The entire day focuses on Paris. Your tour manager will point out the main sights, such as the Champs-Élysées, Arc de Triomphe, Louvre Museum (open daily except Tuesdays), Opera (Palais Garnier) and Galeries Lafayette department store. A great way to begin your sightseeing is by joining the optional Seine River Cruise excursion for views of Notre Dame Cathedral, Eiffel Tower, and other incredible landmarks along the river. Tonight, join your fellow tour members for a “Welcome to Europe” dinner at a festive Paris bistro.

Travel through the Burgundy wine region this morning, on the way to the historic walled city of Beaune. After check-in at your hotel, spend some time exploring the landmarks of this intriguing town, one of France’s major wine centers going back to pre-Roman times. An independent dinner presents the opportunity to visit a wine cellar and to sample the regional cuisine.

The tour manager will offer an optional Venice Dinner excursion before returning to your Verona area hotel.
DAY 9 B, D
Your first stop in Tuscany will be the medieval center of Lucca, followed by the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa. Work on this unique structure began in 1174, and it had already started to tilt while building the second floor.

DAY 10 B, D
This day is devoted to the art and architecture of Florence. Some of the masterpieces you will see during the guided walking tour are the Duomo, the bronze baptistry doors by Ghiberti, and Giotto’s Bell Tower.
