Among the many highlights of this tour is a drive along the Amalfi Coast, one of Italy's most beautiful coastlines.

Be delighted as you take a jetfoil from Sorrento to the Isle of Capri, a pretty town where you can explore the little shops and local cafés. Relax and enjoy Nice, a beautiful French Riviera resort. Be the first of your friends to enjoy guided sightseeing of Zagreb, Croatia's capital, where you will see its must-see attractions, such as the cathedral, the tallest building in Croatia.

You'll visit some of Europe's most famous museums, including the Prado in Madrid, with one of the world’s finest art collections; the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao; and the Vatican Museums in Rome. You'll also experience spectacular scenery, including a Rhine cruise along the most scenic part of the Rhine River; the Rhine Falls, Europe's largest waterfall; spectacular drives along the Italian and French Rivieras; and much more.
