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!

- Watch a show at one of many West End Theatres

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
- 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

- Get lost in the alleyways and canals of the city
- Ride the vaporetto down the grand canal
Rome (2 Nights)
Home to endless culture, stunning architecture and buzzing nightlife, Rome is one of the classic quintessentially European hubs to tick off your travel checklist. Take in the unreal food, fascinating culture, laidback lifestyle and experience it all!Rome Guides

Euro venture planned out recent trip though Europe. Our trip was well planned, communicated and completely what we asked for, we had a fantastic time. We enjoyed the train travel, timing was perfect and trains were easy to find with the directions given.

I can't recommend Euroventure highly enough. In August 2019 I went on the 3 Week: Islandbound adventure. From my first approach to Euroventure to my return from my trip they were absolutely brilliant. The organisation of transfers and accommodation was first class. Before my trip any concerns or questions I had were responded to almost immediately. I fully intend to book my next adventure with them.

Just returned from my month long trip round Europe. The Euroventure team tailored my trip to my every need, the customer service during the booking process was excellent and any changes or queries I had were quickly and efficiently dealt with. My trip was amazing, the hostels booked were great, the team were responsive when I got lost on the trains in Poland and the travel book provided was unbelievably helpful. I could not have hoped for a better experience and would highly recommend Euroventure to anyone planning a trip. Cannot wait to start planning my next trip with them!
