10 or 13 days
Rothenburg, Munich, Venice, Lucerne, Heidelberg, extension to Paris

Take a multi-city lap around the Alps for a comprehensive understanding of the region's people and traditions.

From Munich's Hofbräuhaus, where Mozart once wrote an opera, to the pink-and-white Doge's Palace, where Venetian dukes once ruled, the history is as rich as the food. Pause for reflection at Lucerne's Lion Monument, commemorating Swiss Guards killed in the French Revolution, which Mark Twain described as "the most mournful and moving piece of stone in the world."
