Next, you’ll travel to Paris, one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world and the fashionable capital of France. Obvious highlights include the Eiffel Tower; the former historic palace, The Louvre, now home to a mammoth art collection and the iconic Arc de Triomphe. To discover the city from a different perspective, you could also join a sightseeing or restaurant cruise along the River Seine as you drift past the river banks and famous monuments of Paris.

The cobwebbed canals of Venice await – enchanting and exquisite the city is a showstopper. Traverse the atmospheric waterways onboard an elegant gondola; visit the stunning Doge’s Palace or sip a glass of prosecco and watch the world go by at Piazza San Marco.

Your final destination is the Eternal City of Rome. Explore streets steeped in ancient history, where Byzantine mosaics grace church ceilings and cool catacombs slumber beneath your feet. With three nights in this unforgettable location, you’ll be awed by the scale of St Peter’s Square at the Vatican and the imposing Colosseum as you walk in the footsteps of gladiators.
