Trip Description

Take a quick getaway to Western Europe’s big ones!

If you’re travelling from the UK, make things easier on yourself and start your trip from your local coach or train station before heading to London on a whistlestop train adventure. Your first stop is Paris; you’ll get to wake up to phenomenal views of The City of Lights! Stroll around Parisian Montmartre with its Bohemian artist community and pretty red-canopied cafes. Go classic with the iconic sights of the Louvre, Notre Dame and, of course, the Eiffel Tower! If you’ve seen it all before, head to the Pompidou Centre for your modern art fix, or sip on cocktails around Quai de Jemmapes. We promise that your bank account won’t suffer too much!

Next up is a stay in the iconic lagoon city Venice; have a gondolier or vaporetto take you along the picturesque canalways whilst drinking in architectural wonders like the Doge’s Palace and St Mark’s Basilica. If you fancy something a little different, take a motorboat to the islands of Murano and Burano to watch artisan craftsmen at work and even pick up some unique souvenirs to take home.

Then bring your trip to a close with a couple of nights in magnificent Rome. Soak up the Italian dolce vita in the cosmopolitan capital and one of the world’s most photogenic cities. The Coliseum, the Trevi Fountain and Castel Sant’Angelo, are all dead-cert must-sees, of course! When night falls, the city really comes alive… Head to any of the city’s many unique clubs and jazz bars, and you’ll be guaranteed a great night!

The Route

Itinerary

This 1 week London to Rome route takes you around the major players of Western Europe in a whirl, taking in 3 European cities in 8 days. Most of your journeys will have some flexibility, and you’ll travel during the day except for one night train. You’ll have a mix of shorter and longer trains, but don’t worry – we’ll always book times that allow you to make the most of each city.

London

London may be huge, but Central London can be walked all over, from the quirky pop-up stalls of the south bank to the glitz of the West End and out to Hyde Park. The buzzing cosmopolitan nature of the city probably makes it the most culturally diverse in the world.

Notre-Dame Fire

Paris (2 Nights)

Paris is a byword for romance, a synonym for style and the epitome of elegance. The pride of France and one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Paris needs little introduction, from the Eiffel Tower to the Pont Neuf, bedazzling visitors and oozing charisma at every turn.

Paris Guides
Highlights

  • See the Mona Lisa at the Louvre museum

Venice (2 Nights)

Venice is nothing short of unique, built on mudbanks in the lagoon, having forgone the convenience of cars for the charisma of canals. Getting lost in Venice is part of the fun, and if you’re on foot you’ll only find small backstreets or large piazzas, not a single street in sight.

Venice Guides
Highlights

  • Cross the iconic St Mark’s Square
  • Get lost in the alleyways and canals of the city
  • Ride the vaporetto down the grand canal

We had a fantastic time interrailing around Europe in July 2019 thanks to this company. The communication was excellent, fast replies and no ask was too much. We must have changed our route 5 times and they accommodated everything we asked for. We mainly dealt with Tolly but all of the staff we spoke to were friendly and enthusiastic. Booking through this company took the stress of organising away from us. All of the documents arrived well in advance of our start date, and the personalised booklet they include with train times/maps/tips/phrases is a game-changer! So unique and we were constantly using it to refer to. We had never stayed in a hostel before this and we were slightly apprehensive but all of the hostels were spotless, great atmosphere and in safe areas - we requested a private dorm room and this was sorted for us immediately. They even upgraded us to some hotels when it made no difference to the price! I priced the trip up independently and Euroventure was the same price/cheaper in some respects. Definitely recommend and will be booking again!

I can not thank these guys enough. I'm a solo traveler about to start a month travels round Europe. I was so confused with the different options and what to do but they were amazing. They organised everything for me and I paid it up monthly. As promised tickets arrived 2 weeks before. Amy was amazing thank you for your help. The travel pack included is incredible so much detail and I booked a good few excursions as well because I know I'm safe with the company Already planning next year's!!.

Did the 3 week Eastern Europe tour and it was amazing! Couldn't recommend Euroventure enough! Took all the hassle out of travelling, particularly for someone as unorganised as I am! All the hostels were clean, comfortable and friendly. Our tour guide Dave was great too! Knew all the good places to go to, even gave us a free walking tour in Prague. Couldn't do enough for us. Thanks everyone involved!

Just recently got back from the Iron Curtain tour and already have post tour blues! I enjoyed the trip immensely, met some fab people and felt like I laughed the whole week. I liked using euroventure as having everything planned out in advance took all the stress away compared to if I planned it myself. Big shout out to our tour leader David who was great to hang out with. He made the transitions between places and cities very easy and stress free. His sarcastic wit and humour made my week. He also had great knowledge on the sights we visited. The itinerary was jam packed with activities to do. Would highly recommend using Euroventure, will definitely be using them again!

Questions & Answers

Don't see the answer you're looking for?

Question:
What do I get when I book a package?
Answer:
You get all train travel and accommodation included in the price. That is, all train travel between the first city and last city on the trip and accommodation in the best hostels in each city, or in  hotels if you choose this option. For loop trips you also get return train and Eurostar travel from anywhere in the UK to the continent and back, but flights are not included in any of our packages because we do not have airline partnerships. You get breakfast in some hostels too, and can add this as an extra in hotels. You'll also get a detailed itinerary telling you exactly what trains to get and directions to the hostels. So all that's left for you to purchase is flights (if required), travel insurance and spending money.
