More about France

France is one of the oldest nations on earth, the largest in the EU and also the most popular with tourists. People flock to its iconic sites, medieval cities, alpine mountains and Mediterranean beaches. It's a must to visit the amazing art galleries and museums of Paris, but make sure you allow time for people watching in a chic cafe. Visit the French Riviera to see how the rich and famous live, or take the world's highest cable car to get a breathtaking view of Mont Blanc. Try some of the 1600 varieties of cheese produced in France, but don't turn the accompanying baguette upside down, the French believe that brings bad luck!

More about Italy

What's not to love about Italy! From its ancient monuments and treasure-laden museums, to iconic cities, stunning coastal villages and magnificent mountain ranges. And of course the cuisine! You could literally eat your way from Rome to Florence and Venice. Gelato ice cream was invented in Italy and there are over 200 shapes for Italian pasta. Pizza was first created in Napoli in 1860 and yes, calzone is simply folded up pizza!

More about Spain

Spain occupies about 85% of Europe's Iberian Peninsula. The vibrant country boasts varied and dramatic highlights. From spectacular alpine ranges and gorgeous beaches, to medieval castles, impressive galleries, historic sites and charming towns - there's so much to explore and experience in Spain! The second-largest country in Europe has around 3000 documented beaches, many of which remain untouched. Marvel at Spain's unique blend of Gothic and Islamic architecture and witness the way all forms of art are embraced by the locals. Also a big tip for visitors, don't expect to do much between 1pm and 5pm. This is when much of the country takes a nap, or its famous 'siesta' time, so that they can enjoy dining on tapas and bar hopping until the early hours.
Live the good life in Italy on an escorted tour that takes you to the must-see sights and hidden gems. Then cruise to Palma de Mallorca, Barcelona, Cannes, Genoa and La Spezia on the Cinque Terre. Enjoy a relaxed pace, quality inclusions and stunning cruise experience aboard elegant MSC Seaview. Flights are included from Australia.
