The well-known highlights of Europe are popular for a very good reason. Join us on a Europe tour that unashamedly takes in some of the continent’s most classic cities as well as some of its best natural charm. Along the way we’ll delve into the history of timeless cities like Rome and Paris, view Renaissance art in Florence and get caught up in the glamour of the Riviera. But that’s just the start! We’ll also be seduced by rural Italy and France, bask in the sun in Barcelona and be awed by the majestic Swiss Alps. This trip? It’s a classic.
