DAY 1 - Arrive London

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 4:00pm meet up with your Trip Manager and get to know your fellow travellers.  
DAY 2 - London to Paris

See the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, the Champs-Élysées, and Notre Dame Cathedral
Get a view of Paris from the Montparnasse Tower
See the White Cliffs of Dover

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. 

Calais

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.

Paris

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 Eiffel Tower.

Stay
Ibis Paris Alesia Montparnasse 14th Hotel (or similar)
DAY 3 - Paris
Paris

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. Later you can drool over haute couture, admire the Notre Dame Cathedral whilst juggling coffee and crêpes, & get artsy at the many exhibitions of the Louvre. Just don't wear yourself out, you will probably want to get involved with dinner and the Nouvelle Eve cabaret show.

Munich

A city famous the world over for its annual beer festival is a city we need to know about. And luckily enough, the Bavarian culture of the beer fest is a year round attraction. After exploring the Old Town and seeing the Glockenspiel & Marienplatz, throw your feet up in a traditional beer hall, downing roasted pork knuckle & a stein of one of Germany’s 5000 brews.

Stay
Super 8 Hotel Munich City (or similar)
DAY 6 - Munich to Austrian Tyrol via Innsbruck

After crossing through the Bavarian Alps, its time to head to this famous Olympic town and your jaw will drop at the sight of the famous ski jump, and you'll have a chance to soak up the medieval old town atmosphere for the afternoon, don't forget to try a piece of delicious Austrian strudel and some local schnaps!

Austrian Tyrol

2-nights at an insanely cute Austrian Gasthof (guest house) are coming right up. Tyrol will prove a haven for both adrenalin junkies and those in need of a bit of RNR in order to stay on form for all the globe trotting we've got coming up. 

Stay
Haus Lukas (or similar)
DAY 7 - Austrian Tyrol
Austrian Tyrol
Wake up, peel open your curtains, and take in the magnificence of your view...and your life in general. If you're feeling lively you can jump onto a bike tour through green mountains and waterfalls. If you're feeling really lively you can go tandem paragliding. Not so lively? Stroll around and take in the incredible setting; drink endless hot chocolate, go up a mountain in a gondola, carry on sighing with happiness.

Venice

Wake-up sleeping beauties! Venice is yours for the entirety of this glorious Italian day.

Venice
Venice we love you, but we need to see a bit more of this boot to satisfy our hungry wanderlust ways.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
See the Leaning Tower of Pisa
Pisa
As if we were going to leg it from Venice to Florence without a sneaky side trip to the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Depriving you of the chance to perfect the holding-up-the-tower shot would be down right criminal.
Florence
For those of you not familiar with the whole Florence deal, we have two words for you: it's heaven. Potter along the River Arno, be totally Tuscan with a drop of Chianti wine, and take in the beauty of the city and its protruding Duomo Cathedral.

Espressos and people watching should be high priority. 
Rome
Then hit the streets for your own discoveries. Snap pink azaleas by the Colosseum, throw coins in fountains and sip espresso in a pretty street watching Italian life float by. Tonight, choose your own adventure for dinner before you celebrate your final night with your new friends.

There were bedbugs in the hotel beds. I know it's a budget trip so I did not mind some of the ugly rooms but I was hoping we would pay for something clean.

This was a great trip to see many places in just a couple weeks. Although, I didn't feel rushed going through the countries since we had two nights in many cities. I also enjoyed the hotels we stayed in.

Booking flights through Contiki was a pain. It wasn't disclosed that we have to stick with an airline once we purchased. Air Canada tried to move our flights three times. We canceled the flight and bought the airfare ourselves. Contiki overall was a good value for the money.

Perfect to see a lot of Europe, and spending 6 nights in Italy. Not too fast paced, a good mix of relaxed exploring, good food and entertainment, like the cabaret show in Paris which is a must, and also high energy fun like paragliding and white water rafting in Austria. Road to Rome has everything you need :)
