|We saw the Castles of the Rhine. There are a lot of them!||We cruised the Rhine River. It was bank-full and almost overflowing. Here are Renée and our new friend Laura.|
|Here we are in the beautiful Tyrolean Alps. The scenery throughout Europe was breath-taking.||Our Tour Director, Hanni, was a font of information. Here she is describing the castle of Heidelberg. We loved her!!|
|A wonderful Italian named Luigi was our driver. He and Renée hit it off right away!||The Rheinfalls are an awe-inspiring sight. This is through the window of our restaurant.|
|Another great view of the Alps. The bus made frequent photo (and potty) stops.||Then we arrived in Venice. Even the pigeons in St. Mark's Square didn't bother Renée too much!|
|One of the absolute high points of the trip was the gondola serenade on the canals of Venice!||ROMA! Renée returned to the days of the Senators and the Centurions at the Collusseum.|
|St. Peter's square is one of the things you must see on any trip to Europe. We also saw the newly-restored Sistine Chapel.||Our Tour Group had a special dinner at a Roman restaurant. The waiter Umberto and his cohort Roberto kept all the girls in stitches!!|
|The Leaning Tower of Pisa. What else can I say??||Renée overlooks the wonderful city of Florence with its magnificent Italian Gothic cathedral.|
|Mike finally got his pizza in Florence!!||Then we drove along the Italian Riviera to Nice, passing by Monaco on the way.|
|Unfortunately, our camera malfunctioned at this point so we missed some pictures.||We visited the bridge at Avignon and saw a mime performing with trained cats!|
|In Paris we were caught on the deck of the Eiffel Tower in a great thunder and hail storm!||We toured the palace of the Sun King at Versailles and were suitably impressed.|
Here is our group picture. It was a great trip, and we especially want to thank Tour Director Hanni, Driver Luigi, and Globus Travel for making it a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
