Daily Itinerary:

DAY 1 – PARIS
Welcome to Paris! When you arrive, check into your hotel and begin exploring the charms of the city with your included 72-hour Paris Pass. 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. If you have time to fit in one more stop today, go to Sacré-Cœur Basilica, the Roman Catholic church perched atop Montmartre. On Sundays, you can listen to the organ being played during Vespers and Mass, and from the church’s steps, you’ll be offered one of Paris’ most spectacular panoramas alongside musicians and hillside picnickers. In the evening, find an authentic Parisian restaurant to enjoy dinner. (Overnight in Paris) B

DAY 2 – PARIS
After breakfast, continue your sightseeing adventures throughout the city. Your included Paris Pass gives you free entry to the top museums and monuments like the Louvre, Musee d’Orsay, Centre Pompidou, Palace of Versailles, Montparnasse Tower, and so much more! With so much to do, see, and experience, there’s no telling what kind of memories you’ll make today! Other must-see places include Cathédrale de Notre-Dame, 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 in Paris) B

DAY 3 – PARIS
Enjoy breakfast, then continue using your Paris Pass to visit all the popular attractions you didn’t get a chance to during your stay. There is so much to see and do in the city that your options are seemingly endless. You could also spend the day enjoying all 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 4 – PARIS TO BRUSSELS
Following breakfast, take a direct Thalys train from Paris to Brussels. When you arrive, check into your hotel and spend the rest of the day and evening exploring the city at your leisure.

Visit the Grand-Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with its main market square, local bars, and cafes.

Other worthwhile stops include Hôtel de Ville, Place du Châtelain Market, and Musée du Cinquantenaire’s collection of ancient Egyptian sarcophagi and Meso-American masks. (Overnight in Brussels) B

Today, enjoy breakfast and then continue getting to know this metropolis. Visit the Église Notre-Dame du Sablon in the Royal Quarter, the Napoleon III-styled palace of St-Gilles Town Hall, or Place du Jeu-de-Balle Flea Market for the quintessential Marolles experience. And no trip to Brussels would be complete without trying a pistolet (small round bread filled with delicacies) and some chocolate! At the Belgian Chocolate Village—literally a chocolate museum—you’ll can experience a tasting room, workshop, and tropical greenhouse with cacao trees. For a mesmerizing array of cheeses, head to Crèmerie De Linkebeek in Grand Palace & Îlot Sacré. (Overnight in Brussels) B

After breakfast, take a direct Thalys train from Brussels to Amsterdam. When you arrive, check into your hotel and start exploring Europe’s most diverse destination with your included 72-hour public transport ticket.

Craving something sweet and delicious? Try Amsterdam’s famous stroopwafel, which is made from two thin layers of grilled waffles stuck together with a caramel-like syrup! (Overnight in Amsterdam)
