DAY 1 – ARRIVE IN PARIS
Welcome to the The City of Light! When you arrive, check into your hotel and begin exploring the charms of Paris. 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.

 DAY 2 – PARIS
There is so much to see and do in the city that your options are seemingly endless. Today, 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 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. 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. Complete the day with dinner at the Eiffel Tower and a cruise on the Seine (Overnight Paris) B

 DAY 3 – PARIS TO MUNICH

Visit Marienplatz (the main square) and get a 360 view of Munich from St. Peter’s Church or the tower from the medieval Old Town Hall. If you’re looking for a great spot to picnic, go to Olympiapark. Built for the Summer Olympics in 1972, its lakes and green rolling hills make for the perfect atmosphere to relax. Spend your evening enjoying some traditional Bavarian cuisine, such as schweinshaxe (tender roasted pig knuckle and potato), wurst and sauerkraut, or spaetzle, which is handmade egg noodles served with delicious Alpine cheese, fried onions, and chives.

Your informative driver will guide you through the castle, so you won’t miss a thing one back 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. .  (Overnight in Munich) B

 DAY 5 - 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 hop on hop off ticket. 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. Another historical site to see is the Reichtag, where the Parliament sits. It’s glass dome is meant to represent the capital’s political transparency. Your first day is sure to be exciting!

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.
