European Tapestry with London (HAT)

16 Day Tour from Amsterdam to London

2016 Tour Details View 2017 Tour Details »

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 eight countries to make a beautiful vacation to Europe. You’ll start with sightseeing and a canal cruise in Amsterdam and end with sightseeing and leisure time in London. 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 Colosseum, Roman Forum, Sistine Chapel, and Vatican Museums in Rome; Signoria Square in Florence, the center of the city's political life since the 14th century; the amazing Leaning Tower in Pisa; and the Eiffel Tower, where you’ll ride an elevator to the second floor for spectacular views of Paris.

But that’s not all. You’ll have a 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, enjoy a special dinner to try out local specialties in Venice, and hear about perfume-making at a perfume factory in Èze. Plus, a highlight of this European tour is an excursion from Nice to St. Paul de Vence, a picturesque hilltop village where you can enjoy the local cafés, watch the locals play lawn bowling, explore the art galleries, or sample the local wine. In Nice, relax as you admire the blue Mediterranean Sea. Thrilling train rides on the high-speed TGV and the Eurostar trains are included, as well as guided sightseeing in London.

Globus has worked hard behind the scenes to ensure your time and fun is maximized. That’s why we’ve included VIP access in this tour of Europe. That means that rather than waiting in long lines at places such as the Colosseum in Rome, you’ll be inside the attractions and enjoying this amazing vacation. It’s just one more way this European tour is sure to delight!
