Connect the best cities together in Europe with this all-in-one trip. Have your own Under The Tuscan Sun moment as you feast, take in the soaring pencil pines and attempt to be a very chic Italian (BYO wide brimmed hat and black sunnies). At night douse yourself in glitter in Monaco, get cabs so that you don’t have to wear flats (oh the shame) and always bet on black. All topped off with as much pizza, gelato, strudel, beer, chocolate as your poor stomach can handle.
