About the tour

While Europe is full of "hidden gems" and hip, unconventional destinations, Rome, Paris, and London remain the heavyweights of the continent. There's a reason that these cities are perennial favorites. They're filled with gorgeous, distinctive architecture and iconic landmarks like Big Ben, the Eiffel Tower, and the Colosseum. They're fixtures in literature and film. They're absolutely steeped in history. In its own way, each city inspires a deep-seated sense of romance and stirs new curiosity in its visitors. On this 10-day, Locally-Hosted tour, you'll be free to explore Rome's piazzas, Paris' quartiers, and London's boroughs on your own terms. With transportation and hotel accommodations expertly arranged, and the services and advice of Local Hosts, your focus can stay on making the most of your classic European vacation.

All guests must provide proof of full vaccination, negative COVID-19 test, or documentation of recovery in order to travel.
