THE BEST WAY TO SEE EUROPE IS BY YOURSELF. The nicest thing about a TWA un guided tour of Europe is that practically nothing is planned for you. Besides plane reservations, hotels, and transportation between cities. You Don't Play "Beat The Clock": A TWA un-guided tour is based on the idea that a person whose life runs by the clock all year long doesn't want a vacation run by the clock. So we let you make your own schedule, with nobody telling you what to do. Alone, But Not Lonely. On such a tour, you'd be alone without being lonely. Because we've arranged for people to give you advice in every city. They can give you directions, tell you where to get a good meal, or help you rent a car. The Law Of The Bus. One of the things people remember about our un-guided tours is how they discovered places on their own. For instance, you might get on a bus and stay on until the end of the line. This is a perfect opportunity to meet the local people and practice the sentences from your phrase book. To get back, use the law of the bus: if you stay on long enough, it goes back to where you started. A Typical Un-typical Day. If you were in Rome you could take the CD bus (at the Piazzale Flaminio) to the Flea Market in Trastevere. After you work up an appetite from bargaining, you could eat at La Cisterna, Alfredo's (their Fettuccine Al Burro is a knock-out), or Corsetti's. Later on, you might like an evening of dancing at Cabala, if your feet hold out. Cheaper Than You Think. You can see these fancy places without paying fancy prices. A typical two-week TWA Bonus Adventure to Lisbon, Madrid, Rome, and Paris starts at $499* Which includes air fare to Europe and between cities, hotels, private bath, breakfast, and the advice of a local host. Of course, TWA has other tours that go all over the world. Your travel agent can help you decide which one suits you best. By now, it should be obvious that a TWA un-guided tour is the best way to see Europe. After all, people on vacation should have the freedom to see what they want to see, whenever they want to see it. r------------------------ TWA, Dept.516, P.O.
