contiki 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, Contiki 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

Contiki 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 Contiki does and agrees to meet expected guidelines and specifications. Contiki 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) , Contiki 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.

Questions & Answers

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.

Prepare to spend more than usual on a Contiki tour.

We were lucky that the group of people with were good, but it was a large group tour and did have some of the downfalls of a trip of that nature, like frequent breaks for the bathroom, difficulty when eating out together, and getting things on and off the coach. The trip was still great and a good value for the money.

It was a good value and the experiences included were worth it. The only part that wasn't the best were the accommodations as it was hit and miss. Half of the hotels on the trip were okay, and the other half were really nice.
