ADD ON A EUROPEAN CITY FROM ONLY $199
A multi-coloured myriad of sights, culture and great storytelling stretching over 2,000 years, this is the great British metropolis of London. In this iconic capital, history hides around every corner and as you explore the city, you’re bound to find your very own version of what London is. First-time visitors should start their day alighting from the underground station of Westminster. Upon exiting, you’ll find yourself right in front the Houses of Parliament and its instantly recognisable clock, Big Ben. Walk out on the adjacent Westminster Bridge for a perfect view of the entire building as well as the mighty River Thames that flows underneath. Head back past Big Ben again, for a visit to the majestic Westminster Cathedral, before making your way to Buckingham Palace. After checking to see if the Queen is home, you can stroll slowly up The Mall to Trafalgar Square where Lord Nelson has stood faithfully on his column for the last 200 years. The London Underground network reaches out into the furthest nooks of the city and so far we have only really scratched the surface. Head to Whitechapel in East London for a classic Jack the Ripper tour, walk in the footsteps of Sherlock Holmes from his apartment in Baker Street, experience the Beefeaters at the Tower of London or see the dome of St Paul’s Cathedral. You can also choose to cross the Thames to see the gigantic Shard, the museum of Tate Modern and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. The British capital is a constant offering of activities of things to do and see, and navigating the underground network, double-decker busses or black cabs will serve up a city of plenty.
Paris is the perfect melange of French chic and romanticism. Beautifully integrating its rich cultural importance with history, wine, food, modern vibes and more food and wine. The life of the city springs eternal from its sources of romantic streets, wide boulevards and strands that follow the River Seine. Paris was redesigned in the nineteenth century and along its linear boulevards and squares, you’ll find several architectural and historical monuments and sights. Apart from visits to the main attractions of Paris, such as the iconic steel monolith of the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the fantastic paintings of Monet and van Gogh at the Musée d’Orsay, and the gargoyles perched next to the spires of the Notre Dame Cathedral, the city has plenty of gems hiding in plain sight around every corner. See the Louvre and the Sacré-Coeur lit up at night, gaze across the vast city from the Montparnasse Tower and listen to the leaves rustling against a gentle breeze at the Pere Lachaise cemetery. Spend an afternoon exploring the adorable narrow streets in the Montmartre and Le Marais areas, and don’t forget to sample the local street food, a delicious reminder of France’s great cultural and gastronomical allure. In Paris you can lose yourself in times gone by in one street before immersing yourself in modern experiences around the next corner. The profusion of things on offer in the city means that you can make your stay exactly what you want it to be. Bon appétit!
