Swiss Alps to Milan, Italy

We’ll make a pit stop in Liechtenstein before before arriving in fashion's capital: Milan. Home to Gucci, Versace, Prada, Armani and Dolce & Gabbana, you'd think the fashion would be the best looking part of the city. Wrong. The Duomo is the fifth largest Christian church in the world. It took 600 years to build (they're still not finished), it has over 3,400 statues and is prettier than the entire Victoria's Secret fashion show lineup. See it and more on an afternoon walking tour.

Rome is where the heart is. Visit the world’s smallest country aka Vatican City (optional), hang with the locals, or eat as much pizza and gelato as you can possibly handle. Question is, how many gelato flavours can you try during your time here? Challenge accepted! Let’s go.

Rome to Venice

First, visit Juliet’s balcony in Verona to join the lovers leaving notes on the wall. Then: Venice. Home to the Grand Canal, pretty Venetian masks and over 400 bridges. Get ready to say ‘wow’ like 100 times.

Burn off some of those calories by exploring the city on foot this morning. Then cue singing men in water limos taking you down a labyrinth of canals. That’s right, you’re heading out on a gondola ride with the crew! This afternoon is all yours to do whatever you like. Don’t miss the Doge's Palace, cross the Rialto Bridge and shop for Carnevale masks. There’s so much going on here. Did we mention it’s beautiful?

Red Bull was born here. So channel your inner adrenalin junkie and have a go at skiing or snowboarding (optional). Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, there’s slopes for all levels. You’ll get the hang of it soon enough! Prefer the après ski action? You won’t be short of options that’s for sure. Snowsports not your thing?

   Meals:   Breakfast,

  Hotel:  None

Austrian Alps

Survived the après ski and wanna go again? Well you’re in luck. There’s more optional skiing and snowboarding on the cards today if you want it. Rather rest up and take it easy? Go for it. That’s what ski chalets are for.

   Meals:   Breakfast,

  Hotel:  None

This morning we’ll visit the former concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau. Take time to reflect before arriving into fairytale Ceský Krumlov. The entire place is UNESCO World Heritage-listed so prepare to be wowed. Be sure to visit the castle while you’re here. After a stroll around town to get your bearings with the crew, embrace the wintry vibe while you tuck into a traditional Czech meal for dinner tonight.

   Meals:   Breakfast, Dinner

  Hotel:  None

Ceský Krumlov to Prague

Prague is all about the charm. Fuel up on trdelník (pastry deliciousness) before a walking tour among grand spires and cobblestone streets.

   Meals:   Breakfast, Dinner

  Hotel:  None

Prague

You’ve got a whole free day to tick off everything you didn’t get the chance to do yesterday. A trip to Prague wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the John Lennon Wall. Want more history? You could always stop by the National Museum or Communist Museum or get a taste of the quirky local culture at a marionette puppet opera (you gotta see it to believe it). Want more? Snap a selfie at Prague's own Eiffel Tower, visit The Museum of Miniatures, eat roast pork from one of the street vendors lining Old Town Square and drink beer. Really. Good. Beer.
