Itinerary / more information

  • Day 1 Welcome, travellers! After meeting some new found friends we'll head from Croatia to Slovenia, where we'll enjoy dinner in this beautiful jewel of the East. This gorgeous and seriously underrated city fringes the emerald Ljubljanka River, and is filled with hip cafes and leafy plazas. We'll waste no time getting stuck into the local cuisine while bonding with our Contiki fam with a tasty included dinner.
  • Day 2 Ever the advocates of a balanced holiday, today we're trading in the obscure unknown for the globally adored hot spot of Venice. Whoop! Yes, it's as cute as you imagined. Yes, you'll feel like you're part of an Italian fairytale. Yes, you are actually hanging out in the gondola filled floating city of Venice! A private boat ride, gothic architecture and a web of lanes to explore will keep your day filled quite nicely.
  • Day 3 We have a few days left - Switzerland & France, we're coming for both of you. Passing Lake Como, we cruise out of Italy and find ourselves in Switzerland, pulling up in the fairytale town of Lucerne, famous for its wooden bridges, cobbled lanes and beautiful setting against Lake Lucerne. And chocolate. Don't forget to eat ALL the chocolate.
  • Day 4 There's no reason why today can't be wasted strolling these beautiful streets or sitting in a coffee shop pondering mountain life, and consuming more chocolate - that's perfectly acceptable too. Those wanting to spice up their day can visit the top of a Swiss Mountain and enjoy a lake cruise, giving yourself a better look at the stunning Swiss Alps reflected off the water. Spoilt for choice much?
  • Day 5 Out with the altitude, in with the inner-city Parisian bliss. Once we've crossed the border out of Switzerland we will be coasting through the pretty wine producing region of Burgundy before our arrival in Paris. Ah, we've finally arrived in the city of love! So, of course, we're starting with a gorgeous French dinner. Afterwards, you're free to do what you please. Enjoy a glass of fine wine, explore trendy fashion, or even soak in iconic sights! Finally, we'll end the night with jaw-dropping city views from the Montparnasse Tower.*Heads up, our Paris plans might shift during the Summer Olympics due to city restrictions, impacting our Illuminations Tour of the city along with other possible disruptions. We're on it, crafting alternative experiences for your safety and enjoyment. Your understanding means the world to us!
  • Day 6 Today's the day to stroll the beautiful streets of Paris - and we'll start with a visit to an authentic French perfumery to learn all the secrets of the trade. Then there's plenty of time to lust over designer haute couture or French vintage stores, admire the Notre Dame Cathedral, order coffee and crepes, or get artsy at the many museums of the Louvre. Just don't wear yourself out, because tonight's your chance to get involved with VIP seats, dinner & French champagne at an iconic Parisian cabaret show. With your last night looming, this is the perfect way to make it one to remember. Get ready to go out with a bang!
  • Day 7 Soak up your last dose of Paris and feel the astonishment of how much you've seen during this awesome trip, not to mention how close you've grown to your Contiki pals. What a journey! On arrival in London say a fond farewell to the group - the adventure has come to an end.
