"Often they wrote accounts of their travels, and sketched or painted the scenery along the way, marveling at the culture and history they encountered. Today we have kept the romance of the ‘grand tour’ alive, which is why our 23 day Grand European tour is so reminiscent of those halcyon days of travel. Begin your journey by exploring France, before travelling to Switzerland and Italy. From there visit majestic Lake Bled in Slovenia, followed by a journey to Salzburg, and the beautiful German countryside. Finish your majestic journey in the Netherlands with visits to Maastricht, Holland’s oldest fortified city, and the historic city of Amsterdam."
