Planning for a two-week itinerary in Europe may be difficult; the continent boasts more than 40 countries, each with their own unique charms, after all. From the romantic architecture of Paris to the thundering Trümmelbach Falls in Switzerland, there’s a gem to be unearthed for city and nature lovers alike.

Immerse yourself in the scenic gondola rides down the canals of Venice, and take a train across the spectacular scenery with views of nature’s finest in Switzerland. Finally, end your fulfilling vacation in the historic Prague, where you can find friendly locals who are always up for a chat in bustling bars decked out in old-school ornaments.

First stop: floating city of Venice

Take your first day slowly. Depending on where you’re flying in from, you may be feeling fatigued from the side effects of bad jet lag creeping up on you. Have a stroll around the airport, just soaking up the foreign chatter to familiarize yourself with the environment that you’ll be in for the next 3 days or so.

Day 2

In the morning: touring Venice on the water

To start off your day, wake up bright and early and get on the No.1 Vaporetto. Cruise from the Piazzale Roma to San Marco, all whilst being surrounded by the sights of towering ancient buildings that have withstood the test of time to stand tall in aged beauty on the streets of Venice. Your journey on the water will take around 40 minutes, so for those who get motion sickness easily, be sure to bring necessary medication along. The Vaporetto arrives at an interval of 10 minutes in the morning, and every 20 minutes when the sun sets. The best spots are definitely at the bow of the vessel, where you get to marvel at the intricately carved ceilings inside the palazzi that line the canal. You can get an ACTV single-fare ticket or a Tourist Travel Card, which offers much better value if you plan to travel by boat over the course of 7-12 hours.

You are recommended to purchase all of your tickets and travel cards on land via three main ways: at the ACTV ticket office, from the manual ticket machine, and from the boat attendant. If you find the staffed ticket points to be closed, purchase your tickets from the ACTV touch-screen ticket machine for convenience. Lastly, if you can’t find any of these at the Vaporetto station that you’re at, ask for a ticket from the conductor, but be quick about it as the fines can be heavy if you’re caught on board without a ticket. Check out the website below for the detailed timetable of the water buses.

In the afternoon: taking a spin around the old town

The old town of Niederdorf is reminiscent of an old medieval city, where traces of rare half-timbered houses can be found between the low, narrow alleys. Niederdorf covers the streets between Central and Bellevue and is affectionately coined as the ‘Dörfli’ by locals. If there’s one thing you must try before you leave, it is the highly raved about fondue restaurants of Zurich! Satisfy your sweet tooth by going for a chocolate fondue, or try something new by using tomato sauce as the dip. If you want an authentic taste of Swiss cuisine, definitely drop by the Swiss Chuchi restaurant for a mouth-watering array of cheese fondues to accompany your sizzling rosti. Fair warning, though: some people have complained of the strong smell of the unfamiliar cheese, but there’s a first for everything, so feel free to try it out before passing judgement!

Back in 1142, Kutná Hora was just a small city starting out with its first settlement of the Cistercian monastery in Bohemia. Established as the center for silver mining in Bohemia, it allowed the city to flourish during the economic boom of the 13th century.

Now, the glimmering facades of the city are long gone, replaced instead by rustic exteriors suspended in time. The creepy bone church of the Sedlec Ossuary, for example, is an eerie memento mori, housing up to 70,000 bones. Walk down the well-preserved streets for a taste of the past, and spend a relaxing day by the town square people watching. The quaint atmosphere of this ghost town is unusually calming.
