DAY 3 – LONDON
A relaxed day out exploring Oxford and the quintessential villages of the Cotswold’s. You head north west out of London, passing close to Pinewood Film Studios and through the Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The picturesque countryside here is stunning. Your first stop is Oxford, where you have time to explore the precincts of the many colleges, climb one of the vantage points to take in the skyline, or see the art and antiquities collections in the Ashmolean Museum. Next you visit Bampton, a village with a long association with traditional Morris Dancing. You can explore the magnificent parish church of St Mary, where many iconic scenes from Downton Abbey were filmed. Followed by a stop in Burford, the ‘Gateway to the Cotswold’s’. You have time to take in the local charm and hospitality; and if you’re thirsty you could have a traditional English ‘Afternoon Tea’. Finally, you make the short journey to Bibury, described by William Morris as the prettiest village in England, and the place that Henry T Ford wished to dismantle and ship back to the USA. (Overnight London) B 

DAY 4 – LONDON TO PARIS 
Today board the Eurostar direct to Paris and enjoy the fast, comfortable ride across the Channel. Once to Paris, check into your hotel and begin exploring the many charms of Paris. Use your 2-day Paris Pass to make the most of your stay in the city, with access and fast-track entry to over 60 attractions and tours, including the Louvre, Notre Dame Cathedral and many more. Why not start with visiting the iconic Eiffel Tower in the Champ de Mars park? Towering more than 1,000 feet, the Eiffel Tower is one of the world’s most photographed attractions. Then there’s the Champs-Élysées, the most famous avenue in the city—and perhaps more famous than New York’s Times Square or London's Piccadilly Circus. Also take time to discover the delicious Parisian cuisine, such as steak-frites, fresh baguettes, croque-monsieur (a crispy ham and cheese sandwich with Béchamel sauce), duck confit, jambon-beurre (fresh half-baguette with cool butter and garnished with cooked ham and optional cornichons) or street-stand crêpes. (Overnight in Paris) B

DAY 5 – PARIS 
There is so much to see and do in the city that your options are seemingly endless. Perhaps visit Musée Picasso, home to the world’s largest public collection of Picasso’s works, stroll through Père Lachaise (Oscar Wilde, Edith Piaf, Frédéric Chopin, and Jim Morrison are buried here), and make a stop at the beautiful Parc des Buttes Chaumont, located in the 19th arrondissement (district). Other must-see places include Marché des Enfants Rouges, Ile Saint-Louis for shopping, and Rue des Martyrs, Paris’ 200-year-old bustling street market packed with fromageries, boulangeries, and boucheries. (Overnight Paris) B 

DAY 6 – PARIS 
Enjoy another day in Paris at your leisure. Before your final evening at the iconic Moulin Rouge in Paris, where you’ll enjoy a 3-course dinner with wine while you watch the show ‘Feerie.’ As the dancers on stage perform the famous cancan, you’ll dine on quintessential French dishes like foie gras and fine seafood.

DAY 8 – MUNICH 
Have breakfast and then continue seeing the sights and exploring the city of Munich! Since Oktoberfest is year-round here, you shouldn’t be surprised that it is also home to one of the most famous beer gardens, Hofbräuhaus am Platzl, which holds approximately 4,500 people! Enjoy an ice-cold beer with some weisswurst (white veal sausage) or obaztda and brezel (creamy cheese and pretzel). Visit Schloss Nymphenburg Palace, Peterskirche (the oldest church in the city at Rindermarkt), and stroll the fashionable and museum-lined Maximilianstrasse, the Fifth Avenue of Munich. Make a stop at the city center of Karlplatz and take a self-guided tour to learn about 400 years of history at the opulent Munich Residenz palace. (Overnight in Munich) B 

DAY 9 - MUNICH 
Travel from Munich to Bavaria’s Neuschwanstein Castle on this day trip that includes round-trip transportation by train. Often known as Germany’s "Cinderella castle," Neuschwanstein was the inspiration for a different Disney story, the ‘Sleeping Beauty’ castle at Disneyland. Take a guided tour of the castle and hear stories about the "Mad" King Ludwig II, who commissioned it. The entrance fee is not included, but skip-the-line access is, so you won’t wait in the main admission queue. (Overnight in Munich) B 

DAY 10 - MUNICH TO BERLIN 
Enjoy breakfast this morning and then take a highspeed ICE train from Munich into Berlin, the capital of Germany. When you arrive, check into your hotel and immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and experiences of this wonderful destination using your 48-hour Berlin City Card. Maybe your first stop could be the Brandenburg Gate? A symbol of separation between East and West Berlin, it’s one of the most significant landmarks in the city. Your first day is sure to be exciting! (Overnight in Berlin) B 

DAY 11 – BERLIN 
After breakfast, continue seeing the sights of Berlin. Go museum-hopping, get a 360-degree view of the city from the Berlin TV Tower, visit the neo-renaissance Berlin Cathedral on Museum Island, or make a trip to the holocaust memorial just south of the Brandenburg Gate. If you want to learn more about the history of the Berlin Wall, visit the Gedenkstätte Berliner Mauer?, which stretches along Bernauer Strasse. Worth checking out are also the AquaDom in the Radisson Blu hotel lobby (the world’s largest free-standing aquarium), Checkpoint Charlie, and the second largest botanical garden in the world. (Overnight in Berlin) B 

DAY 12 – BERLIN 
Continue discovering the sights of Berlin at your leisure. Another historical site to see is the Reichtag, where the Parliament sits. Its glass dome is meant to represent the capital’s political transparency. For dinner, why not try the signature fast food dish in Berlin - curry-wurst – with a final glass (or two) of beer.
