Package Overview

This is a partially escorted tour. It’s perfect if you prefer not to do your own driving and want to see as many sights as you can during your vacation. 

This vacation is packed with must-see sites across Italy, Switzerland, and France! Start off with two nights on your own in Rome. Indulge in culinary classics like pizza and pasta, see iconic sites like the Colosseum and Trevi Fountain, and sip a cappuccino in Piazza Navona like a local. From Rome, you'll be scooped up by a knowledgeable guide who will whisk you away on your escorted tour!

From Rome, you'll head to the colorful city of Bologna. Exploring this city will make you feel like you traveled back in time! From Bologna, your guide will bring you through the lake-filled region of Lombardy to Lake Como, framed by the Alps. Spend the day in Lenno, a charming town on the lake's west bank, before crossing the Swiss border to Lugano! During your stay in Lugano, you'll experience once-in-a-lifetime scenery as your guide brings you to Locarno, Lake Maggiore, Stresa, and Varese. 

En route to Lausanne, you'll stop at the picture-perfect alpine town of Lauterbrunnen. Adorned with over 70 waterfalls and chalet-style houses, this town boasts a charming main street surrounded by scenic wonder. Upon arrival in Lausanne, take a stroll along sparkling Lake Geneva! While staying in Lausanne, you'll be taken on an excursion to the storybook medieval town of Gruyères, famous for its cheese and chocolate. Before returning to Lausanne, you'll also enjoy a stop in Gstaad for lunch! 

On day 8, you'll wave goodbye to the spectacular scenery of Switzerland as you cross the French border. Stop in the historic city of Dole and the walled town of Chablis before arriving in The City of Light - Paris! Upon arrival in Paris, you'll say goodbye to your tour group and explore at your own pace. From the Eiffel Tower to the Louvre, discover the beauty of Paris one baguette at a time!
