Itinerary in detail

Every Jacada trip is tailored to your personal preferences and interests. Below you’ll find a sample itinerary to inspire your own custom-designed journey.

Days 1–4

Spend three nights exploring London

The first stop on this ten-day trip will see you and your family explore the grandeur of England’s capital. London is one of the most exhilarating and diverse cities in the world. This thriving metropolis has a rich history evident at every street corner and yet it continues to innovate. See the regal sites of the British monarchy like the Horse Guards Parade and Buckingham Palace as well as important religious and cultural buildings, such as the historic Westminster Abbey, Houses of Parliament and Shakespeare’s Globe. The whole family will soon be experts in British history.

Sightseeing highlights

Westminster Abbey

Westminster Abbey stands next to the magnificent Houses of Parliament and is steeped in more than 1,000 years of history. It has been the setting for every coronation since 1066, as well as 16 royal weddings. It is one of Britain’s most important religious buildings, and here you’ll discover a panorama of British history.

The Tower of London

One of the city’s most famous landmarks, the Tower of London has seen several phases of expansion, mainly under Kings Richard the Lionheart, Henry III, and Edward I in the 12th and 13th centuries. The Tower is perhaps best known as a prison, a function it performed from 1100 right up until 1952. A highlight for many are the Crown Jewels. Still regularly used by The Queen in important national ceremonies, they are the most powerful symbols of the British Monarchy, holding deep religious and cultural significance in the nation’s history.

Royal London

Britain is renowned for its pomp and ceremony and the British Royal Family is the most famous in the world. With your guide, walk past the halls of government power in Whitehall to Horse Guards Parade and visit the small museum that tells the story of the Household Cavalry. Take a walk through St. James’s Park to Buckingham Palace, official residence of the King and then pass by the Royal Mews and the guardians of the Gold State Coach, lookout for royal horses.

Maps & adventure

Walking & culture

History & theatre

Hunt treasure in the British Museum

Journey around the world’s history through the British Museum’s collections of cultural artefacts on this special treasure hunt. You’ll discover how ancient civilisations used to entertain themselves, from the Egyptians (who were so keen on board games they buried their dead with them) to the Mesopotamians (creators of backgammon) to the traditional Roman knucklebones. At the end, the winners will receive medals in a prize-giving ceremony.

Explore the Southbank

London’s unofficial culture mile, the Southbank boasts free exhibitions, movies at the British Film Institute and shows at the National Theatre. To escape the crowds, either dive into Southwark Cathedral where Shakespeare worshipped or head around the corner to the George Inn, the only remaining galleried inn in London.

Visit Shakespeare's Globe

The Southbank’s world-class cultural institutions include Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. Step back in time as you enter into this reconstruction of Shakespeare’s premier venue, where people still flock to see productions of the Bard’s work.

Days 4–7

Three fun-filled nights in Paris

After three nights in the vibrant English capital, you’ll travel by Eurostar across the Channel to Paris. The French capital is seductive, stunning and timeless. Stroll along cobbled avenues, people-watch in picturesque French cafés, step into haute-couture boutiques and dip into fascinating museums and galleries. There’s plenty to do and see that captivates little ones. Everyone can recreate their favourite patisserie with a private class in French baking. The most visited art museum in the world, The Louvre, comes to life through an educational and interactive treasure hunt.

Art, food and history in Paris

A Louvre family tour

On a Louvre tour designed for families, you’ll visit the museum together in a fun and meaningful way. Puzzle through the ‘Paris Muse Clues’, an educational and interactive treasure hunt that takes the family and your personal guide through a broad range of collections. Children gain an understanding to the history of art while sharpening their detective skills of observation. Their own answers to the clues lead them to discover a prize hidden somewhere under the Louvre’s glass pyramid.

Dessert called Paris Brest made from choux pastry

Baking at a private Parisian apartment

In the friendly and informal atmosphere of a Parisian apartment, learn to make delicious patisserie from scratch. Try your hand at the classics or tackle choux pastry with a culinary expert to guide you. This basic pastry dough can be used to make both sweet and savoury delights, from appetisers to cream puffs.

The backstage tour of Versailles

After visiting the main rooms of the palace, enjoy exclusive access to apartments and rooms closed to the public, such as the apartments of Madame de Tourvel, secret passages and a gallery located above the Hall of Mirrors.

Days 7–10

Spend three nights exploring Rome

Your last stop takes you to the epicentre of European culture and history. Rome, Italy’s capital and largest city, needs little introduction. See the city like the locals with a ride on a Vespa, the most popular and stylish mode of transport, before travelling back in time to the age of Michelangelo on a tour of the Vatican City. No trip to Italy would be complete without a taste of the country’s most prized cuisine: pizza. You’ll learn essential and lifelong skills at an authentically Italian pizza-making class, leaving with a new team of pizza bakers ready to take on dinner duty.

Street life in Rome

The sights of Vatican City

The Vatican City is the smallest state in the world, covering just 0.44 square kilometres. At the sprawling Vatican Museum, you’ll tour the seemingly endless collection of treasures as you make your way to the single work of art that dwarfs them all: Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel, the best-known chapel in the Apostolic Palace, the official residence of the Pope in the Vatican City. This tour will end with the extraordinary St. Peter’s Basilica designed principally by Donato Bramante, Michelangelo, Carlo Maderno and Gian Lorenzo Bernini.

Take a pizza-making workshop

No visit to Italy would be complete without tasting an authentic Italian pizza, but what better way to experience this Italian dish than making your own? You’ll be welcomed by a professional pizza maker and be taken through the process. You’ll get to knead the dough, create the toppings, pop it into the oven and, best of all, eat your creation too.

Set off on a Vespa tour

See the sights of Rome from the back of a vintage Vespa, in true ‘Roman Holiday’ style as you weave your way through large avenues to tiny alleyways. The tour will be led by a private bilingual guide and will take in all the most important monuments and neighbourhoods. Driven by professional Vespa drivers, passengers are assured complete safety and peace of mind.

Join Gladiator School

Appropriately attired in a toga, wooden sword in hand, learn the basics of hand-to-hand combat at a gladiator school led by members of the Historic Group of Rome. You’ll discover the secrets of Imperial Rome’s infamous gladiator games, get hands-on with ancient history and be shown around the museum on this fun two-hour tour.
