Transporting you between four renowned capital cities in a single journey, our Classic Prague & Danube Delights tour is the perfect choice for the discerning culture seeker. Over the course of this fabulous 11-day itinerary, you’ll explore Prague, Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest — four of Europe’s most beautiful capital cities — as well as a string of other fascinating historic towns and cities like Passau, Nuremberg, Melk and Dürnstein. There’s natural beauty aplenty, too, as the mighty river Danube carves a course through the foothills of the Austrian Alps and into the esteemed Wachau Valley wine region. Your journey begins with a 3-night city break in Prague, where you’ll discover cultural wonders like the Old Town Square and Mozart’s Theatre. Then, you’ll fly to medieval Nuremberg for the start of your river cruise on the Danube, an 8-day journey which sees you cross four countries on your way to Budapest, the queen of the river.
