A very warm welcome from your Travel Director. See the White Cliffs of Dover as you cross by ferry to Calais in France. Travel past the Somme battlefields in northern France to the glittering capital Paris, your home for the next two nights. Consider a cruise along the Seine in a glass-topped boat.

Your morning guided orientation covers many of the city's highlights including views of the Champs Élysées, Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower. Spend the afternoon as you wish. You might like to round off your Parisian adventure this evening with a spectacular cabaret show.
Paris – Lucerne Region
Today drive through the Burgundy region where vineyards stretch as far as the eye can see. Pass the fortified town of Belfort and arrive in lakeside Lucerne. Take in views of the 14th century Chapel Bridge and visit the Lion Monument during your orientation tour. Dine tonight at your hotel.

Cruise by private launch to St. Mark's Square and see the sumptuous Doge's Palace and St. Mark's Basilica. Watch the Venetian craftsmen at work creating local specialities at a glassblowing workshop. Afterwards you might like to take an Optional Experience to Burano Island for a delightful lunch. Cross the Apennine Mountains, arriving later in Florence, birthplace of the Renaissance.
