You can choose to go along the four magical stops and enjoy the program to the fullest or pick one, two or more stops at your convenience.

1st Stop

Florida – USA (2 weeks)

Home to beaches, theme parks and plenty of surprises, Florida is often synonymous with Mickey Mouse and sugary sand beaches. A year-round destination, it provides the perfect outlet for folks seeking an escape from wintry chills or simply a relaxed friendly outing. But the true beauty of Florida is that it can open your eyes to unexpected delights – whether you’re a beach bum, adrenaline junkie, nature lover or history buff. Swim with the manatees, see a rocket launch or reach the southernmost point of the continental USA – it’s all possible (and recommended) in the Sunshine State.

4th Stop

Rabat, Marrakesh – Morocco (1 week)

Its location at the intersection of Europe and Africa make Morocco a real crossroads bordered by the waters of the Mediterranean and open to the vast stretches of the Atlantic Ocean. This "farthest land of the setting sun" is rich in contrasts, a destination that beckons you to discover two millennia of history. The landscapes themselves are magnificent. Morocco features both sea and mountain and is home to the full range of Mediterranean climates. With its mix of diverse, captivating panoramas and a rich kaleidoscope of culture, Morocco is an unbeatable destination.

3rd Stop

Prague – Czech Republic (1 week)

Prague is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Its uniquely preserved historical center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1992, reflects eleven centuries of history. This culturally rich city full of fabulous monuments charms visitors not only with its impressive and diverse architecture and breathtaking views but also its intimate, romantic atmosphere that is ideal for long walks. Prague is a city of (not just classical) music and art, found here at every step, a city of gardens and parks, and last but not least, a city where the best beer in the world is brewed and savored.
