London, United Kingdom

Perhaps the only word that can completely reflect the essence of good old London is "diversity". The variety of cultures, mentalities, and lifestyles all turn London into a quaint blend of the old and the new, simply awing travelers from around the globe. The towers of urban business centers and red double-deckers bustling here and there harmoniously coexist with the 700-year-old Westminster Abbey and the iconic Big Ben that's gracefully set by the River Thames, altogether intertwining into one quite spectacular skyline! However, despite successfully keeping up with the times, lordly London proudly preserves its traditions and unique spirit. The solemn architecture of the Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London, the imposing grandeur of the St. Paul’s Cathedral, and the strict geometry of the famed Hyde Park instantly resemble the honorary status of London as the capital of the state and the residence of the royal family. But don’t worry, London has something for everyone to fall in love with, and, be sure, this love will be mutual!...

Paris, France

The dream city, the world capital of romance, the instantly recognized French classic, the destination that's "always a good idea" - the list of epithets to inimitable Paris is simply everlasting! When referring to town, the imagination instantly draws the graceful silhouette of the Eiffel Tower majestically dominating the Champ de Mars, monument-lined boulevards with croissant-scented bistros, and adorable tour boats peacefully floating down the Seine. Paris is all about the good old classics like the majestic Notre Dame, about the iconic architecture of the Palace of Versailles, about chic boutiques, tastefully decorated homes, and, of course, the haute French cuisine and top-class Michelin-starred restaurants. Plus, Paris has been home and an infinite source of inspiration for hundreds of artists, creators, and philosophers who've set their hearts on the Montmartre district and turned the city into one of the planet's greatest art repositories, topped by the incomparable Louvre. We bet you have at least once dreamt to immerse in the exceptional atmosphere of sparkling Paris and to learn the art of living a-la French, haven't you?...

Milan, Italy

The world's fashion capital, artistic Milan, is justly considered one of the brightest highlights of the Italian north. Having gained the reputation of a shopping paradise where creativity and good taste are big businesses (which is, indeed, true), Milan also preserves the shades of its ancient and intriguing history as it was once the capital of the Roman Empire and has seen the ruling of Caesar, Napoleon, and Mussolini. The first attraction associated with this gorgeous metropolis is the incredible Milan Duomo, embodying all the splendor of human fantasy in its stunning Gothic spires and fancy facades, decorated with more than 3 thousand sculptures! For a touch of art, pay a visit to the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie housing Leonardo da Vinci's legendary fresco "The Last Supper", enjoy a brilliant show in the celebrated Scala Theater, don't miss out on some high-end shopping at the glorious Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, and check out some of the most famed Milan museums. You won't be disappointed, for sure!...
  • Day By Day

    Day 7: Arrival
    Welcome to Milan, the fashion capital of Italy! Upon arrival to Milan you are met by your driver and taken to your downtown hotel.

    Day 8: Exploring  Milan & La Scala Theatre
    Did you know that opera originated in Italy at the end of the 16th century? During the day you get closer to the opera's roots as you explore one of the world's leading opera houses in the country of opera's origin!

    Following breakfast, you meet your guide in the hotel lobby and have a 4-hour walking tour of Milan. You start with a visit to the world-known Milan Duomo, the Gothic cathedral and the highest sight in the city which took about six centuries to build. Then you walk through nearby-located Galleria Vittorio Emanuele and reach the famous La Scala Theatre. Prepare to be wowed by the prestigious Milan opera house while visiting its foyer, the royal box, the historic boxes and even the backstage.

    You continue to the picturesque Brera district to feel the historical atmosphere of the city. Explore the public areas with stories of its 15th-century owners ringing in your ears. Afterward, you make a stop at Castello Sforzesco to see history and style combined with Milanese flair.

    Note: Milan Cathedral is a sacred religious site thus the dress code for visiting it is applied just as when you visit any church in Italy: no shorts – no uncovered knees and shoulders, no backpacks.

    Note: The unique treasure of Milan - Leonardo da Vinci’s legendary fresco “The Last Supper” located in the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie is not included in the city tour due to its limited availability. Please, ask your destination specialist about available tickets for your tour date.
