Germany, Italy and Switzerland, three of Europe’s most scenic countries and the ultimate end of summer escape. This trip is a bucket list in itself and serves up the best of Central Europe with an adventure around every corner.
1. Hit four countries in just 10 days
In just 10 days, experience four countries’ worth of culture, food, nightlife and scenery. From the canals of Venice to the Swiss Alps in Lucerne to beer gardens in Munich, you’ll cross off Central Europe’s must-do and must-see bucket list items. No matter your travel preference, there is something for everyone on this trip.
2. Stay hungry, my friends
Since you’re hitting four unique countries, the food variety will not disappoint. Chow on hearty wiener schnitzel and down Bavarian beers in Germany. Twirl the perfect homemade pasta followed by a heaping scoop of gelato in Venice. Then, master the art of fondue-dipping in Switzerland. The palate-pleasers are endless; stay hungry, my friends.
3. Fresh air thrills!
It doesn’t get more beautiful than the views over the snow-capped Swiss Alps. Take in breathtaking vistas of Lake Lucerne set against an Alpine backdrop. The most majestic photo ops are atop Mt. Pilatus and Mt. Rigi, both nearby and accessible via mountainside funicular. It makes for an unforgettable afternoon.
4. Endless history
From the World Wars to the Cold War, fairytale castles and Italian waterways, each city has its own story to tell. Learn about the captivating Neuschwanstein Castle and the crazy king behind the tale. Stop at Juliet’s Balcony, where Shakespeare found inspiration in Verona. Take in views of St. Mark’s Basilica from the inside out. Between the incredible experiences and even more incredible beers, you’ll come away with knowledge and stories to last a lifetime.
