European Escape with London (KFL)

10 Day Tour from Rome to London

2018 Tour Details

Escape to Europe’s most popular destinations during the low-season and bypass the crowds, the swarm of tourists, and the high-season prices! Rome, Florence, Venice, Lucerne, Paris, and London—these exciting and vibrant cities await you on this thrilling European tour. Guided sightseeing tours will highlight the must-see attractions, including the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel in Rome; the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, where you will see Michelangelo’s famous David; the Chapel Bridge in Lucerne, dating back to the 14th century; and the Arc de Triomphe at the top of the Champs-Elysées in Paris.

Other highlights of this European tour are a special welcome dinner at a local restaurant in Rome, a pasta dinner in Venice, and a stop in the resort of Lugano with its sparkling lake surrounded by the Alps, and a thrilling ride on the Eurostar train from Paris to London.

But that’s not all…throughout this European Escape, Globus has arranged VIP access for you. That means you won’t have to wait in long lines to see the amazing Colosseum in Rome or to enter the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence. We’ve worked hard behind-the-scenes to minimize the lines and wait times, so you can maximize the fun. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the treasures of Europe at a price that screams “Let’s go!”
