Colosseum Hotel

Want to visit all seven new wonders of the world? Do you have a spare three months and £15,000 ($27,000 AU)? This new round-the-world tour might be for you.

Tour operator Contiki has created an epic 82-day round-the-world trip that takes in all the new seven wonders of the world – including the Taj Mahal, the Great Wall of China and Machu Picchu.

The "7 Wonders" trip departs next March and visits seven countries across four continents, beginning in Delhi and ending in Rome. Prices start from £15,000 including all international flights and pre- and post-trip accommodation.

Stops on the three-month trip are: the Taj Mahal in India; the Great Wall of China; Chichen Itza in Mexico, Machu Picchu in Peru, Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Petra in Jordan; and the Colosseum in Italy. As well as visiting the monuments, travellers will spend an average of 12 days exploring each country.

The new seven wonders of the world were chosen from a list of 200 existing monuments following a campaign Swiss philanthropist Bernard Weber in 2000. The winners announced in 2007, with Britain's Stonehenge, the Acropolis in Athens, Cambodia's Angkor Wat and the Kremlin in Moscow some of the landmarks didn't make the final cut.

The new seven wonders

Great Wall of China, China

Machu Picchu, Peru

Christ the Redeemer, Brazil

South America’s biggest icon is the 30m high art deco statue of Jesus Christ on a hilltop in Rio de Janeiro, unveiled in 1931.

Petra, Jordan
