Your itinerary

Day 1

Fly direct to Amsterdam. On arrival join the private transfer to your hotel where you will spend 3 nights.

Day 2

Amsterdam: Amsterdam is home to a number of world famous museums, which make it perfect if you are looking for a cultural short break.  Relive the moving story of Anne Frank and her family with a visit to Anne Frank's House. The Rijksmuseum is Amsterdam's largest and most popular museum and another “must see” during your time in Amsterdam.

Day 3

Amsterdam: A natural starting point on any Amsterdam itinerary, Dam Square is a popular meeting place and home to a number of well-known city landmarks in amongst the shops, cafés and restaurants. Dominating the square is the Koninklijk (Royal) Palace, no longer a royal residence but still used for official functions, opposite which is the National Monument commemorating those lost in World War II.

Day 4

Make your own way to the railway station for the journey by rail to Paris. The journey takes a little over 3 hours. On arrival make your own way to your hotel where you will spend 3 nights.

Day 5

Paris: It would be hard to miss such famous sights as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Nôtre Dame and the Sacré Coeur.  Stroll along the Champs Elysées and wander through the Jardin des Tuileries, a peaceful haven right in the centre of the city. Idle away a few hours in the labyrinth of alleyways and back streets which make up the charming area of Montmartre. At night perhaps enjoy a cruise on the River Seine and gasp as you take in the wonder of Paris by night with all the monuments illuminated.

Day 6

Paris: A visit to the Chateau of Versailles is an unforgettable experience. Lying just 12 miles south-west of the capital and set amid magnificently landscaped formal gardens, this splendid palace was built in the mid-17th century during the reign of Louis XIV – the Sun King.  The Chateau of Versailles can be reached by catching an RER train from central Paris.

Day 7

Join the transfer to Paris airport for the return flight to the UK.
