Bologna and Emilio-Romagna - Sample the diverse and delicious flavors of this slice of Northern Italy and take in the glorious art and culture along the way: cheese and mosaics in Parma; balsamic vinegar and racecars in Modena; and ham, pasta, and university life in Bologna. The mountainous Apennines, Ravenna's sixth-century mosaics, and a Rimini beach resort complete your excursion.
Veneto and Dolomite - After a night at the opera in Verona's Roman arena, set out in search of Giotto's colorful frescoes in Padua and architect Palladio's villas in Vicenza and the surrounding countryside. Then head for the hills and the dramatic peaks and meadows of the Dolomite Mountains.
Switzerland and the Alps - From the year-round playground of Interlaken, sail across glacial Lake Brienz. Thrill to a heart-stopping gondola ride to alpine heights in the spectacular Lauterbrunnen Valley, and hike past flower-filled meadows and mountain chalets. Enjoy shopping, chocolate, and taste Swiss cuisine in vibrant Zurich.
Christmas in Switzerland - Celebrate the joys of a Switzerland Christmas, where Christmas markets and toasty ski lodges offer good cheer. From Zurich with its glittering trees and festive music, veer off the beaten path to the medieval towns of Bremgarten and Einsiedeln. Dog sledding on a glacier and a visit with Father Christmas raise holiday spirits.
