Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Paris to Heidelberg. By High-Speed train (TGV) you will get from Paris Est. to Mannheim from where you have a short ride on a local train to nearby Heidelberg. By taxi transfer (included) you will get to your hotel which is located in the historic Old Town.

From Heidelberg Castle from where you have a beautiful view over the city and the Neckar River. From the Castle walk down into the Old Town or take the funicular down into town. Heidelberg with its historic Old Town is a lively city with many students living there. In your tour information sheets you will find a recommendation where to go for a typical dinner.

Day 2: Munich. After breakfast you will take the High-Speed train from Heidelberg to Munich.

Your hotel is located very close to Munich Main Station.

Munich, famous throughout the world, is the Bavarian metropolis, close to the Alps and in the heart of Europe. Where to begin when one wants to name places to see and things to do in this extraordinary city which like few others combines modern life with lively history.
There is Munich's old town where 850 years of history are showing off, there is the Marienplatz (Marien square) where 3 times each day thousands of people are spell bound when the world famous Glockenspiel (carillon) starts it's beautiful song Visit and marvel at the Frauenkirche, the town's landmark, do not miss the Hofbräuhaus and find out why the Münchner (inhabitants of Munich) don't want to miss out on their "Brotzeit" (a meal or snack consisting of bread, cold cut, cheese and so on, usually enjoyed between breakfast and lunch).

Visit the Residence, Nymphenburg Palace and Park, Hall of Fame and all the other sights in Munich which are included in your comprehensive sightseeing package.

Day 3: Oberammergau, Neuschwanstein and Linderhof. Your all day escorted coach tour will first take you to Oberammergau for a photo stop. The coach will then take you to Linderhof Palace, the "Royal Villa" of Ludwig II. Visit this beautiful furnished castle and the park. Admission to Linderhof Palace and Neuschwanstein Castle is included in the price of the tour. The picture of Neuschwanstein is probably present in everybody's mind but certainly for those traveling along the Romantic Road.

Be prepared that reality will surpass all pictures and imaginations: Neuschwanstein seems to be taken out of a fairy tale! Seeing the castle from the outside is unforgettable, a tour of the insight, which was originally built for the one famous inhabitant, will make the picture perfect! But make sure to take some time to explore the castle grounds, the view of Neuschwanstein from the bridge behind the Castle is like no other!

Day 4: Innsbruck. Innsbruck is known as the „Capital of the Alps“. From the Main Station it is just about a 10 minute walk to the Old Town where you find one of the highlights of Innsbruck: the „Goldenes Dachl“ (golden roof). Most of the sights are on the right bank of the River Inn, from which the town takes its name. Innsbrucks Boulevard and central pedestrian area is “Maria-Theresien-Straße” which offers a nice street view with the mountains seen in the back.

The oldest part of town, the Altstadt, is a small area between the river and the semi-circle of road known as the Graben (now a street, but once the route of the old moat that surrounded this part of town). Delivery vehicles are allowed down the cobbled streets at certain times of day, but otherwise pedestrians can wander around uninterrupted. A good orientation point is the Sprungstadion ski jump - built in 1964 for the winter Olympics - that sticks up rather incongruously on the southern side of town.

Day 5: Venice. Take a late evening rail from Innsbruck directly to Venice. Your hotel is in walking distance from the rail station. You have all afternoon and evening to see many of the highlights: the Rialto Bridge which is the oldest bridge across the Grand Canal in Venice, St. Mark´s Square the principal public square of Venice, the Doge´s Palace one of the main landmarks of Venice… and many more! Accommodation in Venice (includes buffet breakfast).

Day 6: Venice. One of the best ways to see the highly pedestrianized city of Venice is by foot, where most of the top attractions are easily within walking distance. Enjoy a free english speaking walking tour and see some of the most famous landmarks: St. Mark’s Square, Marco Polo’s House, the Cannareggio District and much more. You’ll walk through history – from the city’s beginnings as a maritime power to the modern day sightseeing Mecca Venice has become. Accommodation in Venice (includes buffet breakfast).

Day 7: Venice. After breakfast your tour ends.

Note: Pre- and post-tour accommodation in Paris and Venice can be added. The tour can also be booked from Venice to Paris.
