Jewels of Europe with Paris and Prague

21 days & 20 nights, Private Journey

Paris, Amsterdam, Cologne, Marksburg, Rhine Gorge, Rudesheim, Freudenberg, Wurzburg, Bamberg, Nuremberg, Regensburg, Passau, Salzburg, Melk, Durnstein, Vienna, Budapest & Prague

From Paris, Europe's 'city of light', to Prague, the 'Paris of the East', this is a journey that begins and ends with two of Europe's most beautiful cities, and features a string of glittering towns in between. Travel the canals of Amsterdam, where meandering waterways bypass buildings that haven't changed since Holland's great voyages of discovery centuries ago. Visit Cologne, with its towering cathedral, and timeless Vienna, spiritual home to Europe's greatest composers. If you're after great food, there's more than enough in this itinerary to get you salivating, including visits to Regensburg, known for its delectable wurst, and Bamberg, equally famous for its world-class beer. And if you're looking for more than just cuisine, rest assured - stops at Marksburg Castle, Nuremberg and Melk will provide a feast for all the senses.
