Your Itinerary

Day 1: London, England to Paris, France

All good things start with Paris. Meet the crew and grab some supplies before we hit the road early in the morning and jump across the English Channel. The home of Coco Chanel, the Pompidou Centre and the Mona Lisa, Paris more than deserves its reputation as the European capital for all things culture, fashion and food-related. What better way to start the trip than with a driving tour and delicious picnic next to the Eiffel Tower?

Meals: Dinner

Day 2: Paris

This morning: free time en Français. From the Louvre and the Musée d'Orsay to the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysées, you'll be sure to make a solid dent in your bucket list. Later on, it’s up to you: stretch those legs on an optional bike tour of Paris or simply roam the streets on your own. End your day with an optional Seine River cruise or a #throwback cabaret show.

Meals: Breakfast

Optional Extras: Traditional cabaret show: from €65 | Seine river cruise: from €10 | Bike tour of Paris: from €30

Trade in Parisian streets for snowy peaks. Home to the ‘Top of Europe’, 72 waterfalls and one of the largest nature conservations in Switzerland, Lauterbrunnen is where we'll be spending the night. Upon arrival, we’ll get stuck into an included dinner before heading to the bar for a nightcap. Cheers!

This morning, you do you! Laze on the beach, or go wild in the designer boutiques in Nice's Old Town.
