- 2-night standard accommodations in London at the Huttons Hotel or similar

Seeing as its history dates back 2,000 years, England's capital city has a parade of landmarks: Westminster Abbey, the site of royal weddings since 1100 AD; the crosswalk where the Beatles traversed Abbey Road; and Kensington Palace, where Prince William, Kate Middleton, and Baby George reside. Despite pervading stereotypes about British food's low quality, according to Fodor's, the city rivals Tokyo, New York, and Paris as one of the best places to eat on the planet.
- The London Eye: Get a bird's-eye view of the city and the Thames River from a glass-encased pod that rises more than 400 feet in the air.
- Go shopping on the West End's Regent Street, where you'll find more than 100 brands, including the world's largest Burberry store, tucked between galleries and spas. This neighborhood is also home to the Cafe Royal, once frequented by Oscar Wilde.
- Eat like a local: Top off your fish and chips with salt and vinegar, and pop into a neighborhood pub—London is home to roughly 7,000 of them.
You'll take a train to Paris, where you'll have plenty of time to check out main attractions such as the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, and the Arc de Triomphe. When crafting an itinerary, don't overlook the Left Bank, set along the Seine River; its cafes and bookstores inspired both Hemingway and Picasso. It's also worth it to carve out time to visit the Moulin Rouge and see its dancers perform a raucous can-can.
- Famous artworks: Head to the Louvre to see the Mona Lisa and Winged Victory, or check out the Musee d'Orsay's collection of impressionistic artworks by Renoir and Manet.
- Avenue des Champs-Élysées is one of the world’s most iconic thoroughfares. Cafés, cinemas, and luxury shops pepper the pedestrian-friendly street; it's also sandwiched between major architectural sites the Luxor Obelisk and Arc de Triomphe.
- Eat like a local: Snack on handmade crepes and macarons, which are tiny, filled meringue sandwiches (not to be confused with American coconut macaroons).
Your final stop is Rome, Italy's capital city and a treasure trove of ancient history. The Roman Forum—which served as the center of ancient Rome—is just a short walk from the Colosseum, the Pantheon, and Circo Massimo, a crumbling stone-and-marble arena that hosted chariot races in ancient times. Hop on Rome’s easy-to-use subway system to explore attractions outside of the ancient city center, such as the Spanish Steps or the Vatican Museums, which house priceless works by Fra Angelico, Raphael, and Caravaggio.
- Basilica of St. John Lateran: Commissioned by Constantine the Great, this basilica is the oldest Christian church in the world. A tour of the massive church will reveal a 14th-century Gothic ciborium, a manicured cloister, and numerous paintings and ceiling murals.
- Toss a coin into Trevi Fountain to ensure a return trip to Rome. According to local lore, it must be thrown over your left shoulder with your right hand, while keeping your back to the fountain.
- Eat like a local: Try coda alla vaccinara, which is tender oxtail stewed in tomato sauce. And you can't go wrong with the classics, such as pasta alla carbonara and gnocchi.
