More than 200 years after Napoleon called Piazza San Marco "the most beautiful living room in Europe", this terraced square on the Grand Canal has retained its charm.

Built in 1603 in the early Baroque style, the Bridge of Sighs is in the shape of a house and is closed off to avoid the view of passers-by, with only two small windows opening onto the side of the canal. After the felon"s trial at the Governor"s Palace, he was taken to the dungeon on the east side of the Palace, and when he crossed the bridge, which was like a cage for his body, it was like stepping into a dungeon beforehand, and the prisoner let out a sigh of relief. There is also a legend that a prisoner on death row sighed deeply when he saw his former lover making out with his new lover at the other end of the bridge. The Bridge of Sighs has since become a place for lovers to witness their love, and it is said that if they kiss under the bridge, they will be together for life. The film "A Little Romance" was set here.

Rome → Vatican

Full day
After breakfast, visit Rome, the capital of Italy, nicknamed the ,Eternal City, and the ,City of Many Cities,.
Rome
Rome is the capital of Italy, nicknamed the ,Eternal City, and the ,City of Many Cities, because of its long history. The city"s ancient architecture (the Flavian amphitheatre, the Colosseum, the Colosseum, the Circus, the Temple of Panteion, the public baths of Diocletian, etc.) and artistic treasures.


The Roman Colosseum
Of all the monumental buildings in Rome, the Colosseum is one of the most breathtaking. It was the place where gladiators fought for their lives, prisoners fought hungry lions and was the great symbol of eternal Rome. The British historian Beda Venerabilis (c. 673-735) wrote: ,When the Colosseum stands, Rome will exist; when it falls, Rome will fall.,
Optional items and ticket prices: Colosseum 17€ per person (tickets subject to seasonal changes and without notice)

Constantine"s Arch of Triumph
Constantine"s Arch of Triumph was built to commemorate Constantine the Great"s victory over his rival Maxentius at the Battle of Milvian Bridge (northwest of today"s Villa Borghese) in 312 AD, uniting the Roman Empire. The triumphal arch is 25.7 metres long, 7.4 metres wide and 21 metres high, with three arches, and is made of Roman cement. Most of the sculptures on the Arch are in relief and were collected from the buildings of successive emperors, the most famous of which are the eight reliefs at the top, which were removed from the monument to the Emperor Marcus Aurelius. When Napoleon came to Rome, he saw the Arc de Triomphe and was so impressed that he used it as a model for the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.

Trevi Fountain (Wishing Fountain)
The Trevi Fountain was immortalised by Fellini"s film La Dolce Vita. The fountain"s sculptures of seahorses, one violent and one gentle, symbolise the vagaries of the sea and the wonders of fate - throw a coin into the pool with your left hand around your right shoulder and you"ll return to Rome in search of romance; put in two and you"ll fall in love with an Italian; put in three and you"ll marry him. If you have other wishes, make them all at once.

Vatican
Vatican is the world"s smallest tourist destination, a mere 0.44 square kilometres of land, but full of energy. When the Pope speaks, his words immediately become the creed of more than a billion Catholics around the world, and Vatican is the last of the Papal States. For more than 1,000 years, the Papal States included Rome and much of central Italy, but after the unification of Italy in 1861, the Pope was forced to abandon his territory. Relations between Italy and the landless papacy were always tense until 1929 when Mussolini and Pius D. signed the Lateran Treaty, which formally established the Vatican State. The Vatican Museum is a collection of works of art, mostly from the Renaissance, such as Michelangelo"s Genesis and The Last Supper, and is well worth a visit. Of course, the museum"s architecture is also worthy of praise, in addition to its collections.

Basilica di San Pietro in Vatican
The Basilica di San Pietro in Vatican is not only magnificent, it is also a monument to the gift of Bernini. The deep interior of the church has a capacity of over 60,000 people and houses a wealth of breathtaking artworks, including the Pieta by Michelangelo. In the centre of the church is the 29-metre high baroque canopy designed by Bernini. It is supported by four spiral columns and is cast in Pantheon bronze. The canopy envelops the papal altar, beneath which lies the tomb of San Pietro.

Genoa - Monaco - Nice - Cannes

Full day
After breakfast, travel to the former border between Italy and France and step into another small, wealthy principality - [Monaco], stopping for a short time at [Monte Carlo], a world-famous casino where high society people gather.


Monte Carlo
A city tour of Monte Carlo. Monte Carlo is the main town in the Principality of Monaco and is home to the famous Grand Casino. The Monte Carlo Grand Prix in January and the Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix in May attract many visitors. There is also a music season, opera performances, the International Circus Festival (late January), ballet, and a fireworks extravaganza in July and August to keep the Monte Carlo area alive and well.

Nice
Nice has been described as ,the centre of the world"s rich and famous., The mix of luxurious villas by the sea, expensive shops and artistic flair makes Nice a unique blend of opulence and elegance. The Cimiez district, with its views to the north of the city, was a favourite of the Romans and Queen Victoria. Nice, which literally means a spring that gushes out of the cliffs by the sea, is perhaps also a tribute to it. With the Alps at its back, Nice is the fifth largest city in France and attracts thousands of visitors every year for a relaxing holiday.

Bay of Angels (Avenue of England)
A beautiful avenue lined with palm trees and flower beds along the coast of Nice, its official name is the Promenade des Anglais, popularly known as the English Walk because it was built as a pedestrian walkway with funds raised by the British expatriates, and was inaugurated very formally in 1931 by the Duke of Connaught, the second word of Queen Victoria. If there is a blue moon in this world, it must be in the Bay of Angels in Nice. The Bay of Angels, backed by the Avenue des Anglais, is a classic example of Nice"s blue coast adjacent to the Mediterranean Sea. In the summer months, the blue waters shine with incredible brilliance in the sunlight, the sheer colour of which is as tantalising as the curvature of the bay. Every year, countless tourists gather here, making it one of the few overcrowded holiday destinations in Europe.

Cannes
Cannes, a commune in the south of France, is located in the Alpes-Maritimes region on the Côte d"Azur, near the Mediterranean Sea. Cannes is famous for its beautiful beaches and for the Cannes Film Festival, which takes place every May.

One of the must-see attractions in Cannes is the Avenue of Stars, located near the Palais des Nations, where you can see the handprints of many stars on the pavement, which has now accumulated to over 300. Many film lovers and tourists come here to see the latest films, and the surrounding attractions are not to be missed.

Avignon - Paris

Full day
After breakfast, explore the city that was used as the residence of the Roman Pontiff in the 14th century. In the square beneath this Gothic building, the small palace and the main Roman chapel of the Canons of Notre Dame form an exceptional set of monuments highlighting Avignon"s prominent role in the Christianisation of Europe in the 14th century. Stand on the Broken Bridge in the Rhone and look around to experience the vicissitudes of the old city.

Today is the last day of the tour and you will return at the end of the day.

*Please note that all schedules are subject to change due to weather and road conditions.

Avignon"s Old Town
Many religious may not be aware that they had a capital in the south of France, Avignon. At the end of the 13th century, due to the fierce struggle between the political and religious factions in Rome, which directly threatened the safety of the Pope, Pope Cremant V moved from Rome to Avignon with the support of King Philip IV, and this became the residence of the Pope in the 14th century.


The Papal Palace
Situated on the banks of the Rhone in Avignon, the Papal Palace is the largest and most important medieval Gothic building in Europe. It was built in 1334 and has been home to seven popes in succession. It is a combination of a palace and a castle and was built by order of Pope Benedict 12. During the French Revolution, however, the palace"s interior was almost completely destroyed and plundered, leaving only empty interior space.

Paris-Versailles-Brussels

All day
In the morning, meet in front of McDonald"s at Place d"Italie in the 13th arrondissement of Paris and depart for the famous Palace of Versailles in France. Afterwards, travel to Brussels, the capital of Belgium.


Palace of Versailles
The Palace of Versailles is one of the most magnificent, glorious and beautiful royal gardens in Europe, a symbol of the 17th-century dictatorship; it is one of the finest examples of French classicism. Today it is on the United Nations World Heritage List. Inside the Palace of Versailles, the King"s Interior, the King"s private flats, designed by Gabriel for Louis XV, include the bedroom where Louis XV died, the playroom, the study with its original desk, the conservatory and a beautiful library. The most sumptuous and magnificent of the palace"s rooms is the Hall of Mirrors, with its large west-facing windows opening onto the garden and a large mirror on the east wall, hence the name. The park at Versailles, designed by Le Nôtre, is a masterpiece of architectural decoration, a harmonious combination of different levels of architecture, including an elaborately decorated pond with fountains, flower-bed pavilions and more than 200 sculptures; the Apollo Fountain is of particular interest.


Grand Place Brussels
The Grand Place, the centre of the ancient city of Brussels, was described by the great literary figure Hugo as ,the most beautiful square in the world,. The square is rectangular in shape, 110 metres long and 68 metres wide, with a floor entirely paved with granite. Since 1971, every two years, on the weekend around 15 August, the Place de Bruxelles has been the scene of a great celebration: the laying of a carpet of flowers.

City Hall, Brussels
Of all the buildings on the Grand Place, the most striking is the City Hall, a Goethean building that is a city landmark in Brussels. The building was built in two phases, the larger left half in 1402 and the right half in 1455, when the tower and 96-metre-high spire were built under the auspices of PhilipeleBon. At the top of the tower is a 5-metre-high weathervane, a statue of St Michel, the patron saint of Brussels. Legend has it that the lord of Brussels was saved from death by Saint-Michel, for whom he bestowed the title of patron saint of Brussels. The corridors of the town hall are covered with frescoes. Among the many portraits are those of Belgian monarchs, the kings of Spain, the Netherlands and France, who once ruled over Brussels, and Napoleon.

Peeing children
The Pee-Wee Boy is one of the world"s most famous and adorable children and is a must-see for visitors to Brussels. His 60cm-high statue in bronze was erected in 1619 on the corner of Rudel"Etuve and RuedeChene, in the heart of Brussels.

Munich - Schloss Neuschwanstein - Liechtenstein - Zurich

ll day
Our first stop will be the fantastic Neuschwanstein Castle. Afterwards we will stop in the small stamp country of Liechtenstein: a lovely European country which is smaller than 1% of Shanghai. Arrive in Zurich in the evening.

Neuschwanstein Castle
Built in 1869 on a hilltop in the suburbs of Fuessen, a small town on the southern border of Bavaria, the castle was designed according to the dreams of Bavarian King Ludwig II and took 17 years to build. The castle has a medieval atmosphere and presents an ever-changing face when viewed from different angles.

Exterior tours are available, with self-purchase tickets for entry if you have plenty of time.

Vaduz
Vaduz is situated on the east bank of the Rhine River in a basin surrounded by mountains. It is the capital of Liechtenstein, the political, economic and cultural centre of the country, as well as the country"s largest city and tourist reception centre. The city"s population is just over 5,000. Vaduz was originally an ancient village founded in 1322, destroyed in the Battle of the Swiss Roman Empire in 1499, rebuilt at the beginning of the 16th century and became the capital in 1866. Built in the 9th century in the Gothic style, the castle is the residence of the Grand Duke, Head of State, and is also home to a world-famous private collection of artefacts and works of art collected by successive Grand Dukes.

Liechtenstein
The history of this small European country, named after the first castle owned by the Liechtenstein family, Liechtenstein Castle, now in a semi-derelict state outside Vienna and guarded by a single employee all year round, is as simple as a nursery rhyme compared to the vast and complex history of other European countries.

The Liechtenstein family owned the castle from 1140 until the 13th century, and then again from 1807 onwards. Although other lands were also acquired by the House of Liechtenstein during the Roman era, they were mostly granted by the Habsburg dynasty until 23 January 1719, when Emperor Charles VI announced the merger of Schnellerberg and Vaduz and elevated the status of the House of Liechtenstein to that of a small independent princely state (Fürstentum) with the name of ,Liechtenstein,, Liechtenstein has only since become a truly sovereign member of the Roman Empire.

Zurich
Zurich is Switzerland"s largest city, a centre of business, finance and culture, and has been consistently ranked as one of the world"s most liveable cities. It is also one of the most fashionable and innovative cities in the world. In addition to being trendy, Zurich is a metropolis with the distinctive charm of a small city.

Zurich - Jungfrau - Interlaken - Geneva

All day
Today will be the climax of our trip. The enchanting Jungfrau, the beautiful Lake Interlaken and Geneva, with its watches and the nobility of its lakes.

The Jungfrau
The highest peak in Europe and the most stunning view of the Bernese Oberland, it is known as the ,Queen of the Alps,. At an altitude of 4,158 metres, the Jungfrau spans 18 kilometres and resembles a maiden with long hair, draped in silver, lying serenely among the clouds.


Geneva
If there is one city on earth that truly controls the world, it is Geneva. It is home to the headquarters of international organisations such as the United Nations, the World Health Organisation, the International Red Cross, the International Labour Organisation and many others. 


The stone-paved streets of Geneva"s Old Town stretch out in narrow curves along their edges, as if a silently outstretched arm were trying to take you back to a fairytale of the last century. In the shade of the trees, European-style buildings flicker into and out of sight. Parks are everywhere to be found, where old trees stand tall in the sky, quiet and beautiful. Whether you are in an old city or a new one, you are presented with a beautiful city of blooming flowers and beautiful landscapes. The Great Fountain on Lake Geneva is famous for its fountains.


Lake Geneva
Lake Geneva, also known as Lake Leman, is located on the outskirts of Geneva, bordering eastern France, and is 72 kilometres long and 8 kilometres wide, covering an area of 580 square kilometres, 362 square kilometres in Switzerland and 218 square kilometres in France. The lake"s deepest point is 330 metres and its banks enjoy a mild climate throughout the year. The water of Lake Geneva is joined by snow-capped mountains and blue skies, while thousands of ducks soar over the surface and snow-white swans swim in the water. International organisations such as the headquarters of the International Red Cross and the European headquarters of the United Nations are located on the shores of Lake Geneva, and next to these institutions is a 20-metre-high sculpture of a four-legged wooden chair with one leg broken, which reminds us that a human being suffers every 20 minutes in the world.

Interlaken
Then it"s off to Interlaken, a city between Lakes Thun and Brienz with a view of the majestic peaks of the Alps. With its graceful snow-capped mountains, quiet towns and unforgettable scenery, it is definitely worth stopping for.


The Great Fountain
The 500-litre water jet is the world"s largest man-made fountain, propelled by 130 horsepower of electricity. The water jets reach heights of up to 140 metres in the absence of wind and hold up to 7 tonnes of water in the air. The water is ejected from the nozzles, reaches its peak and then returns to the surface, each turn lasting 16 seconds. It has been praised and eulogised by many famous writers and poets since ancient times. Henry James called it a ,surprisingly blue lake,; Byron likened it to a crystal mirror with ,nourishment and air for contemplation,; and Balzac described it as ,synonymous with love,. The spectacle can be seen from all over Geneva, and today the Grand Fountain is open to the public from the beginning of March to the first Sunday in October, with the exception of rainy days, when it puts on a ,water show, every day.

Palais des Nations
Once the seat of the League of Nations, today it is the headquarters of the United Nations Office in Geneva. It is a symbol of Geneva as an international city and a microcosm of modern world history. The Palais des Nations is situated in the Ariane Park, with a view of Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc, Europe"s highest mountain, from high up in the park. The Palais des Nations consists of four magnificent buildings: the Congress Hall in the centre, the Library on the north side, the New Building and the Council Chamber on the south side. It is a centre for important international conferences and is frequented by visitors all year round.

Flower clock
The Great Flower Clock is an important Geneva landmark: located on the shores of Lake Leman, it changes colour with the seasons, but always remains bright and fragrant. Switzerland is also known as ,the land of gardens, and ,the land of watches,, but what is even more fascinating is that Swiss craftsmen and women have combined the beauty of flowers with the art of watchmaking to create the ,Big Flower Clock,. The "Flower Clock". The Swiss people are so proud of the design of the "Flower Clock" that the map of the city of Geneva uses it as a symbol of the city.

Geneva - Dijon - Paris

All day
After breakfast, depart for an excursion to the following attractions.

Liberty Square
The semi-garden-shaped square designed by Chaumansal in 1685 to welcome King Louis XIV on horseback in the splendour of the magnificent palace is one of the most spectacular royal squares in France. The sculpture was melted down and turned into a cannon during the Revolution of 1792.

Notre Dame de Dijon
Notre Dame de Dijon is located in the centre of Dijon. It is an outstanding example of 13th century Burgundian architecture, inherited from the Roman art period.
When it was first built, Notre Dame was located in the main business district of Dijon. The smallest Gothic church in all of Burgundy, Notre Dame is extremely small due to space constraints. Even so, Notre Dame still has a solemn religious atmosphere. The façade of the church is strikingly decorated with grotesque spouts and rows of columns. The nave is almost 18 metres high, making the space seem tall and spacious without being at all cramped. The famous "Black Virgin" statue in the church commemorates Dijon"s breakthrough of the Swiss siege in 1513.
