Our journey through Europe kicks off with a dive into ancient history and a taste of Italy’s finest flavors. Get ready to explore, connect and indulge in the heart of Rome – all while creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Time to begin our adventure with a rendezvous at the most iconic amphitheater ever built – The Colosseum. As we step onto the same ground where gladiators once battled, history comes alive before our eyes. Stroll through the hallowed grounds of the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill and as the day turns to dusk, we’ll ascend the Spanish Steps to witness a breathtaking sunset painting the city with hues of gold and crimson. Our group tradition awaits at the Trevi Fountain, where coins will take flight, carrying wishes for our return to Rome.

Indulgence takes center stage today as we roll up our sleeves for a private pizza-making workshop, crafting and savoring traditional Roman pizza. Then, off to St. Peter’s Basilica, where grandeur meets spirituality. We’ll journey through the Vatican Museums and stand in awe before the Sistine Chapel, where Michelangelo’s masterpieces whisper stories of the past. It’s here that we’ll unravel the threads connecting the Roman Empire to our contemporary world, a reminder that history’s influence echoes through time.

Today is a travel day from Rome to Paris.

There’s a reason why artists, poets and politicians from all over Europe (and the world) flooded Paris during the Age of Enlightenment in the 18th century. Prepare to be captivated by the allure of Paris, where history, art and culture converge.

Exploration begins at the opulent Royal Palace of Versailles, a testament to centuries of French monarchy.

Experience panoramic views at the iconic Basilica of SacrĂ©-Coeur and walk through the charming cobbled streets of Montmartre.

Ascend the Eiffel Tower for a breathtaking 360 degree vista of the city, then glide down the River Seine on a cruise that unveils Paris from a new angle. Taste global flavors, indulge in macarons and let the city’s culinary scene tantalize your senses. We’ll spend time creating meaningful connections by volunteering with a local organization, taking a moment to give back to the city that has embraced us.

Au revoir Paris! We’ll set our sights on London. Aboard the Eurostar, zoom through the iconic Channel Tunnel, a testament to Europe’s unity. London awaits, an epic finale to our European voyage.
