Day 2 Paris

Grab your baguette and go. Run, don’t walk. Home to Coco Chanel, the Eiffel Tower and the Mona Lisa, Paris has more than deserved its reputation as the European capital for all things culture, fashion and food. And you're about to find out why. Hop on an optional bike tour and roll in style, or roam the streets on your own.

Day 3 Paris to Swiss Alps, Switzerland

Fresh air and Swiss vibes today as we roll up into the alps. Fondue awaits! Driving through the Swiss countryside is like watching Monet paint a masterpiece, each mountain on the way to Lauterbrunnen another masterful brushstroke. Thanks, nature. Get your comfort eating pants on for an included dinner.

-Dinner

Day 4 Swiss Alps

Scenic hikes and jaw-dropping views are on today's agenda. Go low key with a mountain walk or hop on board the Jungfraubahn railway for an optional visit to the Jungfrau Mountain summit. Fairytale villages en route, sky-diving out of a helicopter upon arrival (if heights don't scare you). Another local feast awaits your return, regardless of how you make your way back down.

Say ciao to cheeky David and strut along the Ponte Vecchio.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Day 6 Florence to Rome

Enter Rome. Prepare yourself for the ultimate walking tour. 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.

Included today:
-Rome walking tour
-Walking tour of Florence with local guide

Meals:
-Breakfast

Day 7 Rome including Vatican City visit

It wouldn’t be Rome without a visit to the Pope. Catch that 360-degree view from the Basilica (optional). See how Michelangelo messed around and created the High Renaissance, then play eye spy with two-and-a-half millennia’s worth of history. Shop til you drop on Via Condotti, head to Capitoline Hill for sick views of the Roman Forum and Colosseum or just kick back in Piazza Navona for some dolce far niente (delicious idleness). Your Topdeck chef will feed you tonight.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner

Optional activities:
-Vatican City visit

Day 8 Rome to Venice

Hark! Maketh haste to whence the lady Juliet was wooed in Verona. Snap a selfie at her balcony and join throngs of lovers leaving notes in the wall (or avoid the crowds and just marvel at the ancient arena). Say hello to Venice from across the lagoon as we check into our hotel, have an Eat Pray Love-worthy relationship with an irresistible Italian (meal) and get pumped for living out your own version of The Italian Job tomorrow.

Included today:
-Walking tour of Verona

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Lunch
-Dinner

Day 9 Venice

Head into St Mark’s Square, shoo pigeons and jump over the Rialto Bridge to find the best damn pizza. Here, it’s all about the on-foot and getting-lost vibes with maze vibes. You know it as the floating city, but this place is actually sinking (slowly). Throw away your map in the afternoon and try to find the world's most epic little bookshop, Libreria Acqua Alta, or just go on a mission to find the perfect gelato.

-Vaporetto ride on the Grand Canal
