Trip Summary
2 nights in Munich

Big-city style and rural charm, Alpine character and Mediterranean verve, art treasures and the Oktoberfest, traditional customs and high technology, beer gardens and haute cuisine, operas and cool bars; these are all ingredients that makes Bavaria's state capital so endlessly fascinating, and so popular with visitors from all over the world. Sprawling Munich is one of Germany's major cultural centers, second only to Berlin in terms of museums and theaters. It's also one of Germany's most festive cities, and its location, at the foot of the Alps, is idyllic. Munich's self-imposed image is that of a fun-loving and festival-addicted city - typified by its Oktoberfest.

Recommended Stay:
At least 3 nights

Must See's:
Marienplatz and the New Town Hall of Munich, Frauenkirche - Cathedral of Our Blessed Lady, Dachau Concentration Camp, The English Garden, Beer Halls, Viktualienmarkt, Residence Palace of Munich, Deutsches Museum, Museums Ensemble: Alte Pinakothek, Neue Pinakothek, Pinakothek der Moderne, Olympic Stadium of Munich, BMW Museum and much more.



2 nights in Salzburg

Art lovers call Salzburg the Golden City of High Baroque; historians refer to it as the Florence of the North, or the German Rome; and music lovers know it as the Festival City - birthplace of Mozart and home of the world-famous Mozart Festival. Several beautiful castles and palaces dot the city. While Salzburg is a visual pageant of Baroque motifs, music is the element that shapes the life of the city. It is heard everywhere: in churches, castles, palaces, and, of course, concert halls.


Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Festung Hohensalzburg, Residenzplatz, Mirabell Palace, St Peter`s Abbey, Salzburg Cathedral Mozart`s Birthplace, Old Town, St. Sebastian`s Church and Cemetery, Schloss Mirabell and Gardens, and so much more!


2 nights in Innsbruck

Innsbruck is one of Europe`s oldest and most beautiful ski centers. Nestled in the Tyrolean Alps, the area has some 200 trails covering 310 miles and is perfect for beginner and intermediate-level skiers. It is a winter sports center with modern facilities. Non-skiers and summer visitors can enjoy the sights of the medieval Old Town, the shops with Tyrolean specialties, and the many other outdoor activities that Tyrol offers. Culture seekers will be happy with world-class opera, gorgeous architecture, and superb museums.

Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Explore the Old Town, The Hofkirche and the Emperor`s Tomb, The Golden Roof, The Hofburg, The Cathedral of St James, The Nordkettenbahnen, the Tyrolean State Museums, The Hofburg District, The River Inn, The Alpine Zoo, The Ambras Palace and so much more!


2 nights in Verona

The city of Verona in the province of Veneto, Northern Italy, rivals Venice in terms of magic and romance. Visitors turn here in numbers, making this town the most visited of the province after Venice. Aside from Romeo and Juliet's strong pull, Verona is a charming medieval and Renaissance city, with numerous medieval palazzi, churches, towers, and centuries-old piazzas. Among other objectives of interest are the Roman amphitheatre (the third largest in Italy), Arco dei Gavi, Basilica of San Zeno.


2 nights in Venice

With sumptuous palaces and romantic waterways, Venice is straight out of an 18th-century Canaletto masterpiece. No matter how many times you have seen it in movies or TV commercials, the real thing is more surreal and dreamlike than you ever imagined. Its landmarks, the Basilica di San Marco and the Palazzo Ducale are exotic mélanges of Byzantine, Gothic, and Renaissance styles. It is full of secrets, ineffably romantic, and - at times - given over entirely to pleasure. You must walk everywhere in Venice and where you cannot walk, you go by water.


Recommended Stay: 2 nights
Must See`s:
People-watch at Piazza San Marco, Stroll Across the Rialto Bridge, Get Lost in the Endless Canals, Admire the Basilica Santa Maria della Salute, Visit the San Giorgio dei Greci, Walk Around the Jewish Ghetto, Learn About Venice`s Musical History, Tour Venice`s Unique Architecture at Campo Santa Maria Formosa, Celebrate One of Venice'` Many Festivals, Go Window Shopping, and so much more!


2 nights in Lugano

This fashionable city with 40,000 inhabitants rests in the Swiss canton of Ticino. Lugano graces the lakeshore with its tree-lined promenade, stately hotels, banks and office buildings, while high above, Mount San Salvatore and Mount Brè flank the city and provide stunning wooded backdrops that frame charming mountaintop villages. Taken from Milan by the Swiss in 1512, it was ruled as a subject district until the dissolution of the old Swiss Confederation in 1798.


Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Explore the Old Town, Enjoy the beautiful Lake Lugano, Hike Wander the lovely Parco Civico-Ciani, Take the funicular up to Monte Brè, Admire the lovely San Lorenzo Cathedral, Learn some history of the area by visiting Hermann Hesse Museum, Check out the Swissminiatur, Hike the Olive Grove Trail, Sample some chocolates at The Alprose Chocolate Museum, Visit the lovely nearby town of Vico Morcote, and so much more!


2 nights in Lucerne

Located at the north end of the Lake Lucerne within sight of Mount Pilatus and Rigi, Lucerne is a beautiful small city in the heartland of Switzerland. It abounds in narrow cobblestone streets, covered bridges, frescoed houses, and fountains. The city became a center of Swiss history and legend, and is the setting for the most memorable part of the legend of William Tell who shot an apple off of his son's head. Lucerne is also a great base from which to explore other famous Swiss sites.


Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Explore the Old Town, Walk the Medieval Wooden Covered Bridges, Hike Mt Rigi or Mt Pilatus, Walk the Fortress Walls, Cruise on the Lake by boat, Visit the Lion Monument, Visit Jesuit Church, Visit the many Museums, Check out the Glacier Garden, take some pictures at the Bourbaki Panorama, and so much more!


2 nights in Zurich

Zurich is a stunningly gorgeous with a beautifully-preserved old town, endless greenery, wondrous snow-capped mountains, fresh air, and crystal clear lake views. The city`s extraordinary museums, churches and galleries, confirm the city`s position as Switzerland's spiritual, if not political, capital. There is also a hip, less conventional side to Zurich. Züri West, once the industrial section, has become the in spot over the last decade, with loft living, galleries, museums, experimental theater and clubs.


Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Lake Zurich, Old Town (Altstadt), Museum of Art (Kunsthaus Zurich), Uetliberg Mountain, Zoo Zurich, Lindenhofplatz, Bahnhofstrasse, Grossmunster, Church of Our Lady (Fraumunster), Rietberg Museum and so much more!

Package Map Picture
Germany

Germany's landscape is straight from the Fairy tales: castles, deep dark forests and mythical rivers. The German landscapes are extraordinarily diverse, with graceful big-city appeal, small picture-postcard towns, pagan-inspired harvest festivals, a wealth of art and culture, and the perennial pleasures of huge tracts of forest, delightful castles and fine wine and beer. From Charlemagne and the Holy Roman Empire to the rise and fall of the Berlin Wall, no other nation has molded Europe the way Germany has - for better or worse.

Italy

For centuries, Italy has drawn foreign visitors, mostly for its architectural, artistic and scenic splendors. Italy can truly be all things to all people. For some the Italian experience is full of passion and excitement, urbanity, crowds and noise. For others it is a quiet rural idyll where the traditional life can be experienced. Its great cities are replete with fantastic works of art ranging from the Roman times to the Renaissance. Even then, many visitors will forego the rich attractions of culture in favor of some of the most unspoilt beaches and spectacular mountains in the world.

Switzerland

Switzerland is a pristine country of lakes, mountains and forests. The best known of the continent`s mountain ranges, the Alpine chain, runs through most of Switzerland and provides the majority of the country`s magnificent natural sights. In the summer, towns such as Interlaken become green mountain centers for walking and mountaineering, and there are few places more naturally beautiful in the whole of Europe. Zurich, Geneva, Bern and Lucerne are models of Swiss efficiency, offering a wealth of perfectly serene history. Less busy are the lakeside resorts, including fashionable Montreux on Lake Geneva.

Austria

Austria is more epitomized by green glacial valleys and snow-capped peaks - and the wooden picture postcard chalets. Nonetheless, visitors have much to explore from the stylish capital, Vienna, to the baroque splendor of Salzburg. Austria's mountain landscape is undoubtedly its biggest draw for tourists. Although a year-round destination, there is a definite seasonal split in visitors. Summer is best for exploring the countryside on the many mountain trails that snake through the Austrian Alps and the lowlands, while the ski season kicks off in December, attracting winter sports fans from all over the world.
