  9. Day 1
    Rome to Venice
    Meet your Contiki crew and get to know your fellow travellers as we’re off over the Appenine Mountains, stopping in Romeo and Juliet’s home of Verona en route to Venice.

    Day 2
    Venice
    Venice is packed with character - crammed with hidden lanes and linked by a network of canals.

    The group travels on our private boat through the waters of the lagoon to visit the city’s historical heart. The limestone Bridge of Sighs, the Gothic arches of the Doge's Palace and the expanse of St. Mark’s Square (pigeons and all!) show off Venice’s unique beauty and way of life.

    Take some time to explore the floating city and lose yourself in the backstreets. There’s an optional walking tour where you can discover the labyrinth of interweaving lanes, waterways, palaces, piazzi and markets with our Local Guide. You’ll see historic monuments, hidden treasures and the Rialto market - a local favourite for food shopping.

    Maybe grab a table on St. Mark’s Square and eat some delicious Italian food al fresco.

    Cap off the day with an optional gondola ride & share this amazing experience with your friends - seeing Venice from on the water is unforgettable!

    Day 3
    Venice to Salzburg
    Travel through the stunning Austrian countryside to the picture perfect Salzburg. Home to Mozart and The Sound of Music

    Day 4
    Salzburg to Prague
    Head north to Prague, the 'City of a Thousand Spires'.

    Then we head over the border and into the Czech Republic to Prague. Prague is a beautiful and atmospheric city. It’s also pretty compact, so it’s best explored on foot. Get straight into Prague’s historic heart with your Trip Manager. You’ll walk together over the landmark Charles Bridge, through Hradčany Castle, the home of the original Bohemian Kings and to the gothic St. Vitus Cathedral along the way.

    Day 5
    Prague
    More free time means you can get deeper into Prague’s Old Town in your own time. The city itself is a UNESCO World Heritage site, with a jumble of little lanes, alleys and courtyards. Slow the pace down and give yourself a chance to uncover its hidden treasures. This is also the spot to pick up some famous Bohemian glass, beads or garnet and amber jewellery.

    Choose a river cruise on the Vltava, which runs through the heart of Prague, and take in stunning views of the city from the water. The Czech capital has a really mixed past so look out for signs of the Holy Roman Empire, the Bohemian Empire, the Nazis and the Communists.


    By night, Prague is loaded with all types of music, from jazz bars and hip DJs to opera. There is something for everyone, so make the most of it with the group.

    Day 6
    Prague to Berlin
    Heading north, we head over the border and into Germany to the region of Dresden, often dubbed 'Florence of the North' because of its beauty. Then we'll roll in to historical & hipster Berlin.

    Day 7
    Berlin
    This morning, why not join a local guide for a tour? Learn about the East/West split at the Berlin Wall and check out the controversial Reichstag (German Parliament) as well as Tiergarten (one the world’s biggest parks). You'll also visit Checkpoint Charlie, where many East Berliners tried to escape to the West, and be reminded of Germany’s darker past at the Brandenburg Gate.

    With free time, get inspired by Berlin’s creative scene and check out its galleries and street art. As a world forerunner in contemporary art, Berlin’s walls are covered in cutouts and graffiti.

    Shopping-wise, this town has it all and is right up there defining style. Berlin is great for small boutiques, funky fashions and one-of-a-kind buys. Your Trip Manager knows Berlin’s ins and outs, so get some pointers before you splurge.

    Do as the Berliners do and grab a currywurst (a local favourite) and kick back at a Bierkeller (German beer house).

    Top off your time in Berlin with some of your new friends and explore the city’s legendary nightlife. With cool cocktail bars and some of the best techno clubs in the world, there are heaps of fun choices.

    Day 8
    Berlin to Amsterdam
    Motor down the autobahn and get ready for a dose of Amsterdam. Check out Amsterdam’s eye-opening Red Light District, where the creative and wacky come together on narrow cobbled streets, 24/7.


    Day 9
    Amsterdam
    Cruise out into the countryside to see how clogs are made and try some famous Dutch Edam at a cheese farm, before it's back to the city to explore the canals, parks & cool vibes that the 'Dam' is known for.
