After having our share of temple hopping, noodle slurping and making the rounds of backpacker districts around Asia, we’re up for a new adventure in a different continent. Bust out your passports, we’re ticking off an item from that ever-growing bucket list: Europe!
BACKPACKING Europe begins in the City of Light, Paris. We’ll start our trip at the most iconic landmark of them all: the Eiffel Tower. Then we make our way to Champs Elysees and the Arc de Triomphe. We'll stroll at Montmarte to see the Sacre Coeur and head over to the Notre Dame Cathedral too. Spend your free time in coffee shops or take a scenic tour of the Seine River.
We then take the train to Zurich, Switzerland where you can watch the landscape turn from rustic fields to the snowcapped Swiss Alps. Roam around Zurich's old town and then do an optional tour to Jungfraujoch, which at 3,466 meters above sea level, is also known as the rooftop of Europe! Enjoy your day of winter high up the Swiss Alps!
We then travel to Rome, Italy’s sprawling capital. Soak in the Roman lifestyle as we visit the country’s historical legacies: the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Vatican City and St. Peter’s Basilica, to name a few. Feast on pasta and pizza by a simple trattoria for the perfect Roman holiday.
We’ve got a packed itinerary that will take you through iconic cities and heritage sites, coasting through beautiful landscapes aboard trains and admiring magnificent landmarks on foot. Get ready cause it’s going to be the trip of a lifetime!
