More Information

DAY 1 Barcelona, Spain

Enter: Barcelona, where tapas and sangria rule. Uncover the food market gems scattered across the city and satisfy your inner foodie before you meet the group in the afternoon. Tonight, there’s an optional flamenco show which you won’t wanna miss.


DAY 2 Barcelona

Who needs the snooze button when you’ve got a whole day in a city packed to the rafters with art nouveau, alluring accents and (most importantly) tapas? Hit the side streets and alleyways of Las Ramblas, go boho in the Gracia neighborhood, go Gaudí at Parc Güell or give in to your inner football fanatic and kneel to the sporting gods at the Nou Camp.


DAY 3 Barcelona to French Riviera, France

Get that selfie stick out! We’re rolling north along the coast to rub shoulders with the rich and famous at the world's most lavish waterfront property: the French Riviera. Oh, and by the way – we’ll be making a pit stop at a traditional French perfumery en route. Later: swap your patatas bravas for hearty French cooking and get ready for tomorrow's adventures.


DAY 4 French Riviera

Hit the beach with the paparazzi posse, or go wild in the designer boutiques in Nice's Old Town. Later: roll with the jet set on a guided tour and see how the 1% live (hint: it involves Ferraris and bathing in caviar). Feeling lucky? Hit the tables at the Monte Carlo Casino and make it rain (or not).


DAY 5 French Riviera to Venice, Italy

Maketh haste to fair Verona, the place where Romeo and Juliet found love. Snap a selfie at Juliet’s balcony and join throngs of lovers leaving notes on the wall (or avoid the crowds and just marvel at the ancient arena). Then: say ciao to Venice from across the lagoon as we check into our campsite, have an Eat Pray Love-worthy relationship with an irresistible Italian (meal) and get pumped for living out our own version of The Italian Job tomorrow.


DAY 6 Venice

You know it as The Floating City, but this place is actually sinking (slowly). Today we’ll check out a who's who of Venice's usual suspects on a guided walking tour (ticking off the likes of St Mark's Square and Accademia Bridge), then jump on a vaporetto to explore the Grand Canal. If that’s not enough, you can also hop on an optional gondola ride. Throw away your map in the afternoon and try to find the world's most epic little bookshop, Libreria Acqua Alta, or just go on a mission to find the perfect gelato.


DAY 7 Venice to Florence

Stop for THAT photo at Pisa, then make your food baby sing as we roll into the land of hearty Tuscan cuisine and birthplace of gelato: Florence. Whip around Santa Maria del Fiore before tucking into amore on a plate. The evening is yours to stroll along the the Arno River and watch the sunset. #Bliss


DAY 8 Florence to Rome

Today, it’s onwards to Rome. Time to give that bucket list a workout! Make like Caesar (the emperor, not the salad) and work up a ‘colossus’ hunger as you pass by the Pantheon, throw your two cents in the Trevi Fountain, sit on the Spanish Steps and visit ancient history's version of the Hunger Games set at the Colosseum. Tonight, you're in Disneyland for foodies. Have fun.


DAY 9 Rome

Create the ultimate Roman Holiday in one day with a whirlwind of Vespas, espresso, two-cheek kisses and pizza the way it's supposed to taste. Count your blessings on an optional tour of the Vatican City, then play ‘I-spy’ with two-and-a-half millennia worth of history. Want more? Then you could always shop till you drop on Via Condotti, head to Capitoline Hill for awesome views of the Roman Forum and Colosseum or just kick back in Piazza Navona for some dolce far niente (delicious idleness).


DAY 10 Rome to Athens, Greece

Play connect the dots with the stars or let the swell rock you to sleep as we ferry our way from from bella Italia to Greece. Restaurants, bars, and cosy cabin rooms will keep you comfortable.


DAY 11 Athens

It doesn’t get feta than this! Orient yourself as you wander around ticking off the likes of the Greek Parliament, Syntagma Square and the Acropolis. Whatever you do, take the day to get lost – you're free until dinner.


DAY 12 Athens to Mykonos

Today we hop on a ferry over to Mykonos (aka 'that island with the cute windmills’). Epic beaches, sinfully good local restaurants and a bustling nightlife. What's not to love?


DAY 13 Mykonos

Free day in para-para-paradise. Loving it? We hope so! Soak up those rays and dive into 50 shades of blue.


DAY 14 Mykonos

You could totally get used to Mykonos’ dreamy backdrop of chalky villages, sky blue churches and laze-worthy beaches. Another free day to spend exactly how you please.


DAY 15 Mykonos to Athens

Today it’s back on the ferry to Athens for a second dose of ancient vibes. Make sure your camera’s charged today – we’re taking you on a driving tour.


DAY 16 Athens

Today our trip comes to an end! But, swap numbers and get planning that next adventure.
