Day Trips

Often the greatest treasures, sights and moments can be found just outside of your city walls. Only a short distance from Europe's major cities, you can find yourself hiking for the day in Cinque Terre, tasting wine in Tuscany or riding a gondola in Venice. Sometimes you need a breather from the rush of your current city. Step outside your city's walls, breathe in the air and join us for a fantastic day trip to Europe's greatest treasures. 

"Every one of my experiences surpassed my expectations and blew me away completely. The trip leaders know what they are talking about and make the trips even more fun than already are. My first trip abroad was with Bus2alps to Cinque Terre. These cities were incredible and the Bus2alps staff knew all of the great places to go and made it much more interesting. These trips really give you the best value for you money. If you're hesitant about doing a trip with them, don't be. Bus2alps is definitely the way to go." - Nick S.
