Morning guided sightseeing includes a drive past the Latin Quarter, Les Invalides, Place de la Concorde, the Arc de Triomphe, and a stop to take photos of the Eiffel Tower from one of the best panoramic viewing points. Also admire the heart of the city from a different perspective on a SEINE RIVER CRUISE. Board your comfortable boat near the Eiffel Tower and spend a relaxing hour gliding by many of the city's important landmarks such as the L'Institut de France; Notre Dame Cathedral, Hôtel de Ville, the Conciergerie, famous Louvre Palace and museum; and much more. (Note: there are occasions when your city sightseeing in Paris may be affected due to events in the city. On any of these dates, your Monograms sightseeing will be moved to an alternate day to ensure you have the full experience).

Day 3 PARIS

A full day to explore the romantic “City of Light” at your own pace. Your Local Host has many suggestions. Perhaps a visit to the Musee de la Vie Romantique, a quaint museum in a private mansion at the foot of Montmartre Hill, or relax in the Garden of the Tuileries, the largest and oldest public garden in Paris, with a remarkable view toward the Place de la Concorde, the Arc de Triomphe, and the Grande Arche.

Day 5 ROME

Your morning guided sightseeing, with headset, is rich in religious and ancient history. Visit the VATICAN MUSEUMS to see amazing treasures. In the SISTINE CHAPEL, where the Conclave is held to elect new popes, view Michelangelo’s The Last Judgment and his famous ceiling paintings. Enter monumental ST. PETER’S SQUARE and BASILICA, built in 313 AD above St. Peter the Apostle’s tomb and home to Michelangelo’s masterpiece Renaissance sculpture, the Pietà. Cross the Tiber River and continue your immersion in history at the iconic COLOSSEUM, built for 50,000 spectators, and the ROMAN FORUM, where the oldest structures of the ancient city are located. (Please note the Vatican Museum is closed on Wednesdays and Sundays, therefore your included guided sightseeing will be moved to an alternate day. Please be aware of this variation if making independent arrangements for your time at leisure).

The ancient Roman advice carpe diem (seize the day) is still relevant today. Your Local Host will have many ideas for you, such as where to sample the city’s best gelato!
