I decided to step outside the box and plan my first trip to Europe. For 20 years, I had never really traveled much. On top of that, I had never traveled on my own, so what I was about to do was beyond my comfort level. Through European Dream with Trafalgar, I was going to cover 7 major cities in 4 different countries in 10 days. During the tour, I was going to cover the historic hotspots of Italy, venture to the vast valleys of the Swiss alps, get lost in France’s city of love, and roam through the English capital’s bustling streets.

European Highlights with Trafalgar was a fast paced, dream vacation. This is the perfect trip for first time Europe travelers, who want to cover a lot of countries and see a little bit of everything, in a short period of time. We got to visit 5 countries, that I’ve never been to, over the course of 9 days. We had tons of included meals, experiences and free time.
