From its exciting cities to its spectacular scenery, Europe has it all, and on this European tour, you’ll see its highlights. You’ll spend the night in London, Lucerne, Bergamo, and Venice; two nights each in Paris and Rome; and three nights in beautiful Sorrento. You’ll enjoy sightseeing with local experts who will bring the cities and their sights alive, including the Eiffel Tower in Paris, where you’ll ascend to the second floor for great views; the Lion Monument in Lucerne, commemorating the Swiss Guards killed during the French Revolution; Signoria Square in Florence, the center of the city’s political life since the 14th century; the Sistine Chapel in Rome, home to Michelangelo’s famous ceiling paintings; and Sorrento’s Cloister of St. Francis Church, with its mix of architectural styles. Among many other fun experiences included, you’ll ride a funicular in Bergamo, walk through the narrow streets of Bergamo Alta, participate in a pasta party in Venice, take a private water-taxi ride through the Grand Canal, and enjoy a locally produced limoncello in Sorrento.</BR></BR>It is not just the cities you will see on this European tour; you will also see some of Europe’s beautiful scenery. Admire views of castles and vineyards on the way to the Swiss Alps; enjoy a drive past the beautiful Fontainebleau Forest in France; take an exciting drive along the St. Gotthard highway, which leads straight through the Swiss Alps and the Swiss-Italian lake district; and cross the Apennine Mountains between Venice and Florence. </BR></BR>Like all Globus tours of Europe, you will have VIP access to the must-see attractions. This means you will spend your time inside the attractions, such as the Colosseum in Rome, rather than outside in long lines.
