Day 1: London to Paris

Join forces in London & get to know the wolf pack you’re about to take on Europe with. We’ll hit the road this morning and make tracks for two weeks of adventure.

Day 2: Paris

Drool over haute couture, admire the Notre Dame Cathedral whilst juggling coffee and crêpes & get artsy at the many museums of the Louvre. Just don’t wear yourself out, you will probably want to get involved with dinner and the Nouvelle Eve Champagne show. Smitten and it’s only day two!

Day 3: Beaujolais Wine Region via Fontainebleau

With its medieval stature and grand surrounding ponds, Château Fontainebleau will take your breath away. We’ll amble around the gardens then recommence our scenic journey to Beaujolais.

Tonight’s the night we camp out at Contiki’s very own 16th century Château. We say “camp” – LOL. This might be the most royal experience of your life. Wine tasting at the Château’s working winery is just one of the ways we’ll kill time while we’re here.

Day 4: French Riviera

Missing an opportunity to see this glorious part of the world up close and personal would be criminal. Speaking of things you shouldn’t miss, this region is famous for lavender honey, aioli & rosé wine; all 3 in one meal should be your mission.

Day 5: French Riviera & Monaco

A night in glamorous Monaco should complete your day slash life. Don a fancy necklace and pop a plum in your mouth – we’re about to embark on the lifestyle of the rich and the famous.

After a night on the blackjack table it’s back to the coast and to bed, the next part of the adventure starts tomorrow.

Day 6: French Riviera to Florence via Pisa

No trip around Europe is complete without seeing the world’s most famous #AwkwardLean, the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Once you’ve got that perfect snap of you holding the thing up like you’re Arnold Schwarzenegger, we’ll be on the fast-track to Florence.

The dome of Duomo Cathedral sits above the city making certain we know we have arrived in Florence. Tonight you can choose to begin your Tuscan love affair at a Free Time Add-On dinner – think olives, pastas, focaccia, meats & wine.

Day 7: Florence to Rome

Why flee Florence when we still have some discoveries to make? We’ll become history buffs on a guided walking tour before we learn the art of leather and eventually hit the road for Rome.

And you thought your morning was interesting! The afternoon will really take it up a notch as we uncover Italian icons in the country’s capital of Rome as you get a glimpse of its glory by night. Gelato, pizza and ancient monuments – perfecto!

Day 8: Rome

In Italy any time is Aperol Spritz time, but there’s definitely no better time than on our last evening in Rome. Tonight we’ll learn how to mix, shake & pour our way to the perfect blend of bitter and bubbly magic in an included Italian Cocktail making class. All the ingredients we need will be supplied to master Italian’s unofficial national drink along with a selection of other Italian classics. One more for the road?

Day 9: Venice

Boats, bridges, gondolas; your heart is going to pound.

Day 10: Munich via Austrian Tyrol

Bavarian culture, a famous Glockenspiel and charm aplenty; Munich doesn’t just turn it on during Oktoberfest! Explore peaceful gardens and legendary beer halls or join in the bike tour and explore the side streets you wouldn’t usually see.

Day 11: Rhine Valley via Dachau

They say that the more you learn about the past, the better prepared you are for the future. And today the past will unfold itself at the Dachau concentration camp memorial.

After the scenic journey of fairytale castles, vineyards and valleys, you’ll be charmed before we even arrive in Germany’s famous Rhine Valley. This back-in-time town is our wine tasting host for the evening. Squeal!!!

Day 12: Amsterdam via Edam

You know the cheese, and now you’re going to know the place that pioneered it. We’ll cycle into the countryside squealing at windmills & going hysterical over tulip fields on our way to an actual cheese farm & clog maker’s house.

Pretty canals lined with quaint crooked houses and cafes bursting with life. Amsterdam is all that and way more than what you could ever imagine.

Day 13: Amsterdam 

It’s our last full day on trip & our last night to party up a storm with the squad. Use the day to explore quirky museums & sample the endless array of cuisines this city has on offer. The best way to say farewell to this gorgeous city? Opt to take the A’DAM lookout swing, an incredible observation deck with unrivalled panoramas of the twisting canals below.

Day 14 – Depart Amsterdam

Down your breakfast and wipe away your tears – this is always the worst day of the trip. We’ll escort you to Schiphol Airport by about 10am for those leaving us in the canal lined city.
