Globus European Tapestry(HA)

14 days from Amsterdam to Paris 
A tapestry takes distinct colors and threads, and weaves them together into a beautiful design. That’s exactly what this European tour—European Tapestry—does. It weaves together the distinct cities, cultures, landscapes, and food of seven countries to make a beautiful vacation to Europe. You’ll start with sightseeing and a canal cruise in Amsterdam and end with sightseeing and a cruise on the River Seine in Paris. In between, you’ll see some of Europe’s must-see attractions, such as the Lion Monument in Lucerne; St. Mark’s Square in Venice; the Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums in Rome; Signoria Square in Florence, the center of the city's political life since the 14th century; and the amazing Leaning Tower in Pisa.

You’re welcome to sample beer at a local café in Heidelberg, take a romantic Rhine cruise past castle-crested cliffs and terraced vineyards, learn about woodcarving from a local woodcarver in Germany’s Black Forest and taste the traditional Black Forest Cake, enjoy a special dinner to try out local specialties in Venice, and a highlight of this European tour is an overnight stay in Monte Carlo. Also included is an overnight stay in Lyon – France’s second-largest city where you will enjoy a panoramic view of the old town from Fourvière Hill.

You’ll have VIP access in this guided tour of Europe to eliminate waiting in long lines at places such as the Vatican Museums in Rome. Instead, you’ll be inside the attractions and enjoying this amazing vacation. It’s just one more way this European guided tour is sure to delight!
