    Day 1: Arrive In Berlin

    Arrive in Berlin today and check in at your hotel for a two-night stay. The city of Berlin is like a living museum of 20th century Europe. From the newly rebuilt Reichstag, famously razed to the ground by the Nazis in 1933, to the Kaiser-Wilhelm Gedächtnis Church, whose half-bombed spire still dominates the skyline, not to mention the museums and monuments dedicated to the Berlin Wall, the city is endlessly fascinating for anyone interested in recent history. On the other hand, Berlin is also a city of the future, with a vibrant culture and plenty of great galleries, shopping and attractions. In the evening, head to the Mitte or Prenzlauer Berg areas of the city for great restaurants and bars. (Overnight in Berlin)

    Day 2: Berlin

    Spend another full day exploring Berlin today. For a further insight into Berlin's turbulent history, visit the fascinating Checkpoint Charlie or view the vibrantly colored fragments of the Berlin Wall at the East Side Gallery. On a sunny day, spend time strolling through the verdant Tiergarten, or head to the Alexanderplatz Tower to admire the spectacular views over the city. Many of the city's oldest and finest museums are housed on Museum Island, which is well worth a visit if you love art and culture. (Overnight in Berlin) 

    Day 3: Amsterdam

    After breakfast, catch a high-speed train for the journey to Amsterdam. On arrival, check in for two nights at your hotel. Often referred to as ‘the Venice of the North,' Amsterdam has more than 62 miles of canals, around ninety islands and fifteen hundred bridges. The 17th century network of three main canals in the center has now been granted UNESCO World Heritage status, and makes the perfect backdrop for a dream afternoon stroll. The city is also a world-famous center of culture, with 75 festivals a year and some great galleries including the ornate and imposing Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum. (Overnight in Amsterdam)

    Day 4: Amsterdam

    Enjoy breakfast in the hotel, and then why not enjoy a cruise along the canals? It's a great way to soak up the views of the traditional Dutch architecture and observe the laid-back yet lively pace of life from a different vantage point. Don't miss a trip to the fascinating Anne Frank House or the 800-year-old Oude Kirche. Shop until you drop in the Nine Streets (negen straatjes), checking out the jewelers, boutiques and vintage stores the area is famous for. When you need a break, there are plenty of cafés and restaurants to discover. Or you could even go further afield and find a stretch of beach to relax on at Zandvoort or Bloemendaal aan Zee. (Overnight in Amsterdam) 

    Day 5: Amsterdam To Paris

    After breakfast, travel at high-speed from Amsterdam to Paris. On arrival in Paris, check in for two nights at your hotel. Paris, the city of lights and love, is a must-see destination on any tour of Europe. Visit the Louvre or Musée d'Orsay for dazzling art collections, wander down the Champs Elysées for essential shopping, or view the beauty of the city from the top of the Eiffel Tower. In the evening, relax in one of the many fashionable districts of Paris. Catch a performance at the beautiful Opéra Garnier, the city's largest opera house, or a revue at the Moulin Rouge or book dinner at a traditional Parisian brasserie. (Overnight in Paris) 

    Day 6: Paris

    Spend another day sightseeing in Paris. Why not view the sights of Paris from a different perspective on a cruise down the Seine. Speak to one of our Travel Consultants about booking one of these boat tours! You might also like to visit the history museum located within the Arc de Triomphe or marvel at the Gothic Notre Dame Cathedral, which boasts incredible views from the North and South Towers. (Overnight in Paris)

    Day 7: Paris To Geneva

    Check out of your hotel after breakfast and take to the rails through the rolling French countryside to Geneva. On arrival, check in at your hotel for an overnight stay and set out to explore. Make the most of your time in Geneva - spend the evening enjoying a tasty meal at a local lakeside restaurant, or take a relaxing boat trip out on the lake and admire the city's cosmopolitan feel and the stunning backdrop of the Alps and the Jura mountains. (Overnight in Geneva) 

    Day 8: Geneva To Venice

    After breakfast, depart Geneva in the morning and travel to Venice on one of the most scenic routes in Europe, the Simplon Pass. Relax while the train follows the shores of Lake Leman and across Swiss vineyards, with stunning views of the Alps in the background. Travel further south after crossing the border into Italy before arriving in Venice. On arrival, check in at your hotel and enjoy a three-night stay. Stretched across 117 islands within the Venetian Lagoon, there is no doubt Venice is a unique city. Famed for its canals, its history and its ethereal beauty, the city continues to enchant visitors from all over the world, as it has done for centuries. (Overnight in Venice) 

    Day 9: Venice

    Venice, ‘the floating city', still casts its spell on visitors each year as it has done since the 18th century, when it became a major hub for the original Grand Tour. Discover for yourself with a gondola ride down the Grand Canal, a stroll through the city's labyrinthine streets and campos (squares) or by just sitting in a pavement café and enjoying the spectacular views with a glass of local Prosecco. (Overnight in Venice)

    Day 10: Venice To Rome

    After breakfast in Venice, take the high-speed train across Italy from Venice to the Italian capital - Rome. On arrival, make your way to your hotel and check in for a two-night stay. A fitting end to your vacation, Rome can be described as the cradle of Western Europe. The evidence of the city's 2,700 year history is written in the buildings, monuments and artworks on display around every corner, and a stroll through the city's streets will feel like wandering through a history book. Come the evening, don't miss a trip to the Trevi Fountain, which is beautifully illuminated after dark. Grab a gelato from one of the surrounding stores and toss a coin over your shoulder into the fountain to ensure you'll return to Rome some day! (Overnight in Rome) 

    Day 11: Rome

    Spend another day exploring Rome today. Walk in the footsteps of the gladiators at the imposing Colosseum and experience the wonders of the Sistine Chapel with Michelangelo's famous ceiling. Why not mix art and nature at the lush Villa Borghese gardens or take a well-earned break with a large ice-cream sundae in the Piazza Navona and reminisce on your fantastic vacation. (Overnight in Rome) 

    Day 12: Your Journey Ends In Rome

    Check out of your hotel after a leisurely breakfast and continue with your onward journey. If you'd like to extend your vacation, speak to one of our Rail Specialists about taking the train south to the Italian Riviera and the ancient, preserved town of Pompeii. The fine food, wine and Renaissance architecture of Florence are only a short, direct train ride away too! 

    Don't delay, book your trip today! Offer expires August 12, 2022.
