About this tour

Travel from Barcelona to Rome on an epic 36-day odyssey covering 11 countries. Along with the iconic sights offered by Berlin, Paris and Amsterdam, you’ll also venture to the serene Old Town of Salzburg, get a bird’s eye view of Bratislava from UFO Tower and comb the markets of Avignon for locally grown produce. This trip will suit both those looking to discover Europe for the first time and veterans of the region just wanting to revisit their favourite haunts. Steeped in history and stuffed with all your favourite regional cuisines, this small group adventure is the ultimate foray into the European heartlands.This trip is made for travellers who value their independence but also want the benefit of a local leader and a group of like-minded travellers. The itinerary includes lots of free time when your leader will offer suggestions. Please budget spending money for optional activities you want to partake in.As accommodation on this trip is twin-share, you will share a room with other travellers of the same gender. This trip is a great opportunity to get to know other like-minded people, so embrace it while you can. Also, hotels in Europe often don't have double beds, but rather two single beds that can be pushed together/apart. Rooms can be rather small, especially compared to American or Australian standards, and in most cases bathroom facilities will be shared rather than ensuite. A single supplement is not available on this trip.Summer temperatures can be very high in many of the regions visited (over 40°C), which can be uncomfortable. It’s important to use sun protection, wear layers to combat the heat, and drink plenty of water. Please keep in mind that many European hotel rooms are not equipped with air-conditioning. Carefully consider the time of the year you wish to travel and your suitability to that season.The primary means of transportation on this trip is by train. Trains are a fast way to cross long distances, allowing you to avoid traffic jams and arrive right into the city centre. They are comfortable and all have toilets; however, can sometimes be quite busy. You will have to carry your own luggage on and off the train, as well as some short distances to the hotel (no longer than 30min). It’s recommended that you leave any wheelie bags/cases at home and bring a backpack instead, but please make sure it doesn’t exceed our weight and size recommendations listed in the 'Packing' section of the Essential Trip Information.In many of these locations, we will be using different modes of local transport; trams, buses or metro. As this is often an adventure in itself, it may also bring some challenges. Prepare yourself for the rush of the metro stations and the busy bus rides with local commuters!
