Italy, France, Spain
From Rome, centre of the ancient world, through the home of the Renaissance, Spain's buzzing cities to Paris one of the world's most incredible hubs for art, culture and beauty.
Begin in Rome and explore the Eternal City before Florence home of the Renaissance. Get your cheesy photo of the Leaning Tower of Pisa before arriving in La Spezia, gateway to the Cinque Terre, for some serious chill out time. Squeeze in some hot beaches in the French Riviera before crossing the border into Spain for the madness of Barcelona! Next stop Valencia, before heading to the heart of the country in Madrid. Move on up to the party town of San Sebastian then finish your trip surfing in Biarritz, a castle tour of the Loire Valley near Tours and finally Paris, one of the truly great cities of the world.
great way to travel on my own but still having guides along the way and opportunities to meet lots of people"
