Check in to your hotel after 2:00pm and head out into the humming capital of Britain for a sneak peek at what’s to come. At 5:00pm meet up with your Trip Manager and get to know your fellow travellers over dinner.
Tonight, get a feel for this thriving cultural melting pot as you jump on the coach where your Trip Manager tells you all about London’s famous landmarks and UNESCO World Heritage sites in our included city tour. Learn about Big Ben, the Royal Family’s place of residence (Buckingham Palace), the horror tales of the Tower of London, and the magnificent Westminster Abbey, where many Kings and Queens have wed. After being wowed by the bright lights of London, make your way to Leicester Square, where you will have time to soak up the glitz and glamour or maybe even venture down the road from there into Soho and Covent Garden.
With two days in London, there’s plenty of time to get a real feel for this buzzing cosmopolitan capital, where iconic black taxis and red double-decker buses flash past historic buildings. Anything goes in London, so choose how you want to experience it.
With included day passes for the London Underground take advantage of the tube system. Use it like a local and move around the city at your own pace. This morning join the group and your Trip Manager to learn how to use the Tube and head across town to the Tower of London, which you can choose to opt in to go inside and look back in time at London’s epic history, or a visit to the Tate Modern to check out some of the world’s most famous contemporary art. You can rub shoulders with the stars by walking through world-famous Madame Tussauds waxwork museum. Otherwise shop in the colourful Camden Markets or stroll up Oxford Street.
In the evening you'll have the chance to learn about the darker side of London and it's most infamous serial killer, Jack the Ripper. In our Exclusive Inclusion you will visit the sites of these horrific murders, learn about the most popular theories, suspects and more from your very own "ripperologist".
On your second free day in London why not start with a ride on the London Eye to take in the views over the city. Then there is further chance so why not check out areas such as Covent Garden packed full of cool cafes and vibrant street performers.
If you’re keen for something a bit more off the beaten track, ask your Trip Manager for some tips.
On your last night in London experience a bit of London culture with a trip to a famous West End musical – it’s on us! Afterwards, round up some friends and hit the town. London has it all; jazz bars, traditional pubs, pumping clubs and loads of live music - take your pick and dive into the action.
Welcome to the first day of the best time of your life - we're calling it early! After a few pleasantries in London we'll get the show on the road with Paris in our sights.
A few hours in and your jaws are on the floor already. These chalk cliffs that edge the English coastline are known as the White Cliffs of Dover, the first of many natural beauties we'll see on your trip.
After we ferry across the English Channel for France we'll arrive in Calais, where we will take in the history of World War I while driving past ancient battlefields in the Valley of the Somme.
Kicking off night one, we arrive in none other than the lust-worthy Paris! It's straight down to business with tickets to the observation deck on the Montparnasse Tower.
Croissant in one hand, cafe in the other - this should be your signature look for the next few days. This town is loaded with possibilities. Discover its many bistros, museums, tree-lined avenues and diverse quartiers (neighbourhoods).
Get a feel for French flair by window shopping on the Left Bank, step into the Notre Dame Cathedral or explore the endless galleries of the Louvre and get up close to the famous Mona Lisa. Try indulging in some delicious pastries and relax in one of Paris’ many green spaces.
Treat yourself to the full Parisian experience with a cabaret show, complete with can-can girls, dinner and Champagne. But don’t stop there – afterwards hit the clubs and finish up your travels with a big Parisian night out.
See Louis the XIV's favourite Palace of Versailles, then head back to Paris to window shop with wishful eyes, admire old world art works, & take in the iconic sites, you have plenty of time to fall head over heels for the city of love.
Once we get back into the city you'll have a chance to visit Fragonard Perfumery - now there's a place to check out, and stock up on perfume, obviously. Especially given the greatly discounted prices and authenticity of buying in France. Then the afternoon is yours!! Missed the Mona Lisa yesterday? Didn't get a chance to stroll the Seine river and watch artists brushing ballerinas on easels? Luckily for you Paris is still your oyster (or snail) - we're in no great hurry to move on from this bliss.
Our trip ends after breakfast today. Say farewell to the romantic city of Paris after breakfast. Today, it’s a change of scene as you board your included flight to Italy’s capital & the awesome ancient Rome! Maybe take an evening stroll through the streets to see the epic blockbuster monuments lit up by night.
Please note: You'll travel independently by plane to Rome and then be transferred to your hotel where you will be met by a Contiki representative. Your stay in Rome is unescorted.
Wake up in stylish Rome. This place oozes energy and overflows with relics from another age. Use your included 3 day Metro pass to get around Rome at your own pace.
Get into the thriving atmosphere of this living timeline and check out the Pantheon, Piazza Venezia and Piazza Navona. Honour tradition at the Trevi Fountain and throw a coin in the fountain’s waters (it’s meant to improve your chances of returning to Rome!). Maybe hang out at the Spanish Steps with your new friends, sit back with a few slices of pizza and people-watch.
Uncover the remains of an ancient empire at the Roman Forum and Colosseum or visit the smallest country in the world and home to the Pope, the Vatican City. You’ve got plenty of time to take a closer look at St Peter’s Basilica or Michelangelo’s masterpiece, the Sistine Chapel.
Take off into the city and absorb the atmosphere, as Vespas flash past timeworn monuments that are surrounded by fountains, pizzerias, cafes and bars. Otherwise, live the local lifestyle by indulging in a long lunch on a paved piazza or knock back a shot of espresso at the bar, like the Romans do.
Before you hit the shops, get some pointers from hotel staff on where to go for the best buys.
Dive into Rome’s night action with your buddies and finish up your travels with a night to remember.
This morning its time to check out of the hotel and say arrivederci to Rome. Spend the morning remembering all the good times you've had on this trip and saying goodbye to the rest of your squad!
