from $4085
Duration: 11 Days
Embark on a family road trip from Rome to London, filled with lashings of carnival masks, chariot racing and cheesy pizza you'll learn to make yourself.
Day 1
Arrive Rome (2 Nights)
Buckle up Bambinos - we're off on a grand adventure through Europe, launching our Family Experience in the 'Eternal City' of Rome. This evening we enjoy a Kick-Off Party with our travel companions where we 'Dive Into Culture' with a 'Family Fun' experience and learn how to make a pizza that would make any Italian mamma proud. Later, we have an orientation drive to give you a taste of some of the major sites.
Day 2
Rome Sightseeing and Free Time
Delve into the open-air museum that is Rome, joining a 'Local Specialist' for a sightseeing tour that will see you rub shoulders with St. Peter and the thousands of pilgrims that flock to the impressive square that bears his name. See Michelangelo's famous Pietà statue in St. Peter's Basilica before crossing the Tiber into Ancient Rome. Imagine the once thunderous applause of excited spectators as they cheered their gladiators to victory inside the Colosseum, and the roar of chariots circling Circus Maximus. This evening, we dine in our hotel.
Day 3
Rome – Siena – Florence (2 Nights)
Explore the medieval playground of Siena, strolling to the shell-shaped Piazza del Campo, where the festive Palio bareback horse race runs twice a year against the backdrop of colourful flags and emblems. Arriving in Florence this afternoon, spend time exploring the Cradle of Renaissance, discovering the best spots to indulge in cioccolata calda. This evening we 'Connect With Locals' over a 'Be My Guest' dinner in the Chianti Countryside.
Day 4
Florence Sightseeing and Free Time
The treasures of the Medici family are on full display as we delve into the centuries of art, architecture and tumultuous history. Join a 'Local Specialist' for a walking tour of the city. Visit the Piazza della Signoria, the hub of the city, and view the magnificent marble Duomo. Learn about the quality and workmanship of two of this city's historic industries at demonstrations of Florentine leathercraft and 18-carat gold. Then, spend the rest of the afternoon at leisure. Climb a tree or two in Boboli Gardens, tick off great masterpieces in Uffizi Gallery or see Renaissance history brought to life in the Palazzo Vecchio's Children's Museum. You could also join an Optional Experience to snap a selfie next to the Leaning Tower of Pisa before returning to Florence and pounding the pavements in search of the city's tastiest gelato.
Day 5
Florence – Bologna – Venice (2 Nights)
Cross the Apennine Mountains to the city of Bologna where you will join a 'Local Specialist' to view the city's Kissing Towers and Il Gigante, commonly known as Neptune's Fountains. Ditch your diet and indulge in the delicious flavours of what is widely regarded as the gastronomic capital of Italy - chase tortellini around your plate or twirl Spaghetti Bolognese like a local. This afternoon, we arrive in the island city of Venice. Spend a leisurely afternoon exploring with the family or enjoy an Optional Experience gondola ride through Venice's labyrinthine canals.
Day 6
Venice Orientation and Free Time
'Dive Into Culture' and witness first-hand the centuries-old tradition of Venetian tradition glassmaking on Giudecca Island. Take to the water and cruise by private launch to the gateway of Venice, St. Mark's Square.

Then, join a 'Local Specialist' for a 'Family Fun' experience to learn about the great Venetian tradition of Carnival masks, with an opportunity to create your own colourful alter egos.
Day 7
Venice – Lake Como – Engelberg (2 Nights)
We travel through the Italian Lake District bound for Switzerland this morning and enjoy some free time for lunch in the laid-back lakeside town of Como, which for centuries has served as the crossroads between Central Europe and the Mediterranean. We continue through Alpine landscapes, past Lugano and through St. Gotthard tunnel into central Switzerland, before arriving into Engelberg.

Day 9
Engelberg – Paris (2 Nights)
From Switzerland, we cross the mighty Rhine River and into France, travelling through the Burgundy wine region to the 'City of Lights'. This evening, amble up grand boulevards and through tiny cobblestone lanes in search of the French treasures you'll have an opportunity to sample tomorrow.
