6:00pm (GMT) Meeting point is the landing area at AVALON Island.

:10 To start the tour we teleport to Roma and Italia Vera, where you can find the largest community of Italian citizens in this elaborate reconstruction of the true Italy. We also will visit the Sistine Chapel, a stunning and accurate-to-scale recreation of the chapel, a place to admire the hirstoric and beautiful artwork.

:20 We then look forward to the glamurous architecture of historic Munich, move onto Cologne Cathedral, a highly detailled recreation of the famous World Heritage building and then take some pictures at Berlin’s Brandenburger Tor. We will not have time to meander the streets of 1920s Berlin but with these landmarks you can come back at any time.

:30 Then we aim for London, of course, land at Hyde Park Corner, smile at lonely Big Ben without (!) the Houses of Parlament only to quickly move onto the famous central London cathedral St. Paul’s Cathedral’s which was originally designed by Sir Christopher Wren in the 17th century.

:40 Heartwarming Paris is next and after we group to take pictures of the Tour Eiffel and the Arc de Triomph we will then walk the streets of 1900 Paris, a time when romance and revolution were in the air and the Moulin Rouge the hottest ticket in town.

:50 Then we visit Piata Revolutiei at virtual Bucharest, a place complete with Athenneum, National Museum of Art, Hilton Hotel and Central University Library

:00 Next we continue to explore a thriving Czech and Slovakia community at a Bohemian village.

:10 During the second hour of this event we leave the crowded cities to stop at Inverness to enjoy crystal clear air and old castles on Scottland’s highland. If we are lucky we can even catch a picture of Nessie.

:20 Then we hop back to France to admire the beautiful French landmark Mont Saint Michel.

:30 Finally we will drop of everyone at Heart Reef Resort, an authentic Greek island sim, featuring replicas of Santorini and Mykonos.

If you can volunteer to be a tourguide to any of these places so that we learn more about it, please feel free to let us know.
