Itinerary

01

Day 1: Arrive Rome

Sun filled days, hot summery nights, traveller you've arrived in Rome for just over two weeks of adventure, ticking off 8 countries as you do it. On arrival set your eyes upon Rome with heightened love and appreciation for the great country she's nestled in. Get a glimpse of the greats, maybe down some pizza and stroll the streets in la mode of leisure knowing you have all day tomorrow to see the sites.

02

Day 2: Rome

We're excited to get started in the Eternal City. With the day to explore, you could explore Pope's house and gawk at the magnitude of the St. Peter's Basilica, then there's free time to explore the ancient ruins including the Colosseum, before taking on the cute cobbled streets. Why not get your fix of Italian food for lunch, like arancini and caprese...because when in Rome! We would suggest taking to thestreets of the Trastevere tonight to rub shoulders with the locals over a glass of red and toast an awesome first full day on the trip.

03

Day 3: Rome to Florence

We leave a little bit of our heart in Rome, but we're not done with Italy just yet, there are two iconic cities to explore before our time in Italy is done. The Duomo Cathedral sits above the city making certain we know we have arrived in Florence. We'll become history buffs on a guided walking tour before we learn the art of leather. Tonight you can choose to begin your Tuscan love affair at an optional dinner in the hillsides - think olives, cured meats, crostini & wine. Later, you could keep it moving back in the city, and experience Florence by night.

04

Day 4: Florence to Venice

Florence Florence, you've been heavenly, but today we have the floating city on our horizons and we can't wait. Pizza, piazzas … we're coming in hot. Venice The floating city of gondolas, canals and pretty bridges - what a splendid way to continue our Italian love affair. A guided walking tour and a gondola ride are up for grabs, or you can always choose to get lost on your own and see where the maze takes you.

05

Day 5: Venice to Ljubljana

Venice we love you, but there's more to see and we're ready. Today brings us another country to tick off our bucklet list, and although the name is hard to pronounce, it packs some serious punch! Although you might find nods to neighbouring countries within Slovenian culture, a distinct identity has evolved from this melody of influences. After our guided walking tour, explore the bohemian art district of Metelkova Mesto, sit by one of the cities atmospheric watercourses & try all the incredible food on offer.

06

Day 6: Ljubljana to Plitvice Lakes

Next up is another day to explore, a new country to conquer, but first something altogether drop dead gorgeous.... A strong introduction to Croatia is on the cards today with cascading teal forest pools at Plitvice Lakes. Why this place is not famous world over as one of the prettiest places in Europe, we have no idea. Wander the cute wooden bridges with waterfalls either side, stopping for plenty of selfies along the route as you contemplate just how good life is and bask in the glory of mother nature.

07

Day 7: Plitvice to Split

We'll hit the road again for our next stop on the agenda, the harbourside city of Split. It's time to get nautical here on the coast of Croatia and explore her sun-soaked, seafront glory. We'll start you off right with a visit to Old Town Split and Diocletian's Palace for a taste of ancient history amongst the cobbled streets. It would be downright wrong not to indulge in some local tastes tonight too, so opt for a traditional Croat dinner to fuel up on before the night ahead. Later no doubt feeling festive, you could hit the town to explore the city by night!

08

Day 8: Depart Split

There you have it, the astonishing beauty of Croatia and its cluster of islands. You probably always imagined you'd be blown away by it, but the new squad of life-long pals will be the real surprise. Round Two: Turkey & Greek Island Odyssey?
