3 NIGHTS ROME, 3 NIGHTS PARIS & 3 NIGHTS LONDON(DRR)
Some say, “Only Paris is worthy of Rome; only Rome is worthy of Paris.” At Monograms, we don’t agree entirely, because we think London is worthy of both! That’s why we’ve put together a vacation package with all three—Rome, Paris, and London. In fact, on this travel package, we’ve arranged your hotel reservations in all three cities, daily breakfast, sightseeing, transportation between cities, and transfers from/to your hotel to/from the train stations. Plus, a one-of-a-kind feature is the Monograms Local Host®, someone who is on hand throughout your stay to answer questions, arrange your activities, offer suggestions, and help maximize your vacation time. We’ve arranged for you to have a Local Host in Rome, Paris, and London.
Your vacation package begins the moment you arrive in Rome, where we can pick you up at the airport and seamlessly whisk you to your selected hotel. Here, your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome, help you get settled, and present you with a set of materials to familiarize you with the city. In fact, in each city—Rome, Paris, & London—your Local Host will meet you on your first day, help you get settled, and give you a Destination Guide full of useful information on the city. In each city, we’ve also arranged sightseeing with a local expert. Hear the inside stores about the must-see attractions and learn little-known secrets as you see each city’s famous landmarks.
In Rome, your sightseeing includes the Vatican Museums, where you’ll see its amazing treasures; the Sistine Chapel, where you’ll view Michelangelo’s The Last Judgment and his famous ceiling paintings; St. Peter’s Square and Basilica, built in 313 AD; the iconic Colosseum, famous for its gladiator fights; and the Roman Forum, where you’ll see the oldest structures of the ancient city. In addition to famous sights such as the Arc de Triomphe, your Paris sightseeing tour features Notre Dame Cathedral, dating back to 1163, and a Seine River cruise, a beautiful way to see Paris. In London, see Big Ben and Westminster Abbey, where Prince William and Kate Middleton were married, and visit St. Paul’s Cathedral, where you’ll hear the fascinating history of this iconic cathedral. We’ll also take you to see the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace. And never fear…the inside visits included in your Monograms vacation include VIP access, which means you get to skip the lines! After all, why wait in line with all the other tourists when you can be up close and personal with the attractions? In Rome alone, that will save you over four hours of vacation time!
In each city, you’ll have time to explore on your own (with the support of your Local Host, of course). You may want to shop at the famous department stores, such as Harrods and Selfridges in London; at the designer Italian boutiques along Rome’s Via Conditti; or at the Galeries Lafayette in Paris, where we’ve secured shopping discounts for you. Perhaps take an excursion from Rome to Tivoli, where Hadrian built his villa at the peak of the Roman Empire; to the Palace of Versailles from Paris; and to mysterious Stonehenge near London. The possibilities in each city are endless!
And did we mention your Monograms travel package includes transportation between the cities? We’ve included your seat on the high-speed Eurostar train from Paris to London. We’ve even included transfers from your Rome hotel to the airport, from the Paris airport to your hotel, from your Paris hotel to the train station, and from the London train station to your selected hotel. With the transportation and transfers we’ve included, the sightseeing and guides we’ve arranged, and the hotels we’ve booked, you just have to remember your camera! Add the comfort of knowing you’ll have Local Host for you throughout your stay, and it’s a vacation of a lifetime.

Benvenuto—welcome! Your Local Host is on hand to help maximize your time in the “Eternal City.”
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. Also on the agenda today, see 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. Across the Tiber River, 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. (Note that there are occasions when the Vatican Museum is closed. On any of these dates, your full Monograms city sightseeing will be moved to an alternate day to ensure you have the full insider experience.)
Ask your Local Host about wonderful ideas for your day at leisure, such as the Giardino degli Aranci (Orange Garden) on Aventine Hill for a magnificent view of the city.
Travel to Paris by AIR on selected flights.
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; magnificent Notre Dame Cathedral where Napoleon was crowned emperor in 1804; Hôtel de Ville, the city’s municipal headquarters; the Conciergerie, formerly a notorious prison where Marie-Antoinette spent the last days of her life; famous Louvre Palace and museum; and much more.
Your Local Host has many ideas for your day at leisure. Perhaps visit the Musée d’Orsay, or find out where to shop for the quintessential French beret!
Travel by HIGH-SPEED EUROSTAR TRAIN (Standard class) to London.
Morning guided sightseeing includes all of London’s famous landmarks. Drive past the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben; Westminster Abbey where Prince William and Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, were married; Whitehall’s mounted horseguards; the Prime Minister’s Downing Street; Piccadilly Circus; and Buckingham Palace. Take photographs of the London Eye, the giant Ferris wheel situated on the riverbank; and the Shard, the tallest building in Western Europe. Visit ST. PAUL’S CATHEDRAL (except on Sundays). Sir Christopher Wren’s masterpiece with its world-famous dome is an iconic feature of London’s skyline, and the awe-inspiring interior holds fascinating stories about its history.
Full day at leisure. Your Local Hosts will have interesting suggestions. For example, visit one of the Tate Galleries. Tate Modern exhibits international and contemporary art, whereas Tate Britain is the home of British art from 1500 to the present.
Your vacation ends with breakfast this morning.
