The European Emperor 2017 tour starts in London and ends in Rome . The European Emperor 2017 is a Explorer tour that takes 15 days taking you from London to Rome and 9 other destinations. The European Emperor 2017 includes trip leader, accommodation, meals, transport and some activities. Please see the Includes section for details.

The Roman Empire spread from its centre in Rome to conquer large swathes of the known world. Parts of France, Spain and Switzerland were all subject to the rule of Rome. Its influence even spread as far as England. Now you can enjoy the reverse journey, as we make our way from London to Rome via some of the finest cities, landscapes and countries that Western Europe has to offer. With the included services on this Europe trip you’ll feel every bit the emperor as we journey through your domain!
Day 1 London, England to Paris, France

All good things start with Paris. Meet the crew, grab some supplies and hit the road early in the morning as we jump across to Paris. Pinch yourself and instagram your first selfie before we kick off the trip with a guided tour with your Trip Leader (aka living guide book). Food matters. A lot. In Europe, it comes alive. Complete your foodie mission with a picnic under the Eiffel Tower and watch Paris sparkle for your first ‘wow’ moment.

More oh la la today. With Parisian charm crammed into every nook and cranny, make sure you hit all of the iconic haunts. This morning: free time en Francais. From the Louvre and Musée d'Orsay to the l'Arc de Triomphe and Champs Elysées, you'll be sure to make a solid dent in your bucket list.

Day 3 Paris to Bordeaux

If you haven’t gone fromage crazy just yet, grab a few wheels before we go and bid au revoir to Paree. Next, we make a quick stop in the heart of the Loire Valley. Later, watch the world go by and grab a window seat as we head to Bordeaux to become masters of the grape in the red wine capital.

Day 4 Bordeaux to Carcassonne

Wake up and learn the A to Z of wine before we move on from Bordeaux. Head off to the historic walled city for a real-life game of Carcassonne (you know the one) and to see why it is famed for its restored medieval fortress and the poetic sonnets written about it.

Meals:
-Breakfast

Day 5 Carcassonne to Barcelona, Spain via Andorra

Roll through the Pyrenees today with a quick stop in Andorra on our way to tapas town.

Day 6 Barcelona

If you think you’ve eaten it all, nah-ah not even close. Uncover the food market gems scattered across Barcelona and satisfy your inner gastronome. Try: La Boqueria in Barcelona for a luxe open air experience. Who needs the snooze button when you got a whole day in a city packed to the rafters with art nouveau, alluring accents and most importantly, tapas. Hit the side streets and rumble along the Las Ramblas, take in the eccentric work of artist Antoni Gaudi at Parc Guell or give in to your inner football tragic and kneel to the sporting gods at Camp Nou. Tonight: shall we dance? Optional flamenco show.

Bring your paparazzi posse to the beach or let loose among the designer boutiques in Nice's Old Town.

Included today:
-Guided tour of Monaco City

Meals:
-Breakfast

Day 9 French Riviera to Swiss Alps, Switzerland

The view out your window today plays like a documentary on 'world's sexiest views'. Unlike Toblerone, the Swiss Alps aren't all lined up perfectly so we weave up through the sexy valleys and handsome peaks. Grab your forks and prepare to chow down on Swiss cuisine then hit the bar for a nightcap.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner

Day 10 Swiss Alps

Laid-back, Alpine village living on the cards. Take in the mountain air by foot, bike or goat (if you can get them to stand still long enough). With the potential offered by these mountains, dinner will be calorie neutral. If you get a second wind, jump on the revolving gondola to the top of Mt Titlis and test your pano photo skills. Then head back down for some snow angels and hot chocolate. #hardlife.

Meals:
-Breakfast

Optional Activities:
-Mount Titlis excursion
-High Ropes course

Day 11 Swiss Alps to Venice, Italy

Roll on down to Venice, but first, squeeze a visit to Verona. Then, Venice - you know it as the floating city, but this place is actually sinking (slowly). Check out St. Mark's Square, Accademia Bridge and a who's who of Venice's usual suspects.

Included today:
-Walking tour of Verona

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner

Day 12 Venice

Get your bearings, then get hopelessly lost. Your GPS won't save you here. Soak up St Mark's Square before a quintessential gondola ride on the Grand Canal. Corny smooching not included. This afternoon, snoop the Doge's Palace, cross Rialto Bridge and shop for Carnevale masks.

Included today:
-Walking tour of Venice
-Vaporetto ride on the Grand Canal
-Gondola ride

Meals:
-Breakfast

Day 13 Venice to Florence

Head over to Florence, but not before we stop for THAT photo at Pisa. Make your food baby sing as we roll into the land of hearty Tuscan cuisine and birthplace of gelato: Florence. Whip around Santa Maria del Fiore before tucking into amore on a plate. Then the evening is yours to stroll along the real-life watercolour of the Arno River, wishing you were a painter.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner

Day 14 Florence to Rome

Enter Rome: Epic cities deserve epic walking tours, naturally. Cross off some red hot ruins, oodles of obelisks and of course, the big ticket sights. Make like Caesar (the emperor, not the salad) and work up a colossus hunger as you pass by the Pantheon, throw your two cents in the Trevi Fountain, sit on the Spanish Steps and visit ancient history's version of the Hunger Games set at the Colosseum. Tonight, you're in Disneyland for foodies. Have fun.

Included today:
-Walking tour of Florence
-Walking tour of Rome

Meals:
-Breakfast

Day 15 Rome including Vatican City visit
