May 13-14: With great anticipation this afternoon, we’ll gather for our flight to Berlin, Germany (with one stop in route). We’ll arrive around mid day on May 14. A fabulous journey awaits. We will arrive in time to see some of the highlights of Berlin like the famous Brandenburg Gate, Jewish Memorial, Checkpoint Charlie, and have a chance to stroll in beautiful Tiergarten (to keep us awake!). We will then drive down to Freiberg where a delicious welcome dinner awaits overlooking the quaint town square. We’ll have a nice welcome dinner at the hotel and retire early. In flight meals and dinner on May 13.
May 15: This morning we have a session in the Freiberg, Germany Temple. Few temples, if any, have a story like this to tell. The history of the church behind the Iron Curtain is interesting to revisit. After our session, we’ll drive two hours to Eisenach (with a lunch stop on the way). We will visit famous Wartburg Castle where Martin Luther was exiled in the early 16th Century. It was here that Luther translated the Bible from Latin to German. It is a moving place to visit. What happened here changed the world forever. We stay in Eisnach tonight. Breakfast and dinner included today
May 16: After breakfast, (and a quick look at Bach’s house), we will drive two hours to the Frankfurt area. Our first stop is at the Gutenberg Museum where movable type was invented. Lunch is included at a delightful restaurant on the main square in Mainz. We will then show you some highlights in Frankfurt (including the main historic square and the beautiful Main River). After checking into our hotel, we’ll enjoy dinner and a session in the Frankfurt Temple that was recently renovated and rededicated. Breakfast and lunch are included today.
May 17: This morning we get an early start (7:00 AM) as we make our way into France! By mid day, we’ll be in Remis where we’ll enjoy a one hour tour of the magnificent Reims Cathedral. Since we can’t visit Notre Dame in Paris (because of the 2019 fire), this is the next best thing. Built in the same style, and larger then Notre Dame, it is well worth a visit. You’ll then enjoy lunch on your own before we continue into the Paris area where we’ll spend two nights. We will stay in Versailles tonight near the temple. After freshening up, we’ll enjoy a session in the beautiful Paris Temple. Breakfast included today.
May 18: Today we enjoy Paris. It is Saturday so traffic is light and we can enjoy it. We’ll see all those places that make it famous: Eiffel Tower, Champs Elysees, Arc de Triomphe, Concord Square, River Sein and much more. Time for lunch and browsing around the Tuileries Gardens. In the afternoon, we’ll enjoy a visit to the Gardens at the Palace of Versailles. This was the lavish home of the French Monarchy that is fascinating to see. Dinner is included at our hotel tonight. Breakfast and dinner are included today.
May 19: Today we travel through rural France enjoying the sweeping vistas, quaint towns and rolling hills that make rural France famous. We’ll venture off the motorway and visit the quaint town of Essoyes, home to the famous impressionist painter, Renoir. The little town square is on a small river surrounded by the scenic hills. We’ll stroll through the quaint streets to Renoir’s house and studio and have a picnic lunch prepared by the local baker. Delicious! Our afternoon drive takes us back across the border into the famous Black Forest of Germany which is a MUST SEE if you’re anywhere near it. We’ll stay at the famous Hofgut Sternen Hotel, famous for its setting, cuckoo clocks and some very interesting history that we’ll share. Dinner is included at the hotel. Breakfast and dinner are included today.
May 20: This hotel is fabulous. We’ll stay until 10:00 this morning so you can walk in the forest, do some shopping or just relax in this beautiful, wooded setting. We’ll make a picture stop at Lake Titisee before continuing south and crossing the border into Switzerland. By lunchtime, we’ll be in the Swiss capitol of Bern which is a delightful place to visit. A local guide will join us this afternoon and show is this medieval town from the famous Rose Gardens to the Bear Pits to the centuries old streets with their iconic fountains (including Einstein’s house). Bern is one of the most interesting cities in Europe and we can’t wait to show it to you. We’ll stay at the Holiday Inn tonight. Breakfast and local tour included today.
May 21: Another fabulous day in store. We will begin with an 8:00 AM session at the beautiful Bern, Switzerland Temple – the first temple in Europe. We then drive an hour and enjoy lunch in charming Interlaken. Just 20 minutes south of Interlaken is (in my opinion) the most beautiful valley in Europe! It’s called the Lauterbrunnen Valley and it is spectacularly situated with steep mountains on three sides, flanked by the majestic Jungfrau Massif, three of the most famous mountains in the Alps (Monch, Jungfrau, Eiger). While in the valley, we’ll take you to the stunning Trumelbach Falls which is a series of 10 waterfalls that cascade INSIDE a mountain. It is a spectacular natural wonder. After exiting the valley, we will take a scenic train ride through the mountain and into Zermatt – one of the world’s greatest towns. We’ll stay here two nights. Breakfast included today.
May 22: There is simply no place on earth like Zermatt and no mountain like the Matterhorn. This is a pedestrian town and the only place you can see the Matterhorn in Switzerland. Our morning excursion takes us on the Gornergrat, Europe’s highest railway, which takes us closer to the base of the Matterhorn. The views can’t be overstated. You have free time this afternoon to enjoy Zermatt as you wish – there is lots to do. Dinner is included tonight. Breakfast and dinner are included today.
May 23: This morning we depart for Tasch to meet our bus. We then continue over the fabulous Simplon Pass into Italy where we spend the next several days. By late morning, we will arrive in the town of Stesa on the shores of beautiful Lake Maggiore. This is the famous Italian Lakes District with mountain scenes, lakeside towns and hillsides dotted with private villas. After lunch, we have included a boat ride to Isola Bella, one of the Borromean Islands in the middle of lake Maggiore. The island is quite small and split between a fabulous palace, manicured Italian gardens and a quaint fishing village. You’ll have time to explore it as you wish. We then continue on this afternoon into Bologna for the evening. Breakfast and dinner are included today.
May 24: We’ll drive into Florence this morning, one of the greatest cities in the world. We’ll stop at the Piazza Michelangelo and admire it from above. We will enjoy a 3 hour walking tour with a chance to see the iconic places in this great city – like the Duomo, the Baptistry, the River Arno (Ponte Vecchio), Palazzo Vecchio, and of course the highlight: A chance to see The David in the Academy. (Note: A fair amount of walking is required to see Florence as coaches are not allowed into the center of the city). We then continue into Rome where we will spend two evenings. Breakfast included today.
May 25: WELCOME TO ROME! Today is Saturday and we’ll begin our day at the fabulous Rome Temple, dedicated in March, 2019. This is the first temple built in a Biblical land and there is no experience to match the setting and graundeur of the temple, piazza and Visitors Center. In the afternoon, we will show you the most famous sites of Rome including the Colosseum, The Forum, the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Trevi Fountain and more. We have a lovely dinner tonight near our hotel. Breakfast and dinner are included today.
May 26: This morning we will visit St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican. It is the largest and grandest in all of Catholicism and the art and architecture (including Michelangelo’s Pieta) is absolutely stunning.
