Overview

Experience more of Europe’s most treasured destinations, beginning with a wonderful three-night city stay in the Czech capital of Prague and followed by an 8-day Danube river cruise. Natural beauty is plentiful, as this mighty waterway carves a course through the foothills of the Austrian Alps, journeying between four renowned capital cities, the esteemed Wachau Valley wine region and a string of other fascinating historic towns and cities, like Passau, Nuremberg, Melk and Dürnstein.
