DAY 1 - Rome to Venice

Rome

Buono giorno! Meet and greet your new friends and Trip Manager, full of anticipation for the adventures ahead. After a quick gelato, we leave Rome behind and head north to Venice, city of gondolas and good times.

Venice

Who can fail to fall in love with the watery wonderland that is Venice? With no roads, Venice is built on over 100 small islands, with 400 bridges crossing 150 canals including the main Grand Canal, lined with Renaissance and Gothic palaces. Tonight you could make time for a scenic evening stroll to watch the lights sparkle on the water, with time for plenty more exploring tomorrow.

Stay

3-4 Star Standard Hotel

DAY 2 - Venice

Venice

Wakey wakey wanderlusters! The less you sleep, the more time you have perusing the prettiness of Venice, and it's yours for the entirety of this glorious Italian day. We'll be jumping aboard our own private boat and hitting the canals en route to the historical heart of the city to get straight into the city sights. A guided walking tour and a gondola ride are up for grabs, or you can always choose to get lost on your own and see where the maze takes you. Being disappointed come sunset is completely implausible. 

Stay

3-4 Star Standard Hotel

  • See Venice's iconic canals & gondolas

DAY 3 - Venice to Vienna

Venice

Satisfied with all the good vibes Venice has delivered, we will move on to Vienna, leaving Italy in exchange for the Austrian capital. 

Vienna

Wooden chalets and green mountains occupy our Sound of Music drive through the Dolomites. On arrival in Vienna we will be greeted by a cultural hub bursting with historical cuteness and the chance to see a Mozart and Strauss concert in one of the city's palaces...yes, a palace (just the way they roll here in Vienna). 

Stay

Novum Hotel Prinz Eugen (or similar)

DAY 4 - Vienna

Vienna

Let's make one thing very clear: if you want to make your whole day about full-bodied Viennese coffee & warm apple strudel with whipped cream, we're not going to judge. Those who can drag themselves away from this heavenly situation can take in the Schönbrunn Palace, then stroll the streets for a walking tour to see the St. Stephen's Cathedral & the State Opera House, and stopping by Swarvoski for some glittery gifts for friends back home.

Vienna

Vielen dank, Vienna! We are officially in love with everything you are. We'd stay for another strudel but we've heard about the beer culture in Munich and we're a little bit intrigued... 

Mauthausen

Before we arrive in mighty Munich, we make a sobering stop at Mauthausen Concentration Camp memorial to remember Germany's turbulent past. 

Munich

Even when Oktoberfest isn't in full swing, Munich is a treasure trove of Bavarian cultural experiences. 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.

Although we're checking out of Munich today, this is not the last Germany has seen of us. We will reunite with this fine country after a gratifying stint in the city of Prague. 

Prague

The capital of the Czech Republic is fast becoming one of the hottest spots on the European map, and today you find out why. Cathedrals and pretty bridges should mark the start of your roamings in this spirited city, starting with a walking tour. Gothic vibes, the famous Charles Bridge, astronomical clock and St Vitus in the cobbled castle district will leave your jaw dropping at just how amazing and old this continent really is. Rest assured you've seen a lot, and we have all day tomorrow to carry the journey along.

Prague

Pack your bags and say your sincere thanks to the Czech Republic for being such a lovely host. As promised, we're heading back to Germany for a bout in Berlin. 

Dresden

A drive from Prague to Berlin would not be complete without stopping in Dresden. Destroyed by World War II, the rebuilt town is now a symbol of resilience, soaked in the rebirthed beauty of an Opera house, the domed Frauenkirche, & the Royal Residence.

Berlin

Bursting with energy and good vibes round-the-clock, playing nocturnal for the two nights we have in Berlin is a way to explore this city known for exploring both day and night.

You can sign up for the city's historical walking tour to discover even more ending up at Checkpoint Charlie.
