Europe-a continent rich with different cultures, gastronomic specialties, architecture, art, scenery, and history-and this is the ideal Continental Introduction: experience and see what Europe has to offer. Spend two nights in Paris, Rome, Venice, and Amsterdam plus overnights in Lucerne, Lugano, Florence, Munich, and the Rhineland. On the included sightseeing tours, see examples of the local art and architecture, such as Michelangelo’s David statue and the magnificent cathedral in Florence, Michelangelo’s ceiling paintings in Rome’s Sistine Chapel, the Arc de Triomphe and Champs-Elysées in Paris, and the patrician mansions in Amsterdam. Learn about the fascinating histories of the attractions you visit such as Rome’s Colosseum, completed in the 1st century AD; Lucerne’s Lion Monument, commemorating the Swiss Guards killed during the French Revolution; the medieval center of Innsbruck; and Rothenburg, a walled town that has preserved its medieval character, and is famous for Christmas ornaments.

Food and drink are important elements to local cultures and to any European vacation. That’s why on this tour, Globus has included some unique opportunities to sample the local flavors, like a welcome dinner at one of Paris’ fine restaurants, a dinner with Tuscan specialties at a local restaurant in Florence and an aperitif at the famous Caffé Florian on St. Mark’s Square in Venice. A cruise on the River Seine, as well as a visit to Munich’s famous Hofbräuhaus, dating back to 1589, are also included.

Magnificent scenery awaits you on this tour through Europe. Enjoy spectacular Lake Lugano in Switzerland, the towering majesty of the Swiss Alps, a beautiful Rhine cruise passing by castle-crested hills and terraced vineyards, and more. Scenery, food, historical monuments, distinct art and architecture, and much more-it’s all available on this splendid European vacation!
